        I've always liked $10 tickets, but lately the $30 ticket here in ny has paid off

        1 in 6.58 of getting a $35 win, and like 1 in 50 or so for a $100 win I believe....I've gotten so many $100 wins/$70 profit from buying one of these tickets.

              Ehh the $5 Scratchers in Florida are pretty bad. But I agree if you are in Cali / NY / Mass. they are great.

                I don't have a favorite; for me, it all depends on what I can afford and what seems hot at the time. I like the jackpots on the $10 and $20 tickets, so I try to get some of those in there. The $5 tickets have ever only won $50 for me while $2 tickets have won $100 three times, so I'm not crazy about $5 tickets. I play more $2 and $3 than $5, unless the $5 is a new game.

                  I say 10 and 20.00, only because the 5.00 have not been good to me.  I got boogered by Black, NFL Dolphins, Golden Goose, just haven't done well on those 5.00, lose 8 tickets in a row and get only a 5.00 win.   The only one I haven't done as bad on 5.00 has been Orlando Magic but once 2nd chance prizes are over I won't play that anymroe.   I have hit 100.00 several times on 10.00 ticket and 500.00 on 20.00 ticket.

                    The sports games suck in general. The football and basketball games are some of the worst I have ever played.

                      In California $5 is the highest ticket. I mostly buy $3 tickets and when I win a little will play the $5 tickets

                        wow! I wish it was that way in Ohio..a 5.00 ticket with a 1 in 3 chance!!! only the 20's have close to those odds.

                        have a great winning day!

                          At least in NJ, anything $2 and up has the same prize allocation as a percentage of funds, with anything labeled "spectacular" aloocating extra.  The best is a $10 one, but not far behind it is a $2 and $5 one.  I usually just buy the $2 ticket, it has some pretty nice prizes.

                            Typically, you want to spend at least $5 on a scratcher for a pretty descent chance of geting your money back while still netting a profit from it. Now, this may happen over a period of time or it can happen instantly. Personally, I believe it's best to stick with one type of ticket until you win, and, hopefully recover your monies. Then, with the same monies, step up to a $10 ticket which should have better odds and payouts. The more the ticket costs, the better the payout and odds of actually winning a very good prize. I've done extremely well using this methodology.

                            Among the tickets I play are the Dallas Cowboys, Houston Texans, Blockbuster, and a couple others. It's nothing for me to win $50-$100 and am about ready to move up to the $20 ticket. I have friends that have hit for $500-$1,000 because they ony play these high end tickets. Two of them hit $2,000 and the other won $5,000. All they keep doing is reinvesting the money into more of the same high end tickets at different locations. Seems to work and I want in on it, too.

                            I believe...I know I can do the same thing and have hopes of hitting it big real soon. Man, I can only imagine how it felt riding to Austin to cash in on that hit!!

                              Never had much luck with scratchers but tried to buy the newest ones out.

                              Maybe buying in TN is the problem.
