Personally, after research, the best looking tickets are in Florida due to the odds and prizes, what is your opinion? Don't just judge by where you live.

      You can ask the PA people on here and we will all tell you that it is not PA. According to posts I would have to say Florida, but not sure the volume of tickets purchased by Florida people here vs other states. Florida also seems to have more posters, so that could make things seem better also. Shop owner next to work said he use to have a shop in Georgia and said they seem really well. He said PA sucks and so far this holiday he hasnt had a single claim form(over$600)

        If you ever visit Tennessee do not play their's.

        They suck big time. What i see on here Fla has the best scratch winners.

        Finding a 100 dollar winner here in TN is rare.

          Mass pays players back the highest percentage. Not just saying this because I live here. Google it!

            Florida does not even make the top 10.....

             

            Massachusetts boasts that it's the "most efficient" lottery in the nation, paying out 71.9% of its games' sales as prizes, the most of any state and far above the norm of 59%. Nearly 70% of its ticket sales are in the form of instant scratch-off games with names like Winner Wonderland ($5 ticket, $250,000 prize, 1-in-1,008,000 probability) and $10 Million Hold 'Em Poker ($10 ticket, $10 million prize, 1-in-80,640,000 probability). These tickets return 70% to 72% of sales to winners.

              I vote GA. I live in TN but GA has higher payouts and I like that. I like it alot.

              Passing thru GA on I-75 last weekend I hit $100 on Jingle Jumbo Bucks.

                Their $20 tics are very good but the cheaper ones not so much

                2014 Highest Winner: $500
