With 2016 here I was wondering what type of new scratch off games your state has come out with

Illinois first new games of 2016 are underwhelming IMO

$1,000 = 969 winning tickets

$5,000 = 171 winning tickets

$20,000 = 12 winning tickets

$500,000 = 3 winning tickets

$1,000 = 420 winning tickets

$2,000 = 84 winning tickets

$10,000 = 16 winning tickets

$250,000 = 3 winning tickets

$1000 = 88 winning tickets

$20,000 = 6 winning tickets

$100 = 4,975 winning tickets

$200 = 2,919 winning tickets

$3,000 = 100 winning tickets

 

Honestly none of them are that appealing and I think I will stick to 4 life games ($5000 , $2500 and $1000 a wk) + $300,000,000 cash spectacular while maybe trying once or twice the $500,000 Big Money

I was sorta hopeful that with all the negative PR for Illinois lotto during the budget fight that they would create some new exciting scratch off to get some positive PR and players back into full swing of things. That does not appear to be happening and I am wondering if scratch off sales and other Illinois games (Not Mega/PB) have recovered

    nothing yet here but on $10 cards in NY you are lucky to get 200 winners combined out of 17 million tickets or so of more than $500
    the newest $5 has 184 winners of $500 or more out of 12.36 million tickets

    makes me want to play IL tickets instead

      Didn't have the best in Ohio a few weeks ago, but went on ahead and gave scratch tickets another try in Illinois. I scratched one $30 ticket and won $30. It was apparently the fist ticket on the roll. I took that as a sign to keep my $30.

        Here in South Carolina, a few have come out this month.  I'm only covering $10 tickets since that's what I usually play.  You can go to the South Carolina Education lottery website if you want to know about the tickets that are less than $10.

        The first is called Gold Millions.  A $10 ticket with 3 $1 million top prizes.  The game went on sale 02/02 and one $1 million prize has already been claimed. I've been hitting $100 off these tickets on these like crazy.  This is a second chance ticket where winning and non-winning tickets can be entered.

         

        This one, called $250,000 Jackpot was released today.  I consider this a "surprise" ticket because the SCEL website did not mention anything about a new ticket being released today.  According to the website and the retailer newsletter (which can be accessed by anyone on their site) the next $10 ticket wasn't supposed to be released until 02/23 and it wasn't this one.  So when they release "surprise" $10 tickets like these it's usually because there's not a lot of $10 tickets in circulation that people are buying.

        Money Money Money, another $10 ticket went on sale a week after Gold Millions with 5 top prizes of $250,000 of which one has already been claimed within the past week.  Haven't played these yet as my time has been on playing the Gold Millions tickets.

        Mega Bucks is the next officially announced $10 ticket that the SCEL is going to release, next Tuesday.  That is, unless the SCEL decides to release another surprise $10 instant ticket between now and next Tuesday.

        Sorry if the tickets are too small.  I didn't want to make them too big and bog down any webpages.

        Hysteria's 2016 Big Wins (Georgia): None Yet!!!
        Hysteria's 2016 Big Wins (S. Car): Gold Millions - $200 | $500 Frenzy - $500 | Gold Rush - $200 |

        **Big Wins for me are anything at or above $200.**

          New 20$ ticket here in Texas. Every ticket is a winner of at least 5$. What a f-ing joke.http://i1378.photobucket.com/albums/ah120/andlev44/3D066395-8F5B-4B34-939E-4F3EFE8EC92B_zpskfwswk8g.png

            Or one could look at it as the most you lose is $15 lol. These lotteries are a joke.

            I think the golden age of scratch offs has come and gone.
