    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.

    Perhaps we are all doing this wrong. Lets look at 20 million scratch-off queen Joan , she only buys tickets from one lotto store. And I saw a story the other day where a woman won 1 million from a 5 dollar scratcher then won another 1 million from the same$5.00 scratcher at the same freaken' store.

      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.

      I don't know about FMC, but with BDB it depends. some retailers can only handle small packs but some few retailers have super rolls and go beyond the 49. i've seen tickets # 078 in BDB.

          The Texas lottery website has the number of winning tickets printed and claimed for each prize level as well as the total number of tickets and the number of tickets in a pack and a minimum dollar value for prizes in a pack.   It's relatively easy from those numbers to see that the majority of the packs simply have a few token small value prizes enough to make the minimum level and only a few packs have any significant prizes.   You can pretty much see the dividing line in the prize levels.    The question is of course, are the hot packs printed in a separate run from the cold packs and then mixed in mechanically?    If so it would be reasonable to assume that due to how the packs are mechanically shuffled and the delivery routes rarely changed, certain stores would be more likely to receive the hot packs.   This may have been the case in the past but with modern inkjet and laser printers, this is not necessarily the case, the prizes could be distributed by a random number generator while printing in which case there would be no discernible pattern to their distribution.   So how are these tickets printed.... I would love to have a tour of the printing facilities.

            What? The BDB Rolls are $1,000 making the tickets 000-049...I have never seen a 078 ticket on BDB before! ...if you see this again please take a pic, I havent seen them go that high, ever. Interesting.

             

            I did not know "super rolls" existed.

              Yes, very rare super rolls. Haven't seen any in Miami but Fort Lauderdale yes. Most retailers aren't set up for a super roll and don't carry 'em. If I'm up there again and have a spare $20.00 I'll show it to ya.

                Actually, when I saw the super roll I got discouraged. I was like "no way!" Toooo many tickets!!!!!

                  I would never buy a $2,000 roll. You would need a $1,000 and a couple of $500 winners just to break even. The odds are strongly against that.

                    Recently tied my longest streak of ten. This time happened on Pot O' Gold #076-085. Both bad streaks have come on bad $2 games IMO.

                              Wow^^

                               

                              can't say I've ever lost 8 in a row on $10 or $20 tickets....there must have been something big before those losers. Most I can recall losing was like 8 $5 NY Black series tickets and the 9th was a $10 winner.
