    Thanks for the clarification. I did not pay too much attention to the clerks or other people when I used to chase until I win on 3 of the tickets. To stop that habit I now take the tickets away from the store and scratch them so that I do not chase. 

    The new 2nd Chance system is up, originally promised to be up at 7am, but now its up again. Time to enter all those losing tickets I amassed.

    Yeah, I pretty much always take my tickets to go. Helps shield you from (and not give any info to) win chasers and hawks. Very rarely, if I can find a empty store and vending machine to myself, I might do a limited win chasing. Also, taking them to go limits the tendency to overspend by chasing in store.

    I see some regular heavy players often scratching on the down low. An old guy I see at one store a lot always takes the tickets outside to scratch. And a lady at another store always takes the tickets out to her car to scratch, instead of inside at the table or counter.

    I also tried the new 2nd chance entry system on my short stack of $20 tickets. All tickets went in fine...darn. Was hoping one of them was a winner I overlooked, even though I usually double/triple check tickets most times and rarely ever miss a win. Oh well.

      I splurged today and bought 2 $5M JP from one store, mainly because I lost twice before at that store and was trying to get even. Nope...fail. Both lost!

      Also got 3 Smokin Hot: tkt, 0, $20

      Not enough to make up for the $40 down the drain on two $5M JP...

        I did a little chasing at a West Hollywood 7-11 last night. Bought three $20 tix one by one and lost. Took $100 out of trusty Citibank ATM and hit $100 Fast Spot on fourth ticket (#007). I haven't cashed the winner but plan to deposit the $100 back to my account (at least that is the plan).

          Decided to try a $20 Scratcher at the liquor store I have had all my big winners over the year at.  The guy told me to buy it because it was due.  The ticket was #004 in the roll and it won $100(20X$5).  That was unexpected.  These guys have been good though in pushing me sometimes to go out of the box.  They said $1,000,000 Fortune is about done and they are out of them so that sucks.

            Went to a 7-11 today, haven't been to one in a while. Bought a $5M JP and turn to leave and the clerk said, "hey wait, take this" and handed me a CA Lottery T-shirt. I guess they must have a bunch of these things still available. Who knows how many thousands of shirts calottery printed for this promotion.

            The ticket lost, so at least I got a consolation prize. It's 100% cotton, so even if I don't wear it around, I can use it for other purposes.

            T-shirt

                    I bought one $20 tikcet (017) and got $20. Cashed it in at a different store later for another $20 ticket (also 017) and got $25. That is four tickets in the last couple days that end in 7 in which I won something.

                    Tomorrow two friends and I are chipping in $100 to get $300 worth of $20 tickets. We will see how that goes.

                        I noticed that this morning, I actually check every morning and these tickets I see are being sold at 2% allocation a week.

                        No articles about the winner thus far. We should see another $5MM winner in the next 3 weeks.

                          Good to hear about all the success you guys have had with this $20 ticket.

                          I have been playing recently except I am very distraught with the outcomes as of late. The results are as real as it gets, all Break Even Prizes, brings down ROI quite a bit. I even pulled off a CatScratch like purcahse on the day the 2nd Chance Replay reopened, but sufferred losses there too. I probably will tap out on this $20 ticket much earlier than I expected (probably mid-November), though I have been playing more compulsive than usual. This ticket feels like the $5 Set for Life, more of a hit or miss game, not enough low tier prizes to keep me in the game. I think the $10 ones fit my level of play.

                            I have had a little run of "Meh" luck recently.  I sort of classify that as anything under $100.  I won $50 on a Million Dollar Fortune ticket, $20 on the $20 one and $30 on a Lucky For Life.  Good thing was that I only bought 3 tickets so something on all 3. 

                            I found a Stater Brothers in a bit of a dingy neighborhood with a machine so I figured I would try it.  I guess I will be returning.

                              $1,000,000 Fortune is over 90% sold and still has 6 top prizes remaining.

                              If I see them anywhere, I would buy them.

                              I saw a snippet of next month's games.

                               

                              There will be a $5 game similar to Fortune 55, except it has 37 boxes instead

                              Another 5x Crossword for the $3 game

                              Another $10 game that resembles both Diamond Millionaire and $1MM Fortune
