started a new book of tickets, played 17 tickets in a row for a total of $510 spent and only hit 4 $30 winners. there are only 30 tickets to a book and I decided to bail on the book because it didn't feel lucky to me because the last two tickets I scratched were 2 of the 4 of the $30 winners and I really didn't want to invest any more cash hoping for a big winner.

 

 

overall odds listed at 2.92 to 1

 

says over 450,000 prizes from $50 to 1,000

    Played 4 today, only won 1 break even.

    2013 notable wins - 2 $1000 wins ($3 and $10 crosswords), 4 $500 wins ($10, $20, and $30 scratchers)

      Wow...I wonder if you should have kept going since you were already 17 in? I don't

      play like that but seems there should have been something in there. Was anyone watching

      you...like a hawk? They probably swooped in and got your winner. Those odds are good but

      it's for the whole run. I think they like to deceive people.....more $$$$$ for them, more ticket

      sales.

      You deserve a great hit - gl!

      246 ~~ 485 ~~ 369 ~~ 890 ~~ 705 ~~ 357 ~~ 129 ~~ 165 ~  007 ~ 225 ~ 818 ~ 440 ~  7775 5557

        would like to see the detailed odds on this game except they only list it on the back of the ticket and not on the website

          no one was watching me, maybe i missed out on a decent winner, not sure. just didn't want to buy another ticket kind of sick at that point.

            would be sick too - was doing some math this am on IL tickets - wonder how the $10M cash bonanza has an 87% payout - that is unheard of and do not think my math was wrong either (and the 300M spectacular and fabulous fortune payouts are nice too at close to or slightly above 80%)

                b.t.w. i went back this morning to see if the book i was playing from was still there but all the rest of the tickets had been sold. so they had a new book out with two tickets sold and the store worker said the person who bought them didn't win anything. so i bought one, it was a  loser, second one another loser, the third one $30 winner. so i quit after that.

                  I enjoy buying a book of tickets here or there as well in Illinois. I was going to get some of these new tickets today so thanks for posting the odds. The break even prize odds is the same as the other $30 ticket Illinois offered. Buying a book of these tickets and outlaying $900 only has a projected expected value of getting $390 back unless you hit one of the bigger prizes above the $100.  The odds on hitting a $500 winner are decent compared to other games. One question I have is the $15 million an annuity and if so is cash value $9 million?

                    prize structure worse than the cash bonanza but payout still at a very high 86.31% - u guys are lucky as most $30 tickets are around 80% - and NY's is 73.8%

                      yes you are correct. 15 million prize is $750,000 for 20 yrs. or cash option 9 million.

                        why is cash value so low - NY is like 78% or so of the annuity value not 60%
