    That is a pretty good payout if one were to win. But $20 a ticket would be too steep for me to play. What are the other prize levels?

      Oops you're $10.00 short the ticket price is actually $30.00. I can still feed my family of 4 for a couple of days for $30.00 are they crazy or what??

          Eek. That is a lot of money for a scratch-off. I don't think I would purchase one of those. I could get multiple draws of hot lotto and powerball with 30 bucks.

            Watch an 18 year-old win the first jackpot.

            I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

              I buy $20.00 scratch offs with a $2 million top prize in mich, so yes i would surely spend $30 for $1 million a year for life.  God bless and good luck.

                yeah i was thinking claim the prize in the name of some new born. then I saw you say 18 and I  remebered that theres an age limit and they would prob void the ticket if you tried to claim it for  a newborn.

                  Florida launched a $30 ticket in January and sales have been slow to say the least. It's just too much money.

                    How about a 21-year old? This 21-year old to be exact.

                      I agree. Too me, it's a lot of money to spend on one ticket.

                              Actually you beat me to it...

                              Since you say it starts today september 2nd...Well there is one that has been going on in Massachussettss called: billion dollar blockbuster though different but a little bit similar...I was going to post it but you beat me to it...

                              check out: This one is called: 1 Billion dollar blockbuster...

                              http://www.masslottery.com/BBB_index.html

                              it has 1 winner who wins 1 million dollars a year for life, 10 winners who win 10 million dollars, and 130 winners who win 1 million dollars...

                              check out what it says before each picture...It says: 1 lucky winner will win 1 million dollars a year for life...

                               

                              and i know you are going to say: OH my gosh if someone is 32 years old assuming each human beeing lives to be 100 years then that person is going to receive 68 million dollars in his lifetime from the lottery and so is every winner? Well they could but think about this also something i've been writing for years..

                              The interest on 20 million dollars on 5% is 1 million dollars each year...And on 25 million dollars at 4% is 1 million dollars each year...So the lottery can get 20 or 25 million place it in the bank and let the bank give it 5% or 4% each year which will be 1 million and this will the players jackpot for life, but when the player dies the lottery withdraws the 25 million dollars and stays with it...This is how this could work...Not saying that this is how it works just saying this is how it could work...So basically the lottery will be spending 25 million per winner and not 68 million dollars...But whatever bank they use it will have to be one strong bank been able to withstand the test of time...

                              The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨
