Well after some luck last week with the 100X tickets going to different locations, decided to try the GRT this past Wednesday because everybody seems to do well on those, and for $500 seem to have the best odds.
First place his was Publix. First ticket #010 was a loser, but the next one #011 out of the Vending Machine hit for $100. (+60)
That's when I should have stopped. But decided to cross the street to the Kangaroo Valero. 2 Straight Losers, and then a $20 even winner. This was on (#10-#12). Decided to leave still up +$20.
Cross the Street and went to Shell. This is where things got really bad. Started with #002. Every ticket from #002-008 was a loser! (-120)
Ticket #009 was for $40. I had such bad luck on this role that I violated my own rule and went ahead and bought the next 2 tickets, thinking there might be a big winner in them. Both #010 and #011 were losers. (-140)
This made me pretty mad and I was like, screw it, so I got $200 out of the ATM and bought the next 10 (#012-#021). Wouldn't you know it that 5 of those 10 were actual winners, including #14 ($20), #16 ($30), #18 ($20) , #20 ($100), and #21 ($20), however I still ended up losing another $10 (-150)
(I also learned to despise the Stack of Coins image, realizing that 99% of the time it would be $5.00 paired with 1 matching number worth $5.00 for the bare minimum.
So with no luck on that, played 1 FF ticket (#023) and is was a loser (-170)
So I go back to Publix. Choose the other pile of GRT from the vending maching. #023 was a $20 winner. Trade it in for a GRT behind the counter. This time a $30 Winner.
Again, try and get a FF from behind the Counter. Forget ticket # but it was another $20 Winner. I guess tempting fate, I try one more and it's a loser. So I end up (-180) and disgusted.
Yesterday on the way home from a meeting, stopped at a Kangaroo on Williston next to Subway. First Ticket #024 was a loser, bought one more and it was a $50 winner, so decided to leave +$10 and try and catch the other amount some other day.
Not as much luck as last week, but that string of 7 straight losers was a killer. That's the most I've come across on high dollar value tickets. For $1 scratch offs, the most consecutive losers I've seen are 13 and as few as 1 winner in 25 Tickets (that 1 winner happened to be a $40).
Thinking about going out tonight. Which game should I play? 100X? $3M Monop? GRT?
