    let us know how you do,  I've bought about 50 of these tickets this month with nothing more than $10 winner.  I would prob say i have close to a 20% ROI on this game this month and an even lower ROI on the $20 game.

    Got 2 $5 LFL from a Cvs in Burbank and lost both..

      On the Lottery website they've already released the Retail Product Plan for next month.

      http://static.sc-www.calottery.com/~/media/Retailer/product-plans/March%202014%20RPP.pdf

      Still no new $20 game, but some interesting scratchers

      $10 Crossword Game

      $5 game $500 frenzy with $500 top prizes

      $3 Cash it Up or Fortune 55 type

      $2 Number matching game

       

      Probably I will play the $500 frenzy

          Uh oh, the infamous $500 Frenzy finally made its way to California.

          There were a couple of threads for it for PA version and then when it hit IL, I posted a comparison of the two in that thread:

          http://www.lotterypost.com/thread/264923/3232312

          Will be interesting to see how it is structured for the CA Scratchers version.

            I am interested in seeing the payout structure myself too. I read those posts, although the same scratch card company is producing it by looking at the ticket layout, PA version has a $200K top prize and IL has a $100K top prize, I looked closely at the CA Lottery March 2014 RPP PDF file and it says $500 will be the top prize. I think this game will be a hot seller due to more realistic chances of winning. Some people sitll have the perception that the top prizes do not exist until they see one for themselves. The Hit $50 / Hit $200 / Hot $500 / Power $777 did decently. 

            I hope this one has better odds of winning than the $2 games.

            Best part about this is the top prizes are not taxable. When you win $1000 (over $599), you really win about $720 ~ $850, but writing off the losers to get most of the taxed amount is another story.

            Probably holding off on scratchers until this game comes out.

              Uugggh... I hope the top prize of $500 Frenzy isn't $500. I mean, yeah, even if they throw in a few token higher top prizes of $100,000 or something, it'll be extremely hard to get anyway, maybe even harder than a regular $5 game TP. But still nice to have a big prize in there.

              It better be a REAL juicy amount of $500 prizes to justify having that as top prize on a $5 game. I remember the Hot $500 $2 game. I actually won a top prize on that one.(my only top prize to date...) Can't see myself chasing after this, but you're right, those games did well in the past, so people may eat it up.

                  Been having a weird dating scenario with $10 LFL and Gold the past couple of days.  I spend $10 and win $15, I spend $40 and win $20, I spend $10 and win $20 and then I spend $20 and win $30.  It's like a long cycle of nothing.

                  Not complaining but it's a lot of work to end back up at the start.  It's like I took $80 out of my wallet, gave it to someone, waited 2 days and then they gave me back $85.  I guess that's good interest for 2 days.  Better than the bank but not when you add in the gas.

                    How many stupid crossword games can they have at one time?  It's like a joke.  There are 8 crosswords out right now.  Seems like a complete dillution of a game.  I don't see the need for 3 Tripling Crosswords with the same awards.  What's the point?

                      I help manage my mom's lottery pool with their 2nd chance entries.  Over 90% of tickets they play are the various crossword and bingo games.  They love it.

                      But, I agree, it seems like an overkill though...

                          5 LFL is like the 1 & 2 LFLs, basically a lotto ticket, all or nothing.

                          I've been playing 5 LFL this week and my ROI has been 35%.

                          All or nothing.

                            Interesting to see the unadjusted odds for GP are the same in 5LFL & 5MJP.  1/2,400,000

                              Not a fan of the extended play games like Crossword or Bingo, if I happened to be a fan, I would like the multiple games so that there are seperate drawings for the Top Prize End of Game drawing.
