Scratch offs and some lottery games give free plays as a minor prize.  How often do they win for you?   In Florida my wheel often wins a bunch of Pick-5 two number free QP plays, they never win . . . I post this in the hope fate will now prove me so very wrong.    Wink

      I voted I've never seen a free ticket. Scratchers, yeah, but in Illinois they don't convert to free Fantasy Five tickets or tickets for any jackpot game.A scratcher free ticket only gets another equivalent priced scratcher.

      I know justxploring once posted about scratchers in Florida generating free ticket quick picks that won a couple of jackpots.

      That's kind of like a double dose of where's the justice, isn't it?

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      Lep

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

        Same here Coin Toss. We don't win free tickets from playing the games in my state. Except, with scratch off tickets, sometimes.

          NY Take 5 gives a Free Play (FP) if you hit 2 of 5, so I get a few of those.  I have hit for 20'ish a few times on the FP's.  I do notice that the Take 5 Jackpot is won alot by FP's.  

          Back on 5/28 there were 2 Jackpot winners of Take 5 - both were FP's

          Money won is twice as good as money earned!

            I voted never, Bob.

            Free tickets are one of the tickets I have big problems with.

            The other ones I have big problems with are the ones I pay for.

              In FL. MANY free qp's come up big in Fantasy Five. Not mine, but many others.

Good, bad or otherwise. You'll maybe get lost in it, tied up in it a little bit, but if you work your way through that the real you shows up, I think. Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace

                  Basically when we "win" a free ticket the lottery is telling us how to spend our winnings and this is especially true when the free ticket must be a QP in games like Fantasy 5. You wheeled your numbers but you can't use the winnings to play your numbers in the next drawing.

                  If the winnings must be a future play than the player should have the same option to either pick the numbers or get a QP they had when they bought their first ticket.

                            We have to put our heads together on this fast food franchise plan I have.

                            It's called "Mashed Potatoes And Gravy Hut"

                            There's no way we could lose money on this deal brother! NO WAY!

                            Everybody loves mashed potatoes and gravy!

                              Sounds like the kind of marketing strategy that gave us the short lived Big Wang Hot Dog Huts chain.  "Everybody wants one!"
