The GA fantasy 5 for 5/29/08 rolled over from 106K the previous night to 118K for 5/30/08. Looks like gas prices have started to bite into ticket sales.

Normally the rollover amount is 40-60K.

Anyone seeing similiar results for other states?

    I agree with you. Usually the rollover is higher.  I will admit that I have not been playing as much as I used to.  May have to go and pick up some homemade moonshine for my car, lol

      The rollover amount appears to be a typo. It was announced on TV as 118k but the state lottery site says the rollover amount was 181K.

        I think the opposite is true, i think more people will play lottery with higher gas prices
