        I put not sure yet as I'm thinking it doesnt sound like much of a payout. I may not be around for long the way people drive around here so I wouldnt see much of it. Last night there were about 7 shots went off in the street in front of my house which didnt make me feel too safe in that way. Big house in a nice "sought after area" with gunshots going off ? Got me puzzled. I'd rather see Lotto South stay.

         

         Good Luck,

        Blackie.

          I voted "no." I agree that WFL is another step backwards. Especially with no Cash Option (at least that's what's been reported for Georgia).

          I have a feeling that this will come full circle and once WFL starts to fail, Lotto Georgia will be reinstated in it's original format.

          Before I found out about WFL replacing Lotto South, I had considered writing to the GLC to try to encourage them to reinstate Lotto Georgia as Lotto South's replacement.   However, I'm sure that they'll be all wrapped up in glitzy advertising for the new WFL campaign and I doubt that they'd be willing to consider other options right now.   I'll wait to see how WFL takes off, and try to time my letter after WFL sales have reached their peak (hopefully, that will be a short period of time).

          When I was in Georgia last month, I talked to two retailers who said they had their doubts about Win For Life.

              I'll play because the game is there.  I'm a little more open minded with these games.  I know it stinks for older generations not having a Cash Option for a top prize; however, I like the odds and it might be fun to try.  Also...  Since I'm young the "win for life" is very appealing. 

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

                How could you hate Lotto South? IMO the matrix is too small, but, LS is a far better game than Lose for Life (even if KY and VA offer a $520,000 cash option, which GA won't).

                  With a low payback (I calculate about 40cents return) and no roll over, I don't expect to play this anytime soon.

                    If I go through VA this summer (it's either Cumberland Gap or Quebec), I'll be playing. More precisely, I'll be playing each of my plays twice (for a $73,000/year after tax yearly payout). But I will miss Lotto South, I wish they would've implemented my SUPER Lotto South format, but Win For Life will have the same basic prize structure as SLS (3-6 wins, 2-5 + bonus wins too), so I guess they read my mind.

                        Never bought a win for life scratch off, and probably never will.  What is it, three winners out of a zillion tickets; then yoiu have to take the annuity.  That's like buying a used car on Main Street.

                        Cheers

                        I only trust myself - and that's a questionable choice

                          This win for life takes over where Lotto South ends in Va that I know of. If you win it's only 1000 a week for life.

                           

                           Good Luck,

                            A $520,000 cash option with the odds on this game is shameful.  Do NOT play WFL!
