Hi Everyone,

I just learned today that the Georgia Lottery Corporation is changing the payout of the Fantasy 5 game effective August 7, 2005.  Right now if you hit 3 of 5 you normally win between $7.00 to $12.00.  The average payout for a 3 of 5 win will now be around $20.00.  Currently if you hit 4 of 5 you could expect to win $65.00 to $150.00.  Starting this Sunday you can expect to receive around $400.00 or more.

Great news for Georgia Lottery Players.

Thanks,

John - LA

        Is that coming from the Jackpot? Or are they just upping the payouts? Those sound an awful lot like the payouts one gets from Take Five.

            My guess is this. CASH Only will get his wish (of many) to make Take Five a jackpot game. Only thing is, it won't be in New York, but Georgia. In any case, I ought to get tickets next time I go to Georgia, which I hope is soon because I need a MARTA fix.

                  GA Fantasy 5 is entirely pari-mutuel. Are they going to change the matrix?

                    No they are not changing the matrix.  It is paramutual but the only way to get a bigger payout is to increase the percentages for the 2nd and 3rd tier prizes and lower the amount given to the jackpot for each drawing.  Spreading the wealth.

                      Spreading the wealth is great with me.  I have won 4 of 5 too many times in Georgia and received $90.00 for example.  Will be nice to win something decent like $400.00.  Now I can try a system of mine that cost $180.00 to play but often hits 4 of 5. 

                      Best of success and fortunes to everyone tonight.

                      Thanks,

                          Lottomike,  Lotto 5 is a popular game for TN.  Since they start est jackpots more and more people have been buying.  That's why there has been so many winners here as of late.  I really enjoy this game, however, I really like the $500,000 JP's too.  I wonder if GA is taking some away from the JP or just increasing the percentage?  Sometimes lotto 5 has winners of $300+ for 4/5.  The most I've seen for 3/5 is $11.  I think TN will give a 2/5 prize in the future because 1 in 100 will catch up to this game fast.

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