Here are the tickets I found at my grandparents over the weekend. I was trying to make them smaller in quality, so hopefully I didn't go too small that you can't see them.  The 1st 3 scans are from the old 79/80 pile.

Here are some more current tickets. I think they were in the 2003/2004 area of lottery tickets. Looks like they were still when PA used parenthesis to dictate winners.

I was checking out the odds. $20 Diamond Dazzler is 1-3.27 and $10 Gold Rush is 1-3.24. Looking at the older tickets. Looking at the 10/20's I scanned and all the odds match up. Strange, cause it feels like we win less now adays.  The old $1 tickets state " 1 in 4 tickets win, 1 in 10 tickets win cash".. Speaking of those ld $1 tickets. I have 2 grocery bags full of them. I plan to list a few on Ebay in case there are collectors out there. If anyone here on LP wants any, I will gladly mix and match 10 or so and throw then in an envelope and mail to you free of cost. I really think it is cool to find such old tickets, so I hope you guys enjoy them as much as I did. Ps: Thank god the handful I looked through that I didn't find any winners:) 

 

Some flashbacks to my old tickets with the winnin amounts in parenthesis

    Neat stuff. I see they scratched the bottom codes. I wonder if they were on to something no one else knew because some tics are not fully scratched.

      AWESOME omiller, thanks for posting!! What a blast from the past...I remember some of those up there, not the oldest ones

      but certainly from the 04/05...Cash Extravaganza was one of my favorites.

      Very entertaining - thank you!

        Thanks for posting omiller!  Jumbo Bucks was one of my favorites..............I like the name of the one that says Strike It Rich; hope some players here snag a grand prize and "strike it rich".

        Big Wins For All!

          No problem guys. I gree about Jumbo Bucks. I always remember doing well. 2004 was right after I left the grocery store job, so I went through a lull of not playing tickets until 08/09. I liked Cash Extravaganza, but I am thinking that one was more current unless they did a retread of them(shocking). I found this when trying to google the old tickets. Lottery started in 1971
