The final drawing in Iowa's $100,000 Cash Game will be on Saturday, Jan. 25. We’re putting the finishing touches on plans for the game that will replace it and we’ll make that announcement soon.
From our sales figures, we can tell that the $100,000 Cash Game appears to have a core group of fans. But its sales are well down from the levels it saw when it started back in 1992.
We've updated our other lotto games several times through the years - think about the redesigns you've seen in Powerball®, Mega Millions® and Hot Lotto®. We think that by refreshing our lotto product with a top prize of $100,000, we can bring in an interesting new concept for players to check out.
As the end date for the Cash Game approaches, you’ll notice that the number of plays you can buy for its drawings in advance will decrease. Starting today, advance plays will be limited to 24 and that number will continue to decrease by one for each upcoming drawing until the game's end.
We'll have an announcement soon about a replacement game that will have the same $1 price point and several drawings each week.
