Started getting shaky when I saw the win all symbol. Still I'll take 100 bucks.

    I don't know what the trick is in PA but I do know that for the past few months it's exactly what omiller

    described. The wins on just $5's used to be so much better. It wasn't impossible to do well on $5

    tickets...$20's, $50's and $100's were almost common...now that common has been replaced with

    $0's and $5's.

    20x the Money tickets give $5 wins all the time...it's hard to find anything better than that. $5 Big Money

    tickets are no better. And these are the ones that were supposed to have been restocked with winners

    because of their popularity. I've seen many people happy with a free ticket or a dollar or a $5 win on a

    $5 ticket. If you look at in terms of strictly 'live to play another day/game' then ok, I guess that's alright.

    But what about the claims of xx top prizes, win up to 12 times and xxxx prizes of xxxx or the claim of:

    over $xxx million in prizes!! ???? Isn't anyone looking for those? I am and have to be honest and say,

    while it's good to win $100 and better to win $500, I'm wondering where those BIGGER prizes are. I've

    been playing for years also and the most I've won on one ticket is $5,000 on the instant games.

    There were tons of $100's, $200's and enough $400's, $500's and $1,000's so I can't complain but I'd

    like to find a real good one more often.

    Take the poster skeptic for example....btw, don't know where he went but anyway...there were so many

    tickets posted of wins of $500 and $1,000 it was incredible. Now is that area or volume? I don't know.

    Like James said...something to the effect of: winning good ones are nice but where are the big ones?

    That's why we all play, to win. And the more you can win the better time you have doing it. I don't think

    there will be a day I ever quit, it's fun for me. I guess what seriously has to be weighed is whether you're

    having fun doing it or if it's just time to quit for good. If you're just feeding money into the pot and not

    winning and don't feel good about playing maybe another game - a lesser ticket amount - would justify

    playing. If you play $20 and constantly lose, maybe $2's are better. Maybe daily number games are

    better...for $20 you get a lot more chances of winning something than with 1 $20 ticket.

    You have to make the decision to be in or out and consider if totally quitting is the best option. Maybe

    your area will never be good...who knows? Maybe your luck will never change or maybe it will take the

    next 10 years for it to happen. I think if you don't have a good reason to play...(and just playing for a

    top prize isn't good enough reason...it really ISN'T) then your chances might be better somewhere else.

    Like Megamillions or Daily's or Pick 4's or Casino's or Bingo.

    DR. You got it exactly right. I wouldnt play if I couldnt afford to lose the money. I would never gamble away car payments or rent or medical bill payments. It is the fun factor. I have more fun at the casinos. I think lottery tickets are enticing cause from home to work I can probably pick 30 stores to buy from. The casino isn't as convenient.  I hit $3300 on a nickel slot progressive in 2009(2nd pull), so i guess PA has been semi nice to me. It just the tickets that in my eyes lost their fun and probably cause of not hitting as much. I agree though. i want to see a life altering prize. $500/$1000/3300 or even the $5000 is nice, but it isnt like anyone will retire or buy a new house or car from it.Totally agree also about areas. My area could never produce anything bigger than X amount. Maybe Erie or Pittsburgh is the hot spots and those are 5+ hours away. I figured for me is a no brainer from now on. Casino = more fun and better chances to win. Mentioned before the PA lottery is right place at the right time. Casino you are already in the right place, just a matter of hitting a button at the right time...

    Ps: I apologize for getting off topic of winners.. Congrats to the winners of late. That does stink for a $600 winner you need to visit a claim office. I woukld certainly mail it since 7 hours of total drive and taking off work and then taxes it would barely seem like a win..

          This is the difference between FL and PA. Your losing streak was two in a row.

            In PA you can buy 9 or 10 $20 tickets in a row and not get a hit.

            I did terrible today, I am thinking of quitting lotto.   I had to buy 6 $20 Silver & Gold Riches tickets to win back $30.  So I continued playing and after 12 total ($240) ended up receiving $100 back ($30,$50,$20).  I tried a different $20 ticket and had to play 3 to win back $20.  I think for the day I'm down like $210.  I seriously question the accuracy of the odds when it has not been unusual for me to have to play 5 $20 tickets to get a winner.  I rememeber when it was not that unusual to hit like $20-$30 off a $1 ticket or $50 off a $2 ticket.  Now it seems MUCH more difficult like they have cut back on the prizes.  I seriously think I am going to try to stop playing or at least not play $20 tickets anymore and just get like at most $15 worth of different tickets and just leave the store after that and not continue playing.

              In my experince, it is never good to buy more than two of the same tickets in one location.

              For example: I have $20 and would buy the same two $5 tickets at one location and then hold onto the rest of the money. If the tickets were winners, then I would use them to buy more tickets. If they were losers, I would go somewhere else and get a couple of different tickets. I would spread my luck to different places and see if I win anything. I dont buy more two of the same ticket at one place, it would be dissappointing to see many losing tickets after you bought so many.

                Hello fellow scratch-a-holics. I have not won anything post-worthy for a few months but I did find a decent ticket today. After reading on the Mass website that there were still lots of "Harley Fat Boy" motorcycles left in this 3 year old ticket I thought I would try to find one. I do not ride but the bike is worth $30,000 so I figured I would win it and sell it. I had previously won a Harley Gear Pack on this $5 ticket. So I stop at my lucky store on the way home from work and purchased two. Ticket #68 had a single hit on it for $50. The very next ticket, #"69" had two winning spots. No Fat Boy but both spots revealed $500 for a $1000 winner. I'll take it!

                Congrats to all the recent winners. I hope to see one of us scratch that life-changing ticket soon....

                    Those were from different bins

                    Ive seen 9-10 losers in a row on the $20s plenty of times here. In fact ive seen almost 20 straight losers (thankfully I was not the buyer !)

                        Thanx Mr Sinful and James. Here in Taxachusetts they will take the 5% state tax off the top so I will get a check for $950. My biggest winner was $5000 and I got a check for $4750. If it had been $5001 they would have taken state and federal taxes right away.

                            Last three sctratch offs.

                            $5 Diamond Crossword ticket 029- loser (guess this one isn't going to give me any nice wins like the previous $5 Crossword did)
                            $5 50,000 Jackpot ticket 023- loser (the lottery machine broke down after I made my selection on this one. Had to wait for the manager to come and fix it. and he didn't even know what was wrong and had to call someone else. Should have just asked for my $5 back and left. wasn't even worth the time and effort.
                            $10 100,000 Jackpot ticket 021-loser (Why do I bother with the $10 ticx? At least I didn't buy the $10 Money Mania again. If any AZ people are out there do not be fooled by their amount of winners...this is a garbage ticket. bought at least $200 worth of this ticket ever since it first came out and only won maybe 3 times. just money back or $20. I know you gotta take some losses to get the big winners but come now.)

                            Should have just waited for the Wenesday PB like I said I would- won $12. Got the number 14 PB and had gotten the powerplay...
                            AZ has already had 3 or 4  $1 million winners. I'd love to be another one. :) No more sctrach offs for real... Got another ticket for Sat drawing. Have fingers crossed...good luck everyone

                              These are older games just recently purchased. I asked the cleark which $5 had recent winnngs. Whatever it is I stay away from it and get the ones with low popularity. Total win from these two is $55.
