Kentucky's sales were affected by the launch of the state lottery in Tennessee in 2004.  Tennessee plays Powerball on the same night and that would impact cross-border sales traffic for Lotto South.  Lotto South needs to be adapted if it's to accomodate states that have Powerball.

    I agree.  If it were better suited for PB states such as SC, LA, and TN would join.

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

          Kentucky also plays Power Ball on the same night, so I doubt that the launching of Tennessee's lottery is entirely to blame for Lotto South's poor performance. 

          Several people have indicated that they prefer Lotto South over Power Ball because of the lower odds.  If a person favors lower-odds games, then why would they care if Tennessee has Power Ball on the same night?    It seems to me that they would continue to play Lotto South, even if it means crossing the border to get tickets.  But Lotto South sales are dropping, or at best, basically flat.

          IMOH, Lotto South will not be able to compete with Power Ball or Mega Millions.  People who favor large jackpots will play those games and skip Lotto South.  An instate lottery such as Lotto Georgia, which had a 6/46 matrix, will have even lower odds than Lotto South.  And decent payouts.

              According to VA Lottery.com, lotto south is being replaced with 6+1/42 game called "win for life" and GA, KY, and VA are still apart of it. Changes coming in february 06.

                I personally think the reason that Lotto South did so poorly with the jackpots is because it was only 3 states. As for Powerball in Tn, I had really hoped that when they started a multistate game that they would have went with the Mega Millions game. Seeing that I live on the border to both TN/KY I could play both. I used to play Powerball in Ky but with Tn not taxing lottery winnings I play Powerball in TN. I still play pick 3/4 in Ky but Powerball is in Tn. I don't know if Lotto South tried to sell the game to other southern states, but if they would have maybe that would have helped it. I know when KY had their own lotto the Jackpot never went up very much. From what I've heard the last draw for Lotto South is Feb 25th

                I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!
