    Noticed the Black Pearls update this morning. It's kinda strange. Wasn't the Black Pearls at 5/6 remaining? I thought only 1 person had claimed a Top Prize?

     

    If there really were 3/6 remaining prior to today, then it makes sense. I thought it was 5/6 remaining

      Im pretty sure it went down to 3/6 because there was no winner for a long time then all of a sudden 2. 

      Anyway you can check into this ?

        OK cool...Yea I sent them an email but havent heard back...Its definitely possible they held out on updating the daily table, and then all of a sudden BAM they deducted both winners at once. Well see what they said when they respond to me..Will keep ya posted.

         

        Also, I requested info on the $10 LFL latest winner. Haven't heard back yet

          Do you think some jackpots get tossed and never claimed ? i.e someone who only checks the code buys one and tosses it out when they scratch a losing code ?

          Wasnt that the case on a Gold Rush ticket a few years ago, where a homeless guy found the $500K winner in the trash ?

          Maybe its the reason they dont publish info on all winners ..

            Maybe its the reason they dont publish info on all winners ..

            I believe that is extremely possible. I mean, some people never claim "Fantasy 5" tickets as I see them going unclaimed for months and months until they expire. I have a strong feeling some people strictly play by the codes and have tossed out Top Prize winners before. It happens quite a bit on Jackpot games, so Im sure it happens more than we think on scratchers.

            Supposedly the FL Lottery doesnt know when a Top Prize scratcher is bought, until it is actually claimed. (Not sure if I believe that or not)...

            But if that is the case, they won't deduct it from the "Top Prizes remaining" table because it's never claimed. This also affects the way us players play, because many of us use the Top Prize info on the site to decide which tickets to buy.

             

            This is what im thinkning could have happened to the "$2 Million Casino Action"...I'm thinking its a strong possibility someone threw out a Top Prize ticket. Its been well over a year since a winner has claimed a Top Prize.

             

            Good point James

              Yes, on Casino Action its so easy to miss those dam symbols. It would not surprise me at all if someone tossed a winner on that game. Especially given all the winners I have found in the last few months on numbers games.

                I didn't realize Black Pearls had the option for a reprint.  Or l suppose they do not have to say when or what they are doing.  I know that a * next to the game

                means this;

                *Denotes games that have been reordered or have been delivered to the Florida Lottery in more than one shipment

                Now Black Pearls has 6/9 with the *

                Well, I'm not playing that one, but I am curious as to how it went from 5/6 to possibly 3/6 to 6/9with a *

                I can speculate it either sold well and they want to sell even more by adding tickets and prizes  or it sold slowly and the Jackpots were found early and they want to make more money by flooding out losing rolls.

                No tellin.  I have to cut back and stick to a plan and within budget.  I thought about trying the Hard Rock casino and see if anything provides a better return.

                  Black Pearls sold really well around here. They could not keep them stocked fast enough. Its really odd because there are so many $5 games which sell so poorly they end them early with jackpots remaining. I got a $200 return on a roll yesterday but there might be more losers now ???

                    The Color of Money is down to 4/6.   I wish I could get one of the last 4.  May have to go to Tampa or Orlando, I just feel like for some reason the smaller surrounding cities don't have it, or maybe it's the volume of sales turning over the books which turns up the winner.

                          BRizzle,  Well hold your horses cuz I"m hearin a buzz and a stir,  Another Black Pearls may soon be deducted so it would be down to 5/9.

                          And can anyone guess whar this scurvy Pearl was hit?   Somewhere near me but just outside my normal routes.  I could drive 30minutes and get smack dab in the middle of Jackpot Bay.

                          Looks like it hasn't posted but apparently over the weekend another Pearl was snatched in Tampa.

                            I was gonna get a roll of Black Pearls later. Do you think its not worth it now ?

                              Looks like more jackpots have been hit.  Wasn't there 2 Green and Gold left?  Now down to 1.

                              Power 8's got hit 0/5

                              Miami Heat down to 1/3

                              Gold Rush doesn't have a * but I hear it's going to be reprinted and Jackpots added.

                              There should be some regulation, I don't understand how all those games were retired with remaining prizes and new games are still on the shelves that have 0 jackpots left, like "Black" and Golden Goose. 

                              Now newer games coming out,  I won't play those, The odds didn't look good at all on those.
