    I assume you mean the Win for Life game???

     If so, I had ok luck. Spent $4 on 4 numbers (2 of mine and 2 quickpick, won on my 2) and won $4 from it. The free ticket didn't give me anything.

     As for the annuity opiion, I personally think I am going to get kinda old (hell doesn't want me and heaven can't take me). In believing in such, having a weekly (quarterly actually) check coming in and knowing that there is no more Social Security when I retire looks ruther attractive to me. Sorry, but if I win this year and live another 60 years, that's gonna be a heck of a lot more then a minor $750,000. Perhaps I am somewhat short sighted, but that is how I view it.

      GA _does_not_ have a cash option. If you hit you're stuck with quarterly payments. The $750,000 applies to WA Lucky for Life scratch only. The Virginia cash option is only $520,000.

      DO NOT play Lose for Life!

              I would rather die from cat scratch fever than receive annuity payments! I bet Ted Nugent would agree.

                  I didn't win anything in the first Win for Life drawing, but it's a very good game with some great features. I like the game and I'll continue to play. The overall odds of winning any prize are 1 in 21, so I might start to get a little impatient if I don't win something in the next few draws. LOL

                  I agree with you, Ms emilyg. Money talks, and BS walks. Congratulations to you on your winnings in the inaugural Win for Life drawing! Thumbs Up I hope to join you in the winners' circle soon.

                  Best of luck to all Win for Life players,

                  aye'

                    I haven't played it yet, but I'll be making a border run for tickets in a few weeks, and will probably try it out for a draw or two. I'll still put most of my lottery budget into Fantasy 5, though.

                    I wish they'd bring Lotto Georgia back!

                      I am sure cash would also like a "lump" on the head. Bash LOL

                        I jumped in on Sat drawing and hit 3 of 6.

                        A whopping $2 payout. The return for 3 of 6 is too low.

                        They should review this and adjust, like GA did on the Fantasy 5.
