Think about it. If the coming GA-KY-VA game doesn't have a cash option, it would be the same kind of lottery tragedy as keeping LS but no longer allowing winners to take the lump sum. And no sane lottery player would want that.

    CASH Only, I liked the cash option. I'm disappointed that LS has to go and be replaced by Win For Life, but also disappointed that it's annunity all the way.

      Well according to the article I read the sales for Lotto South have not been that good.  So they are hoping this game will make sales jump some.  They tried to change the game a couple of times, and seems nothing was working.  I guess folks just like playing Fantasy 5 and Mega Millions more.

       

      The odds of winning Win or life will be 1 in 5.2 million as compared to one in 14 million.

        But will the WFL tickets be $1 or $2? And the cash option (if there is any) is $520,000, v $750,000 in the WA scratch game Lucky for Life.

          The article I read did not say anything about the cost.  I'm thinking it will still be $1.00 per game considering that Lotto South is.  A winner can chose the $520,000 option before taxes. 

           

          All I know is players chosse six numbers from 1 - 42.  There is a bonus ball for the remaining prizes.

            We have been seeing a $2 ticket cost for a number of games that are not the "classic lotto" variety, including PA Unlucky for Life (no cash option).

              There is a $52,000 prize for those that match five balls + the free ball.  Not too shabby.

                Well I guess we will know eventually.  I have no idea how much it will cost right now.

                  A good many folks liked playing Lotto Georgia, before the GLC ended the game. It was a great game with 6/46 matrix, drawn once per week. I'd like to see the return of Lotto Georgia, in its original format.
