Nit bad at all omiller.  I droped a few hundo the past few days

With nothing to show.  Going to get a book of $5 blowouts next 

Week.  The place by me with tons of tickets on the wall doesnt have

One big winner of 500 or more posted from that game. It was the

Same with 20x there so i got that roll and it came out withthat

Profit of over 350 on top of what it cost. Hoping for a 1k or more soon. Its been forever it seems

Play the odds. Would seem like your store could be due for the good pack on the $5 blowout. Worse case you split it and only lose $150. I can easily do that picking up a $30 and handful of $20's.. Sometimes wonder if I have $150 to spend, why not get a $5 roll and figure at worse I lost it but have 60 chances at a $500

    Nice wins Omiller

     

     

    I decided to play a $20 Blowout ticket and a $30 Extreme Green ticket.

     

    016 on the $20 ticket hit for $20 with a single dymanite symbol. Very last spot.

    014 on the $30 Extreme Green was another dud....

     

    I get excited about the $30 tickets because they have a lot of top prizes, infact almost

    all of the top prizes left. Historically I've done terrible on them though. I think overall

    I've lost money on the $30 tickets and the biggest win I can recall was $150 after being

    down $180. This was on the first $30 ticket that came out in PA, IIRC.

     

    Dunno... not feeling the scratchers all that much. They just aren't paying.

      This week I chased more tickets than usual & I think I lost about $350 total.  I won't post all the results but just for an example I played through 11 of the $20 Monopoly ticket (#4-14) with 2 winners of $100 on #10, and $50 on #14.  I'm going to cut back severely for a while, the winners just aren't there.

        I feel your pain....

         

        While I haven't chased like that in a long time, I do get the itch and play more

        than usual every so often. I'm not really playing more often than usual right now,

        maybe a tad, but I'm doing terrible. I played two $10 Blowout tickets last night on

        049 and 050 and they both lost. 

         

        I think I already posted this, but last friday I went down to the local grocery store

        that just got one of the new instant ticket machines in and was going to play there.

        I overheard a guy talking, who was standing there scratching and buying, scratching and

        buying for a while.... he told someone he was up about $400. He was playing at least two

        of the three machines though, so I have no idea which machine / ticket he hit on. I grabbed

        one $20 blowout and left, it was a winner for $20 on a blowout symbol. I actually felt pretty

        happy about that...

         

        Who knows, maybe this year is finally the year one of us here in PA will win something decent

        on the millionaire raffle. Most of us have never won anything playing it.

          Totally forgot about raffle. Got a ticket long ago and put it away. So long ago I have a number in the 700's(purchased January 12th).Would be nice to hit on it. I am going out with a bang and got a birthday roll of $20 Blowout. Last one he had unopened. Then of course he hands me a handful of tickets for my bday as well.Will post results later tonight and nice I can use the app to scan my tickets.

            Lottery was pretty predictable. I have gotten many of rolls before with 8-9 winners. I had 4 tickets left and only had 5 winners and $140. I knew the final 4 would win. The final 4 tickets won and totalled $200, for a $340 total which is pretty average(maybe slightly above)...The other day I got tickets 001-008 with only a single $20 winner. got the end of the pack and it had $150 on the final 2 tickets. Amazing how bad they clump them anymore. 8-9 losers in a row to have 3 win in a row. Def need better spacing and more prizes than simple money back.

              I spent $105 today on Instant tickets after a decent run ($500 win and then several strings of break even or only slight losses like $20)

              Absolutely bombed ,, Worst purchase on scratch offs for me since I started playing in September

              Four of the $300,000,000 cash spectacular tickets ($10 each)
              Four of the $5k for life tickets ($10 each)
              One $2,000,000 jumbo bucks ticket ($10)
              Two Lucky Loot tickets ($5 each)
              One $2,5k for life ticket ($5)

              Lost every single one ,, Awful

              I had a bad feeling that spending such a large amount would turn out badly but didn't think I would lose on every ticket

                Forgot to say for the chasers. a single $20 winner in the 1st 10 tickets(I think 006 or 007). Randomness is bad for sure.

