Yep $30.00 for a single ticket isn't going to go over to well. I'd rather take that $30.00 and play the mega-million $5.00 twice a week and take my chances.

I 100% agree! Does anyone know if there are 2nd and 3rd prizes and what they are?

      if i were in NY I would mos def get one of these scratchers......and I'm not a scratch player. I like the numbers games only

      but that payout is quite tempting to me....

        Has anyone bought one?  What are the other prizes?   Are there 30 chances to win on this $30 ticket?  Guess I should go into a store near me and see, huh?  Bash

        My hubby will buy one!  He isn't afraid to take chances on the scratch-offs.  I would rather put my $30 in the slot machine; the penny ones!  One pull of the penny machine brought me $216.00 last Monday!  Woo Hoo!!   LOL

        I  have  no  desire  to  put  30.00  down  on  one  ticket  ...in  new  york  no  one  ever  gets $$$$ 500,000  from  the  pick  10  ;

        so  the  thought  of  getting  a  million  a  year  in  a  state  that  will  take  your  winngs  from  you  at  any  given  moment  through  legal   proceedings  I  think  not  ....  the  scratch  offs  are  75%%  loosers  per  game ......

          Today, I went to my favorite candy/lotto store.  I noticed the store clerk unrolling a new pack of the new $30 Scratch offs.  I asked him for one and I won $500.  The ticket number was #50.  Got 8 coins adding up to $500.  I noticed in all the stores I go to, they give you tickets starting from the last ticket number.  Have anyone experienced this too.  Going shopping today.  Seeya!

            Yesterday, the lady in front of me won $500 on a ticket. She had a couple of $50 pairs and the rest were $100 pairs adding up to $500. The store clerk hung it up immediately showing the winning amount so that people would be influenced to buy it. The ticket number was #30. What's funny is that every time I went to the store, I would look at the game and see that it always had 30 tickets there and kept wondering when somebody would buy one.

            The lady was VERY nice and paid for my numbers and for the other person's numbers that was in the store at the time.

              The question is, "How many did she buy?" 

              I would agree, It is foolish to buy a ticket with a big winner on the same roll.  I would not buy too.
