FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BOISE, Idaho – Tonight is the first night players trying the new 2by2 Draw Game have a chance to win DOUBLE the top prize of $44,000. The Idaho Lottery introduced the new Draw Game, 2by2 on Sunday, April 18, 2021.
This new game allows players the opportunity to win $22,000 every day of the week, and up to $44,000 on Tuesdays.
“2by2 is a new game to Idaho that is played in several States across America’s heartland. This new game will have a true, Idaho feel to it,” said Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery Director. “We're looking forward to it being successful, not only for our players, but also for our beneficiaries - Idaho's public schools and buildings."
2by2 tickets cost $1 and gives players eight different ways to win. If a player chooses to buy a 7-day multi-draw ticket, on Tuesday every prize the player wins doubles, all the way up to the top prize of $44,000. In the game, players select two red ball numbers from 1 to 26, then two white ball numbers from 1 to 26. They win by matching a single number. If they match all four numbers, they win the jackpot prize!
In addition to 2by2, the Idaho Lottery has upgraded the game Weekly Grand from a twice-weekly draw game to a daily draw game. This $2 draw game allows players to win $1,000 a week, every week for 52 weeks with withholding taxes paid by the Lottery. Any non-winning tickets in Weekly Grand may be entered for a monthly second-chance draw to win $100 a week for 52 weeks with withholding taxes paid. Weekly Grand was first introduced in 2011 and has recorded 41 jackpot winners and 117 second-chance winners.
2by2 drawings occur every night of the week at 8:15 pm, Mountain Time. Weekly Grand winning numbers are drawn at 8:00 pm Mountain Time, seven days a week.
