    Excellent Vergie!! WTG!! I LOVE the symbols!!

    I make a game of that too...along with trying to find a good ticket, I love finding the symbols for each

    game. Oh..well..almost all of them. lol We have a Big Winner Spectacular ticket that uses a moneybag

    symbol to double your win. Trouble is when I find them, it's usually a $5 amount doubled to $10. No Nod

    It is better than nothing I suppose but I sure would like to see about $500 under one of those!

    Here are a few symbols I found:

      Wow, even a good one on Emerald 8s! I don't know how you do it, dr65 - every time I win on Diamonds & 7s, I get $10. Congrats!

        Thanks Caji!  Sometimes I'm lucky but sometimes not...don't buy many anymore...seem to get better wins when I just buy them once in awhile.

                  Wonderful Vergie!! Wow am I happy you didn't toss it...I think sometimes there are more winners in the

                  trash especially with new or confusing tickets.

                  The color scheme they use on some makes the bonus box on games blend in so people just do not

                  see them. This is very bad. In our state, they've removed letter codes from new tickets and replaced them

                  with scratch to cash boxes - bad idea for some, great idea for PA lottery. People that are unaware of

                  the change might throw away winners because they are used to being able to verify themselves a

                  winner or loser by looking for certain letters. Now, the new ones just don't have them. Rotten.

                  I don't think that saying, well, it's their fault if they miss it...is fair. Constantly changing what people are

                  used to is underhanded. Blending bonus boxes into colorful backgrounds is also underhanded.

                  WTG!! ON YOUR WINS!! and be careful...THEY ARE SNEAKY...Mad

                    Congrats Vergi and all. I always triple check my tix and once I am convinced they are not a winner, I rip them into shreds before tossing them!

                     

                    Interesting about the codes being eliminated Dr65. That would annoy me as I like to look for them when I find matching numbers/symbols. I hope that does not happen here in Ma. I think both states use similar codes and probably the same place produces the tix. It may seem underhanded but I question if it is intentional.

                      Hi Spin, yes on all of the new tickets there are no telling letters used anymore..used to be - T's, W's, V's

                      F's, H's, R's and so on...abbreviating dollar amounts won. Before that they used parenthesis with the

                      actual amount won within a string of numbers. These strings could be found on the ticket play area, you

                      could scratch the top or bottom of the ticket play area and know right away if you were a winner...that was

                      the simplest thing - you knew immediately if you won or not and didn't even have to play the game. The

                      same then with the change-over to the letter coding, look for certain letters and know if you were a winner

                      or not. B, Q, P, Z, K's were nothing. People scratched away at the corners and edges looking for winners.

                      It was also convenient to use as a backup/verification method in case you missed something or didn't

                      play it right...LOL I liked to use them to make sure I didn't miss something. Now, they are gone. No letter,

                      no parenthesis, no help. They say it was to prevent fraud..anyway that's what I've heard many times.

                      I accept that reason and don't entirely think that it was a method to make people throw good tickets

                      although, I do think their advertising and notification process could have been much better - they used

                      the website but did not do a good job of getting actual notice out to retailers to display in stores for

                      players information. A change such as that should have been widely and effectively announced rather

                      than mainly done by internet. The self scanner is available but when players are still relying on methods

                      they always used and are not there anymore, and they are none the wiser..they will be throwing tickets

                      away and the lottery will benefit from it. I blame them for failing to give something to retailers to display

                      and relying on them to do it themselves. They sell the tickets but don't change them. I have seen some

                      retailers hand print notice which is above and beyond and much appreciated. But the lottery itself..? All

                      I can think is: Pfffttt!

                        I found a vault on the Platinum ticket...10x prize shown...of course it was the minimum..Next vault I find

                        will have at least $1,000 under it!...assertive thinking Approve

                        The Cash Fever prize was doubled to $100 because of the red matching number 1.

                        Ticket #027 sure rings a bell. That might be a good one in a few games.

                              thanks

                              I play a lot of tickets. What I'll do is start with the $20's. I like the $20 tickets and find better bigger winners

                              there. I'll choose what I like first and see how I do on those. It depends on what's in the machine too on

                              whether I play more of those same $20's if I don't win or bounce around to the $5's and $10's. If the $10's

                              don't do anything on the 1st ticket out, I'll try another of one or two that I like. I don't play more than 2

                              of each. If the winner isn't there, I'm not going to chase it either. I think that's the best way to do it, it

                              works for me.

                              The $5 tickets..if they are sold out of some of the $20's and $10's I'll try those at 2 at a shot. I can say

                              that the $20 are better but you have to be careful and stick to a plan of buying no more than 2 at any

                              one store of the same type. Sometimes I walk up to a $20 winning ticket waiting for me...usually $100 and

                              especially on the Cash Fever's, I like those. Many times I got some good winners on the first ticket out

                              of a slot.

                              I never stand and feed the machine $100 on a single game..that is NOT the way to do it. I've said this

                              before..if the winner isn't there on the 1st or 2nd, it's not worth trying to find it...it may only be a $20

                              winner on a $20 ticket and then you're down with only $20 to show for it. Crazy.

                              A couple tickets from a couple slots at a few places is the way to go. Maybe luck has a little something

                              to do with it too...but being at the right place, at the right time does too. AND having a plan and sticking

                              to it.

                              Good luck and I hope you find some good ones!!
