One thing that might happen is PA might just retool the game. They might just put Lucky For Life in the form of what OR & WA has.

      OR and WA need to discontinue their games as well.

        Some wacko believes Tennessee's next online game will be an Unlucky for Life clone.

          they're entitled to believe whatever they want.

          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.

            I am rarely in the state of PA but my system often matches 3 of 6, but the top prize is a tad weak in light of Powerball. If you calculate your life expectancy and add up the 36K a year vs. a modest Powerball jackpot, Powerball pays a lot more. But the attraction for Life is the easier odds, the instant win chance (if the terminals are honest!) and the ease of getting at least 3 numbers. They do have a scratchoff Win For Life also, same price, so another advantage of course is you get to pick numbers. I would not scrap it.

                If a "lifetime" game had a cash option, what percentage would take the lump sum?

                    PA is not willing to give up on Lucky for Life just yet. I was surfing their website today when I noticed that in February, retailers will participate in a voluntary Lucky for Life promotion. It's something like players can enter their non-winning LFL tickets in a second-chance drawing that is conducted at that retailer each week. And, in my mailbox today there was coupons in there for Buy One Lucky for Life ticket get one Lucky for Life ticket free. There is one in there for February and one in there for May. Which leads me to beleive that PA plans on keeping the game thru the summer. I don't know, we'll have to wait and see what comes of this horrible game.

                      I'm sure PA is getting a huge profit margins from this game. And they're still probably not making much money. I wish they would replace it with Wild Card Lotto or Super 7. Take a piece of the past into the future.

                        Unlucky for Life should be rated NC-71 (nobody under the age of 71 is allowed to play).

                            "You've got a friend in PA" if they're boycotting Unlucky for Life.
