  1. Lottery. Ha. No way. It started to fund schools… umm is money even going there? The ga lottery is a mob event it seems. Loose loose loose. I’ve been playing for years and it has gotten worse (the payouts). The diggi games are crooked as it comes. You’ll have better luck at ANY casino. Do yourself a favor and use the money you’re going to give to the state and buy yourself a beer and a comic book. You’ll get more enjoyment. Until the ga lottery is actually run by HONEST people (never going to happen) just save your potential losses. Trust us on this one!

  2. Just LOL at GA lotto online. Every single thing is rigged there. The diggi games are 100% rigged and the nerds that created them need to be dragged out back and shot in the head. Keno is also a joke. Never trust anything digital. But I got the last laugh! Because I filed a good old trusty CHARGEBACK with my bank!!!

    00
  3. Played in other states and felt as though I was winning occasionally due to the random draw of the numbers. But here is GA, play daily and seemed as if numbers are being manipulated instead of random selections. Saw prizes drop in KENO, time between plays drop from 4 min to 3 min, showing of useless info on screens instead of the last numbers drawn, all to increase the odds for the house. Hope that soon more people will see this and stop playing of get an honest audit and investigation of lottery practices.

  4. Keno is rigged by the random number generator to kick out numbers you play

    00
  5. I spend a little each week and I enjoy the chance of winning. If you sink a chunk of money into the lottery then cry because you did not win; well I can only suppose that math was not your strongest subject.

    00
  6. Waste of money! I’ve played for years and never seen a big win. Now since the coronavirus has come about, it seems winning is much more difficult than before. I highly suggest quit playing until they start giving out more wins!

    00
  7. I am an avid lottery player and I agree with most people on this site. I have sunk a lot of money in the Georgia lottery and not much of a payout I quit buying scratchers for this reason

    00
  8. Not impressed. Did not like the geo locator which is difficult to remove from your computer. Winning is almost impossible.

    00
  9. I used to win at least enough to continue riding the hope wave when it came to tickets. They have shut down any decent chance at winning in the last year or so. Ticket after ticket are losers. No matter how many you get in a roll. I’ve never seen it this bad, ever. I got hundreds of losers from the last few months alone. Always same thing. Loser after loser. Then when you hit some special symbol, or a jumbo on a 20 or 25 dollar ticket it pays you the value of the ticket. It’s good awful. They’re crooks plain and simple. They are robbing the people.

    00
  10. Simply put, just not enough payouts. Can’t wait till ATL gets a casino. Their revenue is insane, they can’t even put unclaimed prizes back in the players pockets with more non jackpot wins, it’s ridiculous. How do you expect to attract new players when you’re not putting out enough non jackpot winners, but you’re spending money on advertising, billboards, radio, and TV, it’s everywhere. Store owners I talk to MAY get a 500 dollar winner out of every 10 rolls, and that’s just 20 and 30 dollar ticket rolls. Other than that, they may get a 1000 dollar winner or 2500 winner once to four times a year. Compared to what they’re selling, this is pathetic, and the GA lottery is pathetic. They will get put out of business when casinos come to GA, and I hope they do. Tax money can fund hope scholarship, easy.

  11. There are no winnings at all. Please stop playing any of their scatch offs. It is a scam. I played a $30 ticket roll from #2 to #9, spending a total of $180 only to win one free ticket. The same thing is happening to so many other players in every game. This lottery system is a huge scam. Please invest your money elsewhere. Try the stock market or fundrise or donate it to your relatives. Avoid this rigged con-game!

    00
    • This is very true I have played stupidly multiple rolls of games brought from several different locations from Publix, liquor store, and gas station and the most I got was 5 free tickets, and an instant 50 dollar win! I’m talking 180 a pop for a roll and this is the payout! I’ve quit for sure lesson learned.

      00
  12. That’s the most racist thing EVER! Go to the Ga lottery winner circle and look at the pictures there are almost as many black winners paid in Jackpots to Blacks are there is to Whites. Lottery is a Gamble every time. It doesn’t know your skin color when you buy a ticket!!! Get real.

