Washington Winning Numbers
Washington Lottery Games
Founded in November 1982, the Washington’s Lottery (its official name) offers a selection of multi-jurisdictional and locally run games, including opportunities to win significant sums of money every day.
Proceeds from the Washington Lottery are mostly used to fund educational initiatives, with cash also being committed to the state’s General Fund, to economic development and to support problem gambling groups.
Powerball is a world-famous lottery renowned for its long odds and often lucrative jackpots.
Powerball tickets cost $2.00, with players choosing five numbers between 1 and 69 plus a Powerball number between 1 and 26. Players can choose their numbers manually or go for a Quick Pick. A Power Play option is also available, costing $1.00 for the chance to multiply non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times.
For an additional $1.00, players can add Double Play to their ticket using the same set of chosen numbers, for an additional draw with a $10 million jackpot.
Mega Millions is another world-renowned lottery that’s even harder to win than Powerball, but with a very similar format.
As with Powerball, tickets cost $2.00.
Players must choose five numbers between 1 and 70 and a Mega Ball number between 1 and 25, with a Quick Pick option also available for those wishing to play with random selections. Mega Millions has an additional Megaplier option for $1.00, for the chance to multiply non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times.
Lotto is a traditional lottery using the familiar 6 from 49 format. Entry costs $1.00 for two sets of six numbers from 1 to 49, with Quick Picks also available for random selections.
Daily Keno has multiple entry-based and stake-based options.
Players must decide on how many numbers to match from 1 to 10, before choosing the relevant number of selections between 1 and 80. Quick Picks are available for random selections, with participants needing to choose a stake of $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $4.00, $5.00, $10 or $20.
Hit 5 is a straightforward lottery that costs just $1.00 to enter.
Players choose five numbers between 1 and 42 or can go for a Quick Pick to enter with randomly chosen numbers.
Match 4 is an easy-to-play lottery game that costs $2.00 to enter.
Participants must choose four numbers between 1 and 24 or can go for a Quick Pick to play with random selections.
Pick 3 has multiple entry options, with initial stakes of $0.50 and $1.00 being available.
Players must choose three numbers from 0 to 9, and because each number is chosen independently, the same number can be chosen repeatedly if desired. Participants then choose whether to bet on matching numbers in the order drawn, in any order, or on matching the front or back pairs of numbers in exact order.
Players can also choose a Superbox bet: a Combo bet with every possible combination of the three player-chosen numbers. This increases the ticket cost to as much as $6.00 depending on the numbers chosen.
