TN's First $20 Scratch Off...  All I can say about this ticket is NO!!!  First off it only has a top prize of $300,000.  Not good enough if you ask me.  $500,000 We'll talk...  Now lets talk odds...  A $20 ticket with $10 ticket odds... You be the judge. I see this ticket flying off the shelves (Just like TN's first $10 scratcher which was also a Holiday Themed Scratch off.)  However, I'm not liking anything about this ticket.  I do like $20 tickets (Won $500 in Florida earlier this year); however, the odds and top prizes in Florida (and GA for that matter) are a lot better.  Just my opinion...  Stay Away.  And let the boycott continue. 

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

    i went to wildwood,georgia today to buy my megamillions futures and i decided to play georgia fantasy 5 while i was  there too since i dont play the rng lotto 5 here anymore. i saw an ad for this $20 scratcher at the gas station. the $20 scratcher and the raffle are coming at the same time so you are correct about the odds of the scratch off and  the top tier prize but we will wait to see if the raffle moves faster this time than last time. i dont know if the players will spend $20 on a holiday scratcher but if they are part of the boycott it wont really matter to them.

          Odds aren't that good when the first $10 ticket had odds of 1:2.34.  Those have gone up to 1:3.2 (on average now).  And by looking at KY, TN's odds are just horrifying.

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

                i cant imagine it will be very popular. i think people who arent boycotting the lottery would rather buy two $10 raffle tickets instead of one $20 scratch off ticket.

                  What were the two winning ticket prizes?  2 out of 50 or 100?  The prizes must have been big? 

                   

                  Overall odds are 1 in 3.26.   How can there be only 2 winners?

                    The overall odds are just that overall...  There were millions of tickets printed with odds on average 1:3.26.  There are 30 tickets per roll.  Although unlikely, there is still a chance that there would only be 2 winners in a roll of 30. Remember some rolls have more winners than others.  It all depends on how you look at it.  As for the prizes, those prizes might have only been free tickets.  Or they could have been $50+ winners.  There really isn't enough information given.  The 2 winners could be the only winners that came back to the store and claimed.  Some may have taken their tickets home and cashed them at a different store or cashed them in at a different time.  There are too many uncertainties going on to determine anything; however, it is possible since tickets are printed randomly.

                        Those odds are great compared to New York.

                        Most $10 tickets have odds over 1:4.2

                        New York is greedy!!!!!!!!!!!

                          That's terrible.  You're right, they are greedy.  I would never play a $5 ticket with odds >1:3.3, $10 >1:3.0, and $20 1:2.9.  But I'm biased toward FL,GA,SC, and some of KY.

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