Well, not much to say. Lotto South has about the same odds/payout ratio as Lotto Georgia. And Cash 3 and Cash 4 both have midday drawings, and have pair payouts. There are only two things I would change.

Quick Draw

Could stand to increase the payouts a little. Make the 2 spot prize $10 instead of $9, for example.

Fantasy 5

They need to advertise an estimated jackpot, not just post how much is in the jackpot after the drawing and just put it on the website. Also, increase the dang 4 out of 5 payoffs! $80 for 4 out of 5? Lotto South pays $75, just $5 less, on average for 4 out of 6! I'd expect that from the old 5/35 version, but not from a 5/39. Change the percentages to something like this.


Percentage
Avg. Prize
Match 5
60%
$60,000 per roll
Match 4
20%
$300
Match 3
20%
$10
Match 2
0%

    i like it, but i would also add the megaplier to mega millions.

    also, GA should hold their night Cash 4 drawing with the night Cash 3 drawing. seriously, that's just stupid keeping the draws seperate. 

    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.

      They have the Fantasy 5 drawing with the Cash 4 draw.  Like you said I don't know why they have the set up like this.  It doesn't hurt I guess, however, if it were up to me I would hold off on the cash 3 drawing until the Cash4 and Fantasy 5 drawing. 

      How are you going to win if you don't play?

        Yeah, good point. Why are the Cash 3 and 4 draws separate? I would change that. And when I said 'pair' payouts, I actually meant 'fair' payouts. I made a typo.

          I'm in total agreement with the 4-5 prize being a little bigger.  I've been saying since I moved to GA that Fantasy 5 should have a 2nd prize more like NY.
