OUCH!! Just saw the review on the New " HOT \$100,000" PA Game. OKay lets do easy math here. THere are over 40,000 Lottery retailers in PA, of that only 800 tickets in this game will have a prize between 1k and 10,000. You would have to pinpoint within a 200 mile radius and get lucky that one of them MIGHT at a given time have the winning ticket. With gas the way it is, I just dont have it in me to drive around to find the needle in the haystack. They are skimming the bottom of the barrel with how many larger prizes are out there, seems the PA lottery is getting stingy with its payouts, they always get Lower in prize category and the amount of winners that can claim for the games. I am currently staying away from the scratch offs and this lastest batch of new tickets just proves that its best to save my money....(yes I know it only takes one ticket) but honestly folks if that were the case we would have all won the grand prize by buying just one ticket....that just isnt going to happen...

I agree and I think this website helps us see it. How many of us are on here and buy how many tickets?? Now figure out how many decent winners of \$1k and over we find.. I know James has one, but there might only be a few more who have.  Heck winning \$1K would be nice, but it isnt like I could retire and I am sure it wouldnt put me ahead of the state.

dr65 does the best in PA - I am happy she is in a good zone for tickets. It seems for most, though, payouts have gone down.

I found the new tickets at one of the 5 Wawas I went to. Not a great start, but a couple wins:

Hot \$100,000 - #000-002 all lost

Cash Up - #000 lost, #001 won \$3

Electric 8s - #008 lost, #009 won \$2, #010 lost

It seems in the past you'd do better right off the bat in the rolls.

I spent \$25 today and got a free ticket! Yea! Well, I beat yesterday.

Bought 5 7Ups and #008 won a free ticket

#055 Diamonds & 7s lost (next time I see #055 on a \$10 ticket I might as well throw it out - it just never wins)

#013 Bingo lost

Those free tickets are a thorn in the side. I got 10 Whole Lotta 100's #'s 112 - 121 and every other ticket

was a free ticket....how is that possible? That's BS. I found a green 7 on the 7up #003 and it won a big \$7.

Incredible. That's the 2nd or 3rd time I got a green 7 and had that happen. (\$7 total)

I don't know how the new \$2 tickets are doing, I purposely stayed away from them considering the smack

in the face they presented us with on Whole Lotta 100's and 7ups. I know there have been some \$100

winners reported but I haven't run across them.

The Pure Gold have returned to insulting payouts...\$10 gold bars and that's about it. Lucky to find a play

field that produces anything when a gold bar is present...if you do, it's another \$10 to match the pathetic

bonus area payout.

I did find a Cherry Slots ticket #001 for \$50 and was shocked actually...I thought it read: \$5 like they nor-

mally do. The bill signs are designed so people miss them, I'm convinced of that.

I tried the new \$5 tickets - Hot \$100,000's - found a dollar sign on ticket #000 and won \$5 - at least PA

can't be blamed for being non-typical. My eyes aren't too bad but the symbols get smaller and smaller

it seems....I haven't found the moneybag yet but looks to me it could pass for the pineapple...and get

tossed.

I'm not complaining, I'm relating. To those players who consistently find little or no wins, it is defeating.

I could be my own thread when it comes to instant tickets, I play enough of them and know what I'm

talking about when I say the game has drastically changed. They can't wait to bring on the new ones but

the trouble is, for the last 4 releases now, they've been BOMBS. The good old days of excitement over

new releases is definitely a thing of the past. They stink..stinky payouts, bigger gaps, larger odds, decep-

tive games...you really have to be careful you don't throw a winner away.

Cash Fever dried up...the normal payout now is \$20...\$40 if you get lucky. They used to be the best

tickets around here and my favorite too. \$100 winners were common, now they're nearly extinct.

I found 2 \$100 winners on the 20x the Money in a few days or so....they were the same type: 4 winning

spots for \$25 each - total \$100. If I have to rank the ticket that you can count on, it is those. I've noticed

an increase in the past week of winners on all tickets...it was the 2 weeks BEFORE that where ALL the

tickets were crappy. Hopefully there's a real turnaround and the better results of the past week continue.

I also found a Big Winner Spectacular that matched 10 spots but the win was \$50...see the trend? That

one was ticket #061 but it wasn't the \$100 win for 10 spots as in the past.

I don't want to get anyone's hopes up but just thought I'd report things are changing lately again.

You have to decide to hang in there or hang it up for awhile. I know some have said they're quitting and

that might be the best route for awhile....or at least cutting down. I think I would definitely stay away

from the new games. They are about as good as the old ones....there isn't anything special about them

as far as winning more goes....PA just doesn't seem to do that anymore. It's a shame too.

All my big wins came from roll purchases. If i only bought rolls and not random tickets at the store id be ahead with the lottery.

