here are some details

match 6 numbers 1-42
if you match all 6 you win 1,000 a week for life
drawings will be held wednesday and saturday night
first drawing will be march 1,2006



looks like they want the drawings on nights that mega millions isn't drawn....doesn't look good for tennessee because this drawing might be drawn the same time as powerball......

    1,000 a week? Better than Lucky For Life here in PA, but ugh. And it doesn't even grow. That's bad, bad idea. Lotto South isn't anything to write home about either, but come on.

      i agree.....i'm very disapointed but i guess they figured it couldn't compete with the jackpots for mega millions so they fixed it at 1,000 a week for life.personally i think it will bite the dust just like lotto south.lotto south wasn't great but it didn't suck either.it was ok.i'm betting that tennessee doesn't join though because this game will probably be drawn the same time as powerball and thats a conflict of interest......

        6/42 is only 1 in 5,245,786 where as our PA LFL 6/38 game is 1 in 2,760,681.  I'd GO FOR IT as $52k a year is about I guess $38k after taxes, not a bad piece of change.  Is it really "for life" or for only 20 years?  Check the fine print, and then SUE WHEN YOU WIN!

            In Virginia, the smart player will figure out that he or she is better off playing Cash 5...

            Put $5 on the same five numbers and win $500,000 before taxes.
            Odds of winning Cash 5 Jackpot: 1 in 278,256.


            Win for Life offers $520,000 lump sum before taxes.
            Odds of winning Win for Life Jackpot: 1 in 5.2 million.

                Cash 5 is great!!!  Twenty tickets can hit the jackpot without affecting the payout.  That's just...Crazy

                Congrats on getting 4 out of 5!  I hope you continue to post predictions for Cash 5!!

                    Well I'm sure Cash will feel a little better knowing there's a cash option. And the prize structure is a lot like Tri-State Megabucks (the current one, not the one that's coming). I'm still dissapointed in their decision in not having a rolling jackpot.

                      The VA lottery site says nothing about a cash option. And there's no mention of whether tickets will cost $1 or $2.

                        You can choose a lump sum instead.

                          I'm sure WFL will be hyped in a glitzy advertising campaign and people will be enticed to play it. They'll probably have very good sales figures at first, but IMHO, I don't think this game will be successful in the long term.

                          I still think that the GLC should bring back Lotto Georgia. If WFL doesn't do well, they may be encouraged to do just that. Time will tell.

                              What happens to the various prize levels when no one wins the grand prize?  If the prize stays at a fixed level, I hope each individual state can bring in another pick-6 game that allows for the jackpot to rollover.
