BROOKLYN - The latest New York Lottery scratch-off game is offering a jackpot prize of $7.5 million. "Silver Spectacular" costs $25.

News 12 Brooklyn asked residents if they are willing to pay that much for a lottery ticket.

Most residents said that they would not buy $25 tickets since there is no guarantee of winning.

Another resident said that she would rather buy 25 tickets of $1 each because she believes there are more chances of winning that way.
