There is a new $30 instant out for PA called Three Million. Saw it at my regular lottery spot.  Its a blue ticket about 2-3 inches longer than a $20 ticket. Found this online when I got home:

        Bought 1 this afternoon, up until then I was doing great on new tix. 25.00 win on $5 on ticket #3. Rolled that into new $10.00 game, ticket 000 $20.00 winner.

        New $30 ticket # 003 lost. I had to try it! Dont like that numbers go into 70's on this game. Oh well, too rich for my blood, walking away with my 5 bucks with my head held high.

              James. Funny the PA site didn't post it until after I got tickets. I was comparing the $30 to the 20's and couldn't believe the $100/$500 odds were the same. I had to get a few to try, but not ones I will be playing again

                Yes the only odds that look a little better are the $1,000 odds, and not much better. PA could have made this ticket a lot more interesting to play.

                  Boring as usual with the same objective: make themselves more money.

                  I've been playing all kinds of tickets for a long time. Got tons of thousands, zillions of $100's and infinity

                  amounts of face values and a bunch of losers. The best I've done on an instant is $25 thousand. A $2 at

                  that.

                  Now, just where these winners of top prizes are for $20 tickets...I have no idea...the lottery does and has

                  winners posted every month on the winners circle. How long will it take for a person playing often enough

                  to have come across $10k, $20k, $100k or $300k (nevermind the million, that's a spectre intended for

                  those that don't play often...the regular funding players probably won't see one ever I'm convinced but

                  it is nice trying) by now? Think of any carnival game...softball toss, water race, darts, pick a lucky ducky,

                  crossbow, ring toss.....dollar after dollar trying to win a big prize. You see the people walking around with

                  huge dogs, bears, tigers, snakes, rabbits and whatever else they stuff, so you know it happens. But spend

                  $100 more dollars and it probably won't happen for you. Do they pay these people to walk around acting

                  like they won? Did they really win? Did they just get lucky cause odds are stacked that you get that big old

                  softball in the basket now matter how hard you try....btw, I did get a huge cow once for the softball toss..

                  all luck with a little twist on the ball. It landed just right and stayed in the basket. No one paid me to walk

                  around with it, I didn't have any special skills...I just got lucky. Now if it had been another time of day, another

                  day or different balls, I wouldn't have won.

                  The point here is...it either will happen or it won't. You can't make it...you can think trying can get you that

                  cow, dog, cat, monkey but if it isn't just right, you're going home empty handed...minus a whole bunch of dollars.

                  There are 4 top prizes in this rotten $30 game. I say keep them and stuff them up your nose PA. I won't be

                  buying a $30 ticket that they bring out just to entice players into thinking wouldn't all that money be WONDERFUL.

                  I wonder do they really know how hard it's going to be? I suspect people will spend $90 on 3 tickets EASILY.

                  That's nearly $100....$10 more and you're at $100....that's 3 x $30 or 5 x $20 tickets.

                  The $20's have been acceptable in the past...$100's here and there and $1,000's mixed in too. I for one will

                  refuse...after buying #000 and #006 at different places....to buy any more. That's just sucky that they bring

                  out a ticket that's so obvious in it's reason for being considered in the first place: To make PA money.

                  They need to make tickets with GREAT odds and pay the loyal public more often. Better odds, more winners,

                  bigger winners and better tickets.

                  I'M DONE RANTING.

                  SORRY.

                  GOOD LUCK EVERYONE.

                  LOL.

                  I'M BETTER NOW.

                    I agree dr65, I wanted to buy a $10 gold rush this morning but he took them out for the new $10 game so I bought one of those, scratch it tonight. The gold rush recalculated odds are pretty nice, alot less tickets out there and still some nice top prizes. That's if there not sitting in P.a lotteries warehouse somewhere.

                      Just cashed in my winner from the daily tonight and got 3 tickets at giant.

                      All different bins #007, #012, #018

                      The 070,012 lost but hit  $250 on the #018

                      Still too rich for what I like to spend. Glad I tried them and won

                      But sticking to the $20 as my splurge tickets.

                        Nice one Chris!!

                        I caved and tried one at a beer store...ticket number 028 won $250, it was one matching spot with $250 under it.

                        I wonder what the last ticket was...$0 or $3 Million lol.

                        That's not going to make me change my mind about them and what they're doing and get this...why do the prizes

                        stop at $1,000 and continue at $30,000?!?!?

                        There are none in between, what does this mean? Solid garbage I say...these tickets are hard to read PLEASE SCAN

                        ALL OF THEM EVEN IF ANY OF YOU THINK YOU LOST....there are too many numbers in the game and I suspect that

                        2 of the top prizes will be thrown away somewhere. LOTS of numbers and lots of confusion if one is not careful.

                              Now you can buy some stuff at Weiss:) Good win.. It is a fading fad to me. 1 or 2 days was nice, but not something I am going to waste my time on other than the occasional ticket. The owner of the gas station told me that someone chased through and lost on 5 in a row. If they had 20 tickets per rolls would be one thing, but 30 in a roll just means more dead spots.
