I am in Georgia, and so GA games will mean the most to me, but I value everyone's opinion. What I am looking for are winners that have won at least $500, but preferably $1,000 or more, and better yet those that have won multiple times. I have spent at least $15,000 on the lottery over the last two years, and most of it has been on scratch-offs. My biggest wins are 1x300, 1x250, 1x150, and countless $100 and lesser amounts. I used to closely track my winners in an Excel Spreadsheet, but that got tiresome, but I am thinking of doing it again. I had a sheet for each ticket, and I had the store, the roll number, the ticket number, the entire validation number, the three digit validation number that is in the box, the price I paid for the ticket, minus the winnings or losses, so I could track which ticket won the most, and tried to look for patterns. I ran it like a business with loss and profit reports. Holiday Gifts, a $5 2010 Holiday season ticket is one that I bought about 150, so I got a good feel for it. I learned, for example, that I won twice as often on the same ticket from one store to the other.

I am just having very bad luck right now, so I should lay off for a while, but I can't. Is there any secret? What am I doing wrong? I know no one wants to give out their secrets, but I have contributed a lot to this site, even though I haven't been very active recently. I am looking for pointers if you will. I am flat out looking for a lottery partner. If you know where a $100,000 ticket is, and you work for the lottery, then obviously you can't buy it, or at least turn it in. Maybe you have a big ticket, but are behind on child support payments. I will cash your tickets for a percentage of the money. Can you trust me? Yes you can. I am honest. Just start with the smaller tickets if you want to test me. I will not cheat you. I have the extra money to buy 50 rolls of tickets if I wanted, but I am not that stupid.

I do not believe that it is all luck, especially when you have the same person with multiple big wins. If you search this site, you will find lottery retailers where the owner, his employees and family have cashed in over 1.5 Million dollars worth of tickets in a year. A coincidence? I seriously doubt it. There have been many retailers like that, and some folks that have more than fifty $5,000+ winners. Are these people just lucky? I doubt it. PM me if you don't want to go public. I will pay for tickets that are clearly winners, but which have not had the validation number revealed, or the bar-code on the front of the ticket scratched off, as long as I can verify the ticket, which means going to a lottery counter and having the clerk check the ticket, or going to one of those self checking machines. I am simply offering to buy tickets that you do not want. Nothing illegal about that. Am I looking to cheat the lottery? I am not planning on doing anything to them that they have not done to me.

      Brother, I wish I knew where those winners are in GA... And here in TN too. Any state really.

      I think you are on the rite track with keeping records. I know it's tiresome but maybe one day you will have an "aha!" moment that ties it all together.

      Have you tried doing a scatter gram of your geographical area to view where and when your and/or other big winners are? Might be able to see some patterns.

      Most I've won is $1000 about a year ago at a Publix. Some on this site have recommended buying from grocery stores or machines but I think crooked clerks/ "shadowers" can lurk anywhere.

      Keep at it and good luck. I will say I think GA has the best odds/prizes out of several surrounding states IMHO.

        This type of venture needs to be handled strictly on an individual basis...the individual being YOU.

        With thousands of scam artists out there, I think you've just made yourself vulnerable to the possibility

        of being contacted by people who care nothing about you and what you want.

        Instants..

        If you're looking for a grand prize remember this...there are millions of tickets printed for any one game.

        More of them if they extended the game. They supposedly increase the prizes with extensions but that

        doesn't mean you WILL find one then either.

        When you have a top prize count in a game with 6 - 7 million tickets of 3 - 5, your chances of finding one

        are very, very low. Visualize....6 million tickets - 3 top prizes...where IS it? WHO knows? That's one

        of the things I attribute to sheer luck...it's out there somewhere but doesn't mean it is anywhere near

        your area, in the front end or back end of the release or has/hasn't been won yet.

        What are you going to be happy with? Just a top prize? If so, plan on being unhappy. If you are going

        to be happy winning a decent amount to fund future purchases which is more realistic, plan on being

        happy more often.

        If you're not winning on instants, something has to change. Location, time of day, tickets amounts,

        amount spent, times per week, at what point in the pack you're buying from and how many you buy.

        1. Find a store where you do well often.

        2. Have a limit and stick to it...don't get suckered into buying more than 2 $20's, 2  $10's, 4 $5's, 5 - 10

        $2's or 20 $1's. If it's not your day, sometimes you can't make it your day. Buying more doesn't make

        sense sometimes.

        3. If you win, LEAVE with your money.

        4. Start keeping track again....especially of ticket numbers.

        5. Start paying attention to the numbers on the ticket...NOT serial numbers.....but the PLAY field numbers.

        There are things to look for...now, whether they change these things every so often is beyond me but it

        seems that they don't change it drastically so you can't get the hang of it.

