Decades of Dollars to replace Win for Life in Southern States
ATLANTA, GA – Virginia, Georgia and Kentucky Lotteries are set to get rid of the multi-state draw game Win For Life for a brand new twice weekly draw called Decades of Dollars. The change in the game names indicates that winners will only be paid for decades as opposed to their whole lives.
Arkansas Lottery will also be joining the multi-state game,meaning that people from all four states will be competing for prizes twice per week.
The first drawing for the Decades of Dollars lottery will be held on Thursday, Feb. 3rd while the last Win For Life draw will take place on January 29th. Decades of Dollars drawings will take place on Mondays and Thursdays each week from then on.
Tickets for Decades of Dollars draws will be priced at $2 USD and players will be able to choose six numbers between one and 47. Players can also choose to play a “quick pick”, meaning a computer will randomly choose numbers for the person.
If a player matches all six numbers, a jackpot of $250,000 will be paid every year up to 30 years or a lump sum of $4 million given all at once.
