How likely for two consecutive tickets to be both winning tickets?

          Not common, but likely happens fairly often on $2 games in PA. PA is streaky anyway with their tickets. Got 2 wins in a row on the new $20 yesterday.

            I wonder if any win over $100 had a 2nd winner before or after. Back in the day I went $40/$80 on back to back. I think it was a $5 or $2 ticket. Generally now if I see back to back it is generally ticket value both times or maybe double ticket value on one.

              omiller - happened on Big Winner Spectacular when it was still pretty new. #008 and #009 both won $100. Haven't seen this happen since then.

                All my big winners were back to back followed by a $20 or $10 I forget

                    I just went 4 in a row on a $1 ticket. Nothing special but it was Gus Bucks. 284-287. It went Free-$2-$2-$5

                      Uncanny luck ! Decided to use my number system buying $20 GR's. Found the right bin and bought seven in a row. First was $1,000 (ten $100's ) followed by a $500 (five 100's) win. The two were the only winners out of the seven. Went to the Tampa office to cash in the $1K and there was a guy with a $10K FMC winner. He tells me he never bought scratch offs before (yeah right)

                      This was the first $1K GR ticket I ever got.

                        Everytime I buy consecutive tickets, the winners are usually the very first ticket and the rest are losers.  More than likely I will probably be getting just one ticket of each game from now on.

                          Nice wins skeptic !!

                          This is the 3rd time I hear of a GR roll producing $1k and $500 winners

                            Today I bought the last 21 ticket in the Match 3 Tripler and got only 3 free tickets (all in a row) and the others were all losers. Two years ago I won $1,000 on two consecutive tickets on the $2 PacMan tickets. I have a picture somewhere of them I can post. Rolls have not proven anything to me at all. I bought a roll recently of the $3 crossword and got only $152 back, for investing $300. There is NO way to tell no matter what anyone thinks.

                              Funny about the roll Malie10. I just did the same, but not at the same time. I just kept playing and kept getting them in order.Decided to buy out the pack.  A late $50 saved the roll and I think it hit about $190. HAd a Win For Life Roll hit $124, so my 2 have sucked. Crossword having the best odds, sure seems to have crappy tickets. Sorry off topic...
