I've noticed that the places where I get my tix start selling from the high end and go to 000, but I've found the lower numbers are usually luckier.

Anybody else?

    In Tn, it just depends on which end they load the roll from.

     

    Sometimes i see they go high to low, other times i see low to high.

     

    I lose on them all just the same :/

      Nino, Ive won a top prize on Ticket # 003 before and also won $1,000 on ticket #027 so It just all depends. Could be either way

        I went to the store tonight hoping to get 4 $5 tickets from two separate games. Two and two. The clerk handed me two of the first one I wanted, and the other two from a game I had no interest in playing. I thought about giving them back and getting what I really wanted, but then I remembered I never return mistake tickets from online games, so I should probably hold on to them.

        Three of the four struck out, but one of the mistake tix had $20. I guess now I'll take that $20 and get what I really wanted all along, lol.

          if your in miami i would play the 5 dollar tickets out of a machine, miami store clerks like to take the first 10 tickets off each roll and i just dont trust people at gas stations, it seems like the tikets they recomend always lose untill someone that either works their or is there everyday wins, i like a machine at a high volume winndixie  where i get my tix from, ive tried a new strategy of grabbing the first ticket of each 5$ type ex. dolphins, monopoly, cruise for cash and 250 club, they always have at least 2 rolls of each on hand and are putting new rolls in daily; no big winning yet for me but people there have. but if you consider leaving everyday with 10 or 20 bux more then u started with i guess its a steady profit

            It appears the lottery form of gambling bait and switch is common among all wagering venues. Our local casino has tightened up the slot machines to the point where they don't pay more than a 'cherry' in 20 to 25 plays. When the place first opened, the machines were always hitting jackpots, and they left the floor layout unchanged. Now, they move everything around, they've gotten rid of my favorite quarter machines (replacing them with nickel machines, the biggest rip-offs you'll ever see) and the ones that are left are moved around willy-nilly almost every week. I think there is a correlation here: Those who want to hook people on gambling let them win some nice jackpots at first, but after we're hooked on the 'dream', they crank down the odds and rake in the dough.
