PA is a little better lately, but still not near what they were 2 years ago. I have gotten nothing over $200 in 3 years of playing in PA. Seems GA, FL, and MA have a lot of big wins. I chose MA.

    While you good folks say FL is...my luck lately wouldn't be quite so agreeable......I have heard that GA is the "cats meow" for scratch tix. I haven't played, so I am without first hand knowledge.

        There is a reason PA has only 2 votes - they randomize predictably, they screw whole areas, they don't put many big wins in, and they have bad odds.

          Lol - got a third vote just after I said that. I'd like that person to try playing here in my location - tickets are cold as ice.

            This it tough to answer seeing as how I've only played Mass tickets with the exception of a handful of RI tickets. However based on payouts + the available second chance drawings Mass has to be the best. I have a friend from Ark though and I love the second chance points for prizes system they have on top of 2nd chance games but they're overall payout I dont think is very good. So yeah I'm happy to be a Mass gambler. Now if only we can get a casino out here.

            Scratchies for the win!

              I've always done pretty well in Virginia personally, but never when buying a whole roll.

                  Georgia by far they do a great job in distributing tickets .Prizes are won quickly and new games flood the market every month.

                        Hey Evil! I just moved back to VA from FL and I live in southwest VA, rural coal mining country and the scratch offs are brutal here. I faired pretty well in Jacksonville and miss playing the tickets. I think they have a serious distribution problem here. Even the retailers say so. I used to buy $20 tickets like crazy in FL but I have to put in serious thought now so much that I play Pick 3 now. Lol, just my opinion but not sold on VA.

                            I have to drive 1 hour to play the lottery. I am trying tickets from $2 to $20 but the most I've won has been $25 on a $20 ticket.

                              it varied but GRT was the one I hit $500 on the most.
