I'm new on here. Noticed there haven't been many Ga scratch tickets posts in a long time. I've been playing $20 Maximum Green vigorously for the past few months. Haven't had much luck on winnings or the second chance drawing. Anyone have any luck with the Ga scratchers?

      So, Im still playing maximum green and winning a handful of $100 prizes here and there. I'm feeling opimistic about the second chance drawing because there have been a ton of people winning 2-3 different times. According to yesterday's drawing Douglas Oliver from ALbany won again after winning in May. I saved all the tickets I bought last month and will just submit them for next month's drawing with the ones I wil buy soon. It seems like either not many people participate in the drawing or there is a small handful of big spenders buying tons of tickets. What do you think?

        I am in ga and love maximum green.  I won  1 of the 2nd chance 10 grand prizes last year.

         

        Several people have won twice.  and One lady won max green 2nd chance then the next month won the 3000000 taxes paid drawing of 20,0000.

         

        I would also like to add the month I won, I had logged in 4 losing tickets that month.  So it didnt take a ton of cards for me to win.

         

         

        My largest scratch off prize for max green was 250 when i got the max symbol and 100's lots of time.  I won 300 on taxes paid by getting the star symbol.  I won 100 on 2 separate cards the same day on super millions when the card first came out.  Not a fan of the super millions game.

          Wow. That's neat to hear from someone who actually won the 2nd chance drawing! Congrats. I'm submitting 2 months worth of tickets for the next drawing. If I won one month, I believe I would be slightly up in this game. I bought a handful of 3 mil taxes paid but never won a single prize! I've won tons of $100 as well on max green, but I've got my eyes on the bigger prizes. There are still 13 top prizes left and no one has won anything big in several months. Where in Ga are you playing? I buy most tickets in midtown Atlanta and surrounding counties such as roswell, sandy springs, by the airport etc. The airport lottery stop is VERY busy. Tons of lottery buffs are in there constantly.

              I too am excited to hear about winning in the second chance drawing, especially just with just four entries. I don't know how they pick the winners, but I don't think it is random, and I will tell you why: if you look at the winners, they are spread all over the state, and many are from towns that I have never heard of, and I am 35, have lived in Georgia all my life, and I am a truck driver, so I have been to or through many cities over the years. Most of the tickets have to be purchased at Metro Atlanta area retailers, because that is where most of the population lives, but numerically, the numbers do not match. I wonder if they don't pick (random?) city first, then random ticket. After all, you have to enter online, and rest assured your city is cast along with your ticket number. I too have won $300 on $3,000,000 Taxes paid, and plenty of other hundred dollar prizes on Maximum Green, Jingle Jumbo Bucks and a few others. I won $75, and $150 on the $5 game, Holiday Gifts, but I have played it more than anything else. I too am hoping for the big one, and if you read my other post, I won $300,000, but it was just for a minute (it magically turned into a free ticket).

                  Wow, congratulations. We need to meet so I can shake your hand and maybe some of your good luck can wear off on me. That is outstanding. I guess the other was a free ticket, but that is better than nothing. What part of Atlanta do you live in? I am in marietta. Would you mind telling me what store or chain store you got your good finds?

                    Im in the same city.  But I buy at different stores.  Rarely do I get good wins at publix, i dont even know why I bother buying there.  Busy Gas Stations are my Fav, like Race Trac - delk rd, Chevron - powers ferry, and theres a little store on Johnsons Ferry I like Country something?  I think its a PHillips Station.  But a big win can be anywhere and Ive yet to find one.  Theres one lady I read about in Gwinnet that has won big like 4 times.  But regarding publix, the one on delk road just had a $250,000 winner out of the machine on the jeep game last week.  So the wins are in there too.

                    I never have bought a whole roll.  I just buy small quantities and hope thats the one.  If i get half my money back, im happy.

                      I live in the heart of Atlanta (Midtown) and buy from various publix kroger etc but like you my best wins only come from busy gas stations. I have a budget of no more than $1000 per month on nothing but $20 tickets and I always get more than half my money back so I don't ever feel like it's too huge a loss since $20 tickets have such a high return. Carhauler, what happened with the 300k? I wonder when they will end Maximum Green. I understand it's been around forever. You would think one of the big wins should be hit soon since it's been several months and the game is getting old. Regarding your theory on the 2nd chance game, I don't think they evenly spread the cities on purpose because I sat one day and recorded how many times people in atlanta won roswell won etc and in many months, 2-3 of the same cities had winners in the same month. I love to play at the airport because that stop is SUPER busy around the clock and there in one at the north and south terminal and you could just run across to both :)

                          I know! That gives me hope to keep playing. Do you think that means we shouldn't play in or around Savannah anymore? I'm thinking I'm gonna start playing Millionaire Jumbo Bucks. I've never played but it seems to have high odds and more top prizes left than the other games. Anyone having luck with that?

