So far I have spent $23 and won $12. NY Lottery has a promotion this month, buy one $5 ticket and get $1 your next purchase. I only purchase one per draw. I have to admit its a little price. Just matching the property number (1-28) the payout is $7 which is a complete joke. The Power-Ball number (1-35) match pays $4. It should be at triple the amount for a $5 ticket. Theres only a 4% chance of even matching the property number.

    I think too expensive, too complicated, and I knew there would be a winner right off the bat, they rig it that way

    Every time with a new game it just doesnt appeal to me I think it will be a flop

      I'm going to play it for awhile, I split a ticket every Fri with a co-worker so it's not to bad.

        I do wish there was a higher payout for the smaller prizes. For example, you only win $100k for matching the 5 numbers. It should be at least $250k or $500k. But, I'm going to keep playing. Looking forward to it capping out at $25 million. There will eventually be dozens of million dollar winners, which is great. I'm over jackpot games where ONE lucky person wins $200 million bucks. Like anyone really needs that much money........

            Not worth playing until the maximum jackpot has been reached and >40-50 second place prizes are possible. The jackpot is a sad $15M cash option or $25M annuity as this is meant to be many people winning a decent amount. Even if you do win second place and get the $1M cash it will be taxed to around $600k so it is not a millionaires club in my books.

              i played it when it came out. Honestly, i dont like the game. For $5 bucks, dont make me do extra work to enter  things online, track things, raffles, etc. I will stick with p6 , pb, or mega millions. I dont like the cap on the jackpot either.No Pity!

                I do not think that this game will reach 40-50 second place prizes. I might get won at $25M and $16M Club prizes.

                  How many times does the Mega millions and Powerball jackpot have to roll to have 16M in second prizes?

                    Casual lottery players spend the most money on lottery games. Why would the lottery promote products to people that can't afford to play? The middle class and the rich play the most, because they can afford it.

                      By your logic, only "middle class and rich people" play $5 scratch games.  We all know that's not true.

                          This is one of those "what were they thinking when they created this game." The game will eventually be modified or morphed into another game, or it will just end...

                            There have already been several threads on the Monopoly Millionaires' Club.  The THRILL has WORN OFF, and we're OVER IT by now. My thought is, SAVE YOUR MONEY !!!

                              I tend to agree with you, but I'm curious to see what will happen when the jackpot maxes out, and there is a potential for a large amount of million dollar winners.

                              I wonder if (on a national basis) a very large group of players exists that really understands how the game works.  Players that I know personally don't have a clue that it's also a raffle. They typically don't get the fact that the raffle winners are triggered by someone winning the jackpot.

                              If a large group of players that does really understand how the game works exists, then I would think we'd see a frenzy of ticket buying when the jackpot maxes out and there will be 40 or 50 raffle winners once the JP is hit.  If no such ticket buting frenzy materializes, then I'd say the game is a flop.  G5

                              About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!
