Decades of Dollars used to be a multi-state game but now is a Virginia only game. I just saw today that they are ending Decades and will be replacing it with Cash4Life. The last draw for Decades of Dollars is on April 30th and the new game starts May 3rd.

This makes me sad. I really enjoyed Decades and thought the odds were decent. I am sure the new game will be much less advantageous.

Wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

    Foound the page which shows the winners and came across this for one of the 2nd prize winners --

    "After consulting with his financial advisor, Devlin opted to collect his $25,000 a year for life second prize in a one-time cash lump-sum payment of $390,000 (value before taxes)."

    So if you divide 390 by 25 it is almost 16 which is 16  years of payments.  So is there a LIMIT on how many years they would pay this prize or the JACKPOT?

      The 390 is for the lump sum cash option for the 2nd tier.  If you take the lifetime payment it is fo at least 20 years.  If the winner dies before then it goes to his/her estate.

        You can spend $390K so quickly, on the single purchase of a new house.   It would have been a wiser idea to take the $25,000/year annual payment for life, because this could work out to be MORE money !!! You have guaranteed CASH coming in every year, that you can count on, no matter what. 

        The Lucky for Life Winner who chose the lump sum $390K, will have spent that money within the first year, guaranteed, b/c past history indicates that's what Lottery Winners ALWAYS do, spend the money as quickly as possible, on material possessions.
