My God this is the week for Gold Rush.  This morning I bought 1 Gold Rush $20 and 1 Billion Blockbuster $20.  Gold rush hit the gold bar $500 and the Blockbuster got $20 back again.  Finally making up for the hundreds lost during the past month.

    Nice, Hopefully I get as lucky today =)

     

     

    btw, a Naples man just claimed $1 Mill winner yesterday on the BBB so there probably wont be a Billion Dollar Bloackbuster Top prize winner for a little bit. But you never know sometimes there could be back-back top prize winners.

     

    Im shooting for the Gold Rush $20, 200 Year for Life ($20) (hasnt been a top prize winner in several weeks), and for the $10 one im aiming for the 200 Mil spectacular. Last winner on the 200 Mill Spectacular was from Tampa a few months ago. There is bound to be another top prizer on that one soon.

     

    Good luck

        I saw that on the FL lottery website B$Rizzle... right in my neck of the woods lol. Gonna try a ticket from Bonita Springs tomorrow. You would think there is a 200 Million  Spectacular top prize in circulation.... it is so overdue. I stay away from that one though... never won a dime on it.

         

        I like your strategy of buying 1 Gold Rush  and 1 Blockbuster Wb. You have better odds of winning your money back/ makin a little change on the Rush and the chance of hitting it big with the Blockbuster. Good Luck on future tickets! Thumbs Up

                    wbrightfl,

                    In California, they state right on the ticket how many are maximum jackpot winners, and also how many are minor amount winners (usually $25.00) Our state being huge, we can't expect to walk in and buy one of those 'biggies' each time. I posted a blurb about retailers scratching their own tickets (or, at least their employees doing so.) in the "Scratcher" thread. You may have a similar situation where you purchase yours.

                        Bought 3 Gold Rush (throughout the day), a Bill Dollar Blockbuster, 200 a year for life. All $20 scratchers

                         

                        Won $100 on last one of the day (1st ticket in roll 000) & lost on the rest. At least I broke even.

                        I think Im going to lay back on the scratchers for a while anmd stick to my fantasy 5 plan and see how that comes up. I think the numbers games are al about being viligant & persistant.

                          Looks like someone just claimed a top prize on Gold Rush $500,000.

                           

                          FL Lottery site showed 4/11 left yesterday and now shows 3/11 remaining. Not sure where it was purchased yet as the site doesn't say.

                           

                          Looks like I'm gonna have to switch my strategy and play a different game for a little bit

                            Yes I just saw that someone claimed a top prize.  Unfortunately it wasn't me. 

                             

                            My week from hell continues today with all losers. Bought 1 Billion Blockbuster and 1 Gold Rush and nothing.

                              Yea I just checked again too and looks like a 51 Year old from Miami got the winner.

                               

                              Hopefully you will have better luck over the weekend.
