Hi Everyone,

Now I definitely see where the extra funds for the 4 of 5 and 3 of 5 prizes are coming from.  Last night no one won the Georgia Fantasy 5 and only $28,000.00 rolled over.  That is really sad.  If your 5 lucky numbers would have come up last night you would have won a big $28,000 instead of $100,000 or more.

WOW.

      John,

      When I first read you post about the amount of the lower prizes I checked Ohio Rolling Cash5 payouts which is also a 5/39 game.  Ohio Rolling Cash5's jackpot starts at $100K and rolls from there until it's won and the lower prizes have fixed amounts of $1, $10 and $100 which means the majority of the prize money goes to the jackpot while Georgia divide the prize money equally for each prize level which explains the different payout amounts.  It's kinda like California dividing up its MegaMillions prize money different from the other MegaMillions states.  In the last MegaMillions drawing, 5+0 paid $1.2M in California and $250K in the rest of the states.

          ray:

          Pari-mutuel means the prize pool is divided by the number of winners (think horse racing) as opposed to winning the same amount each time you have X numbers.

            RJOH The fixed amounts for Ohio rolling cash is $1, $10 and $300

            For 2 winning numbers you get $1 dollar

            For 3 number you get $10 dollars

            And for 4 numbers you get $300 dollars

            I recently won the $300 dollars two weeks ago form rolling cash One number away from hitting it all :)

                So many states have this game now 5/39.  I was recently looking through all the lotteries websites and found at least 10 states that had the game and most did call it Fantasy 5.

                      That's interesting.

                      Of course, Lottery Post has all the latest info on ALL games, not just Rolling Cash 5.

                      One of the many reasons that many people choose to upgrade their memberships here - the info is correct, and if there's an error, it is correctly quickly.

                      For Rolling Cash 5, the Ohio Results page has all the Ohio Results, and then from the Rolling Cash 5 popup menu, you can navigate to the Rolling Cash 5 Game Information page.

                      Premium members get lots more information, including extensive stats, full drawing history, full jackpot history, and the best lottery results search engine on the Internet.

                       

                      Check the State Lottery Report Card
                      What grade did your lottery earn?

                          I am trying to help long-time Lottery Post members who have not yet "seen the light" to see what they have been missing.

                          I also like to give people an opportunity to support this web site, which costs a lot to operate.
