      I'm going to say only KY will drop out right now.  VA and GA may take longer to decide.

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

        Those two states are pretty much encircled by Powerball states.  If they hope to continue it as a multi-state game, they need to have the input of those neighboring states.  I would guess that the game probably has to move the weekend drawing to Friday to attract those states.  Monday, Wednesday, and Friday might be a viable move for Lotto South

          "REPORT OF THE AUDIT OF THE KENTUCKY LOTTERY CORPORATION

          http://www.kylottery.com/annual_report/2005-2004KYLotteryaudit.pdf

          In September 2001, the KLC introduced Lotto South as a replacement game for Lotto Kentucky. The KLC participates in this game with the Georgia and Virginia lotteries.  The increased population base allows for higher and faster growing jackpots than the KLC could generate on its own.  Despite those attributes, Lotto South sales for 2005 continued to decline to $17.5 million, $6.4 million or 26.6% less than 2004 sales and $2.5 million less than quota. Lotto South sales for 2004 were $23.9 million, $.6 million or 2.5% less than 2003 sales, but $3.1 million above quota...

          Currently Known Facts, Decisions, or Conditions

          A change to the Powerball game in August 2005 should generate higher jackpots, which in turn should generate higher sales for the Corporation.  A change to the Lotto South game is planned for the third quarter of FY 2006..."

            Well I think the change Kentucky is mentioning is it's in-state Lucky For Life-type game.

              I'm not sure how you're interpreting it, but Kentucky's web site mentions Lotto South specifically:

              "A change to the Lotto South game is planned for the third quarter of FY 2006..."

              I'm not sure what they mean by "change," however I wouldn't think that Kentuck could make a format change the Lotto South game without approval from VA and GA.
