Went out to get some Fantasic 5 tickets, but the retailer sold out on those, so ended up getting 5 of the Million $$ Match last night 5-9, got just 1 TICKET on #5

Bought 3 more this morning from the same store, no one bought any since so #10-12, all three losers. seven straight losers set my record for $20 tiers.

Probably will take a break for a few weeks now.

    I just bought 8 of the 2$ Lucky for Life.  All of them duds.  NOT A SINGLE WINNER!

      Is it possible to get a free ticket prize with a multiplier? Bought Mega crossword and got a free ticket with a 3x multiplier! First time seeing this What?

       

      Bought $40 in $5 tickets today. Promotion at local festival was buy $20 and get a free wheel spin for Piggybank $1 scratchers(minimum of 5 free tix, max 20) Lost 7 out of 8 tickets for the $5, with the above being my only winning.

      Lost 2 on Wheel of Fortime, 1 on MegaCrossword, 2 on 20x Money, 2 on Triple7. 

      For the piggybank ones, I lost 9 out of 11. The other two were free ticket prizes.

          Bought two Fantastic 5s, won 1 ticket. I wish the more expensive tickets would have three games in one like this ticket.

              SAN BRUNO (CBS SF) — A San Bruno retiree has won $150,000 in a California Lottery Scratchers game and plans to save and invest the money, lottery officials said today.

              Arturo Castillo, 68, bought the Fantasy 5’s Scratchers ticket on Saturday at Speedy Spot, a store located at 701 Jenevein Ave. in San Bruno,

                In addition to that, I noticed this morning another top prize for $10 WoF was taken off and a $2million prize for the Million $$ Match game. The sales is behind the top prizes pace so might be good to hold off on the $20 game.

                Still no top prize winner for $10 LL.

                  A better strategy would be to buy the $5 and higher cards. They have bigger prizes and a larger percentage of winners than the $3 and under cards.

                    That is true

                    $2 games have a 62% payout with average 1 in 4.3 odds of winning

                    $5 games have a 68% payout with average 1 in 3.7 odds of winning

                     

                    I've only won more than $50 on a $2 scratcher just one, that was when a game called Hit $200 was out with a top prize of $200. Other than that, a $50 win is very rare.

                      I've been playing the $5 scratchers exclusively due to the current Power of 5 promotion.  My second chance entries are down 50% from what I normally accumulate when buying the $10 and $20 scratchers. Haven't won anything big other than a few $50 prizes a bunch of free tickets and $6 winners.  Yes the $6 wins are wins but they are lame wins.  I'd rather have the loser for the Power of 5 second chance promo.

                        I wanted to give 5MJ a try again so I bought 5 yesterday (#20 to #24) and all 5 were duds. 

                        My bad luck streak continues.

                          I do not understand the $6 prizes either, the $5 scratchers (back when $100k top prize was 1 in 600,000) used to have an $8 prize tier and even a $16 tier which I did not mind.

                          Anyhow, the payout percentages for $5 and $10 from break even TICKETS to $100 is roughly the same. Except $5 tickets have more $10 and $15 prizes and $10 tickets have better odds to win $100.

                          A good feeling to have is to buy 10 $5 tickets, and have at least 1 $50 winner from them, the 2nd chance entries would be considered to be free.
