“On Friday, February 3rd, Lottery players who purchase five dollars or more of Hot Lotto on a single ticket will automatically receive a free $2 2by2 ticket,” said Lottery spokeswoman Sally Lunsford. “The Hot Lotto jackpot is $3.72 million for Saturday.”
The sale runs from 5 a.m. to just before 9 p.m. Friday night. Hot Lotto is unique in Kansas, because what you see is what you get.
“Jackpots are paid in one lump sum, with mandatory Federal and State income withholding taxes on the jackpot paid by the Lottery,” said Lunsford. “When you see $3.72 million for a jackpot, that’s the exact amount that you are going to receive if you match all numbers.”
Seven Hot Lotto jackpots have been won since 2007. The Kansas Lottery also is giving players more chances to win with their new PlayOn app for your smartphone or tablet.
“We’ve never had one of those before,” said Lunsford. “You can scan your tickets to submit them for the drawings right on your app and keep track of everything. It’s a great new addition to the Kansas Lottery.”
You can find the app on Google Play or the ITunes App Store.
