Winning the lottery is something everyone is doing about. Getting the winning Super Bowl ticket is almost impossible considering the odds. But, if you do, you would win hundreds of millions of dollars. In the last Powerball, the prize pool was around $1.5 billion and the winner got around 350 million in a lump sum which is a crazy amount. However, as you said previously, the odds say that it is impossible to win which is probably why you should resort to playing more local stuff such as the Vermont lottery.
Yes, it may not be as big as the Powerball, but you could still get hundreds of thousands of dollars or even millions. Nowadays, there are several different drug games available from the In-House Tri-State lottery commission. Right now, the most profitable option would be the Megabucks Plus game which has a minimum jackpot of $1 million. Does not sound too bad when you consider that the game costs two dollars.
In this article, I want to focus on that Vermont lottery and explain everything you need to know about it. How and where to play, how much you can win and I will try to answer all the questions you may have about this topic.
For those that want a larger risk in a bigger reward, the Tri-State Megabucks is the perfect game. Of course, the odds will not be favorable because there will be hundreds of thousands of users and millions of tickets. But, if you do not take a risk, you will never win anything.
Like I said previously, this is one of the more interesting offers in Vermont these days because the minimum jackpot is $1 million. The entry is just two dollars.
Do not worry, this is a reliable and trustworthy game because it has been around since 2009. People have been getting all kinds of jackpots since then.
The number drawing for the Tri-State Megabucks is on Wednesdays and Saturdays around 11 PM.
The last draw, in January 2024 had no jackpots and no winners of the $30,000 prize. This is a good thing because there is a higher chance that you might win something in the next drawing. So, make sure you grab a ticket and see what is going to happen on Wednesdays or Saturdays.
Keep in mind, the other prize amounts are at $1300, $150, $25, and a few other values that are not really impressive.
The Gimme5 lottery might not be as impressive because the top prize is around $100,000. But that is still a huge amount that could have a huge impact on your life. You could pay out debts, buy a car or even buy a house if you wanted to.
Of course, the chances of winning the top prize are very low, but anything could happen, right? You might not be lucky today, tomorrow, but you might get the jackpot someday. You just have to be consistent and keep playing. Although, you should keep in mind that there could be multiple winners, so the jackpot is going to be split.
The drawings are on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at around 7 PM. Make sure you do not miss it if you have a ticket.
Lucky for life
There are a few more In-House Tri-State Lottery Commission draw games, but the prizes on these are not very impressive, so I thought that I should jump to the multi-jurisdictional lotteries that offer a huge price pool of millions of dollars.
The first one I have to mention is lucky for life which takes on things a little bit differently. Instead of getting a huge lump sum once you are picked as a winner, you get $1000 every day for an entire lifetime.
Just imagine, every day, you get $1000 that you can spend on anything you want. In 10 days, you will have enough money to buy a nice second-hand car. In 20 days, you will have enough to buy a brand-new car. In 50 days, you are going to have enough cash to buy an entire house. But, the odds for that are 1:30,821,472 as suggested by lotteryamerica.com. Of course, if you don’t like those odds, you have the option to pick from the other Vermont Lottery Games.
The second-place prize works a little bit differently. You get to receive $25,000 every year for your entire lifetime. It is not as big as getting $365,000 every year, but 25,000 is still a lot. Knowing that you are going to get such a huge sum of money every year is quite comforting.
The other prizes are fixed amounts that start from $5000 and end at four dollars.
The drawings for the lucky for life games are on Mondays and Thursdays at 10:38 PM.
Vermont Mega Millions
I game that costs only two dollars, but with a prize pool that is bigger than any of the other lotteries, I mentioned above. Of course, the jackpot is so large because it is multi-jurisdictional. It is not something that you can only play from Vermont or from the tri-state area.
The number one jackpot is $164 million with odds of 1:302,575,350. The chances that you might when something like this are very low. The matter how many tickets you have, it is not going to change the outcome or the odds. But, it is still a nice idea that you could win such a huge amount of cash.
The second place is $1.6 million with much lower odds than the number one jackpot, but the chances of winning this are still quite low. There is also a prize of $15,000, $500, $200 and they go down all the way to $2.
The number drawing is on Tuesdays and Fridays at 11 PM, so make sure you do not miss those.
From what I can see, people in Vermont have a lot of different choices when it comes to playing the lottery. The jackpots are ranging anywhere between $100,000 and hundreds of millions of dollars. These are interesting offers even though the odds are not in your favor.
