Hi James, it's a little late for hoping something written did not offend, but I hope that it did not.

I love to play the instants, there is nothing like the thrill of scratching off a winner...lately that thrill hasn't

been so high but still, a winner is better than a loser.

I play a lot of the instants too, I just haven't purchased books of them - put all that I've played together

and I'm sure it amounts to many books but all at once, no. I was itching to try one but just never took the

plunge..I think my choice would have been 20x the Money, I might have been very disappointed, single

tickets do nothing or nearly nothing.

I just wanted to thank you for taking what I wrote very well. I have a greater respect for you and can

understand and relate to what you wrote. The GA thing I guess is only as good as methods they think

work instead of methods that are proven to work. If I overstepped my boundry and was way out of line,

sorry...I didn't mean to put you on the hotseat. Whatever you decide to do and however you decide to

do it, good luck and best of luck to you!

I saw what you originally wrote and found it to be very kind & insightful. Yes Nod

    Hi Erik - glad to see you are back posting !!

    I tried the new $10 Monopoly game once more. First batch of $400 worth gave me back a measley $120 - bought 24 randoms yesterday and got back $80. Biggest was $20. Arghhhhh

    Did GREAT with GR a few days ago - bought 7 low #'s from the machine. Hit $1,000 and then the next ticket was $500 ! Never had a $1k win on GR before - what surprised me was the next ticket at $500 - tried GR yesterday and out of some 20 tickets I only got two $50's - all the rest were duds !!!! It's amazing how one day gets you super hits and then a dry run. But that's the way it is.

    When I went to Tampa to cash in the $1K there was a guy with a $10K FMC - he told me he never played scratchers before (yeah right) I don't think most people will tell you the truth.

    Good Luck to you Erik - I tried figuring out how to beat the scratchers and had my best luck with low #'s - 10 or so a pop.

      Ew..I must really just stay away from the 20x the Money tickets. I'm not sure where the bigger prizes are

      but obviously..not in MY area.

      Today:

      3 - 20x the Money tickets - #044 - $0.00, #045 - $0.00, #046 - $10.00

      1 - Lucky Cherry Slots - #004 - $0.00

      2 - Mother's Day lol! - #005 - $0.00, #006 - $5.00

      5 - Whole Lotta Hundreds - #038 - FREE, #039 - $4.00, #040 - $0.00, #041 - $0.00, #042 - $4.00

      2 - Diamonds and 7's - #016 - $10.00, #017 - $10.00 (I should have bought the next one after 2 $10's,

      I've already back to back winners followed by higher prizes...and of course too, followed by nothing)

          I know.. all those prizes on 20x the Money are so tempting, but ever since my $40 on #007, it's been 0x the Money constantly. Only one $5 winner since the $40.

          Diamonds & 7s has been so lousy for me that I'd stop after breaking even, but maybe those tickets are better where you are.

          I'm trying Giant today (not Wawa!) - getting 1 Diamond Millionaire and a couple $5 tickets. That will be all for today unless I win big.

            True story, happened last evening and I am STILL dealing with it.

            Bought Qty: 3   20x the money  (numbers: 022, 023, 024) Yielded a 25$ hit on 022, and a $5 hit on 024. This is where the story gets interesting...I bought them at a machine at Hollywood Casino.  Today I go to cash them in at my local bookshop and the guy there tells me, yup they are winners *BUT* you can't redeem them here. I ask why? He says, The packet has yet to be validated!!! I was like what the hey!!! He told me to drive back there and tell them. I'm like , thats an hours drive and I dont have the time! He gets on the phone to the PA lottery retailers hot line to "inquire" if they can pull his terminal records, They network in and see that a ticket was attempted for cash pay yet they have no records of that packet being initialized! So they tell him to  get my "ID" . I'm like no freeking way! You are insinuating that I stole a packet and am now trying to redeem them???? Granted one doesnt get a receipt from playing instants but dang I aint a crook... So I call on my cell the casino and after much runaround I get the correct department. They are confused as to how a mishap like this could happen but agree to go check the machine for any of those ticket series. 20 minutes later the guy gets back on the phone with me and the bookshop dude and explain that they "must" have loaded the machine without scanning the packet for initial report. He would get it taken care of, then hung up. The bookshop guy was like, nice story lady but I am required to get your ID "just in case" this packet is not legit. Currently you cannot redeem them.  So let this be a lesson, even if your ticket "appears" to have all the markings of a winner, the retailer can still be doofus and forget to scan the tab seal. I am out the 30 bucks til this is resolved. How can good fortune turn into such a bad incident?

              Wow. Thats a crappy story. More interesting is I was debating a trip to Hollywood tomorrow and would have gotten the 20X, since I like the odds remaining(though they never seem to hit).. Hopefully Hollywood gets it taken care of and you can cash them. Are the tickets still in your possession I hope? Did you have to turn over your ID? I am an hour away from there too and no way would I have driven back up. Glad you got the right person on the phone and hopefully they resolve it tonight.

                Funny thing is this is the very place where I won the 1K instant winner! Can you imagine getting the 1k and above, go to claim it and find out some staff member never initialized it? The instants are tapped out on weekends but if you stop by the Rodeo Gift shop they can break open a new pack and restock :) Just tell them to scan the sealed tab first LOL!!

                No it still hasnt been resolved but thank you for the sentiments.  No I didnt turn over my ID, the place knows me so if they know whats good for them they will be a wee bit more realistic that things like this do happen , and i am proof of that...

                  Well I spent $30 and got back $2... I wasnt going to play today until I saw Diamond and 7 was on the last ticket while getting gas.Wouldnt have had to go in if the gift card worked at the pump.  I lost on that, Pure Gold(020), Goldbar(005) and Mustang(008). Hit $2 on All That Glitters(042). I don't know why I keep going back. Just thinking . I dont think I won yet on a Mustang

                    Same here. The tickets aren't very good, but I think my luck must be bad lately, too. Not sure how to get out of it. Maybe try one ticket?

                            Same thing happened to me once- I went back to the place and the manager wasn't in.. And the worker didn't know how to do it...

                            So I went to my local stop and they called the lottery and by that time the place where I purchased the tickets had them validated..

                            It was a little scarey for a few minutes- I won like $40 on one and $10 on another..

                            Hope you get them redeemed soon !

                              Same thing happened to me once- I went back to the place and the manager wasn't in.. And the worker didn't know how to do it...

                              So I went to my local stop and they called the lottery and by that time the place where I purchased the tickets had them validated..

                              It was a little scarey for a few minutes- I won like $40 on one and $10 on another..

                              Hope you get them redeemed soon !

                              I hope so, too! I'm not surprised the PA Lottery didn't try to resolve it to GameGrl's satisfaction. When they took off those letter codes, their intentions were revealed. Things have just gotten worse. I am taking a break tomorrow. No tickets at all. It's obvious the ticket hawks have run rampant lately, and combined with not so good tickets, I've been hardly winning anything.
