        so I went to the Marathon next to my job yesterday afternoon, and got quite a surprise...found a book of High Roller's!  Haven't seen them here in a long time.  Got four of them, #008-011.  8 and 10 lost, while 9 gave up a single match for 5.00 and 11 gave me 5 matches @ 2.00 each.  Lost 5.00, but it's all good.  Think I'll try them again in a few hours...

          Wondering why 200MS is better than for instance $10 GR or 50X, as both of these have more top prizes remaining.

            Two of my regular stores still have them, but you're right, they're getting rare. In all my hunting throughout the panhandle last week I found High Roller at very few places.

            Bring on the Bens is going that way too, along with Lucky Red 7's and Big Money. I saw these at maybe one store in ten.

            High Roller I probably saw at one store in twenty. Flamingo is about the same.

            Monopoly Park Place Payout and Lucky Loot are starting to dwindle as well. They're a little more frequent than the others, but they won't be for long.

            All of these games have a top prize left (two in the case of Lucky Loot).

             

            The $5 game that perplexes me right now is The Price is Right. Two $250k prizes left and yet it might be the rarest of the bunch (with the exception of the Shimmering 7's). I found that ticket almost nowhere. My guess is that it just didn't sell that well and retailers simply stopped ordering it.

             

            I think the best buy at the moment in the $5 games [aside from Shimmering 7's if you can find them] is Flamingo. Comes with a bonus of the ticket being rather pleasant to scratch. It seems like there's a lot of wax between the cardboard and the surface material so it scratches off smoothly. The polar opposite of $200k A Year for Life which you need a dremel and a cutting disc for.

              The idea is that over time the Lottery has gotten greedier and greedier. Some of us (myself included) feel that the newer the ticket the worse it is at paying back regular players. $200MS is very old but there are still a lot of tickets out there on account of it being reordered by the Lottery (over-ordered in fact). Some of the members on the forum have had landed some great hits on it over the years.

              Right now I'm playing 50X because it's been good to me lately, but I'll probably return to $200MS soon (or choose a diminishing $5 game to chase).

                Thanks for the info MrGray.  I see also the 200MS has a 20,000 secondary prize which seems to be rare for a $10 (don't think any of the currentish $10 tickets have a 20,000 secondary prize).

                  I ended up buying the rest of that 50X book. It was certainly hot for the first half of the roll, but the Lottery took its money back toward the end.

                  [Including the 004-008 numbers from yesterday] Here's how it played:

                      Haven't bought many tickets lately. Maybe one every two weeks. So far 0-2 on the new flamingo $20 ticket. Bought a super millions tonight #27 and hit for $100. Split it with a friend so I didn't take a pic.

                      You gotta be in it to win it.

                          Great win! By the way, per stores carrying the 100X The Cash tickets... All you have to do is locate your branch district lottery offixe on the flalottery website and email the person listed and ask them for stores that carry it with your zip code and they send you all the stores within your area and a 30 mile radius. 

                          I live in Miami and he sent me like 4 stores that I never knew existed that had lotto tickets....'he was very kind and went out of his way for me. 

                           

                          Intried copying and pasting, butbwouldnt let me
