Pretty sure someone is going to win MM tonight, numbers drawn are low 8-14-17-20-39 Mega-7, almost like playing Fantasy 5. Too bad I did not nearly have $575,757 to cover all those numbers for the white balls. Otherwise it would have been profit $$$ even with the pari-mutuel prizes for 5/5

I tried 45 draws for MM, did QP for the white balls and bought each Mega numbers 3 times each.

All I won was 2 1+Mega and 1 0+Mega for possible $5

    Yup. Looks like at least one winner is from San Jose.

          Looks like the new games for December are out, they just updated webpage with a new $5, $3, $2, $1 games.

          New $5 game 20X The Money appears to be a slight modification of the WinItAll/SmokinHot prize structure. They reduced the top prize from $250,000 to $200,000 and gave that money for more $50 prizes. Meh... Same total payout, slightly higher average/typical return because to the extra $50 prizes.

          I guess I'll give it a try as soon as I find some in my area.

            I will probably play the 20X The Money now while playing the SLP 2nd Chance until March

            Now that it is finally come to an end, How much did you guys win off of the MM drawing last night? I know the big winner was in San Jose but the two 5/5 winners were in San Diego County.

            Slight peeve on the fact the parti-mutuel system reduced my 1+Mega winning to just $1 instead of $2.

            4 in other states is $500 but $413

            4+Mega in other states is $5000 but it was $3347 here.

            I do not think I will bite on a large MM jackpot again

              The pari-mutuel did the two 5/5 winners a big favor though!

                Do you buy scratchers for other people when they give you money and ask for a couple of tickets?  I've noticed recently that I got skunked while tickets I picked for others won, albiet small prizes.  Last month, I did better than okay with scratchers, but I also didn't buy any tickets for others either.

                  I do not know many avid scratch off players out there, but when they play, it is usually the $1 or $2 ones and they lose when the odds of winning are worse than the $5 or $10 price points. They are left with an even worse impression.

                  I try convincing to buy at least $5 scratcher, but to many it is very high stakes.

                  I personally only play the $5 and $10 since there are decent low tier payouts. I tried the $1, $2, $3, and $20 ones, without much success.

                    Tried some $5 20X The Money at a couple stores:

                    0, 0, $6, 0

                    0, 0, $10, 0

                    Bad early results. Coulda been worse I guess.

                        Tried some more 20X the Money at a couple stores downtown:

                        0, 0, 0, $20 - $20 was 20X $1

                        0, 0, $20, 0 - $20 was 5X $2 plus 10@ $1 matches

                        At least broke even this time.

                          I dislike "teaser" wins on Scratchers.  So, last night, I'm tired and scratched my $5 ticket I bought earlier in the day and uncovered a 10x win but decided to scratch the prize later.  This morning I found it was $1.00 for a $10 win on the $5 ticket.  Unhappy

                            Got 2 $5 LFL scratchers from a liquor store in Woodland Hills... Won $10 on one of them and other was a loss.

                              Thats criminal...

                              Michigan has no lower prize amount on the ticket that is the cost. I think that is the way it sould be.
