I am starting to think when a new scratcher is introduced, the most people will get is a break-even ticket or perhaps a couple of dollars above that. In my personal expereinces it seems like the only time I scratched "big" (or at least what I considered big >$200) it was when a game had been out for at least 2 months.

I know that there may be somewhere here and there that may "luck up" and have a modest win, on new scratch offs, but I think the lottery kinda makes sure they make so much money back before they start to putting some substantial "winners" out there.

I don't  know...but what's you guys' take on this? What?

     When a new game comes out i.e. the Virginia new $5 million dollar club ($20 dollar scratcher) its just a waste of time and money thinking there going to instantly give someone $1 or $5 million off the bat to promote the new game....

    The Real Truth???  When a big new game comes out the first batchs will be nothing but short change

    i.e. the new $5 million dollar club only had a few $1000 and $4000 dollar winners the first few weeks, now there are a few $10,000 tickets going out that are being claimed.  The lottery wont print a big money ticket on a new game until they see the sales of the game is going good which is normally within 2-4 months into the game. 

    The game will get one or two $1 million dollar winners within the first 2-4 months and then slowly print that $5 million dollar ticket and either send it to a store where someone is gonna claim it fast or send it to a country store where the ticket may sit for god knows how long.

     Playing a new game right when it comes out and sinking alot of money into it is throwing money out the window, and basically that sums up playing scratch games all together!


    Play safe !

      I have seen many good size winners in the first few books of new scratch off tickets. From the way i see it, they put decent winners in there, so the player keeps on playing. Largest from the first book of a ticket was $10k, on number 21 ( out of 50 ).
