its basically a typical hidden object game but with time pressure.

If i personally had a choice i would not have bought this if i knew, as i do not like a time pressure games. I want to be relaxed and take my time casually looking for objects (hey, everyone has their thing).

sorry, If there was an "okay" button i would press that. It's not bad, its just that i personally don't like it.

I'm sure a lot of people would like this game though.

If you like hidden objects game and dont mind being timed, this is the game for you!

Alright, this is the second of the Mystery P.I. games I completely finished, and the third game of this kind I played through. Contrary to the "Lost in Los Angeles" game, "The Lottery Ticket" offers a slightly faster, and more difficult gameplay. While there are no instances when the object to look for is described instead of directly named, there is no option for relaxed gameplay, forcing the player to properly manage time they spend on each site.

Adding to that, I found that compared to "Lost in Los Angeles", some objects blended much more into the background, making it hard to find them, and required me to use the "hint" option more often.

Since "The Lottery Ticket" was made earlier than "Lost in Los Angeles", I suppose that "The Lottery Ticket" still lacked some of the options given by the later games. I think it's quite good that the game gives you limited time only to find everything.

Overall, I still wouldn't recommend this game really. While it did take me more time than "Lost in Los Angeles", it still suffers from the same problems as "Lost in Los Angeles" and "Escape Rosecliff Island", with extremely repetitive gameplay and a requirement to be patient and tenacious to complete the game.

However, since I acquired it in a bundle, it was quite worth it. I'd recommend buying in a bundle and/or when the price is reduced.

I still have two more Mystery P.I. games to complete from the bundle, and will do so in the next weeks. As for the previous two, I will write reviews upon completion.

Pre-Release Review
I don't know why my spouse and I love this game so much! Basically, for those of you that have never heard of this, it's a "find the hidden objects" game. Overall a fun game.
