    so looks like 100x will continue, have confirmation from agents at 2 stores in the bronx and long island and the manager of the gas station near me up in westchester

    did hit a scunion on that this morning so was very happy - new games on 12/29 (the $25 and 3 unknown other tickets)

      ok so report summary and holiday tour summary

      no games retired this week, 100x still at 4 top and 10 2nd

      BUT - $10 frenzy went from 3 top and 24 2nd to 5 top and 62 2nd, game started w 4 top and 40 2nd
      which means they reprinted the entire run of 18,540,000 tickets and 2 (yes 2) top prizes were claimed on that game last week

      also did play 2 100x won $500 on the 2nd one - went to go cash it at the holiday game tour since where I bought it they could not pay me - got the scoop on ALL 4 new games: $25 NY Millions, $5 Queen of Green, $3 Cashword Connect, $2 Find the 8s (however no pics yet except for the 25 - donafello featured it on his vid Thursday)

        I assume as par for the course they didn't adjust the overall odds after they added more top prizes to the Frenzy game...

        what is the top prize for the new $25 game?

          nope overall odds remain the same as with every ticket reorder

          top prize for the new 25 remains 7m - 12:47 in below video

            I think I might take a break from the numbers and just buy $20 scratch offs.

            The last one I bought was the cash 100 and I won $80. What's the latest one?

                new games - $25 ticket 2nd prize is now $20,000 was $25,000 on the previous one

                and only 30 $5k on the new $5, do I smell another crap king coming

                think it looks likely will just take my money out of state next month but hope to be pleasantly surprised tomorrow

                  Can't understand how they can come out with a $25 ticket that has a top prize of $7 million and the next available prize is only $20K? Would make sense to have more mid-level prizes of 500K and 100K and maybe reduce the top prize to 3 mil.

                    The new prize structures are done this way because they know people will still buy them.

                    I am done with NYS scratch offs until they come out with more "For Life" games. I'll stick with Mega and PB when the jackpots are over 100 million.

                      agree remember maximum millions a couple years ago - top prize was $5m 2nd prize $250k

                      either way think i am done besides mega and powerball over 200m after tomorrow has gotten to a point where it is no longer worth playing

                       

                      and ralphie really they do not want to even pay $500 - watch it be 1:1500 for $500 or something sick

                        Can't wait for cashword connect. I think the bridge allows you to combine word totals for a better prize.

                        2 - super scunion | 1 - quad scunion | few - triple scunion | 1 - super funion | some - double scunion | 1 - triple funion | lost count - scunion/funion

                        $1 - FTY | $2 - HUN | $3 - ZSA | $5/ $10 - FVH | $20 - UKA (playbook - HUN) | $25 - OQA | $30 ???

                          Yup I remember the maximum millions, that's the way it should be - a larger second prize than what we have now. And I wouldn't be surprised if the odds to win $500 on the $25.00 ticket were about 1 in 1500, same as the current $25.00 ticket.

                          But when there are $10.00 tickets sold with slightly better odds to win $500, it just makes you wonder.
