Should there be a North Carolina-South Carolina jackpot game? Hopefully neither will ever join Lose for Life.

    My vote is yes CASH Only. However, the game shouldn't be lose for life. It's a pick six classic game where a jackpot starts at $2 million. Players match all 6 numbers will win the jackpot. It's also possible that Lose For Life states such as GA, KY, and VA, and Unlucky for Life in PA (states match 6 numbers to win money for life) should retire and join this classic game.

      Absolutely! Carolina's Classic Lotto. But the big question isn't whether or not they should have one, but rather what should the matrix be? As low as 6 out of 40? Or as much as 6 out of 54? Maybe that should be another poll.

            I just found this on SC's FAQ page.

            Q: Does the Lottery have plans to launch a State Lotto Game?
            A:
              SCEL is developing a unique game that may be available this fall that will offer millions!

            I don't know how long it's been there, but this could mean PalmLotto for the Palmetto state.

              I have feeling though that it will be a Match-6 clone. It seems like every Scientific Games state (like SC), plus every AWI state grandfathered into the SG fold, is getting one. They did say a unique game. I just hope it pays out more than 45%.

                Hopefully South Carolina is shying away from Lose for Life.

                What game are you thinking of that pays 45%? I would think it would have a 50% or higher payout.

                  Palmetto Cash 5 pays out 45.9%. It's slightly higher if you choose the PowerUp.

                    I wonder how SC PC5 is doing saleswise. Arizona still pays 45% in its Fantasy 5.

                      Well their scratches do pay better than NC. They range from 57% to 75%. NC pays 52% on all scracthers.

                        I've been saying that NC might use pari-mutuel payoffs for Pick 3 and Pick 4 (like California, Massachusetts, and New Jersey), especially if straights pay less than 50% and boxes 48%.

                          OK that's changed!  Before it says no plans because SC was a small state... HMM.  That makes me wonder if NC and SC could be working on something together.  Only time will tell.

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

                              I agree lottomike.  I heard TN is about to start a new game but I'm afraid I've not heard of a pick 6 lotto style game.  Although, I do have hope that TN does start an instate game or a game that was like "Lotto South" (RIP).  Lots of hope to go around but here as of late TN hasn't done anything!  The latest online game was cash 4 a year ago.  I'm ready for something new!!!  (Tri Star pick six sounds good to me but that's another thread at another time)

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