Overall odds of winning including breakeven prizes are 1 in 3.33.
At $5 per ticket, Power 7’s offers six chances to win a $200,000 prize. The game features more than 289,000 prizes from $20 to $20,000 and a chance to win up to 15 times per ticket. Revealing a “blue 7” symbol wins double the prize shown. The game begins with more than $19 million in total prizes and 1 in 3.96 overall odds of winning including breakeven prizes.
Lucky 7’s is a $1 game with 12 top prizes of $7,000 and more than $4.4 million in total prizes. Players must reveal three “7” symbols in the same row, column or diagonal line to win the prize shown.
