Take the pledge with me, and do not even waste your money on the Millionaire Jingle Jumbo Bucks. The odds are terrible, and not anywhere close to what you can do with Maximum Green or $100 Million Lucky Fortunes. Odds of hitting $100 are 1 in 60, about 2x worse than the other two games PLUS you cannot enter your $20 loser into a second chance drawing. It has odds of a $10 ticket, not even a really good one. You can win $1,000,000, $2,000,000 or $3,000,000 as top prizes, but I bet there will only be one or two prizes tops in each category. I would rather buy $10 Jingle Jumbo Bucks for half the price, as worthless as they were, but I don't think they are going to be available this year. i bought two which lost, and I very seriously doubt that I will buy another. These are about the worst odds of any $20 out there. If you get a JUMBO symbol, you get 5 times the amount, and if you get the Jingle Bells, you get all 20 prizes. What BS! No instant $500 on a $20 ticket, not even $300, $200, or EVEN $100. How pathetic. I like to judge tickets by the likelihood that I will win $100, which you will do with some regularity if you play the right $20 games. You may not know it, but odds of winning $100 in a $20 ticket range from 1 in 28 to 1 in 120! That is over4.25 times better odds, for the same money. Sure I like to dream big, but once again, most all $10 tickets have a top prize of $1,000,000, all $20 tickets have a top prize of anywhere from $1,000,000 to $7,000,000, but the chances of getting that ticket almost do not exist. If I can win $100 regularly, and $250, $300 occasionally, and $5000, then I am doing OK.

FOR ONCE, LET'S KICK THEM WHERE IT COUNTS. There is absolutely no reason to waste money on a ticket that has worse odds, the top prize of $10 tickets in some cases ($1,000,000). If we just keep on buying progressively worse tickets, they will keep Selling them to us. I quit buying $7,000,000 Jackpot a long time ago, because there were only two top prizes, and one has already been claimed. I personally like Maximum Green and  $3,000,000 Taxes Paid in that you get a chance to enter either weekly or monthly drawings, and the others you only get a chance to win at the conclusion of the game. You are not likely to win at the weekly drawings, but you are far less likely to win where there is only one last chance drawing, when the game is over. This sorry game, just like regular Millionaire Jumbo Bucks, does not even give you a chance to win any second chance drawings, even despite the horrible odds.

Stand with me, and don't be a fool. This is the only $20 game that has the best odds of winning a ticket. With the other games, you usually had a better chance of winning $20 (same as a ticket), but more often $25 or $30. Won't you stand with me and let's teach them a lesson. I would have NEVER wasted the money on the two tickets I did if I had seen the odds. If you are curious about the odds of winning any prize for a particular ticket, go to Galottery.com, and select Instant Games. If you see one on the left you like click on it, otherwise choose a dollar amount for the tickets, choose a ticket, and at the bottom it will have Overall odds of winning. If you click on the odds, it will give you all of the odds.

Let's all stand together and tell these losers that enough is enough. I expect to be able to win at least $100, if not $500 by hitting a symbol, and I expect weekly or monthly drawings. I am going back to Maximum Green and $3,000,000 Taxes Paid, and occasionally $100 Million Lucky Fortunes, only because it has pretty decent odds at or below $500. I guess after the Georgia Lottery sells out of those tickets, I will quit playing. The Georgia lottery is very quickly going from a lottery that you can do well at to a lottery you can do well without.

