I know I'm pretty late messaging back, it's been a min but any chance any of y'all have any of those reports for 200ms/holiday/50x or any idea if there is any up here. I'm right in northwest Florida. Pensacola exactly but Panama City and Tallahassee are 2 hours away. Thanks. 

 

Went thru about 15 $5 crossword doublers and only had 2 $5 dollar winners ahhh annoying. 

Won a 100 on a single hit on the $2 electric 8s and a 50 dollar on gold rush $2. Those are my go to tickets if I'm getting beat. Literally hit atleast 50 a week on those $2. It's nice cause you don't have to buy a lot.usually I buy 5

    Went to AK's in Gainesville today and played through three books of $200MS. Basically I played till the money I left with was gone. First book was godawful, $215 back on $600. The other two were pretty standard, about half back (all small winners) which I just put into more $200MS (my usual way to waste). That game loves to hurt and hurt and hurt me.

    As Dracos mentioned, though, the people at the store were really nice. Particularly the old guy who I guess owns the store. He was eager to chat about the Lottery and showed me ~$30k in Cash 3 tickets that had been played by just one of his regulars who comes in often to buy some hundreds of dollars worth on each occasion. And he told me about a group of scratchers that came up from Miami and bought 70 books from him in one go. After I burned through a couple books (I'd go out to the car, scratch what I had, come back in, get more...) he told me to help myself to any drinks or snacks in the store, which even though I've bought many many books from many many places is a first (I know a soda and some crackers amounts to about nothing when you're playing through a couple grand worth of scratch offs, but still, no proprietor has ever effectively said mi casa es su casa to me before). Also, funny, the man, before knowing where I was from, said if I hit a jackpot he'd hire me a limo and a security guard to take me to Tallahassee. Cool dude.

    AK's does have lots of $200MS, 50X, Power 8's, and pretty much everything else. For being just an unassuming little mart, that place is stocked like no other. While they may have some lower-numbered books of Holiday Gifts in stock (I didn't ask about it, but Dracos reported as much), the two open books they had running were both in the 90k range.

      Were the 15 $5 crossword tickets in a row? if so yikes ... reason I like the $1 $2 tickets if I buy 10 tickets ($10 or $20) I win something ... but ppl getting 11 losers in a row on $25 $20 $10 $5 tickets is crazy .. in my head that would be like buying a roll of $1 tickets and they were all losers .. I'm not looking looking to win millions I just like scratching and getting back $ to buy more

        AK Kwik (The place Mr Gray visited) in Gainesville has bulk lottery tickets, and probably has a stock comparable (maybe even larger) than most lottery district offices. 

         

        They probably have 10 books of 200MS left, they keep that game stocked. Maybe ask MrGray or Gatorsrok for a better update since they've both hit that location recently. They also have close to 20 books of $10 Holiday Gifts, and likely the same number of 50X The Cash. Of all the lottery retailers I've been to, AK Kwik is the best location. 

         

        MrGray - Sorry to hear about the bad 200MS books today, but I'm glad you liked AK Kwik. Thanks for the update. I agree the family that owns the place offers unparalleled hospitality. Very cool people. If there's a jackpot to be hit in North Fl, I'd assume their store is a location where the likelihood of it happening is probably much better than most places. The reason they didn't have any lower Holiday Books out is because they put them aside for me when they saw I was interested in the lower book numbers, without me even asking one of them tosses all of the lower number ones in a box and tells me he can hold/put them aside for me to play when I'm there. They would allow you to pick the book number too if you ask them, which is really cool being able to pick your book. If anyone wants to play the lower number Holiday Gifts there, just tell them your friend from Jacksonville mentioned they had some aside in the lower book numbers. 

         

        With how many books we've went through at AK Kwik (probably close to 12-15 if you factor yourself, Gators, and myself) I wonder if we'll see someone hit a big one on that game. We've seen several 500 winners, but those big prizes are truly elusive on that game. Which seems odd, considering the odds of hitting a big prize on that game is better than other $10 games out.

          Yeahhhhh man all in a row tickets 001-015. Really would like to know what the one before was ha. Bought 6 10 dollar crossword tickets 054-059. All losers this is getting nuts I mean I've seen y'all get burnt bad but these new ones even suck really really bad. It's funny everytime I win a lot I go to $5 and $10 tickets and get burned. But when I'm all out I just buy a couple $2 and always win 100 or something it doesn't make any sense.

            I hear you. I've gotten burnt on the $10 crossword. I've bought 10 $10 Crossword in a row (same book), and only encountered 1 $10 winner. 

             

            The odds on that game are pretty good compared to other $10 games, but I haven't done well on it at all. You are right to keep playing $2 tickets, they can pay off well too. It is easier to stay within budget, and hitting a big winner on a $2 ticket feels good.

              Sounds like AK's is the place to be. I don't think there is a place like that with so many tickets here in Jax. Hoping you or Dracos or someone who is playing a lot of books hits a big winner soon!

