Hello,

 I am a small time player when it comes to scratch tickets. I msotly lurk and read.  But enjoy reading all your threads and news of your success.   I like to play numbers, but you ask for loser for the florida ann/25.00 edition, so decided to post my limited results.   I've bought seven of these tickets in last 3 days. Don't follow scratch tickets so much, so just spotted em the other day.  I bought from 4 places--one out of machine, and 3 in a set which were numbered 000, 001 and 002.   Tonite, I got the last one on a roll. and am down 175.00,= have won zip.  (this is why I do not play scratch ticketes=(.     

Can I ask, is it bad to buy last one on roll?  I bought two tonite, at same place that had two rolls going.  Clerk suggested I might not want to buy the one that was last one when I ask why she said cause some people do not like them???  I have read the beginning and ending are the best places to be at roll. Though I know some say the middle is good too.  So I figure its pot luck. LOL   

 

Happy scratching! =)

        I do ask all of the time. As long as there isn't a long line behind you. I also ask what the odds are on the new games when they first come out.

        It's ok to ask because you're going to buy.

        Feeling,  PRICELESS!!!Banana

        Come on Jackpot!!!

              STANG - it sures looks like they kept $80 - I'm surprised you didn't catch that if you cashed them at the DO .......was it by mail ? I don't know what you can do about it - IF you had photo copies then I think  you would get the $80 ..... by letter etc .......but who makes photcopies of their tickets ...... anyway I was at Publix yesterday and saw an amazing thing happen - I was headed to the machine to buy just one or two $25M's when this real cute gal about 21 - walked up to buy - as the gentleman I am ? I let her go ahead of me- she bought one $25M from each bin. Total of two ...........I almost crapped in my pants - one was $200 and the other was $500 !!!!!!! saw it with my own eyes as she cashed them in ------ I would have had those two !! My luck with $25'M's was and is awful ....... but I figured what the hell I'll get one from each bin ........

              wins: $10,000 Jubilee - $5,000 $200MS - 32 $1k's - 185 $500's - 5 $400's

                  Hey Stang,  I've been only playing the 25 dollar millionaire and looking for input on ways everyone is doing it.  I have been pretty succesful thus far (knock on wood) and was considering buying a book.   I just signed up FYI so i am not sure if this post is correct or placed in the right area.  What i am looking for is to get any feedback or success stories on how to play these.   I can tell you today I been buying anything i can from 10 down to 000 which they do alot in my area and has been very good.   The other question I have is the codes.   I posted mine but really trying to see what codes mean etc..   Thanks!!!

                   Good Luck

                    Welcome. You need to ask the Florida crew about codes and suggestions.

                        Kr122, I notice in your signature line that list the codes for some of your wins--are you sure that the $1,000 winner was TWN?  I've never known of that code at all, and all of the codes that end with the letter N are either a hundred (HUN) Two Hundred (THN) and Five Hundred (FHN)..usually the codes for a win of more than $500 are codes like CVW, or NVW, VTE, but I've never seen TWN....

                          Stang, have you followed up with them about this?  I think you said something about calling them and giving them the serial number from the tickets, etc....any luck with that? Can't believe they shorted you!!!

                              Sweet hit!!!!!  By the way, I have never hit a grand. I've hit back-to-back $500's....literally back to back from different rolls....that's happened 3 times to me!! But I would love to hit that thousand in one ticket!!! 

                               

                              Anyway, specifically about codes, I'll do my best to list them below. As you have experienced, the "losing" codes are also the same codes that appear on winning tickets of more than $500....basically, the "winning" codes usually make some sort of reasonable reference to the amount won.... TWY for twenty, TFV for Twenty-five, THY for thirty, FRY forty, FTY fifty, HUN hundred, THN, two hundred, FOH four hundred, FHN five hundred.....on the tickets that cost less than $20, you will find codes like FIV for five, TEN for ten, etc...I think ONE is one...haaha......but mainly when you see CVW or FTW, or VTE, or NVW, etc....those are losing codes. Otherwise, they mean that you've got yourself a grand or more!!! Congrats on your grand!!!!
