Took my first crack at the $30 30th Anniversary game. Bought 2 tickets number 7 and 8, and both were losers...

Tried it again and got a 2X with $20 under it for $40. Used $6 and bought three of the coffee tickets; one had 10 2X spots with a $1 underneath each for $20 total. Weak, but better than losing.

    Just played the new 30th Anniversary scratchers and the payout is nothing close to 80% that it claims to be lol. Just want to provide you guys some data for those that were interested in playing. I would hold off for a few weeks until they sell enough tickets to start paying out higher prizes. $900 for the book, got back $510...

      Ticket 14 can't be, since $150 is not an offered prize. Was it $100 or $50 instead?

        You're correct, it was a typo...the winning was $200.

          80% is too good.  Those odds include all the big prizes altogether as a whole.

          The payback odds for playing 30 cards is more like 50%.  Unless you have one of the bigger prizes, which is in your case the $200 ticket.

            i believe 50% is the magic number...here is the 2nd book i just played:

            $560 Win.... So the first book i lost -$340 and this 2nd book i also lost -$340. Both books was exactly 62% payout.

              I bought 3 books of the $10 Millionaire a couple years ago, I got payouts of $440, $280, $310.  Haven't done it since.

              What was the largest prize have you guys won?

                CALottery's firstl 20 dollar scratcher game:

                $20 5Million Jackpot scratcher game still has two $5mil top prizes left, but an estimated less than 2 million tickets left.

                Any thoughts?

                  Basically like a few other States, we'll finally be able to use our phones to scan in 2nd chance tickets.

                    So, $30  for lousy odds and only 4 top prizes?  And people will buy this why? I know they have $30 tickets in other states -- are they similar to CA?

                    Maybe they think people will buy over the draw games since the odds are better.  But still ... and they want to go to $50? 

                    I cant even win a few dollars on the draw game these days. I use to wn 50-90-200 all the time when they first started. Now winning a dollar is a rare event.  :(

                      yup in NY pretty much all $5+ games have 4 top prizes and top prize odds of 2.5 million to 1 or worse

                          Basically like a few other States, we'll finally be able to use our phones to scan in 2nd chance tickets.

                          This was long overdue as it has been requested by players all over their twitter feeds (probably Facebook too) for a while. It might have been very useful when 2nd Chance was at its peak 2009-2012, when there was no limit at the time. Now there is a 500 ticket limit, it does not take much effort to punch in the codes anymore and to reach the limit (I used to exceed 500 in the past, now I put in 10 a month at most).

                          Now when you look at the Results and Winners page, the drawings for each game are way down. The recent $10 Lucky Life had just 1.8 million entries. The first $10 game ever $250 million cash spectacular had well over 7 million entries. That means it was much better odds to win the 2nd Chance for Lucky Life (now there is only the $20 games for the End of Game draw) than to scratch off the winner.

                          Though it may be a sign that scratcher sales are dwindling for tickets under $10, thanks for sharing this.

                            Who still puts a few chips towards super lotto?

                            The jackpot reset earlier this month when it got up to $66 million and I've put in $10 in each draw for the entire summer, but not playing anymore lately. I will play again if the jackpot reaches at least $30 million.

                            The $30,000 special drawing for the 30th anniversary is nothing special since it is for just ONE winner. SuperLotto sales are no where near strong as it used to be despite all these promotional incentives the CALottery is offering.

                              So guy in the Bay area that hadn't played the lottery in 10 years wins 1 Million dollars after buying 2 $10 scratchers. Maybe I should follow his playing strategy and wait 10 years.
