Hiya ...I noticed that a few liquor stores on melrose the owner scratches his own tickets.

Even at a  vending machine I have seen the person loading take the first three and last three tickets

I am not convinced the odds stated are realistic because the odds were calculated by how many tickets issued to how many winners. I think if the odds stated how many tickets distributed and winners we would see what a losing deal the ca lottery is. The tickets have serial number so the state mustard know where the tickets are. I find it suspicious that games like monopoly still have winning  prizes available yet the game is over. How can it be that there are that many remaining prizes but no tickets?

Something just does not add up...the hype and what we are led to believe and the actual results.

I got 5 $20...all losers.

So the odds are stated IF all printed tickets were distributed....but only a fractio  is distributed. So to adhere to those odds, each 10, 000 tickets must have somany winners whi h means the placement of winners is not random or the odds are Iincorrectly stated.

    I pitched with three other guys to buy $400 worth of $20 tickets. We ended up with $745 thanks mainly to a ticket with a $500 Fast Spot (ticket number 018). I took a pic but am having transferrring it from my phone. Although our individual profits weren't spectacular, we had a blast playing together.

      Nice result from your teamwork.

        anyone else having problems logging into the calottery replay?

        They seem to be having some rollout bugs with the new 2nd chance system.

        I complained the first day because the date sorting was backwards and the prev/next wasn't working correctly when viewing your entries. They fixed those, but now it just seems slow and non-responsive a lot.

          The site does feel slow for me as well. Need to get used to how they flipped the 6 or 7 digit and the 13 code around.

          I usually enter a bunch at a time, so I normally Control+V to paste the 6/7 code then the 13 digit code, but I need to gain the habit of entering the code (trying to exclude the last 3 for the $5MM Jackpot tickets) and then pasting the ticket ID.

          It does provide a lot more back history of the codes Ive entered since 2010 (3 years back), I've entered thousands of losing tickets, but not one winner for any drawing.

            Great Win with just 20 tickets.

            Most of the rolls are filled with break even prizes, but you got the best part of the roll.

              I think the $1 and $2 Monopoly have ended and I think the $5 Monopoly ends this month, I do not see it anywhere.

              Not sure if there is any truth to this rumor, the top prizes are always a single match in non-crossword and bingo games, people tend to overlook the matches and throw away a big winner. I think the plus side to the 2nd Chance program is to help you confirm if a ticket is aindeed a winner or loser.

              I appreciate hearing your testimony about ticket loading, they must have seen luck on the ticket ends. I will try it for myself if I am allowed to buy the ends of tickets.

                We bought 15 tix in Eagle Rock and 5 tix in Pasadena. Funny thing was that the $500 came out of the 5 ticket roll.

                I didn't keep track of ticket numbers or sequences too much but some other winners were JACKPOT SYMBOL with $2.00 ($50), $50 Fast Spot ($50); 5 numbers that matched for $10 ($50); a $25 and some break evens.

                My friends are not hardcore scratchers but are now eager to do this once a month.

                  Thanks Jon. It was nice seeing that $500 Fast Spot. First one I have seen in this game.

                    Is there usually a part of a roll that has the winners?

                      Yes its called the lucky part of the roll ;-)

                      One more top prize claimed on both $10 Fortune and Diamond.

                        Got a $10 Diamond and won a ticket. With the free ticket I got the last one from a batch of $10 Fortunes...They had a new roll of $10 Fortunes underneath and I ended up buying the first one from next roll...so pretty much I have the last one from one roll and first one from the next roll....Haven't scratched yet....
