Ticket Sold in Kansas Captures $9.43 Million Hot Lotto
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.

jackpot hit in the Kansas since Kansas joined the game in
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;

million Powerball jackpot.