Let me know if you stand with me, and write to the Georgia Lottery as well. If we keep playing their new junk games, then they will keep selling them to us. A $20 Ticket should share these three characteristics, and if not, they are a ripoff: 1) They should have a star or some other symbol that wins $500, should have odds of 1 in 33 or better of winning $100, and should have weekly or monthly drawings. Anything else is a ripoff for the most part. Tell me if you agree or disagree, why, and if you will boycott this garbage game

      I bought 2 yesterday and got nothing. I saw one roll up to #9 and the guy said it produced a $50 winner. All of these games are starting to suck. I played every holiday game yesterday & the biggest win was $8. Lucky Fortunes is horrible now too. I can't tell you how many times I have bought at least four tickets to finally win $40! I have only won $100 once & $50 multiple times but it is not worth it. If I didn't want to win some of my money back I would quit all together. By the way there is only one $250,000 prize left and I think one top prize so they are making all their money off of us right now. So you have my promise! Lol

        Ive cut back on scratchers drastically, where last year the winnings would roll over to buy new tickets, i started finding myself having to take money out of the bank to play and im not going to do that anymore.

        Last year i did pretty good with the 10 dollar xmas card, but when i saw the new one is at 20 dollars i knew it was just another way to rip me off.

         

        Im sure they have statistics and know what they are doing with their pricing but it would just seem logical to me that if people start noticing they are losing more, they arent going to buy as much resulting in lower sales.

          I usually do very well on the scratch off. I bought 7 Jingle jumbo bucks The ($2) ones tonight and I won $20 on 5 of them and a ticket on 1.  I think it depends on where you buy your tickets to. wqhat I do is I stand and watch to see what people are buying and if they dont win and they leave the store I buy behind them. I never buy $20 tickets and I rarely buy the $10. I won 11,000 year before last on 2 $10 tickets and it put me into a higher tax bracket. When I went to turn in my tickets I bought one $2 ticket at the lottery office and won $500. My son told me to stop. lol

            It's like 1 of each prize for a  big whopping total of 3 top prizes. .They should have just reprinted the regular Jumbo Millionae game .

              I played the $5 & $2 game today and they are terrible as well. One had the Jumbo symbol with a $1 prize under it. I got another one with 10 matches and all were $1 prizes. On the $2 game all I get are free tickets. GA games are starting to suck inmy area even worse. I used to average a $100 hit per week now I am lucky to get anything. I think I need to become one of these random players then my luck may get better.

                Sir,

                      Not only do I agree with you, but if you haven't noticed, the best lottery ticket has been taken away by the Georgia lottery. The $10 scratch off called "CASH BLAST" had the odds of winning a POW symbol and you would win $100 and this ticket only costs $10 NOT $20. The best one out there is the one you are referring to "THE $100 MILLION LUCKY FORTUNES". It has an odds of winning $100 of 1 in 28 tickets, but it costs $20. That's like buying almost 2 "Cash Blast" tickets. Unless, the Georgia Lottery can invent a new ticket with almost identical odds of winning $100 for a scratch off that costs $10. You are quite right, the citizens should boycott playing any more scratch off games or any games for that matter. Maybe they will listen to us and the other millions of citizens in Georgia and Alabama (they have no lottery but do have a casino) If Georgia stays fair, I believe they will, they most likely will come out with a new $10 lottery ticket with similar odds as "Cash Blast" to win a $100 prize in the next month or two.

                  These new holiday games have been killing me, I cant seem to win anything over $20 and that was on a $1 Jingle Bucks!!!! The $2 and the $5 Jingles are horrbile too and the $20 is probably the worst ticket I have ever seen in Georgia. I dont play the $20 but I saw a guy this morning start at number 005 on the roll and finish a roll on 014 WITHOUT A SINGLE WINNER!!! (For those not in Georgia reading this, all the rolls equal $300 so the $20 tickets have 15 tickets from 000-014.) That is crazy to me, you would think there would be at least a ticket somewhere in there.... I dont understand with the Cash Blast closing out why we havent seen a good $10 to replace it. The $1,000,000 Grand Casino is alright but no where near as good as cash blast. And this month we wont see a new $10, just new 1, 2, 3, and 5 dollar games. Hopefully new month we will have some better luck.

                        Yeah I think so. Still no winners on the $20 tickets for either of the top 3 prizes. Bad thing is I don't want to play the $20 games anymore.
