Has anyone here on the LP been following Virginia's bank a million game and how long it would be before someone hits one of the three main prizes of 1 mill, 500K, 250k. Does anyone have an idea how long a new start up games takes to hit?

    There's some discussion here, on the Lottery News forum.  As for how long it takes to hit -- who knows.  Could be the first draw, could take a while.

    I like the idea, though.  Must be a bummer to win and then lose so much of it to taxes.

      It only takes one ticket to win which can be brought anytime by anybody.

        Well the first draw happened on sept 2nd and there has been about 7 or 8 draws already with no clear top winner in the three main prize brackets. So it looks like it could be another month before it gets a big winner. They are most likely trying to turn a profit and pull enough money in to cushion the game for a big payout which is probably why they only let the smaller prizes being won.

          yeah RJ but for how long before they let a big payout happen? My feeling is that they are gonna let the 500k or 250k prizes go first before they lt someone hit the 1 million.

            The smaller prizes hit first because they have better odds.  Or do you think there's some guy in the state capital who decides each draw which prizes he's gonna release?

            Sheesh!

              i thought this game had the same odds for eat prize, but it depended on how much you bet on the   game as to what the multile you would gets, ie, 50c a game = 250k, $1 a game $500k  etc.  I would say the lower prizes get won because there may be more entries,  ie you can twice as many games  for  the same money spent. But that bank a full $1 mill is a big attraction

              2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

              keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297
