ND Lottery launches Lotto America on Sunday

BISMARCK -- North Dakota retailers will begin sales of Lotto America tickets starting Sunday, Nov. 12.

The North Dakota Lottery’s newest game will launch in 13 states.

The first drawing will be Wednesday, Nov. 15.

Since there was no grand prize-winner for the final Hot Lotto drawing, the jackpot prize fund has rolled over to the Lotto America game, making the grand prize for the game’s first drawing $15 million.

In the new game, players will choose five balls from 1 to 52 and a “star ball” from 1 to 10. Players can do a quick pick or select their own numbers..

Jackpot winners can get paid in a 30-year annuity or a lump sum.

Tickets are $1 per play, but there are bonus buys where players can multiply all non-jackpot prizes by two to five times.

Drawings will be at 10 p.m. on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
