Are the numbers in parenthesis the order of the ticket you purchase?

where are you seeing the parenthesis?

    Thanks Jon. I sent an email on CA lottery site ....How long does it take for them to get back to me?

    They can be somewhat lackadaisical about it. It should only take more than a few days to turnaround your request, but the last time they took several weeks!

    They came back with some lame excuse that it took a long time to run my request... Yeah, right! I work with databases, and that kind of simple query shouldn't take more than a few seconds or minutes.

      I hear you Jon. I am myself a software engineer for past 20 plus yrs. A simple "select * from table_sfl where yr=2012": shouldn't take more than a few seconds ;-)

        Yep, it shouldn't have to be this hard. Oh well, state workers, what do you expect...

        I had looked at the Scratchers data before and it was unremarkable. I had the 2011 Scratchers data for a while but was too busy too bother looking at it.

        What is really interesting is that one store in Santa Clara that got three $2,000,000 SFL prizes in that year, which is really unusual since only about 1 in 10 stores ever see *any* Top prizes at all. In fact, only one other store had more than one 6 figure prize.

        Here is the mapped 2011 Scratchers data filtered for Top Prizes for CA:

          Cool map and stats ! Love it..

          Yes I watched the shuttle this moring. It flew over my work place in Glendale and over my house in Burbank :-) as many flyover sites like Hollywood Hills, Universal, JPL , Griffith Observatory are all close by. 

           

          I got 4 $5 CA Black scratchers from Reseda about 1 hour back. 3 losers and 1 had the 10x symbol with a $1 under...Duh got 50% back ..

                There are still 9 top prize left..so it may take some time unless the Lottery sees drastic reduction in sales. I am not a big fan of SFL though I but them occassionally. Over 20 years the value of the dollar will fall so the amount we receive during the later years will fetch less at that time.

                  So Fortune 1,000,000 is a good buy right now? Can anyone calculate the after tax winning of that?

                    No CA tax on lottery winnings. Fed tax is 25% so I guess you should get $750,000 for top price.

                          If this is any use to anybody here's my results to my Monopoly $5 scratchers book.

                          Monopoly

                          ()= ticket number

                          0-10: (1) Tix 13, (2) $6 47,26,41,16,46, (3) Tix 39, (4) $20 Win, (7) Tix 47, (8) $30 Train          $71

                          11-20: (12) $10 31,11, (13) $6 43,46,23,24,38, (15) $20 Win, (19) Tix 49, (20) $6 25              $47

                          21-30: (21)$6 7, (23) Tix 25, (27) Tix 22, (28) $10 Train, (29) Tix 33                                          $31

                          31-40:                                                                    Nothing!!!                                                     $0

                          41-50: (41) $30 Train, (43) $10 Train, (47) $6 32,26,22,28,8                                                     $46

                          51-60: (59) $10 24,32,34,13,7                                                                                                   $10

                          61-70: (62) $30 Train,  (63) Tix 43, (68) $10 7,44,34,41,29                                                       $45

                          71-79: (77) $10 Train                                                                                                                $10

                                                                                                                                                                             $260

                           

                          More than half back but disappointing in a sense that I thought new scratchers first issue books are more likely to payback and plus some. Also, this book came from a hot store that sold a million dollar scratcher in 2011 and sold a 20,000 and 10,000 ticket last year. Good luck to all....and me as well!

                            Thanks for posting your book results on this new game, I haven't seen any of these Monopoly yet in my stores, maybe tomorrow.

                            I don't usually buy books, because you only have like a 1-in-10 to 1-in-20 odds of turning a profit. And since minimum pack return is around 40-50%, thats a big hit all at once. You got pretty decent with 65% return. But since you are playing more, you are also more likely to get bigger wins.

                            But best of luck to you on future books!

                              Hey Jon D,

                              So, I've bought books and I've bought random tickets from several stores but am still not producing winning results...Do you have any strategies that work? If you don't feel comfortable sharing, it's all good.................Or is it all about luck? I hope not
