Tonight stopped for bubble gum and my evening picks, on the way out, Birthday Cash (029) caught my eye, Hit the machine for one ticket and won 50$ from the bonus area....Then saw the 5x bin, played three of those and hit for $10 on one of them (ticket 172). (5x 2$)

So for six bucks I came out 54$ a head. Gotta save it though as I have a goal to wait til I am at 100$ and then I am buying $10 tickets (qty:10) I am on a mission to at least be assured that PURE GOLD isnt the scam I think it is.

Matt , the guy earlier in line behind me was the next in line , he saw that I chose them, but I wouldnt call him a hawk,he seriously didnt even know if he should play 10$ in two dollar tickets or 2-Five dollar ones, I was the one that suggested he would do better wins on 5$ tickets....

    Wouldn't have been surprised if it was Diamonds & Pearls since $100s are so rare on Diamonds & 7s. Good luck with your choice, omiller!

    Thanks. I remember in the mid 90's all packs were $300. Can you imagine getting a pack of $20 tickets and only having 15 of them? Even worse.. 12 of the $25 ones. You could theoretically only win once or twice per roll.

      Just some advice its better to buy a roll when the store has only 1 in stock or has to make a special order. Each one of my good rolls was an 'extra' the store had laying around that they only ordered 1 roll of and where waiting to put out. 

      Green & Gold is a game publix does not carry around me but when I found out they had a roll, ordered by mistake i guess. i bought it and hit big.

      Same with Ruby Red 7s and Casino Action. those are games you have to order yourself because they are older and not so popular. so my local convenience store only ordered 1 roll for the month and i bought it before it hit individual sale. 

      On Black Pearls I just got lucky. I wanted something else, drove around for an hour and went to 10 different stores and they had nothing so it was getting late i decided to stop by publix and get a roll there. at first the clerk said they had Silver 7s and 20X The Cash. I asked do you have anything else she said oh yeah we got one last Black Pearls but that is going in the machine tomorrow. i said no need for that and bought it and hit big.

      So what im trying to say is, if the store has 5 rolls of 1 game pass. chance are they are all cold rolls from the same 'pool' of tickets meant to make profits for lottery.

        Nice hit. my $50 came in the bottom area on one match. I often find I hit better on hunches or when I don't play alot. When you chase, $50 or more can easily evaporate. If you just spend $5 a day or something within reason, you generally profit better cause you arent dumping $100 at one shot and trying to play catch up.

          Thanks James. That was my thought. PA looks to have released more 20X winners, so I am thinking if he has to order one, I will get one of the fresh batch. Last week he showed me the rolls he had and it easily had to be about 20-30 of them .. The guy has (2)-30 compartment stands on the counter and another clear sheet through the counter of 10 or so. He def has alot. He often has 2 rolls of the same game going and seems like he sells alot. I will walk back over after a few hours and even on older games, I will find a good gap if I want another ticket.

           

          I keep checking Lottocrawler since they have that app to tell best tickets, but I am not sure what criteria it uses to get the results. I am guessing it is just top 3 prizes.

            Jeez thats a lot of rolls. most anyone ive seen in Florida have is 5 rolls of 1 game, usually the $20 games or a new $5 game.

              Sorry. I meant 30 rolls in general, not just one game.

                  I would bet he has every game still active and some ready to go back(Hershey and Kisses and the Christmas ones) since the top prizes are gone. Looking on PA's website, I would say he has all except maybe the Halloween ones. By far the place around me with the best selection. I go into some stores and they might have 5 total games.

                    yeah ive seen places here that only carry $1 and $2 games. i think they are afraid to keep too much cash around or something ...

                      That's how I'm playing for a while. No more than $20 a day. The high 20s and low 30s seem to be a good spot on Birthday Cash - I had one hit for $40 on #031.

                        Ughhhhhhh!!!!!!

                        So as of Friday 5/13 i was up a total 10 $600. Aso of today, 5/16 I am at $0000000000000.0000000000. What a lousy beat. I took a bath the past two days. Sure I hit $100 a few times but the $500 win gave me the itch. I just couldn't stop. The tickets are like a disease sometimes. I sleep, eat and breathe these tickets. NOT GOOD!!!!! I'm literally having dreams about scratch tickets. What a crock of Sh!!!!!!!!t. So as of today I am cutting WAY back! My new limit is $20 per week. Also, new rule is no more playing off of winnings.

                          Put in $20 + my $5 winnings:

                          #057 Pure Gold - loser (definitely getting a different $10 game next time)

                          #050 Lucky Cherry Slots - loser

                          #034 Birthday Cash - $10 winner

                          #046 Winner Take All - loser

                          So that's a better percentage back than yesterday. Maybe I'm improving.

                            Well... my time in Florida has come to an end.  My last night in Orlando I bought a $20 monopoly and hit GO.  On that... I will "GO" away with $200 (well, really $180) extra in my pocket.  Good luck to you Florida folks and everyone else who scratches.  I'm moving on to a land with no scratchers.  (North Dakota)

                            How are you going to win if you don't play?
