Lloyd LaCroix of Rapid City on February 24, 2014 claimed his $9,000 Hot Lotto prize from the February 19, 2014 drawing. LaCroix matched four of five white ball numbers and the Hot Ball to win the game's $3,000 third prize but because he purchased the Sizzler option for an additional one dollar, his prize was tripled to $9,000.
The winning ticket was purchased at Don's Valley Express on Haines in Rapid City. The store will receive a $900 bonus for the sale. LaCroix's ticket was one of two worth $9,000 from the February 19, 2014 drawing; the other ticket was sold at HyVee on 9th Avenue in Watertown.
Hot Lotto is played in Delaware, the District of Columbia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont and West Virginia. The jackpot currently sits at $3,81 million for the next drawing on Wednesday, February 26, 2014.
