        I took some time to look into that ticket and it seems ok to me.  I don't really like the odds(1-3.3); however, you have the same odds of winning $20 as you do winning a free ticket...  1:10.  Not bad in my opinion.  Also, that's a really good top prize for a $10 game.  A lot better than what you would find in Tennessee.

        How are you going to win if you don't play?

              WOW! 10 full books!  How many in a book? 25? 50? Risky move but it does increases your chances of winning a large prize.  Sorry you didn't win.  I would have gone to vegas where the odds are slightly better if I had money to buy 10 books.  Good luck on your next 10 books buy.

              In NY the odds are pretty bad compared to other states.

              1/5-5.3 $5 

              1/4-4.3 $10

              1/3.3-3.6 $20 

              The only advantage is there are lots of people buying tickets so it increases you odds of winning something.

                  The poll only gives one choice and it makes no sense.

                      Oh wow, that is a lot of money to lose. Sorry about that. I don't really like scratch-offs. Everyone once in a while I buy a $1.00 one, but that is about it.

                        NC = NO WINNING for Scratchers!!!

                        I make the journey to VA to scratch (only about an hour +/- depending on traffic) and while the odds might be about the same or a little worse for breaking even - you hit a lot more often... Good Luck! Pogo

                            Actually $1600 back on $3000 worth of scratch tickets is about right. Also, the more you spend on a single scratch game the more you lose the majority of the time.

                            Think of it this way, what if a new game came out and you bought ALL the tickets for that game. You would be GUARANTEED to lose about half your money (a little more or less depending on the games odds and prize setup).

                              Duckman,

                              You're actually a little bit off, on the average a states advantage in Scratch games is around 33% - 40% for lower priced games and it is about 24%-28% for the higher priced ($10 and up) so Dustin should have lost about 750.00 on his "investment".

                              Dustin,

                              If you're spending $3,000 on scratch tickets you should do some research first. Since you are clearly looking for that one big winner you should look at top prizes remaining for the game you are playing, crunch the numbers and figure out what game gives you the best chance of hitting the big one. I have been doing this on my site, scratch off sniper, for 10 states that offer information that will give you an advantage over the average player. I have been very surprised that in a short time of doing this how accurately I can predict when a game is ready to hit based on remaining tickets and prizes. Virginia is currently offering two games with an advantage to the state that is currently around 10%. 

                              Jackpot Wanna makes an excellent point, Vegas is more fun than scratching 300 tickets.

                              GOOD LUCK
