Instead of the word lottery, often the word lotto is used to describe the same game.
HOW TO PLAY THE MANHATTAN LOTTO
Pick six numbers between 1 and 59 (or let the QuickPick machine select the numbers for you). The minimum play is $1 for two game panels. Or you can play up to $5 on the 10-playcard. Then watch the live TV drawings on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 11:21 p.m. on WABC Channel 7.
Lotto Jackpot: For each LOTTO drawing, 40% of the sales for the draw (minus 2% taken out for a reserve fund) is allocated as prize money. The largest Lotto jackpot paid since 1991 was $58 million.

Irish woman in $135 million lotto win
People often talk about “the luck of the Irish”, which means people from Ireland are a little luckier than ordinary people. This proved true on July 30, when Dolores McNamara, from Limerick, won a record $135 million on the European Lottery. Ms. McNamara is still speechless and recovering from the shock of her sudden jackpot win. The lottery had not been won since May and had been rolled over nine times. Hopeful ticket holders around Europe had waited anxiously every Friday to see if their luck might change.
Ms. McNamara had been enjoying a quiet drink in a bar when she checked her ticket. She had told her friend: “There’s little point in checking the ticket. I can’t even win an argument”. However, Lady Luck smiled on her seconds later. She went straight to the police, worried that she might lose the winning lottery ticket. A policeman phoned her bank manager, who put the ticket in a bank safe until the banks opened. Unfortunately, Monday is a national holiday in Ireland. Dolores must wait until Tuesday before she can get her hands on her millions.
