        The reason Lucky Lines is being discontinued on May 14th is because it was not popular enough (the reason most games are dropped or replaced), bringing in "only" $70 million since introduction.

        The question remaining is if the current Florida Lottery game Mega Money will end sometime this year after Mega Millions starts in May. Mega Money is one of the lower revenue generators for Florida.

          Lucky lines was impossible to win. Hardly ever any big winners.

            Mega money will probably end due to having Fantasy 5, powerball and now Mega Millions

             

            The highest win i saw was $50 on a $5 lucky lines, i thought the game was OK just not too popular

                  I played it once when it started and I did not like it. I never see anyone playing it either. This the press release:

                   

                  FLORIDA LOTTERY TO DISCONTINUE LUCKY LINES™

                  TALLAHASSEE - The Florida Lottery announced today that LUCKY LINES™, an instant-win terminal game, will be discontinued on Tuesday, May 14, 2013. The last day for players to redeem winning LUCKY LINES tickets is November 10, 2013.

                  LUCKY LINES went on sale in late 2010 and has generated more than $70.8 million in sales and $44.8 million in prizes. The game also generated more than $18.9 million for Florida's Educational Enhancement Trust Fund.

                  "The Florida Lottery has enjoyed having LUCKY LINES as part of our portfolio of games," said Lottery Secretary Cynthia O'Connell. "We are focusing on the future, introducing innovative and exciting games to new and existing players."

                  The Florida Lottery offers a diverse product mix consisting of seven terminal games and approximately 60 Scratch-Off games at any given time through vending machines or counter displays at more than 13,000 retailers statewide. MEGA MILLIONS will be added in May, replacing LUCKY LINES as the Lottery's seventh terminal game.
