    You haven't seen it because it hasn't come out yet. It comes out tomorrow (friday)

        If you signed up on the CA Lottery to receive their montly newsletter, it stated the new CA Lottery $10 Scratcher game: $250 Million Cash Spectacular will start in October.  It has "31" $1,000,000 top prizes so you can access the website to find out how many of the larger winning tickets are left to win and how many were claimed.  However, since this a relatively new game, it willl not have that information available yet.  I am certainly going to try my luck at this new scratcher.

        One who loses today, can win tomorrow--GOOD LUCKHurray!

          I had to go to 6 stores to find em because they were sold out at each one i went to. the 6th store i went to the lady in there hadn't opened up the package from the lottery so i bought two from a brand new pack. First ticket i won another ticket which lucky for me i can just exchange it for $10 at the grocery store. and the second ticket i won $15. So i made a $5 profit.

            I bought $140 total so far and won one $20, $15 and one free ticket.  Net loss of $95 so far. 


            Does anyone know how many is in a single book?  I've been buying these from the automated machines from Safeway.  Wonder where else I should go for more luck.

              there are 50 tickets in a book

              ive bought $200 worth so far and ive won one $50, $25, $20 and  $15, so down $90, ive talked to some of the clerks where i normally buy tickets and none of them has seen a winner over $200, im taking a break from scratchers, i have better luck on the fantasy 5 and pick 3

                I feel robbed.  I went to an automatic machine at a CVS and got the following:

                $60

                # 4 to #9 were all losers.

                 

                I went back and put another $40 in there

                 

                got #1, 2 and 0 then it said sold out.  I'm guessing #3 may have been on the display case?

                 

                In any case, #1 was a winner, only a free ticket.  $90 spent and only got $10 ticket back.  GL to you all but I think I'm done with this game.  I know no one bought any between my buys.

                  So I couldn't stop myself from buying these.

                   

                  I ended up buying 5 rolls last night with a friend.  Our worst roll was $275 and best roll was $450.  Our net loss was $770 after purchasing 5 full rolls.  Our biggest winner was $100.  Just an FYI if there are others out there looking to buy full rolls.

                    So far I bought about 100 of these here and there.

                    Hit $100 3 times and $200 1 time but nothing higher and am about break even overall, better return than I've gotten with our $5 scratchers.

                    CA lotto seems to be very excited about this game with their back to back press releases. So I'd imagine that this introductory $10 scratcher is a sign of more to come, possibly following along the lines of other state lotteries with more higher denomination scratch games.
