Thanks guys! It was a while ago, but definitely made a great Christmas morning. It was bought as a stocking stuffer for my wife =)

 

Its a tradition now she knows she getting scratch-offs every Christmas. Hopefully well have a replay =)

 

Lucki - Congrats on your Fantasy 5, thats awesome! I play frequently but havent got all 5 yet. Closest was 4/5 and 3/5 a few times. One of these days. Fingers crossed

I noted it was not a QP, because people think that only QP pay the Jackpots. The numbers I won it with was a combination I was playing for a while and finally paid off. I spent $9.00 that evening.

So dont give up on your numbers. You never know they might just fall.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL !!!!!

What a Positive Thread. Big Smile

Keep moving Forward.

    I agree with you, picking #s is great and has the same chance of a QP. The only reason many people say "QP is the way to go" is because more people play QP's which is why there are more QP winners...

     

    Ive been playing the same #s for a while and still havent hit, but its hard to give them up because as soon as I do, they will come up =)

    Speaking on Fantasy 5, have you looked at the PDF file on the FL Lotto site showing the past winners? You would be amazed at how many have went "unclaimed"....I never understood why people play the lotto and dont check their #'s at some point. I can understand sometimes people lose their tickets, they get damaged etc etc...But for as many unclaimed tickets there are, there are far more than the occasional "lost ticket".. Its crazy

     

    Anyways good luck!

      You will be surprised how many people buy tickets put 'em away and forget about them. Most of these people are not regular players. They might just buy a ticket every once in a while.(Usually the people that dont play regularly - WIN).

      Another thing. I never play more than $10 on Fantasy 5. No more than $5 Dollars on Lotto and $5.00 on Powerball.

      The odds are so high, that even if you spend $1000, the odds are pretty much the same. People will argue that point with me, but I stck by it. If it's meant for you to win it, you will win it with $9, $10, $20, $1,000 and even $1.00.

      Now Pick 3 and Pick 4 is another ballgame. Wink

      Keep moving Forward.

            Please share how often you play and for how much. Even at my $1000 per month for 3 months now my biggest win is only $200. From where you find these tickets big stores or random, smaller ones ? 

            Many thanks for the inspiration guys Cheers

              Thanks for the congrats everyone. This is definitely one of my favorite threads also. It's very interesting seeing the different type of scratch offs & other tickets in the different states.

               

              James - To answer your question, I used to play primarily scratch-offs (alot of them) and did tons of research everyday to determine which ones to buy. As in all Lotto games no one can ever tell where a winner will be, but knowing where past winners were and keeping an eye on the stats does help.

               

              First of all I stay away from scratchers that have just won in my immediate area. I tend to buy only the ones where it seems there is a winner due in the near future.

              Kind of a crazy story on the $250K...I had a dream one night that I was going to win. I played heavily for about 5 months or so to the point my wife keep getting on my case. I kept telling her "babe, Im going to win just watch"...She was hesitant for a while, but I had that feeling so I kept playing and playing. Sometimes you just "get the feeling" its hard to describe.  I knew it wasnt "false hope", it was something real.

              Fast forward to Christmas time a few years ago. I was rounding up my last minute stocking stuffers for my family and decided to go to Publix to get some scratch offs for myself and my wife. Christmas Eve - right before closing time. I bought my wife $50 worth which included the $10 Monopoly.

              On Christmas day, my wife was scratching the tickets at the kitchen table & I was on the floor playing with our 3 month old. She scracthed all of them and the $10 Monopoly was the last one left. I started getting  a weird feeling and decided to grab my daughter and stand behind my wife while she scratched the $10 Monopoly. As soon as she scratched the #1, she paused for a second and looked at me, then continued to scratch the $250K prize. I started yelling and telling her "I told you I would do it, I told you babe"....

              Needles to say, she doesnt give me a hard time about buying lotto anymore Wink

              Also, I dont play scratchers nearly as much anymore, maybe $50 a week or so. Our big win was right after our first daughter was born and came at the perfect time. We kind of lucked out and my name wasnt in the news or the FL Lottery site or anything, which we were very happy about =)

               

              I switched over to Fantasy 5 and have my own way of picking #'s. Ive gotten close a few times and will stick with it and see what happens.

               

              Good luck to all!

                Cool story. If I get a substantial enough win I will cut back on scratchers too.

                On a side note its interesting "NEW" is the code for the jackpot ticket on Monopoly. I remember when I hit a $250 jackpot on a $1 scratcher 7 years ago the code read "NEW" and at first I thought I had just won my money back.

                Do you know the code on BDB ?

                  I usually buy tickets from Publix or Winn Dixie..Thats where most of my wins have came from. The Casino action I posted above for $1000 was from an asian food market about 6-8 weeks ago. The reason I have been buying that one recently is because the game launched on 6/16/2009 with 5 top prizes of $2 Million. The first winner was claimed 11/12/2009. There hasnt been a top prize claimed on that game in over a year. That's very unusual. It seems that game should have a winner sometime soon. I think alot of people have kinda forgotten about that game because of all the new ones being released.

                   

                  I check the winners lists, news releases etc etc and have noticed that there are several wins from both Big box stores (Publix, Winn dixie etc) and also smaller stores like mom-n-pops gas stations. I do believe the big winners  pop up in all types of stores.

                    I thought that was interesting as well. Thats why I always tell people to not play by the codes, because anything over $500 , the codes dont mean anything.

                     

                    In regards to the BDB, the codes were EYF....Then on the $1000 Casino they were VTE

                     

                    Its hard to tell how the FL Lotto comes up with the codes or what they mean

                     

                    Good luck to you

                      CONGRATS BRIZZLE Cheers

                      Usually I do not play Scratch offs. I might start after seeing that.

                      A Big Congrats !!!!

                      I don't play scratch offs either,but i agree with ya Lucki,after seeing that ticket,makes me want to start scratching tickets..Yes Nod

                      (side note: The $4 winner i posted the other day was the first ticket i have purchased in a few years.I bought $3 in cash3 and watched a women buy a #23,so i asked for one them #23 tickets,and won the $4)

                      Congrads to you Brizzle and everyone else!!!

                        I use many of the strategies mentioned plus a few more. Like Florida, any win over $500 has an otherwise "losing" code on it. Once I find a winning match or symbol on any ticket, I like to look for the code instead of scratching the prize, hoping for one of the losing codes! I am sure every state has a version of the above puzzle-type ticket. We have a $2 and a $5 version. I like scratching these tickets as they take longer to reveal potential winners and the suspense can build if you find complete words early on. Most $2 tix here do not offer a $500 prize but cashword does. Does anyone else like slow-scratching these types of tickets? Any luck?
