We know GA won't offer a cash option. The KY and VA websites make no mention of it either AFAIK. Were the media stories of a $520,000 cash option false?

    No, I think the Cash option is true for KY and VA. The media stories are also true. By the way, what's the current jackpot for Lotto South with 2 draws remaining? I'm disappointed that GA isn't going to include a cash option.

      There's no excuse for ANY of the three states to not offer a cash option. Imagine if one of the Mega Millions states did not allow a jackpot winner to collect in lump sum.

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

          GA won't even offer a cash option. How can a multi-state game have a cash option in two states and be annuity-only in the third?

            The www.valottery.com site mentions the $520,000 cash option. I don't see anything yet on www.kylottery.com. GA will not be offering a cash option.

              I'm glad nobody won the top prize in the first drawing. There will be other drawings without a top prize winner.

                After six drawings, there still has yet to be a lifetime loser. Keep the streak going until the three states scrap the game!

                  The past two drawings have had neither a booby prize or second prize winner. This game is a loser!

                    If VA has a cash option, then the jerk who hit last night (4/26) BETTER choose cash. Even though a 520k cash option for a $1000-a-week booby prize is a ripoff.

                      Jerk? Now you've gone too far. Playing an annuity game does not make someone a bad person.

                        In Lose for Life, if they take annunity and get $1000 a week, how many years do they get for winning the jackpot?

                          GA does not have a cash option. KY almost certainly doesn't. The VA website no longer mentions the cash option.

                          Anybody who hits Lose for Life should be sent to jail-no passing GO, no collecting $200 LOL
