There are guarantee prize in each roll. So chances are we don't loose everything only some of the money if the roll does not have enough winning amount. Anyone have experience in buying the entire roll? This refer to $5,$10,$20 games.

If so, how often do you profit and how often do you loose?

I'm thinking of picking up a $5 roll tomorrow. The most I'll loose is $150.

    i buy $20 packs here in VA every once in a while when i go out on a limb... I have not won anything big but you are pretty much guaranteed to lose no more than half your money on the $20 packs/rolls

      Well I have bought a ton of rolls

      and they were all ten dollar tickets

      except one. The standard used to be

      half your money back. It does vary by the

      game though. The books are $300.00 here

      in SC. I usually averaged half back for $150.00.

      I quit buying books after the last roll i bought

      only brought back $100.00. I did get a roll of holiday tickets

      about 3 years ago and I got back $1430.00. That was nice.....

      <snip> I need to go get a roll. Smile

        How many tickets are in a roll?

        You mean the WHOLE roll that's in the container they pull the tickets from?

            In Georgia and SC they are all 300 for a roll no matter what

            the per ticket price is. So like 30 $10 tickets in a roll. In Georgia they have $20

            tickets but they are only 15 tickets in a roll.( So every roll in Georgia is $300)  In NC they also have $20 tickets

            but a roll in NC for the 20s is $600. The other rolls in NC are $300. You should ask James1

            about the rolls in Florida because I am unsure about them and don't want to misspeak. Oh and

            yes we are referring to the whole pack. James could you clear up the price for the rolls in Florida please?

              When the new $20 Billon Dollar Blockbuster came out in FL a few years ago i bought like 5 or 6 rolls all from different stores.  Lost half of my money.

                Miracle.....ouch. Sucks. HAS ALSO HAPPENED TO ME!!!!

                 

                I bought a roll of Billion Dollar Blockbuster last year ($1,000) and only got back $595

                Losing $405 bucks in one sitting was NOT fun. I actually would love to buy whole rolls if I could do so regularly. That was the first roll I had bought in ten years!!! Sometimes you get a HOT roll. Sometimes you get a COLD roll.

                 

                I can only speak to the $20 games, but in Florida:

                Billion Dollar Blockbuster, 50 tickets at $20 each, Entire roll costs $1,000

                Monopoly, 50 tickets at $20 each, Entire roll costs $1,000

                Lucky For Life, 50 tickets at $20 each, Entire roll costs $1,000

                Gold Rush Tripler, 30 tickets at 20 each, Entire roll costs $600

                Florida Millionaires Club, 30 tickets at 20 each, Entire roll costs $600  (Game soon ending, though you can still find it.)

                $3,000,000 Jubilee, 30 tickets at 20 each, Entire roll costs $600 

                 

                From what we see on here, sometimes a roll is FULL of winners!!!! Sometimes it's a DUD!!!!!

                BUT we know one thing--- You can't win unless you PLAY!!!

                GOOD LUCK!!!!!

                  The $5 game here in Texas has 75 tickets on a roll. The roll should be unopen and not from the container. The store usually have a few hand full of rolls stocked away and one roll available in the container for individual ticket sale.

                   

                  -

                  Ah, seem like there are more losing rolls than winning. I think it is best to buy individual tickest but at different store for better odds. Recently, I started with a $5 ticket and won $140. It was a slow accumulation of prizes, had to cash in the $5 winning ticket and buy another $5, won some more and bought a few more $5 and so on until I hit $140 and after that I started loosing so I decided to stop and walk away. Each time I cash in the ticket I buy another at a diferent store. Won 6 time consecutively before a bust. Just had to see how far my luck was that week.

                    in the scratch off section of L.P.

                     

                    You guys are really hard core scratchers!! This is the first time I ever heard of anyone purchasing

                    whole rolls of tickets, I have seen dudes on the news steal a whole roll.

                     

                    Silly quesiton but what's the fastest way to scratch, you use a quarter? lol

                      When you go to different stores and purchase a ticket is it the same game or a different ticket?

                          Id avoid the $10 LFL most $10k prizes are gone and only 1 top prize left and nearly every store here has rolls. They are trying to capitalize with lots of losing tickets being sent out. You should of went with Casino Action or $200 M Spectacular Or a $20 roll

                          2014 Highest Winner: $500

                              The most I have won out of a $300 roll is $240, and the least is $120. Here in GA, I thought the minimum was supposed to be $135, but I must be wrong. I need to write to GLC for clarification.
