Here in PA there is a guy who swears the best way to buy 10 and 20 instants is by the book at 600 bucks a crack,  I tried it once and got 380 back out of my 600.  Does anyone else agree if your going to spend 600 month to do it daily or in one shot??

    I was at the store tonight and the lady behind the counter told me that a guy came in and got the whole pack , she said he came back and only won 500.00, then he wanted  the ones that she had left and only won 30 bucks and spent 200.00, from what i have seem in Ga on the new tickets for 10 bucks there is only one big ticket in the pack maybe....you can go two or three and nothing. I was behind another person who also got like 10 tickets NOOOOOOOOOO WINNER AT ALL.....Poke

      Don't do it. It's too much of a gamble.

        If I were to buy a pack of $10 tickets in GA it would be Jumbo Jumbo Bucks.  The odds are much better than that $200 million cash spectacular. 

        Jumbo-1:2.5

        200 mill: 1:3.26 

        I like to buy a book every now and then.  I usually save my free tickets or $2 winners for that though.  Just for fun more than anything.  I know the cashiers hate me but oh well it's their job. 

        Just my opinion... I bought a book of ($5)Giant Jumbos from GA and I won $640 total after spending $300.  I really love those tickets.  I had 7 $20 winners very close to each other.  (Within 10 tickets)  My highest winner was $100. 

        How are you going to win if you don't play?

          I've seen several people purchase tickets by the book.  They almost never win even half their money back.

          I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.
