    I feel for you...I did the same thing today..no big winners, the most I got on one tickert was $40...spent $500 got back $275

     

    when I won $600 & $300 on this ticket I didn't buy the roll..I bought a few, scratched, bought more, scratched & BINGO! I got it, more than once.

     

    After today's loss I am now saving my money for the twenty dollar coming out on 10/4/2011

    good luck

      yea no more rolls for me until the new $20.....i already told the store clerk to hold all the new $20 rolls when he gets his first package with the new tickets. he told me he gets 3-5 rolls.....$1,000 per roll lol....when i buy rolls i mostly just scratch it at the store and scan it...if the lottery fails me again then i am DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      do you guys think the first few rolls of the new tickets are luckier or after a few months???

      i will post the results when the new tickets arrive...good luck guys

        I've only gotten stars which mean the same thing, just different symbol. Never actually gotten the "10x" though I have gotten many 2x, 3x, and 5x--Usually $25-$50 winners.

        edit: I bought 4 $5 triple 7 tickets and did very well. First ticket I won $10 with the number matching on bottom, second I got three 7's in a row for $15 dollars (tripled prize of $5) and on the last ticket I hit 3x and won $30. Overall a $35 profit, about <snip> time.

          I do think they have more winners when they first come out, to kinda create a "buzz" about the tickets. 

          I will never buy another roll again.  You spend too much and the winnings never add up to what you spent.

           

          I  am going to wait for the $20 ticket...and I will use whatever money I have saved  (hundreds) to go along my ave and buy 1 or 2 here and there until I buy  about 30 tickets ($600) worth.  I am going to bring them home and enjoy scratching!  If I win great, if I lose, no more NY Lottery scratch tickets for me! 

          If you check the ny lottery page u can see they changed the odds on the tickets and made it harder to win any thing decent.

           

          Good luck I will let you know how I make out with the $20 ticket on Oct 4th!Lep

              Where have the odds changed? All of them look the same to me ...

              If you click on the $10 set for (this ticket has been around for years) click the tab "chance of winning" to see the odds of winning

              $   10       1 in    11.90

              $   50       1 in    25.00

              $ 100       1 in   131.25

              $ 500       1 in   1,750

              overall odds of a win on the set for life   1 in 3.95

              if you do the same for the newer released $10 Monopoly ticket and click the "chance of winning " tab, the odds are

              $    10      1 in 16.67         ***see the difference to win $10?

              $     50     1 in 25.00            same odds for $50

              $   100     1 in 630.00     ****take a look at this....131.25 vs. 630.00   that means you're spending a lot more to win the same $100

              $    500     1 in 5,600     *********  to $500...1 in 5,600   when it used to be  1 in 1,750  that is unbelievable!

              overall odds for monopoly      1 in 3.96

              I have been playing scratchoffs for years....used to win a lot...$2,500   $1,000  $500  several times

              now I have to spend a lot more money to win $600   $300   $100              Good luck

                I see what you mean, well the monopoly ticket does have a raffle so that could be why odds are crappy in comparison to set for life. The new triple million ticket has pretty reasonable odds at least..

                  the Triple million is

                    $10          1 in 14.29

                     $15         1 in 16.67

                     $20         1 in 20.00

                     $50         1 in 50.00

                    $100        1 in 484.62

                     $600       1 in 1680

                   

                  overall 1 in 3.75

                   not really that great in comparison to the older set for life
