    Nice wins skeptic.  I have been focusing mostly on the Super Millions and having minimal luck.  Maybe one of my raffle tickets will pay-off this week.

          I can't explain it - FlCash is HOT right now at the two Publix I've been buying tickets this week.

          Couple $500's - $400's -$200's - over a dozen $100's - but I can't get anything over $500 !!

          Bet when this last delivery of tickets sells out we'll be back to dud after dud.

          Here's a pic of a couple wins from today .....

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

                Do you consistently buy whole packs? There would be no other explanation as to why you routinely post so many winners. Either that or just the best luck in the entire world many, many times over. Either way, great wins...but those come with a price--no pun intended.

                  If I might explain, there are a few things at play here:

                   

                  1) Gross purchases of sequential tickets (in Florida, anyway) have displayed a slight pattern regarding books being what we describe as either hot or cold. So that the Lottery can spit in our faces by announcing record profits every month, the cold books (heavy losers) significantly outweigh the hot ones (heavy winners). There are some average books in the middle, but they do seem to be weighted often enough to one side or the other (hot vs cold).

                  2) skeptic, being willing to risk significant losses, has the ability to buy enough tickets to find the occasional hot book. Hence the posts. I expect skeptic's play style is like that of tORMENtOR who posts in the general results thread.

                  3) Luck is still part of it. Sometimes you just hit the right book(s). But repeated "luck" comes at a cost. Historical posts show that skeptic is no more immune than the rest of us to stacking up losses.

                  Luck can be nudged, though. Not by much if you're going for big wins, but, at least a little. Part of that involves choosing a game that seems ready to pay out and sticking to it. Another part, as I mentioned in a recent post, is that if you're going to buy lots of tickets, it's wise to buy a small portion of a given book first. If there's a good win ($500+ on $20 tickets) the book is probably (not always) worthy of continued play. Otherwise, fold it up and go home. This was recommended to me by someone who, let's just say, isn't permitted to play.

                   

                  skeptic concentrates play, buys lots of tickets, and keeps his eye out for hot books. There's a lot of risk, but it's been mitigated to the extent possible. Sometimes he wins and we get to see some tickets. Other times, he gets just as frustrated by losses as anyone.

                      Skeptic has won 144 $500 winners!  So you can only imagine how many tickets he/she buys.

                        Strange. Never seen a ticket like the one on the right with the same numbers. You're wins are almost like deja vu from a couple yrs ago.

                            KFla - you are doing better than me.  I'm about to boycott Super Millions.  I've bought about 10 of those tickets in the last week and only had one $20 winner.  It has been awful.  The raffle gave me no relief either.

                              I've said time and again that Super Millions is a sham. I won 500$ on it once, but that was a long time ago. I will only buy one of that game at a time,and that's very rarely. I don't bother playing much anymore because my favorite games Flamingo Fortune and 100X the Cash seem to be long gone.
