Just curious to see if you are playing the game, and how you're doing.

I have been keeping the results updated each week at http://www.lotterypost.com/specialresults/ga-lottery-winfall-2009-06-30.asp

For those who don't know about the game, it is a raffle game that will be drawn at the end of June, but there are special drawings every week leading up to the big drawing.

What makes the weekly drawing different than any other game so far is that the winners are only drawn from the tickets purchased during that week. 

I personally think that's a neat idea, because it makes the chances of winning a weekly prize much better.  Typically, raffles with special drawings draw the winners from all ticket purchased up to that point, so as the special drawings go on from week-to-week, your chances get worse because there are more players in the draw pool.  But with Weekly WinFall, you don't get that effect.

     No.  Rather put the $$$ into Cash 3.

       Emilyg and I don't get out much .....   we pretty much stay here on the old Pick 3 Ranch ....  LOL 

       

        Really sounds like a fun game actually. I like the idea of raffles anyway. This one sounds like it's done in a way that makes it more fun.   

       

       

      The only real failure .....is the failure to try.                               

                                    Luck is a very rare thing....... Odds not so much. 

                                    Odds never change .....but probability does. 

                                                                                             Win d

        I would if the price was more like $5. At $10 I can box 20 C3's and have a more realistic chance of winning something. I like the game itself, just not the price.

          I've played twice, the 1st week and last week.  The store where I've bought them sold a winner 2 weeks ago.

            I've considered buying one just to try out a raffle game....but I'm more of a scratcher nut and I prefer to buy scratcher tickets.

            A Gold account on Lottery Post:  $4.95

            A Millionaire Jumbo Bucks scratcher:  $20

            Airfare and hotel in March 2007 to see The Price Is Right before Bob Barker retired:  $600-something

              No I haven't played. Not in my price range. I can box 10 pick 3 num and have a better chance of winning something.....If i get a big hit before June 30 I might buy one just get a chance at a prize...

                  In my opinion, it is a good idea to have the weekly drawings.  I think other states will catch on to this idea.  I think a lot of people get bored waiting on the final drawing.  The weekly drawings add fun and builds anticipation for the final drawing.

                  How are you going to win if you don't play?

                      yes buying ticket a week. havent hit anything yet. my ticket last week i was 4 people to late. but i figure for a chance to win 5.000.00 in the weekly drawing plus a chance in final drawing for the big prize not a bad deal. going to spend the 10.00 on either the c3, c4, fan5, mm56 anyway
