Just seeing what everybody's favorite style of game to play is. I highly enjoy Pac-Man(SECL), and old SC Lottery game called Wild Cherries(in NC as well) where you have to match 3 like symbols. I think the GA Lottery has a similar game called Organge Twist and Cherry Twist. I also used to enjoy a game called Double Time that you could win if you matched 3 like amounts or matched numbers.

 

What about everybody else?

    I like the games where you get more bang for your buck. We have a Millionaire Monopoly ticket

    here in PA. It's a $20.00 ticket with 2 play areas. One with 20 boxes to match your 6 numbers to and

    another area that has 3 boxes for a bonus prize of $50.00 $100.00 or $1,000.00. If the area

    contains a dollar amount, that's what you win. Otherwise it says: try again. There are also

    symbols to look for - a hotel or a top hat. They will either get you all 20 prizes (hotel) or $100.00

    (top hat) Great ticket and my favorite. 

    I detest the $5.00 bingo games. They take too long just to win nothing most of the time.

      Definately the extended-play games like Bingo and, in particular, Crossword. I want to prolong my fun.

        ditto on this...

         

        I like it to take longer to lose my money hahaha

         

        although the Crossword game has actually turned a small profit for me...

          Personally, I like different kinds.  I don't have a particular favorite type of game.  I am glad that the GA Lottery finally introduced another "get x-like amounts, win that amount" game (Triple Wild).  It's been several years since we had one, IIRC.  I do wish, being that I like game shows, that we'd get scratchers like The Price Is Right and Wheel of Fortune, among others.

          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 checked "other" because my favorite scratch-offs are the winners. LOL  So far I haven't done too well with scratch-offs.

              When I lived in CA I used to buy the match 3 of a kind because a store clerk told me they payed out more often than the ones where you match the numbers. Here in IL I like the ones where you scratch off coins and if they total over a dollar you win the prize. LOL too bad the prize is usually small. I don't care for the scratchers that have multiple games on one card. I have never won anything on these cards and have noticed that some of these games are confusing.

                I voted for find like amounts.  I don't like the bingo or cashword games that take too long to figure out if you won, where you can easily miss something.

                  I love the Kentucky $2 Bingo! I play them when I am bored at work, and I have learned to always double check them.  I cannot count the times I went back over the ticket and found I had won! Nothing huge, but hey $2 is $2 I wouldn't have gotten back had I not checked!!
                  I also Love the Birthstone $1 tickets, and the GoodLuck bad Luck $1 tickets and the $5 Price is Right tickets

                    I like the time-wasters, like bingo, crossword, keno, etc.

                    I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                      I like the $5 GEMS tickets in VA & NC - I.E. Diamond 7's, Emarald 7's, Ruby 7's, Topaz 7's, etc. Also like to match Amount's, but I pretty much play anything I can lay a coin on - in particular my lucky Liberty Head V Nickel... I like the high number tickets especially 39, 38 & 37... Or even better a whole brand new roll - hmmm... ...me have to go to VA...  grrr... ....me have to go to VA.... ...hmmm - me need tickets.... GRRR.... rofl - Pogo... for real though!

                        I like anything that will "win me some money." I look at the probability odds on the tickets to estimate the amounts of winning tickets there maybe in each book of that game. How long I want to devote to a scratch off depends on my mood or how much time I have to waste.

                        Many time, I will buy a large number of tickets to take home to play when I have some down time.

                        I personally don't like the faded out symbol matching types of scratch offs because they are so hard for me to see. I can easily miss a symbol...which may be the point of making the symbols so faded looking.

                        Presently, my favorite is "Red Hot 5's"...I won $500.00 Friday night.

                        The next winnerwill be my favorite too. Green laugh

                            I also like the ones where you have to match the numbers or get a symbol.  Somehow I can get a lot of big winners with those ones.
