"... Proposed Environment

In February of 2006, a new multi-state lottery game called "Win for Life" will be launched in Georgia, Kentucky and Virginia to replace the current Lotto South game. Since each participating lottery already has a comprehensive web site, we would like to develop a simple and small site that is dedicated to this game and its winners.

The Georgia Lottery Corporation (GLC) is requesting quotes on behalf of the Win for Life Consortium for the following services:..."

    That means the top prize will always be a fixed annuity. With three states participating, the secondary prizes could be much larger than those in the current Lotto South format.

        Agreed. I wonder what the matrix of this new game will be, and if it will be ball drawn. If it's computer drawn, I won't be playing.

        Perhaps this will just be a brief detour before Georgia reconsiders bringing back Lotto Georgia!   Wink

          I don't think it precludes Virginia and Georgia reintroducing their 6-ball games.  Most states seem to have both a Win For Life annuity game and an in-state jackpot game.

            That would certainly be a win-win situation!

            If the GLC would reintroduce Lotto Georgia in its original format, I'd be so happy that I'd be willing to spend some of my lottery budget on their new Win For Life game, too (IF WFL is ball drawn)!

                I don't know what to think about this. I'll have to reserve judgement until after I see the game specs.

                  I wonder if TN is looking to join this "win for life" game.  Wouldn't at all surprise me if they are looking into it.

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

                    I hope win for life isn't computerized. What would be the rules of win for life when it starts in February? Oh well, I guess no more Lotto Georgia and/or Lotto South down the line.

                      It wouldn't surprise me either.  Perhaps it would be a good thing if TN joined.  We'll have to wait and see what type of game it is - matrix, ball vs computer drawn, etc.  I haven't found any specifics about the game, but then I haven't spent a lot of time searching either.

                        Making Win For Life computerized would be the biggest mistake they could make.  Hopefully,  the lottery officials know better.  Maybe we need to email them the link to the petition to eliminate computerized drawings!

                          I doubt they'll be going computerized. Remember any decisions regarding this game has to be approved by each lottery, and I doubt GA and VA would want to go that route.

                              Good point! However, there have been too many lottery officials who   have turned to the dark side. Hopefully, GA and VA won't make that mistake, and will insist that WFL is ball drawn.
