Thanks omiller315!  Yeah its nice to find anything over the cost of the ticket these days.
I remember a year or two ago buying $20-30 of tickets a day and hitting $100 at least once a week
if not $400,$500. Good tickets are hard to come by anymore. Good luck to you!

I know what you mean. Your money at least lasted longer. I know in the other thread someone complained about all the crying about losing. Well those of us who played long enough can see the trend and how it drastically changed. Ultimately it is on us to stop playing since they are worse, but I guess we just have to temper expectations.

            Yep, love the colors - does this mean there will finally br a good ticket out there? Recent history isn't promising, but I'try try a couple.

                Naughty That's not so bad...I've snagged some good prizes in the past at worse odds than that. 1/12,000, 1/6,000, 1/3,000

                omg...I'm sick right now...just had a chance to see the new $2 ticket. Yellow...What? Aw, now, that's just not going to work for me.

                If this turns out to be one of the games that gets extended due to 'popularity' among players, I'll be surprised.

                  I will of course have to try them, but not expecting much. Odd that Harley is out this week. I remember housesitting for my dad this time last year when the $5 Mustangs came out. Wonder if it is coincidence or not. Think I am going to take a new approach on tickets. Kinda like the casino. I will pockets the wins and only play with new money. I will see how that works vs throwing back my winners. That way I am not over spending witb money I could use elsewhere. We shall see.lol

                      Had some good luck tonight after a horrible week on scratch offs.
                      I bought 20,$1 royal riches tickets and no. 189 was worth. $500!
                      I had 3 other much smaller wins as well. $2,$5,$1 I still am in a little bit
                      of shock. Never expected to hit for $500. I hit $1,000 two years ago on triple
                      fortune a $1 ticket, but its been a while for something good!

                          Hi, my name is John.... and I am a scratch-a-holic.   just wanted to drop by and introduce myself to everyone.  hailing from Conshohocken... just west of Philadelphia.  usually throw a couple bucks in a machine here and there.... today for instance.  $100 bucks.  $250 winner from a $20 "Winner Take All"  but as we all know, these stories don't  always have a happy ending.  look forward to talking shortly. 

                          Be good!

                          John

                            Has anyone else noticed how drastically the payouts on the new scratchoffs have changed? The top prizes are non existent anymore fewer than 400-500

                            $1,000 tickets on the new games ? That is absolutely horrible. They throw in crappy $10 -$20 winners to sub for the big ones anymore. I have to say it

                            pisses me off to no end. I would invite anyone to look at the number of $1,000 winners on tickets like big money and some older $5 tickets and compare the

                            number of bigger winner $400 and up to the crap they are putting out now. Yes the odds are still the same, because the amount of smaller prizes or winners

                            still keep the odds on the back of the ticket true. I will say it again Im disgusted with pa tickets anymore, I think they finally lost my free money to toss

                            around on these $5-$10 winners which are a waste of time. Im putting my money in pick 3 to robb them of what they taken from me. Thanks to who ever

                            reads this I felt the need to vent.

                              scratch offs are money makers for PA. I play occasionally  because of impulse and hope of winning. I think they should have large prizes and whole lot of medium payouts of $500, 250, 100 winners and none of this get your $20 back. I rather just lose the $20 instead of ,thanks please try again. Or I'll just rather play $20 on a 3 digit number and hit for 10G with 1: 1000 odds. Scratch off odds 1: 1000 wins measly $250. Anyway you look at it, PA wins. Just spread the wealth to more players. Thanks
