TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas Lottery officials are waiting for someone to claim a $5.3 million jackpot.
A winning ticket for the multistate Hot Lotto game was sold in southeast Kansas before Saturday's drawing.
The winner will have a choice of an annual payment of about $210,000 for each of the next 25 years or a lump-sum payment of about $2.2 million after taxes.
Players pick five numbers between 1 and 39, plus a single ``hot ball'' number between 1 and 19. Drawings are Wednesday and Saturday.
The top prize starts at $1 million.
Twelve states and the District of Columbia participate in the game.
