The scratchers here are by far the worst I have ever seen. The books are not even paying back 50 percent! I bought 5 books not all at once but I go to a store that I frequent and knew what number I had left off on and the last 5 books of 5 dollar tickets there was not even a 50 dollar winner. The most was 20 bucks!

The book totals range anywhere from 80-100 at best on a 200 book.

Dont even get me started on the 20 dollar ticket. We only have 2. One is a complete waste of time because they are loaded with either free tickets or 40 dollar winners. 

The other one the odds are 1:3.89 for a 20 dollar ticket! I have been foolish enough to buy books of these and what a mistake that was. The payback average was 280 from 600. There are only 300,000 tickets printed with 53 yes 53 20k prizes. But they are nowhere to be found. I have NEVER seen a back to back ticket winner and there are always strings of 5 in a row losers with the 6th being a free ticket. Complete waste.

    Hoops, I agree with you. I lost about $200 yesterday playing the Lucky 20 ticket. All I got was $20 and $25 winners with lots of losers in between. The other $20 ticket did better, but as you mentioned its all $20 or $40 prizes. I bought $300 worth and got back $260. Pointless ticket. Even the clerk told me she has never seen a winner higher than $40 on it. Wow

    2014 Highest Winner: $500

      They give you a FREE ticket on a $20?!? Get out...
      that's one sick payout on a $20. They're keeping the money where they want it.
      Do you have places that will give you the cash for the FREE or no?

        LOL yeah I gave up on the tickets here. They are pointless. Lucky times 20 is the worst one by far. there is a winner every 4 or 5 and usually its 20 or 25. Once in a while they will throw in a 50 or 100 here and there but they are few and far between.

          Are any of the $10 tickets worth playing ? It seems with such small jackpots there should be better odds to win them? I have yet to find anything over $500 in any state this year it's getting ridiculous !!!

            I dont think so. There are only 2 top prizes in each 10 dollar game. Like Pinball Wizard is 10 dollars. There are 2 top prizes with 1 claimed. The 2nd tier prizes are not plentiful. Maybe only 10 or so of 1,000. The rest are just 50 and 100. not worth it at all.

              Are you still in RI? I could meet up with you and show you some of the tickets I have played etc.
