Everyone,

No one won the Georgia Fantasy 5 again last night so over $1,376,000.00 rolled over.  The estimated jackpot for tonight is over $1,800,000.00!!!!!!

I know that Florida's Fantasy 5 has had a few jackpots to pass the millon dollar mark, but in the history of Pick 5, does anyone know if any state has had a jackpot this high before?

Is this a United States record for Pick 5?

Just imagine if it rolls again tonight.

Buy those tickets.....

 

Thanks,

Lottery Analyst

    Lottery Analyst,

    Do you know what the current  expected value for this game is? By current, I mean, at this jackpot and sales level.

    Thanks,
    Jake

      Hi Jake,

      Sorry I don't.  All I know is the estimated jackpot according to what the lottery told the vendor I purchase tickets from.  If you have time you might want to check out the Georgia Lottery website at www.galottery.com  There might be some info there.

      Thanks,

      LA

                I have played only Georgia and Florida pick 5.  I really liked Florida's 5 of 26 before they changed it back to 5 of 39.  One thing I love about Florida that Georgia does not have is if you get 2 of 5 in Florida you win a free ticket.  Heck, I get 2 of the 5 numbers all the time. 

                Besides that, I love Georgia's Fantasy 5.  Heck, who would not love a chance at $1.8 million.  We are purchasing 60 tickets with the lottery pool I play in.  We should win something with 60 tickets.

                Best of luck to everyone tonight.  Hopefully a Lottery Post member will win tonight.

                Thanks,

                John

                  Wow! A Ga. Fantasy 5 pot of 1.8 million.

                  On average the Pennsylvania Cash 5 game rolls over the magical million dollar mark two or three times a year.

                  On Sept 7, 1995 the largest Pa Cash 5 jackpot reached $1,590,354 shared by six winning tickets.

                  All you Geogia folks, Good Luck,

                  Play responsibly and have fun,  Chas

                    NJ also rolls over the Pick 5 game.  The current jackpot is $180,000, although in Feb. it got up to $1.4 million.

                    NJ has a great lottery, but its main weakness is the pari-mutuel payouts on Pick 3 & Pick 4.  Georgia has it beat hand-down there.

                     

                    Check the State Lottery Report Card
                    What grade did your lottery earn?

                      LA, I went to the site to check out the odds and jackpot. They do not indicate on the site that the jackpot is $1.8 million. Where did get this figure? The site says the rollover is $1.37 million.

                      Thanks,
                      Jake

                        Hi Jake,

                        Like I said in my previous post, "All I know is the estimated jackpot according to what the lottery told the vendor I purchase tickets from."  The jackpot grew from roughly $1,066,896.00 on Wednesday night to $1,376,505.00 to Thursday night.  The jackpot grew roughly by $309,609.00 last night and they expect it to grow by at least $400,000.00 more tonight since it is Friday night and traditionally more people buy tickets on Friday night, and since this is a record jackpot, they expect even more people to buy tickets.

                        Again this is an estimate but $1,376,505.00 + $400,000.00 = $1,776,505.00 but I expect it to go over $1.8 Million.

                        Thanks,

                        LA

                              Hopefully Ms Francesco won't be tempted to annuitize the Fantasy 5 game, like FL recently did with  Mega Money.
