DES MOINES, Iowa - An Ackley man won a $30,000 prize in the Jan. 5 Hot Lotto drawing.

Don Nederhoff claimed his prize Wednesday at the Iowa Lottery's headquarters in Des Moines. He purchased his winning ticket at Kum & Go, 420 Sherman St. in Ackley.

Nederhoff's $30,000 winning ticket came close to winning it all in the Jan. 5 drawing, matching the first five numbers but missing the Hot Ball. The winning numbers in the $8.96 million Hot Lotto jackpot drawing that night were: 4-6-11-28-29 and Hot Ball 10.

Players can multiply their non-jackpot prizes by three by purchasing the Hot Lotto with Sizzler option. The cost is $1 per play. Because Nederhoff added the Sizzler to his ticket, he multiplied his $10,000 win to $30,000.

Tickets in the game cost $1. Hot Lotto drawings are held at about 9:40 p.m. on Wednesdays and Saturdays, just before the Powerball® drawings.

There was no jackpot winner in the Jan. 5 drawing. Wednesday's estimated jackpot is $1 million.
