Hot Lotto is a hot and exciting multi-state game played in: Montana, New Mexico, Kansas, Oklahoma, South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, West Virginia, DC, Delaware, New Hampshire, and Idaho.

Playing Hot Lotto

Playing Hot Lotto is easy and fun! To play, you simply choose five numbers from 1 to 39 and one “hot ball” number from 1 to 19. You can choose your numbers however you like. Some people choose numbers based on important dates in their lives, some choose numbers that come to them in a dream, and others use formulas to arrive at their numbers.

If you don’t want to choose your own numbers, you can let the computer randomly choose your numbers for you. Hot Lotto drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday night. If you match all 5 of your numbers plus the Hot Ball numbers, you win the jackpot! If you do win the jackpot, you can choose to receive the money in 25 payments or as one lump sum. There are 8 other way to win a cash prize. You can even win a cash prize for just matching the Hot Ball number.

The Sizzler Option

For only $1 more you can choose to use the Sizzler option. The Sizzler option adds a whole new element to the game. If you win any cash prize besides the jackpot, and you are playing the sizzler option, your prize amount will triple! Playing the Hot Lotto Sizzler, in my opinion, is the way to go!
