Are you having more luck getting your tickets from sales clerk or the ticket machines?

I have won more from the machines but i would only say that beacuse i tend to buy more from them the i do from a clerk. that being said my $1,000 winner was from a clerk. one thing i suggest on these $20 tickets is to play more than one. i usually start with one and play from the smae book till i win somthing.  I don't think i have played thru more than once thru five tickets without altelast there being a twenty dollar winner. Good Luck to you.

    side note: i happened to by buying my tickets today and there were some il. lottery employees in the store. and they were talking to the owner saying the next batch of twenty dollar ticket books that come out (30 tickets per book/ $600 a book) would have $300 worth of winning tickets per book which is more than they usually do. I don't know exacly if i can do anything with that information but i found it interesting. any thoughts?

      That sounds pretty good. In Texas, a roll of scratchers used to have a guarantee of about 50% of the cost of the roll. Now they rarely have a guarantee of half. I had considered buying a roll but since they cut the prize guarantee I just stick to the draw games.

          What numbers do you win on the most I am always curious so I might know what number range to play in although I am from Ohio but I like to know the numbers won on also.  Thank you.

            the twenty dollar books here have only 30 tickets and i have won on various ticket numbers. i see people at my local store asking what number the tickets are on but in my opinion i don't think that certain ticket numbers are better than others. i would rather see someone play a few tickets in a row, more like ten on a dollar book and like three on a twnety dollar book. i think that give you a better chance of coming across a winner though the amount might not be as much as you like. but you never know you might stumble accross the big one. Good Luck to you.

                Congratulations Eddie! Nice win. I thought that I was doing well when I won $100 on the gold bullion today! Happy to see someone win. If you don't mind me asking, where did you buy your ticket?

                            went out to get my morning tickets and caught a $100 winner on a $20 cash bonanza ticket and another $100 winner on a $5 birthday suprise ticket. I usually like try to bring my tickets home and take the picture for LP and cash them the next time i go back to the store but sometimes i just can't wait and cash um on the spot.Wink
