The controversial PA "Lucky for Life" starts next week, with its $2 ticket cost and non-cash prize.

    Absolutely... I know it wouldn't affect my powerball buying at all... if that's what they are concerned with...

    the match 6 is a joke, I am sure the new one is trying to get instant players over to the online side, but I just refuse to be roped into another $2 game... If I spend $2 on my powerball ticket to get the powerplay, it's MY choice... If they put this poll on the PA lottery homepage, they would see what the players actually want...

    Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

          i tihnk PA is better off with hot lotto.  i used to take the hour-long drive to west virginia to play hot lotto.  at $1/ticket, and a guarenteed annuity jackpot of $1 million, or around $500,000 cash, it's better for PA's players.  the odds may be harder, but i think it would do better than lucky for life lotto.

          I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

            If you don't win the $10 instant prize, you are playing for 28 cents on the dollar.

                  exactly. PA should never have introduced this game in the first place.

                    We MUST continue to boycott it.

                      exactly. i don't see it lasting a year. the $2 price is bad, but the top prize barely beinr over the poevrty level is much worse.

                        I see the Lucky for Life lotto sticking around for AT LEAST a year. I don't see what you guys hold against it. Give it a chance! Buy a ticket! It's not that bad! The $2.00 price isn't all that bad since you can win INSTANTLY. Which I have won 7 out of the 12 tickets I have bought since it's on sale. I mean, already one person has won the $3,000 per month for life. I know you wouldn't complain if YOU had won the $3000 per month for life. Give it a chance, don't boycott it.

                              So because he says he's a kid, that proves he's a kid?  I thought you were a little more net-savvy than that.
