Saw on lottery website where someone from Sanford hit 1 million on the 100x ticket.

Hey bike - just checked it and you're right. Ticket bought in Casselberry at a KWIK STOP FOOD STORE. The winner walked away with $731,217.80 - boy would that ease my pain ! So maybe what's still out there could be big hits ? I'd like to see a photo of what the lottery calls 'warehouse' - bet it's an empty room in one of the lottery exec's house or his garage   LOL

$731,217.80 - wonder if he was one of the never buys and just bought this one. Wish the lottery would put out more news about the winners - how many they buy and so forth. Would be more interesting to read don't you think ?

      So before work, I invested a little and bought 4 gold rushes and 4 ben's.  Broke even on those guys...2 tickets got me 10.00 each, and got single match for 5.00 on the gold rushes.  After work, took 5 lucky red sevens.  First ticket out, got my first 'lucky' symbol, and it got me a whole 30.00. Whoopie!  Lost on the other four.  Sigh.  It's been a long month.  Guess I'll go play two dollar tickets next.  Good fortune, everyone..

        so, I did just that.  Went to my corner Mobile and got fifteen of the 2.00 lfl...037-051. 

        037 = 4.00

        048 = 4.00

        050 = 2.00

        I'm pretty much over this game already.  I did get 87 entries into the drawing...or was it 174?  each ticket entered repeated itself...sort of like a 2 for 1 deal. 

        Tomorrow's another day.  Don't know if I should stick with one game?  or stick with one retailer?  I feel like I'm shooting in the dark here.  From the time I started posting and sharing winning tickets here, I had eight decent prizes from 4-11 through 5-18.  Since then, nothing!  Oh well, maybe I'll dream of something.  Goodnight all, and good fortune to you...

          Regarding the second chance drawings, they give you one entry for the first draw on the 17th of July, and the same loosing ticket is entered for the grand prize draw on the 14th of august.

            In some respect, it is a little comforting to know that at least one more million dollar prize was floating around.  The lotto website shows six $1M prizes remaining.  But their press release today on the winner was silent on the number of prizes.  The release simply said:

            "The $25 game, 100X THE CASH, offers top prizes of $1 million and $5 million. The game's overall odds of winning are one-in-2.86."

            I think they know that there are not six $1M prizes floating around.  At this point,maybe there is one left and the possible $5M prize.  I sent in a request to the lottery to obtain the serial/book numbers on the 5 previous $5M winners.  I'm curious to see where they came out.

            Also, I didn't have the guts to buy the $5,000 a week for life book after my bad luck during the first few days with the game.  But I did but one book of the $2,500 a week for life and I ended up with $170.  The cost was $300 so it was a net loss of $130.  I used those proceeds and some of my own money to buy a book of the $1,000 a week for life.  That ended up with $194 in winnings at a cost of $300 as well.  So down an additional $106.  Sadly, both books had above average returns and were still losers.  I have plenty of second chance drawings but I have no real illusions of actually winning anything if past second chance drawings are a good indication of my chances.  One strange thing with the drawing dates is that the first drawing gives people nearly a month to enter tickets but the next two drawing only give about 2 weeks.

              The FL Lottery Facebook page sometimes posts the $1M winning tickets.

              If I had to guess, I'd say this $1M hit was in the 1,030ish-1,040ish range. There could be one hovering beyond 1,050,000 or like you said those could part of the extra books ordered.

              Here's what I do know, I am NOT surprised that Kwik Stop was a selling location. Gainesville has Kwik Stops and if you've ever been to one of them, you'll notice these guys have rolls and rolls of tickets going on at the same time. Because of traffic, I've never been able to get over to the location on 34th St North of Archer Rd but I'm almost positive they still have 100x tickets. Sai's liquor (which I think is affiliated with Kwik Stop on SW 16th) also has still has them.

              Because they have endless rolls they tend to pile up. And so it is possible they could have some winners left. Some of the other liquor stores tend to do that also.

