Here in Texas I have been playing $500,000,000 Blockbuster since it came out on 05/18/09. There are 3 $2.5 MIL and 13 $1 MIL prizes left. Now there is a new $20 scratch-off that just started on 03/07/11, which is pretty much the same game with a new name, the $500 Million Frenzy with 10 $2.5 MIL and 40 $1 MIL prizes unclaimed. Both of these games have approx. 34,000,000 tickets.
When I play scratch-offs I stick with one game. But my question is would you quit the $500,000,000 Blockbuster and start playing the $500 Million Frenzy or would you just keep playing the $500,000,000 Blockbuster?
I might stick with the $500,000,000 Blockbuster game because my reasoning is that even though there are 13 top prizes left people have gone thru millions of these tickets helping pave the way for those last 13 winners remaining. I am not a statistician but my thinking is that playing the $500,000,000 Blockbuster still give me better odds due to people paving the way.
I know you can make a case for either game but if you had to pick one of them which game would play right now and why? I know lots of people like to play new games as soon as they come out but is that really a better strategy?
