The Virginia Lottery's Lotto game is no more, but don't worry you're not out of luck.
That's because the lotto game officially became Lotto South today.
It's a multistate venture with Kentucky and Georgia designed to produce bigger payoffs for players.
For example, the base jackpot now starts at two million dollars rather than one million for Lotto Virginia.
The state created Lotto South because Lotto Virginia sales have fallen short of expectations.
Tickets for the new game went on sale today, the first drawing is Wednesday.
The hunt is on in Sacramento, California for a former security guard accused of gunning down four people last night.

Perhaps nothing sums up what World Help does better than the faces of its international childrens choir.
Orphans from far- flung places like India, Burma and Nepal.. they've grown up destitute, homeless and hungry.
They're in America to make a difference.
[natsot singing ]
Last year's choir tour raised a quarter million dollars to build orphanages overseas.. another victory for Vernon Brewer's charity.
Brewer started World Help ten years ago with a goal of distributing Bibles to hundreds of thousands of Christians in the old Soviet Union.
((VERNON BREWER/WORLD HELP: SINCE THAT DAY, WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO DISTRIBUTE SEVEN MILLION BIBLES WORLDWIDE, NEW TESTAMENTS, AND TONS AND TONS OF HUMANITARIAN RELIEF IN CRISIS AREAS LIKE KOSOVO AND THE EARTHQUAKE IN GUDJARRAT AND HELP SUFFERING CHILDREN WITH OUR CHILD SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM, SO IT'S JUST GROWN TREMENDOUSLY IN TEN SHORT YEARS.))
[OUT Q=ten short years.]
[natsot from file tape ]
The supplies, like Brewer said, have gone to victims of earthquakes, famine and war.. and those who simply had the misfortune to be born poor.
[natsot choir singing]
The success of the choir has helped spread the word about World Help's mission.
((MIKE STEWART/WORLD HELP: IT BRINGS TO THE ATTENTION OF PEOPLE THAT WE DO SO MANY DIFFERENT THINGS. WE'RE NOT JUST A CHILD SPONSORSHIP GROUP, WE'RE NOT JUST A BIBLE DISTRIBUTION GROUP, WE'RE SO MUCH DIVERSIFIED AND SOMETIMES WE CAN OFFER RELIEF AND DEVELOPMENT, THE CHILD SPONSORSHIP, THE BIBLES, WE BUILD CHURCHES AND PLANT CHURCHES AND I THINK JUST THE NAME OF WORLD HELP WITH THIS CHOIR TRAVELING AND DOING ALL THOSE DIFFERENT THINGS IN DIFFERENT PLACES JUST INCREASES THAT AWARENESS.))

From orphans to earthquake victims to starving nations.. World Help has been there.
And when you deal with problems so large, it helps to think big.
Brewer's next goal: bringing the word of God to 80 million Chinese.
((VERNON BREWER: IT'S MY PERSONAL DREAM IN THE NEXT SEVEN YEARS BEFORE THE BEIJING OLYMPICS IN 2008, TO SEE THAT EVERY CHINESE CHRISTIAN HAS A BIBLE OF THEIR OWN. SO THAT'S A MASSIVE PROJECT THAT WE'RE DREAMING ABOUT RIGHT NOW.))

Instead Wilmington goes yard in the top of the first inning as Eric Nelson takes 1-1 Cory Vance offering and curves it around the pole in left field. 1-to-nothing Wilmington.
But in the next frame, Salem's Greg Catalanotte would even things up with a drive to the wall in the left center field. Scott Seal wasn't running on the pitch, but he was scooting after the hit. Watch him beat the throw to the plate. It's 1-all after 2 innings.
The Blue Rocks got what turned out to be the eventual game winning run in the top of the 3rd as Norris Hopper, who went three for four on the night drive in Corey Hart to with outs in the innings to make it 2-to-1.
Defense would then take over for both teams. First watch Marco Cunningham in right field rob Javier Colina with the diving catch in the gap.
But that was nothing compared to the four defensive gems turned in at third base by Salem's Seth Taylor. The Florida native did his best to keep it a one run game.
((SETH TAYLOR/AVALANCHE THIRD BASEMAN:))
But Hart would break the hearts of the Avalanche faithful again in the 7th with a solo homer to right to make it a 3-to-1 game.
