    Wow what a win!

    Clumps did not exist when I played a bunch. Probably will try that instead of CA Black.

        Anyone else play the $1 & $2 LFLs?  I consider them to be similar to lotto tickets, long odds but inexpensive to play.

        Latest venture 6 2LFL  $12 in, $2 out. 1 1LFL $1 in, 0 out.

          I do not play any form of $1 and $2 scratchers at all where the returns of those games are 57% and 62% respectively, its still better than the daily draw games where the prizes are pari-mutuel from 50 cents out of every dollar played.

          Odds are pretty high at 1 in 6 million for a top prize for each $1/$2 LFL game, so they are like lotto tickets to me like since it can pay out better than Fantasy 5 (1 in 575757), Daily Derby (1 in 1320000), and sometimes 5 out of 5 prize Powerball (1 in 5.15 Million).

          I guess the most valuable part the CA Lottery gained from this LFL game is that people will play if the top prize offered is high, 96 million tickets printed (including reprints) for $1 LFL.

          I persoanlly would to play Fantasy 5 when the jackpot carries over twice or do a Daily 4 Straight/Box

            Yeah, I play the $1 LFL sometimes, not so much the $2 one though.  I did notice that the CA Lottery re-ordered more for those two LFL games recently.  They added 2 top prizes to the $1 LFL game in December/November, and 1 top prize to the $2 LFL game last month. 

            I just saw that the $10 LFL top prize count went down to 2...

                Got rocked again with California Black Exclusive, the store ran out of $20 tickets so I ended up with this instead

                 

                20 Tickets: #21 - 40

                #23: $15

                #28: $10

                #29: $15

                #33: $20

                #34: $10

                #37: $15

                 

                Hit 8 out of 30, 1 in 3.75, but 33% ROI is not too good of a start. Probably will have to skip next week budget wise.

                    No way? Are you kidding? Ouch!

                    I always say, if someone wins right after me on the next ticket, I DO NOT want to know about it. I feel for you... Sad Cheers

                        Speechless ...

                        Any idea about the ticket number? From 0 to 79 on the $5.

                        I feel bad about my loss today but its nowhere near this.

                            That's terrible. Reminds me of a few years ago, I was in Vegas feeding $20's into a dollar slot machine (close to $300) then moved to the machine right next to it. Some guy immediately sat down and stuck a $20 in the one I was playing. He hit $25,000 on the 2nd roll! I was sick to my stomach. People started gathering around and congratulating the big winner and I had to get out of there. I'm still sick about it today.

                             

                            Sorry to hear about your miss ScratchMe.