                Yep, it is worth the drive from Jacksonville to Gainesville (1 hr 1/2 each way) to visit AK Kwik. Like you've said before, you gotta watch out for the state troopers in Lawtey, Starke, and all those "small towns" along the way haha.  This isn't even all the games they have, there's a couple more display bins to the right. They literally have HUNDREDS of books of tickets. They had 20 books of $200 MS, 20 books of $10 Holdiay Gifts, over 10 books of 50X The Cash, etc. They have six games of $20 Gold Rush going at once, several FL Cash/$25 Misfortune, etc. The owner and his family are absolutely amazing people. They are extremely cool, and will even put a "book aside" for you to play and let you choose your book out of a box of them if you ask. (So you can look at book numbers) 

                 

                 

                I appreciate your best wishes Duckman. I wish you the best of luck if you play any, and to everyone else from the LP fam. I could splurge 1-2 more times and buy two  more 50X The Cash books, a few $5 books, or random assortment of tickets. With the $20 Gold Rush being reordered and having one of their "new" jackpots hit, I'm considering playing that game again. The Jacksonville district office still has close to 10 books of 50X The Cash, I might buy a book and a few random tickets of various games there. Or perhaps, I should hold off and play again in a week when I move to Gville at AK Kwik. I haven't seen a $500+ winner in a long-time, so I feel "overdue" haha.  When I first started playing the lottery back in Oct/Nov, I used to hit $500 frequently buying 2 tickets from a roll and then walking away. Buying rolls hasn't yielded me a positive return since that one $1k hit I found on the $10 Holiday Gifts in March. Perhaps it is time for me to come up with a new strategy if I continue to play scratch tickets.

                  Did you haven to catch the Roll numbers on those 3 books?

                  I'm starting to wonder what in the world is going on. You guys alone must have gone through at least 20 percent of the remaining books in 200MS and although it would be a task to find the jackpot, the odds say there should be plenty of 100 dollars and up prizes. The 10 matching numbers for $10K there was supposedly 7 of those from the last report. There absolutely has to be at least 5 of those considering matching 10 numbers would be very hard to miss. 

                  I'm probably done for awhile until we get to the very end. I gotta save up to go on vacation this year. Last year we drove to Vegas and along the way stopped off in States with scratchers. We bought in LA/TX/NM/ and AZ and didn't have a single winner. And NM apparently still awards a "Ticket" prize with slightly better odds than some of our games, but lower prizes.

                  I was curious when Adam brought up RI and small states and being able to potentially hit all the areas. I worked up in DE for a few years with the military so I went online to see what kind of scratchers they offer. For $25 you can play for a ticket for up to $250K. Ripoff. 

                  If AK starts running out, let me know.

                      Wow, sorry to hear 200MS was rough today. Agreed, the chase  is extremely expensive. I hope you hit something huge soon. Even a $5k or $10k hit would be enough to continue to fund the goal of hunting down the jackpot. Those people at AK Kwik are willing to put books aside for you. If you play any Holiday Books, mention your friend from Jacksonville told you about a box full of books from the 20k-50k range. There's about 10 books that they put aside. 

                       

                      Here are my results from today. At first I thought I got bent over by 50X The Cash based on how poor the first few tickets were. I played alot of random tickets (Super Millions, $20 Flamingo, Florida Cash, and $25 Fortune) - All were duds, except for the $25 Misfortune ironically having back to back winners of $25 and $30.  The results were...meh. 

                       

                      Book 1 - 50X The Cash (Book # 549,256) 

                      000- 12 ALL DUDS 

                      13 - $10

                      23 - $10 

                      30 - $100

                      35- $15

                      36 - $15

                      39 - $15

                      41 - $20

                      44 - $40 

                      49- $20

                      50- $100

                      51 - $10

                      52- $10

                      55- $15

                      57 - $20

                      59- $10 

                      Total return: $400/$600 (Pretty average) 

                      Winners: 15/60 or 1 in 4 (lower than game average)

                       

                      Book 2 - 50X The Cash (Book # 597,937) 

                      2- $15

                      3- $20

                      4- $20

                      8- $20

                      18- $50

                      21- $20

                      22- $10

                      23- $15 

                      24- $10 

                      30 - $15

                      36- $50 

                      46 -$100

                      49 - $10

                      51 - $10

                      56 -$25

                      57 - $15 

                      Total return: $405 

                      Winners: 15/60 or 1 in 4 (below average, just like last book) 

                       

                      I bought these tickets from Lawtey Food Store (very rural area). It seemed like the type of place a jackpot story would be written about. 

                       

                      You're either a Gator, or you're Gatorbait! 

                       

                      Biggest winners for the day were $100. 

                      IMPORTANT 50X Information

                      Dracos I just checked out the FL Media/Photos Page. I had to do a lot of searching, but I found the photos of the tickets of the 16th, 17th, and 20th of 24th Jackpot on 50X the cash posted on their FB page from December 2. The Roll Number this prize was won on was 591,534. This means your second book probably had no chance. I'm also guessing this is near the very end of the printing unless someone can confirm roll number for 50X starting in the 600s.

