Delaware launches new lottery

January 29, 2008 8:05:24 AM PST
Delaware Lottery officials are starting a new game tomorrow with a jackpot close to $5 million.

Hot Lotto is already being played in 11 states and D.C. Players select five of 39 white balls and one of 19 orange Hot Balls.

Lower-tier prizes can automatically be tripled if players pay for the $1 "sizzler" option.

The odds of winning the jackpot are nearly one in 11 million.

Drawings will be Wednesday and Saturday nights.
