i used to prefer numbers 0-4 on Gold Rush but have seen a few rolls that didnt have a winner till ticket number 008 and it was only a money back winner, so word to the wise--dont play based on the numbers. there really isnt any strategy to it. all the numbers are winners. i have won on GRT on every number from 000 to 029 with the square. 005 seems to be the least winning number for me.

I feel ya. #005 hasn't payed out for me either. But over this past weekend I went to my favorite corner store to play a couple GRT's and a lady had just won $500 on ticket #5 minutes before my arrival. So I bought some $20 Monoploy's and Flamingo's instead and <snip> near lost them all. After that I decided to quit while I was down lol

    My mom won $4 on PB (3) from Saturday's drawing and had some small $2 Scratch-off winners to turn in I went with her and we went over to the Chevron on the corner of Williston & I-75. This has been a pretty decent place for good winners. Same guy at the counter everytime and I always seem to come out ahead.

    Anyways, she bought 5 $1 Scratch offs between $1 Monopoly and Bankroll. All were duds.

    I had spent $80 last week and only gotten $40 back, then used that same $40 to play this past Saturday and got $45 back. When I went to turn that it, I just got 2 of the Gridirons because I didn't feel like playing a lot. 1 was a dud and the other was just a $2 return winner. 

    I took the remaining $43 today and bought 1 each of 5X, 10X 20X, 50X, and 100X which came out to $43. If they were all duds, I was going to quit. The 5X, 20X, and 50X were all duds. The 10X paid $4.  Wasn't looking good when I got to the 100X, but thankfully #027 was four $25 matches for $100. So made $61 today. 

    This location I noticed has more rolls going on at the same time than any place I know. He has like 4 rolls of all the $20/$25 games. Usually all I see are 2 at the most. But this is the 3rd time I come out with $100 from his location. 

     

    Not sure if I'm going to play GRT or the others for awhile, seems all the good prizes are drained for the moment. No idea when FF will drop another big one, but the BP Station on Archer/SW 62nd advertised that they sold a winner for $20K.

    The $20 Monopoly though has me puzzled. Nobody has won a jackpot amount since August with 5 of 6 still remaining, while 3 $500,000 prizes have been given away, the most recent in November (the Remaining prizes says 6 of 8, but the Report shows 3 prizes claimed. That means 83% of Jackpot Prize remaining and 62% of 2nd prize, it would seem to make sense that another Jackpot prize would be given away to bring the prizes in proportion. Part of me thinks this $3 Million winner is sitting in some obscure store/location that sees virtually zero lottery traffic and has been there since December. Perhaps it's sitting on the back of the roll in some mom/pop store that gets 1 customer a day?  6 months seems like a long time especially when they tend to reorder the game. What do you guys think?

      I agree with ya in regards to the $20 Monopoly and GRT's. There are a few stores around here in St. Pete that barely sells the higher priced tickets due to the considerable amount of loosing tickets and low prize wins. I have tried a few and came out with nearly nothing. Even the store clerks said it has been very slow on sales for the past few months regarding the $20 games and $25 dollar games. I wouldn't be surpried if a major prize is just was waiting in there patiently. But then again I wouldn't be surprised if there's not! You just never know. But i'll keep trying.

        Looks like another GRT $500,000 was purchased sometime yesterday, but no details yet on who or where.

         

        Starke$, you bring up a good question I was thinking about. Does anyone know what the average shelf life is of a roll of Instant Tickets? I'm sure the answer'  different based on the cost, so  my question is more for the $20 and up tckets like Monopoly, FF, GRT, and 100X. . It seems according to the FL Lottery website advice for retailers that they should be calling Scientific Games and ordering at least a week's worth of supply, but does that mean the shelf life is a week? 

        What about the isolated locations away from main traffic arteries and people like us who buy frequently? Is it feasible that a $20-$25 game roll could sit on a store shelf for weeks, maybe months, with little movement?

