    Yet. Until Saturday. And then begins the crying.

    If you happen to run into any Super Millions books along the way up the state, it's probably worth a buy at this point. I've been through a bunch of books recently. Keep trying to will that last prize to drop.

      Finally home from vacation. Did not have the time to venture to AK Kwik before coming home, but may take a trip this weekend. I did stop by my local Circle K this evening and bought the last 52 tickets of the new $10 Monopoly.  Had 1, $100 winner and 2x $50 winners.  Got back $485 on the $520 investment. Not too shabby. And I can still write off the losers. =) 

       

      If we get to Saturday and AK Kwik still has those 2 low numbered $200MS books, they are mine.  And depending on the other poster <zeb?>'s response to the last post, I  may buy the game out.  We shall see.

      I'm with jasefan - I have no idea why someone who has the $ and is close to AK hasn't bought those real odd numbered books - the ones that are way off from what most books are at right now. That there are 3 grand prizes left, and AK has some outlier books like that seems odd.

      Obviously, could be worthless books, but for people who like to buy books of stuff I don't understand chasing 200MS, which is 8 years old with 2 prizes (10% of original total) left when 50x has 3 prizes (12% of original total) left and is only 2 years old. The age, to me, matters as a game that's been out longer has likely had more rolls randomly pulled from circulation by FL Lotto - increasing the odds that they destroyed a grand prize. I'm gonna keep on with 50x for the time being.

        Though both games have gotten to a point where the difference in available tickets is moot, for a long time $200MS had far, far fewer tickets in the wild. Though it might not be much different now, chasing $200MS has made more sense statistically.

          Finshing off $200ms seems like a wiser decision strictly from a books remaining prospective. If there are only 30ish books left, compared to 50x possibly having what...50?  60?    That makes a huge difference.

           

          We are talkin about chasing 1 ticket after another.  This could turn into chasing book after book at $600 each.

            I'm not following the logic as to why, with approximately the same amount of tickets still available, you see 200MS as statistically better. It's been around almost 4 times as long and has a less (by only 2% granted) percentage of grand prizes left.

              Oh I'm not referring to trying to buy out a game. I'm simply referring to targeting specific books. The two outlier books that AK reportedly has as mentioned in a prior post. And barring a winner on those, ones in the general range of book 616000.

                Just curious ...............  Is there any way to know which of those 2 games have more non jackpot, large prizes remaning?   $100k,  $20k?  $10k?

                 

                That could make a massive difference.

                  I just want to see another ticket with a winner over $500 ... I don't care who wins it or on what (I'd love to see a 5k 10k 20k win) seems like either a massive win or under $500 .. need a little hope for the middle

                    200MS
                    20k: 4
                    10k: 33
                    5k: 16

                    50x
                    10k: 15
                    5k: 31

                     

                    I'd be a little suspect about the 33 remaining 10k prizes on 200MS, but only because 26 of them show one one way to win, and 7 on the other. (That's 90% of the first one, and 97% of the second way won). The way to win with 27 left is likely the tickets where 1 number matches and had people toss them out (jeez that'd suck for them, thankfully they'll never know).

                    Same goes for that 31 prizes left at 5k for 50x. Three ways to win 5k on that ticket, and the third way, should be a single matching number, claims 21 prizes remaining, while the other two ways show 6 prizes and 4 prizes.

                      Lets assume/pretend those numbers are legit.

                      That leaves a total of $2,490,000 in top prizes remaning for    $200ms

                      and

                      $3,305,000  for   50x

                       

                      An $815,000 difference, in favor of   50x the cash.   Seems like a no brainer to me as to which one to go after..... especially if the amount it tickets remaining is close to the same.

                        Hold on a second... I just looked at that 50x report... Am I to believe that at the time of that printing, there was over $7 million in prizes remaining!?!?!?!

                          Oldghost, I dont understand what you meant by the following:

                          "only because 26 of them show one one way to win, and 7 on the other. (That's 90% of the first one, and 97% of the second way won).

                          How do you know 26 of them show one way to win and not other way around?

                          Similarly, for 50X Cash game, how do you know the third way (last one) should be a single matching number? Why can't it be two or three matching numbers?

                            Hold on hold on.... something is WAY off....

                             

                            The 50x report shows 225,061 prizes outstanding

                            if there are a mere 30 books remaining, thats only  1800 tickets.

                             

                            Something is way way way off with the numbers. 

                            If those numbers are right, there would either have to be something like  3,800 books remaining with every single ticket being a winner, or if going by the odds, more like 10k books remaining..

                            or...

                            thousands upon thousands of people have thrown away winning tickets

                            or

                            The lottery has disposed of nearly 9,950ish books along with all of their prizes.

                            Either way.. if this all adds up, there is only about a .005% chance of a grand prize remaining.

                              Either FL Lotto is playing huge game here (or) lot of tickets have been destroyed and lost.

                              I have been in touch with FL Lotto Office in Miami regularly for the last one month and I told the Sales Manger that there are lot of discrepancies between the list of stores they say that they have  200 MS games and the list in reality as I contacted all of them but none of them either received it or activated it. She in turn contacted Sales Rep.s through email and included me in the email. But, there was no response from them Sales Rep. for more than a week. When I went to DO today and tried to do a follow up on this, she said it could be the books were damaged or stolen!!!! I didn't expect this type of response. I couldn't push her to get more details on this????!!!!
