NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Lottery is adding a sixth drawing-style game to its lineup and this one pays the withholding taxes.
Hot Lotto is a multi-state drawing-style game similar to Powerball and Mega Millions. The all-cash jackpots begin at $1 million and average between $5 million and $6 million.
Hot Lotto begins in Tennessee on Sunday with tickets costing $1 each. A "Sizzler" option that triples all non-jackpot prizes costs an extra $1.
Drawings will be held every Wednesday and Saturday at 9:40 p.m. Central with the first drawing on May 15.
Unlike other Tennessee Lottery games, the withholding taxes on a Hot Lotto jackpot are paid by the Lottery.
