After hearing the news report about the very lucky West Virginia lottery player (who won five scratch-off jackpots!) I decided to go to West Virginia Lottery's website and look at their scratch-offs. I couldn't believe my eyes! I am in shock! They offer many more top prizes than the Virginia Lottery!  I knew something wasn't right about the Virginia Lottery. I knew it couldn't be us -- not with the tons of money we have spent on scratch-offs. We should have been winning decent amounts all the time. I feel Virginia makes it almost impossible to win decent amounts of money on scratch-offs.

Here are some comparisons between West Virginia and Virginia scratch-offs:

West Virginia's Price Is Right scratch-off started with 13 $100,000 prizes!  Virginia's $100K Bankroll started with only 3 $100,000 prizes.

West Virginia's Go Bananas scratch-off started with 26 $2,000 prizes!  Virginia's Take the Money and Run scratch-off started with only 10 $2,000 prizes.

West Virginia's Good Luck Bad Luck scratch-off started with 55 $1,300 prizes!  Virginia's Wild Bill$ scratch-off started with only 15 $1,500 prizes.

West Virginia's Emerald Green 7s scratch-off started with 57 $7,000 prizes!  Virginia's Dazzler started with only 20 $7,777 prizes.

West Virginia's Fat Cat Tripler started with 16 $9,000 prizes!  Virginia's Cherry Doubler started with only 7 $10,000 prizes.

West Virginia's 10x the Money scratch-off started with 20 $10,000 prizes!  Virginia's Double Dollars scratch-off started with only 10 $10,000 prizes.

West Virginia's 2 Cool scratch-off started with 78 $2,222 prizes!  Virginia's Sacks of Cash scratch-off started with only 10 $2,000 prizes.

I could go on and on...

I also noticed that West Virginia offered a $40,000 scratch-off, but Virginia only offers amounts in that range as second prizes on the more expensive scratch-offs.  Virginia's scratch-off jackpots jump from $15,000 to $100,000. There is nothing in between $15,000 and $100,000. There are no Virginia scratch-offs with top prizes in the $20,000 through $75,000 ranges. By the way, West Virginia's $40,000 scratch-off, Feelin' Lucky, started with 15 $40,000 prizes!  Virginia Lottery would NEVER do such a thing!

I wish I could play West Virginia Lottery scratch-offs!  With the amount of money we spend on scratch-offs weekly, I know we would win something.

We've spent a ton of money on Virginia Lottery scratch-offs, and I feel we should have been winning at least a few hundred or a few grand here and there.  At least enough to support the playing.

    Sounds to me like the old "the grass is always greener on the other side" dilema.
