HOT LOTTO® tickets cost $1 per game.
It’s easy to play Hot Lotto®:
Use a playslip to select five white numbers from 1 to 47 and one orange HOT BALL number from 1 to 19. Or ask for a Quick Pick and let the computer randomly select your numbers. You may play up to 10 advance drawings. Check your tickets carefully. HOT LOTTO® tickets cannot be canceled.
...And with SIZZLER®:
Just pay an additional $1 for each HOT LOTTO® game you wish to play, and if you win a set cash prize, you’re guaranteed to triple that amount! To add Sizzler®, simply mark the SIZZLER® option on your playslip or ask your Retailer to add it to your HOT LOTTO® play. Drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday. Play up to 9:45 p.m. on drawing days. Check out what you could win.
How to play using a Playslip:
- Each playslip has 5 game panels labeled $1, $2, $3, $4 and $5. Each panel has two selection grids. The upper grid contains numbers 1 to 47, and the lower grid contains numbers 1 to 19.
- For each game you wish to play, select five numbers in the upper grid and one number in the lower grid. The cost for each panel is $1, and you may play $1, $2, $3, $4 or $5.
- If you prefer having ALL or SOME of your number selections made by the terminal, mark Quick Pick in the appropriate panel, or ask your Retailer for a Quick Pick.
- Use only blue or black ink or pencil to mark your slip. Sorry, red ink will not work. Mark each number like this:
- If you make an error in your number selection, mark the void box. DO NOT ERASE.
- Check your playslip carefully for accuracy and give the completed slip to any Lottery Retailer, who will then process your ticket. HOT LOTTO® tickets cannot be canceled.
- If you wish to play the same numbers for more than one drawing, tell your Lottery Retailer before your ticket is processed. Advance purchase of HOT LOTTO® tickets are available for up to the next 10 drawings.
