Officially done. Went back and played 3 of the 4 remaining tickets. $50 winners on one. Some guy slipped in and bought the 4th and it was a free ticket. I bought one of those big arse mighty buck tickets and got a JUMBO symbol with $5 underneath and a single $5 match for a grand total of  $30. Bought a Giant Jumbo and got another JUMBO symbol with $2 underneath for a grand total of $10. What a joke! Got a 50x the money to go. Scratch it at my office and won a free ticket! That is it for me. I have lost about $1600 since April 15th.

I know, those games are a joke. What a waste of good symbols. I don't even get excited getting one of those anymore.

    Exactly, Especially books of these tickets. They seriously are very bad. The same thing happened to me when I decided to buy a book of the Cash Spectacular tickets.

    It was only like 3 winners and I have heard worse. These tickets have been packed full of losers.  I think what they are doing is pooling all the

    loosing tickets at stores that get a high volume of customers, trying to maximize their profits and occasionally sending a mid tier prize at these store locations to

    stimulate sells. I wouldn't be surprise if a 1 million dollar winner surfaces somewhere soon, I think it is due.

      Luck has been a lot better lately. Besides buying a $20 20K Winfall and losing, I bought 2 $5 tickets. 1 Red Hot $5s that won $15, and 1 The Cash Wheel that won $32!!!! That was on ticket #004. It was $16 with a 2x. 

      Also got a HOT symbol on the $1 Red Hot $5s and guess what just 5 times 1, but hey its a $1 ticket so thats a good win for that ticket. 

      Hope the good run continues a bit longer.

        Well I officially had it today. I'm done playing GA scratch offs. This games are just horrible right now and not worth the gamble.

        Today was my final try to get something back, and I just got assured this are just bad.

        Played several tickets, but the only thing worth mentioning is that I played some $20 3 million jackpot and won a weird prize of $75. Checked the odds for that prize, and guess what, it's harder to get $75 that $100, 200 or even $500. But that's just my luck in this games.

        Overall down another $160. For now on I may only play one ticket a week, if that. Good luck for whoever is still on the chase.

        Falcon out.

        The $10s and up seem brutal right now. I'm having great luck on $5 tickets lately. I usually have the most luck on $10 tickets, but its flip flopped to $5s. 

        I'm lucky I have a lot of self control. I wish I had that when I had that amazing streak of luck. Could have saved me a few hundred bucks or so.

          I think it is easier when you play tickets $10 and below. I don't play many of those when I play because I know the odds are bad. So if you win $20 - $25 on those you quit because most likely you won't do any better. On $20 on up tickets the odds are better so you play more knowing you have a better chance to win a large prize. Bad thing is the losses add up quicker. Losing on 5 $5 tickets compared to losing on 5 $20 tickets is $75 difference! I played 6 $20 tickets today before winning a free ticket! Played one more and won $40. So $140 in and $60 out just like that. I have to get disciplined enough to play 1 or 2 and walk away no matter what.

            Definitely way easier to play $10s and $5s. Some $5's have pretty good odds like the Red Hot $5s. Discipline is key to staying ahead of the game along with a little luck.

            All my good wins this month have been on $5 and now $3 tickets. Today I finally hit something good on the Frogger ticket.

              Lost again on the $20K Winfall. Ticket number #006

              I'll try a $30 ticket next time I decide to go with a big boy. Last 2 attempts on $20s have failed. I can't afford to get 2 $20s at a time and theres no guarantee you'll win on any of them.

                I played like 6 of those today and won $30 on the 6th one. These games are crap. The lady at the store I played at said those tickets are no longer available so all of the top prizes must have already been won.

                  Online it says 10 of 20 top prizes are claimed. Crazy thing is Color Me Rich already has 3 of 4 top prizes are claimed. My hope of winning a top prize has dwindled away.

                    I have returned to addict status. So needless to say I am out of the game. I have quit several times and every time I return I say I can control it.  I do for awhile then eventually it gets out of hand again. This time I will exit before I drain my accounts to donate to the GA lottery. I always get this way after trying to recoup my losses only to be further in the hole and can't get out. It's been fun and depressing all at the same time. Good luck to those who are playing.

                        The ridiculously greedy GA lottery are coming up next week with another $20 ticket with a top prize less than 1 million. It's nothing but profit for those people with this kind of games, this are cash cows and they know it. To make matters worse, this games don't even have bad good for $500 and 1k. Just bad.

                        Falcon out.

                          First day release luck today. 

                          Played the 2 $1 Red White Blue both lost

                          $3 Let's Win This (Which has decent odds) #099 $5 winner

                          $5 $, no seriously thats what its called lol, #059 $20 winner! Banana

                          So $10 spent and $25 back! 

                          New $20 ticket seems worse than the 20K winfall odds wise even though the overall odds are pretty close. 

                          Might play again tomorrow, but we'll see.

                            Finally got some luck today. Played 1 $25 Jumbo, 1 $20k windfall and 2 $30 super max. The $20 k windfall hit for $50, the second $30 super max hit for $60, and the $25 Jumbo hit for $200!!

                            Now look up the odds for this particular prize and make your comment. Walked out with a nice $200 profit. Falcon out.

                              Wow! Nice hit Falcon. 1:1200 odds just to get $200 on a $25 ticket. I have played only a few of those and got $30 and 3 $50. I did have a little redemption the day I "quit" and will post later.
