What tickets would you reccommend? from the 5-2 dollar range preferabely. I have me eye on:

Goldbar Crossword($3) odds 1:3.88 (I think)

Platinum Crossword $5 odds 1:3.93

 

Any other recommendations? I want to try and get the most tickets and odds for my $300.

 

Thanks and I will update my spreadsheet with the winnings and  losings

 

Edit to add:

This is something I always wanted to do and have the extra cash for a change to be able to do it. So I wont be talked down hehe :)

    Reeses ($2) odds are  1:4.39.

    Bonus Block Bingo ($3) odds are 1:4.03.

    Diamond Mine ($3) odds are 1:4.19.

    Birthday Cash ($5) odds are 1:4.15.

    I think the ones you mentioned and these are the best in terms of odds listed. Good luck!

        You're welcome - I buy mine from the machines mostly, at supermarkets. Most lottery stores will have a sign saying that they sell tickets.

          Once you're done scratching all those tickets, do a google search for "Pennsylvania Scratch Off Lottery Codes" with the quotes. The only site listed is mine.

          Good luck!

              -Nice site.

               

              Ive made up my mind im going to be buying a roll of 2nd edition Goldbar Crossword tickets. 100 chances to see how it goes im only hoping to recoup about 130-150, this is just something I have always wanted to try.

                The $5 50,000 Birthday Cash game has the least amount of physical tickets available with the most $500-50,000 tix available. Below is a breakdown.

                As of 11/4/2010

                $50,000=12 tix left

                $1000= 391 left

                $500= 1,851

                  I really wish Florida had the breakdown available online like other states. For some reason Florida doesnt think the players deserve to have this information readily available. Angry

                    There is a breakdown available for Florida. I know of a site you can use but will get banned (new members cannot share links or personal email). You will just have to search the internet and become a lottocrawler.........

                      Coalman, I have bought rolls of tickets several times. On a normal pack of tickets, they are set up to pay half your money back. Sometimes they pay a few dolllars more but not much. If you spend $300 on the roll expect to get about $160 back unless you get a lucky pack that has a nice winner in it.Good Luck!!!

                        Only one poster here had the logical reasoning when buying a roll of ticket. Research to see which GAME has the highest amounts of Unclaimed Top prizes still outstanding......Sorry but I dont go by the odds of the game so much as the Odds that the BIG FISHS are still out in the waters waiting to be caught :)

                        CASH FEVER stil has some top prizes outstanding and its been out awhile.

                        Stay away from any Win for Life game...both the odds of winning anything major is low and its been months since a ticket was claimed for the grand winner of that series......Its too far out there to be caught.....By now someone should have at least claimed one of the ten top prizes from that series, yet not a soul....I think they will wait til the last sales date to print the grand tickets ...and then it will go to grandma during a snowstorm...I plan to be out in every snow storm too !! (grin)

                          The 3 dollar Frosty Match and Win tickets might be a good choice.

                            Jiggin, thanks but Im not talking about Top prize breakdowns. I can get that from the FL Lottery site itself. What I am referring to is the breakdown of the smaller prizes other than the Top prizes. For example:$ 500, $1,000, $5,000 etc etc

                             

                            The FL Lotto site doesnt give the breakdown of smaller prizes remaining like other states do.
