That's what I've been told by the lottery. This worries me a lot, because Mix and Match is also the name of Indiana's Match 6-style game. And if it's played like Match 6, that could also mean the game being replaced is Match 6.

This would be terrible, because I love Match 6. It would also be terrible for Lottery Post because we'd have CO complaining about Lucky For Life twice as often as usual. Let's all hope that Match 6 is here in January people.

    JimmySand9, I hope this game isn't computerized if they replace Match 6. I like the Match 6 or bonus style game.

      Don't worry, it will be gone in Decenber. That, and sounds like Mix and Match will be a fun, offbeat game from the kings of fun, offbeat games, the Pennsylvania Lottery. Gotta love them.

        Any links to this info? I seen nothing about on their site. As long as I win LFL before it is so called gone, I don't mind.

          The only info I have is that the order the numbers are drawn will have some bearing in this game.

            I'm guessing it will be an annuitized game with a cash option. I'm seeing a game with only 11 (or even 10) numbers, in which you have to guess the EXACT order of all the numbers. It would therefore be somewhat similar to Little 3 and Big 4.

              Sounds interesting. I like new and unique ideas, but the odds are still going to be pretty enormous even with smaller ball sets. But should be fun anyway. I will have to try it for awhile to find out. I just hope they drop the $2.00 price tag. I don't mind annuities, depending on the amount. I will only go for cash options over million, preferably $2 million.

                If it's a 10-number game it probably would be $2 a play; if it's an 11-number game, $1. I don't see how it could be different than what I've suggested.

                  Or it could be something like this (PDF File).

                    Lotto Strike is an add-on game, like Ohio's Kicker (LS can be played only with Lotto.)

                    Note that in Australia, while lottery prizes are tax-free, the price of playing does not include the agent's commission. Also, all such amounts are rounded to 5c, as Australia no longer uses 1c or 2c coins.

                      Tonight (10/2) better be the last booby prize in Unlucky for Life! I just found out PA will have another Millionaire Raffle, but still no news on Unlucky for Life's replacement, Mix & Match.

                        I been hearing that for about a year now. I think your disdain is actually making more winners which is kind of funny. Why anyone would be upset about multiple wins is beyond logic and quite idiotic. I might play the next raffle though, but I skipped the last one. Just wasn't as appealing to me. The payout was probably $750,000 after taxes or less, my mininum is a million as far as cash goes.

                         

                         

                        1 players matched 6 of 6, each receiving $3,000.00 a month for life
                        19 players matched 5 of 6, each receiving $2,000.00
                        520 players matched 4 of 6, each receiving $40.00
                        7,247 players matched 3 of 6, each receiving $3.00

                          The best thing to do is for you to save your money right now and let UNlucky for Life die. Instead of buying 10 UNlucky for Life tickets, use it to buy a raffle ticket when they become available.

                            I agree CASH Only. I rather not play UNlucky for Life. The raffle ticket and Mix and Match will be better.

                              A few things:

                               1.  CASH Only:  You should be very happy.  It's replacing Lucky For Life Lotto.

                               2.  If you look in the "Retailer Corner" or the PA Lottery website, you can see the game details, but it's gonna be a stinker.

                               3.  It's a pick 5 of 19 (That's right) game where if you match a number in the exact place,  you're good, and if you match 3 or more on the same line, you're good.  the jackpot starts at $50,000 and rolls.  Drawings will be in Mondays and Wednesdays.

                               It won't last long.

                              I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.
