Some Lotto aka "Daily Chance" Updates; Mafia Wars Strategy Guide

So, couple changes to the Mafia Wars Lotto.

First, the name was changed to "Daily Chance". This is probably due to state gambling laws, state general attorneys generally do not allow companies to have free term over the name "lotto".

Second, strangely enough, the rewards were reduced:

Requirement
Daily Chance Prizes
5 matching balls
333 reward points (1000 / number of winners)
4 matching balls
8 reward points (25 / number of winners)
3 matching balls
A Daily Chance collection piece
2 matching balls
An unused Daily Chance ticket
1 matching balls
A random loot item

Four matching balls = 8 reward points? I mean, what are the odds for just 8 reward points? Weird.

Third, you get a point for each daily chance ticket you play. You can let these points build up to 6 total points and exchange them for rewards.

1 Ticket: Random Collection Item
2 Tickets: +10 Stamina
3 Tickets: +30 Energyy
4 Tickets: +1 Ticket
5 Tickets: +1 Stat Point
6 Tickets: +1-5 Godfather Points

This is actually pretty nice because without buying any reward points, you can collect an extra godfather points per week. Collecting on average 3 Godfather Points per turn in is equivalent to 1 stat point, so if you are going to get stat points, turn it in at 5 tickets.

Conclusion

I think the point of cutting the rewards was to level out the rewards from automatic rewards from playing lotto ticket. The only problem is the reward points are so low from playing tickets it makes the drawing hardly worth even waiting for. Aside from the lotto collection or winning 333 reward points, the rewards are not too exciting.

  1. for 3 tickets, it gives you 30 energy for you to use or it adds into your maximum energy?

  2. When I completed 6 tickets in the Daily Chance, it only offered me 1 GF point, so maybe it is random?

  3. They could be updating as they go along, I will double check

    ReplyDelete
  4. I don't get offered anything just for submitting tickets :(

    ReplyDelete
  5. WTH. I didnt know about this. How come no one called me? :P

    But jokes aside what are the rewards i get if i dont play my tickets? You said,

    6 Tickets: +5 Godfather Points

    Does this still hold true?

  6. I guess the 5-Ball and 4-Ball prizes are divided by the number of winners. There have been three players with 5 correct balls, so the 1000 GF are dived between the three. The same is true for the GF points for 4 Balls.

    The points mentioned to turn in. How do I get them, as I have not seen such feature yet.

  7. In the daily chance ticket mastery, the first tier it says you can receive a random collection item... does anyone know if that includes the Daily Chance Collection (the one with all the casino gear?) I assumed it would, but I've done it a bunch of times already and keep getting the same old stuff from the Street thug and Soldier tiers, even though I'm a skilled Consigliere...

    ReplyDelete
  8. i don't have option to exchange lotto ticket :/

    ReplyDelete
  9. I can't see this feature either.

    But i don't think you'll get a daily chance item by playing a ticket to receive a random item. You just have to hit 3 balls, and i was lucky to do so last week ^^

    ReplyDelete
  10. I have the updated daily chance and have been receiving a favor point daily for signing on. On continuous days, it doubles. My husband does not have any of the updates but we use the same computer, internet etc. How do we update his profile?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Same case with my husband. He gets daily reward points and I don't. He matched 1 number in 4 tickets.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Has anyone ever won any of the daily chance collection?

    ReplyDelete
  13. I won the bingo card last week. It's the only piece I have.

    ReplyDelete
  14. i won the slot machines last week, only card i have

    does anyone know how to update to the new daily chance page ? where you can play tickets...

    ReplyDelete
  15. It's beta, they'll get everyone on it when they get a chance.

    ReplyDelete
  16. hi, i dont have this feature yet, but my friend does, is it a random thing or is everyone gettin it? soon or later.
    thank for your time :D

    ReplyDelete
  17. I have 4 different MW accounts, and the only one I see the daily chance option is the one that I spent $10 to get more GF points, so I could get more skill points. Coincidence?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I only got 1 GF point for 6 tickets too. Seems 5 tickets for 1 skill point is the winner at this point.

