Neither game has a cash option. The OR game has perhaps 15 plays for $2, while the PA game is a straight $2 lotto game with an "Instant Lose" gimmick.

    By definition, there wouldn't be a cash option; otherwise it would be called, Lucky for a Day.

      Come on Cash, what's the matter?  $3,000. a month for life minus taxes isn't ample enough?

      You want a cash option?  Play the MegaRip or the PowerRip.  Play the game you want instead of dwelling on the one that isn't up to your liking. 

      Yes, I'd like more money too, but all things considered, the Lucky for Life game, for all its flaws, sure beats the jackpot games out there whose odds suck the dollars out of zillions of people every week.

      But hey, maybe someone in Harrisburg is convinced of what you say and will engineer a change.  Until then, I'll keep looking forward to winning this game...eventually! :-)

        The amount of the top prize is not my beef. It's the LACK OF A CASH OPTION!!

          Cash - you need to find another hobby. The lack of a cash option is predominant in the lottery business.  The bottom line is the bottom line.  If you won a cash option, it would be half of an annuity option, and you'd still be peeing on your boots.

            Online lottery games with annuity prizes almost always now have a cash option. Many scratch games exist (especially in MA and NY) with a top prize of $1 million (or x-per week etc) that are annuity-only.

              So what!

              The dog is dead, been dead, ain't gonna react to the beating. Find a new dog and beat on it.

                And now KY is considering replacing Lotto South (don't know what GA or VA are doing) with a "lose for life" game. Maybe KY is at least thinking of offering a cash option.

                  Cash - read previous. Same dead dog. Rolling it over doesn't bring it back to life.

                    I think both games are fine. It's not like they are hiding how the prize is dealt out to the winners. The people who play know that it is an annuity type deal. Again, if the way the game is set up bugs you...play a game that offers cash. It really isn't a hard concept to grasp.

                    Dance like no one is watching.

                      belly:

                      Wouldn't both games be BETTER if a cash option were available? Senior citizens might then want to play them.

                        Cash - same answer.  No.  If it was not a popular game it was have been removed.  They don't keep games that loose money, and unpopular games loose money.  Fact of life.  No spin.  Just logic.

                        Cheers

                          Actually no it wouldn't Cash. The game was created to be an annuity type game. If they wanted it to be cash they wouldn't have called it lucky for life. And if senior citizens have a problem with excepting the way the game is, then they too don't have to play. There are many different types of lotto games to choose from. Simple as that. No one is being deceived.

                            Besides if they changed LFL, Cash would not have any posts! As stated by me and others, there are many other games out there. Stick with what you like, forget the others.

                              Even if Unlucky for Life got a cash option, there's still OR Lose for Life, the likely beginning of a "lose for life" game in KY, MA's annuity only Mega$.uck$, and numerous annuity-only scratch games.
