The Michigan Lottery's Lotto 47 jackpot hasn't been won in more than five months and has reached an extraordinary $11.7 million for the drawing on Saturday.

The last time a player in Michigan won the jackpot was in February when a $2.5 million jackpot winner was bought at the Uptown Bar, located at 8 West Front Street in Monroe.

The Lotto 47 jackpot hasn't been this large since Feb. 18, 2017, when a $22.55 million was won after more than 7 months of rollovers.  The current $11.35 million jackpot has not been won in more than 5 months.

To play the Lotto 47 game, players must pick six numbers between 1 and 47. If you match all six numbers, you win the jackpot. For an additional $1 per play, players can pick the Double Play option, giving players a second chance to win up to $1.5 million in the nightly Double Play drawing. For an additional $1 per game, players may add EZMatch to their ticket for a chance to win up to $500 instantly.

Lotto 47 drawings take place Wednesdays and Saturdays at 7:29 p.m. Tickets may be purchased until 7:08 p.m. the night of the drawing.

The results of Lotto 47 drawings, as well as that off all other Michigan Lottery draw games, are published at Lottery Post's Michigan Lottery Results page shortly after each drawing takes place.

Michigan residents can also buy Lotto 47 tickets online. Anyone who plays online gets instant notification if they won right after the drawing.

Playing online is a way to avoid diving into a dumpster to retrieve a winning ticket you accidentally threw away.
