Lotto South is back in Georgia, in name only, on a $3 scratch-off. Now, I put this in the general board as this is an interesting development. They are putting the name of a defunct on-line game onto a scratch-off game. Is this some attempt to keep the trademark from going into the public domain (as will happen if you don't use your trademark after a certain time frame)? Or is this a sign of things to come? What do you think?

    I don't know but years ago Michigan had a $1 scratch-off ticket called "Lotto" that played like the 6/xx games.

      Very interesting!  They have even used the original Lotto South logo.  It could be what you mentioned, but it could also be that it is a well-developed brand that they are hoping will be easily recognized by the public, helping the game's popularity.  Lottery fans tend to have a bit of nostalgia for games of old.  Myself, I still kinda miss Lotzee in NJ.
