6:45am — New Mexico Has `Hot Lotto’ Winner

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Ticket sold in state will split $1.9 million jackpot with winner in Minnesota.

8/9/07 UPDATE: Edward Boyd, 51, of Farmington told New Mexico Lottery officials this week that he didn’t check his $5 ticket until Tuesday, three days after the Hot Lotto winning numbers were announced — making Boyd a near-millionaire after sharing a $2 million jackpot with a still-unidentified winner in Minnesota, the Farmington Daily Times reported.

A twice-a-week lottery player for years, Boyd recovered the ticket from a trash bag where he had tossed it while cleaning out his pickup truck for sale, the Daily Times reported.

“Hot Lotto,” a relatively new game known as the “Little Powerball” for its smaller jackpots and relatively better odds (1 in 11 million as opposed to Powerball’s 1 in 146 million odds), has a winning ticket in New Mexico, according to the New Mexico Lottery and KRQE News 13.

The winner in Saturday’s drawing will share a nearly $1.9 million jackpot with whoever bought a winning ticket in Minnesota, according to KRQE.

The winning numbers were 3, 11, 18, 34, 38 and the red Hot Lotto number was 3, according to the New Mexico Lottery’s Web site.

The game debuted in New Mexico last November and also is played in the District of Columbia, Iowa, Kansas, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota, West Virginia and, of course, in Minnesota, the lottery authority said.

Hot Lotto jackpots begin at $1 million and increase by a minimum of $50,000 per drawing until someone wins, according to the Web site.

Lottery officials urge whoever bought the winning ticket to sign the ticket immediately and consult with an attorney or financial adviser before coming forward, according to News 13.