    00
  13. This has gone on long enough. GL is rigged yet we still play but seeing strings on balls that broker lose. I have pic. Rigged repeats, not giving just taking from Ga, nothing on scratch off but all these other states getting trips and quads. What ever it takes to get the lottery voted out and ppl stop playing I along with others will do. We know it’s gambling and our choice but come on let us win something. I’m gathering all my proof such as different numbers on same draw, calling out different numbers and showing another, stopping balls from rolling and say technical difficulty. It’s just crazy and not fair. What is the problem that GA can’t win big? tonight balls did not even spin they were already drawn. Is that fair no because you all just robbing us. People are pissed and I can’t blame them I have been playing since it started and games were ran right and people were winning but then GL saw fit to start rigging and everything else. Enough things gonna change. You all getting big checks and bonus so it’s time we stand.

  14. I am going to stop playing, the payout is very small compared to how much I’ve spent. I’d be better off going to the casino in Alabama once a month.

    00
    • These days the now post the total weekly payouts in each store lottery screen. I noticed that in three stores closer to me the payouts were very dismal. Payouts of $2345, $3412 and $13500 per week for all lottery plays. Compare this to the total weekly amount spent by the players.
      I see players spending $40, $20, $300 each day on gambling. I asked the store owner about the total receipts. He noted that is is about $20,000 per week on average.

      So Galottery pays out $2345 for revenue of $20,000. I think it is a con-game

      00
  15. Georgia lottery has multiple games& for all Georgians who play faithfully “does not get wins” it’s enough money coming in for all numbers to fall& satisfy all players” years to come& several numbers never fall period “The game is not fair”

    00
  16. I have been quiet for a while on the cash3&4 numbers but this is really insane how you keep putting the same number over and over! Then it seems as though you keep avoid letting some numbers from falling, I told before that you have so much integrity but don’t believe any of it, the balls are definitely being manipulated and somehow I will have y’all investigated!!!

    00
    • people playing doubles daily just like regular number if you cannot go 12 to 15 drawers without a double that is just absolutely cheating and it’s sad I used to love to play doubles because Georgia lottery drop them but never again will I buy doubles especially after seeing them do this if they go one more draw somebody needs to wait them out of there

      00
  17. Tried Diggi, was able to play for awhile but now all I get is “We are currently unable to process your request. Please try again later. If the problem persists, please contact the Player Hotline” no matter what game I try. I’ve refreshed, etc. You can’t remove the money you deposited, only winnings. I wish I had seen this site before I donated to the wealthy of Atlanta. Never win in any other Georgia lottery games either.

    00
  18. Too many people play the lottery. They buy over 20 tickets for one game. Only a few win. Lottery is being sued for fraud having lottery workers rigging games. Who is getting the money for the lawsuits??? I filed and got nothing, the lawsuits are scams.

    00
  19. Ga isn’t winning in major online lotto anymore. I wonder why not?

    00
  20. I have been playing cash3, cash 4 for the past 20+ years. I used to win every once in a while. Now lately within the past 4 years, not so much at all. They have certainly changed the games so that “players” loose more often while the state lotteries are winning massive amounts daily.

    00
    • I have never seen any lottery corporation try to go over 8 to 10 draws maybe 12 without dropping a double

      00
  21. Their website is rigged I play and win $5 on $5 digga game no big winners I try for free Everyday $500 worth if there’s a big winner on the next ticket the game glitches out and re-shuffles the tickets. They need to be investigated for this and refund all who have played in hopes of winning.

    00
  22. So who’s investigating the lottery officials?? Follow the money guys… That’s why we’re not winning.. The whole system is rigged..

    00
  23. Throwing The Same Numbers Over It’s Not Playing Fair Needs To Get Rid Of The Lady That’s In Over The Lottery.

    00
  24. The former Florida lottery commissioner was run out of Florida and sent to Georiga after giving family and friends the winning numbers. Now another GA Commissioner is doing the same. I’ve lived in GA many years during 1990 thru 2011 and then back in 2015-2017. I can hit numbers in several other states I’ve lived in but Georgia is greedy, you NEVER hear of anyone winning big there or in Florida, I know because my family lives there. For example… I played 1124 from 2015-2017 and it’s 2019 and it still has not come. Cheaters. I would stop playing in both Florida and Georgia if I were the residence.

