Went on a little run with the Lucky Times 20 ticket 20 dollar ticket here in RI.

I was researching and found out that one store here in my area was the top retailer for the lottery and had so many winners in the store it was ridiculous. So I figured I would try my luck there.

Went in and bought the lucky times 20 ticket since there are still 47 top prizes left of 20 grand. I bought about 15 tickets and won a little here and there 20, 25, 50 and finally hit one for 200 dollars. It was the first 200 ticket I have seen in this game and I have scratched over 200 tickets. Took that 200 and started a new book. Bought the whole roll 1 by one and grabbed another 200 dollar ticket but the book still beat me for 150. I won 450 back from that book. I am thinking that this store sells alot of these tickets so the newer books that are brought there have more big winners in them. My two regular stores I have never seen a ticket more than 100 dollars. Like an idiot, I went back to my regular store and bought a lucky times 20 on ticket 020. Won 100 dollars from it. Got carried away and thought maybe this was a hot book. Boy was I wrong. I bought the rest of the roll from 019-000 and got back 20,25,25,50. 4 tickets out of 20 winners. Got murdered on these 20 tickets. spent 400 and got back 120. So my thinking is I will never buy another lucky times 20 ticket unless its from that store that is the top retailer. The problem is that I always have to buy like 10-15 tickets just to grab the 100 or 200. Cant catch it first. The roll has 30 tickets in them and the most I have seen is 8 winning tickets out of the 30. That sucks... I am destined to find a 20k prize since my odds are good but having no luck. odds are like 1 in 6000 to win 20k. no such luck for me.

    I'm always amazed when i read winner stories. You can buy a 1000 tickets and its always 1 or 2 tickets that someone purchases and hits.

      I tthink it is because us that go crazy buying tickets clear out all the losers! Lol! I have had a few $50 & $100I winners and each time I have bought only 1or 2 tickets. If I buy a bunch they are losers, free ticket or $5 or less.

        I am so sick of buying lots of tickets to win nothing. I am really sick of the 20 dollar ticket lucky times 20 because I cannot find a decent winner when there are alot of prizes out there. I called the lottery to get all the stats about the ticket. They printed 306,390 tickets. 53 tickets have 20 thousand (top prize). 30 have 1000 dollars. Then you have 500, 200, 100, 50, 25, 20. 

        They said they sold about 20 percent of tickets so far. 47 top prizes remain and 25 1000 tickets remain. I have bought over 200 tickets and the most I have won was 200 dollars twice. And it took me lots of tickets to get there. The roll has 30 tickets and each roll has no more than 9 winning tickets. Many times 100 dollars is the biggest ticket in roll, once in a while its 200 dollars. But there are so many losers in a row that you cant make money or get even. Today the clerk opened new book. First 4 tickets were duds. Next ticket was 50 dollars. I quit there.

          I feel like I me helping winners win. I only play $10 games now and before I play a $2 dollar games I spent 20 on 10 tickets all losers. I starting to get the same back luck with the $10 games spent $50 for 5 all being losers. Its killing me. I hope my luck turns around. Haven't won a hundred in weeks.
