I bought 2 books of lucky times 20. 30 tickets 600 bucks. There are still 48 top prizes left and chances are 1 in 6000.

The first book I got back 340. 1 ticket won 100 dollars and the rest small.

The second book I got back 300. 2 tickets won 50 dollars and the rest small.

Then I purchased 2 books of Cash Spectacular. odds are 1:2.40.

30 tickets per book. 1 book I got back 440. 

The other book I got back 380.

All tickets were either 40 or 20 dollar winners.

Terrible Terrible Terrible.

    hoops78 - welcome to Lottery Post...and good job working with the 20$ scratchers.  RI scratchers are tough.  even though the posted 'odds' are seemingly kind... I have never had great luck with them.  How do you do with the Mass scratchers?

      In theory they werent super bad. Typical PA books on $20 bring back $300. If I buy books I go into it thinking " Am I ok with losing half my money"?. I figure if I am ok with it, then everything else is a bonus.  I like your odds though. The 48 top prixes that are left. What is the dollar amount? On our new $20 ticket. 1 in 6000 is the odds for $1000. $10K is 1 in 400,000. $100K is 1 in 600,000 and 1 Million is 1 in 1,2000,000.

        im not sure of the odds on each individual prize because they dont list them. I called about the 20000 prize because that is the top and they said its about 1 out of 6000. But I have not had any luck at all.

        I have scratched countless 20 dollar scratchers and 10 dollar scratchers and the most I have won on a single ticket was 100 dollars.

        Terrible luck.

          In the last week, I lost over 2 grand on 20 dollar and 10 dollar scracthers. Played out of same book too.

          Bought 2 books of 10 dollar scratchers. 30 tickets 300 dollars a book.

          Book 1 only won 160.

          Book 2 won about 280.

          Biggest winner again was 1 single ticket of 100 dollars.

          I can't seem to find the top tier prizes. Not even a 500 dollar winner.

          I probably scratched over 200 20 dollar scratchers with the biggest being a 100 dollars.

            I wonder if they lied. PA breaks down a PDF of all prixes per game and show the top 3 remaining prizes for each game. Wish they would show more, but hearing about Rhode Island I guess I should be happy.  YOur top prize on a $20 ticket is $20,000?

              Same way here. I do better when I buy 5 or so atr a time. Never profited on a book yet. In April I hit $1K and 2-$500. Before that my only win above $100 was back in 1997 and I play alot. Sorry for the loss, but hopefully with the decent odds, you will find that winner. Maybe buy a couple here and there. That way even if you only hit $100, its a break even type thing. I started mixing it up. I use to buy big in bulk assuming I had better chance at a big win. Never worked for me. Good luck and hopefully you will find that $20K. Save all your losers. At least if you win big, you can write it off on Income tax

                Harley Davidson tickets - what a thrill to match 5 spots all for a dollar each. I knew they had it in them but didn't think they'd actually

                stoop so low as to actually do it.

                Winning $1 5x's is not winning, it's an insult on a $5 ticket. Make it $5 or nothing at all.

                Brace yourselves PA players...I don't think the same is far off on a $20 ticket.

                The pyschology involved is pathetic...do they really think so little of us that they think we will be happy to win 5x's on a ticket for $1 for each win?

                PA lottery, you're pretty pathetic.

                  I played Black Diamonds (If I remember the name correctly) - $20 game with $20K top prize. Bought the last 13 and hit $200 twice and $50 and $25 twice. Went to another store and bought 16 of them and lost over $100 on those. Bought a Hot Summer Cash $10 ticket and won $200 on # 029. Bought a couple $5 games and won $50 about 4 times and finally got 5 Cash Spectaculars and won $40 3 times and $20 once. The clerk said its impossible to win more than $40 on that game now I see why from your roll results. Pushed my luck at other stores and lost everything back. I found the worst ticket to be 20 times Lucky.

                  2014 Highest Winner: $500

                    when was this James? Are you talking about RI? I thought you lived in Florida. I just  called the lottery to get some odds and stats. 

                    There are 2 500,000 prizes in the cash spectacular with 1 already claimed. There are about 800,000 tickets printed in that game.

                    The lucky times 20 has 48 top prizes left and they printed 309,000 tickets. Odds seem good but i cant find the winner anywhere. never won more than 100 dollars on that ticket and lost a fortune. There  are over 1100 different places here that sell tickets though so its a needle in the haystack.

                    There is also a 2 dollar ticket topaz 7 that has 1 more top prize of 17,777 left. He said they are down to the last 3 percent of tickets with about 200 rolls or so left.

                      hoops, do like i do..i won a 100 bucks 3 times on scratchers, but they came from a store where a 1 million dollar scratcher was bought. I drive where certain demographics live or in richsey areas and buy tickets. Of course a 4 million dollar sractcher was sold right near lottery headquarters. a million dollar scratcher was bought at oak island in nc. what types of people live on islands?  The small ticket winners can be placed anywhere, but the big scratchers are in richsey areas or where certain demographics live. Did not the lady in rhode island buy the winning 300 mill ticket in a richsey area of rhode island??...there you have it!!

                      i reserve the right to be a conspiracy theortist!

                        A few months ago when I traveled to Mass. I stopped at a Stop And Shop and got them out of a vending machine. The top prizes suck but the odds are much better than Florida.
