We all have sharply divided opinions on the new GA-KY-VA Lose for Life. But what has been forgotten is that when Lotto South ended, the three states decided to double the lower tier prizes for the final drawing (if no jackpot winner) instead of emptying out the entire first-prize pool. Does anyone know if GA, KY, and/or VA ever gave that money back to the players?

    Ky Lottery Corp. had a special promotion to return remaining Lotto South funds to players. For each Win For Life ticket a player bought, they received an entry form to be entered into several prizes. I think they had like 10 prizes of $52,000 each and several small prizes. It was not to long after WFL came out that they did this.

      When Ohio ended SuperLottoPlus,I play 20 lines and matched 3 three times, since there wasn't a jackpot winner, the jackpot money was shared with all the winners and I got $78, I should have played more lines.  I played Lot'O Play that one time so if Lot'O Play has a big jackpot when they get rid of it, I plan to play it again.

        The ENTIRE jackpot pool for the final LS drawing should have been rolled down to the lower prizes. Pure and simple.

          I think Lotto South should have taken out all of the money prior to Win For Life game.

            All GA, KY, and VA had to do is look at the Massachusetts Ca$h WinFall game. Every time the jackpot reaches $2 million, it's like the game is being discontinued, except the jackpot is reset at $500,000. The jackpot money is paid through the lower tiers if there is no 6/6 winner.
