Saturday's jackpot $1.3 million ($700,000 cash.) Game played in IA, MN, MT, NH, SD, and WV. Higher jackpot potential than Tri-State Megabucks. CASH OPTION available (unlike the 6/42 and 6/49 Massachusetts games).
I bought up a few quick picks for the Hot Lotto drawing Saturday night.. I agree that it's a better option to MA's Megabucks or MA Millions. Sometimes it's good to live near the NH border (well that, and the no sales tax thing :) ).
Hopefully now that the Big Game jackpot was hit, players living in or near the states selling "Hot Lotto" will be able to look into this game. BTW, I don't have a problem with "Tri-State Megabucks"-it's extremely unfortunate, though, that Vermont has never approved joining MUSL or the Big Game Group. Maine WAS part of MUSL...but dropped out in 1992 when "Lotto*America" became Powerball. So, in effect, the "#1" game in ME and VT is the "#3" game in NH in terms of jackpot potential!