Ahh, now see? In PA, my ticket, couple/few tickets at a time from bins/machines works for me. I've found the

winners like that often. I've just gone with that game plan and had very good results. Sometimes the ticket

that wins is the first one out, other times it's the second. There are times when it's neither the first or the

second and then I just move on, leaving the \$20's for another day. The \$5's I'll go up to 4 at a time or try

one of each of what they have there, the \$10's I'll go 1 at a time and go back to the one I want another of

depending on what my numbers and the play field numbers looked like or what ticket number I just played.

While I couldn't go the pack only way..I am still considering the 20x the Money pack. I think the one thing

holding me back is that I might like the pack idea once I've bought one and abandon the way that's working

now...I should just get it out of my system and go for it. I can definitely say that it will be the 20x the Money.

Hi, dr65! Thank you for both relating to players in long slumps like me and for offering some encouraging words. I've found 2 \$100s on Whole Lotta Hundreds, but you're right - lots of free tickets out there. At least the new \$2 game doesn't have a free ticket prize. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get a good 20x the Money, but I'll try some more. My limit on Big Winner Spectacular seems to be \$20, just like all the \$10 games. And Cash Fever used to be the game I turned to - but now I'd even rather try Extravaganza. So you know how bad they've been for me, too. I know I can't have any expectations for these new tickets, but I'll try a lot of them for one time today. If they don't produce, it's back to only \$20/\$25 per day. Which tickets have had the biggest increase of winners? I haven't seen that happen yet.

I agree. 20X will be my next pack if I decide to get one.

Went back to cash my tickets(\$10). Got one each of the new ones minus the \$1. I hit \$5 on 004 on Hot \$100,000. I saw Cash up was on ticket 45. I took my \$5 over to get a \$3/\$2 and talked to the guy. He said someone bought 002-031(30 tickets) and hit \$10/\$9 and \$3 on them. WOW.. \$90 to get back \$22. He told me he plays alot and hit \$400.00 the other day and a few thousand in the past. Shows how crappy the new tickets are also.

Today was absolutely horrible

Went out with \$300 to get a roll of High Roller, but while I was in the store I notice someone bought 15 Gold Rush off a new roll and scratch them right there. So i decided to wait around and the guy only got \$60 back. I thought instead of the roll of High Roller im gonna finish off this Gold Rush roll.

I bought the last 15 tickets for \$300. Had 7 straight losers to start off ... then # 007 won \$40. then every single ticket lost except # 000, a single match, I thought this one is gonna be a big one. Nope ! \$20 bucks ....

So folks, a \$600 roll of Gold Rush paid \$120 back !!! Its just become a big scam and im not feeding anymore money into the lottery.

As consolation got 2 Casino Action and 2nd ticket won \$50

I have a weird feeling about the re-release of the Gold Rush game. Something isnt right about these. Almost like they know they have all the Gold Rush players in love with this game, so they are witholding winners this time around.  In all of the times Ive played Gold Rush over the years, this is the worst luck Ive had with them. I have won \$500 many of times on this game in the past and since the new release haven't won anything more than \$100.

Definitely feels fishy this time

I have not even won \$100 on this game in months. Sure I have heard of a few \$500 winners but the odds are certainly not 1 in 174 !!

I also find the add very fishy. why do they keep on promoting a 7 year old game ? simple because its a cash cow for them.

This is my first post James. I've been reading the many posts on this forum and thought I'd drop a note. I've been playing scratch offs for a few years. My biggest win \$5000.00 was on the \$10 Spectacular. This ticket was tossed in the garbage without carefully reading the numbers. When I took another look, I saw where I did not scratch off number 8. Under it was \$5000.00. This was last year and I have won several \$1000.00 and \$500.00 prizes. I've been playing this game this year, buying a few rolls and random picking and only won \$100.00. I quit buying this game totally. On the Gold Rush \$20.00 tickets I have had good luck. In April I won \$500.00 6 times. Twice in one day !! I don't buy any rolls, just random buying at different stores, usually 10 or 20 tickets. The last few weeks my biggest win was only \$100.00. Seems like the \$500.00 winners have gone away.

Thanks for the read and Good Luck. In my opinion it's just luck as I've won on numbers from 000 - 20 and a few in the 20's. My last buys on Gold Rush was 10 tickets at a time from 000 - 10. \$100 a few times.

I am done with the new tickets. I mentioned the guy who bought 30 of the \$3 Cash Up with minimal luck. I got  2 and they lost. Thought I would get 5 more to take home. All 7 in a row were losers. Thought maybe if the pack was cold early, that it would make up for it late. I would constantly get 1 # in the double games and 2 #'s in the triple games really early. Meaning any # that would hit after would pay out, but all #'s lost. Unreal..
