    Hmmm...checking my records, my highest win on 20x Xword was $100 on ticket . . . #13! Coincidence?

            Just curious how did you get the first and last one of the same roll? Did you make a request? or are you referring to last one of previous roll and first one on the next one?

                To my surprise, the payout structure for the new $10 scratcher California Gold (come out today) is different. More low tier prizes

                  Pay out odds are similar to the recently ended $250 Million Spectacular.

                  $100 wins went from 1 in 99 to 1 in 93

                  $50,000 prize is now a $20,000 prize at 1 in 1.2 million

                  $5,000 prize odds went from 1 in 300,000 to 1 in 600,000

                  $1,000 prize went down from 1 in 30,000 to 1 in 16,000

                  $200 prize went from 1 in 632 to 1 in 659

                    Tried a couple of the new $10 Cali Gold:

                    $20, $20 (#23,24) - 10X $2 and other was 3 matches for $10, $5, $5

                    Always good when you don't get shut-out on the start of a new game. OK, I can continue to play this one.

                      Tried some of the new $5 Ca$h Up game ...  Not impressed.

                      I don't like the way they made the numbers staggered offset vertically. Makes it hard to scratch off in one stroke like I normally do, instead making you scratch off a lot more and make a mess.

                      Results were poor too: $6, 0, 0, 0

                      I'll not be playing this game much.

                        I was not a fan of Fortune 55. Too many numbers to check when it has the same pay structure as the old $5 games Black Pearls and Hot Streak (those were probably the last $5 games I ever played).

                        They reduced it to 37, probably still too many. At least Fortune 55 had its own special drawing.

                          I actually liked Fortune 55. There was only 1 number to check against the others, or a distinct win-all symbol.(instead of a win-all number) And the rows were easy/quick to scratch.

                          I prefer quick symbol games like Ruby Red 7.(but don't play anymore) Wish they had a $10 game with symbol matching. Number matching is a pain, but unfortunately most games are that playstyle. You gotta remember 5, 6 or 8 numbers as you look through the playfield, or go through that many times. And that's the first pass! With symbols, wins stand out clearly. The worst are Bingo/Crossword games, and I only play those reluctantly.

                          Why does the potential for errors increase as the ticket price rises? Doesn't really make sense, does it?(unless errors is the intention...hmmm...)

                            As an alternative for playing the $20 tickets (realize it was much painful than I imaged), I will go back to playing the $10 tickets for now. Diamond Millionaire and California Gold.

                            I have not played for 2 weeks so I bought a set of 20 California Gold tickets. Tickets #3 - 22. I did not scratch at the store or I would have stopped at 5 tickets. But immediately better result than any of my $20 ticket purchases.

                            Winning Tickets 6 out of 14

                            #3 - $15 - $5 x 3

                            #5 - $100 - $25 x 4

                            #7 - $15 - $5 x 3

                            #18  - $10 - Ticket

                            #11 - $20 - $5 x 4

                            #22 - $20 - (10X Multiplier) $2 

                             

                            Ticket #5 ($100 - $25 x 4) - Purposely placed the penny to cover up the code as I need to cash it out for next time

                            $100 Win

                             

                            Will do overall stats later

                            Tickets Played : 20

                            Tickets Won : 6

                            Prizes Won - $10 x 1, $15 x 2, $20 x 2, $100 x 1
