diamond has been brutal to me so i stayed away but after hearing JonD's success I got myself one today too

#34 - $30 first win Wheee~~~

#41.42 - 0,0 smoking

smoking is killing me too ...

how i miss the days of constant wins on the fortune 55

Nice $30 win on Diamond. I haven't even hit one of those yet.

Got $100, and a $50 which is same 1-in-100 odds as the $30.(and both higher than $100 odds)

    i was tempted to buy the next diamond ... #35 cos i love them multiples of 5's but i didn't want to spoil the good feeling of being even ... *^^*

    have you found the diamond or any of the newer games to be sequential like the fortune 55?

      The Diamond Mil has the same odds and prize structure as $1M Fortune. I don't have a lot of data on it yet, but so far it appears to play the same: less than 20% sequential hits compared to single hits.(not clumpy) Best method to play this game would be 1 at a time and then stop at a win.

        i still love playing the $3 also, but i hate the current games cos they all require too much work ... and the 10x has not been kind lately

          The new $5 games $500K and Smokin Hot are about average, only about 1/3 as many sequential hits as single hits. They sacrifice some payout to make the top prize higher. If you want clumpy and higher hit ratio, Fortune 55 and Ruby Red are still better.

          I play some $3 games occasionally when I have some extra $ from redemptions. Cool Cash has been mostly a bust so far. But I'm running a profit on the Tripling Crossword. I find that I get a lot more first ticket winners on those, as you typically see people buy small crosswords to go, so they aren't depleted as much by win chasers and ticket hawks.

              It's been more than a week now since the last $10 LFL winner was announced but they haven't changed the number of top prize winners from 6 to 7.

                      Good work on those Xwords! Yeah, it may not give you an edge, but it can level the playing field sometimes where other games are played out due to win chasers and hawks. But still depends on store and time of day.

                      I see some new games coming out:

                      The new $5 game Win It All is the same odds and prize structure as Smokin' Hot Cash.(and Calif Lottery Black) Meh... Give us some new prize structure and better payouts!

                        i think they are coming out with a $20 game, the gas station by my house had an unscratched $20 ca lottery ticket ive never seen, but none for sale, It is a little longer than the $10 dollor ticket and was purple, i didnt see what it was called tho. it looks cool but $20 is a lot to spend on a scratch ticket

                            Tried some of the new Win It All from a couple stores:

                            0, 0, $6, $15 - the $6 was 3@$2 matches, boo! and a $5 and 10X$1 for the $15

                            0, 0, 0, $15 - another $5 and 10X$1 for the $15

                            Lucky hits on the 4th of 4 tickets reduced losses to $4.
