I love to play Hot Lotto. Although the jackpots don't get as large as the big games, I enjoy playing it. I have done somewhat well with picking on that game, but no jackpot for me yet. In my observation, the jackpot seems hard to hit, but that's just my opinion. There were only 6 winners last year, and 3 of those were in November and December.
It has a decent matrix, with 39 regular numbers and 19 hot balls. I too, am disappointed that MUSL can show the consolidated results for PB, but not HL. You'd think they would. I always have to click each state to assess where the winners are, and it's time consuming.
With all of the cross-selling, I'm not sure if many states are going to want to look at adding another game right now. It's kind of nice, having a smaller amount of states selling this one, at least it makes you "feel" like you have a decent chance, and don't have as much competition. The jackpot doesn't get huge, but that's ok, it would still be enough for me, and I'd love to win it.
As far as recognition, I think there are several jackpots, that might hover around the amount of HL, and they don't get the recognition as PB or MM, either. They are the largest though, so that's probably just how it will be. As far as getting some kind of more "in-depth" stats for it on THIS site, I'm sure you'd have to speak to Todd about that.
