There are currently two different $2,500 a Week for Life games. Game number 305 has been out for a long time and it is crazy-due for the final jackpot. As in, if you bought all the remaining tickets it would cost about $1.8 million but there would be $3.3 million dollars in prizes. (I calculated this number by estimating the number of tickets remaining based on how many break-even and 2x return tickets are outstanding). You have better than a 1 in 380,000 chance of winning the jackpot on a single ticket, and the jackpot is worth at least $2.6 million (since they guarantee 20 years of payout).
Game number 398, on the other hand, has middling odds.
My problem is I can't find any more game 305's anywhere. If you find some (and don't win the jackpot) could you please let me know where you found them and if they have any left. You can tell them apart by looking at the UPC code on the back and seeing if it has 305 or 398 in it. You can also tell if it has the 2-d barcode at the bottom once scratched off. The ones with the 2-d barcode are game 398.
