I have issues with Georgia Five. Specifically, their payout scheme is a joke. Their top prize is $10,000 (odds: 1 in 100,000), but I can spend one dollar more, buy two Pick-4 tickets with the same number, win the same amount, but have much better odds (1 in 10,000). Furthermore, if you match the first four numbers, you win only $225 (odds: 1 in 5,556). I can go buy a Pick-3 ticket and win more than twice as much ($500) with much better odds (1 in 1000).
The only thing stopping me from saying that I absolutely, positively want this game to go away is that the winning number could be a date with a year.
Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.
In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!
