Interesting device, but really not much game there. It's lottery themed, and almost as random.

It's surprising how ofter the winning ticket is still in the unsold pile for the red and white lotteries. My kids and I enjoy this game. Now it's time to teach the grandkids.

Surprisingly addictive and very accessible to the entire family. If you have a moral problem with gambling games, stay away. ;)

This is a simple game that the kids like to play. It's a good, light game for a family game night. No real strategy, pretty much all luck.

If luck is your thing, then check this out. A game of buying lottery tickets and holding lotteries. Win or earn $$ to purchase additional tickets for the higher paying lotteries. One of my wife's childhood favorites. She somehow manages to win a good number of the drawings. I'll play occasionally, but get frustrated when I can't win a single lottery.

Good game until you get to the blue lottery and you start going bankrupt and losing all your tickets. The first two lotteries go by in about ten minutes but the blue one can take forever

This game is just to fun. Yes, it's a roll and move game, but the buying of lottery tickets, hoping to win and then the lottery Plinko device, that picks the numbers is just fun. The game can run a bit long, but everyone I've played it with so far has enjoyed it enough, that it was never a problem. It's just a very unique and fun game for something different every now and then.

This game is light-hearted entertainment for all ages. The board is bright enough to light up the room by itself. One caution I might suggest is to remind youngsters that real life lotteries are MUCH harder to win!

Considering it's age i like this game quite a bit. It's roll and move but the lotto machine adds some excitement to it.

I loved this game when I was young. Always a pleasure to drop the little pieces into the randomizer (reminded me of "The Price Is Right" tv show's Plink-O game). Sure it was all luck but you got all this positive reinforcement of winning lotteries even if you didn't win the game overall.

Had heard mixed things about this, but in the end it was a satisfying game. While it does take a while to get through, there is something exciting about going through the Plinko-style lottery drawing. The roll-and-move aspect can be tedious, but it helps when you have players who keep things moving along.

Great roll & move game for kids. Yes it's all luck, but the lottery machine makes the whole thing oddly compelling.

I recently purchased the game used. (I really liked playing this game as a kid but never owned one--always played at a friend's house.) However, the seller could not tell me if there were any missing pieces & I can't remember that far back. Could someone (who owns this game) help me out & give me a break down of the pieces that go in this game?

The following is a list of game contents for those looking to buy a used one on ebay or somewhere else: -Game board -Game instructions printed on a inside box -Die -6 game pieces (lincoln penny, heart, horseshoe, 4-leaf clover, wishbone, shooting star) -6 rabbits feet (white path/blue path) cardboard rectangle markers -16 good luck gazette cards -3 lottery number triangles -Green plastic lottery machine (4 pieces: 2 triangle rear holders, front winning ticket face plate probably already snapped into main part where number triangles are dropped into) -28 red lottery tickets (one for each possible lottery outcome plus one Hold Lottery Ticket) -28 white lottery tickets (one for each possible lottery outcome plus one Hold Lottery Ticket) -27 blue lottery tickets (one for each possible lottery outcome... There is NO Hold Lottery blue ticket because the blue lottery is held once after all blue tickets are sold, then the game ends) -Money ($2, $10, $20, $50, $100, $500, $1000 bills---I don't know exactly how many bills there should be) Money is very easily replaced by color copying on regular paper since the original bills have no rear print. Lottery tickets are a little more difficult but they can be copied and either taped or glued onto thicker paper (ie if missing Blue 3-1-1, copy any blue Lottery Ticket side, then copy another color 3-1-1 ticket and modify color to make blue, cut and paste both onto thicker paper stock). Missing lottery triangles aren't the end of the world. Only one is really needed to set the numbers.

Very basic lottery game from Sid Sackson. Exciting to play with the kids.

maybe fun when you're a kid, but, like Monopoly, this gets old fast. I had this as a kid and played it maybe twice.

Good family game - albeit pretty mindless and almost all luck. But hey - I think that's really the point!

EPIC. This game is awesome. Promotes gambling, probably why it does not exist anymore...
