I haven't had as rough a time with the Flamingo ones as others on here seem to. $5's haven't been great but overall not that bad.

Side note: There's a gas station I went by that sells something in the range of 60-65 different tickets. Based on a few comments on here, some of you would really like the place.

Wow, that's an insane number of rolls! Where is this gas station located?

        I got burnt really hard today chasing wins.

         

        After depositing the $1k win from Florida Cash, I decided to withdraw $300 to test my luck again playing Florida Cash and Gold Rush. 

         

        I purchased 4 Florida Cash tickets, ALL DUDS. 

        I purchased 8 Gold Rush Tickets, 1 $20 winner. - $180. 

         

        $20 back after spending $300.

        I went to my bank, got $200 more. I bought 5 more $20 Gold Rush, and 4 more Florida Cash.

        Won $50 on 1 Florida Cash, and $20. - $130.

         

        I bought $130 worth of $20 Flamingo Multipliers. ALL DUDS. 

         

        Lost half of my $1k winning. I'm not playing anymore scratchers until the new $25 game comes out next Tuesday. The amount of duds out there seems crazy. You have to really be at the right place at the right time like that man was I met earlier who won $10k on the $5 Flamingo Multiplier. I think the Florida Lottery has placed duds in my location after all the $500 winners.

          When I win 500-1000$ I stop playing for about a week or two. The odds of repeat success are dismal. Usually you win it all in the span of 2-3 days, and after that it's loss after loss trying to find another win.

            You're absolutely right. I feel like such an idiot. I won $500 five times on $20 Gold Rush within the past week, and the $1k win on Florida Cash.

             

            What do I have to show from my winnings? Maybe $300 left over in profit from that, and 800+ entries for the next Flamingo Multiplier drawing. Confused I literally burned through all that profit buying Florida Cash, and Gold Rush duds. 

             

            I think I have a gambling problem addiction. I threw my debit card underneath my bed, and I wont be allowed to touch it for a couple of weeks. I'll buy 1 or 2 of the new $25 tickets when it comes out, but my recent winning and losing spree has opened my eyes as to how dangerous gambling can be.

              Good question. I didn't see any news update. There were 2 top prizes remaining for a long time, and then I think within the past few days the number dropped down to 1 top prize of $10 million. No news story has been posted about it yet, however. 

               

              With only 1 $10 million prize left for Florida Cash, it is possible that the last one has been lost with how long the game has been out. There's still 12 $1 million prizes remaining. 

               

              When the new $25 ticket comes out, I don't see too many people continuing to play Florida Cash with the new ticket offering comparable odds. Then again, I'm assuming the odds will be comparable based on the number of top prizes and "cash prizes" advertised on the ticket image. We know very well how bad some new tickets can be. I've seen people say you have a better shot at getting struck by Florida lightning than winning $500 on the $20 Flamingo Multiplier, haha.

                  Shameful and outrageous then that they did not appropriately update the /remainingPrizes page for Florida Cash for 2 months (as Gatorsrok indicated).

                  Hey Dracos, so did that guy buy the 10k winner at the machine at the district office, or did he just happen to be cashing a 10k $5 Flamingo winner at the district office?

                    He was coming in to cash in on the ticket. He told me he purchased it at a gas station in Palm Coast, and that he has won $10k on $5 tickets before several times in the past along with numerous $500 and $1k wins on $5 tickets. 

                     

                    Guys, I'm done playing scratchoffs for a while. I'm also planning on attending some gambler' anonymous meetings to help with transitioning out of this addiction so that it is more controllable. My recent spree has left me a bit concerned. I may be slightly ahead, but the temptation and compulsions of wanting to buy more scratchoffs is becoming a problem for me. I think it is a neat hobby, but I have such an addictive personality that I have to be very intentional about controlling this problem before it gets out of hand.

                        Well I finally got a decent prize on the $10 Holiday ticket.  Unfortunately, I fell victim to the allure of the $25 Florida Cash.  I bought 8 Florida Cash (ticket nos. 32-39) and got one winner of $25.  I think I'm just going to stick with the $200MS, $10 Holiday ticket and the $20 Gold Rush (due for a big hit soon).

                            Got my second $500 winner this week on Florida cash. But felt pretty sick after. Reason for feeling sick was bc I always stop at the local shell station on my way to work and two days ago I walked in around 6:45 am and was going to cash my $30 winner and buy a gold rush which I have been playing on this GR roll the whole week did OK on it. But I for some reason told myself I would just cash it in on my break at work. So I got my coffee and went to work. Came back on my break and my buddy said your not going to believe this but 15min after you left guy came in and bought a gold rush hit for 100k ... I felt like I was going to puke I can't look at tickets last two days I have been just sick.
