Is your state eliminating $1 scratchers?

Illinois seems to be.

The bottom row of the lottery vending machines used to be all $1 scratchers, now there's one or two and the rest are $2.

Seems like there just aren't that many $1 ones left.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.


There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

    In my opinion the only $1 ticket worth buying are the 'cash 4 life' type tickets.

      I don't think so, but at the same time, nothing exciting seems to come out in this denomination.  Mostly status quo, just different colors and designs on the new tickets.

      I agree that our Lucky for Life $1 has horrible odds but the only one worth playing, the others only pay up to $1,000.  We have one scratcher where the top prize is $50.  I bought 4 of those and called it quits.

        I agree Tatototman, I don't even go for the $2 ones unless it Cash for Life.
