Some changes are coming to one South Dakota Lottery game.
Winners of the Hot Lotto game will no longer have the option of choosing annual payments. Players will have to take a single cash payment with taxes already paid.
Jackpots for the lottery game will increase. The jackpot will begin at $1 million and will increase a minimum of $50,000.
Other new changes include: the number of white balls available to be chosen will increase from 39 to 47, the game's second prize will increase to $30,000 and third prize will increase to $3,000. Lower tier prizes will also increase.
The price to play the game will stay the same.
The changes will go into effect on May 15.