    00
  25. I play every day. Never win much at all. I play video games in stores a lot. Lottery took over these games. I don’t understand why they want to pay your winnings in cash. U can purchase tickets with your winnings but I have won 200.00 an purchased scratchoffs with winnings an won nothing on scratchoffs. That’s ripp off. Lottery is getting down on poor folks. They play in Hope’s of winning. An then u have these odds against u.

    00
  26. Their online Diggi games is absolutely the worse play in any state.
    Do not play as it is rigged with same amount bet wins to qualify for their advertised payout.
    It surely is built around compulsive gamblers as no sane person would play

    00
  27. Lived in Florida. Always won something of value. Now in Georgia and I’m lucky if I get a free ticket… Just went to Florida on vacation and won more in a day than I’ve spent and lost in Georgia in over a year. Georgia scratch offs are a scam.

    00
  28. I’ve played cash 3 for 25 years an average of 2 or 3 draws a week and NEVER hit straight which odds are 1 out 1,000. I’ve played over 4,000 draws and should have hit 4 times but not once. Not to mention the odds on box are 1 out of 166 for three different numbers and I hit consistently 1 out of 700 to 800 draws. Watch the draws carefully. They no longer show balls spinning but already in slot. The history on the galottery site only lets you go back 2 months now so that you don’t figure out that numbers aren’t drawing the way they should. Regular customer of my use to work for galottery says balls different size by fraction of millimeter so that they only fit in hole when drawn. That’s why they don’t allow you to buy cash 3, 4, or other 15 minutes before draw so that they can look at sales and change out balls.

    00
  29. I believe GA is a scam. The Fantasy 5 winners always come from towns or counties with very low populations which makes it hard to believe that a population with 2,500 people or less would have winners more frequently than a larger populated city like Atlanta that would definitely have more people playing the game

    00
  30. Stop playing it. I have played it for 19 yrs and the most I have won is $2500.
    Assume that I have spent $500 each month on average. This means I have given away $500 ×12 = $6000 each year. For about 20 yrs, I have given away $120,000

    So my friends to lose in that streak is not an accident. GA lottery is a scam. Play it at your own risk

    00
  31. I have been playing all the games for several years with thousands spent, watching closely the numbers, I feel that there is manipulation of the number drawings, to fit what numbers they want, therefore maximizing their profits. It is sad for many people who play and trust that the lottery is fair. I hope that all will be deeply investigated for legitimacy!!

    00
  32. It has been PROVEN that the Georgia Lottery is a scam! It is the ONLY lottery in the United States to turn RECORD profits each year. As long as the people in this state are ignorant enough to purchase these tickets nothing will change.

    00
  33. The Georgia lottery Keno game is a big rip off. I have been playing online for at least a year now, and it is true that they monitor the numbers and make sure yours does not come out. Lately the machine is not even letting you see the numbers you picked out and even if you win a few dollars, your payouts don’t come till hours or days later. I have tried calling them on several occasions, only get the runaround. I am going to delete my account and I’ll only buy tickets at the store. The online account is terrible.

    00
  34. I’ve been buying scratch off tickets for many years of Ga lottery tickets there used to be winners not always big but around 50 to 100 now your lucky to get a ticket winner I just played around 8 20.00 tickets and didn’t even get a ticket winner I played
    to the end of the roll Ga lottery need to put at some winners in there I just wonder how they are getting away with ripping us off so bad and I’ve heard it’s all about fun well let us have a little at least once and a while.

    00
  35. I scratched off a $1000.00 winner this past Saturday night. Had the cashier try to scan and he tore the bottom of the ticket, to the right of the barcode. Didn’t think nothing of it. Took to Atlanta today and was denied payment on it. Said there would need to be an investigation on it. That’s bullshit. I’m sure if I would’ve been black, I would’ve gotten paid. I’d stay away from even playing this shit anymore.

