    I think Florida is holding back larger winners which should be illegal but how can it be verified?

      2/10 $15 on the Buccs tickets...not even close to half of my money back. The "covering the odds" strategy isn't working for me so I'm gonna try buying 2 $10 tickets instead. What would be better? buying 2 tickets from the same game(same roll) or 2 tickets from two different games?

        I have won on all 4 tickets in a row from the same roll and then again I bought 4 in a row off a roll and lost all of them.  It is so random there is no way to tell.

        Last night results.  Bought 1 Monopoly $20, 1 Blockbuster $20, 1 Gold Rush $20 and 1 Lucky for Life 100,000 $10.  Monopoly won $25 back all others losers.  Net loss for the day $45

        I gave up on the football $5 scratchers almost all losers, no where near making the odds they claim exist.

          Yea the "second chance" games are bad news imo. The $10 lucky for life game at least had some decent winners in there when it was first released. The Monopoly seems to be your lucky game!

          Good luck tonight!!

            Stopped by a different Publix to buy some tickets today. After a bad week I thought I would buy a few extra tonight and as always only buying tickets with the best odds (according to the FLA Lottery site).

            I bought 2 Gold Rush $20, 2 Monopoly $20 and 2 Billion Blockbuster $20.

            Both Gold Rush losers.  1 Monopoly won $20, the other loser.  1 Billion Blockbuster won $40, the other loser.  Net loss of $60

            The trend of not winning any decent amounts continues.

                  I took Sunday off from buying scratchers after the dreadful week I had playing last week.

                   

                  Might buy 3 tickets tonight and see what happens.

                    1/4 won $5 on 250,000 Monopoly 2 days ago and lost on a $20 Monopoly yesterday. I'll try the $20 Monopoly again tonight...if I lose, will take a little break.

                      This week begins in the hole.

                      Bought 1 Gold Rush $20, 1 Monopoly $20 and 1 Billion Blockbuster $20.  Won $20 back on the Gold Rush, the others were losers.

                        Today I bought 2 Monopoly $20 scratchers.  $20 win on one and nothing on the second.  I am taking the rest of this week off.  Too many losers circulating right now.

                          wbright I sure hope u have a better week playing those scratchoffs! I certainly know how frustrating that is...I've played $200 million spectacular, 100k for life, gold rush, lotteria and most I've won is $15 twice. WORST of all I bought SIX $3 crosswords for my comrades and we ALL lost. If it weren't for the$15 winners I would think I was still in TN!

                          Anyone know what is with the "*" stipulation at the end of the title of these games, where it says "prizes subject to availability at time of purchase"?

                          Does that mean the flottery may not be able to pay out right away if a large jackpot  hits ?

                            I agree the $20 are tight this year. That is all I buy and the $30 when they had that. Last year I won 500 numerous times on gold rush, this year can't hit more than 100.00 on blockbuster, monopoly and can't even come close to a winner on gold rush. However, when I went to the lottery office yesterday to buy my tickets (in Fort Myers) there was a woman cashing in a 20,000.00 winner on Blockbuster. so they are out there but I must be on a major losing streak!

                              I am convenced they are holding back a lot of the bigger winning tickets.  2 of my co-workers also plays the scratchers and having a bad year, compared to last year.
