    Mostly $100 and $500 wins.  A ton of them too.

      The other 2.5 million might be in your area as well.

        I just took the 546 pools of 120,000 tickets = 65,520,000.  I just guessing that pools are essentially lots of tickets.  They are listed for every game in the emergency rules, its is on the header of where it tells you how many winners of each denomination there are.  I didnt see James' post on the blockbuster, I have played it before, its not uncommon to get 7 or 8 duds in a row followed by a 25 dollar winner.   For Spectular the initial print was 30 million tickets.  There may actually be more than that for both games as those were the initial prints when the games opened.  I cant believe 200MS is still going with that many winners.

        Yes, pools are groupings of sets of ticket books.

        There is an easier way of calculating how many total tickets were printed for a game. As long as you know the number of a certain prize and the odds of that certain prize winning, you can calculate the number of tickets printed:

        (# of a particular prize in a game) * (the odds of that particular prize winning)

        For example (we will use the top prize since most lottery websites, like Florida's, give the number of top prizes):

        For Florida Billion Dollar Blockbuster there are 10 top prizes of  $10,000,000 with odds of 1-in-6,552,000 for the $10,000,000 top prize, so:
        10 * 6,552,000 = 65,520,000 total tickets

        For Florida Millionaire there are 3 top prizes of $5,000,000 with odds of 1-in-5,040,000 for the $5,000,000 top prize, so:
        3 * 5,040,000 = 15,120,000 total tickets

        For Florida $200 Million Spectacular there are 20 top prizes of $1,000,000 with odds of 1-in-1,500,000 for the $1,000,000 top prize, so:
        20 * 1,500,000 = 30,000,000 total tickets

        If reorders are made for a game, total prizes increase, so total tickets increase in the exact same proportion.

          That is funny! I have the opposite results on 50x! I have never gotten more than $30. GA Black I have gotten at least 3 $100 wins. I just can't get that $500. The other $20 game I hate is Millionaire jumbo bucks! A ton of losers and no 2nd chance drawing! I have only hit on one out of about 6-8 tickets for $30. I won a little tonight but gave too much back..

          I hate the $20 millionare jumbo bucks too, last time i played that game started a roll in 000, played one at a time, just to get a f** free ticket in 005 thats just horrible its not right. After that i said no more, the $10 and $20 jumbo tickets are the worst tickets you can get for those prices. Dont play any of those they have the worst odds.

            I had a pretty good day yesterday....

            found a Sizzlin 777 for $500...ticket #006....a bold 7 plus 3 flames. Thought I was getting $5 in the prize area, was

            happy to see it was $50 in each area...the BOLD 7 multiplies the prize 7x.

            then got 2 - $200's. One from the older Cash Extravaganza ticket..20 matches at a measly $10 each spot = $200

            ticket #024 and a $200 one spot match on the new $20 ticket Platinum Millions ticket #000.

            Tried a couple Instant Millions from 2 different bins....002 won nothing. #020 won $20 - I have a feeling I should

            have tried the next one...021 but oh well.

            GOOD LUCK TODAY EVERYONE!!

                I wonder if they would let that happen!

                  I have had a couple $50 wins on the $10 Jumbo Jumbo Bucks but the $20 game is a ripoff!  The crazy thing is it has the best odds of winning the bigger prizes.  Compare the top prize to any other game.

                      Had a little luck this morning but I just don't know when to quit!  I hit $50 on a $20 Lucky Fortunes ticket and $75 on a 20x the money.  Got a 20x symbol for $3 and 3 matches for $5 each.  I hit on a few others but nothing over $25.  Then played some various other games and lost.  Ended up leaving with $60 though when I left the house with $15.  So I still made a little.  I just can't get that $200 or $500 win!  If I hit that or above I will definitely take a break for awhile.

                        For everyone that seems to be buying an overwhelming amount of duds I urge to to have the clerk check your tickets regardless whether you think their winners or not. Over the past week I've claimed about $100 on what I thought were losing tickets!!!!! We spend so much on $10 and $20 tickets checking them is the least they can do for us.

                            I played some $20 tickets today and did pretty awful.  They had a new ticket called Money Multiplier.  I bought 14-23 and this was the sequence.

                             

                            14-loser

                            15-loser

                            16-loser-

                            17-loser

                            18-loser

                            19-$20

                            20-lost

                            21-lost

                            22-$25

                            23-$20

                             

                            out a quick $135.  Then I tried a different $20 ticket and played 2x and won $20.  I'm not playing for a while, the $20 tickets are brutal.

                              Well my blessings continued!  I took your advice GA Falcon and bigboy and picked up a 50x.  Bought one ticket #024 and got this beauty....50X

                              Biggest win to date!!!  I actually bought a few more tickets even though I said I wouldn't and get this, I got $100 on the Millionaire Jumbo Bucks ticket #001.  I couldn't believe it!  I picked up a Lucky Fortunes as well and got $40 though I bought two tickets to get it so I just broke even.  Picked up another Millionaire Jumbo and got a free ticket.  I am holding on to that to take to another store this evening.  Man it has been a great day!  Makes up for all those crappy ones I have had lately.
