Just seems for the past few weeks it's been the same as far as number of big prizes.  For games like;  Cash King,  Monopoly Millionaire,  NY Poker and Royal Riches there have been 3. Then for Wheel of Fortune,  Cash x60 and now Fantastic 5's there havebbeen 4. Are the games usually dragged out like this...?

    same here funtimz - cash x60 2 were claimed around 7/4 but then they added 2 more so that 4, royal riches been 3 for a long time and that been out the longest on this list that is not poker

    maybe people already won and are not claiming them just yet - they do not reflect it in the report until it is claimed

     

    meanwhile ice bank, $1m winner and cash extravaganza are all at 1, and extreme 8s was retired w about half of the big prizes still outstanding

      That could be very true as far as someone winning and just not saying anything yet...That wouldnt be good.  Wheel of Fortune seems to have been a steady 4 though...

        yes no one claimed wheel that is right as for fantastic 5 it just came out - seems like everyone playing that quick 600 game but that still a terrible game

            If you live in NY,  not quite accurate. They even got rid of the winners atlas to help keep players in the dark and relying on their inconsistent updates for information.

             

            An informed consumer is not what they want.

                When I emailed them about the winners atlas they said they have no plans on bringing it back. To make matters worse (unless you're one of the winners), they don't always post jackpot winners on the website.

                then there is the habit they have of lumping different series of the same game together in the remaining prizes list. For example Set For Life just came out with a new series with different odds (1212) but they lump it with the old series.

                Good luck with the FOIL request. It usually takes me spamming them emails every day for them to eventually answer my questions. You might have better luck calling.

                  am not going to even get involved w the foil would rather have others do it - agree what u said about the set for life

                  but yes i am aware they do not post everyone who wins on the site, just people who win 1 million or more so who knows who the winners are on the $1, $2, $3, playbook, and other cards that have a top prize of $999,999 or less

                      Even some of the million or more winners don't get posted. For example the winner of the $1 million a year for life that one before the recent winner never got posted, neither did some of the hit 5 and hit 1 million winners. I could be wrong but I only recall one $10,000 a week winner ever getting posted.

                        they reordered that one due to popular demand, there was a cash x60 winner story up the other day, so is 4/6 top prizes not 4/4

                         

                        and yes i notice that too they skip numbers sometimes when they like this person is the xth winner of 1m+ this year

                          That is so not fair of them to not post jackpot winners when they should...Mad
