LANSING, MI (WILX) - The Michigan Lottery's Lotto 47 jackpot for this Saturday stands at $10.2 million.

Lotto 47 jackpot players must match all six of the numbers drawn to win.

Players select six numbers from one to 47 for a chance to win a jackpot, which starts at one-million dollars.

If a player wins this weekend's Lotto 47 jackpot, it would mark the second time the game's prize has been won in 2019.

In February, a player won a $2.5 million Lotto 47 jackpot with a ticket bought at the Uptown Bar, located at 8 West Front Street in Monroe.

Lotto 47 tickets cost an individual one-dollar to play.

The current jackpot has grown from that original amount.

Michigan's Lotto 47 drawings take place on Wednesday and Saturday nights at 7:29 p.m.

Tickets may be purchased until 7:08 p.m. on the day of the drawing.

This lottery is returned to the state in the form of contributions to the state School Aid Fund, prizes to players and commissions to vendors and retailers.

In the 2018 fiscal year, the Michigan Lottery provided more than $941.3 million for Michigan's public schools, its fourth record contribution in a row.

Since it began in 1972, the Michigan Lottery has contributed more than $22 billion to support public education in Michigan.
