The California Lottery is taking scratch games to a whole new level: unveiling the state's first $20 scratch-off game today.

California joins 37 other states selling $20 tickets.

"The game itself offers a $5 million instant top prize. It's the largest payout we've ever offered on a scratchers' game,"Lottery spokesman Alex Traverso said. Traverso said the news is receiving plenty of positive response on social media sites.

"It seems like it's been something people have been waiting for for a long time. And California has really been sort of behind the times on offering this price point," Traverso said.

But, it's only fair to note that there are also plenty of those posting who don't think it's a wise investment.
