Well, on my way back from work yesterday, I decided to cash in a $25 Super Millions winner and buy a 100X the Cash ticket.  Not a bad way to end the week.  Another $1k up.

100x

    Nice hit Gatorsrok!!!  One day my ship will come in.  On my way to a volunteer function this morning, I decided to spend a $100 on a few tix.  I ended up making $110 in return.  I was just glad a didn't loose it all.  But suprised most of all with the SM payout.  They usually never pay out for me...

      Just won my first $100 since back on my birthday in September. Especially nice since I only spent $10.  My casino fund is almost ready!

        I was thinking that VTE is a relatively new code for losing tickets-- I hate the dreaded "NEW" code and VTE is the only other code I've seen with an E in it--here's my actual question/comment: are they still printing the old original orange colored $20 Monopoly tickets? I just found a place with them and got two tickets- one broke even, the other lost and had VTE as the code. It surprised me on that game since it is an older game. Are they still printing them???

          The old orange $20 monopoly tickets are still in existence (I have only seen them at the lotto district office).  They are selling whats left in inventory, but they are not printing new ones.  They have the new $20 monopoly and they already did a reorder on that one.  There is only 1 $3M and 1 $500K prize left on the old monopoly.  Good luck.

            I like the orange Monopoly and figured it would be worth it to try a few since I don't find this game at any other stores. I kind of figured they weren't still printing but was surprised to see that VTE code, as I thought that code was only used on the newer games. I've tried some of the newer Monopoly in the past few weeks and haven't won--seeing this old version was cool simply because it isn't around much anymore. Lately I see fewer Flamingo Fortunes as well. I tried a few and lost. I just refuse to play the Super Millions--I mean don't get me wrong, I played a lot of them when they were first issued--and I'll play one here or there, but I mainly stick to Gold Rush. Unfortunately, they phase out those older games and presumably dole out mostly duds. But I just can't play Super Millions with the awful odds.

              Cashed in my winnings from the other day and ended up with these.  I just had a lucky feeling on the way home from work.  I was tempted on getting 4 SM but ended up getting 2/SM, 2/100X and 2/50X.  The SM and 50X were losers but the 100X made up for them.  I wonder what would of happened if I had just gotten the 4SM instead...

               

               

              Sorry about the image.  Not sure why it's sideways.

                I understand your issue with the Super Millions.  Gold Rush and Super Millions are just designed differently.  Gold Rush makes the lower level prizes ($500) far easier to win than any other game but at the consequence of making the top level prizes harder to win than other $20 games.  Super Millions does the opposite (easier top level prizes but stingy on the lower level prizes).

                My luck has been cyclical.  I did very well on Super Millions for a week or two and then I get nothing.  I've had awful luck on Gold Rush despite the stated odds.  When I decide which ticket to buy, I usually look for the best odds on the top prize(s).  So I'll probably keep trying my luck on the Super Millions - at least until more of the top prizes are won.  Recently, I have ventured into the 100X the Cash because the extra $5 for the ticket price buys superior odds to Super Millions.  But $25 is really at the upper end of my price point and I had bad luck on those tickets for a while but my luck has changed recently. 

                In any event, I hope that you hit one of the big prizes on the Gold Rush.  There are still several left.

                  Since my last post I've played maybe once a week, quite a few $100 wins and a couple $50's, still searching for a big win! Anyway, today I went out and made a little bit of money!

                  Put $20 in the machine and got:

                  • 2 $10 50x #49-48 - $15 winner (#49)

                  Turned that in and got a $25 from the counter

                  • 1 $25 100x #39 - $25 winner

                  Turned that in and went back to the machine

                  • 1 $20 Flamingo #26 - $100 winner

                  Turned that in and got these from the counter

                  • 1 $20 Gold Rush #25 - $30 winner
                  • 10 $2 Cash Inferno #93-84 - $6 ($2 #89; $4 #85)

                  Pretty good overall I guess, wish I didn't get the $2 tickets though. Come to find out the Publix I work at sold a $10k winner on the 50x ticket about a month ago.

                    Nice job on the "All" symbol Pingu.  It seems very elusive for me.  I am still holding out for the "Super" symbol in the Super Millions.  Until I get it, I'll take this backup.  $200 SM win

                      Laid off the scratchers for a while.  Been playing the $1 Match 3 Doubler every now and then.  Most I hit was $25.  Waiting on new scratchers to come out May 27th. A lot of people I know that are into the scratch offs have slowed down due to the tickets being mostly duds.  Nice to see some people finally hitting over $50 on the Super Millions.  That's the most I've won on those and had to call it quits after many failures.

                        Yay!!! Check this out, my first 25X!!!!  Bought two from my favorite store this morning.  The first was a dud and the second got me a hundred.

                          Nice win Pingu.  I buy these every now and then looking for the elusive 100X symbol.  I know the first time I get it there will be $2.00 underneath it.  But it would still be fun to see.

                            Thanks GATORSROK! I know what you mean by the "X" symbols.  They great to see but you know they're only $2.  Hopefully you hit a nice one soon.

                              Bought 5 straight gold rush today after work. 000-004. ALL LOSERS. I WAS SO MAD. I figured I would at least win my money back because I've won $500 on 001 and I know people that have won $500 on low numbers. I'm never buying a scratch off again.

                              You gotta be in it to win it.
