That sounds like the streak I've had with Money Money Money ($10) here in PA - 12 tickets, 1 $10 winner. Even #23 lost, which can be a good number.

    I give up on the Florida Lottery scratchers for a while.  They are simply ripping off the players right now. This morning at Publix I bought 1 Billion Blockbuster, 1 Gold Rush and 1 Monopoly.  Again all losers.  For the week I lost $240 all from buying $20 scratchers with the best odds.  Not 1 ticket even brought even all week. I will wait until I start hearing of people actually winning something before I begin again.


    Good luck everyone

            Maybe you guys should consider (if you're going to buy 2 or 3 $20 tickets at a time) buying the same tickets... from the same roll...  Odds would be a lot better.  you would increase your odds of winning... say $100 from 1:30 (sample only) to 1:10.  Just something to consider.

            How are you going to win if you don't play?

              Well I took a week off and thought I would buy some tickets and see what happens.

              I bought 10 of the new $5 Cruise for Cash scratcher.  This scratcher is advertised as the best odds of any $5 scratcher on the Florida Lottery website.  Out of the 10 I bought, I won $5 back on 2 and all the rest were losers.  Some good odds huh?  Lost $40.  I guess they are holding back the good winning tickets to pay for the second chance drawing for the cruises.

              Beware of this scratcher folks.

                Man, I though the same thing. Bought about 20 of these suckers and won$20 on 1 of them!!! wth...

                 

                 

                I kept saying "ill give them one more chance"...and bought another on my lunch break. <snip> loser again.

                I think Im over this game for a while. At least I have several tickets to enter for a cruise

                 

                 

                btw wbright: did you see the FL Lottery site where the chick from jacksonville won the $20 million grand prize from the $30 Million High Roller scrtatcher? Pretty cool, its in my hometown

                    i was at my local winndixie yesterday buying tickets as normal seeing if anyone had hit big since i was last there, you know the normal box with the 15 or so rolls of tickets, and the instant vending machine, so within 15 minutes i watched an old lady buy 3 bbb and lost withing 5 min she then went back and got three 20 monopoly lost and bought 5 cruise for cash lost all 5 and bought 4 10$bonanzas lost them all so shes down like 165. theres 1 bbb left on the roll an i figured that the odds where in my favor for the rolls she just bought from so i raked up 55 bux to grab one of each tickets she just bought; on the cruise 10$, monopoly 0, bbb 0,bonanza 0. so im like wth is this about and as im walking out someone goes to cash a $500 cruise for cash that she got from the machine, so i decide to stick around and realize she was a clerk that worked there and she said that the machines pay better because the lotto is trieing to promote them with more winners; and this was not the first time she had one off the same machine either ; so i guess im gonna switch my stratedgy and only buy form that machine untill i hit something above 100; after that it seems like the odds on those 20 dollar tickets is way off im sticking with the 5$ tickets

                      Florida Lottery still sucking with the scratchers.

                      Bought 3 Gold Rush $20 scratchers today at Publix.  All 3 losers.