    00
  36. Georgia Lottery is one of the biggest rip-offs his I bought thousands of books of tickets and not one gave me $500 and also Keno has become the point where no matter what you play that machine locks the number that is you playing and I played up to $1,000 at one time and Everyone by $20 if that so I think that Georgia Lottery is it something that it’s basically a rip-off and they’d only ones making money and when they change these games and these computers registered special Keno, you can barely get two numbers that’s how bad is done in this game you can spend thousands of dollars to get nothing it doesn’t pay off stairway from Keno

    00
  37. Well, the 25th Anniversary 2nd Chance Giveaway seems to be a possible scam. I’ve been playing the whole 9 months and when each monthly drawing ends you can check the winners by entering your city or your name. When I entered my name several people with the same name were listed (not mine of course) winning one amount or another. Then I noticed a name I had seen before. Checking back, I found the same name from the same city had won every month except Nov. Checking further, I found several other names from the same hometown that won multiple times (7-8 out of 9). I had played into the thousands of entries over these 9 months and never even won 25.00. Something isn’t right, how can the same people win every month. Or are they real people?

    00
  38. Poor payout for past few months

    00
  39. I’ve been playing scratch offs at quick trip and other stations and never win it’s like they set it up to make money but no major payouts. I will stop playing and warn others just scratch off 4 tickets all losers but of course big payout but not a winner on any of them. Done.

    00
  40. I have purchased hundreds of scratch offs since Georgia Lottery has begun and now I have found that they don’t put winners on scratch-offs that much anymore. It is hard to even get a free ticket now. Georgia Lottery is nothing but a rip off on scratch-offs now because they pocket all the money and don’t pay out. If you are coming through Georgia don’t buy your scratch offs in Georgia… Wait until you get until another state and then buy your scratch offs and maybe you will win something.

    00
    • I can honestly say that I have never in my life felt so bull crapped as the Georgia lottery is the only one making any money out of right or nine five dollar scratch offs not even a ticket…it’s like that on several tickets..ratio doesn’t even mean nothing anymore

      00
    • Well I live in Minnesota and we have never had a mega millionaire once here let alone 1 Powerball jackpot winner! This lottery is a waste of money we Minnesotans pay for everyone else’s jackpot winner ? to Georgia lotteries

      00
  41. My husband bought 1 Mega Million and 1 Power Ball yesterday evening in Atlanta. Having read 1 blog, I now know that the exact same thing happened to him. 3 tickets printed out and he thought he saw the cashier slip one into his pants pocket, he didn’t know at the time there was a bogo. These bogo’s need to be done differently somehow. Just exactly how many cashiers and store owners are doing this AND have any of them won?!

    00
  42. I recently won a prize on a game playing the smallest amount allowed to play but no complaints here. The claim process was handled in the Macon Ga Office and everything went quickly and smoothly. Wish I had gotten the lady’s name but she was nice and congratulated me. Now I just wish my cash 3 and cash 4 numbers would fall. I have been playing them religiously for about 6 months now every draw with no luck. Maybe they will soon.

    00
    • I just won a prize today playing the Diggi Game. I won 30 bucks first try on a dollar and then quit and kept the money. That is how you play. Don’t give it back. I’ll save it for the Fantasy 5 when the jackpot is high. I win money occasionally and lots of free tickets. I won a free ticket on the free ticket. I enjoy it as entertainment and don’t ever plan on winning big. I do it for fun and limit my money. Good luck if you play to win big but don’t count on it.

      00
  43. I have played a certain cash 3 number for a very long time and yesterday or the day before made a year ago that the numbers fell in any order. Seems almost impossible for that to happen. But the number that played this evening has fell 3 times in the last 2 days. SMH.

    00
  44. Cannot be depended on to work. Will allow you to deposit funds but will allow you to play only 60% of the time.

    00
  45. What a great assortment of games! This site has a whole bunch of different way to play – plus is an official site. I particularly like the Win for Life game and Decades of Dollars. I like the concept of getting regular money versus the whole lump sum. I don’t like the taxes thing, but then again, not much you can do about it.

    00
  46. Some really quality blog posts on this internet site, saved to fav.

    00
  47. It is really a nice and helpful piece of info. Im glad that you shared this helpful information with us. Please keep us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.

