Is anyone excited about the new $20 ticket 7 mil Jackpot that was just released today? It's the highest top prize in Ga. I had the opportunity to buy the first ticket ever sold in my fav local store and decided against it. Wondering if I should come back tomorrow.

      Funny right after I posted that last night I headed back to that store to check it out. I asked and they said someone bought 2 and bost lost. So I bought 2. One was a loser and the other $200!

                True the odds aren't that good , but better than the super millions and taxed paid $20 tickets. Anyone else had any luck?

                  I am looking forward to going back to Georgia soon. I have had much better luck in Georgia on scratch offs than here in South Carolina. They suck

                  so hard I quit playing scratch offs in South Carolina at all. So good luck to all you Georgia players.

                  Rehab is for quitters.

                    The odds of $7 Million Jackpot are WAY WORSE than any of those games. ONE person has won $7,000,000, and there is ONLY ONE $7,000,000 ticket left with odds of 1 in 3,600,000. Go to http://www.galottery.com/games/instant-games/top-prizes-claimed to check and see how many top prizes of a game are left! Go to http://www.galottery.com/games/instant-games/instant-games and select $20 tickets. Click on each ticket, and THEN click on the link for odds if you want, but I have included them. The OVERALL odds are a little better, but the odds of winning anything decent are abysmal. Maximum Green Beats it in every category except $50. I consider $100 to be the benchmark I like to go by best. For example, Maximum Green has odds of 1 in 32 of winning $100, Super Millions 1 in 36. $7 Million Jackpot has odds of 1 in 120 of winning $100. That is terrible for a $20 ticket. I hope to win the big prize, but I go by the actual odds of winning a decent prize, and that is at least $100. Who really wants to win $70 when they can win $100 with ? I got a bunch of $30 winners at first, but most are losers now. I am going to quit playing this game. It is worthless. Here is how they stack up against each other, and I even included $10 Tickets:

                    $10 and $20 ticket comparisons

                    Knowing that there is just one $7,000,000 winner left, there is not a snowballs chance in hell I will buy another of those tickets. This is worse than any other $20 game out there, Congratulations to those who won $200. There are also no other tickets to compare, because no other game has a $200 prize. I imagine I am Happier with my $250 and $300 winners, but I have yet to hit anything over that. I am waiting on $500, and hopefully it will come soon.

                    AT the conclusion of this game, there will be ONE lucky winner drawn from hundreds of thousands or even millions of non-winning tickets entered into the second chance drawing. Maximum Green Has Monthly drawings in which ten winners win $10,000 EACH, and $3,000,000 Taxes Paid has one winner drawn each WEEK, and it pays $20,000. Please folks, bring GA lottery to their knees. Let them know with your letters, phone calls, and most importantly, your wallet that you will no longer be purchasing $20 tickets that do not have regular drawings.

                    QUIT BUYING THIS JUNK TICKET NOW! This game can go on FOREVER if no one wins or claims the other $7,000,000 winner. By the way, if you didn't notice in the charts, this ticket does not have any tickets (other than the grand prize) higher than $500,000. And what are those odds you ask? THE SAME AS THE TOP PRIZE, 1 in 3,600,000. 1 in 3.6 million chance of hitting $500K. What about Maximum Green? How about 1 in 840,000 to win $1,000,000. Hmmm, hard question here. You have better than 4.25 times better odds of hitting $1 Million with Maximum Green than you do of hitting $500,000 with. Compare the other top-tier prizes as well. The reason this same has better overall odds than some games  is that it has a TON of Ticket, $30, $40, $50 and $70 winners. After $70, your odds go way down.

                    Nail the coffin on ths one. Make them pull them fron the stores and machines. Be smart and spend your hard earned money on a ticket that might win you something. Let me tell you a secret: Lottery ticket sales are down for the first time since it opened, so they are making their money back with games like this. Save your money and pass this one up. Trust me, I have a few $30 winners that I got when it came out, but as of recent, they are mostly losers.

                    PLAY THIS GAME AT YOUR OWN PERIL! iT IS THE BIGGEST FRAUD EVER PUT BEFORE GEORGIA PLAYERS.

                      $20 and $10 winners

                       

                      I am not sure if the last image posted, so here it is again a little smaller for all of you Georgia players. Let me know if you can see either image.

                          I wouldn't touch this one unless they dropped it to $5.

                          After reading Carhaulers breakdown it's safe to say that one sucks.
