I don't like that it's Quick Pick only, just used to playslips I guess.

I guess they don't want too many easy wins!  But then again, if you want to play a card game honestly you have to pick off the top of the card pile,  how do we know the computer draw is picking the cards from the top though?

      They have this game in Maryland.  Be warned that it is equally addictive as scratch off tickets.

      I Agree!

        If players could pick their own cards, what would stop them from picking a Royal Flush, cash their $5000 winning ticket, and repeat several times every day?

            The auto prizes are about the same as your average $2 scratch-off, but is the difference is nightly drawing. Not many $2 scratch-offs if any, pay $100,000 to $250,000.

              Nowadays lottery drawing games are looking more like instant scratch off games when it comes to prizes and odds. Oh, I forgot Powerball is a $2 premium lottery game.

                It's not bad for a draw game, but scratch games still got it beat.(mostly)

                This poker game has total payout of 60% where $2 scratch games can be 65% or more. We have a $2 scratch game with a large $750,000 top prize ($1.3M annuity) and still around 63% total payout. Typical average return is higher too around 55%, where this poker game would be less than 50%, although overall odds 1 in 2.9 are better than the 1 in 4.5 for the scratcher.

                  Yep, they keep going for more complex games, with higher payouts, approaching scratch games. Pretty soon they'll follow these new $2 games with scratch game pricing too, and have $5, $10, $20 games for the high rollers.

                  All the while outlawing casinos and online gambling in most places, while the state enjoys their monopoly gambing operation and captive market. Blue Thinking

                    Slot machines have hybrid games where the jackpot isn't necessarily matching 3, 4, or 5 exact symbols; two or three symbols starts a bonus game. Even casino table games added jackpot features to their layouts. What makes these 5 Card Cash games different, unless you buy your tickets right before the drawing, players will have to wait for the full results. With overall odds of 1 in 2.9, players will get more plays for their $2 too.

                        Well, of course, comparing casino payouts to lottery payouts is no contest: casino beats the lottery payouts by a wide margin in every single game except for Keno, the worst game in the house.

                          It's a hybrid game where players can win instantly and/or win something on the nightly drawing.

                          The tickets have five cards randomly selected and "hands" with a pair of Eights or better win something and higher hand values win more. If a player "is dealt" a Royal Flush, they win $5000. Hands less than Eights and Royal Flushes can still match the five drawn "cards" and win $250,000.
