Idaho just got Hot Lotto.  Jackpot is a little over 4 million.  I'm trying to decide whether to play.  It draws the same nights as Powerball and WildCard.  It's RNG but a previous thread (which is locked so I couldn't just reply to that one) mentioned its RNG is radioactive decay or something like that.  The odds are better than Powerball.

So, make up my mind for me.  Should I spend another $2 per week on Hot Lotto?  Should I wait till the jackpot is higher?  Or should I just forget about it and concentrate my efforts and my money on Powerball?

      I think most LP members will remember their fellow LP members when they win.  They may not share their winnings but they will be more than happy to share their joy.

          Yes, I will definitely share my joy if I win.  Thumbs Up

          I found out a little more about Hot Lotto.  It's only played in 11 states.  It's annuitized, so you only get approx. 50% if you opt for cash.   The jackpot is at 4.33 million now, it went up about .2 million for this draw.

          I'm thinking I should play when the jackpot is a bit higher, but only play quick picks so I won't feel like I have to keep playing "my" numbers.  Maybe play when the JP is 6.5 million or higher, so the payout after taxes is at least 2 million.
