Bought in Reedley by a clerk that works at the store.

Small city in the Fresno County, so its possible a winner can be anywhere.

That clerk will probably not be working at the store any longer LOL

    My first crack at Million $$ Match did not turn out so good

    Ten tickets from #6 - 15

    7. $30

    10. $25

    11. $20 break even

      Buying $200 worth of that awful 5MJP ticket would have probably yielded two $20 winners and a ticket or one $25 and a ticket. Maybe a $50. The lower tier prizes on this game make it a much better choice, but it can still be pretty volatile, as you showed. 37.5% return? Yikes.

        It's so hard to not wonder why these areas in the middle of nowhere or the poorest areas always seem to have the winners and they come from dumpy little stores?

        I honestly have a hard time not believing that the balance is tilted to seed areas of low income with winning tickets because it makes the system look good and provides feel good stories.  In reality, who is going to be happy reading a story where the million dollar winner came from a Vons Pavilions in Newport Beach, CA and the winner is a lawyer or doctor.  That's why I never buy in affluent areas.  It just seems like it will never happen there.

          I got $30 on the new $5 Bingo. It was strangely satisfying since I got to play for a long time and this was a $6 line with a 5X multiplier.

            That's been a good one for me, too; picked up two of them at a Mobil and got a $6 line and $25 for four corners. 

            I noticed the new $5 pink Crossword has been selling pretty slowly; are they just not available or are people sick of the same freaking ticket released every four months?

              Around here everyone is still stocking the blues. I wanted to get a new one -- I play every type of scratcher until I get a loser, gotta see if they're lucky right? -- but no one had any. I saw a vending machine with the new label, and right before I walked up an employee stocked it with the blues! Dunno if I should be mad about the misrepresentation or consider myself lucky I noticed.

                Another Crossword Bonus winner

                Lottery officials say a winning $750,000 scratch-off ticket was purchased at a store in Santa Cruz.

                    Finally won something worthwhile on a $10 Bonus Crossword scratcher. A $60 winner on Monday so now my win percentage is about 30 percent.

                      Played 2 more of the Million $$ Match tickets #1 #2 and lost both.

                      Bad start to this and bad start to Wheel of Fortune.

                        Played $200 worth of the new ones.  Piece of garbage with a return of a ticket and $40.

                              Bought a California Gold and California Black on Saturday. Gold was a dud, but the Black was a $100 winner. The Gold and Black are my two favorites but hard to find in my town.
