I just left this store in my neighborhood that claims to be "The luckiest store in town". They hang up all the winning tickets they sell or cash in. Today they sold the $500 winner on the new Gold Rush Tripler. It was ticket #006.

Did you win the ticket? Or was it one that they just hung up ? I always had my best luck between #000 - #010.

    No I didn't win. If I won I would have posted the ticket. It was posted with the validation ticket with today's date. I did buy my quick pick powerball tickets from there. Fingers crossed.

      Picked up 2 more GRT at Publix on the way home yesterday.  #08 and #09 both losers.  So far this week down $100 from GRT, no winning tickets for me.

        I have not played this one yet, I got discouraged after seeing this lady buying tons of tickets and losing. That's a lot of cash to lose.

          Un-freaking believable.  I bought 3 more GRT on my lunch break today.  #14-#16, again all losers.  Not one winning ticket of any amount this week.  The Florida Lottery wonders why it's losing popularity and this is one reason.  They flood the markets with too many losing tickets which hurts the posted odds for each game.  Once a player loses enough he or she quits playing.   In 2010 there were many more winning tickets.  I hit Gold Rush Gold bar $500 4 times and $1,000 twice and $100 more times than I can count on Billion Blockbuster.  Something changed in 2011 as I have been lucky to break even on any week.  I hit $200 on Monopoly once and several $20-$30 wins but mostly losers all year.  I will keep trying the Gold Rush Tripler a little longer but if it continues to suck me dry I will be taking another break from the Florida lottery.

              Sorry to hear your bad luck with GRT. I posted my GRT best results w/2pics the other day. The lucky gas station I buy from just got in a few rolls on the Sept 6 launch - I must have been lucky to get three $100's and a $50 from #000 -#009. Since then I've only bought a few tickets and got zippo. IMO if you get to buy from a hot roll you'll get some decent wins. But how do you know when the roll your buying from is hot? They have it all figured out - as in how to vacuum our wallet dry. They toss a few good wins out for us and we'll come running. Example of hot rolls was in the first/second week of April when I hit four FMC stars, five $500's and a few 20X. I stopped playing FMC weeks ago because I got way too many duds since then. Hope you do better wbrightfl !! The most I ever won on a scratcher was $5K August 2010. I'll post the pic.

                  They tend to stick a bunch of good wins all on 1 roll to get addict players excited then they just drain you on the next 5 rolls which are all cold. 

                  As for April, i think the lotto opened their vault and sent out tons of hot rolls everywhere. It has not been the same since or before that.

                    Completely agree....April 4th I hit five hundred on Gold Rush. It was #022.

                      Congrats Ed cant believe you almost tossed it out lol

                      The odds for $5K on this game are worse than the odds for $10K !!!

                        I hit all my big wins in 2 weeks. $4K, 2x $1K, 3x $500, 5x $200 and about 30x $100

                        Have not hit anything over $400 since. I think the $400 was a fluke anyway cause the roll was from miami not here !!

                          Yeah I can't believe I tossed it then later decided to recheck all the tickets I tossed out and found one that had a number unscratched and won $5K ! Makes me wonder if I ever threw out another decent win !!

                            Bought 2 more GR Triplers from a different Publix yesterday & 1 more this morning by my work. All 3 losers.

                             

                            Not looking good, and Im not liking this game much at all!

                            Ive asked around at the different stores how they are doing, and they all say the same thing "havent really seen any decent winners, just people getting their money back". These stores I buy from flip rolls like they are going out of style too, and still no decent winners.

                              GRT only has ten $500K and four $1.95M lump sum top prizes. If the game lasts a couple of years like past GR's those prizes could be put out few and far between. BDB still has 82 $1M and 6 $10M  left to win. Even the ten dollar $200MS still has 8 top $1M prizes. With those prizes still out there - what would you be buying ? I think GRT is another money maker for the Lottery. I talked to a lot of GRT players and not one won the Gold Nugget yet. My best wins were $100.
