Oregon (and Washington state) each have a Lotzee-style game with the unthinkable (for a computerized game) top prize of $1000-a-week-for-life.

    If it's selling well, they're going to keep selling it. If it's not selling, they'll drop it.

      I bet though the OR and WA games are not big sellers.

        Yet both have been around for several years (especially WA Quinto).

          well i hope they keep quinto esp. since its cash at once. The 1000$ a week game just doesn't appeal to me. Now if it's 1000 a day then that might get my intrest - otherwise no thanks.

            you wouldn't take $52,000 a year for life?

            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:

              Many people are turned off by lifetime prizes for the same reason as annuity-only prizes.

                It's not the annuity it's the amount. I can't quit work for 52k a year. After tax, a mortgage, health insurance and other bills there wouldn't be anything left for savings or for kids, etc. At 1000 a day though then I could get a house in a nice school district and have savings.

                    Well 3k and month and 1k a week is about the same. Either prize isn't going to let you retire unless you live in an area with very low home prices and have your heath insurance paid by someone else.

                      I don't think too many can retire on $52,000/yr.

                        Not with medical insurance being as expensive as it is.

                          Or car insurance, even if you switch to GEICO.
