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 ?

I remember seeing all of your $500 posts from Gold Rush Tripler. 

 

Have you tried playing smaller games $1-$5? I've gotten burnt recently, and I'm shifting over to those games as a way to ease down. Maybe you might try doing the same. Maybe try allocating a smaller amount of money on the side for scratchoff tickets (ex; $20-$50 a week) and buy a random variety of tickets.

    I agree 100% with you Skeptic I don't enjoy buying them anymore I don't get that rush of a big winner comming. I buy tickets now just to try to win my money back. I know by me not playing for a good while won't hurt the Lottery but if we are hurting then others are too. If I was super rich I would buy 10 books of the shi% $25 tics and see what the odds really are. But I wish everyone good luck and look forward to seeing your wins. Yes I'm sick I spent $600 easy of hard earned money my stomach is just sick I'm done with days like this lol

      I usually spent $15 or so when I stop. I spent $20 today and won $5 on $500,000 Gold Rush and lost on all the others. I bought $2 ones and one $2500 for life.

        Well, I got a decent win on the GR today.  I've been focused mostly on the $2M Holiday and $200MS games but I have not had any real luck.  At least this does some damage control.  Skeptic and Luckjax, sorry to hear about your losses on the $25 games.  I haven't bought more than 4 tickets in the new $25 game.  They were all losers so I stopped.  Also, CheapScratcher, keep up the good work on the $1/$2 tickets if you are having luck.  But I would avoid the $2,500 for life game because all of the top prizes have been awarded.

        $500 gr win

          Haven't been around much because I am in the middle of a big move. Over the past 2 weeks, I've bought about 15 of the new Fortune tickets, and my biggest win was $40 back to back. No luck at all on Gold Rush or 200K/Yr for Life either.

                  Did you win those two tickets on the same roll? Back to back.

                        Whew, today was not good.  I found the $200MS at a 7-11 near my house so I decided to cash in some winning tickets to buy some.  I kept chasing because I thought there had to be some good wins somewhere, but I was sorely mistaken.  It's been a while since I took this bad of a beating in one sitting.

                        I bought tickets 24 through 59 (35 tickets total).  I had 4 totals wins:  $10, $10, $20, $30.  $70 back on 4 tickets after spending $350 on 35 tickets. 

                        I'm glad other people on here had some good luck over the past week.

                          The district offices sell scratch offs right? Do they sell limited games or do they carry a lot of different ones?


                          Thank you

                            I've got to take another break from the Florida Lottery.  Way too many duds in circulation.  Scratching tickets used to be a lot of fun and exciting.  Now the experience is depressing and rather frustrating as we can see that the advertised odds are a lie.  I'm headed back to the casino next week to see if I can do better than the lottery. 

                            This morning's losses.

                            3 x $25 $200,000,000 Fortune - all losers

                            3 x $25 Florida Cash - all losers

                            2 x $20 Gold Rush - won $20 and a loser

                            2 x $20 Super Millions - won $20 and a loser

                            $190 in losses

                              Hey wbrightfl am really sorry you're having this crappy luck -  they must not be putting any hot or even luke rolls your way.

                              I get that way wanting to take a break - it helps me digest the losers. Good Luck at the casino !!

                              the other day I bought TWO and got #27, #28 - $200 and $100 ....... BACK TO BACK

                              Might be a sign some good hits have been distributed, at least here ...... FINALLY

                              wins: $10,000 Jubilee - $5,000 $200MS - 31 $1k's - 183 $500's - 5 $400's
