Thanks CAScratcher20. Yeah, its been a while. I've been staying away and struggling with quitting. I even gave my debit card to my girlfriend to hold so I don't have cash on me. But every now and then, I will run into a few bucks and play.

Well done, CatScratch. Did you buy it in San Gabriel, perchance? I lived there for ten years...would love to see the lucky store.

      Thanks ChaCha. I actually bought it when I was visiting my mom in El Monte. Liquor store on the corner of lower Azusa and El Monte ave.

        I commend everyone who is trying to quit playing. It's a hard thing to do. Bad habits are hard to break.

          Played another 4 $10 WoF off of the same store, figuring that the third time is the charm... Nope, all losers again. Ridiculous #23-26.

          Odds of going 0 for 12 in a game with 1 in 3.50 overall odds of winning any prize.

          e^-(12 / 3.5) = 0.0324

          3.24% chance of it happening and it did.

            I Agree! all the WOF losers are ridiculous.

             

            Sorry we won't play anymore

              Tried another 4 (#30 - 33) for the heck of it. Slightly better result this time.

              #31 - $15

              #33 - $20

              But the 2 losers were for 20 and 10 entries to the draw

                Yeah, my last three WoFs were losers. Never got more than 10 entries, even on the $10 tickets.

                Back to LL for me.

                  At least with the for LL tickets you are a ticket and or some money back.

                  Anyone have an idea of which game will be ended next? A clerk was saying sales of CA Black are slow. We know the new $20 game is coming out.

                   

                  Hope everyone is having a nice 4th of July weekend

                    I think 836, pink Tripling Crossword and 863, Big 6 Bingo will likely end in that batch.  It looks the 1109, Electric 8's are doing well.  They might re-order again or maybe end it to refresh the $1 portfolio.  Maybe, 1110, Money Roll might go.  Not sure what they'll do with CA Black at that point.

                    One thing for sure, it'll be a let down as far as 2nd chances prizes go compared to its previous batch.

                      Summary of the July RPP:

                      Pull California Gold, Silver 7's, and Spicy Cash for retailers with bigger bins.
                      California Black and Big 6 Bingo get pulled from retailers with less space.

                      New $20 game, new (yellow) Tripling Crossword, new Bingo 10x (top prize $75,000, same as Big 6 Bingo), new 24 Karat Cash (it says top prize $20,000, so I guess a $2 game?). These games start July 23rd.

                      And the PB/SLP combo key, buy two PB QPs and one SLP QP, get one SLP QP free. Starting tomorrow.

                          Yes the second chance prize will be $1,000,000.00 (one million dollars) even if the game is ended early.

                          The second chance for the $20.00 ticket should be interesting (5 million dollars)

                              I was wondering why we haven't had any LL top prize winners. It's the like the game has gone cold.
