Bought another $25 Fortune from a new roll tonight. Will scratch off later. Wish me luck at ending my losing streak.

    @ Ronnie - Here's Duckman's big win on page #32 on this thread! 

     

    Also, Skeptic, another legend bought a book of 100X The Cash that paid out $4000 (with two $1k wins, and 3 $500 wins in one book). Man, that's almost unheard of these days. The only comparable experience I've seen was that one $20 Monopoly b ook with a $1k, $500, and $200 winner in the first few tickets.

     

    Gatorsrok also hit $500, and $1k in a single book on the old Monopoly! He also hit $1k on the $20 Lucky For Life ticket, which is amazing as that ticket has been so rough! 

     

    Reading through the old days on this thread makes me feel nostalgic. Has anyone heard from Skeptic lately?

    @Dracos - those were the days.  It felt like the $500 and $1k wins were attainable.  Now, it feels just like pure luck.  As far as skeptic, he has not been around for a few months now.  I wonder if he is still a member.  All of his pictures of winners do not show up on this thread.  Maybe he gave it up.  I hope he is well. 

    On a side note, I managed to buy my $10 in lotto quickpicks.  Maybe I'll get lucky again.

        I'm worried about Skeptic. I really hope he's okay, and logs in soon to at least say hello. 

         

        @ Ronnie - Np bro. Yes, I've played with about $45 to experiment with the new tickets. I've lost most of it playing Maximum debt, however. That's all I'll be playing until Jan 2017. By not playing, I'll be saving up enough to eliminate all my credit card debt. Then, my next financial goal is to attack my student loan debt by Jan 2018! 

        @ Gators -  For sure, I look back and it seems like Gold Rush Tripler was infinetely better than most $20 tickets now. Best of luck on those quickpicks! 

         

        I got bored, so I decided to look up my saved photos of my biggest wins of all time. Here they are below. Please note, I've only been playing scratchoffs for maybe 8 months. Also, all of these big wins took place in Jacksonville, Fl. My luck has gotten worse when I moved to Gainesville, and the scratchoff tickets in the Gainesville area make Jacksonville's payouts look amazing lol.  At one point, I was ahead of the lottery because I won 6 $500 prizes over the span of one week, 5 on the weekend on the $20 Gold Rush ticket. @ Kamba, if you're reading this...this is what I mean about beginner's luck. I only played a few tickets a week back then, and eventually gave all this money back and plus alot more to the FL Lotto.

          I understand completely. I was just truly surprised how good of a run I had till the last few weeks I've had very few wins.

          Waiting till later to scratch off the latest.

          I hear some people in here talking about not hitting more than $40 in a long period and I had 3 $100 winners with little investment in less than a week last month.

            The tickets go through "hot" and "cold" streaks. Zebekiya, a lottery veteran in New York posted his theories, and observations about printing, ticket distribution, and a variety of other topics relating to scratchoffs. He mentioned something called "seeding" where some lotteries intentionally send big wins in some areas often to stimulate revenue in that area by boosting local morale. People think "Omg, that guy just won $1k" and then go around and tell their neighbors, dentist, cat, etc. 

            When I first started playing, I had a system when I started the big tickets. I'd only buy tickets in the range of #18-#25 on Florida Cash, or #05-#13 (preferably #7-13) on $ 20 Gold Rush. I had noticed that I had a "higher" likelihood of winning my money back whenever I bought tickets in these ranges, and noticed a tendency of the other parts of the rolls being "cold" in my area. Of course, we know big winners can come anywhere. Even tickets 000, or the last ticket on the book. 

             

            The one nice thing, and bad thing about $20 and $25 tickets is how quickly you can gain or lose money. Those $100 winners are especially common on $25 tickets, but if you get in the habit of chasing, you can lose that + more within the span of 10 minutes. 

             

            It sounds like you're playing it smart, and only doing 1 ticket at a time. Please continue to follow this philosophy, I really wish I stayed firm to this rule. The 1 ticket, or 2 tickets at a time is the best way to do it. I've hit $500 on those Gold Rush tickets, and the $1k on the post above from FL Cash following the 2 tickets from roll rule.

              I've been around the gambling industry in one way or another my whole life.

              I've played everything from casino action to daily fantasy sports, poker, sports betting and everything in between.

              I've seen people lose thousands. I know one person from a while back who stole money from family to gamble. I've always been a smart gambler. 

              The more money you have, the more power you have. I try these hobbies in small forms because you have nothing to lose.

              When you start losing thousands, you have a problem. 

              Right now I'm down less than $100 for all the action I've played. It's not life changing. I'll let you know later how the one card I did had. It's been a cold streak lately.

                Welp still trucking along. working on 3 different rolls that are all half way through...nothing bigger than $100 :/ ugh not even one 500 and ive probably scratch 600 tickets already. Starting to feel like this was hopeless the only thing keeping me going is the face that after like 10 books im only down $1000. I will go by a.k hopefully tomorrow but were taking a trip down south (middle of the state) so I might try some scratchers down there. Anyhoo goodluck guys!

                  Another loser tonight. I'm only down $98 since I started more than a month ago, but I am going to take a break probably.

                  I can't believe the cold streak I'm on.

                      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!!!

                      Hey Krissam....read this post yesterday morning and then went shopping with my wife. While waiting on her i walked around outside in parking lot and found a 50 cent box Play 4 from August 4th on the ground. Guess what, i cashed it in for $100.00 this morning. Absolutely agree tickets are getting lost and tossed.  I Agree!

                        Has anyone identified current desirable roll range for $20GR?  Haven't bought any for quite a while because of the reissue and then again delayed touching them because of the two quick hits after the reissue... wondering what range the next winner might be in.

                            Hi, 

                            Me and a couple of friends have purchased 2 FULL books of the new $5 Monopoly! The 1st book, we barely got our money back. The second book, we got a $187 out of a WHOLE roll of scratch offs! These are not worth the paper they're even printed on!  NEVER AGAIN!

                            I don't understand this post. Are you pissed that you bought two full books, out of the 400,000 books that were printed for this game, and you didn't hit it big?

                              Someone fix my math or confirm it for me:

                              FL website shows $5 Monopoly as having 12 grand prizes. Odds of hitting it are 1 in 2,000,000

                              That comes to 24,000,000 tickets.

                              Now.

                              The FLRules filing for the $5 Monopoly shows:

                              200 pools of 180,000 tickets per pool. That comes to 36,000,000 tickets.

                               

                              I checked the FLRules filing for $5 Flamingo and the numbers match, so I'm not crazy - they should match.

                              Gatorsrok? Thoughts?
