would you buy a 100 dollar scratch off if at least every 4 outta 5 won at least the money you paid to begin with or more?

    I would not buy a 100 dollar scratch off if they ever came out with one in my state.

      it would all depend on a few things.



      1. the value of a dollar. if inflation takes its toll, and a pop would cost $50-100, then i'd buy it.

      2. the game style. i wouldn't want to play a game that i didn't like the style of.

      3. the color of the ticket. somehow this has an effect on me.

      4. the name of the ticket. once again, somehow this has an effect on me.

      5. the top prize. i would not want a $100 ticket with a top prize of less than $50million-100 million.

      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.

        Nope - it's just a simple matter of $100 being too rich for my blood.

            100 dollar scratch is not realistic or profitable

              why not keep the hundred or buy 100 megamillions tickets instead.. ?might get even more.. whats the point of paying 100 for a ticket.. if you might only get 100 back??

                What about the 20% of tickets that don't pay you at least the $100?  Would they pay $50?  Nothing?

                And the 80% that pay at least your $100...most of them would have to pay just the $100, even then doesn't seem profitable for the lottery.

                  I would look at playing a $100.00 scratch off like that of playing the $100.00 slot machines (which I don't play). If you can afford to take that chance then take it. If you can't then leave it alone.

                        Seriously how could you have  a scratch off game for 100 bucks and odds of winning one out of every 1.2, and then have the top prize 50 million dollars? People have no problem putting down a dollar for a huge dream. People arent going to put 100 bucks down for a 10 million to one odds to win 50 million or 100 million. This idea is a pipe dream.  Now a 100 dollar ticket with a million dollar top prize is a great idea.  Sell 100k tickets for 100 bucks a pop. That is a ten million dollar fund. 75% payback percentage is 7.5 million and then set prizes accordingly from there. One top prize winner per 100k tickets sold. Then the remaining 6.5 million paid out in other levels.  Have overall odds of say 1 out of 2.25 or have every ticket a winner for at least 25 bucks.

                            If it had, like, 20 different games, and took all day to play, then yeah.

                              Maybe Connecticut will be the first state with a $100 game.
