    That's how it used to be in Pinellas County also. All of my 500$+ wins seemed to be close together, but it's been a while since that's happened here. I bought 1 20$ Flamingo and 3 GR... all losers.

      Let me share two tips for scratchers 

      1. Always ask what number the ticket is on most of the winning tickets will always began with 0 when you walk in a convienient store and they have all those winners on the wall the majority will always begin with 0..
      2. A winner will mostly be on ,before or after a double that's another reason to ask what number the ticket is on..

        The input is appreciated, but from my experience, having played quite a lot over the last decade or so, it makes no difference whatsoever what number a ticket is on. Sometimes you win big on low numbers and say to yourself "This game wins on low numbers!" only to try buying low for a while and get repeatedly burned, and vice versa.

        As far as a leading 0 on tickets: all of the tickets in Florida $5 and above will always have a leading 0. Every ticket in every book. This is because there are 40-60 tickets per book depending on the denomination and the ticket numbers are always based in triple digits. The lower dollar tickets have more than 100 tickets per book and are therefore the only ones that will ever have a portion of tickets without a leading 0.

          Well I was getting murdered last night and this morning on the $200k Year for Life and $200 MS.  I even bought a few $20 Gold Rush (all losers, as always).  Finally I got desperate and bought one of the new $20 Flamingo tickets and got a decent winner.  Despite the $400 win, I'm only up about $50 after the earlier losses.

          $400 win flamingo

              Even the $3 tickets have a leading "0" with the range "000" to "099" for the standard 100 tickets packs...

                I got timed out to post !  So here it is again - $200MS started in 2008 - that's like 7 years ago - the lottery says the game WILL END in 2018 !!

                What's with this game that they will keep it alive for 10 years when the old GR and GRT , Jubliee, Milliionaires Club plus other great $20 games were ended in a year or two ? I did great with $200MS 4 years ago - 1 $5K - some 13 $500's and 5 $1000's. The last couple times I played I only got a $100 for the high win -  a few 10's and 20's ....... I know there are 2 top prizes left out of 20. That means that on average around 2 plus games were won each year. Other games have 10 -20 top wins in a year or two. I would like to see someone here get a $500 or more ....... the lottery will not print second tier prizes - my guess is that $200MS has run out of decent wins or the lottery is feeding new higher wins.

                What's your take on this game ?

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

                  you will think im crazy but i think they sell the losing tickets and then reprint the losing tickets to keep the odds at what they have published.  Same with the high roller $5 game, why is it still around. just bought 6 GR yep you guessed all losers.  Its time the attorney general look into the lottery.

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

                    I always forget those $3 tickets even exist.

                      First I have posted pics of $500s and $1000 on this site second if you don't want to believe me then no hard feelings I really don't have any reason to lie about $500 winnings. But I will post the pics of the $500s from three months ago.

                        What's your take on this game ?

                        I'll send the Lottery a request for the Instant Liability Report on $200MS. It'd be nice to see what's what with that game. We'll see how long it takes them to furnish the data. If/when I get it, I'll report back with the info.

                        I'll probably buy a bunch of $200MS tomorrow (twenty or so). Maybe I'll get lucky and post that $500 you're looking for.

                        On a side note, I was looking at the website for the Lottery in North Carolina and saw that they provide an up-to-date list of the prizes remaining at every prize level for each game right there on the website. Sure would be nice if Florida did that. No reason they couldn't, the coding is ridiculously easy and they clearly already have the reporting set up.

                              I use tinypic when I post images. Just visit the site, upload, click through to the full size image, copy the web address of the image itself, and then click the "Insert/edit image" button on the post tools here and paste the web address into the url field. Easy and free.