                              I was certain that I had won $300,000 on $3,000,000 Taxes paid, but it was a tiny piece of scratch-off dust that made it look like I had won the $300K. I was all shaky and called my wife and she was like no way, and I swore it was true. then i wiped the card a little cleaner, and it was the wrong number. It did win a free ticket though. Maximum Green has had about 4 of the 6 $5,000,000 prizes paid out, so there is still some life left in it.

                              Galottery.com has winners posted in there, but they are the most recent wins. I wish they had a refreshable web query to see where and when each ticket was purchased. I think they are supposed to print all of the tickets at the same time, but I wonder if they don't hold back the big winners, but I doubt it because if they did that too much the games would never end. My guess is that the last two (if they have been shipped) are at a lonely lottery retailer that is way out in the boonies.

                              I bet a roll of Maximum green might last six months at some places, and that may be where they hide. One day I might take a fair amount of cash and go driving through  the backwoods, and stop at the stores in small towns that do not seem too busy. Just as a busy retailer might be a good bet, one rarely visited might be as well. That would explain why this game has lasted so long. I occasionally play Millionaire Jumbo Bucks, just for that chance at  bigger prize. Maximum Green has the best odds of winning prizes in the hundreds of dollars, while MJB has the best odds of winning in the thousands, but it is so old most of the good tickets are probably gone. I firmly believe that they put out the most big winners when the game first comes out, just to drum up excitement.

                              Although I mainly play $20 games, I do play $5 and $10 games, and sometimes less. I did win $100 on a $1 ticket once at QT, where there never are any big wins. I think they get the <snip>tier tickets because they do not carry many games. I still firmly believe that some folks, especially lottery retailers have learned a system to to pick good tickets. I see $500 winners Of the $10 Georgia Lottery Black posted all over, but I have never won more than $25 on that game, and I have played it probably at least 75 to 100 times.

                              Look on this site for a news story about the luckiest lottery retailers. It is in another state, but there have been many instances of owners of these stations having hundreds of thousands of dollars won by the owners and employees. One station owner had something like $1,500,000+ in winnings between the owners and their family members and other employees. I need to get a job at a gas station, or figure out the secret to the lottery.

                              For a reason unknown to me, some stations black out the winning tickets validation number on the ticket. This leads me to believe that a certain number sequence on a certain ticket means something significant. One time when I asked to keep a $100 winner, the clerk made sure to black out the validation number to before giving it back to me. The system knows if a ticket has already been paid, but what if someone were to say separate two lottery tickets, and glue the front of a $500 winner onto the back of a $20 winner. It would come up us a winning ticket, I just don't know what the end result would be.

                              I keep having a vision of buying a lottery ticket at a certain gas station about half an hour away from where I live, maybe a little further, and I don't know why. I never played the lottery before at that station, because I didn't play when I used to go there. It was just near an attraction. Maybe this is my store. It is crazy, but I have felt compelled to drive up there just to buy some tickets. Who knows, maybe I have a mental defect, or maybe there is something good there.

                              I can't wait for Jingle Jumbo Bucks to come out.I played the hell out of it last year. I won plenty of $100 and $50 prizes, but I am going for the million dollar prize this year. It was great at first, and then like all $10 tickets, the prizes go away quickly. I will give you a short story about a game I used to play a lot: Holiday Gifts. I was consistently making a good profit on it time after time again. I won more than I lost, then boom, after a big win, and after the rolls started getting past a certain number, the prizes dried up and what winners there were were small prizes, mostly free tickets. This is a $5 game, and when I first started playing it there was never a free ticket, out of at least 100 that I had purchased, but just as if a light switch were turned off, so were the prizes.

                              At first I was winning at odds of 1 in 2 tickets, but I watched the rolls at certain stores, and bought when I felt the time was right, and it usually was. It had odds of 1 in 4.01 or something like that, and I was winning at twice that rate, then after a few months I kept on winning nothing, my odds were worse than the stated odds, and the winners sucked. They got you hooked with all of the big winners at first, then turned the cash cow off. Think about it, if I was winning at twice the stated odds, then to make up for it they had to put out tickets at half the stated odds 8 in 1 to balance it out. I know. I bought between 125 and 150 of those tickets, and at most of the same stores. I used to, and probably will again, kept all of the statistics in an Excel spreadsheet. Some stores wone far more often than others.

                              Someone knows which ticket is a winner, and how much it won. They say they shuffle the tickets and mix them up good, but someone has to know where the winners are going. Someone has to know which roll contains the big winner. I wonder how compartmentalized it is. If those individuals knew each other, they could find the winning roll. Of course they wouldn't be able to cash in the big winner, perhaps they would just have to work out something with someone not related to them. Perhaps a store clerk that sells the ticket. The sad thing is that if anyone knew how to do this, they would never post it. Perhaps I could work out a deal with lottery officials who knew where the big winners were...
