Just dropping by to shed some light on the forum. Hopefully all you folks arie doing positive in your daily routines. You cant win if you dont play! Scratchers right now really are a turn off for me. Havent bought any this month. Even though they are a big temptation at the store. Just sticking to fantasy 5 when over 100k and Super Lotto. Maybe the bag will roll to 100mil? Who knows. Hows the luck raining in your area?

    Taking a hiatus from all CA Lottery games; it started in late June and will run to at least September, maybe longer. Too many personal expenses and bills of mine to want to drop $10/$20 or more on the same <snip> games.

      I hear ya. $5 here , $10 there , $20 over there, those chips really add up to something if you can trace every dollar spent on the lotto.

          Hello Guys,

           

          Today Calottery announced several new games for August in the newsletter. From the website cache those odds have been updated. But what more interesting is, from the sidebar a new option of "$30 Scratchers" also shows up. And it says as follow:

          "

          California Lottery's first EVER $30 Scratchers game!

          The new $30 Scratchers games has the BIGGEST wins! More chances to win, even bigger prizes. Scratch your way to win INSTANT MILLIONS!

          "

          I feel like they have decided to introduce at least one $30 game in later this year. 

          Since CA got another version of NY's "Lucky 7's Playbook", I guess it might be similar to "Win 1mil a year for life".

            Missouri came out w the playbook 1st

            and CA's version has a much higher payback than NY's (75% vs 65%)

            and trust me hope it not Win 1M for life for u guys - that been out for 7 years in NY and it is a load of (bleep) (terrible payback and u most likely only going to get ur money back plus 5 dollars if u win at all, very few prizes above $100)

              Had my best luck with scratchers yesterday. I bought 1 Deluxe 7 Playbook and 2 50X the Cash scratchers.  The Deluxe 7 was a Dud.  The first 50X the Cash was a $100.00 (50X $2.00) winner.  The second 50X the Cash was a $1,000.00 winner. At first I thought the second ticket was another $100.00 winner because I uncovered the $100.00 fast spot win.  $200.00 would have been just fine with me. When I scanned the tickets in the store I realized I won $1,100.00.

                    Anyone is this odd or questionable? I purchased 3 50X The Cash scratchers from a local gas station. The first 2 tickets were
                    #9/#10 and they were attached. The third and unattached of the three was ticket #13. Doesn't ticket #11 come after ticket #10?

                      The Syrian dude who owns the liquor store down the street from where I live does this sometimes. He'll have the tickets in sequential order with a few (whether from the same roll or not) stuffed at the top. IMO, that's a red flag.

                      On my end, the point is moot since I haven't played Scratchers--or any game--in quite a while and don't plan to do so, at least for the foreseeable future.

                        Just a side note. The clerk that I bought the ticket from also won $5000 and $1000 buying tickets from his own store.  The story is he won but had to split the money with someone else.

                            the sunoco owner down the street from me often buys multiple scratch offs from his store especially after you've had multiple loser..... i usally buy a couple walk outside scratch them and come in for two more (lol ) not i single person has entered the store and i go back the 3rd time the following 2 or 3 tickets are gone ands he asking if i had a winner.... which tells me he took the next couple out and stashed them behind the counter then asked me if i had a winner to see if he should scratch them or not
