Follow up on Monopoly:

If the odds show on the page are correct, the $5 ticket's odds suck compared to other $5 games.

 

Also, here's the second chance promo for it:

Beginning July 5, 2016, through September 27, 2016 players will have the opportunity to enter non-winning Monopoly Florida Edition tickets ($1, $2, $5, $10 and $20) into the "Pass Go, Collect $10,000" Promotion for a chance to win cash prizes of $1,000 to $10,000. Entries will be weighted by price point and players can earn up to twenty (20) entries per ticket. A total of 128 winners will win $200,000 in total cash prizes! Four drawings will be held between July 5th and September 29, 2016, where two players in each drawing will win $10,000 in cash and thirty players will win $1,000 in cash prizes.

    These are the $20 Monopoly odds. I actually approve. First time in a long time. (And yeah, like th ghost said, the $5 ticket odds aren't good compared to other games. I'll play this one at $20.)

        With the $5 ticket,  I feel like they've took a risk. The chances of hitting the top jackpot is bad compared to $5 games we've seen recently, however, the chances of hitting $5k might be one of the best we've seen (since the existence of scratchoff tickets, can a veteran confirm?)

         

        1 in 30k for a $5k prize on a $5 ticket would be a pretty nice hit. The $500 odds isn't bad, 1 in 2.4k which is comparable to the $5 Winning (or losing) streak. 

         

        This $20 ticket might be one of the best we've ever seen since the existence of scratchoff tickets, judging by the odds. 1 in 60k for a chance to hit $100k (or $20k). 1 in 3.3k for a chance to hit $5k? The chances of hitting $100, $200, and $500 is also amazing compared to any other ticket we've seen. 

         

        I wonder if they made the prizes abnormally good due to leftover prizes from other scratchoffs ticket, and tried to "roll over" the pool of money? Like I said before, this $20 ticket is going to have better odds than $25 tickets lmao. This game is going to sell out fast. Also, the 2nd chance promotion is including much more winners this time around which is great.

          I am curious about the odds on that $20 ticket also. Keep in mind, we're running on the assumption that these pages are final and it's not just a template they have in there for them at the moment - which is possible.

          As for the odds on the $20 ticket, when the FLRules paper shows up we'll be able to figure out what percentage of money being brought in is being paid out and that should answer your question. We went through this some months ago and someone confirmed that they typically pay out X% of money brought in (I think it was in the range of 72%, don't recall for sure but I'll look it up). If it is higher than normal - I'd go with either that theory of a rollover or that they're using the poo odds on the $5 ticket to fund the others. Lol.

            Those odds and payouts are way too generous.

            Did a quick calculation and it looks like more is being paid out than taken in for each grouping of 3,800,000 tickets.

            Each major grouping of tickets with one $5,000,000 winner = 3,800,000 tickets with total income of 3,800,000 * 20 = $76,000,000

              ...will double check this on a spreadsheet later

              The math is right (or we both made the same mistake somewhere).

              Also in comparing it to other $20 games, it's odd that it has a 5MM, 1MM, 100k, 20k, and 10k prize. One of those shouldn't be. Though this obviously doesn't fix the math, it points to the page not being final. Which is good, cause the odds on the $5 sucked. I expect the $20 one to have odds the same as the $20 Flamingo, or slightly better.

                He said he called his Rep and ordered 30 more a couple of days ago. I might stop worrying about having Adam's luck and wait for the Monopoly $20 game by the sound of it lol! Probably have a better shot at it. Just for kicks while you guys are in Gainesville I also like to stop at the Exxon Mobil that's by the interstate and Williston road. Pretty big amount of tickets with older games mixed in..no 50X but he has quite a bit of other games and he is a really awesome guy (Ive met his family from a previous job). Might be a place to stop in on but AK is definitely the honey hole for variety and volume.

                  Latest status update about 200MS: It is confirmed that there are no tickets out there in W.Palm Beach, Miami, Pensacola, Ft. Myers and Tallahassee districts..

                  Orlando list is out there in this forum...Jacksonville has only 2 shops and they also don't have any 200MS tickets...Gainesville has most of the tickets...

                  I am still waiting for Tampa list as I didn't get any response from DO in tampa....Anyone has any idea about 200MS in and around Tampa?

                    Good Luck finding any tickets in Tampa ... truly the worst selection I have ever seen @ over 8 places (other than the 1 store that had 2 types yes 2 tickets for sale)

                            On vacation in Orlando and cleared out the 200ms from 2 locations on that list. Both books were open.  One had 18 tickets left and paid out 240, and the other had 23 tickets left and paid out 275. Both had small profits overall. 

                             

                            If you are in Orlando and looking,  you better get them before i venture out...  :)
