Hot Lotto – Are They Stopping the Lotto Game?

Hot Lotto – Are They Stopping the Lotto Game?

Neubauer anticipates a new lotto game will replace Hot Lotto soon. “All games have their own shelf-lives, and Hot Lotto has reached itss.” She promised an announcement regarding plans for its successor shortly.

Hot Lotto was initially successful and profitable during its first decade; however, sales began to decrease and profitability eventually evaporated. Therefore, Mary Neubauer of the Iowa Lottery made the decision this fall to end it due to an evaluation of its performance, according to Neubauer’s spokespersonship for Iowa Lottery.

If you’ve been playing the lotto for some time, chances are that you have heard of Hot and Cold numbers. These numbers tend to be much more popular among lotterie players, leading them to believe they possess special powers that will help them win big – however this is just an urban legend and picking Hot or Cold numbers won’t ever increase your odds of success!

Hot Lotto held its last drawing on October 28, 2017 before being replaced by Lotto America in November of that year. The multi-state lottery game first went on sale April 10, 2002 with smaller state lotteries offering middle-sized jackpot prizes similar to Powerball or Mega Millions; its jackpot would grow with each draw if no winner could be found and had a minimum guaranteed jackpot of $1 Million.

Eddie Tipton of Iowa was found guilty in 2017 for using computer code to manipulate Hot Lotto games and win more than $20 Million across five Hot Lotto states from 2005-2011, according to investigators. Eddie was sentenced to 25 years for his crime by Iowa’s state Supreme Court.

Hot Lotto was unique among lottery games in that it offered not only a guaranteed minimum jackpot but also the Sizzler option whereby players paid an additional dollar to increase the chances of claiming any non-jackpot prize they might win threefold. Furthermore, Hot Lotto was one of only few that offered pay outs on a pari-mutuel basis instead of as estimated lump sum payouts to its winners.
