$1 tickets ive had 12 duds in a row. I don't even bother with these anymore.

$5 tickets I lost about 8 straight once followed by a $50 win. That felt good !

$20 tickets have had 6 duds in a row twice and the follow up each time has been $25

        I can relate -- The TN Millionare's Club got me about a year ago -- but not THAT bad. I lost about 7 in a row on that one, and overall still lost about $180 (with other rolls factored in).

        Yours is also frustrating because sounds like #29 is the last of the roll -- you would think the last or 2nd to the last ticket would have been some kind of winner.

        On a side note, I just realized Florida's rolls must be twice the size of Tennessee's...ours only go to #014 ($300 a pack). I thought all states were this way but apparantly they arent!

              Don't the $20 tickets go to #49 in FL, James? Still, that's horrible. If that happened to me, I'd be on the phone with the Lottery office - LOL.

                  Tell them you'll cut back purchasing because of it. I think that kind of complaint would have most impact.

                    I would but I don't see them saying "were sorry that you had 11 losers in a row, we would be happy to give you a full refund"

                    Cause If I don't buy them then some one else would, you know. Best thing to do is just warn other about this game.

                      But that doesn't mean others would pick up the slack of you playing less. I know it's just one person, but the Lottery wouldn't like hearing it.

                        Good thread. First off, I know I buy WAY too many $10.00 and $20.00 tickets each day. I have to travel for work and anytime I stop for fuel or coffee I try one or two or three or if I'm trying to catch up as many as five or six. I've already had six $10.00 and five $20.00 losers in a row. Probably should call the 800 number. BTW, they were the LAST five and six in a pack.

                         

                        The  $10.00 Christmas tickets "Winner Green" were pretty good for about 3 weeks. From mid Nov. thru the first week in Dec.  I couldn't buy 3 in a row without hitting at least a $20.00 winner.  I had seven $100.00 winners. Five on the bonus block with santa's pic in it, one with the 5X $20.00 green symbol on it, and one that had five $20.00 matches on it. On Dec. 6th I bought the second to last ticket(usually stayed away from these) and it had the green christmas tree "win all the prizes" symbol on it that added up to $400.00. I lost count of how many $20.00 winners I had. Also a few $40.00 winners mixed in.

                         

                          One of the local places I stop had two rows of these tickets in the rack and one in the self serve machine. I bought two from one pack, two from the other pack ( one at a time) and one from the machine. The second ticket in both shelf tickets was a $100.00 winner and the one out of the machine was a $100.00 winner. There's three in one day. Heck 3 in 10 minutes. After the first week in Dec. they went DEAD. You could still hit the $10.00 amount and get your money back but that was about it.

                         

                         I switched over to the new $20.00 "Million Dollar Mega Multiplier" and the new  $10.00 "Diamonds and Sevens" tickets. Here is where it gets a little weird. I know they probably use some sort of RANDOM system for picking the numbers on the tickets. I don't mean winning numbers, I mean just the numbers they use.  Well I have saved some of the losing tickets and somebody will have to tell me WHY, out of the 20 "Mega Multipliers" and the 12 "Diamonds and Sevens" losing tickets I have, the NUMBER 24 IS ON SIXTEEN TICKETS!  Looks to me to be around 75% of these LOSERS had the number 24 somewhere in the field. It's like the kiss of death. LOL

                        It got to the point that if I saw a number 24 in the field I knew it was a loser. Just an observation. They rest of you people that play these tickets should keep score on the number of times you see that #24 in the field.

                         

                        Good Luck All, AJ100

                          Thanks for the tip, AJ! I'll watch out for that number. Interesting about Winner Green. I won $100 once on the thing, and it was later in the game. I got the end of the roll so many times with no luck.

                            I find the beginning of the pack on FMC $20 tickets is the worst part of the roll. Several times Ive seen only 1 winner in the first 10 tickets.

                            2014 Highest Winner: $500

                              I used to think so as well, but its all random. I've won nicely at the beginning(including 000) and in the middle, but always lose for sure in the end of any scrather roll.
