The detailed odds for the new tickets are viewable now. The odds of winning $500 on the $25 ticket are crazy high. 1 in 1000?!?! Its easier to win $500 on a $20 ticket. The odds of winning $1000 are insane too. The only thing I like about the odds is that basically each roll should have a Ticket, $30, $40 and $50. A double up prize should be in each roll for every priced ticket, but somehow its not lol. 

 

I'll probably try it once, maybe twice if im feeling it. Better off playing a $20 or $30 ticket if im in the mood to play a high priced ticket. The overall odds are very misleading.

    Odds are getting worse and worse. They will not get better until people quit playing. It is all about revenue and to ensure it grows every year the odds have to get worse. I tried my hand today. Bought 2 tickets. A Cash Spectacular and a Super Max the Money. Won a free ticket on both. Turned them both in and got one more Cash Spectacular and my $30 back. The Cash Spectacular won $50. Turned it in and got my $50 then walked away. Maybe I will play again in a month or 2.  My heavy gambling days are over.

      Saw an ad at the store for the next batch of new tickets coming out in a couple weeks. 

      $10 ticket called Color Me Rich-Basic number match, we'll see if it has good odds.

      $3 Frogger- I like these different type of games. Probably won't have amazing odds, but I'll definitely try it a little. 

      $5 Cash Wheel- Usually $3 tickets get the crossword/grid type of games, so thats cool.

      Then theres just a standard $1 and $2 ticket.

       

      Might buy a $20 ticket later. Not really feeling $5s right now since I can't win more than $10 on them. The $10s out right now don't interest me much either.

        Did my monthly try yesterday and got burned again. I  bought 4 $30 tickets 2 $20 ticket a 50x $10 ticket and the pink $10 ticket. All losers. The store near my job is one of those stores that hang their $300+ winners. It used to be filled with wins. Now there is 1 ticket hanging. GA lottery has gotten pathetic. I am down around  $500 for the year. Now that is a hell of a lot better than when I used to be down $500 or more after a DAY or 2!

          My luck has been horrible! I think my biggest win all year has been $20 on a $10 ticket. I'll try a couple of the new tickets next week, but after thats its time to cut back. Probably going to spend half of what I have been spending for the next couple months at least.

            Decided to buy 2 today.  I bought a $30 Cash Spectacular and a $30 Max the Money.  The Max lost.  This was the Cash Spectacular.

             

            I bought 2 more Max the Money before getting $50.  I have won back over half of what I was down for the year with this so I am fine with that.  Until next month!

                Played some of the new tickets today. 

                 

                2 $5 Cash Wheel's #059 & #058 and they both lost. 

                1 $3 Frogger #099 lost

                1 $10 Color Me Rich #027 Free Ticket

                 

                Better than a complete loss. Hopefully my luck turns around one of these days.

                  Thanks Dracos! It was great to get more than $60. 

                  I have not played the new tickets but I also haven't checked the odds. If they are bad I won't be playing. I hardly play anyway.

                    The $5 ticket has good odds and even the $2 ticket. The $10 ticket is pretty crappy, but I played it once and got my money back.

                      Didn't wait until next month like a dummy and lost about $200 the other day. Played various games but 100x was the ticket that got me. Played about 7 before hitting $50. Played 1 of the new $10 color me rich tickets and hit $20. Tried another one of those pink $10 tickets and still haven't won anything on it. Not even a Free ticket!

                        I haven't played any of the new tickets yet but from what I've been experiencing and judging on the comments I often see here, The GA Lottery has taken

                        a turn for the worst. It seems they have been gradually raising the overall odds for each new game they come out with. Its either the overall game odds or the odds

                        of the prizes each new game has. It sucks that GA has gone to these levels to increase their profits.

                          Yeah it seems like thats happening. Certain tickets might have really good odds, but for the most part no. 

                           

                          My luck hasn't changed much lately. Have won $10 on $5 Cash Wheel twice, so thats good.

                            I am embarrassed by my actions. I played today like an idiot and got burned for another $200. Here is how my luck went. Bought a $30 Cash spectacular and got a free ticket. Traded it for a Super Max the Money and won another free ticket. Bought 4 regular Max the Money before winning a free ticket. Played a few $20 games after that and the best I could do was a $30 win. Went across to another store and bought 2 cash spectacular and won $40 on the second. Played that big arse $25 ticket and lost. Played a few more $20 tickets and won $50 on 100x. Of course I was way down by the time I got that. It is a shame. 3 different stores I have played at in 2 different areas with the same results. Now I don't want to play at all again.

                              Yeah let's just add another $220 to the above. Tried yet another store hoping for better results. More if the same. Just awful! Got it out of my system so I am backing off again. I was doing so well playing once or twice a month. I wasn't winning anything then either but surely less expensive!
