The CA Lottery started a new $10.00 Scratcher in October called: $250 Million Cash Spectacular; with 20 chances to win per ticket and 31 top prizes of $1,000,000.  Would any one buy a similar ticket if it was available in your home state? My father believes that no one would play this scratcher very much unless of course, it turned out to have a lot of big winners right away.  The payoff on the lower side is a free ticket or $10.00 and the higher payoff of course, is winning $1,000,000 on one scratcher ticket.   At this point, you never know unless you try just onceDance

          I didn't state they wouldn't play and judging from what I heard, several of the lottery retailers sold out the 1st day. I just wanted to know if other states offered the same, since this is a new game in Cali and as I said before, I will eventually try my luck.

            Honestly, I'd prefer 310 prizes of 100,000 but I think I'm in the minority lol.

              how about 31 prizes of $1,000,000.00 + 310 prizes of $100,000.00 Big Grin

                Purchased one of these today, won a free ticket. Redeemed the free ticket and won $15, used $10 of that for another ticket which didn't win me anything. I'll probably buy a few more of these in the near future. Anyone know the end date for this one?

                  They have a $50,000,000 Cash Spectacular here in Arizona and it is the only game I play. It's a $10 game as well but only has six (6) $1,000,000 top prizes. If I were in California I would most definitely play the game you mention. Normally these have overall odds of 1:3.4-3.6. It's not uncommon to play on "house money" for a week or two then lose it all. But the frequency in which I get back what I put into the game ($10) is often enough that it keeps my interest up.

                  Yes I would most definitely play that game of yours.
