There are 43 states that have their own lottery systems in place and there are millions of people who join in every day to try and get themselves a piece of the pie. Some of the lottery jackpots can become incredibly huge and can make for a pretty fun party if you want to do something different party wise. If there happens to be a super huge jackpot being given away by your state you might want to throw a fun lottery based lotto party in the hopes that one of your guests might be a lucky winner. Even if there is no big winner, you can still play some lotto games and some casino games during the night for entertainment only and maybe some non-cash prizes.
You will of course need to hold the party on one of the nights that your state holds their drawings for the huge jackpot. Before the party you should go out and buy enough tickets so that each of your party guests is given their own ticket.
You can also make some of your own party lotto tickets and then have copies of each one, hand out the party lotto tickets to your guests along with the real ones and then put the duplicates in a box that you've decorated in gold glitter.
You can decorate your tables with some green velvet tablecloths or just green tablecloths of some sort and then put gold votive candles on them and then surround them with chocolate coins wrapped in gold foil, put some dice and cards on the tables as well to serve as your centerpieces. You can also fill party bags with some spare change, a couple of real scratch off tickets, an extra lotto ticket for the drawing, some plastic gambling chips if you want as well for a little added decoration and fun and then have a ticket taped to the bottom of one of the chairs at each table and then during the evening when someone sits in the chair, randomly pick one of the chairs with a ticket and the person sitting at the table will get the party bag. Don't forget to have one chair at just one table with a special green ticket for the grand prize drawing at the end of the night.
As the hostess you could dress up like Lady Luck in a long green dress or skirt and wear gold costume jewelry and if you have a host have him dress up with green bow tie and a suit. Have him wear a hat that has a green or gold scarf around it and have fake $100 dollar bills tucked into the scarf.
Make a bunch of lucky boas or leis by stringing together a bunch of crumpled up fake dollar bills and give one to each guest as they enter the party. Ways of entertaining your guests would be to have some casino card games as well as dice games set up to play with fake money. Have them hold onto their fake money till the end of the party.
Make sure that you serve some fancy but not messy finger foods during the party. You don't need to have a full on meal for this. You also can include some champagne as well as sparkling cider as beverages for the guests.
When it comes time for the state lottery drawing make sure to turn the television on so everyone can see if they might be a lucky winner. Once the drawing is over you can distribute any prizes your guests have won fake money and then draw for that one special green ticket under the chair. The person sitting on that chair with the green ticket will go home with whatever you chose to be the grand prize.