                  I played 6 $20 Max-A-Millions, 4 $20 Extreme Green, and 1 $10 Set For Life since last Friday, and all I won was 1 Free Ticket ($20).

                  I rotated between different stores, buying a couple of different games every day. I was hoping to stumble into a top prize or a "hot" pack, but I guess my beginner's luck expired... Sad

                    Luck is all their is in this game of "instant lottery tickets" with some states being worse than others.

                     

                     

                    Think of it like those toy crane machines. They are programmed to only allow a winner a certain percentage

                    of the time. The operators set them up in such a way that if a prize costs $1, that machine will make at least

                    $3-4 before it gives out a $1 prize. It's a little more honest on the operators side as compared to the lottery though

                    because they have to invest a significant portion into buying the prizes, pay to maintain the machine and usually

                    split the profits (percentage based usually) with the business they have the machines at. So on average, a lot of

                    people are going to loose and a few will win.

                     

                    The lottery is just in a much bigger scale. Lot and lots of people lose, a handful of people hit it big and some get

                    a mediocre payout here and there. It's a losing battle, your just hoping to be that one lucky person who scratches

                    off that big winner. You have the same chance of beating Tiger Woods in golf, you might even have a much better

                    chance at beating Tiger Woods in golf compared to winning the lottery.

                     

                    Don't play with money you can't afford to lose, and don't play with the mindset that your going to win. That's the best

                    advice I can give you.

                      I bought two $20 Max-A-Millions today (#27 and #28), intending to quit (at least temporarily) if both were losers. The last scratch on the second ticket was a $30 prize...they just had to string me along to keep me in the game Roll Eyes. Or maybe it was because I switched back to my birthyear nickel (which scratched most of my winners) for my "final" Scratcher instead of the guitar pick (I love how it can scratch so precisely) that scratched a bunch of losers.

                      GetReal720, thanks for the advice. I am kind of playing with the wrong mindset in that I am chasing top prizes. I never really intended to play Scratchers (let alone $20 Scratchers), but my payoffs from draw games (Fantasy 5 and SuperLotto PLUS) were terrible... and Scratchers have "better" odds for their top prizes compared to draw games.

                        Getreal is right. We all do it. We chase the dream and before we know it are down a few hundred.. I am learning to spend alittle. At least when you hit $100 its a profit. Otherwise you pick up 2-$300 worth of tickets. You get $100 and not even excited cause you are still down for the day.. Don't keep track either(unless you are on a tight budget). take it day to day. You can be up for the day and maybe the week, but tough to be up for the month or the year unless you spent alittle and find a $1K or above. 

                        I am happy with the new app, cause I can mix a crossword/bingo ticket in and still not have to play it. The new $5 Bingo Night. I have hit $50 on it twice and probably only ever got 5 of them max.

                          Decided on another raffle. this time I am 300XXX.. They normally sell 500,000, so they have 200,000 to sell in 6 hours? Wonder if this is the end for the raffle tickets.. they pay out $5,089,200. 300,000 tickets would be $6Million brought in. Still making money, but curious if they stop the game.

                            Another example. Today I played around $120(was owed to me from a fantasy football league). I ended up winning $200.. Was sitting here and decided to cash it for another raffle ticket and to end a $30 roll(that I knew had 4 left) and some odd balls. I hit $4.. Yep. $4.. Some days are good, some days are bad. Some stores are hot and some stores are duds.. Play with fun money and expect to lose it. If you win great, if you lose it, then it was fun money and no harm cause you did what you wanted with it.

                              Another raffle and another 2 duds. Shame cause this looks to have only sold 309616(last $ winner).. Would have been even better odds to hit. Yeah well, another lottery game I will cross off the list of playing again. I have never won and probably had 30 tickets in them all..
