Adam - I'd say it is possible, especially with how much the distribution number varies. There have been cases of people winning multiple lottery jackpots on different/same games in the past. There are definitely lower distribution books floating around, as I've seen several in the Jacksonville area, Gainesville, and evidently in central/south FL area as well. If I were you, I'd quit playing the lottery, speak with a financial advisor, and save/invest. You're set for life bro! Smile

 

Gray - That's interesting info. Yeah, you and many of the posters of this forum probably know alot more about tickets/distribution than the average retailer. You're in Tallahassee?  If you're ever in Jax, I can give you the name of places I know have some of the 50x game.

          Hey Bke, 

           

          It has been a week since I've went to a food/grocery store, but just a couple of places that I remember having 50x off the time of my head: 

           

          Wild West Food Store (westside of Jacksonville next to Lakeshore MS and off of Blanding/San Juan). 

          Jax Food Stores (a block down from Lakeshore MS on the westside of Jax and near Publix on Roosevelt) 

          Dollar Max (Arlington) off of Fort Caroline/University Blvd  - It is a small printing/office shop that sells lotto scratchers. 

           

          I've seen it in quite a few food stores around Arlington and in many places on the Westside. If you drive around, Mom/pop stores tend to have this game. It is possible that the number of places selling this ticket has dropped with the new $10 Crossword coming out. If you don't mind me asking, which side of Jax do you live? 

           

           

          Best of luck! Smile

            Yes. That win put you in the top tax bracket assuming you don't a slew of deductions and exemptions. They should send you a 1099 next January and when you file your tax return hopefully you will have saved enough to pay the rest.

                Well, I'd check out the "Wild west food store" on the westside on San Juan/Blanding. 

                 

                They give you a free $1 scratch off for every $50 you spend on scratchers. Last time I check, they had 50X in stock. The people there seemed very friendly as well.

                  I know some people have mentioned/ asked about how often the Florida lottery updates it's  Grand Prizes Remaining section.  Well, I claimed mine on Friday, and i just checked the site and now it shows 1 of 2 left for Holiday Gifts.  2 days is pretty quick. Lol

                    Right but they don't maintain any sort of consistency there.  Sometimes they update the prizes before they announce it, sometimes they announce it before they update the remaining prizes.  And also sometimes they wait who knows how long before updating the prize page.  So it's hard to know really what the true remaining number is; it's either complete incompetence, or they are playing games/angle-shooting, or a mixture of both.

                      They're not there today, so I'd have to assume it's some sort of automated batch update to the database that gets run. Interesting. I figured it was manually done for those.

                        Anyone been putting a lot into the Fortune lately? The ticket totally sucks, however lots of top prizes...  seems as though the top prizes are not hitting a lot either.

                          I agree wholeheartedly. I see alot of break evens, maybe a $100 here or there. I won these $100 (back to back winners on ticket #3 and 4). Unfortunately, I lost all of the profits playing the $10 Holiday Gifts game. It is cool to see back to back winners. Around where I live, I keep hearing from mom/pop stores of people finding $1k, $5k, and even $10k winners. I would love to hit a $5k, or $10k prize on one of these tickets. These pictures are from a few weeks ago, or maybe a month back. 

                           

                          The $25 tickets seem to be either really hot, or cold. What are your thoughts on the $25 Florida Cash? There's still 1 top $10m prize, and 9 $1m prizes. It wouldn't surrpised me if a couple of those $1m prizes were thrown in the trash can. It can be easy to miss a number on a $25 ticket. The most I've hit during my 8 months of playing lotto scratchoffs is $1k on Florida Cash, and $1k on the Holiday Gifts ticket. I envy the people who can buy 1 ticket and hit $10k! Smile

                            $50 on the 7's and $100 on the King's Ransom. Normally I wouldn't post below $50 but whatever. Also got a $40 WoF at the same store and a $50 WoF up the road. It seems I can hit $100s relatively easily (easier than should be), but other than the $2k in March, I can't break $100. Would love just a simple $400 or $500 right now.

                              Yeah, consistency is the issue. This time they were on it, but more often than not they seem to just "forget" to update some of those things. Same with the Winners pdf reports which, if reliable, would be a good secondary way to check remaining prizes. But, those things can go a couple months before being updated with a winner.

                               

                              Also, when I checked yesterday to see if EMTAdam's win had been removed from the remaining prizes list, I noticed the $10 crossword game had a prize removed as well. Guess we'll see an announcement about that this week.
