One question before I log off:

I have lost on the last 8 $5 Harley Davidson tries. Would you quit that game now, or try for one more win on it? I had a 10 or 11 loss streak before, but before this new loss streak, had the $50 and $20.

Omiller had an 0 for 23 on Black Tie, so I know how long it can go.

    I think mine was because I only got 1 at a time. Come to think of it, I think I only ever played 1 Harley ticket and it lost :)

      I haven't gotten a lot at a time, but boy can they add up. The odds are 1 in 4.52 on the ticket , and last I saw, they still have the wrong odds on the PA Lottery site.

      Have a good night!

        I'm not too fond of tickets with prizes. 1.odds don't seem to favor the player because of paying the rights to that brand. 2.paying taxes on the ratail amount on that prize.( I have to come up with that cash somewhow). My experience tells me that chasing the next $5 ticket probably would be disapointing. Good Luck.

          From now on I am going to play like the high roller guy. Open a fresh pack and have the owner keep it aside and play it little by little. really the only way to control the losses. If I play elsewhere I could chase a winner that happened before me and be fighting a losing battle. I know the big spender usually buys 7-8 to start and then decides what to do. Curious if anyone thinks that illegal? I know if someone hits a $1k or more, he will settle the pack and send it back instead of putting it out for others to get the remaining losers.

          Good winning over here WTG EVERYONE!!

          omiller, you said Curious if anyone thinks that's illegal? You mean having the pack set aside for the big spender to play by himself?

          I found your statement - if someone hits $1k or more, he will settle the pack and send it back instead of putting it out for others to get

          the remaining losers - intriguing.

          You mean the owner is removing the pack from play and returning it to PA lottery? This I find VERY interesting.

          246 ~~ 485 ~~ 369 ~~ 890 ~~ 705 ~~ 357 ~~ 129 ~~ 165 ~  007 ~ 225 ~ 818 ~ 440 ~  7775 5557

            Yes. When I worked at the grocery store, we could settle half packs and return them. I know when the guy hit $10K he did that cause he didn't feel right about selling the rest of the pack to someone betting on mostly losers. Basically by setting the pack aside the guy is buying a full roll without spending the money up front(and someone jumping in on his tickets). If he puts the pack out for sale, he makes sure everyone knows someone hit $1k and lets them decide if they think it is a hot roll or avoid it. Basically a retailer with a conscious.

              We are making assumptions that a pack is dead when a $1k ticket was bought. Or this a fact? No one knows for sure, right? We are just making educated guesses because the odds would be against the pack containing another big winner. Unless you have access to past jackpot winners, where, which pack, how much, what #,etc... I'm hoping that its truly random.

                Decided to pick up 10 Jubilees while getting gas at my fav Sunoco station - Picked up a nice win - it reminded me a little bit how I felt scratching off that $10K a week ago !!! There was a $200 in the ten as well !! The last ticket I had was 29 - so I got the last 10 before the end of the roll - wonder what the first ones were like ? Some people write in here thinking if you get a $1K in a roll the rest is garbage - I can't tell you how many times I got two $500's or $1K and a $500 in the same roll - James was telling me when he went to the DO to cash in a his ticket - a guy won $10K and Two $500's I think from the same $200MS roll - if I remember right.

                    WOW, they must have sent all the winners down your way, Ive gone through about 600 dollars worth tickets here, and nothing to speak of a 20 or 30 here and there, not even a hundred.  Im gonna see if I can make myself sideline it for a while..keep up your hits

                    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

                      Absolutely. Ive had rolls with $500 + $200 or several $200s and 5-6 $100s. several members here have snagged several $1k or higher from the same roll. I would of bought the rest of that roll Ed if it was there im sure you would of as well. might be (seems to be) different in PA though.

                      Congrats on your winner. I cant believe all the hits you are having. id love to play in your area. im jealous lol

                        By the way Ive gone thru tons of Jubilees and have not hit more than $200 yet. it sucks in my area.

                          James,

                          I have done the same, bought lots and lots of them, I have gotten 4 500s and a 1k out of them, but I have more than paid for those prizes.  I havent even gotten a 200 winner, I just keep trying.

                          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

                            Im going to keep that in mind, if I hit a good ticket, I normally stop playing the roll.

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

                              Good point about the PA part James. I was going to ask if someone would buy a few from the $1k roll, but it does seem like PA might be different. I know the roll I hit $1k on. I lost on the 5 previous, but won $1100ish on the next 5 and then I think I got the last 10 and paid back 140. That excludes the 1st 10 from the roll that I have no clue about. I guess all in all it is gambling and suppose to be random, so I guess in theory there could be back to back $1k. Maybe us PA people havent bought enough to know for sure. Doesn't seem like many get rolls and when I get them, I never had a big enough win. The last pack had a $100 and $250. Best of my roll experience. I wonder if he can still get Casino Cash. He had a $10K and $2500 hanging up and it was my $1K ticket. Maybe I will see if he can get some more. :)
