Next week I finally get a vacation to Florida and I am quite stoked about it.

I think most any state has better scratch offs than Tennessee (except Kentucky).

What are the best FL scratch off's in your opinion, by denomination:

$1

2

3

5

10

20

other?

These are the amounts TN sells theirs in so I am thinking it is roughly the same in FLA.

I tend to stay away from games about to expire, so please let me know which those are, if you know.

 

Thanks in advance and good luck scratchin'!

    Based on top prizes remaining and odds these are best in my opinion

     

    $1 -  Pirates Gold

     

    $2 -  Monthly Bonus

     

    $3 -  Lucky Symbol Crossword

     

    $5 -  250,000 Monopoly ( Jaguars and Buccaneers are brand new )

     

    $10 - $200 Million Spectacular

     

    $20 - Lucky 200,000 A Year For Life

     

    Good luck and enjoy your vacation!!!! Hurray!

      For the 3$, Triple Bingo is fun for overall playability and suspense but it's terrible for odds past 50$. I've played that for the past few months so I can't add much input towards the others.

        Go to the Florida Lottery site and click on  Games and then Scratch- Offs and at the top it will tell you the prizes remaining....you don't want the ones where most have already been won.  They also have the odds on the different tkts.  I would ck. the site before you go as things change .Good Luck

          I promote the $20 Gold Rush OFTEN!  Mainly because I have won $500 twice on that game.  The odds of winning $500 are around 1:176 where as other $20 tickets set $500 odds at 1:500ish.  You also have a 1:15 shot of winning either $50 or $100.  Overall odds are 1:2.95 (better than any $20 ticket in TN)  As for the other games...  The overall odds are roughly the same as Tennessee.  Good luck and have a great vacation!

          How are you going to win if you don't play?

            such great information, thank you all so much!

             

            Tnplayer, it is great to get your perspective since you get to play here and there :)

             

            it would be nice to know the different odds you list for each game on the Tn games (i.e. odds of winning 50, 100, 500, etc) The website shows remaning prizes but only the top 3 tier for each game.

             

            Isnt gold rush the one where someone 'won' a million but the FL lottery said it didnt truly match up so they havent paid them yet?

             

            nonetheless, i hope to sample many of these games.

              You are correct...  Gold Rush is the ticket that had the misprints.  This has happened twice I think.  The printing company obviously didn't complete quality control efforts after the first mistake.  I hope they have fixed the issue.  With that said I play for smaller amounts... There's nothing like scratching off that gold bar for $500...  Though I'm sure I would be even more excited if I scratched off the $500K jackpot.  I would just make sure that the numbers (and letter below the number and prize) verified before cashing it in.  :)  In the case that they DON'T I would consult with a lawyer with the "misprinted" ticket in hand.

              As for Tennessee...  I wish they would release detailed odds for individual smaller prizes.  I think you can request them and they SHOULD be able to provide them.

              How are you going to win if you don't play?

                Amen to that!

                 

                Yeah I am not too picky with my jackpots. I have hit $100 once on scratch off's, and once on Powerball. I would love for this to happen more often, and in higher increments!

                 

                I think one of these days I will get around to contacting the TNEL about their website and their stats.

                 

                thanks for all the info

                  Tons of great games here it seems!

                  I lost 20 on the cash gold  one but won 15 on the $10 100k for life.

                  Is the $30 a total ripoff?

                    The $30 scratcher is over.   It ended a couple months ago. I played it a few times and always lost on it.

                      I read somewhere on LP that in Ohio they give back an average of 50% in the scratch offs, does anyone know what the average return is in Florida?

                        The Billion Blockbuster has 98 prizes of $1,000,000 or more remaining so I would say that's the best of the $20 games.

                        "...a chance to push everything aside, the circumstances that've controlled our lives, and do it our way now. Good, bad or otherwise. You'll maybe get lost in it, tied up in it a little bit, but if you work your way through that the real you shows up, I think. Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace

                          Yep, i tried that one. wish i could have tried more :)

                           

                          One problem i have is that i discovered i had a winning $10 ticket but i have left the state. I wonder if they let you mail these in and send you a check? it is a 2,000,000 casino action game...
