    Wow skeptic! I've been through tons of those $20GR tickets without seeing a $500. To find two in a day is just incredible. Nice hit on the Florida Cash too.

    Did you take a run yet at any of the remaining 100X tickets?

      Nice tickets, skeptic.  Welcome back to the winner's circle.

      Really bit the bullet today.  Saw my buddy and quickly lost on 4 out of 4 Fantastic 5's.  Made one stop on the way home, and had a choice to make.  Let the girl open the package and buy the first of the Christmas tickets?  Nope.  This place is the only place I've seen the 200MS tickets in over a week.  Buy 3?  Nope.  Settled for 6 $5.00 gold rushes...#59 and 000-004. I got a winner!  Ticket 001 gave me a single match...for five bucks.  Disgusting! 

      Gonna spend my seven dollars tomorrow, then HAVE to call it quits until friday.  Sigh...

      Good fortune, everyone, and Skeptic, keep up the good work.

        Nice job skeptic.  It is great to have days like that.  I only have one rule with the Gold Rush games . . . never buy them.  I've given up getting a $500 prize a long time ago.  It is good to know that somebody hits them every now and then.

          This morning I went to Food and Lotto in Orlando (BTW this is the top lottery seller in the whole state of Florida) and to my surprise they had no scratch tickets, no lottery machine nothing related to lottery products. When I asked the older lady that appears to be one of the owner’s family member what happened she responded that the FL lottery took everything away and she didn’t know why. Now I doubt that’s true therefore I emailed the Fla Lottery but have yet to receive a response. I’m curious if there was foul play or what happened especially since this store has been in the news many times as the top retailer for the whole state.

          Also this means that that those 100x open books and all of the other open books, which they use to have at least 8+ open book of newer $20 tickets will all be destroyed? If so will the lottery re-print jackpot/prizes that were destroy into new print out of the game or just disregard, bring that into their profits, end the game early and not update their site taking out those prizes?

            A couple of weeks ago I sent an email to the Lottery Office of Inspector General asking them to look into what appeared to be preferential treatment (bias) toward this retailer. The Director of Sales for the Lottery provided a concise, polite response and explained well why Food and Lotto was still able to obtain 100X tickets. I felt the matter was closed, thanked the man for his response, and updated the OIG with an email of thanks while taking responsibility for the confusion myself.

            Curiously, a week or so later, Food and Lotto had their Lottery stocks pulled. Maybe the OIG looked into the place anyway and found something else they didn't like about "The Winningest Store."

            I'll be interested to know the Lottery's response to your email, williamd000.

            And you're right, any open books reclaimed by the Lottery would be destroyed. The closed ones will get re-circulated. No reprinting will be done to compensate for the lost tickets. It wouldn't be feasible to order such a small run of books, and if there are jackpots within those open books reclaimed (which could only be known by scanning every ticket), asking specifically to have those replaced within a tiny batch would probably leave a too much room (read: temptation) for corruption. Obviously I don't like that some large winners get destroyed occasionally, but I understand the general practice and the need for it. I do, however, hope the Lottery goes to the trouble of scanning the tickets and accounting for any such losses on their reports (I really have no idea if they do this or not).

              Thanks to all of you for your positive remarks about my wins !! Wish I could make daily reports like that.

              You mentioned 100X - the lottery answered my request several weeks ago "who has 100X tickets in my area ?" - they gave me three places/ locations/phone numbers.

              Two were more than a few miles away - I called all three - "YES we have 100X" when I got to each place, they didn't have any - showed me FlCash instead - thinking that's what I called about. I havn't seen any around here for quite a while. The lottery also told me about 14 places that "HAD THEM" in and around Tampa.

              That's too far to go only to find out they don't have them.

              wins: $10,000 Jubilee - $5,000 $200MS - 32 $1k's - 185 $500's - 5 $400's

                It's a shame you had that experience with the 100X tickets. Each of the locations the Lottery gave me actually had them when I got there.

                Still, looks like you're on a good run regardless.

                  heard they just reorganized or something but do not know if food and lotto lost their lotto license would be interesting to find out

                      Since I cannot find the 100X anywhere.  I have had to fall back on my next best option which is the $200MS.  After buying a few tickets every day or so off a roll near my job, I hit this little gem today. It is my first time hitting a $1k prize on a $10 ticket. 

                      $200MS 1k

                        Nice! As of a couple weeks ago there were only about 400 of those left at all. Great hit!
