Hot Lotto jackpots start at $1 million and grow until someone wins. Tickets cost $1 per play for each drawing. For an additional $1 per play, you can triple your non-jackpot prizes with SIZZLER! Drawings are held each Wednesday and Saturday night.

There are nine ways to win. And if you win the jackpot, you'll receive your prize in a single lump sum cash payment with all initial withholding taxes paid!

How to Play

  • Use a play slip to pick five numbers from 1 to 47 and your Hot Ball - a number from 1 to 19; or
  • Ask your retailer for a Hot Lotto quick pick.
  • You can buy tickets up to 9:00 p.m. (CT) / 8:00 p.m. (MT) on the nights of the drawings.

Triple Your Prizes with SIZZLER!

For an additional $1 per play at the time of purchase, you can triple your prizes, except the jackpot, with SIZZLER!

To play Sizzler, ask your retailer for a Hot Lotto Sizzler ticket, or mark the Sizzler box at the top of the playslip.

Sizzler costs an additional $1 per Hot Lotto play. If you buy a $1 Hot Lotto ticket and add the $1 Sizzler option, your cost is $2.
