Sorry to hear that. I got 8 losers in a row on a $20 ticket once in PA, but have never seen 10 losers. Are the tickets just as bad in NY?

Wow, Matt sorry to hear that! I hope your luck turned around the next day!

And to answer your question about NY tickets, they are worse - far worse. The odds to win even a decent amount have been ridiculously reduced.

    they actually better in PA imo lol - see how they nerfed set for life above - 25 million tickets in the game and not even 300 tickets $1000 or more

     

    and it a 10 dollar game nonetheless

     

    that $25 ticket also has insanely high odds of 1:3.82 - granted lowest prize is $40 but still

    1 in 3:82 chance to win on a $25.00 ticket should be an embarrassment to the New York State Lottery system!

      Unfortunately my luck has run dry ever since my $1,000 win earlier this year. Really need it to pick up to keep interest - so thanks! Would really like to try another state, but will take your advice and not play NY ones.

        I'm sure your luck will pick up Matt!

        In the meantime, yes, stay clear of NY tickets. The new batch is coming out tomorrow and....I don't even know what to say. A ten dollar ticket with a top prize of $600.00!

        Granted, there are supposedly 'loads' of $600.00 winners and the odds are 1 in 669.40 but the overall odds on this $10.00 are even worse than the new five dollar ticket, and the odds to win just $500.00 on that  ticket are at 1 in 82,000!!

        Unbelievable!

            I got really slammed on the $25 Golden Ticket today,I saw a woman buy 2 and lose and ended up buying 8 and I won NOTHING. WTF

              have seen i think 8 or 9 $10 in a row losers - funtimz i think u should stay away from the new ones too unless u like low payouts and bad odds - might just play numbers and take 5 here if at all

                Think you're right.  But those new ones being out...It is exciting!  Probably going to go back to drawing numbers.

                    I might play the new $10 game,Quick $600.

                     

                    The top prize is only $600 and the odds are 1:669. We should be seeing those odds all the time on $10 and up tickets,not some ticket that the top prize is only $600.

                      This really sucks. Bought 10 tickets in the past two weeks and they all lost. We use to have decent tickets. My favorite was set4life and would always win 50 or 75 on it. Maybe their desperate because MM & PB sales are down.

                        Haven't yet. I just keep hearing how bad the odds are so I'm not sure if I want to. The new ones are only one day old but how long til they are really old and not worth it? ( This in response to yellowpig,  forgot to quote)

                          did the math on all the new games on this thread (including the new set for life which they totally ruined), the $10 has WORSE overall odds than the $5 but that $600 payout is very enticing will definitely try it - heard someone played half a book worth at different stores of the new $10, only THREE winners (2 break evens and a 25)

                            That $600.00 payout is indeed very enticing but it'll be finding a needle in over 600 haystacks. Still, not bad odds.

                            Ever had a problem cashing in a winning $600.00 ticket? I have, and amounts lower than $600.00. You won't believe the number of excuses I've heard when trying to cash in a $250.00 or $500.00 winning ticket - 'Come back later, we just opened', 'Just cashed in three winners, come back tomorrow'....

                            One store takes forever to gather up even the smallest amount and sometimes I feel so guilty that I will tip them!

                            I guess it depends on the location and traffic of the store but aren't all licensed vendors supposed to be able to cash in winnings for $600.00 and under at all times?

                            BTW - the person who bought half a book and had only three winners, what does break evens mean? Did he win $100.00 twice?

                              was from different packs but was $250 worth - break evens are $10 wins

                               

                              stores can restrict how much they pay out - but generally any store can cash winnings up to and including 600 dollars
