I've won $40 twice on a $2 LFL. I bought about 25 total.

 

No luck with the $10 or $5 ones. Just minimal returns.

Wow, thats REALLY good, congrats!

You hit two 1-in-272 prizes after only 25 tickets, then you are WAY ahead of the game. That's like a $100 win on a $5 game.

Most I won on the $2 LFL is stinkin' $5...after almost as many...

    Nice work!

    I've been doing LFL and 1M Fortune, usually hitting a few retailers at a time and buying one of each.

    I see the website now is advertising 1M Fortune more prominently - I've had some really fantastic returns on that game the past few weeks!

    One thing I have noticed on my losing LFL tix - 3 top prizes @ $5000/WK/25YEAR on two tickets.  Anyone else seeing this?  It's a small sample size, but if it's happening to a lot us, then it may be a trend.

    I am not sure what you mean in your statement about a trend in losing LFL tix. Can you elaborate?

      Thanks. The 25 were not all from one roll. Just five a piece from different retailers. Either way I know I was really lucky because I've been buying lots more $2 tix and winning nothing.

      Now that the initial excitement of the new game is over with I may go back to my old favorites.

        Looks like the "Lucky" wins are catchy like the flu. I just cashed this winner on $5 LFL, I'm up five hundy on this game!

        LFL500

        This is a 1-in-12,000 odds prize, which would have been like a $1000 winner on a regular $5 game, but oh well, I'll take the $500 hit! I take back all the bad things I said about this game.

          **only in regards to the $10 game**

          I scratched two tickets in a row (different rolls) that had three different prizes of $5000 WEEK/25 YEAR - but they were not matching numbers.  I was wondering if anyone else was seeing the same thing on there losing tickets.

          But then I had a losing ticket today that's top scratched prize, if matched, was $2000.  Dispels my speculation of a trend.

              in the scratcher "Lucky for life" it says you can choose annuity payment or one lumpsum, but why is the lumpsum half of what you would get if you choose annunity?

                  Great find Jon.

                  Thanks, yeah that was a lucky hit, got it after only about 30 tickets total. Only 1 in 10 stores will see one of those $500 prizes.

                  But looks like someone just claimed the $3.25M top prize on the game, right around the 90% sold mark on schedule for this game.

                      Does that sway you to play the $10 game, mnsweeps? Jon D?

                      I like that game more anyway, if you get that LIFE.... :)

                           bought myself a couple $10 dollar LFL and hit $50 on both. Banana Haven't really played the other versions, should give those a try as well.

                            Yeah, seems to be more sequential hits on LFL.

                            Got couple $10 LFL from a couple stores, sequential wins both:

                            $10 LFL: $30, $10

                            $5 LFL: Ticket, $10, 0

                            and another store:

                            $10 LFL: $15, Ticket

                            $2 LFL: 0, 0, $40, 0, 0 (finally got the $40 after about 80 tickets total...)

                              So the $1 and $5 LFL have already hit a few of the big top prizes. But the $2 and $10 LFL have not, and are *overdue* for their first top prize. Probably will hit any day now, unless someone is holding onto a win.

                              I went looking for some $2 and $10 LFL winners and struck out badly. Two different stores: 2x $10 LFL and 5x $2 LFL ... ALL lost! WTH? The day would have been a complete loss except for a $100 win at another store on $1MFortune.(10x $10) That game is also "hot" and overdue a few times over on top prizes.

                              I'm avoiding the $1 LFL now since it is *overpaid* having doled out 3 of 4 Top prizes very early due to hot selling, so they then did a re-order of 2 more top prizes for total of 6 now. But they are still undersold on the game since those 3 top prizes got found so quickly.
