Kentucky says it's ending, however I saw this from the Virginia Lottery "playbook":

This leads me to believe that Win For Life will not actually end, but will instead become a Virginia-only game. Though Georgia has yet to announce anything, they might be keeping WfL as well, stay tuned.

        don't think it really add anything new at all that would interest players. Would love to see a multi-state raffle

          I can only play 1 game ............... and that will continue to be Mega Millions or Powerball, depending on which one I want to play.

            That would be an awesome idea.

                  Holly Lahti, who is apparently from the small town of Rathdrum, Idaho is reportedly the other winner of the other half of the Mega Millions Jackpot, according to the AP!

                    I wish Washington (the state) had this game.  I could definitely survive off $170,000 after taxes for the next 30 years.  Hell,  I can live off $85,000 and make the money last for 60 years, by that time I would be in my 90's.  We have a win for life game where it's $4000 a week, but it's a scratch game with only 2 winners and the tickets cost $20.00....I'm tempted to buy one, but that's expensive.

                    All things are possible to those that believe!!!!!!Wink

                      I love me some raffle action.  I actually won $100 on the Connecticut Super Draw from a ticket I bought on the way home from NYC. 

                      Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont actually tried a multi-state raffle back at the end of 2007.  I think Vermont was the only state that didn't sell out. Disapprove  Now, if you made it a nationwide multi-state raffle with one guaranteed BILLION dollar winner, that would definitely turn some heads and sell some tickets.  People would drop $20...$50...perhaps even $100 for a single shot at a billion.

                        I'm not really digging the $2 for 1 play.

                            I made the short drive to Kentucky today to try my shot at this new game. Got a $4 ticket(2 lines). $250,000/year for 30 years sounds pretty nice to me. Wish me luck!
