I been buying tickets in spurts, but not scratching. This way I am not tempted to play more and gives me a nice pile to scratch at one time.  This post will look very close to my last posts. I either have horrendous luck or PA really has the worse payouts ever. 

$1 Moola   Lost

$2 Horeshoe.. Lost... $2 Horseshoe Lost.. $2 Valentine $15

$3 Bullseye Lost

$5 Match for Cash   $5. $5 Life(55-59) Lost.. $5 Hot #. (52-59) 1 $50 winner

$10 CWC, Neon, Win Win Win, Gold Rush, Life, Neon, WWW, Gold Rush.. All Lost

$20 Hot Million, Max-O-Million, Diamond Dazzler, Million $$ Match(057-059) -1-$25 winner on 058

$30 Three Million ticket= Lost. 

 

$310 worth of tickets and $90 worth of winners. Totally absurd. I know I said I wasn't going to play big, but this is a joke. PA is a joke. The $50 win was luck and could have easily been $5.. This is the last straw. Totally done with tickets. Medical bills will be here soon and won't be able to play even if I wanted to.

It's the tickets. Always are bad here and get even worse right before new tickets. Had loss after loss lately on Max a Million and CWC - weren't that way before. Oh well, if you don't play anymore hope you update us on your health - hoping for the best.

      Played on Thursday.

       

      I bought two of the $3 Bingo Plus tickets, first was a dud and the second was a $10 winner.

       

      I then bought a $10 Crazy Wild Cash and lost. Took my Mega Millions and Power Ball ticket and left.

       

       

      This past Saturday a friend bought a $20 Max-a-million and hit $25, went back and got another (5 #'s apart) and hit $1000.

       

      A guy at work just told me a person bought a ticket at a grocery store in a town about five min away and hit $300,000 over the weekend.

       

      That makes two $300,000 winnners right in my back yard in the last 3 months.

       

       

      I personally am all but done playing, I'll try the new tickets each time they come out and thats it. I'll play match 6 when it gets up over a million

      and the occasional power ball / mega million tickets.

       

       

      On a side note and IIRC my mother (who has prepared taxes professionally for the last 15 years) told me that in order to be able to use losing tickets

      like that as tax deductions, you need to be able to itemize your losses? I can ask again, but the gist of it was is that you needed to have a LOT of losses

      before you could itemize and unless you could itemize it then it wouldn't count?

        Thanks. Looks like a 3rd year with spinal issues. Hopefully it won't be surgical this time... 

        I did try 1 each of the new tickets. $31 got $40 on the $20 ticket. Paid him my $31 and lost the $9. I left my ATM card at home, but of course he lets me buy them on honor system there...lol

        The new $1 ticket is confusing,. Your #'s are actually in the O's of Hot Spot. I could see people missing that and thinking they lost if they don't see a symbol

        $2 ticket is match 3 symbols per row

        $3 is different with symbols and trying to get them horizonal/vertical.Symbols look alot alike, so i am glad after you scratch it also had the words. 

        $5 Monopoly 2nd chance ticket. Basic match game

        $20 is interesting. Under each prize is a multiplier. Not sure what the max is, but I hit $20 and had 2X under it. 

        The guy who owns the store's landlord has a store in New Jersey. He told me that once the private fuirm took over that tickets actually got better. I am not 100% sure that PA votied for it(I think I saw it though), but maybe that will be a good sign for us players. It seriously can't be any worse . Seems even Florida isn't hitting(except for a spurt here and there). Seems bad for everyone now.

          Glad you hit because I tried #000-002 on the new $20 from the beer store and won nothing. Looks like I won't be playing these tickets long.

          Then got a lot of the new $2 tickets and a couple $5 Monopolies from the Phoenixville Acme and won $2. They have a sign on the Acme machine that says that on 1/31/14, someone won $10,000 from the store on Aces & 8s. But I personally don't like that store - the hawks are awful. Any good wins are usually long gone.

          I don't want to privatize becuase of the effect on older Pennsylvanians, but they really do need to improve to keep my interest.

            I played way too many tickets today and had bad luck.

            I was out $93 after a lunchbreak then kept playing later in the day.  It was unusual to see so many of the higher $ tickets play above the stated odds.   I won't be playing for a while.

