    I drove around to 20 stores today looking for old FMC books. NO store had them! I guess its gone from around here.

    I did find 1 Winter Bucks and a Color of Money. both were new rolls at 057. Is it worth picking them up ???

    2014 Highest Winner: $500

        James, aren't you after a Top Prize? Or are you trying to get a $5k-$20K?

         

        In my opinion, not worth getting a book where there is 0 chance of hitting a Top Prize

          I do well on the old games lots of small prizes still floating around. FMC still has $1 mil and there are only limited rolls left out there

            Very true on the FMC. I did find 2 places that have them. Both are mom-n-pops gas stations/stores. They have had them the last few times I stopped by too. Im wondering if they have several books that they held on to. I still play that game when i can find them.

             

            I never did good on the Holiday scratchers though, like the ones you mentioned above

              Hey Rizzy - as of today it looks there's about 10 current/active scratch off games with ZERO top prizes. Since we don't know how many lower tier prizes there are on these I would NEVER buy one ticket on these games. There might only be several $10 or $20 prizes left. That's why I encouraged you to start a forum asking players to write the Fl Lottery (floridalottery.com) - asking/demanding they post a grid showing lower tier prizes remaining on ALL current games. Otherwise we're buying tickets self guessing what $1K, $5k etc are left on a a game. Many other states have these grids why not Florida. ?

              Take the example where James mentions looking for FMC tickets/books - there might be ONE FMC top win left - without a grid showing lower prizes there could be only a few $100's or worse left ??? IF he does find a book or two - his chances of winning the top prize first of all is horrendous - plus there may only be as mentioned- a couple $100's left. IMO we are all wasting a lot of money buying tickets without knowing what's left to win BESIDES top prizes as shown on the site. Let's get Fl to post that grid !!!!

              What's your take ?

                Hey Skeptic

                 

                I emailed the FL Lottery to ask about the lower tier prizes remaining, but they have yet to respond. Hopefully they come back with a positive note but who knows.

                 

                Another thing I'd like the FL Lottery to have is self checkers for scratch offs. I know many other states have this option, as the tickets have a barcode under the latex. This is probably something the FL Lottery cant do right away because they would have to work out getting future tickets to include the bar code, but it would be nice to be able to self check scratchers.

                  That would be the end of codes then and the end of finding a discarded winner now and then. But the benefits are greater regardless. How about for starters have definite codes for $1K (TOU) $5K (FOU) and $1 mil (MIL) and have them all in the sides or bottom of the ticket. I hate standing in line having tickets double checked. It would be easier if losing codes meant LOSING tickets and not also mean winners 0.0001% of the time. What a scam and you better bet they know it....

                    Hey Rizzy - did you get an answer yet from your email about the lower tier grid? I can't wait to hear their lame response !!

                    I think a letter to the person who runs the lottery would be more effective than using that 'contact us' email address.
