To me I wouldn't mind another kind of pick 3 or even pick 2 like ive seen in some states.....maybe not a HUGE payout but Im just not digging Decades of Dollars or Win for Life....they just seem impossible to hit and the payout isn't even close to how the odds are. So not asking for a Huge payout game just maybe a game Like SUMS or Pick 2 or some kind of added bonus to the pick 3 game ...now the pick 3 Boost is good but you have no control over the bonus numbers so0o ....idk just a random Thought/Question!

You Can't WIN ......if You DON'T Play !~!

      They are getting rid of Win for Life and replacing it with a $2 game called Moneyball.

      Here’s how the game works: You select five numbers out of 35 numbered balls. The Lottery will draw five balls out of 36. That’s 35 numbered balls plus one Gold Million Dollar Money Ball. If the Gold Million Dollar Money Ball is one of the five balls drawn, an additional numbered ball is drawn and the top prize in that drawing immediately increases from $100,000 to $1 million.

      Players can win $2, $10, $100, $100,000 or $1 million, depending on how many numbers they match. The odds of winning the $1 million prize are 1 in 2,337,350.

      $1,000,000 Money Ball replaces Win for Life, which will conclude a very successful eight-year run with the September 13 drawing. The Win for Life game created 44 lifetime-winners ($1,000 per week for the rest of the winner’s life) in Virginia while generating an estimated $95 million for Virginia’s K-12 public schools. 

      They have more info on the website.

            I am disappointed to hear that Win for life in nearing the end of its life (no pun intended....lol). This is a great game and I always won the most money here...I got 3 plus the bonus ball (the one you cannot pick) and won $30 each several times and I always buy 2 tickets with the same numbers.

            First, the other states got out of Win for life then VA bragged on its website that VA had its own game now.  Now, weeks later, they plan to eliminate it.  I love Decades of Dollars also. The Virginia Lottery's new game will cost $2.00 vs $1.00 now to try to win a million.

              On wikipedia there is a gossip that Virginia is soon going to join NY & NJ and offer Cash4Life. These multistate games have horrible payouts.

              That money's gone fo ever

                Cash 4 life looks similar to Decades of Dollars. I bet they will dump decades next. As Lucy said..."WWAHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!"

                  How about the jp payout? is it same amount or higher? I think Cah4Life jp is $7M lumpsum

                    Decades is $4 million if you take the lump sum.

                      Saw Flyer on the VA lottery store about the new game coming middle of September ...guess we'll have to see how it goes...would still love a little easier (better odds) game rather than picking 5-6 numbers for millions of dollars (which is HIGHLY unlikely).

                        I won $600 a few years ago with Win for Life. The most I've ever won on any game.

                          I always play WFL when i drive through Va and usually hit a few $$ every time. Replacing this with a $2 game that's not that great is a big mistake.