             

            2- $3 24 Karat Gold Cash (#52-53) - #53 won $5

            2- $2  Emerald 7's (#66-67)- Lost

            4- $10 100k Richer (#5-8)- #8 won $20

            4- $10 Club Casino (#15-18)- #18 won $15 

            4- $10 Metal Money Mania (#21-24)- #24 won $10

            4- $10 10X Cash- (#5-2)- #2 won $10

            4 $10 Green Streak (#6-9)- #18 won $50

             

            1 $5 Red Hot Riches (#7)- lost

            1 $5 Red Hot Riches (#23)- won $10

            4 $20 Lucky Millionaire (#2-5)- lost.  The store closed right before I could go buy another 1

            4 $20 Lucky Millionaire (#10-13)- #13 won $30

            3 $5 Red Hot Riches (#28-30)- #30 won $5

              New tickets came out yesterday here in Mass. Was thrilled to see they brought back the Gold/Silver/Platinum $5 game. Hit for 10K in 2012 when it was Gold/Silver/Platinum "7''s". This time they went with "8's". Not nearly 10K but a nice reminder as to why I like this game. Good luck to all who put in the effort to find that life-changing ticket.

                  I can honestly say I have NEVER seen PA this bad. It is pure putrid and they took all the fun out of it.

                      Hi Spincognito,

                      What a great win! I played one of those tickets yesterday, lost and was going to buy the next ticket but someone else bought 3 of those right after I did so I left the store. I still buy one ticket, scratch it and if I win leave the store and if I lose buy one more. Unfortunately that usually works if people behind me aren't going to be buying the same ticket that I am. That's great that you won 10K in 1012 on the "7"'s. The most I've ever won on a scratch ticket in Mass is 200 dollars. It seems like you are doing well winning. I rarely win or just win the amount of the ticket back.  It really does seem to be a needle in a haystack to be able to win a jackpot prize on a scratch ticket. With the 5 dollar tickets they only have 6 winning tickets worth 1 million (after taxes are taken out it's a lot less). With all the retailers in the state and not knowing where a winning ticket is going to be it just makes it soooo hard to win. Good luck to you. Do you win often on scratchers?

                          I agree. I was thinking that today,

                          I have bought approx. 10 Monopoly and haven't had one winner.

                          THe $2 dollar is just a rehash of Dublin Dollars. Same symbols and everything.

                          And could the new $20 ticket be any uglier??? Yeech.

                            Is that the first spot you scratched

                            No, I scratched all spots from top to bottom. I like to just scratch the wording under each number/symbol to look for winners. After I find a winner or winners I look for the last letter in the code to get a "clue" as to what the prize(s) mght be. So when I saw the "N", I knew it was at least a $100 winner (OHN) but there were two other possibilities, a $500 winner (FHN) or it could have been a $1000 winner using a typically losing code ending in "N" such as STN or SGN.

                             

                            I am happy with the result!

I still buy one ticket, scratch it and if I win leave the store and if I lose buy one more. Unfortunately that usually works if people behind me aren't going to be buying the same ticket that I am. That's great that you won 10K in 1012 on the "7"'s. The most I've ever won on a scratch ticket in Mass is 200 dollars. It seems like you are doing well winning. I rarely win or just win the amount of the ticket back.  It really does seem to be a needle in a haystack to be able to win a jackpot prize on a scratch ticket. With the 5 dollar tickets they only have 6 winning tickets worth 1 million (after taxes are taken out it's a lot less). With all the retailers in the state and not knowing where a winning ticket is going to be it just makes it soooo hard to win. Good luck to you. Do you win often on scratchers?

                              Thanks shyguitar,

                              I like your strategy of scratch one, buy one. Would work well in a non busy store. I do win often but like any good gambler, I speak mostly about how much I win  and infrequently about the losses! You are correct about the amount of top prizes on his game but Mass has been cutting  back on the total tickets in a print run so the odds are still better than any other state lottery. Only 25 million for this run. They do this so the games sell out and do not linger on the shelves for years and years. Yep,  still a needle in a haystack but I still enjoy it while playing within my means.

                              Here is a link to the video of the "revealing" of the 10K I hit a coupla years ago. I have a few other videos with decent wins posted as well...
