Has anyone ever seen a JACKPOT on 5MJ with more than $2.00 in all spots? I wonder if a JACKPOT with $20 exists for a $500 win or maybe even with $200 for $5000 win or other combinations. Imagine getting a JACKPOT with $200,000 in all spots.

Yes, Malloc,

I have seen a winning ticket with Jackpot with all $200 and $20.

I just had a Jackpot but it was $2.00.

They should not do this. They should just put $50 instead.

    I agree. I've probably gotten 6-8 JACKPOTs with $2.00 all. First time I got it I almost fainted until I scratched the $2 under it.

      They should keep the Win All symbols to the $3 and $5 games, it makes you feel you won a lot on those denominations with 10-15 spots even if the prize amount for each spot is $1, not so much for the $10 and $20 games.

      I've seen a $4000 prize amount on the $20 game, but I have not seen a $100,000 winning ticket screenshot posted. There could be a possibility for JACKPOT for that, but usually high tier winners a single number match or single multiplier. I think there is a $50,000 prize amount (not a possible total prize value), so for the $100,000 winners it could be for 2 spots of $50,000 each?

      I have seen JACKPOT for $50, $500, and $5000. Thus only appearing for $2, $20, or $200???

      I never seen a $1 or $4 prize amount, so $25 or $100 wins will not be part of JACKPOT.

        The $4,000 prize was on a winning ticket posted at the store down the street from me; $25k winner with 5 $4,000 spots and 2 $2,500 spots. Have yet to see a 25 $4,000 "JACKPOT" on a ticket, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's out there.

            Thanks for clarifying about the $4000 prize point, I've only seen 3 of the $25k prize being single match. I was wondering how it would be used but it is interesting to know that the $25k prize can span 7 spots.

                    I have not seen it this morning but probably by tomorrow most stores should have it.

                    The $5 WoF game has 1 in 1.2 million odds for its $100K top prize.

                        I bought 10 of the $10 WOF (#5 to 14) at a gas station in San Jose that I frequent. I kid you not, 7 losers in a row followed by 2 tickets and another loser. 

                        I also bought a roll of the $10 LL with poor results. Out of 50 tickets, 13 winners...$275 back from $500. Only a single $100 win and mostly $15 wins and tickets.  This roll had 8 losers in a row at the end. 

                        Also who wants to bet the $10 LL TP will be won on July 4th. CA Lottery Scratcher wins seem to be won frequently on holidays. I.E. 5MJ won on New Years and another 5MJ won on Fathers Day.

                         

                        I think I'm done with scratchers for now. This will be the second time I will try to quit cold turkey. Wish me luck.

                          Tough break. I've had bouts of trying to give up scratchers myself for a while; longest was six months six years ago and again two years ago. 

                           

                          So, the WOF is just as crappy as the other tickets? It's the same freaking playstyle as the other $10 tix, save for the Crossword. 10X, 20X, win-all symbol, $100 spot...BORING!! And long stretches of losers as well, but that can be said of any ticket out there.

                            Cannot blame you or anyone for trying to quit, as mentioned by mrcraft recently, it seems like the heavy players on the main thread have reached their ends too.

                            These losses pile up so quickly to a point where it reaches several thousands over time, enough that a high tier prize cannot cover the losses. It is very painful to pursue a shot at a high prize Scratchers have been the most accessible way for non celebrity people to achieve wealth. It goes to show that players who play hardcore are not always rewarded for their play.

                            I have cut back considerably before joining this forum, the $10 1 Million Fortune was the last game I went big on. I sitll believe it is better lucky than to be good, so I will play with limited budget.

                            As far as the losing gap goes, the worst I've experienced is

                            $1 - 28 tickets from a 50 ticket buy

                            $2 - 17 tickets from a 30 ticket buy

                            $3 - 13 tickets from a 25 ticket buy

                            $5 - 16 tickets from a 20 ticket buy

                            $10 - 10+ tickets (bought 10, lost all of them, bought 10 more with 2 ticket gap, 1 ticket and lost 9 more)

                            $20 - 6 tickets from 10 ticket buy

                            I bought a 10 QP Powerball for tonight's drawing and won nothing. The 5 out of 5 prize still has not been claimed and rolled up to $4.2 Million. On the ticket it says Powerball and Super Lotto Plus Promotion Coming Soon.

                              Malloc good luck with going cold turkey. I believe you can do it.

                               

                              A few friends who were die heart scratcher players and they have cut down. They are the type of player who play $100.00 or more at a time and play a couple of times per week. No way I could do that and win something less than $100.00 or a ticket. Someone posted about the odds for the WOF $5.00 game being like Cash Up.

                              I doubt people will play WOF for long once they start losing. I go to 7-11 for coffee most of the people I see are buying $1.00 tickets. I understand why the economy is bad and people don't have a lot of disposable income.
