lol Stu!

I've been *that next guy/gal* more than enough times already and I feel sorry for him/her too.

No Nod

I think the number rarely wins but one of these days it'll win the big prize and hopefully someone from the LP buys it! Can you see the ticket number in your state without having to ask before buying it?

 

The winning ticket tonight was #20 for $10. Time to hit a new store tomorrow.

    Chances are good that somewhere, sometime, someone will win the big one on 022. I doubt, though, it'll be me. 022 hates me. That's okay

    because I've got some numbers that like me.

    Big Smile

    In the vending machine, of course, we can't see what'll be spit out next...we have to buy one then go from there. Anytime that 022 comes

    out, I get a sinking feeling. Just once out of so many times, it's been more than zilch.

    We can see the ticket numbers if the tickets are in a display case or under the counter/glass top...I've never had a clerk turn down my request

    for what the next ticket number is, they're pretty good about it. I've seen a thread here about marks on different tickets...plus symbols and

    dashes..I have yet to discover one with a color code that's been discussed. In my experience, there is no defining mark that is a tell-tale sign a

    ticket is a winner. The ticket numbers themselves show more than any mark - IMO.

    This is a good topic, it is interesting to know what ticket numbers are hitting and which are not.

    GOOD THREAD!

      A friend of mine hit the top prize for a $2 monopoly instant ticket in Oklahoma last year.  He scanned the ticket and sent me a copy and low and behold the winning ticket number was 008. (My lucky ticket number)

      Also, not sure if we have any avid GA players or not... but when I was in a quick stop I saw three scanned $50,000 winners (Jumbo Bucks Classic) and the winning numbers were both 1 (not the ticket number the WINNING numbers).  I find that a little ironic.

      How are you going to win if you don't play?

          Uh oh - I got #67 on BWS today. Haven't done badly lately, but no luck today so far - #25 on Birthday Cash lost, and so did #120-122 on $1,000 A Week for Life

            Well, #67 on BWS won $20. See, that game seems pretty random. I once got 6 losers in a row on #110-115, but I broke the bank a bit to play out of it, and the next two (#116 and #117) were $10 winners luckily.

              I have 5 losing tickets called Honeycomb Cash and the numbers are from 123-125. I asked the clerk what was the best scratcher he told me Beginner's Luck. I won $10 and a free ticket.

              Aquestion. Should I stay with  the same scrather until it runs out or change games every once in a while?

                Hi! They say staying with one scratcher game for a period of time is better, but admittedly I don't follow that advice enough. I like playing different games.

                  Funny payouts lately....7 x $5 plus $15

                  Oh and on the 9's in a line....bought 10 of them and ticket number 089 was $19....I had to look twice, I thought it was $10...weird.

                    I have been reading about the luck some people are having with 022. Maybe Stephen King could write a novel about it

                      Today on Big Winner Spectacular ($10), #56 won $20 and #97 a loser.

                      #43 on Diamonds And Pearls loser. I think I'll stick with BWS unless someone thinks D&P is lucky.

                      #31 on Birthday Cash loser. #133, 134 on Reeses ($2) losers and #136 on Reeses won $4.

                      Speaking of unlucky numbers, what is the longest everyone has gone on a row (on one ticket roll) without winning? On $1 9s in a Line, I once bought 7 tickets without a winner. The $2-$10 tickets have all had 6 losers in a row at some point.

                        Wheeler, just my opinion, I think you should play the new ones...in the first week or two. They like to make it look like the latest new ones are

                        the best thing since the last new ones....little do they know, some people are pretty much on to that game. They like to give a higher concentration

                        of winners to *sell* the ticket to the masses. Then after about 2 weeks the winnings drop like lead weights and become no better than the old

                        tickets.

                        I play the newer ones at 5 - 10 at a time. The old ones, I buy one at a pop and figure if I don't get a winner on the first one

                        out, then the next one probably isn't a winner either. I do like to buy $1 tickets 20 at a time just because winners are more spaced out even

                        with the new releases although, you might have 2 or 3 in a row, then a skip of 4 - 5, then another 2 in a row.

                        I wouldn't play a game until it ends. I'd jump around with more attention to the new tickets.

                        Good luck and get a real good one!

                          I don't play the bws anymore. I did like it when it came out new. It seemed like I was getting the cost of the ticket too much or nothing at all.

                          I bought a string of Triple Winning 7's today and had ticket number 055 win $77 (double seven was in the play area and that's win $77 instantly)

                          This is the second ticket I found with double 7's - maybe they have quite a few out there. It's worth a try here and there.

                            I play BWS because of the chance at a big payout.. last time I checked, there were still 11 $250,000s. It's a long shot, but you never know.

                            I'll try to get the mid 50s on those $2 tickets - haven't been able to yet. Thanks again for the report!

                              #43 on BWS, loser again. Seems to be a popular losing # on the $10 tickets.
