I just bought 2 $1 JACK-O-LANTERN CASH scratch offs, and one of them hit for $100! I have never won more than $20 on a scratch off, and that was on a $5 ticket. I am beyond excited. I had just about given up on $1 tickets, but now I am a believer! The winner was #279. 280 lost, but oh well! I had a good feeling when I looked at it.

I have been playing abot two weeks now, and my luck seems to have turned. I just won $40 on cash 3, 2 days ago.

    Congrats on the wins!

    CarHauler - $100 is superb on a $1 ticket! I've been playing for a year now, and $200 is the highest I've won. It takes a lot of luck to hit the really big amounts.

      Thanks. I also won [$4  #295] and a [free ticket #299] on these, at a different store. The following were losers: 294, 296, 297, 298.

      I read somewhere else in this post, I believe, that they put out more winners when a game is new, to get the word out, so that folks will play that game. I bought 2 more of the same ticket, #272 and #273 when I went to cash in the winner. Those were both losers. Has it been your experience that there are multiple winners in the same book? Or would I be better to try another store, or another game?

      Around 15 years ago, I worked at Winn-Dixie. There was a cashier that won $10,000 from a machine, then a few days later won $2000. I have no idea what tickets they were. But that was a long time ago. Do you think machines or cashiers have better chances? 

       And finally, what has consistently won the most money? I want to play $20, but I am afraid of that kind of loss. I have played $10 tickets 4 times, and have only one once, and it was only a free ticket (which I used the proceeds to buy the winning $100 ticket). I kind of wonder if playing off the winnings might be good luck, or would I be better off not playing for a day or two. Is there any type of pattern that you have found?

        Hi CarHauler,

        Yes, I often like to buy more of the new games. But at least here in PA, the new games haven't been very good of late. The most I have won on Spooky Loot is $8, and Money Money Money has done very little again. I would try the new ones, though.

        The Lottery can be very streaky. 2 or even 3 winners in a row or a few wins in an area, and then a bunch of losers. I don't like it, but it's what they do. If you have gotten a big winner, I'd try the same store again.

        A couple workers at Giant told about their wins in the thousands. You never know, but I'm sure they sometimes try for an advantage.

        The $20 tickets were very good, but my luck has run out. I'd change to a new game if you keep losing. Also, take breaks after losing streaks. I avoid $1 games because the odds are low and payouts are usually less. But try more after your win. I like the $2-$10 games with the occasional $20.

        Good luck!

          Better today, after my horrible day at Wegmans yesterday. Went back to Giant.

          Cash Fever #000 won $40, while #001 was a loser.

          Money Money Money #27 lost.

          Diamonds & Pearls #89 won $10.

            Wierd but lucky day today in a way. Went to a total of 3 lottery stores today and had about $300 in my wallet. Played only $5, $10, and $20 scratch tickets. Long story short, when i was scratching in my 3rd and final store of the day. After a few $5 and $10 tickets with no luck, I decided to spend the rest of my money on the $20 Win for Life Spectacular. #22 loser, #21 loser, #20 loser, #19 BAM a coin for $500! Right before I got the lucky ticket I had only enough money to get 1 more ticket. cashed out and went home feeling better instead of losing $300 for the day. Party

             

            BTW how much do you guys play daily??

              It depends on how much I win. #15 won again on Cash Fever for $20 (the only constant from before it seems,) so I have $43 to spend. I may add $10 or $20 or more to a day depending on cash on hand.

              Congrats! I've never spent $300 in a day, but the $200 profit was good.

                Spent $33 so far, and got $100 back on #11 Cash Fever. #58 Money Money Money lost and #98 Diamond Mine lost; really thought they would win.

                  hey matt, sounds like your having your best luck with the cash fever.  Same here for me. I won $100 yesterday on ticket # 17. Have you tried the new game Platinum payout yet? At first i didnt care for them I lost on 3 tickets from various spots. After that i won $100 on ticket #13 and my next stop i hit $40 on ticket #23. Mainly sticking with the fever though. good luck to you

                      Thanks, all! I have another big win to report - $200 on Money Money Money #47! $335 in total winnings today! You are right to stick with those even if you are losing, Keystone.

                      I have tried two Platinum Payouts (#8 and #23) so far, and have lost on both. But I have enough to try some more now. Yes, Cash Fever is still good. Cash Fever #4 got me another $20.

                          Thanks! Yes, I do pretty well on finding those $100s and lately $200s, and I'd say I'm even or maybe even a little ahead overall with the Lottery. But I'd love to be lucky enough to win $1,000 or more. Hope we all get big ones!

                            I put $50 of my big wins from yesterday in  the bank and spent more on groceries and things. Good idea, because today was more mundane. #7 and #13 Cash Fever were losers (I swear, #7 must be coded to lose.) I bought 3 Platinum Payouts and 2 won  $20 (#10 and #27.) Money Money Money #41 lost, but no complaints after the big win. The surprise was winning $25 on #99 $1,000 A Week For Life. That game never has won that much for me.

                              I just bought 2 $1 JACK-O-LANTERN CASH scratch offs, and one of them hit for $100! I have never won more than $20 on a scratch off, and that was on a $5 ticket. I am beyond excited. I had just about given up on $1 tickets, but now I am a believer! The winner was #279. 280 lost, but oh well! I had a good feeling when I looked at it.

                              I have been playing abot two weeks now, and my luck seems to have turned. I just won $40 on cash 3, 2 days ago.

                              Update:

                              I got 279, and 280 on JACK-O-LANTERN CASH again. When I asked the clerk the number, and she said 280, I almost fainted. I knew I had won again, I just knew it! But I didn't. #279 lost this time around, as did 280. Oh well, back to the drawing board. As a side note, I won Cash 3 again, 2 Sundays in a row! I know this is mostly a PA forum, but I am from GA. It looks like JACK-O-LANTERN CASH has run its course, anyone else having any luck with it? I don't usually play the $1 games, I just felt lucky on those. What is winning with any regularity in GA, specifically the Marietta area?
