    I read somewhere (when they were making powerball and mega millions available for all states) that they were considering a "regional" jackpot game.  I believe the statement came from Tennessee but I can't remember exactly where I read it.  There were a lot of articles being released from PB and MM along with press releases from individual states at the time so it is likely lost somewhere in the cyberspace archive.  I will try and find it.  I remember it because I got a little excited.  (More so than knowing I could play both MM and PB in the same state.)

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

      I found it!!!  Here it is.  I knew I saw it somewhere.  Odds are pretty slim; however, there is a chance.

      Tennessee

      Current affiliation:  Powerball
      Will cross-sell:  Yes
      Responded to Lottery Post:  No

      From local media reports:

      The Tennessee Lottery will start selling tickets to the multi-stateMega Millions game early next year and eliminate the in-state LottoPlus game.

      Adding Mega Millions, which is similar to Powerball, is expected toboost profits for education by $10 million to $15 million over 12months.  If implemented in early 2010, it likely will raise about$6 million for education before this fiscal year ends, said Andy Davis,the lottery's chief financial and information systems officer.

      Doing away with Lotto Plus was a matter of logistics since winningnumbers for Lotto Plus, one of the lottery's newer instate jackpotgames, are drawn on Tuesday and Fridays, the same nights as MegaMillions, Tennessee Lottery CEO Rebbecca Hargrove said.  Also, LottoPlus turned out just $4.8 million in profits for education last year,far less than what Mega Millions is expected to generate, she said.

      In addition to improving profits, cross-selling games could make iteasier for national retail chains that want to sell lottery tickets andcould be a step toward a national lottery game, which is targeted for2012, Hargrove said.

      Had the lottery groups decided not to proceed with dual sales,Tennessee and five other Southern states were primed to launch LottoSouth, a regional jackpot game, which could still launch at a latertime, Hargrove said.  Discussions about Lotto South are being conductedwith North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Virginia and Kentucky.

       

      My suggestion...  Send those five states an email and voice your support.  It hasn't worked in the past but it doesn't hurt to try.  Be sure to mention odds and how you would like a multimillion dollar jackpot every night of the week.

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

          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.

            My vote is no because most Lotto South states have Mega Millions and Powerball.
