    Thanks skeptic.  I think my co-workers and I are going to buy the roll next week.  We do it every 4-6 months and we are overdue.  I was just on the fence whether to do the $1M monopoly or $200 MS.  Odds of a $500 or $1000 prize are better in the $200 MS but the overall $1M prize odds are better for $1M monopoly.  I'll post any big winners that come out of whichever roll we buy.

    Also, congrats on your big win as well.

      $200 MS is old but GOOD. Lot of people here have had good hits on that game myself included. I have a feeling its due for a million soon. Cant say the same about Monopoly. Good luck on your roll !

      2014 Highest Winner: $500

          I bought the ticket after paying for groceries at Publix.  It was a one and done.  That is how I usually buy tickets.  The few times I have bought rolls, I've never come out ahead (although I haven't taken a really bad beating either).  I won $1k on a BDB about a year and a half ago at the same Publix and it was the same thing.  Just a single purchase after buying groceries.  I usually buy 2-3 tickets a week total and see if I get lucky.

            Nice winning. I wish publix would do for me than providing me hot man candy to look at lol. Anyway a little off topic I took my "winnings" from last week back to the hard rock casino, this time in Tampa. They had the same slot I played in Lauderdale except it was  2c instead of a penny for some reason. Long story short I got greedy and tried to recoup my losses so I can see how some people can be addicted to winning. I liked the Ft. Lauderdale casino better anyway and I guess my next trip to the casino I'll drive the extra 2 hrs to go to that one. I really wish they had a bigger selection/section of smoke free games, those old women smoking at every turn is a buzz kill. I've never wanted to choke slam anybody that much in my entire life lol. I wonder if I request a certain game to be moved to a non smoking area would make it happen.

                Well I just got off the phone with my district office (Orlando) asking where I could find the Lucky for Life $200,000 game and they person couldn't get me off the phone fast enough. I had emailed the main lottery site a few weeks ago and they referred me to my district. I emailed my district representative and he never emailed me back. It's strange, a month ago all the "family" operated stores around me had them in stock but now they don't. The person gave me a location of some guy near the airport who has "every" ticket and suggested him. I asked if they carried the game she said no but then said yes when I asked for a listing of stores to be emailed to me. Either someone is lazy at their job or they don't want to give away that ticket for some reason.

                    Looks like your area sucks too when it comes to Super Millions. GRT is running out too.

                      They will probably re-order GRT because of its popularity.  It's been re-ordered about 7 or 8 times already.  The only reason the Fla Lottery will not re-order will be if they release another version of the game with an inferior payout schedule.  It seems like a lot of the newer games are just rereleases of older games but with slightly worse overall odds.  I guess they can do that when they keep getting record sales.

                        Didn't the odds change for $500 on the current gold rush from the last one?

                          They are transitioning a lot of the older games to newer versions that have the barcode on the front under the scratch area. This may be a reason why they will come out with a new Gold Rush version as opposed to re-ordering the old style tickets without barcode on the front. The goal is to have all scratch games with the newer front barcodes for more convenient scanning and validation...

                            At the other Publix store near me one of the stock room guys bought TWO Super Millions yesterday and snagged $1,000 ! So what do I do ? Hit the ATM this morning then shoot over to my favorite Publix and get 10 SMs each from two different bins and ten over the counter. Head home with visions of at least one $1K and two $500's .............. hard to believe and OldSchool is right on about the crappy odds for a $500 - after franctically scracthing and seeing dud after dud I wind up with wins of 5 $20's - ONE $40 - ONE $25 and that was it !!!!!!!!!!! Out of 30 tickets 7 wins for a whopping total of $165. I must have been lucky as hill to get that $500 a couple weeks ago (was posted) but how that Publix guy winds up with a $1K buying just two tix ? I say it ain't fair and I'm gonna do somethin' about it !! danm straight !!! NEW RULES TO BE POSTED AT ALL STORES : NOBODY IS ALLOWED TO PLAY UNLESS YOU BUY A MINUMUM OF 5 TICKETS! Ehhhh - well somethin' like that .......

                              Usually play scratch offs in Georgia but just recently got back from my vacation in Panama City Beach, FL and hit up mom and pop stores, chain gas stations, and Publix (Winn Dixie was a horrible mistake)with some hits and misses. Monopoly Millionaire was by and large a cruel mistress that paid off for me in 3 of the 4 tickets I bought of them the first time (One being a pictureless $150 winner) and later maybe $20 thrown in with massive amounts of nothing! Really bummed cause I thought I had picked the right game for me... Anyways I then finally understand what I was empathic with you guys about that freaking Gold Nugget! I don't even want to admit the amount that I bought thinking "Well...They are on the last three of the roll, surely..." or just plain being obsessive about getting that Gold Nugget. Twice in the hundreds of dollars used I got the stack of coins with $10 underneath them and that was my biggest pay off for them. Now these Super Millions were mostly ice cold for me but I once got a $50 win on one. These two shown were the last I got as I was leaving for home. I cannot tell you how agravating and how cruel it is to get hugely excited and then you realised you just got teased and suckered just then. AH Finally my 100x experience was a complete waste at first after a few tickets bought, I even left them alone for the rest of my visit until the last two days by impulse picking my tickets. So I bought one from different rolls, one being a $25 win which compared to my sad stack of earlier tries of no wins was a relief and then finally on my way home a decent enough one to share, not big or anything but I'll will gladly appreciate the $100 ticket! I would be so embarrassed to show you all my losing tickets and the 100x's sadly provided me with many entries for the 2nd Chance promotion which no way in hades will I win that one! Will be returning sometime soon so I bought a bunch of Bingo Stars (which I am sure will lead to a stack of $3 winners that I can only hope will add up decently). Ah... so that was my Florida State lotto experience for me! Nothing was life altering, sometimes a huge feeling of regret and thinking that I am never going to be one of the lucky ones ( I know poor me right?), and then some cool feel good tickets won. I must admit, Florida did impress me a bit compared to Georgia's return of payouts. Sad I had to go back, would've loved to keep on trying with some more trial and error type of strategies. Maybe I'll get shocked by a great Bingo win and have a decent pic to show you!

                              Awesome! A symbol... um crap

                              In Georgia, this would be called a free ticket winner!Impulse buy that I didn't regret
