My advice is to not to buy any $2 ticket, even for an otherwise good game like MA Cash Winfall. If you do, you are voting with your wallet and telling the lottery you don't mind paying $2 for a ticket. Well, I do mind.
Massachusetts has season tickets for all the $1 games - $100 for 104 drawings, $50 for 52 drawings. They don't offer a season ticket for Cash Winfall, because they know people would resist paying $200 for 1 year season ticket. That should tell you something. So the $2 ticket price eliminates the season ticket market, which according to an article in the Globe was booming last Christmas. And they also lose a lot of people who refuse to pay $2.
