SC Lottery to end Carolina Cash 6 game

South Carolina LotterySouth Carolina Lottery: SC Lottery to end Carolina Cash 6 game

COLUMBIA, S.C. — The Carolina Cash 6 game from the South Carolina Education Lottery will end with the Thursday, October 17 drawing.

The announcement comes after ticket sales for the game introduced on April 2 of this year fell short of expectations.

"Our players never fully embraced the Carolina Cash 6 game, and without their support there was no reason to continue selling tickets for a game that did not generate player interest," Lottery Executive Director Paula Harper Bethea said. "At the Education Lottery we continually refresh our products and listen to feedback from players. Our players have spoken on Carolina Cash 6. We owe it to them and to the state to discontinue the game and find other ways to maximize funding for education."

Ticket sales for advance draws will taper down leading up to the final drawing on Thursday, October 17. Players can purchase Carolina Cash 6 tickets up until 6:45 p.m. that evening for the 6:59 p.m. final drawing.

Winning ticket holders will still have 180 days from the draw date to claim prizes.

Once all verified winning tickets have been claimed and paid, any remaining funds from the Carolina Cash 6 game will be given to the state to support educational initiatives in South Carolina.

Thanks to John R. for the tip.

I guess they just didn't want to spend $2 bucks to win a grand prize of only 200K.

    The people stated their stand by refusing to play this game. Demote the team that proposed this failed game. They did not do any market research.

    That money's gone fo ever

      They did have some interesting pay out options, which suggests they expected players to plop down $6 dollars on three lines like clockwork.  But i guess the game just couldn't compete with the Payout of Powerball at $2 bucks a line.

        You purchased one ticket per $2.00. You got one line either self pick or quick pick. the next two lines on the ticket you got automatic quick pick.

        With 3 lines on each ticket each line cost $0.66

        I played it and thought it was a nice game.

        The top prize in the game 6 of 6 did not pay a lot compared to other lottos 6 of 6 prize.

          This game is the biggest scam I have ever seen. The two additional lines you get are bunched together numbers. I bought three different tickets and I still did not have all of the numbers 1-38. People realized that this game was crap and simply stop playing it.

              Let me get this straight.

              Could I do a four number fixed wheel in three lines and hope to win $1000,

              or was it mandatory to receive the two quick pick lines?

              What was the total ball  count?

                Idaho has Weekly Grand where they want you to pay $2 for a maximum prize of $52K.  They also have a 2nd chance for losing tickets where they draw a winner of $5,200 each month.  But that still isn't very good IMHO.  I'm surprised Idaho's is still going, but it's been around for several years now.

                  It was mandatory on the two quick pick lines per ticket.

                  Total ball count 38 in the game pool.

                    I am not very fond of quick picks.

                    Sounds like typical God complex government intervention.

                        Kind of reminds me of the El Gordo lottery failure promotion a decade ago back here in Maryland. The Lottery folks thought the folks were going to plunk down $10 dollars a play, wrong. lol

                          so instead of giving the game a try they decide to get rid of it. what a waste of money.

                            This is the real reason why they're getting rid of this game: it has a 74% payout rate. That's more than most scratch-offs. It's really a shame it's going away.

                            You know where to find me.
