I notice on the Ga. website that someone has won one of the top prizes of $500,000 on the Royal Riches Game, but when you look on top prize claims for that game it still shows that  0 out of 4 claimed.  Been like this for awhile, I'm constantly watching.   Hmmm, makes me wonder how many other top prizes have been claim but yet updated.  Do Research before buying tickets.

    its not in their interests to tell people that the top prizes have been won , or infact all prizes have been won, they only make their money out of all tickets being sold.  prob one of the reasons  why ive never liked scratchers.  u know the answer, if you dont like the game dont play it.

    2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

    keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

        Yeah, I agree with you. It's is only recently that Florida lottery posted a spreadsheet on their website that tells you what top prizes are remaining.

        Recently, someone won Florida lottery Black and it was not announced that there was a winner leaving only one top prize out there amongst millions of tickets out there cuz they want people to buy tickets.

        I recently saw a guy buy Holiday Millions when all the top prizes were already sold but it was too and I could not warn him.

          Yeah they still have Holiday Millions floating around here ...

          And you know why $20 Monopoly has not been producing winners ? A semi truck carrying $75 Million worth of scratch off tickets caught fire. Mostly Monopoly were affected. Check it out there is a video on youtube.

            Mad OMG! James, where did you find this? I don't play 3 Million Monopoly anyways, but I wonder was it only 3 Million Monopoly that got afftected? Looks so from the video clip. Never saw this story on the news. I wonder how tickets caught fire? Very suspect.

             

            I went ticket hunting today. Found new sources for tickets. Bought 4 five dollar scratchers (different types) , got tnothin in return.

            Here's the link 4 those who wanna see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqO7-cJoAY8

              ahh man very interesting you brought this up. I remember when this happened and the actual release date was delayed. I was telling my wife that it  was interesting that they still sold these tickets. Im very curious to know how many tickets were actually destroyed in the fire.

               

              I keep track of all big winners, prizes remaining, dates claimed, names, locations etc on a spreadsheet I created and noticed that the Monopoly took over 4 months for a top prize winner to come forward. This is very odd as most games have a top prize winner within the first 1-4 weeks.... Im still leary to find out if there were any reprints of these tickets to replace the ones lost in the fire or if the FL Lottery just started selling the remaining tickets which would totally screw up the odds. Thats why I rarely play this game

               

              I made a post about the $20 Monopoly a while back asking if people were winning on that ticket because I was having terrible luck and still do.

                I'm very leary of all of those that have been "re-ordered"

                $200 Million Spectacular which is also available at most instant machines  = always lose

                $250 Monopoly which is also in the instant machines = always lose

                Played 3 Miliion Monopoly once over 6 months ago and lost.

                  I have decent luck with the $20 Monopoly. Id go as far as saying 1 in 2 win for me but usually $25. Have hit $100 twice on them. I love the way they scratch and its fun to hit a symbol once in a while. But im convinced most of the top wins will never be claimed and were destroyed in the fire.

                    I'm only playing $5, $3,$2, $1 scratchers wor now. If I win a prize of $20.00 or more then I'll use that to buy a $20.00 ticket.

                      Im holding back on $20 scratcher because they are consistently losing for me right now. I want to try the $5 Heat and Magic games. No top prizes have been claimed for those yet.

                        I bought a Miami heat once like a week ago in the Publix instant machine. Got back my $5.00. I don't like the odds on these. After tax, you get $75,000.

                        I got one Fantasy 5. 1 lotto and one Powerball for tonite

                          I agree its kind of a waste because you can spend $10 and get $650,000 from the $10 scratchers. 

                          I like the Orange Crossword Tripler ( $3 ) I won $50 my first time playing it. Might try that tonight.

                            Another member posted that you can win 1 million with New York scratchers for just 5 bucks . So I took a look at their website. Pretty cool tickets.

                              The NY and Massachusetts scratchers pay much better then they rip offs they sell here in Florida, for sure I Agree!
