One number away from the jackpot prize on my scratch off tonight. 

I will try again on Friday.

    @ Kamba - You know that's a common manipulation tactic that lotteries employ to keep people playing, right? 

     

    @ Ron - Not too bad, could have been much worse ($205/$600). Fingers crossed for you that you hit a claim ticket soon.

      I surely know that. It's still frustrating. I don't take it as a it will be better next time. It's a one case scenario of frustration. 

      I'm only down $48 after playing through over $600 in cards in the last month. I'm also cashing in a winner on Friday. Will try again.

      If any of you wouldn't mind rooting for me, I'd love to quit my job and move on with my life.

          Double checked my duds, and found a $20 winner in the stack of Flamingo duds. A #16 match that I missed somehow, perhaps due to the cloudiness of a frustrating losing streak. (Still was a horrible roll)

           

          Now, question. Should I:

          1- Continue with my resolve of not playing and deposit it in the bank account

          or

          2- Reinvest it in four $5 tickets (Maximum Debt, Losing Streak, or Flamingo?), two $10 tickets, or one $20 ticket? (Or maybe 10 $2 tickets, 5 of each of the new game from Publix)?

            Dracos, if you think luck doesn't support you, then temporarily, go with the following option:

            1- Continue with my resolve of not playing and deposit it in the bank account.

              Oh, my luck has been HORRIBLE in recent weeks. Unbelievably bad, disproportionately bad considering how much I've spent on tickets. I've gotten like a $0.10-$0.15/$1.00 return rate on $20 tickets and $25 tickets.

               

              That's what I needed to hear. Thanks for being the voice of reason for me, Krissam. Smile I'm going to put the money toward a bill early so I'm not even tempted.

                I don't think I've had a "winner" in almost a month now. I've been keeping track of every ticket I play, how much I won/loss since the beginning of the new year and so far the most I've won is $40 (actually $30 since I had to pay $10 for the ticket) on a $10 flamingo multiplier game. It's amazing what keeping records will show you. I've actually had better luck playing ez match on fantasy 5 and lucky money tickets than scratch offs. Which brings me to my question has anyone gotten an email from the lottery offering coupons for quick pick tickets i.e. you buy powerball get free fantasy 5? I printed out mine and took it to the store but the cashier couldn't figure it out. The directions for what the cashier needs to do is on the printout. I'm just wondering if it's legit or scam.

                  Those promotions are legit. FL Lottery does email out coupons occasionally. Publix probably will honor it, but food stores might not have a clue of what you're talking about.

                   

                  Also, the Orlando scratchoff tickets can be bad. I bought so many duds there last week. Horrible return rates. (16 $20 Flamingo tickets with only 2 winners for $20 and $25 - yeah, that bad!)

                      I personally vote high 600's (615k-625k range if available). 

                       

                      Good luck Ronnie!

                          10 books in that range alone, what!?!? 

                           

                          If I had $6k to blow, I'd buy those up for sure. I hope you find a $500 or up win to make this continue to be sustainable for you. =) Or better yet, one of the three jackpots!

                              Had a family member passing through Gainesville today pick me up some 50X tickets at AK's (along with some Super Millions). The Super Millions were all losers along with 11 of the 12 50X tickets (with one $15 win). I exist to vacuum up duds.
