How has everyone fared with the $3 Crossword or Bingo games ( or however much they cost in your state if not from Florida )

Do you take your time and scratch the whole ticket or you just scratch the code ?

My best results are $30 with Orange Crossword Tripler and $20 with Flamingo Bingo. Has anyone won more ?

2014 Highest Winner: $500

    Here in PA, there's $3 Goldbar Crossword 3rd edition and $5 2nd edition Bingo. I have to scratch the whole thing and re-check because there are no codes here (still mad about that.) I won $20 once on the previous Goldbar Crossword and $15 on Bingo. I think that is the most. I've won $20 with Bonus Block Bingo $3 game.

      I actually love crossword games, here in New York we have a $10 ticket that pays a $1,000,000 lump sum (about $650,000 after taxes) and theres 4 prizes left. As soon as I'm back home i'm gonna stock up on these and hopefully find one of the winners....

       

      My highest win on this ticket was $30 but I've only played it 2-3 times...

          Bought 2 orange crosswords last night; one loser and one $30 winner. Won $18 on my 3rd Flamingo Bingo 2 weeks ago.

              i hate the Crosswords. it's too easy to miss things so i tend to spend more time on them than other cards.

                i hate the Crosswords. it's too easy to miss things so i tend to spend more time on them than other cards.

                I agree, they do take a while and regardless if I think its a loser, I always find myself having the clerk double check it. Its too easy to miss something on it, so I dont want to throw away a win.

                 

                Typically I always have the clerks "double check" any losers that I have just in case I miss a winning #.

                 

                Quick story: I save all of my losing scratchers for tax time, in case I get a big win and get audited. I can show the auditor all of the "losing tickets" to write off against a win. I must of had 300 or so ($10 & $20 dollar) losing scratchers in a big box in my office. I was going to toss them out after the tax periiod was over, but decided to check them one last time before doing so.

                 

                After spending about 3 hours double checking them, I found approixmately $280 worth of winners that I was about to toss out. There were 3 tickets which the game had expired and couldn't be redeemed. One was for $50 Bux. That is why I always have the clerk double check tickets that have a bunch of #'s on them. It's easy for the human eye to miss a winning #.

                 

                Good luck!

                    They were scratched by me. I used to buy so many of them, I guess I let several of them slip through the cracks and didnt even notice. Another thing I think happened is, I used to put them on our bar in the kitchen in 2 stacks. 1 stack of winners and 1 stack of losers. I think my wife at times got tired of them sitting up there so she would bring them up to my office at the house so the bar would stay clutter free . I think a bunch of them got mixed up that way as well.

                     

                    Since then I  always have the clerk re-check them. Especially on the $20 scratchers which have 20 different #s and its ez to miss.

                        Ahh <snip>

                        So I walk into my Publix today , the same Publix that sold the $10K BDB winner a few tickets after I bought my tickets , and there is a sign hanging there they sold a $45K jackpot winner on Orange Crossword Tripler. It took the last bit of faith away from me as I have played through at least 200 tickets in the last month.

                              in ohio the bingo tripler for $3 is not bad, however I never won more then $40 from it.
                              the odds are better then some $10 tickets though.

                              have a great winning day!
