Hi;

I have been playing  Maine's on line fast play 'Break the Bank' . I have tickets with a $4 prize, but un- like NH which has prize tiers from 1-2-4-5$... Me. has 1-3-5$ ... there is no $4 prize. I have talked with people at the lottery and am assured there is no such prize ... yet they feel nothing is wrong.

any thoughts ??

    Have you tried reading the official rules for that game?

      ...  what I posted before  ...   ' I have talked with the Maine lottery people... ' 

      They say there is no prize ...  on the web site there is no prize listed ... Maine lottery has talked to their  vendors ... 

       So if u buy a tic with a 4$ prize,  Maine is selling  ' a worthless instrument' or fraud.  I was just told by 'Joe' in marketing ....  that the 4 is ment to be combind to other prizes, which it can't be.... drum roll ... because there is no ....

      So if I buy a 'Break the Bank' with 3 possible prizes ... say 3-4 100-  ... is't it  the same as buying  3 light bulbs, only one is burned out ... ??  

      I know this is silly but I was wondering   where it all goes ...

      thank you

        There's a lottery in Maine? ..................................People live in Maine?

         

        It's weird how you never hear of people living in Maine, Rhode Island or Wyoming.

          How could you possibly have a ticket with a $4 prize if there are no $4 prizes in the game? What is it that makes you think you've won this nonexistent prize?
