All the leaves are brown
All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
And the sky is grey
I've been for a walk
I've been for a walk
On a winter's day
On a winter's day
I'd be safe and warm
I'd be safe and warm
If I was in L.A.
If I was in L.A.

    Stopped by a Chevron retailer:

    (5) $2 LFL (#87 - 83)

    Ticket, 0, 0, 0, 0

    (2) $5 RR 7 (#36 - 35)

    10, 0

    (1) 1M Fortune (#0)

    0

    I really dislike the end of the roll as well.  In this case, I also got duped by the retailer stacking rolls of $1M Fortune.  If i had my pick every time, it would be right in the middle.

      Anyone else keep a tally of their losing/winning numbers?

      I have a small sample (256) from my $5 scratchers ... and my worst regions are the late 20's to early 30's and late 50's, late 60's and early 70's range. Of course they may have no meanings ... but any accurate information can become useful so I thought I would share ... tata for now~

      I am probably unusual in that I do keep a record of every single scratch ticket I buy, several thousand by now over a few years. I get just as much enjoyment out of the data collection and analysis as I do from playing scratchers.(or more even) I don't believe in any special significance to ticket numbers, but I know some people do. I see some people in stores ask about what ticket number is next on the roll, and in some stores they always take the 000 ticket for themselves, but I don't believe in that.

      I do have a theory that big wins are in the 45% to 85% range in the pack, but this is hard to prove. And you will never know where the top prize is, that could be anywhere. I place more value on tracking the ticket pack numbers and overall game progress, as well as evaluating your competition in the store as being more valuable than anything else.

        I read that last year in the CA $10 scratcher ($250 million spectacular), one of the top prize winner got the last ticket in the roll...and guess what..she won $1 mill.

          anyone know of a good phone app to neatly log ticket number as well as roll number ... even better if you can log the ticket price, ticket prize, and whether it was a special symbol win of not *^^*

           

          i got a tip from a chevron clerk ...
          he said that higher chances if there is a thick white strip between the tickets ...
          i will take a photo of it next time i see it ...

          so i did some trial runs ... and of course it didn't win all the time ... but something fun you can look out for ...

          i am so itching to play ... but gonna be strong and hold off until next week *^^*

            Most likely those white strip tickets are losers and clerk wants you to buy them so that he get the loaded scratcher next on the roll.. ROFLMAO !!

                    Esteemed Bumkillah, if that is your real name, I believe MSN's ticket was damaged if I remember correctly, so it couldn't be validated at the store--had to be sent to the Lottery office.

                        i am such an addict ... went to a KENO restaurant for the first time ... a shiny scratcher machine greets me and so i drop $20 ...

                        $10 LFL - (00) $0
                        $5 GBB - (59, 60) $0

                        So that broke my hiatus and today i go to my chevron to put gas and dump some more $$$

                        wanted to play the $3 tripling xwords but the machine got stuck so i only got on ticket and played a bunch of others

                        $3 TC - (81) $0
                        $2 LFL - (56) $0
                        $5 GBB - (41, 40, 38, 06) $0 (37) $6 (05) Ticket (39) can't remember T.T

                        should have stopped there but played the mega xwords

                        $5 MC (76-73) $0
                        $10 LFL (18, 17) $0, ticket

                        and tested Jon D's sequential theory on the 7's

                        $5 RR (26) $0 (25) Ticket (24) $10

                        Thank you Jon D ... *^^* overall BOO~! Did win $10 on another $10 LFL (10)

                            Congrats on your winall on Fantastic 10s!

                            I dunno why, but I always like seeing winall symbols. Guess it is part of their psychological mind trick, like the "ding ding ding" on a slot machine to get you excited and salivating for more. I've seen $30 by winall and 10x $3, and also $50 by winall and 10x $5, but nothing higher. Haven't played in a while, and it will probably be ending soon.

                              Looks like they did a reorder on $5 LFL, like I figured they would. Added 7 more top prizes for a total of 17. But they goofed on the numbers by changing the odds for each prize tier, which is a major error and misprint for 4/20.
