About 2by2

As part of the Multi-State Lottery Association, 2by2 is a regional draw lottery game played in Kansas, Nebraska and North Dakota. While it doesn’t offer the mind-blowing jackpots associated with Powerball and Mega Millions, 2by2 has good odds, neat prizes and daily drawings. If you’re looking for a bit of lottery fun while you wait for bigger drawings to take place, then this is the game for you. 2by2 is currently avaliable in the following states:

History of 2by2

Kansas and Nebraska first offered 2by2 to players in 2002, and North Dakota began selling tickets for the game in 2006. Separate versions of the game existed in Arizona, Iowa and Minnesota but have since been discontinued.

How to Play 2by2

All you need to do is pay $1 per line and select two red numbers between 1 and 26 and two white numbers between 1 and 26. It’s that simple! You can also buy a multi-draw ticket that enters you into seven consecutive drawings, with an added bonus of qualifying for the 2by2 Tuesday option, where all prizes won on that day are doubled in value.

If you’re itching for a lottery game that gives you great odds, then you’ll want to check out 2by2. Here’s a breakdown of prizes and the odds of winning:

Claiming a Prize

Apart from the top $22,000 prize, most 2by2 prizes can be claimed at any Kansas, Nebraska or North Dakota Lottery retailer. You’ll need to contact lottery officials in your state to complete the claims process if you win the top prize.

No matter what 2by2 prize you win, you’ll only have a certain amount of time to claim it. In Nebraska and North Dakota you’ll have 180 days after the date of the drawing, while Kansas gives winners 365 days to come forward.

Rules

If you want to play 2by2 and redeem any prizes you might win, you’ll need to be at least 18 years old in Kansas and North Dakota and 19 years old in Nebraska.

If there are more than ten grand prize winners in a single 2by2 drawing, then the prizes will be allocated to winners on a pari-mutuel basis, meaning that the cash value of the top prize could change.

If someone contacts you out of the blue about winning a 2by2 prize and asks for your personal details, don’t fall for it – it’s likely that you’re being set up for a lottery scam. Visit the scams page for more information about how to avoid becoming a target for fraud.
