So perhaps we are talking a 5M hit about every 50k rolls?  We should be looking at 150k thru 180k roll numbers for the next one? What say you statistics experts?

The odds work on averages.  The $5M prize should only come out every 126,667 rolls (3,800,000 odds / 30 tickets to a roll).  The fact that two came out this quickly likely means that there could be a real drought in top prizes for a while or at some point down the road. 

The same thing happened in the $10M Misfortune game.  The first $10M prize hit relatively early in the game cycle (somewhere in the low 100k range) when the overall odds are closer to 1 every 202,500 rolls (8,100,000 odds / 40 tickets to a roll).  We are in the mid-300k roll range here in Jax and there has not been another top prize hit yet.  And it could be a while longer.  From what I have seen on the frequency of top prizes hits, there is variance with some being hit closer together and some being hit further apart.  But the average eventually stays the same.  Otherwise at this rate, the last 4 top $5M prizes will be claimed before the game is half way through the distribution cycle which is not likely to happen.

          meh. Maybe try 1 of the $5 but nothing worth going crazy for. I know youre excited jase you play alot more of the $1 and $2 than most of us here so goodluck and hopefully you can hit a good amount! Ive been sticking to my 50x dedication..scratched off like 22 tickets today but only made back 140 :/. So im a little of halfway on the roll (#34 or close to it) and have won like 320 so far...hopefully something big will be hidden at the end :)! If not ill just start on a different roll lol but when I do ill run it by here to see which one yall think might be a little better of a choice

                So this was weird. I picked up a $2 Holiday just now, which lost, but the book number was 16008. You don't have to follow the book numbers of this game to know that that has to be an oddly low number to be sold right now...

                  The third winning ticket (I assume third since it posted today and remaining prizes went down yesterday) for $5 Monopoly was posted.

                  (And for those Jax players who never see winners up there, this was won in your city).


                  First winner was book 0049937 and third (assumed) is 0115955.

                  The reason I'm bothering to post this, is so that it's hopefully easier to find should this turn into something like 50x later and people want book #s. Though my faith in the book number mattering is pretty low now with what showed up for the $20 Monopoly, but that's a different post entirely.

                    Yeah. That happens from time to time. A few weeks ago I bought a Florida Cash from a little liquor store in Crawfordville that had a similarly low book number (down in 7k!) when pretty much everywhere else was up near 130k.

                      Thanks Oldghost. It will be helpful for people in this forum in future.

                        Yah it's just weird because I know this place and I know they didn't have this just sitting in the safe unseen for months, so they must have gotten it in a shipment recently. Anyways, I went back with just $10 to snag 5 more, it was on ticket #45, ended up winning enough small amounts and a couple larger ($20, $30) amounts that I played it through #110. Hoping it's on #111 when I go back tomorrow. Lol

                          Used the $2 ticket win to buy new tickets

                          easy to scratch

                          impossible to scratch

                          average to easy scratch

                           

                          haven't done $3 crossword or $5 tickets yet
