              Really?  Haven't heard about that... is it something like the $30 win for life ticket in NY?

              I dunno mann... $30 is pretty steep for me!  I dabbled with 20X20 but it kicked my butt for the most part.

                  I notice that IL does not post the complete prize structure for scratch games on the website like other states do. Is it only printed on the back? Whats it look like?

                    Yeah... IL blows when it comes to that sort of stuff

                    $5 1:12

                    $10 1:8.57

                    $20 1:60

                    $25 1:120

                    $50 1:250

                    $100 1:250

                    $200 1:2,500

                    $500 1:839.16

                    $200K 1:1,680,000

                    kinda screwy that it's harder to win $5 than $10 LOL

                      Thanks for the info. That $500 Frenzy game seems to be spreading, so was wondering what it might look like if it came to CA.

                      They changed up the structure quite a bit in IL compared to PA's version, but still really top heavy. You pay a big price in typical play by pumping up the game to get those "easy" $500 winners. Getting only about 45-55% return typically, until you hit the $500 then you get in the mid 60% return range. Normal $5 games can deliver 60-65% in typical play, without hitting a $500 prize.
