Not as impressive as Skeptic's Monopoly win, but I'll take it.  I got burned to the tune of $200 on the $200MS and this went a long way to make up for that.  It was a one and done deal which just made it that much sweeter.  Good luck to everyone else. 

On a side note, I bought two of the Wheel of Fortune tickets.  After looking at the last few posts, I realized I was one of those people who forgot to check the bonus spot.  Unfortunately, they were still both duds.

    Gratz Ghost, Lucid, and my fellow Gator! Glad to see you guys are finding some nice winners. I hope someone here hits a really nice one soon. 

     

    I'm taking a couple weeks break at least until next pay day. I'm thinking of sticking with the $5 tickets, or possibly going back to the $20 Gold Rush despite it only having 1 remaining top prize. Does anyone know how many of the $100k, $10k, $5k, and $1k prizes are still out there on that game?

      Holiday Gifts Book #1 

       

      Total number of winners: 18 

      Largest number of consecutive losers: 9 in a row...

      Winning numbers: 000, 1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 11, 15, 22, 27, 31, 32, 34, 37, 47, 50, 53, 58 

      Highest winner: $30 

      Total back: $295 

       

      Overall, very disappointed at the return. I didn't see more than 1 or 2 symbols in this book. I guess I was lucky weeks ago when I was buying these tickets...

       

      Holiday Gifts Book #2 

      Total number of winners: 19 

      Largest number of consecutive losers: 5 (pretty evenly spread out) 

      Winning numbers: 3, 5, 9, 10, 13, 17, 18, 23, 25, 28, 29, 32, 36, 40, 46, 50, 52, 57, 59 

      Highest winner: $100 (on ticket #59) 

      Total back: $415 (a much better return, around what I ws expecting from both books. 

       

      I would say I was a bit unlucky as I got two $40 prizes which are rarer than the $100 prize. 

       

      I bought 6 Wheel of Fortune tickets, and got $50 back. (See the picture I posted for the lame $50 "win all" ticket. 

      I bought 2x Florida Cash, both losers. 

      Bought 1x "50x the cash", loser. 

       

      I didn't take any pictures, because there wasn't anything really "impressive" to take a photo of. The $100 winner is just a 3 number match, similar to the ones I posted a few weeks back. Overall, this was my "crazy gambling spree" for the month. I think I'm done playing the $10 Holiday Gift tickets. While there are few in circulation remaining, they seem very hard to find outside of district lottery offices. The recent return rate has been almost as bad as the Misfortune ticket, and "Florida ***" =p. I think I might go back to playing the $20 Gold Rush despite there only being $1 top jackpot left, and/or the Misfortune ticket when I do play. The new wheel of fortune ticket is tough to scratch.

      This is par for the course on these books.  1 horrible one with long losing streaks, followed by a "ok" but still losing book that is much more evenly spread out. Its exactly what I have experienced with this game...

        Nice one gator! Does anyone imagine there may still be one top prize and one secondary top prize still put there in this one?

            found some $200MS at a small mom/pop store I never stopped at before - bought 5 tickets and won this - was thinking about going back for more but this might have been the highest one in the roll - so I didn't buy more.

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

              Awesome win Skeptic! 

               

              Glad to hear you're finding some nice ones. Do you ever play the Lucky $200k a year for life? If so, have you ever had any luck on that ticket? 

               

              I've been wanting to play some of the $20 Gold Rush recently, but I've refrained because I exceeded my gambling limit and have to wait at least one more week before I allow myself to buy some tickets. I also want to play some $5 Flamingo, and maybe Cash Fall.

                Nice win.  I think your inclinations are correct to hold off.  There may be other winners, but this is likely the biggest one in the roll.  I usually break that rule when ther are only a few tickets left, then i'll just finish off the roll.

                    Take this with the necessary salt, but a Lotto official once told me that jackpot tickets are often hiding in rolls that also produce a $500 win. Of course, the ratio of 500s to jackpots still means there can be thousands of rolls that produce $500 without having a jackpot in them, but, still, an interesting observation if true.

                      Thanks guys for the nice words :)

                      Mr.Gray - the last time I talked with a lottery official he told me he believes there's a tooth fairy !

                      Dracos - used to play that yellow ticket and did get a $1k and a couple $500's - can't find them anymore around here.

                      Let's get some winners !

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

                        I haven't seen those tickets around these parts for Months. I love that game. Thumbs Up

                          Nice one Skeptic! It's encouraging to keep seeing some nice wins.  Just one question... you revealed only one prize and it happened to be right in the middle and a winning number.. how did you do that?! Guess it was the first one you scratched?  I find it interesting others' scratching habits.. I thought everyone just starts at top left like me and go horizontally to the right, but that's probably not the case..

                            Hey PendingSector - thanks for Nice one ! I just bought 5 and there it was. In the beginning I used to think certain numbers were better than others until I lined up all my $500 wins by ticket number and discovered there was a pretty even win spread on each ticket # - meaning 001 had 5, 002 had 4, 003had 5 etc ........ as far as a scratching pattern I have none and just scratch randomly every ticket and doubt if I ever scratched the same way on any ticket. You'd be surprised how many wins pop up with the first scratch .....

                            I'm glad we all have our own system - otherwise it would be a bore ....

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

                              If you google Florida Lottery 2016 Scratchoff PDF, you can see a file that lists all the scratchoffs coming out this year. Apparently there's going to be a new Gold Rush, and Monopoly game. Also, apparently there will be a $10 Crossword game.

                               

                              Apparently the new Gold rush is called "$5,000,000 Mega Gold Rush".  It will be interesting to see the odds on some of the new games. I haven't played any of the Monopoly games, but new $1- $20 Monopoly tickets sounds neat.
