I hate those tickets...first of all, I don't think I've ever found anything consistent on them....except a LOT of losers.

Second I can't stand the swirls either...they remind me of the blank stare in the movie: Fantastic Mr Fox.

I try and stay away from them unless that's all that is there. Then only one...I'd rather play $2 tickets.

 

SUPER job on your wins Chris$!!! Nice hit on a 000 and great job on another $90 winner!! Keep on winning!!

PartyPartyParty

Thanks dr65! Money vault is prob my favorite ticket now. Ive had $300,90,90,90 and a $40 winner in the past 3 weeks on them.

      Started today with $25. Figured all the Money Vault talk I got 4 from (2) bins and $1 ticket. Returned $12. Got 4 more from the bin that lost and that paid back $6. Got (3) Spicey 6's. 1 ticket had 2 matches totaling $6. Another ticket had 6 matches totally $6. I say it 1000 times. I hate the multiple matches for less than ticket value. $25 is down to $12...

        You know what's sad? I'm not even a little excited for the new tickets. Each batch is worse than the last. That Cash Frenzy game is very, very fishy. I hope a Lottery official reads and sees the disgust from players.

          Yeah. I have no excitement. Maybe a new $20 would be nice to play if they start hot, otherwise I am content on a few bucks here and there approach for awhile. Friend of mine posted on FB that she got $100/$50 on back to back Wild 10's. i think it was 24/25 if I remember the photo correctly. I just can't stand to like that game or want to play it. too easy to get caught up in all those wild symbols. Give me an easy game like Mother's Day or Blazing 7's. at least I know I won't miss anything..

          You know what else is sad.. When you watch a commercial and think.." What if this was run by PA state lottery".lol. I saw an M&M's commercial. You get a whole bag of brown and you win something. PA would give you one red in a bag of brown or worse yet, they would make a darker/lighter shade of brown and put one of those in amongsts the others.

            Actually, with games that don't have any standout numbers/symbols (or are sometimes confusing for others, such as 5 Card Slots), I like finding tickets that people throw out of those 'cause there's no standout symbols, which people might be throwin' out winners. I usually am good wit finding winners, here and there. Hell, I was in tha store tha other day, walked up to tha machine, and it said, "$1.00 Credit," lol; just puts me in a great mood!

              I have seen a small credit as well(nothing more than $2). All my tickets I take to the self scanner, unless I am 100% sure. If I throw them away at home, I shred them, so no one else will benefit from my stupidity.. The 5 Card Slots are very confusing. I was looking at the Instant Winners from March. Same guy from my hometown(it is a small town), hit $1000 twice. I also saw the same guy from Myrtle Beach hit $1000 twice. Even saw a few Florida people hit over $1k on our lottery.. Darn it, now I have to hit up Florida and steal their money.lol

                All these new games seem to be symbol games only except for the $20 games. I like symbols, but combined with normal match chances. Another way PA is going cheap on their players.

                I have about given up until my birthday. After my good day, I had $0/$17, $6/$25, $0/$11.

                  I see we have new tickets. $2/$3/$5/$20. I might try one of the new ones heavy in hopes they put a hot roll out early. Otherwise I am sure it will be pretty much the same for PA with losers.

                    I'm gonna try buyin' one of each of tha new ones tomorrow. Hopefully, at least, tha $20 ticket will give me back at least $20...

                      The $20 one is the one I am eyeballing. I like the $20's and just get tired of the same tickets over and over. Will be nice for a change. I know Winner Take All was hot to start, so I might even debate a roll or see if the guy will open a roll for me and play it out til i hit something. Not sure I want to go $600 in to pay back $300 as a worse case. I go into any roll making sure I am ok with losing 1/2 as a worse case scenario.

                      Off Topic....I just got a thing in the mail for Hollywood Casino. $25 in May, plus May 11th at noon, you can get a BBQ set with a chance to get $1000 in slot plays. I figure since surgery is May 14th and I won't be doing anything for 2 months, I might have to save some money for a last hoorah up there for awhile.  Also I joked with the store owner if he would deliver tickets to me(I am 20 minutes from his shop), he said Yes. Guess that is a sign I play too much.lol

                        Lol, tha $20 one looks a lil' ugly & boring (tha look of it); I really like how tha $2 Spades ticket looks. Yea, I agree wit tha change of format on 'em; all these number games are ehh...

