I just love the odds 1 in 30 for all ...  $25 $30 $40 $50 $100 ... always ticks you off when you hit the lower amounts  ... like the ones that hitting $10 is 1 in a 100 and hitting $6 is 1 in 150 and you keep getting the $6 wins

    ^ This. 

     

    $100 wins are so much better for the wallet.  Or even hitting $50 on $5 Gold Rush/Flamingo which is 1 in 461, compared to $100 at 1 in 296.

      Fun with numbers.... 

      Over the last 4 months,  I have scratched off approximately 1200 tickets.  Almost all of them $10 tickets.  And almost all of those were Holiday Gifts, 50x,and $200ms.

      Not including the HG Jackpot prize, or the 250k kr prize,   I thought you all might be interested in some fast facts....

      The amount won the most often was $15

      Second most often won,  was $20

      Followed by $10 winners

      And then 30/40/50 winners at about an equal pace.

      The highest non jackpot win has been $100, about 16 times. 

      There have been 0 winners above $100 

      Just thought you all might be interested in those tidbits.

          It seems odd nothing over $100 (except the 2 big wins)  must be very frustrating with the amount of tickets you play ... I get frustrated with nothing over $100 wins on the $1 and $2 tickets (I think the most I have won on $5/$10/$20 tickets is $50)

              Burned through a few more rolls of the $200MS and got beaten up again.  Also went through a few Super Millions rolls with the same results.  For what it's worth, I received a response back from the FL lottery on the roll numbers for the last two prizes claimed in the $200MS.

              The roll numbers are:

              Top Prize number 17 - 493,476

              Top Prize number 18 - 519,625

              A top prize is printed every 25,000 rolls for the $200MS.  To my knowledge, the highest roll number goes to about 557,000. 

              On a side note, after looking at the new $20 Monopoly, I am not very impressed either but it does appear to be an improvement on the current $20 Monopoly.  At least there is a decent second place prize and a $100k prize level.  Overall, it is just a reboot of the $20 Flamingo just like the $10M Florida Fortune is a reboot of the $10M Florida Cash.

              Good luck everyone.  I'm getting pretty close to tapping out.  I have a budget for buying tickets and I've exceeded it.  So I am going to be slowing down ticket purchases going forward.  I hope one of you (even Adam) hits at least one of the jackpots floating out there.

                Adam are you reading this?

                The roll I played out at Anthony Food Mart was 546K. The first ticket I bought from AK from a roll of 200MS (as a gesture because he was kind to print me out the information for 50X) was 551K

                Based on this information, there is at least 1 $1M prize in 200MS left. Go buy the books up. And it's near the range I scratched off at the Anthony place. I do not know if they had another roll after I finished that one, but AK and Sun Mart in Gainesville definitely have rolls.

                  I stopped by AK today. Played $80 worthof random $5 tickets, only got $10 back lol. DeadThey didn't have any 200MS in display,  from my memory. They probably have books in the back though. 

                   

                  Also, they didn't have any Power 8's in display (or back as they would normally offer to grab a book). 

                   

                  @ Gators - I'm sorry to hear about the rough returns, and I think it is a smart idea to cut back massively. I'm in the same boat as you. The chase just isn't financially sustainable, unless you hit enough medium prizes, or a jackpot to make it worthwhile.

                   

                  I'm putting aside maybe $100-200 for when the new Monopoly tickets come out, but my days of buying books is over as well.

                    This about matches my experience, minus the big wins. Haven't seen $500+ since my $500 hit on $20 Flamingo Multiplier in December. 

                    Super Millions is getting bloody scarce. I know of only a few stores between here (Tallahassee) and Panama City that have any. Found a roll today at a corner store down the road I'm trying to resist buying out.

                     

                    FWIW: all of the $200MS books I've been through in the last month have been between 539k and 560k book numbers. Still no love.

                      Oops, dyslexia. My roll was in the 548K range, probably a little too high.

                      I saw Dracos did a roll at 532K that was probably too close to the last jackpot.

                       

                      We're loooking for a roll in the upper 530's-mid 540's would be my best guess. If the game rolls are maxed at around 557K this makes sense since the lottery would order more rolls without having to print another jackpot prize.

                       

                      Anybody still have losing tickets to confirm what roll numbers they had?

                        I'll look through duds later to confirm what rolls I've been through. I don't think anything higher than 548k.

                         

                        Is it just me, or others also mad at losing on scratchoffs when thinking about the amount of sushi/chinese food we could be buying instead? Cussing Face

                            $200MS books I've burned through recently. Note: this is not a complete list, I'm just grabbing a pile of recent duds and writing down some of the numbers:

                            539377

                            540249

                            556780

                            557243

                            555077

                            538439

                            534175

                            427574

                            482862

                            557566

                            546749

                            556278

                            557993

                            554235

                            555900

                            555203

                            556950

                            552831

                            557589

                            546585

                            (So, a couple rolls of oddballs in the 400s, but mostly mid 500s.)

                            And my stack of duds just keeps going and going and going. Sad

                              (So, a couple rolls of oddballs in the 400s, but mostly mid 500s.)

                              And my stack of duds just keeps going and going and going. Sad

                              Wow McGray some of those rolls are absolutely "In the Zone" Do you remember where you played the following:

                              539377

                              540249

                              540252

                              540060

                              546749

                              546585

                              This is the zone I think the $1M would be in if the roll is still out there. Do you happen to remember where you got these specific books?

                              Gatorsrok pointed out the FL Lottery may order more rolls of a game but not to the point of ordering another $1M Prize. If the Jackpot is around roll 540K, they could push another 17,000 books out without having to order another grand prize.

                              It looks like 1 of the 2 remaining prizes was supposed to be won earlier in the game but wasn't for whatever reason (picked up, missed winner, etc). Without knowing the rolls of the others its hard to tell if the rolls in the 400's were worth playing or not. But the six rolls here was probably the best shot. Anything in the 550's or under 535K looks like junk.
