Bring back Lotto Georgia 6/46 for Satruday night drawings only with cash option available, fill in Wed with a special weekly bonus drawing of some sort for Fantasy 5 without changing its matrix higher, also add front and back pairs to Cash 3 and 4.

Good luck to everyone!

    Yes NodI am grateful to even have a legal lottery.  I live in a state that just recently passed a lottery and had a helluva time getting it started.  It took 20 years of fighting.  It was a well talked about and ridiculed event.  I have no complaints because we only have scratch offs now.  The payouts are low but it's better than having zero. 

    My only concern is if we will have pick 3 and 4 games.  So I guess you can say we are brow beaten.  How's that for wanting to change something.

     

     

    Took us awhile to go from scratchoffs to Cash 3 onward.  They have to build up revenues for payouts before they can implement those games.  Congratulations on getting the lottery passed and going!!

    Good luck to everyone!

      I would want the draw machines and drawings taken away from the state lottery people and have neutral parties perform the drawings (Draws), the draw machines and drawings should be as far away from the lottery people as possible they should not be in the same building in which the state lottery is, but very far away from them, maybe in another city and or state and lottery people should not be allowed to be there where the drawings would be conducted, not at any time.

      Drawings should be completely separated and away from the state lottery people, they should not be done by anybody from the government, not at all, but by a special non profit and uninterested public agency, supervised mostly by the general public and very little if at all from anybody from the government.

      That is what I really want, completely SECURE and FAIR drawings or draws.

      No more Indiana's, Florida's, Texas' or anybody elses B.S.

      Are REAL FAIR drawings too much to ask for?

        Get a new CEO of the Georgia lottery.
        And you can't repeat a number within the same month.

        Let's play fair Georgia.

            Ms DeFrancisco used to run my corrupt NY Lottery. She seems to be pro-annuity (eg Lose for Life) and anti-player.

              I would add my name to the winner list.  That would only make it better for me, but then everyone who buys a ticket has a chance to do the same.

              I Agree!Wink

                I have a feeling she may have rotated draw-ballset selection order from what it has been being which would mix up things a bit.  She also may have retired some ballsets, added a few more to rotation which serves to scramble things in the minds of players.  However, that sometimes backfires on the lottery when there are lots of winners in Cash 3 and 4.  Cool

                She has has many more promos for players than we ever had before, changed the Fantasy 5 payout for the better so in my opinion is not anti-player.  Remains to be seen how soon it will be before Win For Life loses player interest here because there have been lots of winners in Georgia.   

                She also seems to run things more transparently so that makes me sleep better at night. 

                Good luck to everyone!

                  AFAIK Lose for Life has had only ONE booby prize in its first month-and-a-half (KY.) In addition to GA not offering a cash option, there is no jackpot.

                    News just said Georgia Lottery sales are up, so our governor is going to have to re-think restrictions he placed on Hope Scholarship in 2003 when they were going down.  That was before Ms. De Francisco came here. 

                    Ms. DeFrancisco has done a great many things to improve the bottom line performance of our lottery.  Again, I believe your objections to the NY lottery originate with the NY governmental makeup and its controls over the lottery.

                    I personally am not sold on WFL and am only playing one ticket per draw win or lose.   

                    Good luck to everyone!
