Risky it was in The Villages, and it was in Winn-Dixie from the counter. Bought 4 $5 tickets and just lucked out.

    So on the way out to cash my big win I stopped for gas and a drink and bought a $20 ticket and ended up hitting $100.

    I was not expecting the crazy wait and lines at the lotto ticket office though. Was there for over 4 hrs. I guess Mondays aren't a good day to go. Finally got out of there and cashed my ticket and bought some more. Hit another $100 on a $10 and just about another $100 on different tickets.

    So all in all a good day. Can't believe my luck the last few days.

      You have some amazing luck here in FL. Watch you hit a jackpot on the way home. It wouldn't be the first time someone has hit big while visiting Florida. A German tourist hit $3million on a scratchoff ticket from a Publix in Miami earlier this year. 

       

      Is it just me, or does anyone else find it odd a $1 million prize hasn't been hit on the $20 Monopoly yet? I've seen $20 Monopoly tickets in the 100k print range around where I live now. I saw the $5m jackpot was hit in the 50k range. I'd like to think 1-2 of the $1 million prizes should have been hit by now. Perhaps they are sitting unactivated, or in a low traffic area? In before a top prize is hit in Cape Coral soon by someone we know. =p 

       

      Additionally, I'm seeing $20 Flamingo tickets in the 660k-700k range where I live (which signals it is approaching the end of it's print line, if Super Millions is in the 700k range and is approaching it's end). 

       

      I get paid on Friday, so I might try buying random $5, and maybe a few $20 tickets. Then again, scratchoffs have been spanking me lately. I have always done well buying from Winn Dixie, and usually decent or very good buying from Publix. It is the random food stores/gas stations that tends to "clean" my wallet.

        Went over to AK today while I was in town. Bought a $10 holiday gift, a 50x, and various $2...all lost except the 50x which hit for $100 ?? ill take a 100$ profit. Then tonight I stop by my local Kangaroo and buy two $2 monoplies one hit for 10 amd other for $4. Me and my gf just got back from Virginia where she hit back to back $25 on two $2 scratchers, $50 on a $1 scratchoff, and I hit $50 on a $2 ticket. Not a bad few days..

           You're just unusually lucky. Don't think what you've experienced is the norm at all here in FL. If you stay and lived here and play long term, I can almost guarantee you will come out in the negative. FL lottery is THAT bad. I would say you have gotten lucky a few times now quit while you're ahead.

            Wow, you were there for 4 hours?  When I won $5000 in 2014 I was in there for about 30 mins.  A few weeks later I won $1000 and was out the door with a check in 15 minutes.

              Monday is just a bad day to go in, particularly in the morning. I stop by HQ every now and then to buy a few tickets from the DO there and the times I've gone through on Monday the visitor parking is full.

                Well...

                Gambled a bit today. Started out AHEAD by $95 when I bought 1 $5 Monopoly and hit $100 on the first ticket(see image below), and then kept playing and ended up being down a few hundred after buying some $20 Monopoly duds, $20 Flamingo duds, $20 Gold Rush duds, etc. The $5 Winning Streak is absolute garbage, perhaps the worst $5 ticket ever. Endless duds.

                I seem to only do well on $5, and $10 tickets lately. The $20 and up tickets are what empty my wallet. I've been playing the $20 Monopoly and $20 Flamingo because I think they are both overdue for a $1m prize to be hit. I haven't hit anything above $30 on those tickets, unfortunately, with duds making the win to lose ratio not very impressive. 

                On the bright side, I've calculated my paychecks, current credit card debt, rent, and other bills for the next 5 months. This also allocates $100/mo for lotto if I decide to keep playing. Discipline will be key here for me.  If I follow my budget, I should be debt free by Christmas in terms of credit cards.  The only exception is student loan debt. Curse you Johns Hopkins! Crying

                 

                 

                Also, how sad is it that I have 900+ entries for the 2nd Monopoly drawing already? (I did find a few $20 tickets thrown away in the trash, and picked them up shamelessly to enter them online)

                  Havent played ANY tickets in a few weeks, and tonight decided to give it a little go...

                   

                  Bought 2 of the $20 Monopoly tickets.  Won on both of them.  A  $500 WINNER with a Winall and $25 under each one, and a $50 winner on Double $25.

                  Bought 5 of the $10 Monopoly tickets.  Won on 3 of them.   A $50 winner , a $20 winner and a $10 winner. 

                   

                  Not too shabby.. =)

                    Hey guys, I haven't played much at all. Only tickets I've been getting is when I fill up. Got a Winning Streak last week but that ticket lost. Have to fill up in the morning so maybe I'll get one on the way to work.

                    Dang, I've been to that Win Dixie in the Villages (the one that used to be a Sweetbay). Nicest looking Winn Dixie in the State. We bought tickets from there a few weeks ago but didn't win anything.

                    For you guys lucky enough to win $100 or more on a scratcher, I have a question,

                    What's a better odds strategy?

                    Buying 4 $25 Scratchoffs with the chance you'll at least get some or all of your money back?

                    Buying 5 $20 Scratchoffs with the chance you'll at least get some or all of your money back?

                    Taking $100 and covering all the Double Cominations in Play 2 X $10 each so that if doubles hit, you win $500 and profit $400? 

                    Taking $100 and picking your favorite number b/w 0-9 and Boxing all combos with that number X 10 so that if the number you picked hit you'll win $250 (or $500 if the double of your favorite number comes in).

                    The Play 2 really looks like it may be better than scratchoffs, at least at the lower end.

                      Given those options, id personally go with Buying 5  $20 scratchoffs.

                          There went another 5 Million dollar prize on the $20 Monopoly. No info on where yet.

                            A second of the six $5M jackpots hit without a single one of the twenty $1M jackpots being taken. That's nuts.

                              Indeed.

                              In my area, I'm seeing $20 Monopoly tickets with book numbers ranging from the early thousands upwards to 100k. Perhaps some lower traffic stores or DO has some of those $1m prizes.

                              I assume there should have been at least 2 $1m prizes hit. Perhaps this pool is fairly irregular, and some of the $1m hits are coming soon. I assume because Monopoly is 2nd chance, a winner is highly unlikely to be trashed. Then again, I've found quite a few Monopoly tickets trashed despite the 2nd chance promo.

                               

                              I received instant liability reports for the Power 8s, and Lucky for Life. I'll post them shortly.

                              $20 - Lucky for Life (For anyone looking to empty their wallet or get bent over by a scratchoff ticket)
