KY and two other states formed Lotto South in 2001, seven months before MUSL started Hot Lotto. KY is the only MUSL member offering Lotto South.
Neither game has expanded yet; however, North Dakota's yet-to-begin lottery is planning to sell Hot Lotto, as well as PB. (ND's lottery will be allowed to sell only multi-state games.)
With Hot Lotto growing beyond its six-state base, it raises an interesting situation for KY: should the Bluegrass State stay with Lotto South, or become a "true" MUSL state by jumping to Hot Lotto, weakening Lotto South which, unlike MUSL, is not truly "organized" (same as Mega Millions).
