Very timely indeed. Oklahoma has a new $1 scratcher called "Fill 'Er Up". In addition to cash prizes, winners can earn free unlimited gasoline for 1 full year!!!

    We used to have that game in GA with a measly $500 grand prize and no gas prizes.  I don't recall ever winning a dime off of those tickets (not even a free ticket).

    I bet if GA had that game back and they had gas prizes, people would buy those tickets left and right and make Jumbo Bucks look like an average scratcher. LOL

    If you decide to try some out....good luck to ya.  Hope ya get the correct tic-tac-toe combo and have $2500 or GAS in the prize box. Big Grin

    A Gold account on Lottery Post:  $4.95

    A Millionaire Jumbo Bucks scratcher:  $20

    Airfare and hotel in March 2007 to see The Price Is Right before Bob Barker retired:  $600-something

    Winning something to get a trip to a district office:  Priceless Big Grin

        I think it's a good idea, too.

        How about taking such a ticket and target marketing them to convenience stores/ gas stations that have lotto?

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

            I'd want to see the fine print on that "unlimited". Evil Smile

              So far, I'm not that impressed with them here in Oklahoma. I usually buy at least 1 each night along with my Pick-3 plays, and so far, my grand total in winnings is "SQUAT".

                New Mexico is also doing a special promotion with gas, but you send in your losing scratch offs and you can win a chance for a $100 gas card. I think it's a pretty good idea. At least you could win something that is really needed for your losing tickets.
