Went on a little run with the Lucky Times 20 ticket 20 dollar ticket here in RI.
I was researching and found out that one store here in my area was the top retailer for the lottery and had so many winners in the store it was ridiculous. So I figured I would try my luck there.
Went in and bought the lucky times 20 ticket since there are still 47 top prizes left of 20 grand. I bought about 15 tickets and won a little here and there 20, 25, 50 and finally hit one for 200 dollars. It was the first 200 ticket I have seen in this game and I have scratched over 200 tickets. Took that 200 and started a new book. Bought the whole roll 1 by one and grabbed another 200 dollar ticket but the book still beat me for 150. I won 450 back from that book. I am thinking that this store sells alot of these tickets so the newer books that are brought there have more big winners in them. My two regular stores I have never seen a ticket more than 100 dollars. Like an idiot, I went back to my regular store and bought a lucky times 20 on ticket 020. Won 100 dollars from it. Got carried away and thought maybe this was a hot book. Boy was I wrong. I bought the rest of the roll from 019-000 and got back 20,25,25,50. 4 tickets out of 20 winners. Got murdered on these 20 tickets. spent 400 and got back 120. So my thinking is I will never buy another lucky times 20 ticket unless its from that store that is the top retailer. The problem is that I always have to buy like 10-15 tickets just to grab the 100 or 200. Cant catch it first. The roll has 30 tickets in them and the most I have seen is 8 winning tickets out of the 30. That sucks... I am destined to find a 20k prize since my odds are good but having no luck. odds are like 1 in 6000 to win 20k. no such luck for me.
