Win For Life replaced Lotto South which ended in 2006. Win For Life is horrible because no cash option and they should save the $1000 a week for life game for scratchers. I think Lotto South should be brought back the 6/49 game with jackpot starting at $2,000,000 just like before.

States like VA, NC, SC, GA, KY, TN could all benefit from this.

    I agree, anything would be better than Win for Life.

      I sorta like W4L even though the most i ever won was 30$ ....i mean who couldnt use 104K (Gross) extra a year for the rest of their LIFE......they already have a W4L scratcher which i would love to find one of those last 2 top (life) prizes..... that way i know i would always have income coming in no matter what...... i never got to play lotto south which i think i just turned 19 in 06 at the time or around the time it ended and i wasnt into the lottery like i am now.....

            Monday & Thursday. LOL

            Win For Life would be better if you could take a cash option of something reasonable.

                They guarantee a 10yr payout so $52,000 x 10=$520,000 so I say double it...$1,040,000.

                I think it is fair since you would only see half after taxes anyway. LOL

                $1,000,000

                      I love the concept of regional jackpot games like Lotto South.  I hope they bring it back.

                        Should they bring back Lotto South, yes.

                        Will they bring back Lotto South, no.

                        Players are shying away from pick-6 games because a) jackpot chasers are playing PB and MM, and b) because odds players are playing and generally prefer pick 3s, 4s, and sometimes, pick 5s. That puts games like Lotto South and those like it in a comparatively small niche, those looking for a sort of middle ground between pick-5s and the mega jackpot games, and in a lot of cases, lottery directors are disinterested in serving that niche, even if other states are sweetening the pot. So we'll be seeing Win For Life for a while yet. And if they do get rid of WfL, don't expect it to be replaced with something like Lotto South, that is if they even replace it with anything.

                          i agree with jimmy

                          plus all the state lottos, are in the middle of drawing up a even bigger game, not to replace, but  to go along side mm and pb,

                          only reports we had of it suggest 5 bucks per ticket, insane odds we never seen before,

                          so why would they do a other lotto south if they got even a better seller maybe down the roll,

                            I'd love to see a regional lotto based on the matrix of retired Lotto Georgia, 6/46 which was a lot of fun to play.

                            Good luck to everyone!

                              We played Lotto South when Kentucky had it. Never won much, but it was fun playing it.

                              If it was to comeback, would it be competing with Powerball and Mega Millions since now both are available in many states?

                              Illinois has a Win for Life $2 scratcher, it's been part of the Illinois lottery for a long time now as far as scrathcers go.

                              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
