A new scratch ticket in Florida, $50 Grand, lists the prize odds as:

-------------------
Odds of Winning     

$50,000.00 1-in-312,000
$10,000.00 1-in-1,248,000

$5,000.00 1-in-624,000
$1,000.00 1-in-78,000
$500.00 1-in-10,000
$100.00 1-in-960
$50.00 1-in-187.5
$25.00 1-in-120
$20.00 1-in-60
$15.00 1-in-60
$10.00 1-in-7.5
$5.00 1-in-7.5
-------------------

So, you have a much better chance of getting the $50,000 top prize than the second place prize of $10,000...

    I don't know if you noticed or not but the odds for the top prize are higher than the 2nd AND 3rd prize.  I think they are trying to increase the top prizes to entice play.  Could be a new thing.  Who knows.

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