ATLANTA – Georgia Lottery players have two chances to win at Win for Life. An incorrect number reported by the Virginia Lottery for Wednesday’s (Jan. 5, 2011) Win for Life drawing has resulted in two sets of winning numbers being paid.
The third number drawn for the game was “6” but was incorrectly reported by the Virginia Lottery drawing staff as “9.” As a result of this error, prizes will be paid in Georgia for the following two winning number combinations:
3-8-9-17-21-30 Free Ball: 31
3-6-8-17-21-30 Free Ball: 31
Validations for this drawing have been suspended temporarily and will resume once both sets of numbers can be paid.
Win for Life is a multi-state game played in Georgia, Kentucky and Virginia. The Virginia Lottery conducts Win for Life drawings, which are held at 11 p.m. every Wednesday and Saturday.
Win for Life offers a $1,000 a week for life top prize, totaling $52,000 a year for life. Tickets are $1 per play.
As with all other Georgia Lottery games, proceeds from Win for Life will benefit education in the state of Georgia. Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $12.1 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs, including Georgia’s HOPE Scholarship Program and Georgia’s Pre-K Program. More than 1.25 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
