        All good just giving you hard time. I just think you'd get a better response by saying "please"..That goes for anything in life.

         

        Anyways, the best person to ask is probably "James1"...He's bought several rolls and will be able to give you the breakdown

            I bought a book in Tennessee several years back.  It was a $10 Holiday ticket with overall odds of 1:2.4ish...  Spent $300 on the roll; however, only got $140 back.  Highest win was $30.

            How are you going to win if you don't play?

              The rolls that do better are the ones that have more prize tiers.

              For example Gold Rush has only 8 tiers while FMC has 15. I have failed on both but GR you REALLY need that $500 winner.

              I enjoy the $3 dollar rolls like Flamingo Bingo where there are 24 tiers = higher chance to hit a larger prize or 2.

              2014 Highest Winner: $500

                I bought a 5.00 roll of Bucs tickets  acouple weeks ago.  I missed ticket 000 so 295.00 and got back 155.00.  I can post the exact ticket numbers that won if you really want to see it, but it was every 4 or 5 tickets won 10 here , 5 there, and a couple 20.00's.

                  Man that Bucs ticket was a rip off. Playing it one day and never again. Im not surprised you lost money on it.

                    You are so right James1,  All sports scratch offs are the worst rip off.  I took my chance at Orlando Magic too and got nuthin.  I'm boycotting NFL this year if they don't go on strike, I'll only be watching College sports.  Go Kentucky for FINAL FOUR>

                    I keep thinking, if only I took all that money I spent on 5.00 sports tickets and bought Spectacular or a 20.00 ticket instead.  Plus, stupid NFL, they pay their players Millions,  Owners make billinons and their lousy 5.00 ticket is only worth 100,00 while a ridiculuos Gold Goose Doubler was worth 250,000.   NFL should have been happy to create some kind of contract with the lottery commission that it would throw tons of prizes out for the fans and MATCH all sales with donations to Florida Education!!!!!

                      I've boughten three rolls, all $10 tickets here in New York.

                      They costed $500 a piece

                      Set for Life: $365

                      Platinum Payout: $345

                      3,000,000 Richer: $260 I think

                      It's a bad idea to buy one unless you have cash to spare and are convinced you'll get a top tier prize.

                        I think it has to do with the 2nd chance drawings. They have made the cash prizes worse. But then again I thought Cruise 4 Cash was decent.

                            By prize tiers, do you mean more levels of prizes like 100,000 (top), 5,000, 1,000, 500, 100, 50, 30, 20, etc?


                            Tennessee is more confusing because their website only shows the very top 3, but I guess if you scratch a ticket it will show you (almost) all the prizes.

                             

                            If this is the case then I would think the $20 tickets have the most prizes but again, its confusing because the TN Lottery doesnt exactly go out of its way to reveal all odds and prizes...
