Snapped a 6 ticket losing streak on the $20 tickets tonight. Got the "$$" and won $25 on the Blockbuster. I think I will stick with this game... go big or go home right? LOL

 

The big prizes are out there. I think they are spacing the time out between releases of the big winners out to the public though.

    I took a few days off and then back to the store today.  I bought 2 Billion Blockbuster $20, 2 Gold Rush $20 and 1 Monopoly $20.  I won $100 on one of the Billion Blockbusters all others losers.  I broke even which is the best day in a long time buying the $20 scratchers.

        A little better today.  Bought 2 Monopoly $20 and 2 Gold Rush $20.  A $50 win on one of the Gold Rush all others losers.  Still lost $$ in the end though.

          Today bought 2 Monopoly $20, 2 Billion Blockbuster $20 and 2 Gold Rush $20.  Both Monopoly losers, both Blockbuster losers.  Gold Rush won $50 on 1 ticket and $40 on the other ticket. 

           

          I think I will stop buying the Monopoly as I am not getting anything worthwhile, if anything at all from it.  Blockbuster fair but Gold Rush has been pretty good lately.

            Today I bought 1 Gold Rush and 1 Billion Blockbuster.  Both losers.  I hit my loss limit for this week so no more until next week.

              With scratchers I'm convinced the winners are strategically placed in areas where there aren't many online game winners. In Florida that means everything north of Miami.

              My game is Blockbuster, but I won't buy it unless I'm on the road. I bought 2 in Stuart last weekend. One was a stinker and the other won $100.

Good, bad or otherwise. You'll maybe get lost in it, tied up in it a little bit, but if you work your way through that the real you shows up, I think. Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace

                Bought 1 $20 Blockbuster and won $100 for the first time on the game, ticket number was #036.

                 

                Party

                 

                 

                I have a good feeling about tomorrows ticket and powerball. Good luck all!

                    GOOD WINS TOO wbright!! That's excellent when 2 tickets hit back to back and they weren't bad wins at all...a $50 and $40 is great!!

                    Maybe the Gold Rush are the way to go.

                    Good luck on your next tickets!!

                      Since the Florida Lottery is obviously holding back the larger winning amounts I am going to reduce my loss limits the next few weeks.  Can't keep losing each week when playing the scratchers with the best odds.

                       

                      Starting off this week same as last week.  I bought 1 Gold Rush $20 and 1 Billion Blockbuster $20.  Both losers.

                        Finally a good day for scratchers.  I bought 1 Gold Rush $20 and 1 Billion Blockbuster $20. Won $50 with the Gold Rush and $20 back on the Blockbuster.  Net $30 for the day.

                              Good Luck to Wb and all my fellow scratchers!
