"Unique game" with a top prize of $1 million. Hot Lotto starts at $1 million. HL will be expanding again in November. Will South Carolina be the next Hot Lotto state?

    Let's hope not. I haven't seen anything good about this game. At least not that I've seen. Since it's part of PB, it would make sense that NC and SC will join in.

      The only thing negative about HL is that it's computerized (actually, it uses radioactive material-I don't see how that can be manipulated.) I realize that some people are as against computerized drawings as I am against annuity-only games.

      HL, computerized or not, is a much better game than GA-KY-VA Lose for Life. South Carolina was interested in Lotto South-LS would still be here, as at least a four-state game, if SC had joined.

      If NC and SC were to join HL, they would do so, separately.

        I see what you mean. There was talk of NC/SC making their own Carolinas Pick-6 game together as modeled after the HL as well.

          The Carolinas probably don't have the population base right now to make a bi-state jackpot game work. It would be better if NC and SC joined a longer odds (currently 1:11 million) Hot Lotto.

            I hope NC and SC join Hot Lotto with a matrix change.

              I can't forsee a matrix change, but I do see them doing as CASH pointed out and joining HL.

                1. Hot Lotto is hardly "unique".

                2. The game SC is citing has a top prize of $1,000,000. Hot Lotto is a rolling jackpot game, which means it has no technical top prize.

                  Yeah, I don't know what the Carolinas will do.
