New Mexico Lottery Sells Tickets for $1.54 Million Hot Lotto® Jackpot, $1 Million Powerball® Prize

04/16/2012

ALBUQUERQUE – New Mexico Lottery players are holding a Hot Lotto ticket worth a $1.54 million jackpot and a Powerball ticket worth $1 million, both from Saturday’s drawing

The Hot Lotto ticket matched the winning numbers of 7, 16, 18, 32, 35 and a Hot Ball of 8. The prize carries a pre-tax estimated annuitized jackpot of $1.54 million and a pre-tax cash value of approximately $1.15 million. The winner can elect to take the cash or annuity option at the time the jackpot is claimed.

The Powerball ticket matched the white ball numbers of 14, 15, 16, 19 and 24. The ticket missed landing the night’s jackpot of $111.4 million by not having the red Powerball of 2.

This is New Mexico’s third $1 million Powerball prize since the game’s new format started in January. Previously, the prize for matching five white balls was $200,000.

The lottery recommends that the players:

  • Sign the winning tickets immediately since they are bearer instruments.
  • Meet with an attorney and/or financial advisor before coming to lottery headquarters to claim their prizes.
  • Call lottery security to provide basic identifying information about the tickets and their purchase, and make an appointment to claim the prizes at lottery headquarters in Albuquerque.

The sale of New Mexico Lottery games funds a college tuition assistance program. Since 1996, the New Mexico Lottery has raised more than $514 million for public education and more than 75,300 students have attended college on Legislative Lottery Scholarships.
