As of May 2, 2013 there are 6,047,490 \$10 Fortune winners.
Multiply that by overall odds of 1 in 3.30, we have 19,956,717.

These are the approximate number of tickets sold by lottery if they follow their statistics.
Divide the number by the odds of winning the top prize of 1 in 1,200,000, we have 16.63.

But there are only 11 top prize winning tickets so far.

What's going on?

Odds doesn't necessarily mean anything...Remember odds are still averages.. Its possible a few rolls may have the most no of top prizes concentrated and that will skew your math as it shows. I am surprised there are 14 top prizes still remaining as someone hit the top one a few weeks back after a long time..

Went and picked up:

4 \$5 Ruby Red 7's: 0, 0, 0, 0

4 \$5 Fortune55: 0, 0, 0, 6

Pretty pissed off right now.  Since i've been playing mostly \$5 games recently, I probably lost more money in the last week than I would have in a whole month playing \$2 and \$3 tickets.  Sure, the winners are bigger for \$5 games but I think i'm going to focus more on the \$2 and \$3 tickets from now on and only buy a couple \$5's rather than a whole bunch.

At least when I played 20 bucks on \$2 and \$3 games I actually got half my money back or more.  I've now spent almost \$100 on \$5 scratchers and have only got like \$15 back.

Too rich for my blood.

i had told the clerk at my local liquor/deli store that he should play them 000 when he puts in a new roll ...

he told me he did today when he plugged in the new fortune 55 ... and he was happy \$20 winner *^^*

anyways ... i got 4 more fortune 55 from another store ...

and another \$50 winner whee ... i am loving the fortune 55

#12 - \$0

#13 - ticket

#14 - \$0

#15 - \$50 (\$5 x 8, \$1 - 10x symbol)

also tested the last ticket of a roll theory ...

the ticket number on the ruby red 7 was at 74 ...

i hoped to hit before i had to finish the roll but it wouldnt so i went over the 4 ticket limit and just bought the last two ...

and the last ticket was the winner ... \$20 ... matched all 18 slots ... \$1 ea. and one red 7 for \$3 ...

\$20 - 5 Million Jackpot \$100 (#23) \$50 (#29)
\$10 - Cali Gold \$500 (#45) // Lucky for Life \$50 // Diamond Million \$50 (#18) // 20X Crosswords \$100 (#32,#24,#14) \$75 (#13)

nice hit on the fortune55 game! I cant seem to find any winners on that one yet! I too believe in the end/beginning theory, might just be in my head

but i've seen a lot of big winners towards the end of rolls but it can easily be any number.

Bought 2 tickets tonight,

#32-1  mil fortune: \$10, matched 4 numbers \$2.00 under each , was hoping for more but hey its better than nothing!

#12 - \$5 LFL: \$15 dollar win matching three numbers with \$5 under each, so up \$10 for the night.

Found another Win-All on Fortune55, my 3rd so far, but yet another small one at only \$20 total.(10@ \$2) I think the message is clear, if they were trying to send a message: if you see a Win-All symbol, DON'T get excted, they're probably just jerkin' your chain.

(#25-28) - 0, \$20, tkt, 0

Also got a mix of other tickets:

\$10 1Mfortune - 0

\$5 Ruby Red - 0

\$3 10X the Money - \$20 (5X \$4)

\$2 Shamrock green - \$20 (10 \$2 matches)

Now, I don't mean to sound like an ingrate, but sometimes I think, "daggummit, I wasted a hit on a small value ticket." Coulda had a \$50 or \$100 instead of \$20 if the hit was on the higher denomination tickets. Oh well...

Hey Jon, with regards to Fortune 55 prizes, I think the same can be said about the 10x symbol.  I have gotten the 10x symbol twice, and both times @\$1.00.  They're DEFINITELY jerkin' my chain!!

Yeah, the 10X \$1 is pretty common on many different games. But the Win-All is supposed to be the most rare symbol, only used for special occasions. At least it used to be. They totally ruined it with this Fortune 55 game with that \$10 Win-All I found. And I just got another one, my 4th Win-All, but again, only small \$20 total. Is everyone else seeing a lot of (small) Win-All on F55 or is it just me?

#16-19: \$20, \$6, 0, 0 - \$20 was Win-All 10@ \$2

#50-53: \$10, 0, \$6 , 0

The \$10 fortune tickets suck real bad, I just went through 4 of them in a row and lost on ALL of them. I have never had any luck on that ticket,

I'm completely done with it. The most i've never won was a measly \$10 which is the cost of the ticket! I find it  amazing that i've done much better on games with worse odds and cost less than that one.  I think i'll try to stick to some of the \$5 and under games for now.
