Georgia Lottery starts 2-for-1 Fantasy 5 Fridays

Georgia LotteryGeorgia Lottery: Georgia Lottery starts 2-for-1 Fantasy 5 Fridays

The Georgia Lottery began a new promotion of its Fantasy 5 game Friday, increasing players' chances to win the Pick 5-style lotto game.

Every Friday from October 10, 2008 through January 16, 2009 is "Fantasy 5 Friday" with a "buy one, get one free" promotion.

A free Fantasy 5 Quick Pick ticket for the next drawing will be automatically printed following any Fantasy 5 ticket purchased on Friday, through the end of the promotion in January.

Fantasy 5 is a Georgia Lottery game in which players select five numbers between 1 and 39.  A ticket wins the jackpot when all five numbers on the ticket match the five nubers drawn by the lottery.

The Fantasy 5 game has a rolling jackpot that increases every time there are no tickets sold matching the numbers drawn.  The jackpot starts at approximately $50,000, and continues getting larger until it is won.

When playing on Fantasy 5 Fridays, players only need to purchase one Fantasy 5 ticket in order to receive the free Fantasy 5 Quick Pick.

Only one free Fantasy 5 Quick Pick will be printed for each Fantasy 5 ticket purchased.  (A ticket can have one or more plays.)

For example, if one player purchases a Fantasy 5 ticket with 1 play and another player purchases a ticket with 5 plays, each player will receive one free Quick Pick.

Players purchasing their ticket with a play slip should not mark their play slip with the additional free Quick Pick.  Only tickets that the player is purchasing should be marked on the play slip.  The free Fantasy 5 Quick Pick is automatically generated as a separate ticket by the lottery machine on Fantasy 5 Fridays.

Thanks for Konane for the tip.

    Not a bad promotion at all.

    I'll play on Friday, and see if I can use 5 slips each with 1 play marked so I will end up with 5 free quick picks. :D

    If this does not work, I'll go to another store, there are like 4 within 2 blocks or come back later in the day.

      Diamond, I did something similar Friday.  I used 2 separate play slips so I could get 2 free tickets instead of 1. Big Grin

      I'll probably start playing Fantasy 5 on Fridays as long as this promotion is going on (through Jan. 2009).  It certainly sounds like a good promotion.  Of course, any lotto promotion that gives you free chances to win sounds good, doesn't it? Smile

      A Gold account on Lottery Post:  $4.95

      A Millionaire Jumbo Bucks scratcher:  $20

      Airfare and hotel in March 2007 to see The Price Is Right before Bob Barker retired:  $600-something

        Nice! I don't see why it wouldn't work, because the store will get the comission for selling the winning ticket.

          This is kinda odd.  No one will ever want to buy more than one ticket at a time on Fridays now.  If I were to buy ten I would definetly old up the line and tell the clerk to print them all off seperatly...haha

            It will work guys.  I've done it.  In fact i purchased 20 tickets by filling out one play on each ticket and got 20 free tickets.

              Well, the extra play does come at a price. The payouts are about half the amount they would be. So you're really not getting anything extra from the promotion.
