Had a lucky break tonight the giant I go to had put power 7s in the wrong
Slot on the machiene. It had a $2 price instead of $5 so i put a $20 in
and bought 10! I won $125 off that mistake, bet they wont do that again. I've
never see that before too bad they werent $20 tickets!  I would have bought the roll!

I have seen that before. I would have grabbed the rest of them at that price. I use to fill machines back in the 90's and it is human error. We had to adjust price and cutting length, so it is very easy to mess up. Nice wins!!

    Alot of the tickets were already purchased but I got to it at ticket#039 and once I hit the hundred on the

    #044 ticket I figured anything after that would prob be a waste. Ticket #041 was $5 winner and ticket #47 was a $20

    so I cant complain but I wasnt willing to dump anymore in on those tickets.

      Good point.  On a whim I bought a book of Big Money. Seems to have the best remaining prizes on $5 tickets. I am on ticket #013 with only 1 winner so far. a $10 winner. I hope it picks up soon or this confirms my beliefs about PA!!!!!

        Results of my awesome roll of Big Money. $155 back. 14 winners out of 60, so 1 in 4.28. Slated odds are 1 in 4.22. Biggest wins were 038 @$50 and 055 @$20. Nothing other $10 otherwise. Just proves to me that you have to be at the right spot and time to even get anything decent. Doesn't pay to buy in bulk.  I went into it with the mindset of handing over $300 to get $150 back, so I can't be too upset. Anything more would be a bonus.

          Hit on some new tickets tonight and a halloween $5.
          Halloween on #020 was $50 I still like these tickets seem to be
          good at least for $20 almost every time I play one. Also won on
          the $20 millionaire winner take all. #003 was a $50 winner.
          and the $10 christmas ticket on 001 was a $40 winner and I got
          2 hot hand on #058 and #059 which was a $40$ winner with a double
          JACK symbol. All in all not a bad day, put about $60 in the machine and
          made a little over $120 I think. Ill take it and hopefully get more tom!

            Just found 049/050 on Treasure Tree. 049 hit $100 and 050 hit $50. Didn't know PA went back to back like that anymore. I havent seen the new ones yet. Looks like you found alot of decent winners. Maybe PA is turning around alittle. Maybe they release them in spurts knowing when the winners are released.

                None of this is me personally, but just what the store owner told me. He said he had 4-$1000 winners this week claimed there. One was purchased in a book of Merry Millions, one was an open roll of Winner take All. The other 2 were purchased elsewhere. Winner Take All was ticket 008. I bought ticket 003 and debated spending my extra winnings($100) on the next 5, but I didnt trust PA. Means I could have had the 1K winner. Yeah well. Also told me someone got a book of Merry Millions. The 1st 16 paid back $320, the rest of the roll was all losers. 14 in a row. There is the PA we know and love.  I had a $50 here or there, but nothing major. Saw DR65 post a $400 winner on a $2 ticket in the other forum.. Nice win. I like seeing multiple matches before I scratch the match #'s to know I won, but I feel more confident when I only see one winner to get a decent prize. Multiple wins seem to be dissapointing whereas I seen a few good single line payouts hung up at the store. Good luck to everyone.

                  I took a brief break and still PA HAS LOSERS. I went slow this time. Went to my new gas and still the same ole losers. I tried the new winner take all $20 tickets brought the last 10 in the back nothing but $20. I asked him to open a new pack started to just buy the whole pack but I promised myself I will take it slow. Brought one after another. Down $200 went back to mac this time I am at #12 in the new roll at this point only two winners #6 $25 and #10 $20 so I get the next 6 and finally win $100. At this point I walk out the store Down with $100 in my pockets still down $200 left ticket #19. Do not even want to think what the rest of the roll did. I was so tempted to buy the next five since I had $100. But I am trying to learn to walk away. What yall think should have played out the roll. Sometimes I read about back to back winners????

                    I wouldnt have bought the rest. You got to your decent win and walked and that is good. Like I mentioned, the one guy got the pack and it stopped paying at ticket 015 and only paid slightly over half. I wouldnt have blamed you for buying the next one just in case but no way would I have gotten the rest of the book. The pack paid $145 with another $220 left on the roll. I saw James in Florida post something about only getting back less than $200 on a $600 roll. It's all a gamble and I guess the real answer would have been could you afford to lose another $220? If so then go for it. If not, then i think you walked at the right point. I have days where I will stop like you did cause I dont have the extra or other after winning football pools, I will spend alittle bit more figuring it is "found" money.

                      Another case in point about multiple hits. Took my $80 and saw MCE was on 001. I got 000 yesterday. Decided to buy the next 4. Ticket 003 had 10 matches @ $10 a piece. I still say there should be no value on a ticket less than ticket value. 2 hits shouldnt have $10 under each if it is a $20 ticket. I saw 4-20's on my number, 2-7's, 2-32's, so I knew I won before scratching the #'s. 1st one I scratched was #2 and saw it had $10 under it. i then knew the 8 matches I had were $10 a piece and I would have one other matching #. I won't complain about $100, but it should have been better,.

                      Also I know DR65 mentions alot about the symbols. Ticket 002/004 both had safe symbols for $20 a piece. Turning $80 into $140 is nice, but with the 10 hits and 2 symbols, it should have been more rewarding.

                        I agree with that omiller. A $20 should be much more when matching multiple spots. It's a pity and crying

                        shame they put $10 under 10 matching spots....$100 isn't bad at all but I know exactly what you mean.

                        WTG on your win though!

                              Did you see Lucky Hearts vs Solid Gold?? Lucky hearts has 10-50k, 10-10k, and 417-1k. Solid gold has 10-100k, 22-10k, and 921-1k winners. Why would anyone buy Lucky Hearts after looking at that? Both odds are 1 in 4:37, well Solid Gold is 4:38. Thats a big difference. I wonder why...
