Welcome Rocky !! Did you send James the entry fee yet  LOL........ just kidding.  Sounds like your $20 tix is a good one. Does your state have a lower tier grid ? Fl does not. Anyway, I buy my tix kinda like you do -- 5 - 10  from different bins at my four fav places ....... I have no system other than trying to buy tix where I've had most wins with a feel of winning ........ usually the middle #'s - now it's lo lo #s. I don't buy rolls - never had good luck with them. How many tix in a roll Rocky ?  Odds? This may sound weird - but I mostly buy when I feel there's a win waiting for me ............ sometimes I'll buy at 7AM ............. once I got up around 2AM ...... had a feel to buy $200MS - went to the all night gas station bought 10 tix I think and got two 10X50 Stars. I try to buy when I get the feel and visualize a win. Sound hoaky ?? Maybe ....... James can give you more insight about patterns etc......... tonight I had the burn to go out and buy a few more GRT after the two wins ...... yeah I know ...... but I felt a $500 win was around the corner.......and it was ... 'nuf said ....

wins: $10,000 Jubilee - $5,000 $200MS - 31 $1k's - 185 $500's - 5 $400's

    Haha, I am guessing the entry fee is 5 unscratched GRTs? Yes, our 20 is pretty decent. The thing I hate is chances of getting a $100/200 is  1 in 30, which is pretty similar to your state. However the overall odds of getting a $500 on a $20 scratch off is 1 in 2000. Where as for your GRT, it is just 1 in 196, 10 times better. n MA,  $10 and $20 rolls have 100 tickets in them. $5 rolls have 200 tix.So you could easily tell that buying a 100 tix roll is a losing strategy, since chances of hitting a nugget :) I mean $500 is 1 in 2000.  My most wins come from $100 and ocassional $200.

    I play 40th anniversary millions and 10K a week for life. If I hit a jackpot, I will move to FL so I could hit 500s more often. I am doing 3 or 4 $100s a day. You actually gave me a good suggestion, to stick to winning places..I  keep trying my luck at 2 stores by my home when I am lazy to drive far but lose all my gains there, 'chasing' losing tickets. I agree with you, I buy when I feel lucky and had quite some sucess. Our state lottery closes at 9, thats the time I get greedy and lose all my gains between 8:30pm and 9pm just to increase my wins.

    Congrats on your 2 10x50 stars and your today's 3 $500 nuggets. I'd have better luck finding nuggets in the hills than winning a $500 in MA. 


    I actually read several posts from you and James several hours last night and wanted to speak with both of you  - so joined. I'd love to share and listen to our daily results.

      Awesome, that is uncanny.  I managed to hit 500 on the 25 dollar ticket today, a single 100 with a double 200.  also hit one a couple of days ago, $20 under every number I have a bad pic of it, but i will post it later.  Didnt photo the one today, cashed it on the spot as I was on the way to work.

      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

          Thanks and welcome.  Im on here hit and miss, mostly complaining about the horrible tickets I buy.  I have a bad habit of "chasing" the win, even when its not there.  Best of luck to you in your scratching.

            Wow, it's awesome to see people hitting 500's! I've still to hit my first $500, but hopefully I will soon. I'm starting to adopt the 1 ticket a day strategy, I tend to chase too much and it gets me into trouble Leaving. Bought 1 BDB today ticket #018-DUD. Hopefully my luck will pick up.

              i never have much luck with block buster, but i bought 4 today got 3 winners out of the mix a 20, 25 and a 30, pretty unheard for me to get 3 bbs in a row.

                    Way to go Skeptic...nice hits..

                    Yesterday was my birthday so I got about $100 worth of tickets from people in cards...and yep you guessed it...NOTHING...good old PA Lottery..

                    I felt so bad..not just for me..LOL..but for the friends and family that bought them and put them in my cards..they were of course hoping I would win something nice..

                    Some were the new Christmas ones..and didn't win a thing..the $10 and $5 ones..

                    It is getting to the point where everyone is going to just not buy them to put in cards anymore..they said why waste their money on the tickets anymore they would have just rather given me the money or gift cards..I have to agree..

                    You are only going to hurt yourselves...PA Lottery...

                    Good going all that are winning...

                    Dr65...hear you birthday is coming up...Happy Birthday..and hope you have better luck on yours...

                        Congrats dr65! I am staring my scratching spree now guys..This morning one for one of the scratch off  barcode seemed to was peeled off and stuck to the next ticket. The ticket won a free ticket but I guessed I couldnt cash it ..Asked the clerk..She gave a new one and it won $50, which I wouldnt have bought from the store if the first one was not damaged.

                          I won $500 on Diamond Millionaire in Boston. Overall I hit less times and for less money than I do in Florida, but you guys have the best jackpots. I tried a roll about a year ago, $20 game. Cost $2K got back around $1,100 or so. was not happy about that........

                              Yes, we lose more than we win in MA except for the jackpot prizes. I've read the stories of $1M-10M jackpot winners, most of them only buy a ticket once in a blue moon and win, as ppl like me take out all the losers.

                              The Diamond Millionaire we get these days is watered down, bought hundreds of them at stores without just 1 $100..I am guessing they put all the good prizes in the beginning and so here we are now.

                               

                              Today I bought 15 $20 scratchoff $10K a week for life, lost on 11, with maximum hit of 40.
