Since Hot Lotto is expanding, perhaps that's the new game coming to PA?

PA isn't joining, I asked them a few days back.

    Don't post often here,  but I've discussed Lucky for Life with a retailer this morning, and he flat out told me LFL is going away in December, and I'm quite happy.

    PA has a way to go to match Jersey's level of consumer relations - Online games, second chance drawings, etc.

      If it is true it will end in December, it is truly a shame because 6/38 is a much more winnable game than a 6/49, 6/59 or 5/55 game.  Unless of course, PA chooses to replace it with a Keno game just like New York's.  If not, I predict it will be a game with dismal odds loaded with gimmicks to "attract" players.

        I hope you're right that Unlucky for Life won't make it to 2007. As far as PA offering a Keno game, Super 7 was just that (although it never had a cash option).

        6/38 is not "winnable" if there is no cash option.

          A month ago I e-mailed PA lottery to basically say "LFL" stinks.  Can't give criticism w/o a suggestion.  I said to bring back "Super 7" or "Wild Card" The response was that they don't go back into the past but look for new innovative games.

           

          I'll put my money on a Keno style game in early 2007.  Currently they have nothing like that in the lineup.

            The pros of the lucky for Life game:

            1: Its still a ball generated game

            2: It does carry a long term guaranteed minimum payout for the grandprize holder.

            3: Its odds are okay.

            The negative:

            1: It has a low volume of winners each play

            2: Paying 2$ for a one line ticket doesnt compare to Match6 .

            3: They have an instant 2dollar ticket that has better odds called Win for Life. (and it pays out 1k per week! for the grandprize)

            Overall I disagree though with Four4me on the fact that the residence of PA chose this. Just because there is an online poll doesnt mean it was *only* the folks of pa that participated in it. I for one do recall the PA website asking for suggestions and questionaire, but NO where did I or my associates specifically say "yes we want a 2$ game that has poor payouts or low volume of grandprize winners".

            As with politics you can take data and bend it.

              Super 7 was a keno game. I'm certainly looking forward to see what PA will replace Unlucky for Life with.
