I just saw that ticket from the Georgia thread. I think GTECH produced this game for California, Pennsylvania, and Georgoa. The state lottery pays about 1% of the revenue to GTECH produce the games. There is virtually not much left to pay to the players thereafter.

The extended play games like crossword and bingo are printed in Canada.  On the back you'll see "Made in Canada."  They're produced by Pollard Banknote of Winnipeg, Manitoba.

That's why I'm surprised with our lack of variety.  I believe all we (CALottery) do is pick games developed by various vendors.  Other states seem to have interesting games, maybe CALottery is being too conservative and only picking games similar to ones released before.

    hey guys recently came back from a scratch off hiatus due to the $5 million jackpot cleaning me out.

    Decided to try out the new $20 dollar game (000) and won a ticket back.

    The following day, I cashed it in at a different store and got ticket #007 and won 50 off the fast spot.

    These ones don't seem too bad due to the prize increments, rather than the terrible $5 million jackpot ticket.

    Good luck to all and please share your results !

      *turns over a 3x crossword*

      By jingo you're right! Boycott extended play scratchers! How dare those Canadians swindle me out of my lottery dollars, only Americans should do that! ... Razz

      Seriously though, it puts me in mind of that Mohan Srivastava story from 2011 that keeps popping up, wasn't it Canadian scratchers he cracked? I wonder if any California scratchers are beatable... lots of numbers gives you more data to work with than words, so the Bingo or the Lucky Stars... even if they are I'd have to find a retailer willing to go along with it, take back all the tickets I think are losers. If the retailer was firm in his notion that scratchers aren't beatable, that might not even be unethical.

        Liking the new $20 ticket already. Bought one each at two separate stores Friday and won $30 and $100. 5MJP has been out ten months and despite spending well over $1,000 cumulatively on that ticket, I still have yet to win over $50. Go figure. Prize structure on Million $$ Match is much better.

            I hear you. Bought ticket 000 of the Million $$ Match--first one out of the pack--and won $30; first $3 Tripling Crossword out of the pack--000--and won $10. Happy with the new $20 tickets. Have won $30 twice and $100. Some stores have already pulled 5MJP, apparently.

              One week without playing a single dollar on scratchers.  This is a milestone for me.  lol

                  Seems like it has been awhile since big top prizes have been awarded on a lot of games.  Maybe a stream of them will start popping out.

                    Wow!  As soon as I say no top prizes in awhile, someone already has won the $5 million on the new $20 game.  Bummer because it could be awhile before we see another. 

                    I am shocked that no TP for the new $10 LFL has been won yet.  That game looks like it may be another dog in the WOF and Black category.

                      That was real quick, only been a week. Reminds me of the first $5 Set for Life game where the top prize was taken so quick.

                      Still $2 million and $1 million are nothing to sneeze at even after the big prize went down.

                        Love the new $20 ticket. Bought three and have won $30 twice and $100; 5MJP can suck it. $10 Lucky Life is surprising; that ticket went on sale at the end of April and still nothing? Is it a dog in sales like you said or simply the low number of TP tickets available?

                          I haven't had any luck with the new $20 tickets myself. I've bought 20ish tickets and have only won $50 and $30 and two tickets.

                          The owner of a store I frequent said he had seen really good rolls and really bad rolls. Good rolls have plenty of $50, $100, and even $250 winners and bad rolls have lots of $50 and less prizes. But this is probably just a generalization of what he has seen so far. 

                           

                          I've mostly been playing $10 LL and tickets lately seem to have become very bad. I used to get $50 and $100 often but now I pray for $15 or $20 wins. I really do hope the $10 LL gets claimed soon...I told myself I'll play until the first TP is taken and then I will stick with $5 or lower games.

                            Been over 2 months since I bought a scratcher and I feel good...But I am tempted with the new $20 one which has millions in the second / third prize range..
