Saturday morning, I  purchased one $2.00 “Extra” ticket. The attendant inserted the numbers from a completed 5 table slip. The number 8 matched one of the 5 numbers on the 1st table.

The ticket reveals the following:

EXTRA $1.00

EXTRA

08 - $25

17 - $50

20 - $1

23 - $25

39 - $25

TOTAL = $2.00

“You may choose either the $1 or $2 EXTRA! option. Prize amounts vary based on the purchase price, ranging from $1 to $250 for $1 EXTRA!, and from $2 to $500 for $2 EXTRA!”.

Am I correct when saying since $2.00 was the wager, the $25.00 prize should become $50.00?

    Did you play  $1 for the Pick 5 and $1 for the extra, making $2, or $1 for the Pick 5 and $2 for the $2 extra? From your post it sounds like those are the options.

    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

        Illinois used to have Extra! on Pick 3 and 4. It worked like this, the ticket was $1 and the Extra was $1, so if you played 124 and the Extra! you'd get something like this:

         EVE Straight Box

        124

        Extra!

        3 6 8

        $1 $5 $10

        and if any of your number had matched the Extra numbers you'd win that dollar amount.They had to line up, in other words the matching digit had to be in the same order.

        Then they dropped Extra! and replaced it with Numbers Now. With that one you got a Pick 3 or 4 "drawing" right there at the terminal. Suppossedely, if you won on it it made the terminal play the lotto jingle and bells and chimes would go off. Every clerk I asked about it said they never once saw anyone win it and never heard the terminal go off like that.

        They don't have it anymore.

          From the Arizona Lottery site:

          EXTRA! is an add-on game that lets you win instantly when you purchasea ticket for Pick 5. All EXTRA! numbers are automatically selected bythe computer.

          When you purchase a ticket for The Pick or Pick 5, check the EXTRA! boxon the selection slip or tell the retailer you want to purchase theEXTRA! option. EXTRA! may be played on every board on the ticket withan additional $1 or $2 charge for each board.

          You may choose either the $1 or $2 EXTRA! option. Prize amounts varybased on the purchase price, ranging from $1 to $250 for $1 EXTRA!, andfrom $2 to $500 for $2 EXTRA!.

          Overall odds of winning an EXTRA! prize are 1 in 3.8.

          HOW TO WIN

          Match your EXTRA! numbers to the numbers you selected for The Pick orPick 5 drawing. If any of the numbers match, you may claim your prizeimmediately. Match more than one number, and win even more! When theretailer pays your prize, you will receive a replacement ticket withthe same numbers you selected for The Pick or Pick 5 drawing.

            Virginia's got it too on the Pick3 but they call it Boost.

            For an extra buck you get 5 extra 3 digit numbers on the ticket.

            If your number matches one of those exact, you win.

            Personally, I ain't never won jack on that. Not even close.

            Only played it a couple times. Never again.

              To get specific, I played 17 "boards" and $2 EXTRA for a total of $19.  I gave a $20 bill, and received $1 in return.  The board consisted of numbers 03 08 12 24 32 

              The mistakes I discovered is the attendent keyed 5 numbers on the EXTRA ticket.  Making an error of keying number 6 instead of number 8.  Number 8 hit, not number 6. $1 for the five numbers, which decreased the value of EXTRA to $1.

              I advised the errors, and only received $25.  I contacted the lottery office by email, and requested their position regarding the mess up. 

              >tiggs sister lives in Surprise Az and she says they have the worst lottery ever..She said they don't even show the draw on TV is this true?..It is all computer right?

              I have not attempted to watch the drawing on TV.  It is displyed on computer.

              Did that...

                  Born loser? Yeah probably but it could be worse. I could live in Kentucky.

                  I have to count my blessings on that one.
