The suspense is terrible. Lol.

I know you said you had to stop last night cause of a headache.. I don't know how you did that, I'd have been determined to finish it off before the end of the night.


Good luck.

I drove 5 hrs total for work and was there for 10 hrs or something like that so by the time i got home i was exhausted. made the bad decision of asking if my gf wanted to help and then this morning she was begging for me to wait lol..hadda just give in..ive heard stories of big prizes around alot of lower prizes so we shall see..about halfway through this book now lol(the new one)

    I'm wishing you the best of luck Ronnie!

     

    Also folks, a $1m prize on the $20 Monopoly has been claimed in JACKSONVILLE. I'm so happy for all the Jacksonville winners lately. Smile

      If anyone wants to play 200MS, the following are the shops near

      a) Jacksonville/Daytona beach:

      King Food Mart - 667 W King Street, Saint Augustine  (904) 810-5606 - Received - 1

      Kangaroo Express #2505 - 399 S US 17/92, Debary  (386) 668-2470 - Received - 1

      Kangaroo Express #2574 - 1520 State Road 40, Ormond Beach  (386) 672-1686 - Received - 1

       

      b) Pensacola: 

      Tom Thumb #25 - 5191 Ward Basin Road, Milton  (850) 623-8830 - Received - 1

      140004966 Circle K - 2200 US Highway 29 South Suite, Cantonment  (850) 937-8710 - Received - 2

      140007610 Circle K - 3804 Garcon Point Road, Milton  (850) 626-6277 - Received - 1

       

      c) Panama City:

      There are shops that have 200 MS near Orlando/Tampa also. Is there any point in playing this ending game? Any one wants to give their feedback???

       

      Edit: I found 2 books of 200MS in Miami DO (received and not activated) with higher book numbers (553/555). I remember someone posted in this forum saying that probability of having grand prize in books > 550 is slim.. Is it true? Anyone cares to give comment on this?

        I have no interest in playing this game ever again.

         

        I'd rather buy 2 rolls of $1 tickets than play a roll of 200MS. That's exactly the return rate I got when I last bought a roll of these. $205/$600. Disgusting. Plus, so many of these tickets have been "lost/destroyed". I'd say odds of finding a jackpot on 50X The Cash is significantly better. I'd be more willing to bet the last $10 Holiday Gifts jackpot is way more likely to hit than a 200MS jackpot.

                    LMAO! It would be hilarious if it were Joan Ginther, and if she decided to finish off 200MS. Man, this post cracked me up.

                     

                    Whoever it is, it is definitely someone who browses Lottery Post! Wink Joan, are you there?

                      I am really surprised to hear the same reply from all the shop owners!!!! I dont know how to react to this!!! Is 200 MS game really worth taking such chances!!!! I am confused now!!

                      Either we need to hear a news soon that a 200 MS jackpot has been won!!! or lot of active/passive people in this forum dodged all the bullets from 200MS!!!

                        200MS, and 50X are super scarce with "several prizes remaining" on the website. The $5 Power 8S is a similar ticket in the same status of scarcity (2 jackpots remaining). I don't blame people for playing these tickets. Statistically, the chances of winning may be higher if there's fewer tickets in circulation and jackpots out there. In theory, your chances would be significantly better.

                        When Gatorsrok led the $10 "Holiday Gifts Campaign" =p, he encouraged many of us to start playing the game. He shared the instant liability report showing less than 10% was remaining with 2 jackpots. This is when myself, EMTAdam, sunny, and many others started playing that game like crazy. I know I probably scratched at least 500+ $10 Holiday Gift tickets. I can certain understand the rationale of targeting a game that is scarce with a disproportionate number of jackpots remaining.

                        Although, this isn't necessarily the case of odds being "better" if the jackpots were destroyed/tossed in the trash. The world won't know, because 1- FL Lottery destroys tickets without accounting for them, and 2- People sometimes toss big winners.

                         

                        I hope you hit a jackpot on $200MS Krissam, and Ronnie hits a jackpot on 50X The Cash. It would be neat to see some lottery post fam hit it big again. Smile

                          Does the FL lottery really destroy tickets? How do we know and isn't that illegal for them to do??

                            BuyLow, It's either intentionally or unintentionally(hurricane,floods,fire,theft,thrown away by customer by mistake) destroying the tickets...

                            It's been 7 years since 200MS game was introduced and there were so many natural/man made disasters happened at different parts of florida....The issue is not this but FL Lotto doesn't keep track of books that were destroyed and so, all the players have been under the impression that grand prizes are still out there when it may not be there in reality!!!

                            FL Lotto is accountable for this as they dont want to change their procedures/practices and change the remaining prizes left when they come to know or atleast keep procedures in place to know about tickets/books destroyed thru district offices/sales reps!!!

                            Logically speaking, the chances of getting a grand prize in 200ms is very very remote as it's been 7 years. There are 316,296 prizes still left in 200 MS Game with latest instant liability report posted in this forum which means at least 5271 rolls/books (316296/60) should be in existence but there are only 24 (and now, only 15 or so left) in reality!!!! So, it doesn't make sense to believe that Grand Prizes or Big prizes are left in this game for now!!!

So, it doesn't make sense to believe that Grand Prizes or Big prizes are left in this game for now!!!

                              This pretty much sums up the $200MS game.  I put a lot of money into it as well and it looks like none of the last top 2 prizes will be won.  Obviously it is possible they are still out there. My best guess is that they should be on a roll number between 540,000 to 555,000 (tops).  But I think that the game was so old that most retailers returned their half sold out rolls when new $10 games came out that thousands of partially activated rolls were deactivated.  At least one if not both of the top prizes were likely in that group. 

                              I am very close to tapping out.  One of the only games I am partially pursuing are whatever $10 Holiday Gifts are left - they too could face the same problem of the $200MS since many retailers may have returned the partially sold rolls after Christmas or New Years and a top prize was deactivated (like what almost happened to EMTAdam).  I will pick up Super Millions tickets if I find them in the 700,000+ range and the $2M Jackpot tickets if I find them in the 270,000+ range.  Once those games are sold out or discontinued, I am going into lotto hibernation.
