Rule Details

Rule Number: 14P024
Title: Hot Lotto Rules - effective May 17, 2014.
Type: Standard
Status: Adopted
Agency: Vermont Lottery Commission.
Legal Authority: 31 V.S.A. ยง 654a(a).
Summary: Pursuant to 31 V.S.A. Sec. 654a(a), the Vermont Lottery Commission (VLC) has decided to stop offering the Hot Lotto game as of May 17, 2014. With the continuing decline in participation in the game, the frequency of the jackpot being won decreases. The Vermont Lottery will stop selling the Hot Lotto game and remove itself form the Hot Lotto game group. Prizes can be claimed for up to one year from the last drawing date of May 17, 2014.
Persons Affected: The affected parties include Lottery players, licensed retailer agents, Vermont Lottery Commission, and the State of Vermont Education Fund.
Economic Impact: It is anticipated that the economic impact would be minimal if any, to the Vermont Education Fund. Our goal is to alert those existing Hot Lotto players to other games with similar jackpots or ticket prices that may appeal to them. Worse case scenario would be the loss of all sales (aprox. $850k). *NOTE* Table transcribed for inclusion in database: Sales Agents - $850,000 x 6 of sales equaling $51,000 loss; Gaming Vendors - $850,000 x 2.9763 equaling $25,000 loss; Vermont Education Fund - $850,000 x 30 equaling $255,000 loss).
Posting date: May 21,2014
