To the editor:
I have worked part-time at a local convenience store that sells Kansas Lottery. In the literature that the state puts outs in regard to the "Kansas Hot Lotto," nowhere does it mention that it is associated with other jurisdictions.
Due to this reason, I have unknowingly informed the customers incorrectly regarding their chances of winning the "Kansas Hot Lotto" compared to the Powerball.
For this reason, I would like to inform the public of what I have recently found out and thought other consumers would like to know. I have recently learned from a Kansas Lottery liaison that there are actually 10 lottery jurisdictions that sell Hot Lotto. They are: the District of Columbia, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota, West Virginia and New Mexico.
Kansas joined Hot Lotto in March of 2006. The game was introduced in April of 2002.
