Good job!  My best on LfL has been $25 and it's been awhile since I won that.  Got $4 last night.  Jester

Nice job!

      Find it to be quite surprising that the annuity value of this jackpot would drop $20,000 between the last two recent drawings. Currently it's the sixth biggest jackpot for draw games in the US at $9.9 million, you would think it would generate a lot more interest than it has been.

          Wow, congrats TSC!  This seems to be a lucky game for you.  I matched 2 last night.  Sigh.

          Did they send the check for the last win already?  Curious how long it takes.

            Thank you, HoLeeKau! Yes, I did get a check but it's weird because I did win $4.00 and $2.00 from previous draws and they didn't send those wins with it.

             

            ETA: I won the prize on the 13th and the check was postmarked for the 18th so they send it pretty quickly.

              Yeah that is weird.  I understand not cutting a check for $2, but when they're sending a larger prize anyway, it seems like they'd include all your winnings.

              I'm thinking about getting another 3-month sub to this game to replace WC.  It's between this and Lucky for Life and the jp on this is high enough that I think it wins out.

                  $360K cash value.

                  I'm interested to see how quickly it increases at this low JP.

                    Okay, it didn't increase at all the first draw.

                          March 16 Jackpot: $500,000   ($360,000 Est. Cash Option)

                          It's so weird that once the jackpot is won that it takes multiple draws before it increases.

                          I went to Oregon on Saturday and picked up some tickets for their MegaBucks game that will last me until May 9th. I ended up getting the 26 advance drawing since it takes me 4 hours one way to get there. I like that I can get two plays for a dollar.

                            Good luck!  Nice that OR sells 26 draws, wish Idaho would increase ours.

                            I got a survey from Idaho Lottery just a couple days ago and I made sure to tell them how disappointed I am over losing an affordable game that usually had a life-changing JP in Wild Card.  Told them I'd never play Weekly Grand because $2 is too much for a chance at a non-life-changing JP.

                            Wish I had thought to tell them that I'm spending my money out of state on Mega Doubler, and driving to OR to play their lottery too.  Next time!

                              Four draws with no increase.

                              Next Jackpot Wed March 23: $600,000   ($490,000 Est. Cash Option)

                              So with the 5th draw it took a nice jump.  That cash value is now life-changing for me jumping $130K.  Which is weird because IIRC there were some draws it only jumped 50K when the JP was several million.
