I had a crazy Eagles ticket today...a goal post and a TD symbol on one ticket!

I rubbed off the numbers first and saw the GP symbol and thought yay! a symbol then continued on to rub off a TD symbol (I was thinking

misprint....I don't remember getting 2 symbols on one ticket - EVER)

Anyway the ticket was worth $100 and the ticket number was #020

Each of the symbols were $10 so 10 x 3 + 10 x 7 = $100. I expected $5 each symbol for $50 so that was an okay ticket for $100 tonight.

    Good job getting $100 again, dr65! How many tickets of the same game do you usually have to buy to get a big winner?

    You described perfectly what I'm feeling during my losing streak. It made me feel better. I did get a $4 Solid Gold win today on #96 (only one win in 10 tickets), and another $2 win, but the BWS and Diamond Mine lost. The losing tickets were #96 on BWS and #10 on Diamond Mine.

      Thank you, that one was more thrilling just because it had 2 symbols...I'd like to get the ultimate surprise and scratch a winner of $1MILL!

      I saw the new tickets yesterday! Hmmm, I'm not too impressed right now. I bought 5 of the $2 tickets and had a $2 and 2 of the $5 tickets and

      got nothing and one of the $10 ones and zilch...went and bought another $10 and nothing.....wow, if these aren't the teasers I was talking about,

      then I'm passing judgement on them too soon. I'll try some more at other stores.

      I don't buy big runs of anything but the $1 & $2 tickets...those I'll buy at 20 and 10 at a time. The $5, $10 and $20 I'll buy up to 4, 2 and 2 out of

      one machine because I don't like being stuck in a rut where the winner went out right before I started buying them (maybe the next 10 will

      be nothing in that case) I will usually buy one here and one there hoping that's the one that hits. If it doesn't, then I'll try 2 more $5's or one more

      $10 or one more $20. I find the best way is to move around buying one or two (higher priced tickets) out of a machine or display then stop if they

      don't produce. Many times - and this involves sheer luck - I find a winner on the first one I buy. I've already put $60 in a machine with no luck

      at all too. This game is being at the right place at the right time. I've purchased a lot of losers too (that would be: wrong place, wrong time lol)

      $100 isn't too big a deal but I get happy to find one because it kind of restores the faith in those times where all I'm winning is the face amount

      or double the face amount or NOTHING....sometimes you have to wonder, where the heck are the better ones?!?

      Oh and the Solid Gold tickets...yesterday I found a gold bar, ticket #177....and I had a feeling about that one....$1 on each prize line = $5.00 LOL

        Sounds like a good strategy! Do you scratch all your tickets off at the store? I usually take mine home to enjoy, but I'm not sure if that's the best way. I usually only buy a lot from one machine if I'm desperate to get winners. Right now I can't afford that, so I'll have to setttle for a couple of the new games. Sorry you didn't have much luck on the new ones - hope they do better!

          Most times I'll scratch them at the store - but there's a danger to that you have to take into account....win, collect, right next to the machine, put

          some money back into the machine. It could go the other way too, lose, don't collect, put more money into the machine anyway. LOL

          I like to do the game tickets at home...Crossword's, Bingo's, Moneycomb's. I enjoy playing those games.

          I'd like to think that while I'm scratching, I don't look like one fanatical lady I saw - well, actually heard one day at the machine. I was around the

          corner at the counter and she was at the machine...she sounded like a rat trying to get out of a plastic box...and she was doing that all on one

          dollar tickets (small rub area...What?) How on earth she made that much noise scratching, is beyond me. I thought, wow, that lady has problems or is

          in a real big rush.

          I try to scratch my tickets in public in a calm, cool and collected fashion. Approve

          Maybe I should ask to see the surveillance tapes.

            Nice win on the Eagles ticket DR!  The new Money Money Money ticket is one of the best they have come out with for awhile.........the 10 dollar ticket............lots of 100 dollar prizes in the early books.

            Win a big one,

              These new $10 games stink worse than ever! FOUR Money Money Money losers on #3, 4, 14, 15. I don't think it's just me right now - with 1 in 3.49 odds, sure seems like it is the state not being honest.

                  I think I'll buy 4 from one machine tomorrow - but I'll have to take another break if they lose. Been losing way too much lately; used to getting something back at least. I don't think I've ever been in a stretch this bad. I didn't like July's games much, and the new August games have been worse for me.

                    Thank you Keystone! I'll give those a shot this week and early next. I haven't found anything better than the face value yet, but I know you're right

                    and I'll be working on them!

                    Here's hoping you'll find the prize to make you go - Bananalol

                    Hit a good one Keystone!!

                      I didn't care too much for Cash Fever and still don't. I think it's a headache visually and a more difficult game to track...I hate when they're mixing

                      up colors and making red numbers and black numbers, just give me a number to match for crying out loud...stop messing with the colors. It's nice

                      to double on a red but really...try keeping track of first, the set of numbers you're looking to match THEN whether they're red or black. My gosh.

                      Monopoly, the $20 one, is one of my favorites. Just let me see a tophat or hotel, simple.

                      I'm sorry you're not having a lucky streak and hopefully that will be changing very soon. I'd like to think no luck would equal extreme luck eventually

                      but you just have to watch them...if you're on a bad streak, maybe an idea is to buy something you normally would not buy. That works sometimes

                      too....but with that plan, I just buy one of them then quit. I hate Mother's day tickets, King of Cash tickets, the $100,000 $10 tickets...they are super

                      hard to scratch, I DETEST the Gus tickets - he can hit himself in the head with that pick for all I care....and I can't stand Extreme Green but will buy

                      them when it seems the others just haven't been doing much in the last few times I got them. Something breaks the streak, it's just finding out

                      what that is...whether it's mixing up the play or just plain quitting for a day or so. I hope you get a real good one soon!

                        Thanks, dr65 - appreciate the advice! I will change if I don't win on four Money Money Money tickets tomorrow - sometimes I get frustrated and for one day try to buy myself out of it, and then take a break. Just seeing a winner is a pleasure.

                          I just didn't have the money to do the new $10 game today. I tried the $2 Treasure Hunt - #12 won for $2, but the other three lost. Should have just scratched off #12 and walked away, but I needed a winner - lol.

                            I broke my losing streak on the $10 games - won $10 on Money Money Money ticket #000.

                              I just picked up the new Illinois $10 Jackpot Wealth Scratch Off. The ticket number was 042 and I won $50.

                              In Illinois there are a lot of big winners on tickets 000-006 and around the 40's like I just did and around the 80's.
