Well I would usually say noway to this ticket.  The odds are 1:3.2 and it's $100,000 a year for life but something told me to play yesterday.  SO I did and I won $100 bucks.  I did a little research and the odds of winning $100 were 1:30.  I think I like $20 tickets now lol.

Congratulations TNPlayer. Md lottery just brought out a $20.00 scratch-off this past week. I'd be P***ed if I bought one, scratched it and got nothing. WTG on your win.

Thanks litebets.  I've played $20 tickets in FL a few times.  First time won $40.  Then bought another and lost...  Then on my 3rd I bought won $100. (note I didn't buy them all on the same day)  I bought another one yesterday after I won $100 and I won $20 (broke even)  I decided I better take my money and run because the odds aren't as low as I want lol.

Is there a cash option? Remember FL has a significant elderly population.

I've not read to see whether or not there is a cash option for this game;however, I'm not really playing to win the top prize.  I want to try and win $500-$1000 (never won more than $100)  The odds of winning $500 are 1:170 which are not bad (yeah I know a $20 ticket lol)

I tried the twenty dollar..$20 Million Mania...... Scratched and received......NOTHING......NOT A THING.....Cussing Face

But I took a chance.......(it was fun)

And as you said Tnplayer, I was looking for any king of win, not necessarily the top money. I guess, better luck next time.

There was a story on LP, a while back, where a women scratched off a winner of a few dollars.  She went back in and bought another ticket, and hit another small amount.  Used the money to buy another ticket.  Repeated this several times, and won the Win For Life.  I think it was NY.  Ya never know what the next card holds.

Nobody should be allowed to win NY Lose for Life. Or any game without a cash option.

Those are good odds. The odds of winning $500 on the newest $20 ticket in PA is 1:480. But then again, the odds of winning $1,000,000 (all-cash) is 1 in 600,000. Different places, different priorities I guess.

Let me see if I get this right:

Boycott any game that does not offer a cash option.

If I "forget" and accidentally buy a ticket and win the GA win for life and they deposit $52K in my account( pre-tax ) each year from now until...

Should I

a: kick myself in the a$$ for not listening to the sage advice to boycott and give the money back or

b: keep it and put it to good use ?

decisions, decisions........Unhappy

Lose for Life is even worse than you think. Quarterly (not yearly) payments.
