    Just went to fill up for the week for work tomorrow.

    Stopped at the RaceTrac on SR 200 in Ocala. It looks like the 5 days of price-spiking that the gas-stations were doing (2.07 ~ 2.18) has come to an end with most of the areas here around 2.11 again. Routine maintenance my butt.

    Anyway I decided to play a Guy Harvey and gave my mom the $2 along with the cash for the gas (all the skimming going on at FL pumps has made me paranoid to using my card at the pump).

    She came back and also got 2 $2 Gold Rush Tickets. I was laughing because I was like "why are you buying more of these losers, wasn't 1 enough"?

    Anyway we get home and I scratch my Guy Harvey ticket. It's a loser (I think all of them have been). Mom does her's and it's a loser. She gives my grandma the other Gold Rush #146. Grandma's eyes are dim when scratching so I had to check it for her at the end. First, I thought she had won $5 when I saw a matching number but then I saw another and another and realized they were all either a 1 or 14. It was a $50 winner on a $2 ticket!

    I looked at the odds. $50 on a $2 GR is around 1 in 189, slightly lower than the 1 in 197 for $500 on the $20 ticket, but I've never come across a $500 winner ever.

      After cashing in my smaller winners this morning I bought ten Super Millions tickets. Nine were duds (eight in a row and maybe more still on the roll). The single winner I got was for $200. So, I broke even.

          So, I spent the day (along with the last few days) searching the panhandle for Shimmering 7's. Only found a single store near Panama City that had any and they only had 24 of them. Most were busts, but I came away with $90 from the set. Had a nice single hit for $50 at the end.

           

          There was something else too. At a little gas station in Sopchoppy in the middle of nowhere, I found half a roll of 100X tickets (21 to be exact). Imagine my amazement! I bought them all. There were fifteen duds  in those 21 tickets, but I still pulled $25, $30, $40, $40, $50, and one nice prize of $1000. I scratched each card thinking "Come on million! Come on million!" but alas, it wasn't there. I've been to every retailer I could find, having driven a spider web between Lake City and Panama City, and I would be very surprised if a final winner or two comes out of this part of the state on either 100X or Shimmering 7's. My quest for those is done.

           

           

          *Last note: I thought I might have a go at the $5 Lucky Loot game while I was out. Bought twenty tickets from a single roll. Eighteen were duds, and the other two only hit for $5 each. Even the $1k hit earlier in the day didn't take the sting out of that run of junk. I need a new game to focus on now.

          Great win on 100X !!  I've been trying to find some in my area and no luck. I even had the lottery service agent check through his computer but nothing showed up.

          Nice one Mr.Gray !

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

                Wow!  Outstanding wins, Kfla, Mr. Gray, and Gatorsrok.  Maybe you guys could send some love down to highlands county?  Friday I spent twenty, lost twenty while getting an oil change in Avon Park.  Stopped at a place on the way home, got 3 200MS.  Looser, 20, 10.  Almost home, got 4 different 10.00 tickets, all loosers.

                Keep up the good work gentlemen, enjoy the hunt.

                  You know how I said I was going to stop hunting Shimmering 7's? I lied.

                   

                  Will update with results once all the scratching is done!

                          There were actually 104 tickets. Only one of the books was full.

                          And, unfortunately, I didn't have a single winner higher than $50 in the bunch. Had two diamond WinAll hits within three tickets and both were filled with $2.00 prizes and couple of $5.00. Total spent was $520; total returned was $350. Could have been far worse, but man was I looking for that last big win.

                          I'm going to annoy some clerk now too because most of the wins were for $5 or $10, so I have a ton of tickets to scan.

                              Cashed in the winnings from the Shimmering 7's and while at the store bought five of the $10 50X The Cash (tickets 004-008).

                              It played like this:

                              004: $15.00

                              005: bust

                              006: $100.00

                              007: $25.00

                              008: $20.00

                               

                              Four winners in five tickets. $50 spent, $160 returned.

                              Question now is, just how hot is this roll? And how much do I want to spend to find out? ... ... ...
