Here is my list of worst lotteries..I didn't find 10 worse lotteries, i only found 4 worse lotteries..

Number 1 comes New York lotto for it is from 1 to 59....NUmber 2 comes pennsylvania's match 6. For they give 20 dollars for matching 4 of 6...

Third place comes Maine megabucks for the 4/6 + bonus number, that particular payout pays 50 dollars and i feel that is should pay something like 500 dollars since the 5/6 + 0 pays 1,000..)

And Fourth place comes the Oklahoma pick5 for 1 dollar pays 25,000 while Virginia for 25 cents pays the same amount: 25,000...

 On the world stage i feel Italy's Superenalotto comes number 1 of been the worse lotto in the world i think is 6/90 and i don't think it pays more than Mega-million...Second places in the world stage comes New York lotto...

    pumpi76....it would probably be wise to check Marylands Multi match (a varience of the PA Match 6) They both pay out 20$ for the 4of 6. ANd the kicker is....PA's jackpots are CASH AMOUNTS starting at 500k. Marylands Multi match uses the annuity as its jackpot amount so their jackpot cash payout starts at 200k and only rolls about 10k in essence. Marylands Multi doesnt even start to payout til you hit 5 numbers on three lines! Yet PA allows 4 numbers on three lines..

    I will say that LFL in PA is lame and does need to be revised or removed. (which rumour has, it may wel be replaced)

        Both UNlucky for Life and LOSE for Life are among the country's five worst lottery numbers games, as both are annuity-only. Thank goodness UNlucky for Life will be replaced in December.

          PA's is $2 and you win $36K/year. GA's, also sold in KY and VA, is $1 and you win $52K/year. VA offers a lump sum payment of $520K in lieu of the annuity.

          As if I need to say this, CASH's post should be taken with a grain of salt. I have yet to see any evidence that Lucky for Life is being replaced. Everytime I am at a PA store with a self-service machine, I try to see if it will allow me to buy a 26 drawing (13 week) ticket. When it no longer does, I will let you know.

            rdc137 are you serious? Pa is 36K a year and what's worse they charge you 2 dollars, men I am sorry i didn't know that, other wise i would have listed it as one of the worse lottos too..Any lottery that charges you 2 dollars got to be worse in my opinion...

            And you would think that a lotto would do better in Pa than in Ga..I would need to know what's Ga and Pa population...

                The justification for the $2 cost is the "instant win" component where you might win $10 instantly. I would like to see PA drop the game and join the GA/KY/VA Win for Life game. All states involved would benefit from it.

                  Pennsylvania's population is 12 million and something..Georgia's 4 million and something...I would think that because the population is bigger in Pa more people will play there and they would have better lottos...I too, will like to see PA drop the game and join Va, KY and Ga...

                    At least Canada's "lifetime" games ALWAYS have a cash option. Most US for-life games don't; even VA offers a paltry 520k. BTW annuity prizes in Canada are taxed on the interest, not on the prize itself.

                      Why would PA join GA, KY, and VA selling LOSE for Life? PA has realized that a lifetime game doesn't work as well in an online version v scratch. Trust me, UNlucky for Life will be gone in December.

                        LOTTOMIKE, I have a few games that I think should be avoided.  I think NY Lotto is ranked 1st followed by Lose For Life (previously Lotto South), and Unlucky for Life (PA).

                          Perhaps you can help me where CASH has failed, Just6ntlc. Please provide me a website link to both Lose for Life and Unlucky for Life. I have yet to find them.

                            You won't have much longer to worry about UNlucky for Life anyway. Why don't you go directly to the PA Lottery?

                              I have, and I still haven't found a link for their UNlucky for Life game, but they do have a game called Lucky for Life. Are you sure you don't just have them mixed up?
