Rodney Young / $9.01 Million

Rodney Young is the Lotto America jackpot winner from the April 1, 2020 drawing. The winning ticket was sold at Blue Wing Market, 5716 McMinnville Hwy. in Woodbury, TN.

Jeffrey Love / $21.6 Million

ROSEVILLE, Minn. (July 12, 2019) – A Lotto America ® ticket worth $21.6 million was in the glove box of an Elk River resident’s car until this morning. Jeffery Love was on his way to work when he found out that he is a multimillionaire. He initially called into work and told them he would “be a little late.” It wasn’t long before he called back and let them know that he wouldn’t be in at all today.

Chuck Anderson / $4.38 Million

CLIVE, Iowa (May 10, 2018) – A Davenport man on Thursday claimed a $4.38 million lottery jackpot, acknowledging that he had beaten long odds to win a jackpot with a ticket he received as a free play in a lottery promotion.

But Chuck Anderson emphasized that he wasn’t getting ahead of himself.

Kujava Family / $22.8 Million

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – A brother and sister from Badger, Minn. have a long-standing agreement that if “one wins, we both win”—and a Lotto America jackpot worth $22.8 million was no exception.

Debbie Kujava purchased the $22.8 million winning ticket for the March 14 drawing at Holiday Stationstores, located at 503-3rd St. N.E., in Roseau on her way home from work on March 12.

David Kokenge / $20,000

CLIVE, Iowa – A Council Bluffs man couldn’t believe his eyes when the self-checker machine read $20,000 after scanning his Lotto America ticket.

“So I ran it through probably half a dozen times,” laughed Kokenge. “It might have been more than half a dozen.”

David Kokenge, who is 66 and recently retired, was just one number away from winning a big Lotto America jackpot in the Feb. 14 drawing. He matched the first five numbers, but missed the Star Ball℠ to win a $20,000 prize.

Brian Spicer / $20,000

CLIVE, Iowa – A Des Moines man was just one number away from winning a big Lotto America jackpot and ended up winning a $20,000 prize.

Brian Spicer matched the first five numbers, but missed the Star Ball in the January 6 drawing to win a $20,000 prize.

The winning numbers in that night’s $17.71 million jackpot drawing were: 9-13-26-38-48 and Star Ball 7. The All Star Bonus multiplier number was 3.

Spicer purchased his winning ticket at C Fresh Market, 801 University Ave. in Des Moines.

Lotto America® is a new game with a familiar name!

The original Lotto*America game was launched in 1988 by the Multi-State Lottery Association. At the time, there were seven participating lotteries: Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Oregon, Rhode Island, West Virginia and Washington DC. Nine additional lotteries began selling the Lotto*America game in the years that followed.

The final Lotto*America drawing was held on April 18, 1992.

On April 19, 1992, sales began for a new multi-jurisdictional draw game – Powerball®.

Anoka County couple wins largest Hot Lotto jackpot in state history

An Anoka County couple is $11.7 million richer after purchasing the winning Hot Lotto ticket at an East Bethel Shell station Saturday afternoon.

Joe Meath and his wife Rhonda are bringing home the largest jackpot the game has ever paid out in Minnesota, according to the state lottery. The Minnesota Lottery verified the couple’s winning ticket Monday, and introduced them as the state’s newest millionaires in an afternoon news conference.

Joe Meath, 53, who retired from Xcel Energy three years ago after suffering a back injury, says he plays the lottery every week, but this is the first time he’s won big, FOX 9 reports.

“We’re just ordinary people,” Rhonda Meath, 51, told the Star Tribune. She says she won’t quit her job at the Lake Elmo Inn. “We’re going to do what we do.”

They plan to give money to their children and grandchildren, FOX 9 notes.

The downside of winning the lottery is the amount of money the IRS takes in taxes from the winnings, Forbes notes. But for the Meaths, it’s like they hit the jackpot twice – the required taxes on the prize, totaling 32.25 percent or roughly $3.7 million, are being paid for by the lottery. This is the case for all Hot Lotto jackpots, unlike other big name lottery games, according to the Hot Lotto website.

The winning numbers from Saturday night’s drawing were 1-2-3-25-30 and the Hot Ball of 19.

Lottery officials said the Meaths are the 11th Hot Lotto jackpot winners in Minnesota, and their prize is the largest. The last time a winning Hot Lotto ticket was sold in Minnesota was March 2012, the jackpot was worth $2.99 million. The record Hot Lotto jackpot is $19.97 million, according to USA Lottery.

Hot Lotto is played in 15 states and the District of Columbia. A Hot Lotto ticket is $1 and players choose five numbers from one to 47 and one Hot Ball number from one to 19. The jackpot starts at $1 million and grows each week until someone wins, according to the Minnesota State Lottery.

South Dakota Lottery officials told KELO that a ticket sold in Hot Springs is worth $90,000 – the winning ticket matched all five numbers, but missed the Hot Ball number. The winner’s prize tripled because they purchased the $1 Sizzler option, KELO notes.
