CLIVE, Iowa – A Dallas County woman was just one number away from winning a big Hot Lotto jackpot Saturday and ended up winning a $9,000 prize.
Mary Sue Beane of Redfield matched four of the first five numbers and the Hot Ball in Saturday’s drawing to win a $3,000 prize, but since she added the Sizzler® option to her purchase, her prize tripled to $9,000.
Beane bought her winning ticket at Casey’s, 425 Second St. in Redfield, and claimed her prize Monday at the lottery’s headquarters in Clive.
The winning numbers in Saturday’s $5.6 million jackpot drawing were: 19-25-26-31-32 and Hot Ball 19. No one won the jackpot in that night’s drawing and the jackpot has continued to grow since then, climbing to $5.69 million for Wednesday’s drawing. The game has an all-cash jackpot with withholding taxes paid, meaning that if the advertised jackpot is $5.69 million, the winner will receive a one-time, lump-sum payment for that full amount.
