Has anyone else from Georgia been playing the new 20 dollar millionaire jumbo bucks?  I have played a total of 12 tickets, I hit 100 dollars 4 times, 50 dollars 2 times, 30 dollars 3 times, and a free ticket (20 dollars) once, and only had 2 losing tickets!!! I mean I am annoyingly strategic with picking my tickets, but still....awesome payout percentage!! I'm addicted, haha. I better stop before the luck runs out. =) but then again, I do have tuition due this week...... hmm..

    I'm not in Georgia, so I can't play it, but congrats on your wins!

      I've hit $50 on it (picture in my blog) and a $25 winner.  Other than that....not much luck.  I've actually given up playing them for now because my luck turned for the worst on those.

      Congrats on your luck so far.  May you hit even bigger winners. Smile

        Sounds like a good deal there.  Congrats.  I'm sure since GA has a $20 jumbo bucks TN will follow close behind...  Then again TN still doesn't have a $10 one...   Good luck!

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

          I don't get it; Millionaire Jumbo Bucks has printed on the ticket, "Highest Payout In GA Lottery History!!!" but nowhere on the website can I find either a payout, or even an odds and tickets chart to calculate the payout myself.

          Hell, the payout could be 50% for all we know..... I wish I had more info.... I've always been a fan of the Jumbo Bucks line of tickets.

          Now I'm regretting not stopping by GA when I was by the border and picking up one of those.

            yes, they refer to the payout amount of the big prize you can win, not the payout rate.

             

            Va. has those tickets too, so other states will probably get them soon, but the odds of winning it are really really bad.  Instead, I may just buy a couple of $10 Pick 5 tickets next time, and still win a million.

              No, not true.

              It says right on the ticket, "Highest Payout % In Georgia History"

              So they are talking about the percentage, but do not give any stats, which is infuriating.  Have you been paying out 60% this whole time, and this game is a 61% game?  Or is it something amazing, like an 88% return rate?

                I have not purchased the new Millionaire Jumbo yet but looking on the lottery website I see that 2 of the 5 top prizes have already been claimed for(2.5 million) and only 1 of the 10 prizes for $250,000 have been claimed. I see a lot of $100 winners in the stores that I frequent.

                  wow, you're right, I just saw a picture of it on their website

                   

                  and you're right, they don't seem to give out much info. about it.

                   

                  If they normally pay out about 50%, then yes,  about 61% would qualify the game as the highest in history  (Ga. history).  Because their overall odds are real low (1:3.1 or something), it seems that way too many very small prizes got put into it. 

                  People really do need to know how many tickets were printed, or what the initial odds chart looks like.

                    adding to the confusion, I noticed at the bottom of the [estimated] remaining prize list that Ga lottery reserves the right to print more at any moment

                    Confused

                      I see people buying them all the time. $20 a pop is quite pricy...especially something I can't predict. Also, I haven't found a retailer around here with a good vibe to buy from. :P

                          I won $100 a few weeks ago on one but that's about it.....I had bought a couple before and I lost so really I do not consider that a big win....I liked the other $20 ticket better. When you think of it $20 is a lot of money to lose....I'd rather play cash 3!
