The same person who won the $3 million top prize in the Florida $3,000,000 Monopoly scratch game in November 2010 has now won the $10 million top prize in the Florida Billion Dollar Blockbuster scratch game ... now that's luck (or a LOT of tickets bought).

Imagine scratching a ticket to find it's a $10 million dollar winner ... actually, $1 million would be cool too :)

    Yea I saw that earlier and was like "DAYUM"...Thats crazy. I'm sure dude buys a ton of tickets though. Considering he is able to bank roll himself with a huge prior win only 5 months ago.

     

    Good for him. Ive always said once I win $1 Mill, Ill stop playing

      Was it Richard Lustig?

      Congrats to who ever it was! I hope I can find and utilize their secret!

        Sounds Fishy to me like he knows someone that works for the lottery. It's just like the guy from port Charlotte won 1Mil and 10Mil on the BDB. To me it might be luck or he might of had help.

          No, it wasn't Lustig who was also lucky (although not as lucky as this current double winner) and is trying to cash on the luck by claiming a strategy. It all comes down to luck as far as the major prizes.

            I agree they must have hints on delivery times and locations of big winners. He probably spends tons but do you think he would risk 1 person getting lucky and buying that ticket instead of him ? I think this guy cleared out the area and bought every BDB roll there was to buy.

            2014 Highest Winner: $500

              I agree James. I think its just a matter of this guy buying tons of tickets daily. I mean he won $3 Million 5 months ago, so he has the extra cash to spend. Even if he bought a roll a day at $1,000, that would be roughly $150,000 that he's spent, less his winings.

              I think this is a matter of him just buying from the right store at the right time. If he was buying tons of rolls every week, the real luck comes from him picking the right store.

                P.S. -  Just heard on another site (from someone who lives close to the store where he purchased this ticket), that this guy spends upwards of $6,000 per day on scratchers. Who knows how much truth there is to that rumor, but considering this guy has the $$ to do it, it could be possible.

                    HI James,

                    I am a newbie here and am getting caught up on past posts. 

                    I have always wondered about this.  Does the lotto know which rolls contain the winning tickets and where they are in their release stage(s)?  If it is truly random (other than the control over printing a certain amount of winners on a single roll) why is it that certain towns sell more big winners than other towns? 

                    For example,  the top five selling towns in Massachusetts are: Boston (which makes sense given it's volume), Quincy (which happens to be the home town of the Treasurer), Worcester (another large city), Medford and Methuen. 

                    All towns in the top ten for selling big prizes are more industrial towns (with the exception of Boston).  One store in Methuen sells the most lotto tickets in the state and has sold 4 $1 Million prize tickets. 

                    With the exception of Boston and Worcester, these are not the largest cities / towns in the state.  Do you think it makes more sense to buy your tickets from the towns that have produced the most winners (I am talking 1 Million dollar prizes at a minimum)?  Do the stores really want to sell winning tickets?  I would imagine that they would because they receive money and bragging rights but what if they don't because then they lose business?  I personally don't buy from a store that has already sold a winner ($1 million).  So wouldn't it cut into their business to produce a winner? 

                    Does the store know when they have received a winner in one of their rolls only they don't know which roll?  Is it truly random?  Twice here in Ma I have heard of the same person winning the $1 million prize a year after they won their first million dollar prize.  I bought 200 $20 tickets over the weekend - the first roll I won $1240 and the second roll I won $1300.  Can lightening really strike twice? 

                    Thank you and be well - Zippy
