State lottery officials say the Carolina Cash 6 game has not caught on, so it will end in October.
The unique game features a top prize of $200,000 – taxes paid – for a $2 ticket matching all six numbers in drawings on Mondays and Thursdays.
But lottery officials say ticket sales have dropped since Carolina Cash 6 was introduced four months ago.
Holli Armstrong, with the South Carolina Education Lottery, says they're looking at other options to replace the game, plus preparing to roll out new games such as one where you'll be able to win a Honda all-terrain vehicle – made right here in South Carolina at the plant in Timmonsville.
Armstrong says they're also gearing up for changes to Mega Millions, expected in October.
“You're going to see a larger starting jackpot and faster growing jackpot to compete with Powerball,” Armstrong tells WVOC.
“You know, recently Powerball posted a $425-million jackpot and before that, $590-million. So, Mega Millions has seen the success Powerball has had recently after making some changes. I will say the cost of the Mega Millions ticket will not be changing.”
Armstrong says those tickets will still be $1, unlike Powerball tickets, which doubled to a cost of $2 when the game underwent a makeover earlier this year.
