A person who purchased a Hot Lotto ticket in Minnesota is now $11.71 million richer, according to the lottery's website.

The Star Tribune says the lottery ticket was purchased in Anoka County and the required taxes on the prize, totaling 32.25 percent, are being paid by the lottery.

The record Hot Lotto jackpot is $19.97 million, according to USA Lottery. Lottery officials told the Star Tribune that of the 11 Hot Lotto jackpots that have been won in the state, this is the largest. The last time a winning Hot Lotto ticket was sold in Minnesota was March 2012, the jackpot was worth $2.99 million.

The winning numbers from Saturday night's drawing were 1-2-3-25-30 and the Hot Ball of 19.

Hot Lotto is played in 15 states and the District of Columbia. A Hot Lotto ticket is $1 and players choose five numbers from one to 47 and one Hot Ball number from one to 19. The jackpot starts at $1 million and grows each week until someone wins, according to the Minnesota State Lottery.

South Dakota Lottery officials told KELO that a ticket sold in Hot Springs is worth $90,000 – the winning ticket matched all five numbers, but missed the Hot Ball number. The winner's prize tripled because they purchased the $1 Sizzler option, KELO notes.
