      You're not tha only one in that boat. Unfortunately, I had a lil' bit of that today, but only with a worse feeling than you!

       

      I'm currently in Northeast PA, doing an independent study for college, doing with tha lottery, and I was aiming to get a big winner. Not knowing what to expect, I went to a mart that had two new books of a $20 ticket I wanted. Thinking there were 60 tickets in tha book, there were 30, so I began experimentin'. Turns out, I bought most of tha book ($20 Casino Cash); here's tha results:

       

      029: Loser

      028: Loser

      027: Loser

      002: Loser

      001: Loser

      000: $20.00

       

      As you can see, my biggest winner was only $50.00 ($50.00 for a "mild" winner?); I know tha big winner in this book was #013. Feels like tha worst feelin' in tha world... Bash

        I see it paid $250. I wouldnt be shocked if you only missed a $50 winner.. Maybe $100.. Most $20 rolls pay about $300 in PA. Mine was $285, so you might have only missed a $25/$30 winner. I wouldnt stress too much about it. I wouldnt be shocked if the store owner bought it though knowing you lost 8 in a row. I heard a story where a $20 roll paid back $320 in the first 15 tickets and the last 15 lost, so don't beat yourself up too bad about it . I would have worried if your 29 tickets only paid back $130 or so.

          Last week, I bought 10 $2 tickets from the same roll for $20. I won $34 and a free ticket. Not too shabby I say.

                How many ticket does a roll have?

                Manali, the roll has all the tickets. HA! Ok, that was my humor for the day... the real answer is: it depends. Here in Florida, some $20 games have 30 tickets per roll, for a total cost of $600.  Other $20 games have 50 tickets per roll, totaling $1,000....  I believe that all the $10 games have 60 tickets= $600 for the entire roll. I can't speak for the $5 games. But I know that the minumum for a $20 game is a $600 roll.  I personally LOVE buying whole rolls--although I've only bought ONE roll in the past 10 years-- a roll of Billion Dollar Blockbuster last year that kicked my A**....lost over half my money. Sometimes people get a HOT roll, though.........

                  I have never bought a whole roll but once I when on a ticket of 20 or more i move to another ticket. I usually watch people in the store buying tickets and if they buy say 5 in a row and look at them in the store and they dont win then I start buying that same ticket.

                    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.

                    Do they allow you to buy a whole roll?  I never have hear that before.  Please let us know how it work out.

                      I tend to agree with you for two reasons. One, buying an entire roll, to me, is very similar to buying a ton of Mega Millions/Power Ball tickets. It just doesn't make financial sense, nor does it increase your overall odds of winning. Two, it's almost like greed and just trying too hard to win the big money. Like you, I've heard many stories of success by going from store to store purchasing different tickets.

                      During my last ticket venture, I did the same thing...and found $100. Very good strategy because every store and ticket roll is a completely different ball game.

                      L.L.

                          How is buying rolls of tickets almost like greedWhat? No one here is stealing the tickets, they're

                          purchasing them with their own money and makes financial sense to those who can afford it and are winning.

                          And as far as "trying to hard to win" DUH!!! lol

                          What's wrong with trying to win? What's wrong with trying hard to win? I don't see a problem here!

                           

                          There is nothing similar in buying  rolls of scratch offs to buying a ton of MegaMillions and PowerBall.

                          Show me a scratch off with 1 and 175million chance to win LOL!!

                            I Agree!...Anyway check the THREAD TITLE...I almost felt like I was being condemned for buying a roll of lottery tickets..but wait..LL...dude it's cool state your opinion..but maybe it wouldve been appreciated on an anti-gambling website...if one choose to buy 12 rolls a week its he or she business..."greed" no...it's fun, entertaining, and hey you may win big or small...that's the risk of gambling...if I buy a thousand quick picks for the powerball tomorrow night and I win $90 million...yippy for me...anyway I'm sure you know your "greed" comment was a little offensive yet an assumptive one..so all is well...im curious...how many tickets should I purchase in order for you not to consider me as an over indulgent greedy big win chaser...lol...just curious...I know I know..this is a thread to post ONES EXPERIENCES BUYING A ROLL OF SCRATCH OFFS...but since I seem to have been the last greedy person to buy a roll..lol...I would like for LL to answer that question..

                            Happy big win scratching to all...Im thinking about purchasing a roll of $200 millionaire spectacular, Florida Black, and I'm trying to decide if I am going to purchase a roll of Jubilee, GRT or 3million dollar monopoly...any suggestions let me know please..I plan to leave the Orlando area tomorrow for the purpose of hunting down a big win...not sure of my direction of travel yet...I may hit up the Rock in Tampa...i hate the casino..too much smoke!!!RantNo Pity!Thinking of...Thumbs Down

                              Anyone want to share their experience of buying whole rolls in Georgia or preferences on which tickets to buy whole rolls? The main tickets I buy whole rolls of are the $20 tickets that have second chance drawings; the best I have did so far is $695 on Maximum Green, so a profit of $395. And the worst being $110 for a loss of $190.
