How to Play Hot Spot

Playing is easy. To learn how, just follow these 6 simple steps.

STEP 1

Using a Lottery playslip, which you can find at any Lottery retailer, choose the Spot (set of numbers) you want to play per draw - you can play 1 to 10 Spots. Next, pick your numbers from 1 to 80 or play randomly generated numbers with Quick Pick®. Your numbers must equal the number of “Spots” you selected. For example, if you picked a “3 Spot” you must play three numbers.

STEP 2

Choose Bulls-eye for a chance to win a bigger prize. Your Bulls-eye wager must be at least $2 and equal your Hot Spot one. This means for a $4 play, $2 goes to Hot Spot and $2 to Bulls-eye. You don’t need to pick separate numbers for Bulls-eye.

STEP 3

You can play up to 1-5, 10, 20, 50, or 100 consecutive draws on one playslip.

STEP 4

Decide how much you want to play per draw. You can play between $1-$5 or $10 and $20 per selection.

STEP 5

So many ways to increase your chances of winning! Choose your wager, choose your Spots and choose Bulls-eye.

STEP 6
