Ticket Sold in Kansas Captures $9.43 Million Hot Lotto Jackpot

The Kansas Lottery urges all players with Hot Lotto tickets from last night's drawing to check their tickets right away. A single ticket sold in Kansas matched all numbers in Hot Lotto to win a jackpot estimated at $9.43 million!  The ticket was sold in northeast Kansas

The winning numbers from the January 12 Hot Lotto drawing are: 13-15-21-34-35 Hot Ball 4.  The holder of the winning jackpot ticket should sign the back of the ticket immediately and put it in a safe place until the ticket is claimed.  The winner may want to consult with an attorney and/or financial adviser before claiming the ticket.

Among the decisions the winner will have to make is whether to take the $9.43 million jackpot prize as an annuity paid out over 24 years (25 payments) or as a cash lump sum. Should the jackpot winner choose the cash option, he or she would receive approximately $7.15 million, minus mandatory federal and state withholding taxes.

The northeast region of Kansas, where the ticket was sold, includes these 21 counties: Marshall, Nemaha, Brown, Doniphan, Riley, Pottawatomie, Jackson, Atchison, Geary, Wabaunsee, Shawnee, Jefferson, Leavenworth, Wyandotte, Johnson, Osage, Douglas, Franklin, Miami, Morris and the northern half of Lyon.

This is the fifth Hot Lotto jackpot hit in the Kansas since Kansas joined the game in 2006.

This is also the third time in less than a year that a Kansas ticket has won a multimillion dollar jackpot in a multistate game!  In March 2012, a Franklin County resident won $218.6 million playing Mega Millions; and in December 2012, a Johnson County resident claimed a $50 million Powerball jackpot.

Hot Lotto is played in 15 lottery jurisdictions - District of Columbia, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Vermont and West Virginia. The Hot Lotto jackpot returns to an estimated $1 million (annuity) for Wednesday's drawing.
