It's an attractive prospect, buying a ticket that wins the lottery and winning a grand cash prize.
The North Dakota Lottery has launched a new game Lotto America. The new game replaces Hot Lotto, which was discontinued because it wasn't selling well. The final Hot Lotto drawing was Oct. 28 and did not have a final grand prize winner so the jackpot money has been rolled over to the new game. Jennifer Paris bought her first lottery ticket today, and made it a Lotto America ticket. We asked her what she would do if she won.
"It looked like it was about twenty thousand, so I would pay off my student loans," said Paris.
The new game's opening jackpot is $15 million and drawings are held two times a week.
