I have won $40, $75 and $150 on this game, and I am still ahead, but just barely. I had all of those wins prior to ticket printing 842-200000-000. After 842-200000-000, winners have been far and few between. It is the ticket number printed on the back. I have had only one $15 winner after that number, and the rest have been either $5, a free ticket or $10. Up until that ticket number, my profit was $155, and that accounts for the ticket price. I lost $50 on that game alone, and I played it as usual. On tickets over 842-200000-000, my loss is $105. That brings my total to $50 ahead, which is OK, but could be much better.
Prior to 842-200000, you could count on it being at least a break even game. I went the longest without losing any more than 4 in a row, usually at least one winner every 3 tickets, and it would usually be $15 or $25, and they ranged from $10 to $25 on average winners. It took me 7 tickets to get to a winner today, and it was the $15 winner. I say the game is mostly dead.
And my recommendation? If you can, look on the back of the ticket and see what the full ticket number is. If you can't do that, buy just one. If it is after 842-200000-000 or greater, I would walk away. You will never break even if you chase your winners after that number. I say let them sit on the shelves and rot. Let them lose their asses on that game. Trust someone who has bought over 125 of these tickets. Save yourself a lot of heartache, grief and suffering. Most of all, save your money. There are better games out there. I think they get there overall odds and when the tickets first come out, they have more frequent winners that pay more. Teach them a lesson.
Please let me know about your experiences, especially if you have done good on these numbers. If there are any grand prize winners on here, I would love to hear you story, and would love to hear the book number that you won from. I don't remember seeing any $250,000 top prize winners on GA lottery website..
