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.

I am with you on this one. Pretty dry in Cape Coral, FL so to speak. I have had better luck with GA in a month than

the two years I am in Florida. Crazy

    After completing scratch-off EV analysis for some 10 states, the best out of those ten was CT and the worst was NJ. For CT, the expected value for the $20 tickets were over $16, whereas most other states was hard to find an EV of $15 or better. Illinois also has good tickets because their odds are lower than most states. This kind of data analysis for scratch-offs in AR, CA, CT, FL, GA, ID, IL, IN, NJ, and PA can be found on my site in my profile.

        Just gotta say... This poll blows! Wish people would stop voting on it and bumping it up to the top. This will be my one and only unintended bump post for this thread.

        What kind of list is this? Mostly East coast, and leaves off the two largest lottery states, but has, excuse me... New Hampshire? You got freakin' New Hampshire but no California and Texas?

        This poll is over a year old, and the person that posted it has never posted anything since. Let it scroll away into oblivion.

          Definetly not GA. I would have to say FL. I live in GA and rarely win, its pretty horrible.

            Im a new member to lottery post from Albuquerque,NM.Though i have not played the NM lottery scratch-off games consistently enough to develop any kind of winning strategy.I wanted to share some of my personal observations i have made over the last 10 years regarding NM lottery scratch-off big jack pot winners (12k,32k,45k,450k etc) i have personally known and met.The main thing i learned from my observations is this: All the big jack pot winners i have ever personally known have been NM scratch-off game winners,and i know many more casino players and also alot of sports bettors,poker players,horse bettors,powerball,megamillions and many other wagering games players who have never even come close to winning anything close to the jack pots the scratchers players i have known won.Sure i have seen on tv huge multi-million dollar jack pot winners at casinos and numbers pick lotteries but i have never personally known or met one these winners.I just wanted to know if any other forum members had experienced this to in their states.I look forward with the help of the members of this forum to learn how to become a winning player and hopefully share with you my winning jack pot posts.

                    Texas scratch offs are pretty decent.   I wish they'd do more second chance ones for prizes, not merchandise.

                      Connecticut has good scratch off odds comparing with NY or Califronia

                        I personally think North Carolina scratch-offs suck!  At least for me they do.  I never win more than 10.00.  The last time I did was years ago and I won 100.  I have yet to win more than that on scratch offs.  I can't afford to be an every day player so maybe that is part of the problem.

                        To God be the glory... 

                        When you're winning you're being blessed by Him!