               

              Unfortunately, after my $100 winner earlier this week, I had to put off playing any more scratchers due to a faulty Electric Meter that is charging me double the electric I am using. Anybody have Sumter Electric (SECO)? Somehow, despite 12 years of never using more than 1,200 KwH in the 1 month, since we moved from Gainesville (evil GRU) to Ocala, every usage month has been over 1,500 kwH. This past week when we wern't even in the house and there was a short outage, they tried to tell me we used 82 kwh in 1 day! Our A/C has been set no lower than 80 since May because we're terrified of lowering it and is the only appliance going on/off but not on all the time. This past week I've been recording the hour by hour readings and somehow we're using about 3-4 kwh. This is on pace for 2,000 kwh or more and a $300 bill yet we're sweating horribly here? I have emailed these clowns 3-4 times and of course there's no one in on the weekends so I had to shell out another $150 (I'm in the prepaid program) that will only last 2 weeks. I hate the electric company.

                I played (10) $5 $2,500 A week for life tickets yesterday from my local Winn-Dixie again. I spent $50 and won back $145 for a $95 profit.

                  Well I chickened out and did not purchase a roll of the 200 Million Spectacular.  I purchased a mix of tickets and lost my rear.

                  Today's purchases:

                  6 - $25 100x the Cash = won $30 and 5 losers

                  6 x $25 Florida Cash = won $25, $40, $50 and 3 losers

                  5 x $20 Gold Rush = won $50 and 4 losers

                  10 x $10 $200 Million Spectacular = won $50, $10, $10 and 7 losers

                  5 x $10 $5,000 a week for Life = all losers

                  10 x 5 $2,500 a week for Life = won $5, $20 and 8 losers

                  I need a drink or two after this defeat.

                    Ripped through 14 $25 Florida cash - 3 winners for $80

                        For me GRT was the best game paying out $500's and $500 nuggets - I never won over $500 on it but won way over 100 $500's & $500 nuggets.

                        The game is now dead.

                        The odds for winning $500 on GRT  was about the same as shown for GR - what's strange is even tho the odds SAY the same I only won two $500's on GR playing about the same number of tickets as I did with GRT ......how can that be when the odds are almost indentical. Something like 179 to one.

                        It's either a lie, misprint of they havn't released the $500's and Gold Bar $500's. When you click on the $20 GR ticket in FLORIDALOTTERY.COM - it says right on the ticket "loaded with $100's and $500's" ... yeah, loaded with bullsh1t is what it should read :)

                            Last week bought the new 10 dollar scratch off won 100 now since then have bought 5 or more of them and haven't won a <snip> thing. These either hit or suck. I hate the no code on them also.

                              So we went to Tampa today after turning off everything in the house. We came home and supposedly the meter said 30Kwh was used in less than 8 hrs. So it's 84 in here because we're afraid to run the A/C at all and switched everything off the circuit breaker until we can pinpoint where the excess electricity is coming from, or if I'm just being charged by a bogus meter.

                              But enough of that... to the Scratcher News

                              We went to International Plaza and Bay Street Shopping Mall. There was a convenience store in there that sells lotto. My mom traded her 2 tickets off (a $10 and $2) winners for 2 of the $2 Lotto for Life and I got a $20 GR because they were out of 100X and I didn't feel like playing Florida Cash.

                              My GR Ticket #20 lost. I've had hideous luck with this ticket.

                              My mom got Tickets #20 and #21 of the $2 LFL new game

                              Ticket #20 was a $4 winner

                              Ticket #31 matched 1 number for $30! 

                              My mom has had some pretty good luck with the $2. Last week she snagged a $20 winner which I told her they usually only have 1 every 150. For her $30 win, it's 1 in 360. Sheesh, I can't even find one stinking $500 winner on 1 in 196. I must be doing something wrong.

                              When to my photobucket account, can't remember my sign in info but I do have a pic of it. Sure it's a low value scratcher, but $30 on a $2 is better than $50 on a $25.
