Lol Adam going for round 2! I love it! Just curious Adam bc if im chasing the 50x jackpot obvs I love that youre not but...why did you decide not to? The commute to get em all?

I cant help but feel that the other 2 mil prize on this game is out there. The ticket is not that hard to read with only a few numbers to look for.  I did not realize that there were still so many places around the state with them. Then again, my area hasnt had any for a while <thanks to me>... I was going to go after the 50x at the same time as the 200ms, but I had that run in with the police on my way to buy them and then didnt end up going. 

 

Does anyone know how long of a drive it is from I-75 to AK Kwik?  I know what google maps says, but whats the real world drive time?

    About 4 days :) lol i can do the drive in about 10 minutes but I delivered pizza there for 4 years and know the shortcuts lol. Any normal joe I'd say 15 or so depending. Looks like Ill have to beat Adam to AK before he takes my 50X with him! lol jk....you did mean I75 to AK right? Not from where you live

      Alot of variance depending on:

       

      1-) Do you have a "lead foot"?

      2-) Whether or not there's an accident on I-75. I-75 seems to always be congested whenever I take it in the evening. Super early in the morning or late at night, it isn't too bad.

       

      I agree that I think it is very possible the other $2m prize is out there, and I'd definitely invest in hunting for it and 50X if I had the capital.

       

      Edit: What "if" the 2nd Holiday Gifts prize was in the 80k range or something within 20k-30k away from your jackpot hit? We seem to have alot of interest in the lower book distribution number (under 60k range), but there's probably a decent number of books out there in the 60k-80k range as well. After seeing the $20 Monopoly have 2 jackpots hit within an unusual book range, perhaps the $10 Holiday gifts is irregular as well. I'd still try the < 60k books, personally.

          I only had that opinion on the book # that was really out of range. Other than that I'd say the 369000 range book but it's all a crap shoot at this point, might as well pick one at random.

                Depends which way you go of course ... I like to go in one way and out another

                So many things to see/do ... and if you go early morning to store and then want to do DO and lunch after etc.

                 

                and if you find yourself down 34th and see the 5 memorial trees in median or the wall ... remember ... and be so thankful for life and luck

                    buying it now :)

                    Good luck Ron! 

                     

                    I'm double checking my duds from my big gambling spree last week, and wow...

                     

                    Ticket # 14- 29 on the $20 Flamingo Multiplier had only TWO winners. 

                    #16- $20, and #28 - $25

                     

                    That's unbelievably bad, even worse than Donafello's typical day with the New York lottery. And that, folks is why I'm so glad to be taking a break from scratchoffs, lol. Imagine that type of outcome buying half a book of a $20 ticket, times 3-4. I experienced the same types of results with the $20 Monopoly ticket. Even $1 tickets would have paid better. I would have been better buying books of $1 tickets. And that is why veterans say not to chase, or only do two from a roll method...to not buy into low payout rolls. For some reason, I struggled to follow this. Blue Thinking

                      So on that $2 Holiday roll. I started at #44, played off of $10 through #110 as mentioned earlier. Me and the clerk, who I've known a while, were talking about how I hoped to finish the roll and she she said not to worry, nobody ever buys it. I went back later to buy 5 more and RANDOMLY someone she's never seen before (we're in an area where generally only regulars show up during the week) walked in and asked how many she had, and bought 20 of them. Anyways. I had the ones from #131 on. $10 biggest winner. So if there was a big winner on that roll, someone else got it, which I still think is entirely possible. Gonna have to watch the prizes remaining for that and then the report after the next hit.

                      That said, I noticed (and now remember) that I do better with $2 tickets, so I'm going to try to go back to those and stick to them primarily. I knew this from the past, but only now remembered. $5 tickets when I win they're usually $5 ... $2 I win $2, $4, and more more often.. so .. yah.

                        But if I recall things clearly, weren't you Mr. $2000 $5 Flamingo Multiplier winner earlier this year (or was it last year?).  Where did you buy that again, and was it a one and done or did you buy many? I've seen print outs in stores of $1000 winners on $2 tickets. The $2 Monopoly even has a $2.5k prize, which would be amazing to hit. The Electric 8s has that $5k secondary grand prize, which is also pretty insane. 

                        I can definitely see how someone can do very well on $2 tickets. It is easier to regulate it as a hobby, and even if you encounter streaks of duds in a row you don't get burnt. I encountered 12 $20 losers in a row, which in my opinion, should be illegal. I know the lottery supports education, but no roll should be that bad.  I guess those are the "jackpot paying rolls". With $10 tickets, I've noticed average rolls returning $350-$400/$600. Jackpot revenue sucking rolls normally pay back $205-$250 range lol. 

                         

                        But yeah, I can only imagine the feeling of winning that amount on a $1 or $2 ticket. It must be incredible. Smile

                         

                        Edit: Wow, incredible that the $2 Holiday Gifts still has 4/10 remaining jackpots.

                          I bought one. I wanted a $5 Flamingo and the machine (Publix) was broken for that one so the guy fixed it, I bought it, it won. I then went back and finished off the roll.. nothing else good.

                            I bought another $25 game I'll scratch off later tonight. I'm enjoying reading this thread.

                            How much do some of you guys invest in a month? You seem to be serious players buying rolls. I'm getting an education here.
