Montana 10 Spot Lottery Game Odds, Prize Payouts, and Important Information
Montana Lottery has a lottery game called 10 Spot. It plays almost like the Keno game, but with a different name. Have you ever played the game? If so, this article provides some information about it that you should know, along with odds of winning and prize payouts.
First off, to play 10 Spot, you must choose ten numbers out of a possible 80. Then, Montana Lottery will draw 20 numbers at random. To win the jackpot you must match all of your ten chosen numbers to the numbers drawn. The game costs $1 to play and draws twice a day, every day, at 12:30 pm and at 7 pm.
The jackpot is $25,000 and the odds of winning the jackpot are 1-in-8,911,711. Now, if you play this game, here is some information that you really need to know. The jackpot, considering the odds, is low – Way too low. Consider this: A big percentage of North American Lotteries offer the Keno game. The odds of winning the jackpot are exactly the same as in the 10 Spot game, but the prizes are much much bigger. For example, the Daily Keno lotto game in Ontario, Canada offers a jackpot of $250,000 at the same odds and the Daily Keno game from Washington offers a jackpot of $100,000 at the same odds. Something’s amiss here and, if you play the game, you don’t have the potential to win as much as you should be entitled to.
Aside from the $25,000 jackpot for matching ten numbers, the 10 Spot game offers other prizes as well, according to the following table:
- Matching 9 numbers wins you $2500.
- Matching 8 numbers wins you $225.
- Matching 7 numbers wins you $50.
- Matching 6 numbers wins you $14.
- Matching 5 numbers wins you $4.
- Matching 0 numbers wins you $2.
The overall odds of winning any prize in the game are 1-in-16.9. The odds of winning prizes are fairly decent. However, it seems like Montana Lottery is short-changing grand-prize winners. That’s important information because, after all, most lotto players play to win the big prize. Would you still play 10 Spot knowing that the jackpot should be bigger than it actually is?
