hi everyone....i wanted to ask a quick question.....in the past week i won two $500 winners on the gold rush scratch off ticket.  i was thinking about buying a whole roll of the gold rush tickets for $600 this friday.  i talked to two different gas station clerks and they both said you are guaranteed at least one 500 dollar winner out of each roll. what do you all think about this...any validity? also has anyone else here had any luck in buying a roll of these tickets? thanks chris

    just to update everyone who's read this post....the whole thing about a 500 dollar winner is wrong! i won 500 dollars tonite on a $20 gold rush so i decided to buy a 600 dollar roll of them and ended up only winning a total of 200 dollars and ended up losing 400. best of luck to everyone

      Thhanks for sharing this story.  If you think logically about it, there is no way that each $600 roll could have one $500 winner in it.  That would mean that the lottery would basically not make any money off the game, because when you add in all the other prizes and the jackpot(s), thye would probably end up paying out more than the cost of the tickets.

        First off I just want to say I really like this game.  I've won $100 three or four times.  Odds 1 in 30.  The $500 winner has odds of 1:175ish.  Not won $500 on this ticket yet but lets just say I'm trying lol.  Best of luck to you.

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