California's scratch-off tickets have become a scam. What happened to the tickets with the three letters? I would hit on those with regularity. The tickets they use now with the PDF417 bar code are a joke. I've hit for $100 or more three times since they started using the ones they use presently, two $100 winner's from $10 tickets and one $500 winner from a $5 ticket. I use to hit $100 winning tickets from $3 tickets all the time before the switch. Here's a list of the winning tickets I can remember winning from 2001 up to around 2007:
(1) $1,000 (from a $5 ticket)
(2) $500 ($2 ticket and a $3 ticket)
(2) $300 ($3 ticket's)
(4) $250 ($2 ticket, $3 ticket, two $5 tickets)
(1) $200 ($5 ticket)
(2) $150 ($3 ticket and a 5$ ticket)
I'm not even going to try to remember how many $100 winners I had won from that period. Needless to say, it was a lot.
From around 2007 to present day, I've only managed three tickets that paid $100+.
They also destroyed the Hot Spot game around the same time....
Who's responsible for this??
