Last night I bought some GRT. I bought #29-19 all duds. This morning bought 18-16 Again duds. Later in the day 14-10 all duds. So I bought all those tickets minus #15.  15 may or may not have been a winner. So there are 10 tickets left my guess is they all are duds or a couple winners. Has anyone ever bought an entire roll of all duds?

    I would not doubt it its the florida lottery after all lol

    I remember one time i bought the last 36 (Thirty-six) $10 $200MS on the roll and every single ticket was a loser. made me wonder if there were ANY winners on that roll...........

    2014 Highest Winner: $500

      In Texas, each roll is guarantted a cetain amount to pay out. I dont know about other states.

        So I bought the rest of the roll.  I bought every ticket except #15, #9 every single ticket was a dud. I have every ticket accounted for but those two.  I'm sending an email to florida lottery. I have feeling #15 and 9 probably were duds too.  I'm sure they can pull the info from the serial codes.  wonder hiw they are going to explain this. How many other rolls out there are all duds too. Maybe #15 &9 were winners but still that is not cool to only have two winners in a roll of $20 tickets. shame on Floida lottery or whoever makes these tickets. I think after this huge loosing streak I'm officially done. I have said it before but this is a scam. I know it's a gamble but odds are 1:2.95. I bought 28 tickets without a single hit.

          Are you saying you didn't even win a free ticket?  While free tickets are mostly losers too, they count as a prize.  Prizes don't have to be money.

            Not too good Lucky !!! I remember writing to the lottery asking about the odds on tickets - say they are 1:3.00 - they wrote back explaining those were the "estimated" odds adding up all the tickets to be printed ........... and selling them all ............... leaves a lot of hit and miss room and their answer still never made sanse to me. As far as your bad luck - I bought a roll of $200MS a few years ago - got a $5k on one ticket and all the rest were duds .................. just wondering and is it possible #15, #9 were both or individually a BIG win and therefore making the balance of the roll all duds? Good luck on your answer from the Lottery - I never got a sensible answer to questions I used to ask .......... most replies were boiler plate : "Thank you for writing and have a nice day"     LOL - let us know what they say ............. instead of sending an email to their site - send a LETTER to the head of the lottery with all your losing tickets - that way they will know you are not some crank just sounding off.

            wins: $10,000 Jubilee - $5,000 $200MS - 31 $1k's - 185 $500's - 5 $400's

              Jesus that is more than terrible. that is just robbery.

              To add what skeptic said, 1 in 3 is OVERALL odds. which means out of the MILLIONS of tickets printed, 33% are winning tickets. Since florida has no individual regulations on rolls, it might be that a roll can have 30 duds or 30 winners. I have bought $20 rolls with 20 winners out of 30 but i have also bought rolls with only 6 winners. Like I said, i went thru more than half a roll of $200MS once and did not get a single winner.
