PA has turned horrible. I said it earlier that I hate PA tickets and especially the Christmas ones and my opinion hasn't changed. Guy next to work said someone hit $250 on the $20 one but nothing else worth mentioning. My next fun money will def be the casino. Still havent gone this year, but will be alot more fun that PA's tickets have been.  Happy Birthday!!!

Thank You Omiller315..I hear you..they are just terrible anymore. I used to Love to play them..just the excitement of them, and now you don't even get thrilled anymore. I mean 8 $10 tickets in a row, and nothing..where is the fairness in that..even if the next one was a winner it probably was only $10 0r $20 dollars..they took all the fun out of their games that is for sure..It has been saving me a lot of money though..not playing...plus I hit quinto last week boxed so I have my little nest egg started again but not for scratch off's..that is for sure...

Everyone needs to complain to them..because that is still all you hear in the stores around here..how the tickets aren't like how they used to be...fun...

PA is only hurting themselves...

    Before there were casinos in PA the daily numbers and the scratch offs were all there was. (Not counting all the cherry master and poker machines in the bars.)

    When we all started to spend our money at the casinos instead of buying scratch offs, the state had to do something to generate money. Forget the FACT that they are making a KILLING off the casino revenues. The bean counters saw a decrease in scratch off money coming in.

    SO, what do they do? The same thing the casinos in AC did a few years ago when other states started to build their own casinos. They keep paying the big jackpots, they have to or people wouldn't play the slots, and cut back on the number of smaller payouts. They still have to pay out the top prizes but nothing says they have to pay out a ton of $100 or $250 or $500 winners.

    This CRAP started in PA around last Feb. or March. You used to be able to hit a $500 or even a $1000 winner if you played enough. Up until that time it WAS fun to play. You never knew when you might hit a $500 winner. NOW, if you hit one for $100 it's a big deal.

    I've hit a few of the $20 MM Christmas tickets in the past five days but nothing big. Today I bought 10 tickets in eight different stores. I hit the last ticket for $50 and that got me even for the day.

    1st....$20 winner

    2nd....$0

    3rd.....$40 winner

    4th.....$0

    5th.....$0

    6th.....$40 winner

    7th.....$0

    8th.....$50 winner

    9th.....$0

    10th...$50.00 winner

    A lot of darn work to break even. Until this Christmas ticket came out that $200 would have been GONE with nothing to show for it. I'm just glad I stopped for a pack of smokes at the last place.

    BTW, ONE and only ONE of those winners had the number 24 on it. The first ticket. I got my money back. I don't have to tell you all which numbers the losers had on them. It's like playing in a rigged game.Bang Head You know it's rigged but you do it anyway thinking you just might be the one that gets lucky. FAT CHANCE!!!!

      hey james this question is for you i will be in miami at the beginning of dec im planning on buying 5 rolls of billion dollar blockbusters i see they have alot of prizes remaining how much can i expect back at the minumum from each roll?

      I think they have little better returns than the $600 rolls which can pay as little as $150-200 back. I think at worst half back.

      2014 Highest Winner: $500

        Good Going on your wins AJ..I'm glad you broke even.

        You are so right though..that is why they aren't exciting anymore..and everyone is complaining..they are giving out very small payouts..yes they have to give out the jackpot eventually but that is like finding a needle in a haystack..  they are giving out very small payouts and everyone is noticing..

        I can't tell you the last time I saw anything over $50 win..you used to hit $100 or more easy..now it is like pulling teeth..and no one wants to play them when they are like that...playing 10 in a row to win $5 or $10...

        I still say it will hurt them in the long run..look how many people on here quit playing because of it..yes, they will always sale their tickets..but the people that play hard are really backing off of them now..

        because we know how they work now... 

        I don't know too many people who want to play $100 worth of tickets to win $10..you just feel like you don't have a chance now..and it isn't even worth chasing the win...

          Great Wins Old School !! I looked up two prize levels ($1,000 and $10,000) on Ohio $100K For Life and Floridas Gold Rush Tripler.

          Ohio $1,000 prizes LEFT to win - 11,114

          Gold Rush $1,000 prizes at ISSUE - 3,024

          Ohio $10,000 prizes LEFT to win - 278

          Gold Rush $10,000 prizes at ISSUE - 252

          Florida does not have the Ohio grid showing lower tier prizes left. So on Gold Rush we don't know what's left.

          If I were in Ohio I would sure be buying the $100K for Life. There are a LOT more $1K and possibly $10K wins compared to GRT.

          GRT had 76,860 $500K ticks at issue. Again, not knowing what's left I didn't compare to Ohio.

          Hope my math was right.

          Good Luck !!

          Skeptic,

           

          Thanks for looking up all that info! I meant to reply to you earlier. THANKS!!!   I'm back in Florida, but I had a couple days after seeing your post--and I stuck to the 100K/year games. Of course, I got a few Diamond Dazzlers too, since that was the game I hit the $500 on...hahaha.......  didn't have any luck in the last home stretch before leaving Ohio. Ended up chasing tickets at one store, and my luck kind of fizzled out! That's how it goes, though!!

          Now, my flight from Cleveland connected in Baltimore (Wore my Steeler jersey in both places of course) and in the Baltimore airport, I got a $20 game from a vending machine and hit a hundred! Got another game and hit $50 bucks!!!!  That was cool!!!! I'm undefeated in Maryland scratch-offs! Hahahaha....overall, in Ohio I probably broke even. 

          Again, thanks for your information on Ohio Scratch-offs... continued luck to you and all of us here!!!
