I don't know if this is in other states but VA will have it's first draw of "Decades Of Dollars" on Feb 3rd. Drawings are Mondays & Thursdays.

http://www.valottery.com/decadesofdollars/howtoplay.asp

Basically it is a 1-47 game, 6 numbers drawn and the top prize is $250,000 a year for 30 years or $4,000,000 cash.

Prizes:

2/6 Free Easy Pick Ticket ODDS: 1 in 7.1

3/6 $10 ODDS: 1 in 50

4/6 $100 ODDS: 1 in 873

5/6 $10,000 ODDS: 1 in 43,649

6/6 $250,000 a year for 30 years or $4,000,000 cash. ODDS: 1 in 10,737,573

It cost $2 a ticket to play.

Anyone in VA gonna play this?

I was going to get a ticket today...but got a MM & W4L ticket instead...I might check this out though. Thumbs Up

$1,000,000

          On way to store to get one now. I don't like the $2 per ticket cost but at the same time I can win by only matching 2 numbers and I can win $7 million at 10,000,000:1 or play power play on mega millions for $2 and only win $1,000,000 at about 4 million:1.

           

          Slightly better IMO. GL to all! I hope we get a jackpot winner on the first draw!

            I saw where Kentucky had two $10,000 winners and judging by the number of other prize winners, it looks like there were quite a few players.

                Va had 7 $10,000 winners. Kentucky and Georgia each had 2 $10,000 winners. No one won the top prize.

                  Kentucky paid out $54,730 plus another 15,100 free tickets and is much higher than the MM and PB $2 payoffs.

                    Ohio has its Classic Lotto (a 6/49 game) with a starting jackpot of $1M and rolls at least $100K each drawing until it's won.  Saturday's jackpot will be $20.9M with a 30 yrs annuity (Cash Value 50%) and its tickets cost $1.  I don't see Ohio adding a similar game but it seems like the kind of game many have been asking for (smaller jackpots with larger lower tiers prizes).  Now lets see if it attracts more players.

                     tickets or chances per draw  1
                     possible combos of 6/49 numbers = 13983816
                     MATCHES   ODDS              WINNING COMBOS          PAYOUTS
                      6/6    1 : 13983816         1                      Jackpot

                        Ah cool. Thanks. Sorry.

                        I won a free ticket...I am gonna start thinking about a strategy for this game...it is hard because it just started. I plan on using a wheel but picking 18 numbers from a pool of 47 with no history to go by is going to be a pain.
