Thanks. Going to try once more on the new tickets. Are they out Tuesday?

Heard Tuesday the 8th they will be out. Plan to get some and thats it. My new plan is outside of Tuesday to play $20 each Friday(whether it be 1 $20 ticket or 20-$1 tickets) and stick to it.

    That sounds like a good idea and budget 20 a week I think I'll try that

      Yes, an excellent idea. Will try that after my initial buy of the new games.

        After I splurge a little on the new tickets I'm going to try that. I've won more money on many (like 20 to 60) $1 tickets in a row than I have on two or three $10 or $20 tickets in a row.

          Go for the one $20 ticket! I know it may be less fun, but the payoffs will be significantly higher. As a fellow PAer, I have done analyses on all the scratch-off tickets.

          -The expected value for one $20 ticket ranges from $14.63 ($100 Million cash extravaganza) to $15.21 (Platinum Millions [best EV in the state]). 

          -The EV for 20 $1 tickets ranges from $12.10 (20 x "7-11-21") to $12.90 (20 x "royal riches").

          By buying $20 tickets, you stand to make 19% more money! For more scratch-off data, check out my website in my profile.

           

          PS - my personal favorite PA ticket is $250,000 a year for life

            I don't see the link in your profile. Am I missing it?
