New obs:

#54 on Birthday Cash seems lucky, as does #46

BWS seems very randomized, unfortunately - hard to figure it out. I have won 4 out of the last 7 times, but on no real pattern.

#127-#129 on BlackJack and $1,000 a Week for Life seem unlucky. #95 on both seems lucky, as does #125 on $1,000 a Week for Life. As said, low 130s on BJ seem good.

#121-#126 seem unluckly on 10x the Money. #143 had my biggest prize on that game ($10).

    Matt...next time try #47 on Birthday Cash too.....#47 $50,000 winner posted in store last sunday.

    I've been sticking to extreme green lately and #'s 25-35 have been real lucky for me.  I also see a lot of 48's & 59's posted in the stores as $1,000 winners.

    Million Dollar Cash Fever #28 $100, #29 $20.

      Very cool, trophie wife! You saw where one of the big winners was - that's a first since I joined. Thanks for the advice!

      I won $30 last night on Diamond Mine ticket #54 - not sure what others have seen on that number.

        Unlucky numbers from the higher priced tickets I've purchased ( $5 and up ) seem to be #19, #22, #37, and #57.

         

        Lucky numbers were #12, #17 on higher tickets and between #105 - #110 on 2$ tickets

         

        It is amazing that everyone seems to lose on #22 and I almosted wanted to cry when I looked down and saw I had it on a $20 scratcher.

          Got anther $100 winner on BWS #91 - one of my other $100 wins was on #93, so maybe the low 90s are lucky.

          Still haven't run across lucky numbers on Platinum Crossword - got #17 and still lost. I am convinced it is the state's gotcha game. Didn't buy one for a while, and won't for a while again. Too bad, because I enjoy playing it.

            Congratulations Matt! What is your highest win on the $20 tickets?

              Hi, Stu, and thanks! I haven't played a $20 yet. I'm afraid of spending that much money. Plus, PA has pretty few maximum prizes on those $20 games. Are they still worth playing?

                  LOLLOL!!! Been there so many times Stu...looking down to see the dreaded 022. I feel like tossing it in the trash when I see it. Just once, and

                  only once have I won on 022....and after that win, back to NO WINS on 022. My gosh, if there ever was a cursed number, that's it. I'll die of

                  shock if I get a grand prize on 022. LOL! Right!

                    I haven't touched a 20 dollar ticket with a 10 foot pole for a long time!  I like the 5 dollar tickets best, but play anything from 2 dollar to 10 dollar denomination occassionally.  The only dollar ticket I somtimes take a chance on is the win for life dollar ticket because of the top prize.

                    Win a big one,

                      Matt...I've come to the conclusion that lopping off a zero on that $20 and playing just the $2 ticket is better than sinking $20 into one ticket.

                      I've tried quite a few in my time and sure, there are winners on the higher tickets $10 & $20 & $25 but when you can catch a $1 or $2 ticket

                      in a string of 10/20 or 5/10 and win $100, they are a lot better than buying 2 or 3 $20 tickets and winning nothing.

                      Today, just a minor example...Bankroll ($2) - ticket number 123 - won $20 Nothing big but more than a couple of $20's would have won.

                      With those, it's getting there at the right time...and right number...and place in the pack. If you buy from a machine, it's impossible to see what

                      number is coming out..you have to buy it to see it. (probably 022 lol) It might be ticket number 000 - by the way, I HATE them too.

                      They are only worth playing if you're going to hit $100 or more...but who knows when that will be. It's a bigger chance to take. Sometimes

                      they do alright - most times not.

                      Good luck!

                        Thanks for sharing your experience, dr65. The most I have won on a $2 ticket is $50.. yet I like to play $2-10 ones because you get more chances to win if you get more of them. I have a limited budget, but will keep trying for a bigger prize on a $2 ticket. I usually go to grocery stores and play the machines.. perhaps convenience stores are better.

                        Off to bed for me. Wishing us all luck!

                          Today on a 10x the Money, ticket number 055, matched number 17 to win $100.

                          I was a bit surprised but it was nice seeing $100 there with one match.

                          Interesting thing that is unrelated to this post - well, related in a way to the rotten ticket number 022 -

                          flipping and mirroring digits for the pick 3 or 4 works like this -

                          6's - 9's

                          3's - 8's

                          4's - 9's

                          5's - 2's

                          change/mirror the 055 and get 022, omg. That is the first thing I thought when I saw 055 then thought, yeah right, it's just another 022.

                          Good luck on your next instant!! and keep on scratching!!

                            I went to buy some $5 Bucc tickets and they were sold out, so I bought 4 of the $5 Monopoly tickets and asked what the ticket number was at ... #18 ... so I purchased the next four avoiding the dreaded #22 by a single ticket. I feel bad for the next guy who buys from that roll!
