I won $200 as an At-Home player September 1, 2001.

Maybe Hot Lotto will pick up now.

    CASH Only -

    When's the last episode?  I figured you were talking about the Instant Millionaire show that's broadcast from Vegas, but I couldn't find any press releases or any news about it going off the air.  I know DC is dropping out of it, but I figured it was their decision instead of the show going off the air.

      Late September.

      DC is pulling out in anticipation of Hot Lotto.

        Found a news press release at the KS Lottery site that talks about the last show.  KS is having it's final drawing for contestants next week and I saw some other states are having their final drawing in May.  I guess in June then they'll tape all of the remaining episodes.  The last paragraph on the press release was kind of interesting:


        "Watch for an announcement coming soon about the world's first Internet interactive game, eScratch. Tickets will be available at all Kansas Lottery retailers."

        I haven't seen anymore about it on the KS lottery site - I wonder if maybe it's a multi-state thing run by the Powerball people since it was on the end of the press release.

          Here's an update on the escratch game.  Neither the game or web site mentioned are active yet, but the news release explains how it'll work:

          Anyone know if any other states have similar Internet games?

            Yeah, we got the same news here in Pa.  Too bad, it was one of my favorite scratch games, even though I didn't stay up to watch the showand haven't won any bonus prize as an on-air or at home contestant.  Just prizes off the ticket.  (It comes on late at night out here).  Last episode is sometime in September, roughly 6 shows are taped at a time.  Our game expires the end of this  month, but tickets are hard to find.