          *Florida Lottery Press Release:

          FLORIDA LOTTERY SETS NEW RECORD FOR WEEKLY SCRATCH-OFF SALES

          TALLAHASSEE - The weather is great in Florida and the sun isn't the only thing shining, Florida Lottery sales are increasing right along with the temperature. The Florida Lottery announced today that sales of Scratch-Off tickets exceeded $78.5 million last week, an all-time record. The newest record breaks the previous sales mark by $4.5 million, reached the first week of March 2012. Florida Lottery's Scratch-Off sales have also surpassed the New York Lottery, the highest-selling U.S. lottery, the past four consecutive weeks.

          "Twenty-one Florida Lottery games had sales of more than $1 million last week," said Florida Lottery Secretary Cynthia O'Connell. "This is good news across the board because higher sales result in more winners, increased commissions for retailers and more revenue generated for Florida's students and schools."

          The Florida Lottery newest $25 Scratch-Off game, 100X THE CASH, led the Scratch-Off game sales, exceeding $15 million in sales last week. The $20 GOLD RUSH TRIPLER Scratch-Off game followed closely behind with more than $9.5 million in sales.

          Terminal game sales are also contributing to the Lottery's bottom line, as both multi-state jackpot games continue to roll over, creating hundred-million-dollar jackpots. The Lottery has been averaging more than $100 million in total sales every week for the past seven weeks.

          Last Thursday I went to the distric office because I won the Play 4. While I was waiting I witnessed 10-12 people who all won on scratch-offs. I was the only person there for a terminal game win.

            Win$500Quick, congrats on your Play 4 win!!!!

            Thanks for posting this. $78.5 million in sales in one week. Does it say how much they paid out? Ticks me off when I think about Billion Dollar Blockbuster with hundreds of millions left in prize money, and they pull it. Yet, they make $78 million in a week.

              Thanks OldSchoolHits for the congrats. I have been to the district office several times and there is always a mix of winners. But I actually saw each one these people go to the window with a scratch-off. Also they had 4 banners on the wall for the winning tickets that were bought there and all 4 was scratch-off wins. So when I saw the press release it all made sense. People are spending tons of money on scratch-offs. Even at Publix you will see people buying scratch-offs from the counter and the machines.

              P.S. They did not mention winners or payouts. I agree with you about the BDB tickets being pulled with top prizes still available.

                So I bought a few more 10x the Cash Tickets and took another good winner for a $1 ticket. So this week I have won $10, $30, $40 and $100 on these tickets...Going to buy a few more in just a bit, see if my luck continues.

                  They are getting ready to do the same thing with Casino Action, 2 grand prize tickets left, but you cant find tickets anywhere now.  My mom and pop stores have always had them, then lottery pulls them when ticktes are old enough that some one is bound to win, they hold the tickets and end the game.  its all part of their con.  Where are the millionaire tickets at?

                  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

                    So you'r saying that after winning over 7k in just over 3 months you realized is not worth playing anymore??? I dont know if laugh about your post or what..

                    I can say after 18 years I only have 1-$1K and maybe 10-500's. If it is more than 10, it isn't by much. That means my 216 months to your 3.5. I would say you are doing pretty <snip> good with those results. Like Matt mentioned. I am way back. I still play, but no more $100/$200 days. Kinda sad I got the last 2 $30 tickets in a roll and 2-$2 tickets. The $2 tickets hit $10 and the $30's hit 0. I have gotten the last $30 in a roll 2 others times and they lost. Guess we can only hope the next batch is decent for a few days

                      Best winner i've ever gotten

                      Yall's tickets are awesome! This was the best ticket from a group of 10 I bought a while ago. That same night at a different station bought another 10 and won another $49 ticket. Haven't had that amount of luck since...

                        Looks like another GRT $500,000 was purchased sometime yesterday, but no details yet on who or where.

                        What about the isolated locations away from main traffic arteries and people like us who buy frequently? Is it feasible that a $20-$25 game roll could sit on a store shelf for weeks, maybe months, with little movement?

                        Well, I know for sure the new Multiplier tickets don't even last a week in the machines. Especially the $10 50X The Cash ones, as well as the $5 20X The Cash. There gone within 3-4 days around here in the machines that is. The rolls sold over the counter at convenient  stores and gas stations are usually gone within a week a two. But it has been a little crappy for me lately. Which is understandable considering i'm not tossin $100's for them like I was before when I wa on a good winning streak. The higher priced tickets, mainly Gold Rush Tripler and 100X are selling fast, while the $20 Monopoly's and $20-$25 Flamingo's are sitting around forever it seems. I notice the trash cans are filled with losers and lately i've been adding to the pile. I've been playing the $20 monopoly lately and hardly come across a $100 winner. I'm about to change my locations or take a break. Definitely easier said than done!

