I played an EZmatch today, nada. The prizes were $5, $20, $50, $100 and $500. When I saw that I didn't have the $5 I knew it was toast.

I played QP ticket at 12:26 and got (changing the numbers a little)

08  09  16  27  37

played another QP a few hours later, at a different place, and got

09  10  16  27  37 

Scared

Thank you guys for the info on the EZmatch odds. I don't know how that comes out to 1:4.89 overall (I'm sure somone here does) but I think the retailer told Gr8ful1 right, put the extra dollar on the jackpot.

Since the odds of hitting the jackpot are 575,757 to one odds of 210,000 to one to win $500 aren't too enticing.

Extra! didn't last and Numbers Now were dropped, I wonder if EZmatch will be too.

Good Luck tonight on the $850,000.

        From what I've learned in this thread about the odds on the EZmatch I think I'll only play it with winnings from Scratchers or Lucky Day Lotto tickets.

        Good Luck ILLotteryman, IL LDL players.

            At least you won $1 with 35 and 36.

            Looks like the EZmatch walked right between the raindrops - 33,  EZ 34, 35, 36.

              I won $5 on EZMatch yesterday matching the number 8. I don't have all the numbers from yesterday since I already cashed in the ticket.

                  Bought EZMatch ticket today, no winner. It's interesting to note that I wanted to buy 1 draw for the next three days on the same ticket and I wanted EZMatch for each date, but it only gave me one EZMatch for the whole ticket!

                  My numbers: 08 18 33 35 36

                  EZmatch numbers:
                  05 - $100
                  13 - $500
                  25 - $50
                  26 - $50
                  29 - $100

                  Good luck everyone!

                    Maybe the terminals aren't set up to match the playslips yet. Each game A, B, C, etc...has a box for EZmatch but from what I've seen it will only do one Ezmatch no matter how many games played, and like you said, no advance play.

                    I'm trying to play it only off of winners but today where we play they had a ticket up - $100 Winner! - someone had won $100 on the EZmatch - # was 39 - this morning and cashed it right then and there.

                    So that lured me in but no EZmatch.

                    My wife picked up a couple of the new Vacation Cash scratcherst. Turns out they are a tic tac toe game, with a twist, line up three Xs or three Os - or three pairs of sunglasses or money bags.

                    How to Play
                    Get three X's in the same row, column or diagonal line, win PRIZE shown. Get three "money bag" symbols in the same row, column or diagonal line, win DOUBLE the PRIZE shown.

                    Overall Odds: 4.74 to 1

                    Game Highlights

                     

                    • Win Up to $2,00
                    • Sunglasses = double prize shown

                      The new Casino Crossword game looks interesting, did she pick up some of those too? That's good that someone won $100 on the EZMatch but how rare is that you know?

                      I was talking to a lotto retailer today and they said themselves that the EZMatch is the biggest waste of money "garbage" they called it. :)

                        Not sure how frequent it is for someone to win $100 but think it's not common. I wonder exactly how they determine the odds on sometghing like EZmatch.

                        The Illinois Lottery website says the odds on the Casino Crossword are 1 in 3.93, which is relatively on the low end of scrathcer odds for $1 to $3 games, but for us it seems breaking even on crossword (or bingo) scratchers 9is about the best we've done, and not often.

                        Seems like there's big winners on them over in Missouri though.

                            I guess I misunderstood EZMatch until today.  I thought that if one of the numbers listed on your ticket for EZMatch matched one of the numbers in the daily drawing that you won the prize, boy what a sucker I am!  This game is a total sham, I'll be putting my extra $1 towards the jackpot from now on.  The only positive I can see with EZMatch is if they take all of those extra dollars and add them into the jackpot thus making the grand prize grow larger and more quickly.  Let those suckers (like me) throw their cash away and pump up the jackpot.
