Rather than stop selling them. Retailers should be required to post a recap of which scratch offs have which "grand" prizes. To be fair to the retailers, Monthly is fair. Retailers could eat the cost of printing 1 or 2 pages off the internet 12x a year. This way, the lottery commission isn't paying to print, and mail these to the retailers.

Exactly..... Whats the problem?
Take the scratch off game " Holiday Lucky Times" for instance, the grand prize is LONG gone, however there are 6 remaining prizes of $1,000 each. So whats the problem? Most Lottery retailers have this handout avalible if you ask for it. And if you dont want to bother with that. Have some common sense and ask the clerk " What are the newest games?" Duh...it aint that hard. Corzine is horrible I agree but lets pick our battles a little more wisely eh?

Wally, please re read the story then comment . what there talking about is that they are still selling scratch off tickets in which "THE TOP PRIZE" is gone However MANY other prizes remain for that particular game AND your chances of winning them are far greater than winning the grand prize anyhow,

The NJ Lottery does have a web site that list's how many of the top prizes MAY still be available for each game in the state..But, if someone has a winning ticket and does not cash it in right away, for tax purposes or whatever reason; then that prize still shows up as being available when it's long gone..Should come up with a way to fix that. As far as Corzine goes..How did he get into office!? Oh you elected him. Go republican for a change and I bet things get better in this state.

Is it true that once the store clerk keys in the wrong numbers your stuck with them? I sure found out the hard way I played $15 dollars worth of megga millions in The Garden State news stand in Bayonne and the woman accidently played the same numbers twice and told me she couldnt erase them because she already put them in the machine. What's the fact on this? Never went in the store again.

NO, that means THEY are stuck with them...unless you care to buy them, simply walk out of the store, you have'nt stolen anything.

I just finished looking at the winners posted on the lottery web site, and just as I suspected, rarely is there a winner in Gloucester County. Almost all winning tickets are sold in the northern part of the state. What about South Jersey?? I honestly believe the entire program is so corrupt. Why don't we boycott buying the tickets and maybe the powers in control would make some changes in the consumers favor.

Ths is he most corrupt, unethical, wicked place i America. The state government/regime stays in power through its well greased political machine. Just today I read about 44 pols and other lackeys arrested by the feds who turned a blind eye to all this corruption for years. Today, in my desperate financialstraits I was stupid enough to gamble my lat hudred bucks on 5 dollar scratch offs - guess what? NOT ONE SINGLE WINNER! I will not spend another dime of my money on these games again - ever! Even Atlantic City has better odds than the state. I love the state's claim that lottery proceeds "benefit institutions." Sure the do, like the institutuion of insanely bloated public servant pensions, kick backs, raises o cronies, rip-off state contracts and all the countless ways the corruptos devise to steal our money. I am so mad at myself for contributing my money which I know will go into the coffers of these greedy scumbags. This evil regime must be voted out of power. Oh, and the judiciary here would make Stalin proud. NJ is a failed state, none of its pols have anounce of integrity, and I advise anyone who can get out to leave. Let this wicked place fall to pieces from within, I am disgusted with this state and its wicked leaders.

Hey Guys, sorry for all the typos - I just got so angry I could barely type! ;-(

This is the most corrupt, unethical, wicked place in America. The state government/regime stays in power through its well greased political machine. Just today I read about 44 pols and other lackeys arrested by the feds who themselves turned a blind eye to all this corruption for decades. Today, in my desperate financial straits I was stupid enough to gamble my last hundred bucks on 5 dollar scratch offs - guess what? NOT ONE SINGLE WINNER! Zero out of twenty tickets!!!(Now I can live off 50 bucks until next payday) I will not spend another dime of my money on these games again - ever!!! Even Atlantic City (Atlantic Shitty) has better odds than the state's mafia- inspired lottery. I love this Garbage State's claim that lottery proceeds "benefit institutions." Sure they do, like the institutuion of insanely bloated public servant pensions and other retirement benefits you and I would never get, kick backs, raises and bribes from the state treasury to cronies, rip-off no-bid state contracts and all the other countless ways these jersey corruptos devise to steal our money. I am so mad at myself for contributing my money which I know will go into the coffers of these greedy scumbags. This evil regime must be voted out of power. Oh, and the judiciary here would make Stalin's USSR proud. NJ is a failed state, none of its pols have an ounce of integrity, and I advise anyone who can get out of here to leave. Let this wicked place fall to pieces from within, I am so disgusted with this state and its wicked leaders... does it show just a little? LOL ;-)

So many complaints. As far as the lottery tickets go I know a few people who buy scratch offs by the "book" sometimes they win and sometimes they don't. These books cost $300 each. If you get $2 tickets you get 150 tickets, if you buy a book of $10 scratch offs you get 30 tickets. You just have to use your head when buying, it's a form of gambling. As far as corruption in the state no matter where you go you're going to find it, it's not only here.

Good Lord people. Bunch of dumb asses!! Just access NJ Lottery website and look at what is still available to win regarding scratch offs. Quit whining!! I think PA and NY have the better scratch offs in the tri state area. I've won a ton of dough with PA. Easily over a $1,000 and I am just a casual player.
