"The Hot Lotto ND – Twice a week from the MUSL & the North Dakota Lottery"
North Dakota Hot Lotto
The North Dakota Lottery is 1 of 15 US District & State Lotteries that offer the multi state lottery – Hot Lotto – in this case the Hot Lotto ND – as part of the overall North Dakota State Lottery portfolio of games.
Hot Lotto is a multi-state USA Lottery that is run and operated by the MUSL –Multi State Lottery Association (MUSL) – who administer and syndicate the game across the United States of America. It is one of the largest US Lotteries – having produced a largest jackpot to date of a whopping US$ 19.97 Million.
The very first Hot Lotto draw took place on April 10th 2002 with 6 USA Lottery companies taking part who were all members of the Multi State Lottery Association.
Hot Lotto was introduced by the Multi State Lottery Association as part of its celebration of the 10th anniversary of its massive Powerball game and was aimed at giving some of the smaller US Lottery companies the chance of creating larger jackpots similar to those found in the larger State Lotteries.
Draws for the Hot Lotto are made from the offices of the Multi State Lottery Association (MUSL) in Urbandale, West Des Moines, Iowa.
The North Dakota Hot Lotto was first sold on June 24th 2004 – the North Dakota Lottery becoming the 8th member of the MUSL to offer its players the Hot Lotto game.
Hot Lotto ND – How It Works…
The North Dakota Hot Lotto works in exactly the same way as the Hot Lotto game works in all the States and Districts in the USA that offer the game.
Jackpots start off at US$ 1 Million and ROLLOVER after each draw the top prize is not won – increasing in size by a minimum of US$ 50,000 each time –making for some quite large jackpots to be won.
6 numbers are drawn in total for the Hot Lotto ND by a random number generator – firstly 5 numbers from 39 are drawn and then from a second set of numbers – 1 number (the HOT ball) from 19 is drawn.
Draws for the Hot Lotto ND take place twice every week on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 8.59pm CST (9.59pm EST).
In addition to the 6 main Hot Lotto numbers drawn – players have the option of activating a Hot Lotto prize multipier – the Hot Lotto SIZZLER which was introduced by the MUSL on January 3rd 2008…
This separate SIZZLER option is there to give players of the ND Hot Lotto the chance to increase their winnings on all levels of the prize structure apart from the Hot Lotto jackpot itself.

If a player matches the 5 main Hot Lotto numbers playing with the SIZZLER add-on – their second tier prize of US$ 10,000 would automatically be tripled and they would win US$ 30,000.