    ReplyDelete
  19. What do you get for vaulting the lotto collection?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Has anyone observed? level 2 mastery will not give 10 stamina points. IT RESTORES IT TO THE MAX :-) Its better than a stamina recharge by the godfather :-) Thank me -> akshay.live@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm not seeing this. Can someone confirm this is true and the exact steps required to get 5 reward points for submitting 6 lotto tickets.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Got 2 GF points for 6 tickets. Is it random? I see people above got 1 and article states 5. Just get the stat point.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I won a daily chance collection bingo card but it won't let me send it, is this just a glitch or a permanent thing?

    ReplyDelete
  24. If I take the Stat Point for 5 tickets, do I still get to play the lotto for that week with those same 5 tickets? Or am I "withdrawing" my tickets from the contest by cashing them in early?

    ReplyDelete
  25. hey guys, i am submitting all tickets available to me...but haven't even seen the ticket mastery feature...i submit at-least 6 tickets per week yet so far no godfather points were given to me....

    any reason??/

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ram, you might be forgetting to click "claim your prize" in the daily chance page.

    ReplyDelete
  27. @above comment.....i don't even see that "claim your prize" button when i submit tickets.....the ticket mastery bar is also not displayed for me

    ReplyDelete
  28. I don't see the "claim your prize" button either. Do only certain users have this feature?

    ReplyDelete
  29. its beta... only a few people have it now

    ReplyDelete
  30. hey wtf? i had 2accounts, one of them had ticket mastery, the other didnt have.
    i got a diamond ring from the 1st ticket and the ticket mastery level is gone??!?

    ReplyDelete
  31. i only had one Godfather point for six tickets... :-(

    ReplyDelete
  32. the best thing ive won from the daily chance is baccarat shoe. only one i have

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    Level 3 - +5 Stamina to current
    Level 4 - +1 Skill Point
    Level 5 - +20 Energy to current

    ReplyDelete
  35. So has anyone completed the "lotto" collection tier? If so, what does it offer? I've long since given up on it.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Vaulting the Daily Chance Collection gives you an extra 10% chance on loot drops

    And by the way, I got 3 GF points for 6 mastery once

    ReplyDelete
  37. what boost does vaulting the daily chance items give you?

    ReplyDelete
  38. i have doubles of the dice and the deck of cards. I would like to trade someone one of these items for one that i dont have....if interested, let me know....

    ReplyDelete
  39. Be careful with the decks of cards. I gave mine away thinking it was the consumable from the low tiers... The recipient was kind enough to send me back 10 Gaff Hooks as a "thank you" but it was small consolation.

    ReplyDelete
  40. maybe you get the updates if you play more often, I remember that when I played less then my fiance she could only have 3 items where as I could have 5, little by little as I played more I could only have 3 just lilke here. and now i play more than she does and I get points each day, I thought one day I got 3 or 4 gf points.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Everyone has different features. A friend of mine gets way more money for his New York properties and collects it like Cuba and Moscow. Also, I get different options for my ticket mastery. 1 ticket is random collection item. 2 tickets is a free ticket, 3 tickets is 5 stamina points (assuming refill, but unsure), 4 tickets is 1 skill point, 5 is 20 energy, and 6 is reward points.

    ReplyDelete
  42. If anyone wants to trade their lotto items that they dont want...look me up...we can talk!

    My name on Facebook is Giver Frame. Send me a friends request with a message that you want to trade lotto items! :-)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  45. i just got 4 GF points, when i submitted 6 daily chance tickets..i guess i was just lucky

    ReplyDelete
  46. I vaulted the "Daily Chance Collection" and it said I received the 10% but now it does not show I vaulted the collection. Can anyone explain why it does not show I vaulted the collection?

    ReplyDelete

  51. I am in desperate need of the roulette wheel and the baccarat shoe. High level player with all the good loot. I also have an extra slot machine to trade one for one. Any takers? Let's talk! http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?ref=profile&id=580292001

    ReplyDelete
  52. There is a right strategy to win a daily chance item?

    ReplyDelete
  53. You have to get all the matching ball numbers on the same ticket, not between all your tickets. That's why you only got two lower prizes.

    ReplyDelete
  54. i filled my daily chance bar and then it reset back to zero and i lost my free gift any ideas where it went?

    ReplyDelete
  55. What i see was 500rp for 5 matching
    9 rp for 4 matching
    and rest you know - nothing xP
