    Yeah, your odds for the $500 sucks.  Our $20 game, the $500 prize odds vary from 1:398 to 1:585.

    I rarely play anymore because our games have been screwing around with the odds.  The marketing they come up with to explain the "new and improved" is comical.

      Hi gatorsrok,  thanks for the detailed responses and tips; very much appreciated,  and very nice hits there on the 100x.

      As far as what you were saying regarding the instant liability reports for the 100x, you are implying that all of the 5M top prizes are likely still out there?  According to the remaining prizes webpage,  there are five 5M prizes unclaimed.

      There is only one $5M prize remaining.  The website has a glitch.  I think the odds are decent that it was released but will never be won.  I buy the 100X when I find it but the odds of any big prizes left are low.  There are less than 200 books remaining.

        Yeah.  The prize odds for the $100, $150, $200, $400 and $500 are bad.  They added so many middle tier prizes that they had to dilute the odds.  I do agree that the odds on the $1000+ prizes are respectible.  I'll but a few tickets and see how it goes.  At least there is no second chance gimmick to waste our time.

          ty duckman interesting they gave us the cash value for this ticket (in NY only the $5 and $10 games are annuity values and they do not provide the cash values unless i see the game in the winner stories on their website and they take the lump sum)

          payout calculation below - worst case scenario a book will pay back $245 out of $600 but to my knowledge florida has a minimum back per book unlike NY, NJ, PA and several others (and that 79.9% using the cash value is not bad considering NY is around 74% w a 5m cash jackpot and have seen other states their regular $20s (non playbook, crossword, or many 20k prizes instead of a few couple mil prizes) paying as low as 72%)

            reading emergency rules and yes there a $2 option for the multipliers, thank god no $1 but $2 still pathetic (6 top prizes too compared to 4 in NY and 2nd prize of 1m annuity vs 50k)

             

            weirdly u cant win 100x $2 by itself, only w 5 $40 matches w it

              After having looked at the emergency rule, the structure of the winning combinations is almost identical to the 100X the Cash.  They basically just made it into a $20 game.

              In any event, I'll buy a few on Tuesday and see how I fare.  At least there is a $1M second place prize instead of the $100K most of the other $20 games have.

              Good luck to everyone.

                am hoping they still have top prizes around when i get down to fl around christmas knowing some of the games they sell out really really quickly and they may not reorder more

                 

                gl all and the $2 game looks like a $100 frenzy type game slightly worse than 1:400 for $100

                  Those odds for the new $20 game are a slaughter. Worst ever for a $20 game here in Florida. That's murderer's row.

                    You're right on OLDSCHOOL !! The NEW tickets really suck. I will never buy the new $20 ticket.

                    I made my killing on GRT - BILLIONDOLLARBLOCK BUSTER - $200MS - 100X - Jubilee - the odds for $500 on GR and GRT are the same but I only got a few $500's on GR and many many more on GRT - buying almost the same amount of tickets. How can that be ?

                    I may stop buying all together. The mystery of 100X sounds more like BS than any other explanation I've heard.

                    wins: $10,000 Jubilee - $5,000 $200MS - 31 $1k's - 183 $500's - 5 $400's

                      So you think the remaining 5M prize is not actually out there among the <200 books still left (according to gatorsrok) ?

                        I'm not even gonna guess or say anything because it will be wrong. It's too odd that a top 100X prize hasn't been won in a long time - plus the lottery said that all .tickets are in circulation. That was about 2- 3 months ago ! Why is it that 100X can't be ordered anymore and yet the game is not on the ending list.

                        Was just shopping at Publix - the counter clerk showed me the new $20 ticket they had as a sample. Very thin like tin foil and covered with scratch off spots. I tried to rip in two but the clerk grabbed it from me :) LOL

                        wins: $10,000 Jubilee - $5,000 $200MS - 31 $1k's - 183 $500's - 5 $400's

                          im thinking that 5 mil will never be won, "all" those tickets were at the retailers long ago according to the fl lottery, they have the out tickets may not be available at the time of purchase,

                          biggest hit 10k, Jubilee, 5K Miami Heat, 2K Emerald 8s, 1k jubilee, 1k GRT, 1k heat wave, multiple 500's

                          good luck in the chase 2013 wins, maybe 4 500's

                            Although this issue has been discussed before, I'll give my final two cents.  I've done a lot of research on the 100X game (ordered instant liability reports, spoke with lotto reps at the HQ, and ordered serial numbers on top prizes).  Basically, the print run consisted of approximately 911,000 books.  Because the books are not 100% sequential and do not always start at 1, the total print book serial number goes to about 1,070,000.  Prizes for about 900,000 worth of books have been claimed.  There are about 160 books still in circulation (this includes activated and nonactivated books).  There is a $1M prize winner approximately every 16,666 books and there is a $5M prize winner approximately every 150,000 books. 

                            There is a total of 1 unclaimed $5M prize and 6 unclaimed $1M prizes.  It is possible, but extremely unlikely, that the $5M prize or a $1M prize is among the 160 books left.  About 11,000 books were either cancelled, not released, returned, destroyed, etc but they will never be in circulation and neither will their prizes.  That 11,000 books probably accounts for one of the unclaimed $1M prizes. 

                            Bottom line, there is a chance but a small one.  A lot of single match prizes went unclaimed at every prize level.  Basically, people did not check their tickets carefully and they threw away winners...some of them were million dollar winners.

                              Nice info and explanation again about the 100x.

                              Given everything you just said however,  are you still buying another roll if the opportunity arises? :)
