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...

Im willing to bet the big difference in prize values is because lucky hearts
is a seasonal game and if you look on the website fewer of those tickets were
printed as well. Solid gold doesnt really have any holiday theme like Valentines day.
Thats my guess.

    Ready for a PA surprise?? Decided on a roll and got back $150. So predictable. I was going to get Solid Gold yesterday but he didnt have any. He showed me what he had and he had 5 rolls of 20X. Decided to go with the roll with the highest batch #. 2 tickets with 5X symbols. Both had $5 under it, but the one had 5 other $5 matches.Another ticket for $20 That was it. Everything else were basic duds and the typical 10 in a row stretch of losers. Guess I went off gut instinct. however a friends dad got a 20X today with $20 under it. Not sure where he bought it, but it most likely was Pottstown.  If I got that ticket in a roll, the rest of the roll would hit for negative $250 :)

      Turned out to be $160 . Decided to buy 16 Pure Golds 030-045. Turns out this is the roll I hit $100 on back on 004. 7 out of 16 were winners but only totalled $90. Not sure if I should get the next 9 or not. Figure once I play this money out, I am done for awhile.

        PA has gone way overboard now with the streaks. 14 losers in a row on a $20 ticket were reported? I would have sent the Lottery a letter and never bought another ticket if I saw that. It's so slanted that I'm not playing much at all.

        The new tickets haven't been much better than the holiday tickets:

        Cash Crop - got a $10 on #226 and two $4 wins today

        Spicy Hot 6s - $10 is my max so far

        Solid Gold - one of those games I just can't win on, and there have been many of those lately. 1/6 or 7 for $5 so far

        Lucky Hearts - best was $20 on $016 after $5 on #015. The other few have lost.

        Winner Take All Millionaire - only bought one and it lost. But am buying 12 in a row from somewhere next week - my one big play. Hope it works out - in PA, they could easily all lose!

          Its crazy but a guy i work with bought $20 worth of cash crop just
          for laughs and he won on 11 tickets in a row. Yes you read that right
          11 in a row. He had 5 free tickets in a row starting at #059 going all the way to #069
          Finishing only with $24 but I couldnt believe there were that many wins
          In a row of any kind. Never would have believed it if I hadnt watch him scratch them on
          his lunch break. Too bad they still suck lol.

            My few Solid Golds have been decent. Twice I got the last 6 or 7 from a roll and 3 or 4 would hit. Nothing major and would break even, but the end of the roll seemed decent. Havent played much of the other new tickets. Yes the last 14 of a pack lost. I would have been pissed too. It was a 50% return, so I guess that is normal for PA. My new semi philosophy is if I win on a ticket, I will buy the next one. I have seen a few back to back to back hits. if I lose I am done cause I have seen way too many double digit losers in a row. Figure I will chase losers vs chase winners for a change

            Chris. too funny about the 11 in a row. Of course the profit sucked, but weird to win so many. Thats how Pure Gold felt last night. I couldnt believe all the winners I was getting and even a 3 in a row streak, but they were all 10's and $20 winners.

            I have to goto Hershey again in a few weeks. If the weather is decent, I might hit up the casino since I will be 5-10minutes away if not, i think I will wait til then to pick up a few tickets in that area.

              I'm now 1/7 on Solid Gold. Another loser yesterday on #020. Meanwhile, both Lucky Hearts (#051, #052) at the gas station won, for $5 and $10. As usual, I gawked at the winners the gas station had hanging up. $600 Spicy Hot 6s (a game that loses far more than Cash Crop for me), and a $500 Winner Take All. I decided to try my spree there, but I can't get all those $20 tickets after all. I'll try about $125. Haven't decided the mix of tickets I'll buy, but I'll report back later in the week.

                        I won $90 on the new $3 money vault game!
                        I know its new and when games first come out they put alot of winners in
                        To beef up the results to increase interest. But out of the 8 tickets I bought from
                        different places 5 were winners and not just my money back, im sticking with this game
                        For a little..

                          I have had completely different results with that game. Out of 11 total tickets, I have had one winner of $5.

                            seen the $2 one stocked yet but they have so many out there, must be a retailer stocking nightmare.

                            I don't like the Shamrock game....a big leaf and there's 12 numbers within it....I scratched off the first one

                            and the way the numbers are positioned, couldn't find more than 11 of them...you have to scratch all the

                            way over to the left. Wonder how many people will miss that one and toss it. (might not matter though,

                            I didn't win sqaut on it yet lol)
