Hi, Greg. Great question, and no, you do not have to wait. When you cash in the ticket to receive your prize, you will also receive a replacement ticket showing your plays for the remaining draws involved. Be sure that you receive that ticket, though!

If I have a multi-draw ticket that is a winner on one of the first draws do I need to wait until all draws are completed to cash that winner?

Hi, Greg. Here are the amounts in the other progressive InstaPlay games that are dedicated to the jackpot from each ticket purchased. In the $10 Jackpot Party Progressive game: $1; in the $5 Jumbo Bucks Progressive game: 35 cents; in the $2 Cherry Twist Progressive game: 15 cents; and in the $1 Loose Change Progressive game: 8 cents.

Those amounts are programmed into the prize structure of the game itself, and the lottery does not manually adjust the prize structure once it is executed, so it remains unchanged.

What is the amount of increase per ticket for the other instaplay games?
i did not find that info in the rules.
Can the amount per ticket be changed at whose discretion?
