Anyone see the new Florida instant game ticket yet?  Billion Blockbuster began Tuesday, it costs $20 and the top prize is $10 million paid out over 20 years.  2nd prize is $1 million paid out over 20 years. 

Usually Florida scratch-off games have a cash option, but I'm not sure it is available on every game.  $500,000 a year for 20 years would be ok with me. Yes Nod

Odds are 1:6,552,000 for the $10M top prize and 1:540,000 for the $1M

Smallest prize is $20 (your money back) which is 1:8.33

    I've been considering this game...  However, it's tough to just give up on my favorite, Gold Rush.  I think the odds of winning $500 on GR are around 1:175ish...  Whereas on Blockbuster they are somewhere around 1:500ish I believe...  Yeah, I wouldn't mind $500,000 a year for 20 years either but I'm not enthused by the Possible Top Prizes.  I want to go after something a little more realistic.  A $1,000-$10,000 win would make me happy!

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

          Ouch!  I don't know if this has ever happened to anyone here, but when buying my Fantasy-5 ticket, the clerk tore off one of these $20 Instant Game tickets.   The man in front of me bought one and he heard me chatting with him and, for some reason, thought I wanted one too.  I didn't have $20 on me, but when I got home I kept thinking "what if that was one of the $10 million tickets?"  Eek  Guess I'll never know.

              I wonder if there is a cash option.   Florida usually offers it, but I don't see anything that indicates it's available for this game.

               

              Edit:  I apologize for my "senior moment."  I asked this question already.  Crazy

                based on the odds posted, does anyone notice that the odds to win $50 is more than a $100?
