Anyone see the new promotion for EZ Match on the Fantasy 5?  There will be an increase from a $500 instant prize to $1,000.  There is also going to be more of the $100 prizes.  This is a 4 week promo. Haven't heard any other info about it.  Feb and March are the busiest months for tourism in Florida - Snowbird Season.  (there's actually a song "if it's snowbird season, why can't we shoot 'em?)

Edit:  Okay, maybe I'm not using my brain right today.  The odds shown for the top EZ Match prize on the FL web site for this promotional period are different. Why?  If the top prize was $500 before and now it's $1,000, why would the odds increase so dramatically, or at all?  The chances of winning the top prize are still the same aren't they?  (unless there are more top prizes being awarded..maybe that's it.)

    Wow - I just noticed something!  When did I become a "Top 100 Poster?"  Gee, I'm really touched.  It wasn't a goal or anything, but now I feel as if I just reached a milestone in my life and need to celebrate. 

    You are all invited.

      They are giving away more top prizes ($100 and $1000). The $1000 top prize is given out every 70,000 tickets and the $100 prizes are given out every 5,250 tickets. This is a fixed amount of winners given out. The lottery simply modified their computer system to give out more prizes per x number of Fantasy 5 tickets bought.

      The overall odds of winning anything are about the same (was 4.88 now 4.87).

      Still, the odds are not good ... the odds are in the scratch off ticket range. Actually, you could think of this as a glorified online scratch off ticket.
