  • Select five numbers from 1 through 47 on the top panel of the play slip. Select one number from 1 through 19 - the HOT BALL - on the bottom panel.
  • Mark QUICK PICK if you want the computer to randomly pick some or all of the numbers for you. ( Save Time: If you want only QUICK PICK numbers, simply tell the clerk. You won't have to complete a play slip.) Mark QUICK PICK if you want the computer to randomly pick some or all of the numbers for you. ( Save Time: If you want only QUICK PICK numbers, simply tell the clerk. You won't have to complete a play slip.)
  • If you want to play HOT LOTTO SIZZLER for an additional $1 per play, you must select it on the HOT LOTTO SIZZLER section of your play slip or tell the clerk before you buy your HOT LOTTO ticket. If you're purchasing more than one HOT LOTTO play and select the HOT LOTTO SIZZLER option, that option will apply to all of your plays.
Reading your ticket
  • Look for the dollar amount you're playing on the ticket across from the words HOT LOTTO.
  • Your numbers appear below the drawing date - the five white numbers printed in a row, followed by the specially labeled HOT BALL number.
Claiming your prize
  • Immediately sign the back of your ticket to establish ownership.
  • Collect prizes up to $599 at any Montana Lottery retailer.
  • Collect the jackpot, the $30,000 prize, or the $3,000 prize at Montana Lottery headquarters.
  • You may also collect any prize by mail.
  • Please note: All prizes must be claimed within six months of the drawing for which your play was eligible.
The fine print
  • The jackpot prize will be divided equally among multiple winning tickets.
  • The jackpot prize will be paid as a lump-sum cash payment equal to the advertised jackpot amount. No annuity option is available. Tax withholdings will be paid by the Montana Lottery based on the standard 25% federal and 6.9% state rates. Winners who do not furnish a Social Security number or are not citizens of the United States are subject to higher tax withholding rates and will receive less than the advertised jackpot amount.
  • The set prizes of $30,000 through $2 published here are based on the expected number of winners sharing the prize pool. In some cases, these prizes may be paid on a pari-mutuel basis and will be lower than the published prize levels. Refer to the official game rules for an explanation of the pari-mutuel prize payment process.