        When you have YOUR PLAY FIELD NUMBERS being 7, 17, 37 (or any 3 matches for that matter 5, 15, 25 -

        8, 18, 38 - 2, 12, 22) and YOUR NUMBER is 27 (35 - 28 - 32 all the in-between numbers of the ones in

        parenthesis) buy the next one and if it does not win STOP. If you're numbers are all one off, STOP. If

        your numbers have no connection at all to the play field numbers, that's a good one to go with for the

        method of buying no more than 2 $20's....2 $10's....4 $5's....etc.

        The front few numbers of a pack and last few numbers of a pack seem to do good. Don't rule out

        first tickets or very last tickets....some people swear by those. Personally I would rather buy a ticket

        at number 008 up and 025 up to 029 (I've done well on those numbers in the past....$100's mainly but

        still that's $100 - nothing life changing, only mainly good for reinvestment purposes but still $100)

        6. If you get a winner of ticket cost and are within your budget and want to try the next same game, buy

        one more. There are times in certain games where there will be back to back winners...$20/$40, $20/$100,

        $20/$20...this usually works when you win the $20 first...and not the $100 first. I wouldn't buy another if

        I won the $100 first.

        7. You need to be the first hawk there, nothing like showing up after the machine has been drained.

        Keep an eye on who is out and when. Some of these hawks will strip a machine clean and leave you

        with junk. It's important to know when you're playing junk but most important to keep #2 in mind. UNLESS

        you win a good one, then you can reinvest in other kinds of tickets.

        8. I've seen it too many times.......don't buy multiple tickets out of a bin...by multiples I mean 10 and

        20 at a time. I think part of the reason the miserable hawks look miserable is they can't stop. They feed

        $200 in the machine in no time and win $20...lol, no wonder they're frustrated.

        9. Be realistic about how you play these things...if you want to win a top prize, by darned, don't buy

        all the tickets you can.....there's luck, some win/win methods and some win/lose methods, good days and

        bad too. If you are going to win a top prize, it's going to be out of the blue IMO, it's nothing you can MAKE

        happen.

        10. CHANGE your fist choice...or your top choice of tickets. Have a favorite? Go against it some days.

        Pick something ONE of what you normally wouldn't buy. One time I asked for a ticket and the guy gave

        me a different one..I kept it because he already tore it off and I thought, ok, no biggie. Well, it turned

        into a $500 winner and I would NOT have selected that one at all.

        11. Change the ticket denominations....$20 tickets can win you a million dollars but if you lose all

        your $20s in one day, how are you going to win anything? (this advice is only good for people who like

        to play and aren't..... Blue Thinking.....'actively' seeking to become an instant millionaire off 20 $20 tickets. I still

        say, if THAT'S going to happen, it'll happen on the first one or two out, otherwise it isn't meant to happen,

        at least on THAT day)

        12. Don't play at just one store, your local store might be the bum store where you don't win anything

        much, ever.

        I'm not an expert in anything - I don't work for the lottery - don't work for a retailer - don't have winners

        to 'sell' (I still am not quite sure of what you mean by that....if someone has a winner, aren't they going to

        keep it?) I'm just a player. With a lot of experience. I haven't won a million dollars...yet. The most I've

        won on instants is $5,000 on a first one out $20 ticket. I've won loads of $100's and down and enough

        $100's and up....$200's, $400's, $500's, $1,000's. I spend a lot of money but win a lot too. I'm not bragging

        - that's nothing to brag about...I'm just a player who thought you might like to read a players take on

        things. It's my opinion, but it works for me. I hope you'll shuffle up your game mode and try some new

        things.....sometimes slumps are self-inflicted...it's a stubborn side effect of some people fall into, they let

        too much emotion run their game. It's a game, play what you can afford but play smart. Think smart and

        start winning smart.

        One of the main reasons to change your choice of tickets is I believe they run in cycles....if you play $20

        tickets and they aren't doing squat for you...the $20 tickets might not be hot for your area at the moment.

        Believe it or not, the $2 ones might be at that time. Don't turn up your nose at a $2 ticket..some of those

        offer top prizes of $10,000 and there's plenty more than just 3 - 5 of them in a run of 6 - 7 million tickets.

        Good luck and win a good one!!!!

          In 2010 I won $1,000 twice, $500 7 times on Florida's Billion Dollar Blockbuster, won $500 10+ times on Gold Rush. 

          2011 came around, the Florida Lottery stopped playing fairly and flooded the state with more and more losing tickets so my scratcher purchases dropped drastically.  The highest I won all year was $100.  I lost a couple thousand on scratchers for the year. 

          2012 I am purchased 8 Gold Rush Triplers, all losers and 4 Billion Dollar Blockbuster and broke even.  Looks like another bad year for scratchers in Florida.

            I hit all my big winners in a span of a week or so. considering i play a lot and heavy and have not hit $500 since this raises eyebrows for me.  I believe the state circulated tons of hot rolls during April 2011 because every player on here had something good to post that time. Skeptic had that crazy run of infinite $500s and $1,000s the same month. I hit $4,000 - $1,000 3 times and $500 3 times plus tons of $200s and $100s in 1 week. anything i bought hit big. then as quick as it started it stopped and its nothing but losses ever since.
