      Turned in some other tickets and my $8 from two small Powerball hits and got a bunch of tickets today during lunch:

      Smokin' Hot Cash: 0, 0, $15, 0

      Diamond Millionaire: 0, 0

      Boo Diamond MM, you suck! ...but then at another store:

      Diamond Millionaire: $100, 0 - finally got the Win-All Diamond symbol in ticket #29, was hoping for bigger but it was all $5 wins.

      And got 1 Mega Crossword that was a $10 win.

        nice hit on the diamond!  I have yet to get one though, maybe after i get a big hit on the Smokin Cash.

        Got 2 more Smokin Hot Cash, $10 and a bust.

          Yeah, that Diamond Mil owed me big time, I got clobbered early on. Only now just barely caught up to expected return.

          A few tickets played today:

          Smokin Hot: 0, tkt

          $500k Riches: $6, 0

          $1MFortune: $10

          Diamond Mil: $20

          Made a buck... Yawn

                  Frustration with Smokin' Hot continues....0-5 in game, with 2 more losses (56, 55) this morning.

                  Same thing happened with 500K Riches, I started out 0 - 6 losses before hitting $30.  That is 1 - in 122 odds.

                  Interesting enough is that $30 was my last winner before this current 0-5 streak in Smokin' Hot.  Should have stayed with 500K Riches :/

                    That's how it goes down sometimes, unfortunately. But 1 out of 4, it could have been worse.(I've had worse...)

                    I posted about this once before but it got little response. I call it the Winner's Curse.

                      Got some wins on a small play day. I've been diverting money to play Hot Spot this month during the promotion, so have played less Scratchers, but so far that's been a bust.

                      2 Smoking Hot, new roll (#000,001): $30, $6 - nice to have a small chaser after a mid size win

                      1 Diamond Mil (#15): $50 - was a diamond symbol win-all with $2 and $3 matches.

                      Here is pic of the $50 Diamond win-all and the one I had last week for $100: (notice both were fast spot 102 and diamond on bottom right)

                      DiamondMM

                      They better not ever give me a win-all with only $1 wins or I might tear the friggin thing up!

                            all I won was a free ticket on the LFL...another disaster...I am seriously thinking of stopping to buy scratchers for next month or so. This addiction is not good...plus wife is leaving her part time job to take care of our kid...all in all something inside me is telling me to quit playing scratchers all together..

                              If you're thinking you need to stop playing, especially if you think you may be addicted, then you probably should stop.

                              http://www.calottery.com/play-responsibly/what-is-problem-gambling

                              I'm probably a bit different than most players. I don't play Scratchers because I like playing them. For me it's more of a study. And I have a fixed amount I spend per month that I know is gone, not coming back. If I win, I can play more. If I lose, I play less. But the same amount is gone each month.
