What were the most consecutive losing tickets you have ever had (how many losing tickets in a row) and how much was the price per ticket?

    If you don't mind me asking, how many tickets are even in a roll? Like say the $1 scratchoffs? I know it may vary by state but just an estimate?

    I never really bought a roll, but I did once buy 8 IL Wheel of Fortune tickets at once in a row, and I think I won on two straight and the rest were losers, but nothing big though...

      They vary between states

       

      In Florida here is the breakdown:

       

      $1 - 300 tickets per roll ($300)

      $2 - 150 tickets per roll ($300)

      $3 - 100 tickets per roll ($300)

      $5 - 60 tickets per roll ($300)

      $10 - 60 tickets per roll ($600)

      $20 - 30 or 50 per roll ($600 or $1,000)

        I have only bought one roll - Lucky Cherry Slots $5 game. There were 10 losers in a row with just a sample of one roll. I got $205 back, but talk about streaky.

          A good 15-17 losers in a row on the $20 games

          10 losers in a row on a $5 and $10 game is common, didnt use to be this way though

          As consolation ive seen 5 straight winners on FMC, but small amounts

          2014 Highest Winner: $500

            The most I've seen in a row (losers) is 6 on the $20 games here in TN. There are only 15 total on the $20 games. So typically there are about 5 or maybe 6 winners and the rest are losers.

            I have yet to actually buy a whole roll myself but I am sure I will one day. When I do it will probably be one of the $20 games but honestly I'd rather save that extra money for spending at a casino. Knowing I am going to lose about 50% of my money is not that appealing. So as soon as I start dreaming of a big win after buying a whole roll, I try to pound into my head that I am going to LOSE about half of it pretty quickly.

            Unless, as James says, you hit a good winner right off the bat. But I am just not that lucky.
