It is so unusual how the top prizes for Million $$ Match went down like flies. Even though the game favors smaller prizes, I am hardly getting much in the 40 tickets I've played so far.

At least for the $5M Jp, I got a fair share of $50 and $100.

Million $$ Match has been a godsend for me; I have won on probably 20 out of the close to 30 times I've played it. All small $30-$50 wins with two $100 wins. 5MJP has been a nightmare; can never seem to get a winner and if I do, it's usually a ticket or $20, though I did hit $50 a few weeks ago. A typical 5MJP day, I might buy two or three and will be lucky to get a ticket back, if anything.

    If you can find it California Black Exclusive is still a good buy. Emerald 10's has been giving me a nice return.

          I cannot find CA Black anywhere, if DGinElMonte does not sell it, it probably is ending next month.

          I tried 4 Emerald 10's the last 2 days, it has not been kind to me aside from that Halloween purchase.

          Numbers 1-4, #4 Ticket

          Numbers 7-10, #10 $15

            Nice picture CatScratch, thanks for sharing. If you post it on CALottery's social media channels, people might get a kick out of it.

            As far as the holiday scratchers go, they've introduced another crossword but this one for the $10 denomination. The $1/$2 seem to be more holiday themed.

            The $5 scratcher is a unique prototype that I saw in a survey in the past. It is the first of its kind.

              Thanks CAScratch20! When I saw the cat with the tix I had to take a picture.

               

              I tried a couple fo the new X-Word and they were duds. Interesting game though. They are exactly like the $10 Bonus X-Word except each game has potential multipliers. I bought a few of the new $5 game and got a free ticket and $6. They are pretty fun to play though.

              In the meantime, I went crazy with $20 Million Match tickets and am in the hole $600 since Tuesday Mad

                Went on a little spree with the new tix today.

                 

                2 $10 Crossword--Free ticket, dud

                7 $5 Money Bag Multiplier--Free ticket, $15, five duds

                3 $2 Holiday ticket--Two duds, $10

                5 $1 Holiday ticket--Four duds, $5

                 

                $66 spent, $45 won. Not the worst return for Scratchers, but still hoping for the big win.

                  I actually do have CA Black in stock.  Last time I checked, I have about 21 packs still left in my inventory. 

                  But I usually mass order a bunch of packs on the tail end of the pack's life since I know a lot of people will come to my shop after other stores have sold out.

                  My lottery rep used to gather them from other stores and bring them to me since she knew I could move them.  But I've been pestering her to bring me  the other packs and she said that they're no longer allowed to do that.  So who knows.  I never know if she's just being lazy or is actually telling the truth.  I have a similar issue with her regarding those black double-fold lottery holders.

                  Good luck everyone.

                  Edit:  There is a print out I can bring up that will tell me which games I need to gather and return to the lottery rep.  I'll print it out and let you all know tomorrow.

                      Awesome win! Thanks for sharing. I never had a win other than the $$ which is the regular win.

                      I did come by to report bad news personally with this Emerald 10's game. I went back last night and bought more tickets off of the same roll, #12-#19, all 8 of them were losers. Double checked with the 2nd chance, all entries were accepted. All the profit I had with the Halloween night win is all gone.

                        I personally do not buy crosswords these days since it sells well and will make the chances of replay much more difficult.

                        I will try the $5 multiplier game, I do not play $2 games due to low return.

                         

                        EDIT: Its actually on the website, the Retail Product plan. No games are listed as ending. Best news is that a new 2nd chance program for scratchers will come out January 2015. Also easier to cash tickets for retailers.

                            It is on the December 2014 Retail Product Plan.

                            There is not much details but the scratchers 2nd chance will have a weekly prize available rather than ten $1000 winners every 3 months.

                            Cashing tickets at retailers will be the same as the consumer scratching off a bar code to check if their ticket is a winner or not, there will be that option. It is in the Retail Product Plan it says it is easier but I do not feel its entirely easier since the clerk must scratch off for the 13 digits and enter the 3 boxed numbers.

                              Thanks, I'll have to look through the product plan. 

                              You have the clerk scratch off the 3 boxed numbers?
