I cannot find the 100x here, but I do know of a place with the 50x game.

    Found a Store that is still selling $5 Dollar High Roller Tickets. According to the Florida Lottery Website there is still 1 Prize left. I think they have like 20 left on the Roll. Should I buy them ? What?

    I personally get burnt whenever I play those much older tickets (08-2013). I think it is better to play the $5 Margaritaville over that ticket since Margaritaville still has half of the top prizes remaining, effectively a much bigger chance of hitting something nice. 

     

    I'd say go for it if you'd think you'd regret it. Worst case scenario, you get about $40-50 back.

      According to the FL Lottery Website, two more $1 million Fortune prizes have been claimed. I'm a little surprised because there hasn't been a facebook post about either.

        Thanks to all. I went back and Purchased 10 of the High Roller game, I also Purchased 2 $25 Fortune tickets. Got burned on both games.Thud

        Keep moving Forward.

          You won't find the 100X anywhere.  I asked for a list of retailers a little over a month ago.  About 15 retailers are listed in the entire state.  I called each one and spoke with a manager (or someone who has authority to look at their lotto inventory) and they all informed me that they do not have any 100X.  Basically the lotto rep removed the rolls a long time ago and never scanned them out of the retailer's inventory. 

          The 50X is rare, but some places still have them.

            It's ridiculous that FL Lottery hasn't ended the game then. Even if the 15 retailers still had the tickets, they should end the game after some short amount of time with that few rolls in circulation.

            I spoke to a lotto rep a few weeks back and I asked her what happens when a game ends with big prizes left. She said the money that isn't used in a game that is ended gets rolled into other games that are starting so that they can pay out large prizes before enough tickets have been sold to cover it from that game itself. Assuming this statement is accurate, and logically it makes sense, it disputes the notion that prizes are released in batches over time in some controlled manner. Maybe they are, but I don't see how the "random" aspect of games can be claimed if any release of games is controlled like this suggests. Plus, games have started and then sold a good share of the large prizes in just a few days or weeks time. Just look at the newest $5 game, barely over a month old and 50% of the grand prizes are gone.

              So did y'all see on fla lotterys website when you go to faq's and then go to reports they no longer have anything for scratchoffs. You used to be able to look and see what game won at what retailer and when it happened. Kinda fishy

                There's lots of "fishy" actions coming from the Florida Lottery. I wish it were more transparent about prizes, and odds like the Texas lottery. When I was an alternative winner for the Flamingo promotion, I called the day before the deadline to claim at 4:00pm. A woman said there were still a four unclaimed prizes. Now, I don't know if four people happened to claim their prizes between 4:00 and 4:30pm on the last day...but it seems a tad bit unlikely. The very next day they stated "all prizes have been claimed, thanks for continuing to play the lottery! 

                 

                Also, jackpots are often won without any Facebook, or newspost update. Two more $1 million dollar winners were found on the $25 Fortune ticket. Nothing published about them yet at least.

                  I noticed this as well. At first I thought it was just that they made the reports section harder to find, but they actually did remove the scratch-off reports entirely.

                  Considering the huge load of $hit they promote about Integrity Above All, this move is ridiculous. I'll be emailing the Inspector General's office about it. Some of you may want to as well.

                    My Question is , If the FL is Integral and Transparent and the game is truly Random as they swear on, why don't they post this information ? Please don't give me the Sh%t about players don't ask for it enough. They also don't ask for a bunch of other crap they have on their website , yet they post it anyways. What?

                    Keep moving Forward.

                      One thing I'd wish'd they'd disclose is how many of each prize for each scratch off was available in total as well as how many were claimed. The total claimed still isn't available but I realized I could find the total originally available by either: 1. Doing the math based on the odds. or 2. Using the "flrules" sheet they have to file for each game as I mentioned in the earlier post. It is weird they removed direct access to those other reports though. The reports still seem to be there, if you check the direct links. I can't post links on the forums since I'm still classified as a new user, but I checked and they are there.

                        Sorry for the double post.

                        It's actually not gone. It's been moved. If you go go "Play" and then click any of the dollar amounts for the scratch offs you'll see them listed on the right side of the screen that comes up.

                          I agree. It would be nice to know how many of the smaller prizes have been claimed. This could definitely help with the decisions form picking one ticket over another. 

                           

                          Looking at the jackpots, and locations they were won in is interesting. For the $1 Flamingo ticket, apparently 3 of the $10,000 jackpots was found within my city within the span of a week. (one pretty close to where I live Shocked)

                            Ah. You're right. They are there. Although removing them from the main reports page was idiotic. There's no reason the same reports can't be linked in both places.

                              Well today went better.  I bought tickets from two rolls of the $200MS at a store in Gainesville and I had these two winners among the results.  I gave some of the winnings back on the $10 holiday cash but overall a good day.

                              $1k win

                              $500 win
