Lotto is a game where players select a group of numbers from a large set and are awarded prizes based on how many match a second set chosen by a random drawing.
In a typical lotto game, a player might be asked to select six numbers from a set of 49. At a predetermined time six numbers are randomly selected by the lottery. The player wins a major prize if all six of their numbers match those chosen in the random drawing. The player wins smaller prizes for matching three, four, or five of the drawn numbers.
Examples of lotto games include Powerball and The Big Game, each played in a number of U.S. jurisdictions, and Canada's Lotto 6/49.
Some form of lotto is played in every North American lottery jurisdiction.
