      Sorry about that, but the good news is with all the losers you have been getting lately the winners are right around the corner! 

       

      I bought 3 new $20 to start....# 2 nothing, #3 nothing and then #4...winner!   $20.00 x 10 !!!!!!  = $200 bucks!

      so what do I do? You know it, go to all different places buying only the $20 tickets, spend the $200 and won

      #37 $50      #41 $20    #43 $40  and #48 $20  a total of $130......good luck!   I'm going back out to buy more:)

          Have you guys seen the odds for the new $20.00 game? Not good! One in 3.5, I believe.

          That's almost the same odds as a $10.00 ticket. If they're going to come out with a ticket that's twice as expensive, why can't they make the overall odds something like one in 2.5 - with the chances of winning smaller, $500.00 prizes 1 in 700, or something like that?

            I checked the odds and made a decision.  I quit.  The odds I feel are so stacked against us.  I went back out last night and bought random $500 worth of the new $20 ticket.  I have $210 to cash in today and I will be keeping the cash.  I have been playing for many years but the NY Lottery is getting so greedy I feel I can't wni anything anymore.  I actually have been winning, $600, $600, $300 x 3 and some little winnings but I feel like a loser in the end when I sit here with empty pockets.  Good Luck to you all, for me, the thrill is gone.

                looks like NY state is using NY lottery as a means to close the budget gap and distributing less and less money and keeping more and more. Very sad, what they need to do is to give out maximum money in prizes which will attract more people to try their luck.

                  Dude just from your posts on this site it seems like you must've blown 20-30k easily, I don't blame you for not chasing anymore.

                  A Set for life jackpot was sold in Staten Island 2 days ago, funny thing is I bought tickets in SI that day but not on Hyland Blvd unfortunately :(

                    Oh and I bought three of the new $20 tickets from a vending machine and hit 10X with a $10 under it (#05). I took $20 of the 40 profit and bought four $5 Money For LIFe and hit $20 on the last, leaving me once again with $40 profit. NOt a bad day overall ..

                      gotta agree ny scratchers are some of the worst ive played. you can tell the difference simply by comparing how many times florida players hit $500 vs ny players. 

                      skeptics recent results caused me to go on a manic buying spree in ny but nothing good came out of it. have not played for close to a week now....

                      2014 Highest Winner: $500

                        yeah they aren't that great I agree

                        but I mainly play to hit a jackpot and NY has some of the best

                          The scratch off jackpots used to be a 1 in a million chance, now they increased it to 1 in over 2 million chance.  Check out the odds.

                              I feel the same way about the PA Lottery - unless you get very lucky, it's hard to win anymore. I wonder if NY and PA use the same distributor? If my senior citizen parents benefited more from the money I give to the state, then I'd feel better about giving all I've given. The 2 states are paying out less than they did before to the Lottery players.
