Good thing I tried the $10 ticket one more day! Got #024 Buried Treasure from the Limerick Giant, which lost again. Was going to stop, but tried #025 as I was checking out. And guess what - I just skip the $500s. $1,000 winner!! 10 Map symbols with $100 each. So happy - picture soon

Here is the picture:

      Thanks! Yes that is a rare find as odds are something like 1 in 3,750 for $1,000. Yet in all these years I can't beat 1 in 300 odds for $500 on $20 tickets. Lottery can be odd.

        Hey Everyone!  (Good win Matt)!!! 

         

        After 6 months of no gambling, I slipped and fell. It wasn't a scratchoff, I haven't touched one this whole time--but on Sunday, March 8th, I found myself in a casino. I knew it as it was happening. I justified it by telling myself that since it isn't a scratchoff-- and since I've done so well and stayed strong-- that somehow "I'll be alright."

        I lost $500. Inexcusable, and the feeling of guilt stuck with me. It's the SAME feeling of losing on scratchoffs. It's a feeling I know all too well. I went to that ATM after losing $300 and took out $200 more. Same addiction. 

         

        I have forgiven myself and I'm taking it as another lesson that it's an every day fight.

         

        Just stopping by! Thanks for listening, thanks for your support.

          @MattFromPA

           

          Nice strike on that Buried Treasure ticket! I was going to chime in yesterday that I completely agreed

          and that they were GARBAGE! I'm glad I didn't, had you read that you may not have decided to grab

          those two tickets and find this beauty of a winner. Congrats!


          It's strange that you found a 1K before you've ever found a $500. I think I'm on my 6th or 7th one in

          less than a year, but then again I've never scratched off a 1K yet! PA lottery will make your head hurt

          if you think about it too much. Enjoy the win!

           

          @OldSchoolHits

           

          Sorry to hear, but honestly I'd look at things big picture wise. You may have had an "off day" but if your 

          doing things the way you want to be doing them 80-90% of the time then you can get away with those

          tiny relapses. If money is the primary concern, then it might not be so bad if you think about the months

          that you were able to stay on track and not gamble. Maybe it's even better that you do gamble every once

          in a while, smaller stakes, and keep that temptation at bay by giving in a tiny bit every once in a while.

           

          It's the same concept of a "cheat day" for someone dieting. If you try to go cold turkey and cut out everything

          you loved to eat but no longer can, your odds of going off the deep end and binging are pretty high. If you plan

          to indulge a tiny bit once every week, you can try to keep things at bay without going off the deep end and

          stuffing your face like crazy. That one occasion, everyone once in a while, if kept in moderation will do you no harm.

           

          Either way you decide to go at it, just know we are here for you! Best wishes!

            Thanks OldSchoolHits and GetReal!

            GetReal: yes, I was going to be done with Buried Treasure if those 2 lost. Would have been 5 losers in the last 5 tries. Could have gone to 10x The Money. Now I can take my break from lottery happy. I've had 0 $500s and 3 $1,000s. Have played for over 7 years and my only wins over $250 came last year and this year. So while I lose more often and there seem to be fewer $40s, $50s, $100s, $200s when I play compared to my first years playing, at least the 3 big ones are nice. 

            OldSchoolHits: I agree with what GetReal said. Think of it has a fun day and try not to dwell on it. It is not uncommon to hear that - just keep focused and I am sure you will be fine. Also, you still did not do scratch offs. Good luck with your quitting and we will be here to support you.

                  Here is the ticket.  Thank you & good luck!

                   

                  Hey MDguy, that's a great looking ticket! WTG on your win tooo!! It's nice to see multiple times the ticket

                  value and you did FINE on that one! GL on your next PartyParty

                   

                   

                  EDIT:

                  MDguy...hey, what kind of ticket is that, it's got Spanish also? Are all of your tickets like that in Maryland?

                  It reminds me of detergent or something where you have English and Spanish...omg, sorry to any I offend

                  but that would annoy me if PA starts doing that. wow. If they accommodate for the language barrier, why

                  don't they accommodate for the win/lose ratio on some of these games? Sorry sensitive people but really.

                   

                  WTG anyway again....even if it's in FRENCH, SPANISH, GERMAN OR MANDARIAN. LOL

                    Thanks, dr! I was expecting a nice $100 win and was shocked when I revealed the first PRIZE was $100. Hopefully I and us all get many more big ones.

                        Thanks again all and that is great, Chris! It is nice when the winning rubs off on others here. I am taking a break but will keep in touch if I find anything. Just about when I am about to give up, the PA Lottery draws me in again though.

                            Roughly how long have you been buying tickets?

                            I've been buying since the 80's and have never had a claim center ticket.

                              Been over 7 years years at least. Thanks! Took until last year to get anything over $250.

                              My dad saw someone at Wawa trying to get a voucher for a $1,000 winner - not possible - but does that mean they actually sent a few here?  I did buy my mom #001 on the new $20, but it lost. Have had very little success on #001 in general lately.
