$20 Million Lotto South Jackpot Is Sixth Highest Ever

Lotto SouthLotto South: $20 Million Lotto South Jackpot Is Sixth Highest Ever

While many people's attention was diverted by the Super Bowl and other events, the Lotto South jackpot has been quietly growing.

With no jackpot winner in Saturday's Lotto South drawing, the jackpot has grown to an estimated $20 million, which is the sixth highest amount since the game began in September 2001.

Lotto South is played in Georgia, Kentucky, and Virginia with drawings at 11:00 p.m. on Wednesdays and Saturdays.  Its record-high jackpot was $26 million for the January 5, 2002 drawing.

Ten Lotto South jackpots have been won by tickets purchased in Virginia since the game began.  The largest Lotto South jackpot won in Virginia was $20.4 million, which was claimed by Jimmy and Cindy Tran of Roanoke in March 2002.

Although there was no jackpot winner in Saturday's drawing, 45 tickets matched five of the six numbers to each win $922; 1,849 tickets matched four numbers to each win $88; and 35,225 tickets matched three numbers to each win $5.  All Lotto South prizes are pari-mutuel.

    i would like to see the following states join lotto south:



    TN, SC, WV, FL, LA, MD, and DE.



    They all appear to be having some trouble supporting an in-state Lotto game (except FL, for the most part), and they can really make the jackpots grow.

    I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

      Dr:

      Remember FL does not have a multi-state game.

        exactly, and since jeb bush is against powerball, and mega millions supposedly will not let another state join, perhaps lotto south is the one for FL.
