How to Play
Get a HOT LOTTO play slip from any Minnesota State Lottery retailer and follow the directions on the back. Pick five numbers from 1 to 47. Then select one more number from 1 to 19 (the Hot Ball). Or simply ask the clerk for a HOT LOTTO QUICK PICK and random numbers will be picked for you.
You can purchase up to 14 draws in advance. Remember, each play costs $1.
With the Sizzler® option, you could triple your winnings (on any non-jackpot Hot Lotto prize) for an additional $1 per play. You could win up to a $90,000 prize with Sizzler without even hitting the jackpot.
