In some states the game is called Five Card Cash and the cost of a ticket and the payoffs are basically the same. It's a two part game with the first part being like a video poker machine; if you match a pair of jacks or better, you instantly win. Because it's a two part game the payoffs are based on a $1 bet. If you bet $1 on a video poker machine and get two pair, you win $2 and the payoff is the same in this game. A Three of a Kind payoff is even higher at $5 to $1.
The second part of the game is matching at least two of your cards in the nightly drawing and win a prize between $5 and $100,000. Most $2 scratch-offs don't pay a top prize of $100,000 and give overall odds of 1 in 3.66 if someone is comparing. Like with any lottery game, the house has the edge so it comes down to is it fun to play and I believe it is.

Some states consider confusion on scratch-off tickets as a form of entertainment. They figure if you have to think when you lose at least you will have had an experience that you will remember.
Personally I prefer the simple approach, they pick the winning numbers and if I pick different numbers, I lose.

Poker Lotto games have been growing in popularity very quickly. The first ones starting appearing in Canada, and now they're spreading in the U.S. Seems like a nice, different game.
This Game Started In Ontario 3 Years Ago.
I Played It When It First Came Out Until The Novelty Wore Off.
I've Won Free Plays Often And Won $5 Twice In The Instant Draw.
Most I've Won On The Nightly Was $5 For A 2 Card Match.

I've played it on day one, was the first person to play at that store. I've spent $162 dollars on this game so far and have won $20.00, Pffft. I'm not happy with the game winners/payout's.
#1) I do not believe there has been a $100,000 winner yet and very few $5000 instant winners, if not only 1 so far.
#2) I do not like computer drawn games which this must be.
This game will be a "flash in the pan" if people don't start winning.
Remember "Lucky Lines"
JMHO, Play at your own risk but for 2 bucks a ticket and MAX payout being $100,000 i will keep playing "Fantasy5" instead of Poker Lotto.
The last online card game Michigan had ended around the same time the daily 4 started. It also was an easy pick only game. I don't remember its name.
I looked at the other states Poker Lotto games and Indiana has a $250,000 top prize on theirs so if they can do it then the other states can too

I'll give it a try before I decide, I'd rather be playing poker around a table, with money, snacks and drinks.

Once the players get accustomed with this game, they might enjoy playing this game. I hope the management can come up with simpler instructions so every players can follow. I hope they can also offer higher jackpot prize!
