Please accept this Petition from the Florida Scratch-Off Players Community. As residents of Florida, we feel the current structure of Scratch-Off Games are poorly structured and need improvement to make the outcomes more reasonable and financially just for the players. The overall issue for (we) the players in this Petition is, we request a Higher Return on Our Investment. Lottery players are gamblers and like all gamblers, we gamble because we are seeking  a high return on our investment. If the structure of these games provided a higher return on investment, players, would be more likely to invest more money,  more often.

We see four areas that we are requesting changes/improvements to.

1. Fake multipliers on Scratch Off Games.

Requesting a discontinuation of the one, two and four dollar multipliers in relation to the cost of the ticket. Multipliers should be at minimum, the cost of the ticket that is being played.

Example; $5 ticket shows a multiplier, the dollar amount to be multiplied should be no less then the cost of the ticket.When players 'hit' multipliers that are multiplied for less then the cost of the ticket, we feel cheated by the Game and the State of Florida. (This leads into issue #2) 

2. Minimum Profit Wins on all Scratch Off Game levels.

Profit Wins should not be what they currently are. This applies to $10, $20, and $30 games.

Profit Wins should be at minimum double the cost of the ticket, no less. When players 'hit' for a Profit Win and it's for less than the cost of the ticket we feel cheated by the Game and the State of Florida.

Example; $10 ticket wins for $15. Requesting it be changed to; $10 ticket win for a Minimum Profit Win of $20

Example; $20 ticket wins for $25 or $30. Requesting it be changed to; $20 ticket win for a Minimum Profit Win of $40

Example; $30 ticket wins for $40 or $50. Requesting it be changed to; $30 ticket win for a Minimum Profit Win of $60

3. Increasing the amount of Winning Numbers on the $30 Scratch Off Ticket.

The amount of  Winning Numbers are increased on every ticket denomination in porportion to the cost of the ticket except for, the $30 ticket.The player is investing an additional $10 to purchase the $30 ticket. The player should have more chances to win. We request that $30 games have ten Winning Numbers, not eight. If the player is investing more money per the cost difference from the twenty dollar ticket to the thirty dollar ticket, they should also get more chances to win. This also applies to Your Numbers on all games.

4. Full disclosure of Jackpot prize locations.

State of Florida shall provide full disclosure of how many jackpot prizes exist per game, in any City/County in Florida. Players should have the 'Right to Know' how many jackpot tickets exist in any one area in Florida. The Florida Lottery knows where, within the state, they 'plant' these Jackpot winning tickets. So should the players.

The State of Florida advertises these Scratch Games aggressively. The State takes in Billions of dollars each year from these games. The majority of players do not purchase Top Prize winning tickets. The majority of players lose or 'hit' low prize amounts (less then $500). Players would be better served having these requests approved and implemented. We ask that these request be considered. The revenue these games take in each year should be more than ample to afford these changes without damaging the games or the States' profit.

Respectfully,

Florida Scratch-Off Players Community
