Easy mistake to make lol....almost did same and figured was the case. 

Wonder if they have released all remaining winning tickets to let the 10,000,000 cash sell out quickly so the 10,000,000 fortune can replace it or will 10,000,000 cash die a slow death?  What have you all seen in the past?

Well, it certainly isn't paying off here. I think they will keep Florida Cash on the shelf as long as they still have 5+ jackpots available for the $1 million prize. They are still making plenty of profit off that game. The payoffs have been seeming worse on all games in my area lately. Disgustingly poor payouts that make players not want to play anymore. Even gestures like being selected an "alternative" winner for the Flamingo drawing, calling the day before (at closing) and hearing there are (4 unclaimed prizes) and then receiving an email the next day saying "Sorry, all prizes were claimed" doesn't change the sentiment. 

I've noticed I can't find the $10 Holiday gift anymore at any store in my area, which I find to be odd. Did they decide to pull this game, and keep the 2 jackpots? Wouldn't surprise me...still odd they're selling the $1, $2, and even $5 Holiday Gift tickets in my area (Which have substantially smaller and less jackpots remaining...fishy....) 

 

Got 8x Florida Cash (two different rolls). 1 winner for $30, out of 8 tickets. ($170 loss)

 

Got 6x Misfortune tickets. 2 winners for $30 ea. (So $110 loss...)

 

Got 4x $20 Flamingo Multiplier tickets. ALL LOSERS. 

 

I tried playing some lotto since it was pay day, and I think I'm done playing for at least a month after this losing streak.

      It has been a while since I've tried this old ticket. Decided to give it a try tonight and first one hit this...

        Nice hit! I'm starting to see alot more rolls of that ticket around where I live. It seems the FL lottery is trying to sell them off. 

         

        I've had bad experiences with that game, with some rolls having as many as 8 duds in a row. And then a "$20-$25" winner comes along to break the losing spree.

          Thanks. And I hear ya, I think we've all probably experienced the same, no matter what game it is. Sorry to hear about your losses earlier!

          While I was waiting in line to cash that 500, I started chatting with the guy behind me asking if he has had any luck on the Fl cash or fortune and same old story of nothing much. He did mention he hit 10 mil on a scratcher in Massachusetts so that was cool to actually meet someone who has hit big.

Nice wins guys seems like they come in waves with winners I even looked at the win Ben that they keep the tickets that are winners and it was empty. Really will be taking a break I'm sure when I play again I will hit big bc that's how it always works lol.

              Really sorry to hear that Luckjax.  The fact that you seem to maintain a positive attitude and outlook is pretty great though.  Best of luck and hope you hit a really big one soon.

                Pretty amazing the amount of top prize winners that keep bubbling up at Publix.. of course it's all about volume, but still seems too many.  Makes me want to  only buy tickets at Publix, but of course it makes no difference from a single case basis/perspective where you play.

                  Got the following tickets this morning:

                   

                  $1 Flamingo Multiplier - Loser

                  $2 Flamingo Multiplier - $10 winner 

                  $5 Flamingo Multiplier (#30-32) - $5 winner, $10 winner, and $20 winners (three winners in a row, wow!)

                  4x $20 Flamingo Multipliers (#21-24) - ALL LOSERS

                   

                  It seems like the $5 tickets can sometimes pay off much better than the bigger ones.

                      I only play the cheaper games $1-$5 and never have bought a $10 ticket. We won $2000 on the $2500 A Week For Life and bought only 2 tickets. I do it for the fun of scratching and have won $100 many times on $2 tickets.

                        That's a good philosophy, and it seems to be working for you. Do you only buy a couple at a time? I think I'm done playing tickets over $5 after my recent losing streak with the $20-$25 tickets.

                          Guys to be dead honest with yea I would stay away from the $25 tickets they are bad and the Florida cash is even worst I know it's hard to stay away. Trust me I know but there are way to many duds. I can tell you the odds on the new $25 are way wrong I have to buy 3 to 5 tickets just to win $25 dollars. They need to pull this game and come out with something new not the florida cash ticket in blue.

                            Yeah, I'm absolutely done with $25 tickets after this recent losing spree. You're absolutely right, it is just not worth it. People remember their "big wins", but forget how much they've lost chasing wins or going negative on a regular basis. Some people find the needle in the haystack, but most of these tickets are duds with the occasional $50-$100 winner each book and the frequent $25 after several duds. 

                             

                            Anyone who uses basic math can see that in an outing, it is very easy to lose half and eventually all of the money you put in when you buy these big tickets. I've won $500 6 times, $1000 1 time, and I think I'm still down about $2,500-$3,000 from playing scratchoffs. 

                             

                            I'm not playing anymore for at least two weeks until next payday, and when I do, I'm going to slow down by only playing $2, and $5 tickets (with a $10 cap a day).

                              You're right about that Luckyjax - I hit a 200 and 100 yesterday on Fortune - back to back. The other day I bought 600 worth !! Don't ask what I won -I'm ashamed to tell you. I played a hunch today (thinking I would get a$1K on Fortune) so I dug deep and bought 800 worth. (I need to get my head examined:) Guess what the results were - two double $20's - two $30's and a few $25's. lost about 600 ....... never before have I run across such a horsesh1t return - plus duds and duds. I've played scratchers for some 15 years and never got such crappy returns as FORTUNE - followed by FlCash - the second dud champion !

                              BILLION DOLLAR BLOCKBUSTER - JUBILEE - MILLIONAIRES CLUB - GOLD RUSH TRIPLER - THE OLD GOLD RUSH - $200 MS - were great games without the dud after dud crap. IMO the Florida Lottery has posted decent $500 win odds for FORTUNE and FLCASH - but I wonder if these odds are correct. It doesn't seem like it. Does it guys ??

                              I used to keep score of how much and how many tickets I'd buy - tabulate the wins from number bought and it wasn't anything like the number of duds I'm getting now from FORTUNE and FLACASH - something doesn't feel right ( I only play20/25 $ tickets - exception was $200 MS a $10 game) - I got the most $500 wins from GRT - I don't know why -

                              I'm tired of getting my clock cleaned with FORTUNE/FLCASH - I feel like quitting all together.......

                              What's your take ?

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