    Won $100 3 times already. I will continue to play it even though ive encountered 3 different sets of 5 or more duds in a row. 

    1 in 546,000 odds of winning $1MM = best of any scratcher

      I'll betcha that those 5 duds were the new tickets

        Well went to Winn Dixie tonight and hit up the machine. Had kind of a bad day and wanted to splurge on scratchers. Long story short I won $100 for the 4th time ( 3rd this week ) on BDB but LOST a total of $300 after I left the store. Florida Millionaire's Club destroyed me Unhappy

          That's pretty bad, sorry to hear that. Once in a blue moon, there's a "hot" roll out there with consecutive 100,200,500 and 1000 prizes. Looks like you found a regular roll. I haven't played Millionaire's club yet, I was hoping to win Mega Money or Fantasy 5 last night with my $1.00 strategy, but nothing.

            Actually , I thought that someone would win BDB immediately after Christmas, scratch-off sales soared and retailers were selling entire books

              >LuisM, I thought the same and still think there should be some winners coming around on alot of these 20.00 tickets in FL>

              Doesn't make sense, the new game comes out "Millionaire" and hits 2 and we haven't had a big winner that I know of on the other 20.00 tickets.

              Hopefully, I'd like to see someone from LP hit one and post here all about it.

                I feel that that the odds posted aren't accurate, just about every retailer has BDB. That wasn't the case when the game originally debuted

                  Ive hit $100 5 times with BDB now. I have a feeling if I were to win a decent amount it would come from this game. I also noticed this game can hit large amounts anywhere in the roll not just the beginning or end.

                  Im going to quit playing Gold Rush after the fruitless search of trying to hit the Gold Bar. Ive wasted too much money and even $500 wont recover much anything anymore. I might also quit FMC as that game eats your cash faster than anything else. 

                  My second option is to fall back on Lucky for Life or Monopoly if BDB spits out anything under $100 in the first few tickets.

                  2014 Highest Winner: $500

                    Update

                    Played through at least 200 tickets in last few months. Won $100 8 times, $50 around 10 and about 40 or so smaller prizes.

                    BDB can go on long losing streaks but ive always had a $100 winner follow. Overall odds for me 1 in 3.5

                    2014 Highest Winner: $500

                      There's another winner. 86 prizes remain. It's the weekend. So no info on the win until next week

                        It is frustrating to me when they dont post info about a big winner.

                        Tennessee recently had another winner with TN Millionaire' Club ($20 scratcher) as the top prizes went from 3 to 2, but they have made not mention of it. Maybe the person hasnt come forward yet but even when a 500,000 ticket was sold there was never any info about it and TWO different gas stations I go to (same owners maybe? Its the same name, Kwik Sak) they both have it displayed with a photocopy.

                        But James1 I agree, stick with the one with the best odds and if you are hitting 1:3.5, that's not too bad.

                            At least it wasn't the same Publix. If it were that's be nuts

                              Still this is beyond crazy. 

                              Port Charlotte is very small town not that many places to scratch compared to South Florida where there could be 20 retailers in 1 city block. Amazing how many winners the west coast has between Naples and Tampa.

                              2014 Highest Winner: $500
