Grand Prize

All prizes shall be determined in accordance with the MUSL Hot Lotto Group Rules ("Rules"). A grand prize shall be paid as a single, cash payment on a pari-mutuel basis. The prize money allocated to the Grand Prize shall be divided equally by the number of tickets winning the grand prize.

The winner of an "Advertised Grand Prize" ("Grand Prize Winner") shall receive a "Withholdings Taxes Paid Prize" as defined in the Rules, subject to any set-off requirements. The Lottery will pay the Grand Prize Winner a net prize amount, which is the residual amount after the Lottery reduces the "Gross Prize Value" for federal and New Mexico withholding taxes applicable to resident U.S. citizens with a valid Social Security number. The Lottery is not responsible for any individual winner's taxes. Non-residents of the U.S. may not receive the full amount of the "Advertised Grand Prize" due to different withholding requirements.

Please Note

  • Grand Prize is estimated and will be divided equally among all winning tickets.
  • Some or all of the prizes may become pari-mutuel under certain circumstances as defined in the Hot Lotto Group Rules.