    00
  48. I will tell my buddies to go to this website. Thanks for the write-up.

Georgia Lottery Exposed — Georgia on My Mind…

Georgia Lottery Review

Georgia has always been famous for peaches and pecans, but it’s making a name for itself for lotteries. The Georgia Lottery is the only lottery in the US that has experienced 12 consecutive years of growth in profits. That translates into bigger prizes and jackpots. It’s an official lottery run by the State of Georgia to support the Georgia HOPE Scholarship Program, Georgia Prekindergarten Program, and various other education initiatives. Let’s look at their games.

Georgia Lottery Big Boys

Georgia Lottery operates Georgia Mega Millions and Georgia Powerball, two of the biggest jackpots in the USA. GA Mega Millions is played twice a week, Tuesday and Friday. Powerball GA is played Wednesday and Saturday. These are two mega lotteries with rollovers that grow and grow.

Galottery.com’s Daily Game

The Georgia Fantasy 5 is played daily with players choosing five numbers from 1 to 39. They add a feature called eZmatch which provides an instant win at the time of purchase. This is a mid-range jackpot that does continue to roll over until won.

Twice a Day at the Georgia Lottery

Georgia Cash 3, Cash 4 and Georgia 5 are played twice a day. These are cute little lotteries that involve picking numbers from 0 to 9 in exact order with jackpots ranging from $500 to $10,000 for the GA Five. Cash 3 GA and Cash 4 GA have a variety of box options for winning different combinations.

GA Lottery Every Four Minutes

Then there is the Georgia Keno game that is played every four minutes. It involves choosing how many spots you want to play from 1 to 10. Then players choose their numbers from 1 to 80. The more spots played, the larger the winnings. Players can also add ‘Multiplier’ which is a random number drawn between 0 to 10. This multiplies the amount of winnings by the random number.

Decades of Dollars at Georgia State Lottery

The GA Lottery offers a game with a difference. Georgia Decades of Dollars has a jackpot of $250,000 per year for 30 years. That would certainly be a nice bit of additional annual income! There is also a cash option for a flat $4,000,000 less the appropriate taxes. It’s played twice a week, Monday and Thursday with players choosing six numbers from 1 to 47. If there is more than one winner, the prizes are shared for the top two tiers.

Win for Life at Lottery GA

Last but not least, there is Win For Life. The top prize of $1,000 a week is paid quarterly ($13,000) for a minimum of ten years. Players choose six numbers from 1 to 42. There is also a ‘Free Ball’ (bonus) chosen from the same set of numbers that adds to the tier of prizes. The second prize is $1,000 a week for a year and what a year it would be!

Georgia lottery Getting your Winnings

After checking your Georgia lottery results, collecting your winnings is pretty simple. It’s important to note that for GA Mega Millions, GA Powerball, Georgia Decades of Dollars, Fantasy 5 and other daily lotteries, winnings must be collected within 180 days of the draw. For GA Instant Games (otherwise known as scratches), prizes must be collected within 90 days of the close of that game.

Anything under $600 is available from any retailer. Anything over $600 involves completing a claim form with two forms of ID. Winnings up to $499,000 can be claimed same day with anything $500,000 and overtaking 3 to 5 business days.

The Tax Man at Galottery.com

All winnings are taxed over $600. Georgia Lottery applies state (6%) and federal (25%) withholding tax. The State of Georgia also goes one further. It checks and will deduct any outstanding child support payments for prizes over $2,500 and student loans for prizes over $5000.

Georgia Lottery Customer Service

Getting in touch with Galottery.com is pretty straightforward. They have a snail mail address, main office telephone number, email, and online form, though they do say to allow 3 to 5 days for them to get back to you. There is a hotline though only available during EST business hours.

Would you mind rating GaLottery.com?

The Bottom Line at the Georgia Lottery

Georgia Lottery offers some different, unique games from the mega jackpots to daily fun. The Georgia Decades of Dollars, in particular, has a nice ring to it. Many people struggle with a big win as it is overwhelming. Getting a regular income of $250,000 for 30 years would be a lovely way to win.
