Hi, I’m Jude and I want to tell you about Lucky Links with 2x Power, the Connecticut lottery’s new draw game. It has a top prize of $50,000 and you can win it twice a day. Drawings are day and night. Lucky Links is an engaging and fun game to play.

The object is to make lines by matching the numbers that appear on your ticket’s grid to the winning numbers drawn by the lottery. The more lines you make, the more prize money you win. It’s fun and easy to play, so come on. – Hi, can I help you? – Yes, a Lucky Links day quick pick ticket with two times power please. Tickets are quick pick only, which means the lottery machine randomly prints eight numbers on my ticket from a pool of 22 numbers.

Quick pick is fast and easy. Every ticket prints a nine circle grid. There’s no play slip required, there’s nothing to fill in.

And by adding the two times power feature, some of the prizes that I can win will be bigger, two times bigger. Pretty cool. – That’s $3 please, $2 for Lucky Links day and $1 for the added two times power. Thanks.

And good luck. – Thank you. So this is what my ticket looks like. There’s a different number in each of the spots on my game grid. Check out the dollar sign in the center, it’s a free spot. After the lottery holds the Lucky Links day drawing, I’ll grab a pen and check the numbers on my grid to see if any of them match the winning numbers drawn.

I’ll make a line if I link three numbers or two numbers plus the dollar sign in a straight, horizontal, vertical or diagonal pattern. If I make two or more lines, I win. If I make three, four, five or six lines my prize doubles because I added two times power to my ticket. – And if you make seven or eight lines in your ticket, you win the game’s top prize of $50,000.

Drawings are held daily at midday and in the evening. – Well the day drawing has just happened, let’s check my numbers with the winning numbers to see if I won. (upbeat music) Awesome, I checked my numbers with the winning numbers and I made three lines. I have one of each kind of straight line, a horizontal, a vertical and a diagonal. That’s a $10 prize. (cash register ding) – [machine] Congratulations!

– [Cashier] Because you added two times power when you bought your ticket, your prize doubled to $20, nice! – Great, I’ll have a Lucky Links night ticket for this evening’s drawing as well. And remember to add two times power please. (upbeat music) After you play, it’s easy to see if you’re a winner by using the ticket checker at every lottery location. You can also check winning numbers on your mobile phone, on the lottery’s Facebook and website, or the lottery can text them to you. And now they’re available on the lottery’s new mobile app.
