        I have a question. If I play a $2 dollar ticket and win $100 does that mean I really won $98 after $2 are taken to cover the price of the ticket. So in order to win $100 on a $2 ticket wouldn't you have to win $102? If you play a $1 dollar ticket and get only $1 back you consider it breaking even and not winning any money so shouldn't the same thing go for higher priced tickets as well?

            Some pretty decent winners in here since I've posted last! Congrats!

             

             

            I haven't played a single ticket since I've zipped on all those Fantastic 10's and 

            I honestly for once really have no urge to play. I'm spending the money elsewhere

            on things that I will actually have and get to keep and use. I'm wanting to save up

            some cash to get another vehicle, without needing a loan and car detailing has always

            been somewhat of a hobby for me so I've decided to finally invest in some nicer tools

            and products for that as well as splurge on upgrading some of my computer equipment.

             

            I'm a software engineer who relies on his computer for a living and my current workstation

            is over 6 years old, mind you it's still fairly fast but it's at that age where every reboot is a 

            roll of the dice as far as if it will come back up and work smoothly. So I i picked up a nice laptop

            on eBay that needed minor repair and started that, and I'll do some upgrading like more memory

            and a solid state disk. All of these things are worth more than the "thrill" of maybe finding the

            big one....

             

            I will be buying my usual 3-5 entries for this "4th of July" millionaire raffle and I will probably be

            picking up some mega millions / powerball tickets here or there. I'm just done with the $200-$300

            a month worth of scratchers.

            This is me exactly. Down to the computer guy and 6 year old PC. Probably closer to 4, but I built it heavy then to last me awhile. I have no need for the new 10 core/20 thread Intel processor.lol  Anyway I told people that June 1st was my last day and sticking to it. Also in the market for a new car too. I wish I could say it was a fun ride but it hasn't. I wish I would have stopped a few years ago, but then you hit a $500/$1K and makes you want to play some more, since you don't have to hit the ATM. I am sure I will do the novice thing and get a new ticket or so when they come out, but it will be 1 of each on a specific day, not tons of each all month. Alot of other things happened recently also and its just time to hang them up. I will most likely stop coming around here too to resist the temptation...I found out that you can't delete your account, but make it dormant. Maybe I will host file my home PC(DNS at work) to block lotterypost :) Hopefully you guys hit big and its been fun chatting with alot of you.

              I won $200 on Illinois $2,000,000 Cash Extravaganza ticket (Got 10x symbol on 2nd part of game with $20 as prize to be multipled)

              But I am worried because I scratched to reveal barcode (As I always do its easier on cashier's , etc if it is ready to go) and it is smudged for some reason

              Never had a barcode look like this and it wasn't my coin that did it ,, I am going to bring in ticket to redeem it tommorrow and see what happens and what they say

              Hopefully machine reads it but its pretty messed up looking for some reason. If machine doesn't read it and they wont redeem it I guess I would swing to downtown office of Lotto headquarters at some point in summer and see what they say


              Not a fan of this ticket and this was only 2nd time I have played it since it came out. If it wont redeem this will deter me in future from playing it

              This ever happen to anyone else?

                They can redeem it.  You have 3 ways to redeem a ticket.

                 

                1.  Scanning the barcode.

                2. The clerk can manually enter the numbers from the ticket and it will prompt a payout.

                3.  If it's too badly damaged you can take it to the regional lottery office and they will pay it out.

                    I took a beating chasing tickets today.  I lost all of my recent profit.  I think I lost about $380 total.  $20 tickets were not good but hopefully I'll win on my 5 Card Cash & other draw games.  I think I will quit for good soon.

                      Scratching is fun when your winning, annoying when you lose and just plain disheartening when you start dumping

                      piles of cash with what feels like no hope of turning it around. My biggest lotto prize was 1K, twice, on the Match 6 PA

                      number game in 2014. I've hit several $500 scratchers... and each time you just feel on top of the world. You feel great,

                      until you dump half or more back into the till. Then you feel sick, and stupid and regret even leaving the house to get tickets.

                       

                      At the end of the day, this is a business and it's designed to make money. Things are set up so that it will most definitely make

                      money, and a lot of it. Sure lots of people score nice little wins, a fair amount even hit decent chucks and the lucky few do hit it

                      big. It does happen, people become millionaires off of it. It happened at a store that I do most of my playing it. But we have to 

                      remember the fact that this is again a business and it is designed to make money and it will make a lot of money. They don't

                      make a lot of money by paying out a lot of people. They make money by having a lot of people lose.

                       

                      Most of the people here are math people to some extend. I have a degree in math. I'm smart enough to know the odds are stacked

                      heavily against me, and I'm FAR better off keeping my money. I COULD win, I COULD be the guy to hit it big.... but I could also 

                      spontaneously combust, I could get run over by a train and live, I could do any number of any incredibly unlikely things... but I won't

                      hold my breath for any of them. I'll still play, throw my buck in the hat every now and then and hope for the best. But like omiller said

                      I won't be tossing hundred dollar bills around any more.

                       

                       

                      @ Omiller

                       

                      If you truly do decide to give up the board for good, I wish you the best. Hopefully things work out well for you in life.

                              VA just launched some new tickets. Decided to try out the new $5 & $10 ones. Spent $20 originally and won $25. Spent another $5 and won $10. Decided to take that and try on some more at another store. Ended up winning $70. Not a bad start to the new tickets.
