I bought on Jan 8 - 6, $3 cards for a total of $18 worth of Emarald Riches and here are the results:

041 - 0

042 - 0

043 - 0

044 - $3

045 - 0

046 - $5

A total of $8 back and  down by -$10.  I wonder if I had purchased another 6 cards for a total of 12 cards would the results be the same. Who knows I may try that another time with the $3 cards but for now I will move on.

I figure if I post it here, others can see what's going on with the game. The next cards I will try will be the $1 and $10. Stay tune for more...

        Been playing jackpot games regularly for 4 yrs,  won $10 couple of times.  That's the most I have won.

        Only played scratch-offs 4 times after I know this website , won $1 back.

          last month I spent $100, bought $10 scratchers, usually 2 in a row. Came out with about $300.

            That's really good! I hope that happens to me  (more, more). I said I will try it for a year and see how it goes.

              $4 regular for years and $10 is the most won a couple times. That is ridiculous!

                  My tickets were purchased in the Natural State. I try to purchase tickets in all states.

                    I bought 9, $1 cards and won $2. My thought the $1 cards are a waste. Next, I will try the $10 card and hope not to say the same thing.Smash

                        I bought 6, $10 cards 12-17 and won $15 on No. 14. Right now, I feel like a cup without the cake. Woo Hoo! This sucks! I will try again next month. Total spent was $88, total won was $25. I'm down by $63. When you look at it like this... it's bad and make you see how much money is been wasted. I don't know if I want to do this next month or not. If I think about it like fishing, I'll try again and if not, we will see.

                          I just started on scratchers about 6 months ago and I've been spending about that much per month too... So far, I've lost 77% of what I put in; yeah I've been keeping track. Puke

                          Dec/Jan have been terrible; actually down right ridiculous... no winners at all, not even a stinking free ticket from $1 to $20 tickets-ouch... what are the odds on that?

                          Right now, I think I'm playing out of the shear, morbid curiosity of how long I can go without winning anything...

                          I'll keep you posted!

                          Good luck all and apologize for the "debbie downer" postConfused

                            I got a $100 bonus at work this week. I'm on my way to do my weekly grocery shopping, tempted to do 5 $20 or 10 $10 tickets just for the h311 of it. We'll see who wins this-my adult side or my spoiled inner child ;)

                              I bought 10 - $1 tickets and not one was a winner. I'm convinced now the $1 tickets should be banned. I will not be buying another $1 ticket this year. I was thinking about the $20 ticket but opt out and bought $1 this time. I don't think I'm going to stick with the $100 per month because I really think it's a waste. If I do pay any more on the tickets, I will keep everyone posted. My true thought is that the odds are so against everyone on all the games, so I think most if not all games are truly a waste of money. Our money could be used so many other ways than on cardborad cards that show no results.
