I know this is for scratchers but I just has my biggest win ever at the Hard Rock Casino in Tampa.

Slot machines its a matter of being on the right machine at the right time.  Same as scratchers, finding the right roll at the right time.  I left the casino with a little over $9,000 this trip.  Usually I lose playing slots, but do okay playing blackjack.

Wow, congratz on that big win! :) 

 

I played many scratchers today.

 

Got 15 of those $10 Holiday Gift tickets- 12 of them were duds, with a $20 winner, and two $10 winners. - $130. 

 

Bought 5 $20 Flamingo Mulipliers. Won $100 on one, $25 on another, and $50 on another. The other two were duds. + $135

 

Bought 3 $20 Gold Rush tickets. Lost on two, won $100 on one.  +$60

 

Bought 6 Florida Cash tickets. All 6 were duds. WTF? - $150. 

 

I should have stuck to my rule of only playing up to $5 tickets now...

    I had similar luck with scratchers today.  Won some on the $20 Flamingo Multiplier, lost on the Florida Cash.   Florida Cash has become terrible lately.

      Nice win!  I hit that same combo many years ago in Vegas and won $1,500 (on a quarter slot).  The good news is that you may now be able to deduct some of your scratch-off ticket losses if you itemize taxes in 2016.

        I have $10,000+ in scratch losses saved so I am covered for sure.

            Publix in Metrowest Orlando purchased 8 x $20 Flamingo Multiplier

            #3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10 losers.  Won $20 back on #8 = -$140.  Seriously bad roll.

              The Flamingo games are trash in my opinion.

                I did the same thing today. I think I won maybe $20 back after 5 $20 Flamingo multipliers. 

                 

                I bought 5 $20 Gold Rush, and all 5 were duds. WTF? I have better luck with $5 tickets...

                 

                I've literally snapped my debit card in half, and I'm done playing Lotto games. Buying a ticket here or there could be fun/lucrative, but buying several $20 tickets almost always seems to result in getting burnt.

                 

                OH, and I also bought 10 of the $5 Flamingo Multiplier games earlier. Guess what!? ALL of them were losing tickets. Absolute trash scratchoff games. I lost all my profit, and I think I'm probably in the hole 1k for playing scatchoffs. At least I supported some scholarships, which I benefited from when I graduated from UF a couple years ago.

                      Sorry for your bad luck today. I bought three of those $20 flamingos and only one won for $20. Not what I was hoping for! Are you sure you checked those losing $20 Flamingos, $20 GR's and $5 Flamingos. According to the overall odds, it's about 1:3 for the $20 games and 1:4 for the $5 games. Theoretically, you should have had 1 winning $20 Flamingo, 1 winning $20 GR and at least 2 winning $5 Flamingos. Good Luck.

                          Ehh, I wouldn't go to The Hard Rock Casino(cheating S.O.B's). Have you or your wife heard of Victory Casino Cruises ? Much better place to spend your money.

                          I agree on the scratch off tho, I only play $2 & $5. $10 & $20 are to much of an investment on one ticket imo.

                          Yeah but her Aunt has a free night stay there soooo, guess they gonna do a girls night so I still lose, lol. Victory Casino is out of Mayport, right?

                          Jan Powerball pool contributions -$194 + $38 win = - $156 Net;  Feb -$320 TBD

                            I've double checked them. I guess I just ran into some very bad luck today. I entered the Flamingo tickets in the second chance drawing, but doubt I'll win anything. On the facebook page, there were people with more than 2k+ entries during the first drawing.

                             

                            Anyway, I guess I need to learn not to splurge and to be more responsible in buying small tickets here and there.

                              Well I decided to buy some of the $10 Holiday tickets and that didn't go as well as I had hoped.  But I bought two Gold Rush tickets and that paid off.  01 was a loser but 02 had this nice winner:

                              $500 win
