I used to play the $2 games a bit when I first started scratch-off games but now I have basically abandoned them unless I have a spare couple dollars when I am buying tickets

Never have won anything noteworthy on them and 99% of them seem to be losers

I have had better luck playing higher cost tickets and now usually play mostly $10 games with a few $5 games

I know the lower $$$ games cant have the great prizes available overall as higher cost games but they just aren't worth it or fun to play overall

    I agree with you that there are alot more losers, and that winners on $2 games are usually small. The most I've won on a $2 ticket was $10. 

     

    I will say, however, that $2 games do have some nice wins out there. I have seen pictures of people winning $1,000 on a $2 game before. Depending on your location, a $2 game may have a $10k-$50k jackpot as well which would be an amazing hit considering how little can be thrown down on them.

      Just My honest opinion.

      I always feel $10-$30 tickets are always better than $1-$5 tickets. Odds on them are so bad.

        I had a decent hit on a $2 dollar scratch off back in 2010 for $1,500. I think it was called Lemon Twist.

          Most on a $1 ticket I have won is $20. Most I have ever won on a $2 ticket is $25. Most I have won on a $3 ticket is $50. 

           

          I don't mind $2 tickets, but my luck just hasn't been there with them lately. I prefer $10 or $20 tickets.

            Ive won $400 twice on a $2 ticket, my friend won $1000 on a $1 ticket- I won $1000 on a $2 ticket- my daughter won $1000 on a $3 ticket.  I have won lots and lots of $100's and $50's and $75's on $2 tickets.

            The most I have won on $5 and $10 tickets is $100.
            Never won on a $20 ticket.

            Just my thoughts.

              I had decided to buy 15 tickets (5 each time) of the $2 game ($1,000 for life) over last week and a half

              Every single ticket was a loser ,, Every single one

              Yeah I am going back to avoiding the games as I just dont seem to hit anything on these lower games

                Most I won on a $5 was $50, on a $1 was $20 but I gave up when I bought three $10 and got zilch...I have not played scratch offs since about the beginning of the year...

                  Well in PA, prizes of over $20 on a $2 ticket seem extremely rare now. So I tend to not focus on $1-3 tickets. Most I have won on a $1 ticket is $50. Have had some $100s on $2 tickets, but only one in the past couple years. That was on a $100 Frenzy ticket. The $3 games are fun, but do not do well for me. My highest is $50 on a $3 game.
