Geez, I made more money on the $2 tickets. I spent my $31 in accumulated winnings and added $9 and went to the beer store again:

All Power 7s lost (#022-#025) - terrible lack of randomization. I have now had 1 winner in about 12 tickets in the 20s.

Got #019 and #020 Stacks of Cash - #020 won a grand total of $10! Yipee!

I think I'm going back to a mix of new and old tickets. Not spending as much tomorrow.

    "In Pennsylvania, more people are purchasing lottery tickets than ever, as Lottery officials announced that sales for the year were $3.2 billion, up $142.2 million from last fiscal year and $118.7 million higher than the previous all-time record set in four years ago.". Thats alot of money. I wonder what the payouts were and where all the money goes. 

    Iowa had 270 million. Thats a HUGE difference. Seems PA is getting greedy and pocketing more money with lesser returns . Iowa returned $160 million.  Thats roughly 60% return. Wonder about PA..Hmmm

    I know this is results page, so i will end with saying I lost on one of the new $5 tickets.

      I bought 4 $5 IL Wheel of Fortune scratchoff games in a row today, with only one being a $5 winner. At least I get to send these in for the second chance drawing. That's the real reason I am buying these...

            I guess I can't make heads or tails out of it. Is it bad luck, wrong timing, trying too hard..how can 1 person who hardly ever plays win $1000 twice(hubby)..and look at the latest winner on the lottery website..she hardly ever plays and won the $1000 a week for life..I'm  happy for her, and I'm so happy that my husband won too..but why can't we...do we want it too much..

            I know I'm sounding like a sore loser here..but I just think how many tickets I have done, and you Matt, and everyone else on here..and NO big winners..

            Maybe it doesn't pay to buy many tickets..or whole rolls..I guess it really does come down to the right place at the right time..and the right ticket..doesn't matter if you spend $5, $2 or $2000....if the ticket isn't in that batch then it isn't in that batch...or in our area..

            I'm not looking to get rich off the lottery, but I'm also not looking to make the lottery rich..which is what I feel I'm doing...

            This will be my philosophy for awhile. I plan to maybe play $10/$20(not all weeks) a week and figure if I am meant to hit, then I am meant to hit. I hate complaining also cause I dont want to come off that way, it just gets discouraging to lose so much. Thats why I think if I limit my play, I won't feel like a constant loser.lol

            I did get one of the new $10, $5, 2-10X and 1-Gold Class. The 10X's hit $2 a piece and Gold Class hit $1. I didnt play the $10 or $5 yet. I took that $5 over and got the same thing. The 3rd 10X hit $4(4 matches) and that was it. Tickets were 37-38-39. I will take the $4 and other tickets home with me.

            I do want to apologize for possibly coming off harsh. I am truly the most easy going person alive, I guess I just kept my PA Lottery frustrations built up entirely too long. I def like this site and the people and will keep visiting. I will post here and also help out the Excel people in the other forum needing VBA programming. I will post my other tickets tonight..

                Hi Omiller, You aren't coming off as being harsh..you are just stating the truth here about the lottery.

                Maybe we should start a new thread..a place to scream and hollar and get our frustrations out about the lottery...LOL..

                I too am usually a very positive easy going person..but the one thing that does get under my skin are these scratch off's..Yes, NO one is making me do them..I used to do them just for fun..and I've got to get back to that mind set..just for fun...

                I guess what frustrates me is HOW many I have done (as is the rest of you) and haven't won anything over $500..some haven't won anything over $100 or $200...

                That is what I think is pathetic..that is what shows me that the odds are off somewhere..

                Some of us play daily...not just every now and then..and how can you buy tickets every single day and not win anything over $200-$500...we can't all be that unlucky or having an off day..

                I still say that something is different and the only one making the $$$$$ is the lottery...do they get audited?

                Good luck on your tickets today..Nothing here to post about....

                  Power 7's(014) hit for $40(6 matches). Stacks of Cash(000) lost. I should have scratched them at work. I would have went back to get the next 4 of the new roll of Stacks for Cash. The guy told me last time this game was out, someone at that store hit $10,000 on ticket 006. Maybe the store next to my work is lucky. I am sure ticket 001 is $200K since I bought the one before it :)

                   

                  Allowself.. I mentioned before I hit $500 once in 1997 and nothing over $100 since. I didnt exactly play $5 a week during that time either.  I think I have to be like your hubby. One ticket a week :)

                    You're funny James ! Took it easy today. I bought two FMC's - $100 and zero. Bought two GR's - $100 the other zero. Bought 6 $200MS - got one $50 and two $20's. Bought one $5 monopoly and got $20. Bought at random from the machine. $145 out - $310 in. Not bad.

                      That's a decent hit for a change on that game. I tried $20 today, and this time the lack of randomization worked in my favor. At Giant I got Power 7s #031-033. #031 won $5, and #033 won $14. 2 10x and 1 Gold Class lost. If Power 7s didn't have strange prize amounts, I would have gotten all $20 back.

                        Thanks. I just have to tell myself the next one or driving 20 minutes back to work, doesn't mean it will be a good hit. That is my problem. Kinda like impulse buying. I get in the mindset of the next one is it and have to rush back to get it. I just have to take it easy and play the $40 around here or treat myself to a nice dinner.

                          Good Going..Omiller and Matt..Good to hear someone is winning..

                          My husband insists that because I play tickets everyday..and not winning that I'm giving off a bad vibe...and I'm getting back what I'm giving out...a bad vibe and losing tickets...

                          Funny because I've heard that with the law of attraction..and he doesn't even know any of that stuff or if he did he wouldn't believe in it....so maybe he is right.. 

                          NOW the Million dollar question..HOW do I get myself to only play once a week..I think it has become a habit now..to buy tickets everyday..is that what they call a habit or a gambler..LOL..

                          Anyhow, being frustrated everyday isn't good for me, or us...so now I have to get myself in the mindset to pick a day and only play on that day..

                          What to do on the other days????????LOL

                            You could always get gag tickets, but then again they are more expensive than real tickets.lol Maybe a smartphone app for scratching tickets:) I went to school for computer programming, want me to throw one together for you? lol I don't know Android or IPphone programming, but I know PC programming..Come to think of it, that would highly be possible.

                            Maybe you can play a small amount each day and save them til the end of the week to scratch. That way you know you won't chase winners and it will feel like you have alot of tickets to play.

                            I did run back to work,.lol I got tickets 24-27, but didnt play yet. They dont have them on display which is odd,. he was going to open them wednesday for me, but I said not too and he still didnt open them until today when I asked about then. He still sold 23 tickets in about 6 hours. He has alot of open bins, so I am not sure why he never put them in.. hmm..

                              Ticket 026 yielded $10. I figured with 4 in a row, I would only see one winner. I was banking on alittle more than that. Yeah wel, I still have $10 to get a win with this weeks allottment.