                         

                        Well, I bought one of each of tha new tickets: $2 Spades (#141), $3 Word-O-Rama (#099), $5 Hot Ticket (#056) & $20 Instant Millions (#029; looked like it was not attached to tha roll, so someone might've not wanted it--ooh, lol). I'm gonna scratch 'em live, so let's see what happens...

                         

                        $2 Spades >>> Okay, won on Game #3; scratchin' tha prize... Yucky $2.00.

                        $5 Hot Ticket >>> Nothing.

                        $20 Instant Millions >>> No bonus...; nothing at all, smh!

                        $3 Word-O-Rama >>> WTF @ startin' wit a "Z"? Dead Hopefully wit there bein' tha word "rap" on this ticket that it'll be a winner! I'm 1/2way through this ticket, lookin' like barely anything close... Down to my last 3 letters; looks like I'm prolly only gonna get tha word "Pick" 'cause I still didn't get tha letter "I". Also, with "rap", they have "ramp"; I hate when they have two words with only one letter difference. Plus, if I got "rap", I'd get "Year", too... Now, 2 letters left; if I get an "I", I get "igloo", too, winning $3.00... Ugh, last letter got me one word: "bed"; what happened to tha always-5-vowels tickets? Angry All these small words...; looks okay, but looks cheesy, too...

                         

                        Overall, $2.00/$30.00 Crying

                          Mixed results so far. Store owner told me 000/001 on Instant Millions lost. I got 002 and it hit $100. I went back later and he told me 003-005 were duds. Got 006-lost, and 007-$50 (+$90)

                          got 3- $5 Hot tickets paid $15, so even

                          Store owner said he had a hunch about Wild 10's. Got $20 and they lost

                          Got 3-Word O Rama's and $1 ticket. Got back $3 and then spent it

                          Got 1-Diamond Millionaire and paid back $25

                          Up $65 I stopped at a beer store on the way home. Got 3- Instant Millions(003-005) and Mothers Day. -004 paid back $20 and MD paid $5

                          Up $25 on the day, but very first ticket was $100 :) Also the guy ordered 6 more books of Instant Millions for tomorrow. Was going to buy the one untouched roll today, but someone beat me to it. Really worried about what he hit and hope to know tomorrow. I hate to wish someone lost, but since I was going to get the roll, I kinda hope he lost.lol  I do agree with you though. They kinda look spacey and nothing special. Just nice to have new tickets in hopes there are a few early $1000's

                            It's sad that even with help and a $100 winner that the profit was so low. Didn't see the new ones today. Wish I did. 11 of the $2 Win for Life ticket produced $4. Now I only get one small try on the new tickets Wed., and I really don't want to play even that after what I've  seen. I just plain don't believe the listed odds.

                              Mixed results so far. Store owner told me 000/001 on Instant Millions lost. I got 002 and it hit $100. I went back later and he told me 003-005 were duds. Got 006-lost, and 007-$50 (+$90)

                              got 3- $5 Hot tickets paid $15, so even

                              Store owner said he had a hunch about Wild 10's. Got $20 and they lost

                              Got 3-Word O Rama's and $1 ticket. Got back $3 and then spent it

                              Got 1-Diamond Millionaire and paid back $25

                              Up $65 I stopped at a beer store on the way home. Got 3- Instant Millions(003-005) and Mothers Day. -004 paid back $20 and MD paid $5

                              Up $25 on the day, but very first ticket was $100 :) Also the guy ordered 6 more books of Instant Millions for tomorrow. Was going to buy the one untouched roll today, but someone beat me to it. Really worried about what he hit and hope to know tomorrow. I hate to wish someone lost, but since I was going to get the roll, I kinda hope he lost.lol  I do agree with you though. They kinda look spacey and nothing special. Just nice to have new tickets in hopes there are a few early $1000's

                              Oh no, you're in that boat of just missin' somethin', too... $100 seems exciting to me, though; feels like it's been a long time since I hit a $100! Sometime this week, I think I'm gonna be able to finish tha independent study I did for class, featuring some lottery moments from this message board from two weeks ago; should be really exciting!
