I've been on a bit of a cold streak lately as well.  I've tried my share of the $5 version and can not hit ANYTHING not even a darn TICKET What?

I'll prob stick to the $10 and $2 versions, hoping that just maybe I uncover a good win.

 

Also I never usually play the $1M fortune but bought one to try it out and noticed how difficult it was to scratch, or maybe it was just me? Skeptical

    In general, all the LFL games have poorer return than other games of the same denomination. The $5 LFL has the biggest penalty of them all. I'm really only playing more of these now than other games because of the promotion. Once it ends this week, I'll scale back on LFL and play other games instead. They have a new Ruby Red 7's $77,777 game coming out soon.

    But yeah, one good thing about LFL games is the scratch coating is very easy to scratch. I use a Sac. Golden dollar to scratch those. I can reveal a whole row of numbers with one single swipe and the stuff peels off in one clean little piece.

    With the $1MFortune and most other scratch games, the scratch coating is more "dry" and have to use reeded edge coin like SBA dollar, and scratch many times to reveal the numbers, creating big mess of scratch dust.(which is irritating 'cause it makes me sneeze...)

        Hi Jon, I noticed the same top prize addition on the $1 LFL game.  Thanks for confirming my suspicion!

        I have been on a cold streak as of late on the $10 LFL and the 1M Fortune.  LFL has awarded me a $10 moneybag but that's about it.  Hopefully next week is better!  I wish I could get more of the $10 LFL and 1M Fortune, as I too think its overdue for the top prize (unless someone is holding onto a win).

          Still no big wins, but some better results on $10 games:

          $50, 0 on $10LFL: single money bag $50

          $100, 0 on $1MFortune: 15 of 20 matches, mix of $5 and $10, weird...

          Overall up about a hundo on the day along with some other small wins.

              Bought 1x million dollar fortune - Lost

              3x LFL $5 from various machines- saw a 10x symbol got excited until it revealed a $1 symbol under it Roll Eyes

              decided to buy one more $5LFL and ended up getting a TICKET, i figured i'd go back to try one more because the next few

              were low ticket numbers and they were was almost out. I then noticed a worker at the store buyout the rest of the tickets, never seen that before What?

                I usually avoid playing at stores where the clerk is playing.

                The reality is that Scratch games are a competitive game with other players at the same store, and if the clerk is playing against you, he has an unfair advantage. He can know by watching the ticket redemptions when to buy and when not to buy, putting you at a relative disadvantage.

                If I do play at a "hostile" store, I will grab a bunch like 4 to 8 tickets and then leave.(odds or twice odds to offset win chasers) That way they never know what I walked away with, so that interferes with their redemption count on the roll. Sometimes they or the other customer ticket hawks get pissed off when i do that, but hey, this is a money game bro.

                  Funny thing happened today, I bought 1x $5 LFL, 1x $10 FLL and a 10$ million fortune. Each and every ticket won but was the

                  face value of each card. so i got my $25 right back, well its better than losing! LOL and I left the " hostile" store haha I think

                  im going to be using these vending machines a little more often.

                    I stop playing $1, $5 and $10 LFL for now since top prizes have recently been claimed. They are not going to sell another ticket with top prizes for now otherwise they are going to lost money. I may stick to $2 LFL until the top prize is claimed. Nobody claim the top prize for $2 LFL yet.

Nobody claim the top prize for $2 LFL yet.

                      Same here. I was only playing heavy on the LFL games because it was new and they also had the bonus draw promotion. Now that the bonus draw entry period is over, and the initial top prizes have been claimed,(except $2LFL) I'll pull back and maybe only play a few here or there. LFL are poor return games to play on a normal basis, so if you were to load up on them, early in the game's life is better.

                      So I bought a couple of $5 Black Pearls instead, haven't played it in months and didn't play much of it to begin with, and I got this win:

                      BlackPearls

                      Got four matches of $25 plus a 20x $5, for a nice $200 win! That puts me ahead net positive on this game, which is always nice to *beat* the lottery, if only on a tiny battle and not the war...yet.

                      Guess it was just the right time to switch off LFL! Also, was a bit peeved that they did the news item of the first $6.5M win on $10 LFL on 3/8, which means the claim was probably a few days before, but the website still shows 0 of 10 top prizes claimed as of today 3/12. The nerve...

                          The $10 LFL winner story is somewhat hidden in the press release

                          but the prize remaining table is still not updated. I don't know why.

                          As far as we know, the $2 LFL has not been claimed. But it is possible that the ticket has been bought but for some reason, the buyer still hold on to it.

                              nice wins Jon & Yort!

                               

                              Picked up 1 $10 LFL, won a ticket.

                              Picked up 3 Tripling Crosswords, 0 x 3.  Tickets 51 - 53.

                               

                              What games are you playing?  I am still going to play $10 LFL until I see that it is picked; but like doing the crosswords.  gold bar bingo has a high number of high value prizes available.
