Ok, So, even more new games have been put out on the shelves in FL.   But get this,  to make room for a new game, the Lottery sales team will remove an older game from the retail slot in the case.   The roll may be mid way through or whatever is left.

I asked what happens to the tickets removed.  They get destroyed.   Ok, so if there is only 1/5 prizes left and the game is getting older with new games out,  then the game with 1/5 has a good chance that its Jackpot is actually unavailable.

sounds like false advertising to me and even if FLLottery is not doing it on purpose, the continual removal of older games with prizes left  and introduction of new games seems fishy and they are getting pure greedy.  So, that will limit me even further.  No sense even trying for older games that have 1 or 2 prizes left.

For now, I need to stick to only playing games with at least half of their jackpots available.

    Call me crazy but I dont think the jackpots are getting destroyed. The Florida lottery time releases jackpots and they know exactly which roll they are on. Someone in the lotterys security department knows im sure. 

    On the other hand games like $250K Club , Cool $100K and Casino Action do raise eyebrows. Why were the first 2 ended with half the jackpots remaing ? Why has Casino Action not produced a jackpot in over 2 years ?

      We can only hope that Jackpots are not destroyed or removed from shelves and put back in warehouse status.  However, at one location, I overheard the clerk and Lottery official,  they were discussing which game to remove to make room and mentioned "let's take the one that has the fewest on the roll"

      So there may not be any co-ordination as to leaving a Jackpot on the rack.  Now since there are so few Jackpots it is possible that information is disseminated out pertaining to those 1 or 2 rolls at the 1 or 2 stores to  leave those rolls alone and the rest are fair game.

      And if it is true that Jackpots are left either on the shelves or ready to be rotated onto a shelf from the warehouse then that could be good. And the fact that tickets are pulled off shelves would actually increase the chances of getting a winner if the game were to be older and tickets were found on the shelf (As long as one could determine that the warehouse was fairly empty for that game)

      I know in the case of Cool 100,000  there were just no tickets in my area and so I'm guessing the Jackpot tickets were available and on the shelf of at least some of the 13,000 retailers in FL and not in the warehouse but that game went away with half it's Jackpots.  Same thing happened with Treasure Hunter and looks like it is happening now with Match and Win, but I just can't play Match and Win, it is awful to scratch and sure you can check for the code for the small prizes but you have to play through to see if it is a prize over 600.00 and can't go by the code.

      I'm mainly going to back it down to just one game for now, Not your favorite James but I don't know what it is, I like it better than most other games ,I'm going after Color of Money.  I think it helps that I grabbed good hits so far and I do think there is a Jackpot somewhere not too far from me on that one.   I've also just been carefully choosing sometimes 2 tickets here and there and not snapping up 5 to 10 and sustaining a loss so I haven't gotten mad at it yet. But I'm wanting to step it up to see if I can hunt down a bigger prize.

        I totally Agree I was a loyal player of Match and Win and Casino, but I got so upset at them Match and Win I stopped playing outright because it seems like a scam as well as Casino maybe a distraction because I only saw someone cashing in a $500 Casino and the publix lady told them in front of me you are lucky because this game does not give anything much. I have been a loyal believer and player of Casino but i got tired of loosing I think once I won $50 that's it out of so many different ones that I would play at different stores  SO why would they say this they see an cash everyday winners. But it does seem kind of strange like they take it off the shelf eliminating a fair play in my opinion.
