Matt, I'm not sorry to read what you just wrote. In fact it may be the best choice you can make. The acceptance of not being able to win every

time one plays is a good realization in both decisions: to continue playing or quit playing altogether.

The scratch off's are a super money making tool for the state lottery, they use them well. Promises of instant millions or prizes big enough to

be life changing are a draw for a lot of people and the catchphrase: 'It can happen to anyone' is an excellent one to pound into people's heads

and they pound it in deep too.

I respect and admire your ongoing evaluation of whether or not it is sensible to play anymore at all.

You are right. When you don't win and it is no fun playing, it might be time to stop giving them money because there has to be enjoyment

in any activity, especially when money is involved. If the thrill isn't met just by playing, winning enough to be satisfied or having a good time

it might never be met waiting for a big win either. Chances are, it won't come.

Whatever you decide to do Matt, good luck!  Big Smile

Hi, dr! I will still check the PMs because I still want to remain in touch with you, omiller, and whoever else wants to PM. Thanks for understanding. Even if I just won sometimes like the first couple years I played, I wouldn't complain. The odds are against the players. But I am finding nothing at all, so I had to make this decision. They changed the tickets around when they took off the sight codes. Take care and I still hope to keep in touch.

    James, is that a $20 ticket? That's what they do on our $20 Winner Take All...I don't understand how winning $30 on a $20 is good for anyone but

    the lottery. More mind games. Breaking it down to 6 times x 5 is a smack in the face.

    Good job on the $100 winnner and I hope some big ones cycle through your area and you're there to snag them. Good luck!

    Yeah $20 ticket I got a bad taste in my mouth after seeing all those $5s. Ive never come across this combo before and thought 6 matches might be something worthwile maybe a grand but $30 is just sad....

    2014 Highest Winner: $500

      I wish everyone good luck. As I said, I may not be back. That is just because I want nothing to do with PA scratch offs anymore. I don't expect to win every time. But when you always lose, something is really wrong with the tickets and you have to stop.

      I feel the same way Matt, Florida aint any better either. Seems we have more $100s but you have to BUY them here. $100 winner cost $200 bucks LOL

      Its no fun when you hardly EVER hit 1st ticket out. I should of hit a $5K or $10K by now but you can just forget about those.....

      2014 Highest Winner: $500

          James, I got the same ticket about a week ago. Six matches for a $30 win....I had the same reaction----are you kidding me?!!!  Remember the Old Gold Rush when you matched every spot but some of the wins were $2.00?  I used to hate that. Six matches for $5 each is crap. Same with the two coin stacks for a $30 total.

Other than that  about 25 or 30 winners of anywhere from a $1.00 to $30.00... Like I said not a whole lot going on in Illinois since I hit that $100.00

            Biggest lottery wins for 2013 $100 1 Time.......

              CRAZY LUCK !! Was taking to the lottery man at Publix this morning - he told me that a young guy who was waiting for his girlfriend to come out of work went to the 7-11 across the street for a slurpee and for some reason bought one $5 Heat Wave ticket. He won $5,000 !! Told the clerk it was the first and only ticket he ever bought !!!

              Second odd thing ! I'm still at Publix now walking over to buy a few from the machine. This guy is standing there looking at the machine and it says there is a one dollar credit in the small window at the top........ someone must have been careless and left the buck in there he said to me --------so he punches a one dollar ticket and wins $200 !!!!

                OMG! $2 matches...HS that's lowdown dirty.

                They test out new lows all the time....I'm surprised they didn't try a FREE ticket on a $20 yet here in PA.

                  Haven't really played very much lately...Gave it a run for about a year and half...didn't find the big and by the looks of everyone else.....well my new strategy is to play every two weeks or so and see what happens....

                  Like today, picked up 3 heat waves out of a Publix ITVM (#25-0, #26-$20 and #27-$5)..

                  Went to another Publix and cashed in and picked up 2 heat waves out of machine (#54-$20, #55-$25). 

                  Funny thing...when I scratched all the heat waves, I started with all the winning #s first and saw all like #s  but both #26 and #54 were 10 #s at $2 each..  I hate that crap!!!

                  Decided to stop at a Hess and get 2 heat waves (#5-0, #6-0) and 1 BDB (#36-0) <snip>!!! Went back in to buy 2 more heat waves (#7-0, #8-0) S@#t!!! 

                  Made 1 more stop at a mini-mart, picked up 2 heat waves (#28-0, #29-0)  Had to go back in to buy 2 more heat waves (#30-0, #31-0).

                  Well...I'll have to wait for next time

                  james...I have scratched GRT and seen 6 #s come up at $5 each...That sucks!!

                  Good Luck to all....

                    I should point out that the $2 matches only occurred on a hundred dollar winning ticket. You would match every spot, and some would be worth $10, some $5, and some $2. I never saw the combination for anything less than, or more than, a hundred. BUT.....it still sucked. When you match every spot, you're thinking you've got a $500 at least.

                          Jubliee has to be the worst game I have ever played, I think they shipped all the filler tickets to Jacksonville, its absolutely horrible.  I know the house always wins but I am beginning to question the validity of that game.  I guess I should start playing the 5 dollar tickets, atleast the lower prize games are paying out, just not in Jax.

                          biggest hit 10k, Jubilee, 5K Miami Heat, 2K Emerald 8s, 1k jubilee, 1k GRT, 1k heat wave, multiple 500's

                          good luck in the chase 2013 wins, maybe 4 500's

                            There are others in here from Jax/OP (Including me) that feel the same about several of the $20 games. Especially GRT. There is a poster on here that has hit $500 probably at least 20 times. I played that game a hefty amount and won $500 during the first week and that was it.The $20 games here in Jax seem to be terrible lately

                              Early on I had fair luck with GRT, Ive hit 500 about 6 times, but like you I play a hefty amount, too hefty.  I see that they indicate that there are 3/15 500k and 2/5 grand prizes remaining, yet on the rules of the game there will be 10 500k prizes and 4 top prizes.  So evidently they have printed more tickets than the rules indi cate they were going too, I guess its their games may be reordered and prizes may increase porportionally is their catch all statement concerning this, how how is one to know how many tickets were truly printed.  All in all i guess they dont force me to play, but it sure would be nice too know what really goes on at headquarters.

                              biggest hit 10k, Jubilee, 5K Miami Heat, 2K Emerald 8s, 1k jubilee, 1k GRT, 1k heat wave, multiple 500's
