Spot on, gatorsrok! You've echoed my thoughts exactly. And congrats on the great hits recently.

The only thing I'd add is that I think the Lottery set that 2018 date just for the sake of having a final cut-off for the game no matter what. I was concerned about the date before, but having seen the Instant Liability Report I think they set the date just because the game has been around forever. If people don't buy it there's no reason for them to just let it keep taking up space (it's also old-tech for them in that it isn't a scannable ticket, so I'm sure they're ready to have it gone). They could have just pulled it months ago, but instead decided to essentially give us three years of notice that it's time is done. Those of us that are interested will chase down the remaining tickets, and everyone else will go on buying whatever's new for no other reason than newness. $200MS won't last much longer.

Speaking of end dates, the lotto just posted this end date for the $200K a year for life:

Ticket Price: $20.00
Launch Date: January 05, 2010
End Date: October 19, 2019
Redemption Deadline: December 18, 2019

It looks like they are going to cycle out the old games (without bar codes).  10 years seems to be the lifespan of a game. 

Mr. Gray, I agree.  I think the limits are set because they can't keep games around forever and if nobody is buying them, it is a waste of space.

    Wow if it's ending that late I'm guessing that the lottery is gonna flood with more losers or know that nobody will win the remaining prizes. Le sigh.

      We must remember, with their age these are games that sell very poorly now compared to the others available. Years pass between jackpots not because the Lottery is being stingy, but because virtually no one is buying these tickets.

      As gatorsrok suggested, this end date on the $200k A Year for Life game is likely akin to that on $200MS. It's an expiration date, essentially. A time when the Lottery will call it quits regardless of whether or not tickets remain in play. Ten years is a bloody long time for scratch-offs (especially when you need a chisel to scratch them). They can't just sit forever. As I mentioned in a previous post, the Lottery seems to have done some diligent accounting and found it much more profitable to have games that come and go quickly. It's a model many other states use and it's likely working for them. We'll start to see all of these old games phased out over the next couple of years, and thereafter I'd be surprised if any game is designed to last more than a year.

        Found a Mobil station that had $200 MS - bought five and got the below. Not a big win but a keeper. Went back later to cash it and get the rest of them - but were sold !

        I keep records for the fun of it - $500's and above - on this game since it came out came out I won 31 $500's - 7 combo's for $1k - one $5K - but never came across a 10X100 in some 6 or 7 years - I saw two people with 10X100 winners when I went to the D.O. a short while ago ...... I know a couple people here who got 10X100 the past month ....... I wonder why all of a sudden there are so many 10X100's - is the lottery dumping 200MS tickets to clean out the inventory and these were printed to conform with the emergency rules numbers ? Some of you guys are good with ideas and statistics - what say you ???

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

          Still worth it to buy whole rolls of 100X even if one believes the top prizes (5M, 1M) are not among remaining rolls?

            Can you find a whole roll? Depends. Buy 1 and get the roll # and see if it's "in the zone"

              Can you elaborate on what you mean by 'see if it's "in the zone"' ?

                After taking a break for a couple weeks I had a lousy run on $200MS today.

                Bought 30 tickets spread about from three different locations. 26 of them were duds. I had a few $10/$15 wins and a single $100.

                              $200MS has vanished in my neck of the woods. Had some time off this afternoon and went looking for them, couldn't find any! Just last week I saw them in 3 different stores. The girl at Circle K told me they pulled the game at their store but she was not sure why.

                              I bought 2 20$ Gold Rush, won 20$ back

                              Got the last 20$ Flamingo they had and won 20$ again

                              Wasted that on 2 50X Cash, both duds.

                              Thankfully it's only 40 bucks gone.
