The 5/5 PB finally got claimed this past weekend, though it is a surprise there were no 4/5+PB winners (those odds are way smaller). also its JP prize amount got reset due to a winner in Colorado.

Now PB can go away for a long time, probably will not see the light compared to Mega Millions.

Time to focus on scratchers.

        First sign I have a losing scratcher is when I uncover the number 14. The number 14 on a scratcher is the Kiss of Death.

            LOL...absolutely agree. I have never had a winner ticket with a 14 on it.

              I think usually $2 tickets have winning tickets with a matching number 14 on it, but I never paid attention to this.

              I will see for the $10 or $20 games, will play a few a week from this point on.

                Three friends and I are pooling $100 each tonight for our annual $20 ticket extravaganza. Will be buying $400 worth of the Million Match in hopes of getting something nice. Will keep you informed of the results.

                    Best of luck to you and I hope you all win the big one, but realistically, I see nothing more than maybe a single $100 win, and a $50 and $30 win sprinkled in there. With a few break-evens.

                      Yeah I'm realistically not expecting much. Just a bit of fun we have once a year. Last year we got back approximately $700 on our $400 investment (there was a $500 Fast Spot). But I did once buy 14 of the $20 blue tickets and got back only a free ticket so I am well aware of how bad it can get.

                          Decided to give scratchers another try. I bought 8 of the new $5 bingo games and 6 of the $5 777 games. From the bingo, only one winner of $10. The 777 all lost...

                          My losing streak continues.

                            Wow a year goes by so quick, I do remember that 500 fast spot win you guys got.

                            I bought about 20 of those Million $$ Match myself thus far and did not get good results. 

                            Good luck to you.

                              Thanks CAScratcher20. It didn't turn out as good this time. I didn't pay attention to ticket numbers and individual results but this is how it turned out:

                               

                              First Batch - $400 became $330

                              Second Batch - $330 became $110

                              Third Batch - $110 became $65

                              Last Batch - The dream was over.

                               

                              Either way, we got to play a lot of tickets and had a good time. Until next year!
