Just checking with GA players on this one -

Have you played this new game and if so have you won anything decent ?

Personally, I have won $15 here, $20 there and numerous free tickets, and did manage one $ 50 win, but overall it seems to me that GA wants to collect the $300 million before giving any out. The odds are 1.139 but I have seen as many as 6 in a row come off the roll with absolutely nothing. That really s**ks on a $10 ticket...

According to the website, there have been two 2.5 mil winners, but I have now hit the 50 mark in non winners. I submitted them into the second chance drawing for giggles....

Would love to hear some of your opinions....

        FXS: They don't list the number of unclaimed prizes as such: they tell you how many top prizes have been claimed.

        The secondary prizes , especially in the gold rush game, are very good, but geez...there are supposed to be almost 20,000 prizes from $1000 to $ 50,000--but I think we will have to wait a while before we see any of the large secondary prizes awarded.

        It would be nice if they let us know THAT info as well.

        I hate to spend a grand trying to get a grand, if ya know what I mean.

        Guess that's why they are called paper slot machines.

          Well, I decided not to buy any Gold Rush tickets last night.

          Bought 3 of the Wild 10's $5 tickets and wouldn't ya know it ?

          first ticket $ 200.00

          second ticket $ 8.00

          third ticket $ 0

           Guess I have been looking for love in all the wrong places, as they say....

           

          The $208.00 was a nice little Saturday night surprise !!!

            It's a rip-off if the top prize(s) is/are annuity-only. Mass and NY have numerous scratches like that.

              CO No offense but you can sum all of your posts up on you Signature spot rather than repost the same comment over and over again.

               

              As for the GA ticket.  I've played and I'm not happy!  Odds are too high for this player.  I'll stick to my Jumbo Jumbo Bucks.  Only $500,000 BUT odds are 1:2.5 where gold rush and the others are 1:3.3 or so.  Some $5 tickets are almost 1:4.  (Not this lottery player! I'll play in TN)

              How are you going to win if you don't play?
