Hi all,  I didn't play tonight but here's an update on Gainesville

I went to the Food Mart on SE9st and University Ave. They have quite a lot of games. All except 200MS. I was surprised to see they had $50,000 Gridiron which I haven't seen in stores in well over a year. Are they re-releasing this game because I went to another Kelly Kwik stop location on 34th and saw the same game.

 

Anyway's yes he has a roll going of 50X. It's currently on No 40. I did not want to buy out the roll so I left that for one of you all to claim. He supposedly also has one more in the back to stock when that's gone. Please buy them so I don't waste my money losing on them. j/k

I was then going to visit the FoodMax at 1314 University which is the other place that was on the list having an active roll of 50X. Let's just say there was a, um, crowd, loitering outside that place. I'm going to leave that to a braver LP Scratcher.

I didn't make it to the other locations to ask about rolls in the back. I will say the SE9 Food Mart has a good collection of tickets. KR was there.

quite a few places have the $2 Gridiron Cash around here ...  at least I get winners on it vs the Margaritaville or KR and easier to scratch than Electric 8's or WoF

 

(the stores that have a lot of ppl hanging around outside usually carry better snacks, stop in)

    The $200MS has a lot of prizes on the instant liability report because a lot of rolls were returned or deactivated.  There's no way all of those prizes will be claimed. Ditto for the 50X.  I am hopeful that the last remaining prize on the $10 Holiday ticket escaped the overzealous lotto reps taking the roll from a Publix/Winn Dixie and having it deactivated.

      Remember the other day when I said that among the $20 tickets the Flamingo Multiplier had actually treated me the best? Well, scratch that (ignore pun). Today I hit ten in a row duds and the winner that finally broke the streak was for... ... ... $20. I can take a beating like that on $5 tickets without getting too disgruntled, but <snip> is it awful on $20 tickets.

       

      In King's Ransom news, I've found a few decent rolls around here. Have played 30-40 tickets from three different rolls and hit $100 three times along with a handful of scattered smaller winnings.

        Ironically, I saw a few Publix stores having a roll of the $10 Holiday Gifts when I requested a report for all the rolls in the Jacksonville and Gainesville area. There's a good number of $10 Holiday Gift rolls out there, many of which are in the lower distribution number 60k >. Are you still focusing on Super Millions? I hope you hit a $100k+ prize bud. 

         

        I sent an email to the lottery asking them to clarify what happens when rolls are deactivated/destroyed, and asked for information they have on accountability in ensuring whether or not jackpot tickets aren't destroyed. Honestly, we should push for legislation that prevents the lottery from destroying active rolls. I think that they stores should be forced to sell the remaining roll, and inactive rolls sent to storage for future sales. No tickets should be intentionally destroyed, and even if a roll is active they should be able to take it and continue selling it at whatever number it left off at. I can't see a rational excuse for destroying tickets. 

         

        I do know that in cases of theft they may void prizes, but I highly doubt any jackpots prizes aren't stolen because theft cases must be minimal.

         

        @ Zzplay-  Thanks for the update on some locations with 50X in Gville. I hear you, that game can be pretty nasty for duds and fake multipliers. I might check out that location you mentioned for King's Ransom tickets when I move to Gville next week. I'm playing on stopping by this Friday to complete some hiring paperwork.

         

        @ Krissam - What was your experience with the $200MS rolls? How much did you get in return from each roll? There's a decent number of rolls in north FL if you are interested in taking a road trip!

          Sorry to hear bud. 

           

          That $20 Flamingo ticket can be brutal. It can be decent for offering $100 wins, but that's it. I've seen 8+ losers in a row on that game before. Your experience doesn't seem that unusual, unfortunately. I encountered 8 duds in a row on the Super Millions game the other day. 

           

          I'm glad to hear you've found some decent hits on the King's Ransom game. I'm contemplating buying a roll of it if I can get some location addresses that have them in Jacksonville/Gainesville.

            @Dracos, I haven't had a great experience with 200MS. There have been a lot of duds...I bought almost half of a book today and got $70 back but, I played $5k a week for life (3 tickets) and got $130. So, it gave me a little bit of relief....I have been playing 200MS as I felt there are more chances of hitting a big amount ($1000 or more) and available only in very few shops here in S.Florida.....But, I keep losing hope on this...I am kind of confused whether to continue with 200MS or to start playing any other game (either $10 or $5) that has better chances...

              I have come to the conclusion that $200ms sucks.  I found a book in North Port that was on ticket number 12. I bought the rest of the book. 

              At one point, from tickets 28 - 51  <23 tickets> I had ONE winner for $10.  Ticket 41.  Awful. 

              Total back on the $480 investment.... 

              $190.

                Almost forgot... While I was at that store getting the $200ms tickets, I couldnt help myself and grabbed the last 42 $10 Holiday Gifts.

                 

                Up and down with 1 streak of 11 losers. <common with this game>

                Total spent - $420

                Total won - $165

                  It sounds like you found a bad roll, honestly. 200MS is just like any other $10 game with hot, mild (typical half return), and cold rolls(subpar returns), although I'd say the return is generally slightly better. I believe Skeptic posted once saying he heard of a book having two $10k prizes. I encountered a book with five $100 winners. 

                  The odds at hitting $500 on 200MS is substantially better than any other $10 game with it being 1 in 1000 compared to 1 in 2666.67 such as the Holiday Gifts game. 

                  I think 50X Cash sucks haha. I bought I think around 22-25 tickets with only 3 winners the other day.  I might try some of the King's Ransom, although I've heard it lives up to the name. =p

                    I just couldnt believe that span of 23 tickets with 1 winner... I had 11 losers in a row. A single $10 winner, then 11 more losers. it was baaaaaaaad.

                      Someone probably hit a $5k at the beginning of the book and since then the store owner's just been waiting to drop a bomb on someone, like, "The rest of this book ain't gonna pay back <snip>."

                       

                      Despite my belief that $200MS and 50X are good buys with respect to the odds at a million, neither has been good for me with lower prizes. Piles of losers on both just waiting to one day be written off against a big win.

                        Mhm, I've noticed that 200MS can have a weird distribution of winners just like the $10 Holiday Gifts.

                         

                        In one book I played through, the first 14 tickets were winners. After those 14 winners, I encountered 9-10 streaks of losers with $10 break evens. Dud after dud. 200MS players seem to know when it is the right time to abandon the roll for someone else. =p

                          Went to the Apopka store that was listed for having 50xcash  ... lady was very nice and told me the person that just won the 500k on $5 Flamingo was a regular and tipped her 1K for being his "good luck" ... my tickets were losers ... the best today was $10 on a $1 ticket

                              Guys, is there any logic or sense in trying to play 100X Cash game anymore? I am planning to find the list of stores that has this game in South Florida.

                              If anyone has the updated/latest list of shops that carry this game (or) instant liability for this game, please let me know.