                          Those of you who predicted a $5 million winner had to be in circulation for 100X the cash were right! $5 million dollar winner claimed today. A guy from Florida City, way down in Homestead.

                            Interesting. Now I don't know what game to play. The likelihood of releasing another $5M prize this year in 100X is slim given they will probably want to milk the game out for at least another 12-15 months before reordering it. And Gold Rush is starting to get thin on $3M prizes. No telling on when FF will release another. Almost seems likely that $20 Monopoly $3M winner has got to be coming soon.

                            We took a trip to Cedar Key today to take some pics. Stopped at the only 3 lottery vendors in the 20+ mile radius. The first, a Chevron Island Jiffy sold a $3M FF back in January, something I completely forgot about. But surprisingly, they were completely out of $20-$25 tickets and none were expected in soon. Strange.

                            We visited the Market at Cedar Key where I picked up 1 100X Ticket #024 which was an even money winner $25. They displayed the tickets oddly hanging down from the shelf in visible view of the customer, something I don't normally see in gas stations or Publix (usually hidden or locked up).

                            The other place was another Jiffy Store next to the Post Office. They were out of GRT but were the only ones that had $20 Monopoly. I didn't have a good feeling so I passed.  I thought the area would be more isolated than it was, but I guess they do sell a good deal of lottery business.

                             

                            As for remote locations, I have looked at the map of Florida and have pinpointed to be what I believe is the most isolated lottery location in the entire state. Eventually, I'd like to take a trip there and try some rolls, but I'm still in the middle of changing jobs at the moment and can't afford to spend what I want so I'm throwing it out there to others that might be interested. Perhaps some of the mysteriously missing old and unclaimed top prizes might be at this location. 

                            Kenansville Country Store (Citgo), Kenansville, FL - It sits on the corner of US441 and Osceola County Road 523 (S Canoe Creek Rd) in Southern Osceola County and is a virtual ghost town with nothing around for 20 miles in either direction. This stretch of 441 is infrequently traveled because the faster Turnpike bypasses it completely to where the only people using the road are either locals, cheapskates trying to avoid Turnpike Tolls or people headed out to lakes/ranches like Lake Marian. I can speak to being a cheapskate about tolls because I used to use this stretch of highway when I traveled from Orlando to WPB coming back from military duty and I can attest that if one thinks they are going to make better or the same time on 441, FHP is there to greet you. 

                            The population of the town is 740, mostly older persons, of whom less than 500 are over 18. Just about all traffic from Orlando/Kissimmee to Okeechobee City and vice-versa will use the faster Turnpike and get on/off at Yeehaw Junction. This makes the stretch of US441 traffic between SR 60 and US 192 in Holopaw very thin. Even truckers who decide to avoid the Turnpike, if they need services, will stop instead at the larger and truck accomodating Pilot Travel Center at the Turnpike/Yeehaw Interchange, approximately 16 miles south. Additionally, traffic around Yeehaw has greatly declined because discount tickets for the attractions are no longer sold there. I could be wrong, but I think in terms of scratch-offs, Kenansville would be one of the least most visited areas in the state. 

                            Sure, there are others that could be it as well since FL has a lot of small towns. But many times those small towns are still on major arteries that people still frequently travel. A lot of panhandle towns could probably also qualify, but I suspect a good number of border lottery retailers (Bama) do better. Kenansville has been completely bypassed. There's no other businesses (the supposed Heartbreak Hotel has closed down). Other places I thought might be isolated and have slower business would be Cedar Key (in and out only via SR 24) and the BP on St George Island, but I still think they do more.

                              Those of you who predicted a $5 million winner had to be in circulation for 100X the cash were right! $5 million dollar winner claimed today. A guy from Florida City, way down in Homestead.

                              wow, to win that on an instant....awesome. Imagine scratching that prize off.
