Yeah, I might buy about 4 more today. I won one and lost one yesterday like I posted so I have a few more dollars to buy some more. Can't beleive that I haven't won more than $10 in the WOF tix yet. One of my coworkers won $40 once....

      Ok cool dude, I bought 4 more WOF tix today and only cashed $5 on one of them. The rest of them (3) will go into the second chance drawing which I believe brings me up to 28 chances.

      Good luck, you hear of anyone having more than 32 chances? I doubt it right?

            Cool dude, which IL instant games did you win the $100 on? Just curious.

            Also, do you look at the amount of remaning instant prizes off the Illinois Lottery website and try to play the games that have the most prizes still available? That's what I try to do.

            Finally, what is the most you have won on the IL WOF tickets so far? $15 here...

              The 2 games I won the $100.00 on was the $5 dollar mega millions/powerball Instant game and the $20 dollar Winter/Spring Spectacular... I look at the remaining prizes page... But I still play the games I am feeling.... and the most I have won on WOF tickets... is $10 dollars...

                Cool dude, do you think they will show the winners during the Lottery drawing on TV on Thursday or will just post on the website?

                    Cool dude, also do you think it's best to withhold some tickets for the third drawing or do they retain your tickets entered for the first drawing to the rest of the drawings if you don't win this Thursday?

                    I'm trying to see if I should save most of them for the last drawing like we talked about, which is the third one, since the last last drawing not for the trip. If they don't keep rolling over to the next drawing then I should hold onto some but if they keep your entries from the first drawing to the second drawing and so on then I should enter them as I get them you know what I mean?

                    Thanks!

                      Illinois lotteryman... I was just looking on the website. The drawing is on august the 4th... But they are not announcing the winners till or on about August the 8th.. I have a few tickets here that I am holding back till after this 1st drawing.. Cause I was wondering if all the tickets I have enter rollover to the next draw if they don't win..

                        Cool dude, just saw this on the posted rules on their website:

                        -"After each drawing, all entries included in that drawing will not carry over to each succeeding Hollywood Trip Grand Prize Tripdrawing." However, any non winning tickets will be carried over to the Multi-State Second Chance $1 Million Bonus Drawing, where 9 winners will be drawn after these first 3 drawings are completed!

                        Man this is confusing :)

                        So this probably changes my strategy then. I should just continue to enter them on the website. There really is no reason to hold any back as long as you plan to have the equal amount of entries for each drawing period, you know?

                          I think the reason for the delay from the August 4th drawing to the August 8th announcement date is because they have to verify all your information and the winner has to prove that they are in posession of the ticket. Don't throw out any of your tickets that you entered online because you need them for verification if you win.

                              Well, tomorrow's the big day, hopefully we'll get a call from the IL Lottery so we can verify all our information :)
