Well, it's that time of the year. Holiday scratch-offs are out. What do you think of them? Personally, I hate them for several reasons. I never win on any of them. I hate how they all have the same theme every year. I especially hate how PA's $20 scratch-off doesn't guarentee a prize on every ticket this year. I also hate those gift packs (I hear PA may come out with another one.) in which the cost is $5, but you're lucky to get back $1. Also, retailers will carry them until June. Granted they make nice gifts, but I think that lotteries shouldn't offer them.

I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

    Aren't options 2 and 4 in the poll identical (save for one word which doesn't change #2's meaning)?



    At least in MA this year the $2 ticket has a $400 prize (usually for the holiday ticket their top non-reporting/redeem anywhere prize for $2 has been only $200). No $10 holiday ticket this year.



    Other than that, I've not seen much difference here between holiday tix and the rest of the year.

        remember that some lotteries won't release all of their holiday games at once. That way, by the holiday season, players will not get tired of the games.

            I hate them!!!

            The states should be a little bit more generous this time of year

            The payouts in WI are not any better than any other scratch off, in fact some payout far much less

            Our government hates us here

            I believe life is about finding someone you cant live without

            And showing them how much you care every day of every month of every year

              remember that a lot of states offer lower top prizes so they can have more winners because holiday instant tickets are meant more to be gifts.

                Yes, i know, But we dont have good payouts at all, im not talking top prize

                Winning $5 on a $5 ticket is like 1:7 or something

                COME ON its a fricken x-mas ticket, designed like an xmas card for a present

                WI lottery, also switched to RNG.

                  i know some states have it where the lowest prize is higher than the cost of the ticket.
