What is your take on the games here in TN?

I feel they are better than in KY (Pay off wise) but not quite up to par with GA scratchers.

Overall I like them. I do wish I would hit higher payouts more often but who doesnt :)

I have found the game with the best odds to be Jingle Jumbo Bucks at 1 in 2.56 or something like that. Only problem is they are only out around Christmas time. I do not recall seeing anyone hit the $250,000 jackpot on this $10 game though.

Jingle Millionare Bucks just hit and I expected the odds to be much better than the 1 in 3.01. Millionaire club is at 1 in 2.98.

The website did report that 3.5 million has already been won with the new game, so we will see how it pans out.

But what do you think of games in TN?

    Well myself i dont play nothing but jumbo bucks. i seem to win more on the two dollar cards ive hit $500 $100 and $75 here recently.. I also hit on the fast fives for $100 when they first came out but nothing big after that but free quick picks.

    I never really buy $20 cards unless i win 20 or more then i might.. ive never had any luck with them... Do you buy more than one at a time? 

    When i play the $2 cards i most of the time buy 5 at a time or 3 $5 cards at a time... But jumbo the way to go there way more prizes still out on them.

    Well the TN Lottery website says there is anyway.

      Jumbo bucks tends to be more on my favorites list than the others. Overall it just seems to payout a little better. And finding a 'jumbo' symbol is never a bad thing.


      The most I have won on Jumbo is $35, which was great, as it hit the day I was leaving for Tunica.

       

      I buy more than one when I can but it is rare. I have found that I like buying from the machines you find at some gas stations and Dollar General's now. Seems more 'fair' like you dont have a clerk selling the tickets and learning when the roll will hit again.

       

      I didnt realize the tnlottery site shows how many prizes remain for a given game. I need to look into that. I have wondered it on games like 50 million dollar spectacular and some of these other games.

        Yea you can go on the tn website and it tells you how many tickets are out there with the prize amounts.... Go to instant games the go to remaining prizes its really helpful...theres alot of tickets i use to waste my money on till i ran uopon that site and seen wat tickets got a better chance in winning...

            The 2 dollar jumbo bucks are getting harder to win off of now.

            When i buy them i get 20 at a time and all i ever see now is

            tickets or dollars. When i get a jumbo it is usually a dollar or two.

            The last time they reloaded them they only put 26 50,000 dollar

            prizes on them. They use to put 40 or 50. The new 20 dollar

            millionare jumbos they put only 4 1,000,000 dollar prizes on

            them. Georgia has 10 1,000,000 dollar prizes on theirs.

            What does that tell you?

              It is sad that in these tough times even the lottery is cutting back. It should be the opposite though sinc u hear so much about lotteries still doing well while us po folk chase the almighty dollar.

              I was ready to invest - literally- in the new millionaire jumbo game til I checked the tnlottery remaining prizes. Thanks so much blackdave!

              Instead I invested in the tn millionaire game and won $130 on 2 diff tickets. Turned around and lost it all and then some after that but that's another story.

              For shame they only offer 4 millionaire prizes on mill. Jumbo. I think I'll stick to the peer amounts now. Giant jumbo seems to be the best bet.

              And the prizes where there's only 1 left--does that mean they are contenders for the next Play it again?

                Even the giant jumbos suck.

                  Ive never hit for more than $20 on the Giant Jumbos.

                  Seems like 1000 used to hit on those quite a bit but I never see it now.

                      I enter the ones I get...not sure why though, I dont think it would ever amount to anything.


                      I wish they held drawings more often, or at least threw in some extra bonus drawings like they did one time (several extra 1000 prizes or something it looks like).

                      OVerall I am glad they offer it--many states do not.

                      As for the site showing the remaining prizes... I love this, but I wish they would show more detail. They only show the top 3. I wish it would drill down to as far as 100 and 500. For instance, I would like to see how many are left on the TN Millionaire.
