Wow! Sorry to hear that Skeptic! FL lottery is really gashing you guys. 

I think you guys have more influence than you think. If everyone here cut back and the lurkers who just look at this page will notice the bad luck and not play either. I am proof. I  vacationed in Florida and planned on buying some tickets. I  only bought 2 because of reading your complaints. One won $40 & the other nothing. I cashed in my $40 win and ran. I figured I was lucky and better quit. Good luck to you guys.

    Skeptic, I am sorry to hear that as well. I wanted to weigh in on how lousy the Texas Lottery was as well. The other day I was buying a $20 ticket called 100X. Anyway, I purchased them from a machine and spent $220 (that's right, 11 freaking tickets ). So, on the 12th ticket I won $100 and I go cash it in. This nosy man says "What did you win?" I said "I just won something small". He looks at the machine that tells how much the prize is and says "If I were you I would be happy with $100".  I just ignored him. It ticked me off because I will not be happy with $100 when I play every day and that is the most I have won in a long time. Also, last week I played a $5 ticket at a grocery store and won $50. The cashier looks at me and says "Wow, you are really cleaning up". She was being serious. Whoever said these tickets are like cardboard crack is correct. It is down right ridiculous that the big prizes are far away from where any of us live. So, that is my rant for the evening. Good luck to everyone still playing.

            Skeptic to be real with yea its prob a good thing you got worked on crap FL Lotto. It made you realize how bad they are and sometimes it takes a ass whooping to get that scratch itch to go away. Save your cash or you can send me a $1000 and I'll send you $500 back better odds then FL Lotto. ;)

                  Early this morning I found a nearly full roll of Shimmering 7's. Been hunting that one as there's a single top prize left and they're getting very hard to find. Bought 47 tickets, #013-#059.

                  Ultimately, it was $235 spent, $205 returned. Pretty <snip> good considering the last time I went out with a couple hundred bucks I got all of $15 back.

                  Within the pack I had two losing streaks that were seven tickets long, and one four-ticket winning streak from 047-050 that won $140.

                  Most of the winners were $10. This was the best hit:

                    *So, I went back through the stack double-checking the losers and actually the longest losing streak was ten duds in a row (#022-#031). If I'd only bought those ten (as I've done in the past when getting burned by other games), I'd be rather unhappy right now.

                      Let me tell you I think those odds of 1 in 197 on the new GR you quoted is a misprint. I went through a couple hundred GR's and the highestt was ONE Gold Bar.

                      Steve the midget went through some 6 or 7 books since the game came out and he got just ONE $500.

                      GRT had about the same odds for $500 and I literally cleaned house getting $500's. Never got any higher than $500 though. Got six GRT $500's in one day.

                      So tell me the odds you quoted on GR are accurate - I can't figure it out ....

                      I would like to hear from someone on here who had good luck getting $500's on the new GR. Come on 'fes up :)

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

                        I hit two $500 in the same day 3 months ago out of three tics. Two different stores and I don't know what the odds are I would say there close or the best bc I win more $500 on GR then the other ones. Just bc you buy 3 rolls or 100 GR tics at a time is not guaranteed $500. The Lotto likes  to stick them all together ask the guy on here with the 3 tics in a row for $1550 that's crazy why not split that up. They seem to stick the winners all in one place and the duds are sent somewhere else. Prob to high volume sales.

                          Hey LUCK - I'm from Missouri as they say - show me !  When someone says they won three $500's in a row let's see the posted photos. I don't want to hear "I cashed them so quick I didn't have time to post" " I don't know how to post pics on here " or some other lame excuse - I have a big box full of my wins for proof of what I said I won. If they don't post pics I don't believe.

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

                            Over the last several months I've probably been through about sixty of the $20 Gold Rush tickets and while I've gotten a few $100's I've yet to see anything higher. I will say this about that game, it hasn't treated me nearly as bad as Florida Cash. I'll occasionally still buy a GR ticket, but outside of the rare whim I won't be playing into the Florida Cash game anymore.

                            Played a few of the Lucky $200k For Life tickets again the other day too. Reminded myself real quick why I stopped playing those.

                            Right now it's either $200MS or the aging $5 tickets for me.

                              very easy why they dont split them up, easier to manage what money is out there and easier to direct them into the ecomonically depressed areas.  aka targeted distribution

                              biggest hit 10k, Jubilee, 5K Miami Heat, 2K Emerald 8s, 1k jubilee, 1k GRT, 1k heat wave, multiple 500's

                              good luck in the chase 2013 wins, maybe 4 500's