                      33,120,000 / 60 = 552,000 rolls (the roll numbers skip in some places and don't start with 1). A jackpot winner would be found around ever 23,000 books.

                      To recap

                       

                      Jackpot 21 of 24 - Unknown 

                      Jackpot 20 of 24 - Roll 591,534

                      Jackpot 19 of 24 - Unknown

                      Jackpot 18 of 24 - Unknown

                      Jackpot 17 of 24 - Roll 516,062

                      Jackpot 16 of 24 - Roll 491,627

                       

                      This is an Extremly Small Sample. But if they flow sequentially, odds are Jackpot 18 was around roll 542,000, and Jackpot 19 was around roll 565,000. Then there was a long gap before Jackpot 21 was won. Can anyone confirm if there roll numbers into the 600s on 50X? I didn't think there were and if that's true then 1 of these 3 unknown jackpots came from an older roll number, and if that's true, I might start seriously doubting whether any of the 3 jackpots are still out there or if they were picked up. Hopefully someone will be able to get the roll numbers for Jackpots 18,19 and 21. With that info you might be able to strategically pick a book to try and considering how AK sets aside books, who knows?

                        Did you haven to catch the Roll numbers on those 3 books?

                        I'm starting to wonder what in the world is going on. You guys alone must have gone through at least 20 percent of the remaining books in 200MS and although it would be a task to find the jackpot, the odds say there should be plenty of 100 dollars and up prizes. The 10 matching numbers for $10K there was supposedly 7 of those from the last report. There absolutely has to be at least 5 of those considering matching 10 numbers would be very hard to miss. 

                        I'm probably done for awhile until we get to the very end. I gotta save up to go on vacation this year. Last year we drove to Vegas and along the way stopped off in States with scratchers. We bought in LA/TX/NM/ and AZ and didn't have a single winner. And NM apparently still awards a "Ticket" prize with slightly better odds than some of our games, but lower prizes.

                        I was curious when Adam brought up RI and small states and being able to potentially hit all the areas. I worked up in DE for a few years with the military so I went online to see what kind of scratchers they offer. For $25 you can play for a ticket for up to $250K. Ripoff. 

                        If AK starts running out, let me know.

                        Honestly, that's smart thing to hold off. The chase has become very expensive. The main reason I've been a part of it is because I'm 24, single, and pretty much would spent side cash on video games/sushi.  Where are you looking to go for vacation this year? I might suggest Greece, but I'm a little biased because that's where my family there. =p

                         

                        @ Jasefan  I don't know anything about Lucky Loot, aside from the fact that it "has 1 jackpot remaining". I know it is an older $5 game, and I saw a picture of a jackpot winner from a store here in Jacksonville.

                          IMPORTANT 50X Information

                          Dracos I just checked out the FL Media/Photos Page. I had to do a lot of searching, but I found the photos of the tickets of the 16th, 17th, and 20th of 24th Jackpot on 50X the cash posted on their FB page from December 2. The Roll Number this prize was won on was 591,534. This means your second book probably had no chance. I'm also guessing this is near the very end of the printing unless someone can confirm roll number for 50X starting in the 600s.

                          33,120,000 / 60 = 552,000 rolls (the roll numbers skip in some places and don't start with 1). A jackpot winner would be found around ever 23,000 books.

                          That's very interesting information. 

                           

                          So you think the jackpots were hit in chronological order (increasing numbers)? Without knowing jackpot 18, 19, or 21, it is hard to say whether or not it is a smart idea to continue playing 50X The Cash. I never paid attention to the tickets from AK Kwik. 

                          I bought a couple of 50X The Cash tickets here in Jacksonville yesterday, book number 620200. The book has about 10-15 tickets remaining, think I should finish it off? Based on that information, I can confirm that there are books around/higher than that number. It is from a very tiny food shop in a low-income neighborhood, so I might stop by tomorrow and see if I can finish off that roll.

                            Zzplay, I just checked some duds from AK Kwik on 50X The Cash. 

                             

                            I bought some tickets from them that were from books number 6055655, and 618372. There definitely seems to be some above the 600k+ range out there. Knowing what book number jackpot #21 was from would be very helpful to see if it was an older book or if it were one of the low to medium 600k's. If that is the case, then the chances of hitting one in this range is low. 

                             

                            How did you find out those book numbers? I thought they only post the front of the ticket.

                              Dracos, I'd wait until we can confirm what the winning number on Jackpot 21 was. If they did run sequential there would be one in the 615-620 range but it may have already been won. If that's the case, you'll have to look for an even higher number like in the upper 630s/640s range if the print goes that high.

                              The FL Lotto apparently charges for providing this info. For someone like EMTAdam, it might be worth it. If he lays down a couple hundred to get the info or whatever the lottery charges, he might be able to target any gaps in the rolls numbers and avoid buying junk books. 

                              This got interesting all of a sudden.
