I think the $20 is reasonable for one ticket on one yearly drawng. I'm hoping for $500 (or more, of course, but $500 would make me happy.) One thing is a little wrong in the story, to say the barcode (or the serial number) is "randomly generated". Being there are a limited number tickets sold and all prizes awarded on one drawing, it would make more sense (and is probably the case) to issue them in serial order. That is, I buy one at a store in North Jersey, and a second later one is sold in South Jersey. The # there is one higher than mine because it was the next ticket (timewise) sold. So that means if you hear a winner was sold where you normally play, it only matters what TIME it was sold, so calling them a "Lucky Location" would be erroneous and you won't know if you were "close" to buying a winner other than if the serial # is very close to yours.

PS- what is this about Hot Lotto going computerized?????? If Powerball or Mega did the same thing it would be a huge mistake!
