Like an idiot I buy five of the ten dollar New York $25, 50 or 100 scratch off tickets. One can spend ten dollars on one ticket with the hopes of winning at the most $100.00 but I still took the chance.

Couldn't have been more wrong. Fifteen tickets total purchased, 001 - 015, $150 bucks spent and not one winner.

Unbelievable.

    Worst ticket I have ever played, I won $150 back to back $50 & $100 because some guy ran off 10 loosers in a row so I tried 2. I don't expect that game to last.

      Congrats on the wins!! This is indeed one of the worst to ever come out. It's so bad that I was able to purchase 15 tickets yesterday, all losers and went back this afternoon and the tickets were still there, and I buy from a high-traffic area!

      I bought the next one and won $100 so it's not a total loss but obviously, based on the lack of sales that I've seen I don't expect this game to last at all.

      I still say the best $10.00 ticket ever produced by the NY Lottery was Bada-bling!

          About 2 months ago I went to a gas station near a pool hall I frequent as I talk scratch offs with the guy all the time. He likes to steer me towards winners. He suggested I try the $25 NY Millions game on this night as a guy had been in there earlier & purchased tickets 34 down to 22 & they were all losers. I know he he was telling me the truth as he showed me the torn up tickets in the trash which were all torn the same way.

          Needless to say I purchased the next 4 & won on 3 of the 4 & made some money. I just think it is disgusting that a game so expensive could go that many tickets in a row with no winners. I could see a $1 game as that is not a big investment but a $25 ticket, that is a chunk of change to lose.

            Wow, I am glad we don't have those tickets here.  It is false advertising to call those tix $25, $50 or $100.

            They sound like they should be called "Minus $10,Minus $10,Minus $10,Minus $10,Minus $10,Minus $10,Minus $10,Minus $10,Minus $10,Minus $10,Minus $10,Minus $10,Minus $10,Minus $10,Minus $10, maybe $25, maybe $50 or maybe $100"  but if they used truth in naming then nobody would buy them!Smiley

              I thought the same when I went on a purchase spree and wasted almost $200 and did not win a thing. I like to go for the higher priced thinking that I would have better odds at winning. I bought 2 not a winner stood there and bought the next 2 still nothing and said the next has to be a winner bought 2 more and lost again. I just could not believe it and bought another still nothing. At that point I had to give up.

                Bada-Bling was a great ticket,I remember hitting $250's on that sucker like it was nothing.  The best ticket for me was the $5 ticket with the top prize of $500 back in like 2009  or so,I nailed like 5 of them.

                  Top prize of $500 on a $5 ticket? That sounds kinda cool actually. Do you remember what the odds were for a $500 hit? I feel like that's the perfect balance between being reasonably attainable on these types of games.

                      Is that unusual for NY Lottery? Here in FL, alot of our $5 tickets have a $250k prize. We do have some with $500k top prizes.

                       

                      What are the odds of hitting that $250k prize? I'd be curious to see how it compares.

                          That game got me but good the past couple of weeks. Last week bought NINE tickets in a row, all losers, the next ticket had $50 on it.

                          Yesterday bought a total of EIGHT tickets in a row from a different store, all losers, the next ticket had $50 on it.

                          Just unbelievable. I think a lot more people are scratching tickets at the stores and when they finally get a big winner they leave the rest of the losers to us suckers.

                            This ticket looks more like a novelty than anything. If 3D hasn't caught on in television and movies, why would it on a scratch off card?

                            It'd be interesting to see the odds on this ticket. I think it comes out next week?
