I have to ask, why blow all the money on three rolls? I've noticed that you (meaning you in specific, Jada) seem to win decently when you spend less. Why not just take that money you won and use it to spend a little bit each day?

im not into winning a little i play for the big prize .50 or 100 bucks is okay to win here and there but i play for the life changer lol

    Yeah but the odds are basically the same either way. You'd have to literally buy hundreds of thousands of tickets to increase your odds realistically.

        the odds are better buying rolls. look at it this way you can walk in with $200 bucks get random tickets of each game out there and lose on every ticket. its happened to me before. but with rolls at least you get something back and you have more chances at a big winner...

          if that roll has a winner its guarenteed to be mines rather than buy 4 or 5 tickets and somebody else gets it

            i bought ten money for life 5 dollar tickets anda  ten dollar set for life ticket .Only had 60 bucks today to play so i went for it only made back 20 bucks.I cant seem to hit anything good tomorrow im buying 3 rolls of make me rich tomorrow is the first day they are on sale.Usually the second prize on a ten dollar ticket is 25k now it was reduced to 20 k so im very pissed over that instead of raising the prize they lower it and keep the same odds. I wish i could hit for 5 k or something i dont like hitting anything under 1k.Im investing 1500 tomorrow and hopefully i can make something.I predict that i will havea blue hand and  im going to be pissed.I just hope tomorrow is my day wish me luck all

                  Its kind of unfair to an extent in my area cause out of 18 active $5 scratch offs I can only buy 8 or 9 of them in my area, and id be lucky to find a retailer selling me a roll of half of those ... the major stores only carry the 4 newest games. I want to buy some of the older stuff as I feel my odds would be better

                              I picked up one each of the new tickets. Lost on Fathers Day, lost on Black Pearls, lost on the $30,000 $2 game (I forget what its called), but I won $15 with a coin on Make Me Rich. Meh.
