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?

Perhaps a planned reissue that hasn't been reflected on remaining prizes page yet?

    They don't update the FLRules when they reorder. And the total grand prizes in the FLR filing shows as 12 still, it'd have to be at 18.


    I emailed them already though. Not expecting a response today. :)

      Nice catch, ghost. I'll be very interested to see how they respond.

        Yeah, the Florida Lottery needs to update their systems and processes. It is 2016, and they generate billions of dollars in revenue. There's no excuse. Manual updating isn't efficient, and there always seems to be mistakes that pop up from human error.

          I'm sure they'll end up saying it's an error on the FL Rules, but I'm curious if it poses any legal issue. Which I made sure to ask too.

                I think I'm on the verge of quitting.  Been buying a lot of $5 dollar tickets this week and almost never win anything.  I'm actually happy if I get a break-even ticket which is just sad.  I agree the days of being able to hit a 100 or even 500 are over.  Might be time to just to just stop and save that money instead of throwing it out the window.

                  At last, I got the response back from FL Lottery on last 9 winning numbers (from March 2015) of 50X game (in sorted order):

                  1224-0051812 (?????!!!!!!)
                  1224-0428844
                  1224-0469799
                  1224-0491627
                  1224-0516062
                  1224-0534145
                  1224-0566747
                  1224-0591534
                  1224-0609869

                  As you can see above, there is a grand prize missing between 428844 and 469799 (somewhere in 450xxx range).... 

                  I did a mistake of asking only last 9 winning numbers(from March 2015) as someone in this forum said FL Lotto reordered at that point..Someone else in this forum can request for the first 12 winning numbers if that gives us more clues on missing numbers...

                  Any help from experts can help us out in finding out what could be the remaining 3 grand prizes....

                    That's a good point, the 435k-455k range does look promising.

                     

                    You did well for us Krissam. The first 12 could be helpful info, but the info you've provided has been very helpful. I'm also surprised at the one hit in book #51812, that tells us one of the earlier jackpots that originally wasn't found was found fairly late.

                     

                    @ Florida Winner - Congratz on the $1k winner on the $10 Jackpot ticket!

                      I took 2 months off from buying scratchers.  This morning I bought some to test the waters and <snip> am I sorry.

                      4 x $25 $10,000,000 Fortune #000-003 = 4 losers

                      5 x $20 Monopoly #023-027 = won $20, rest losers

                      5 x $10 Monopoly = #012-016 all losers

                      5 x $10 Gold Rush #009-013 = all losers

                      So I see Florida lottery scratchers are as bad as ever.  No more for a long time for me.

                        This question is for the serious scratches that buy books. I am considering buying my first book of $2 tickets and $5 tickets. What games of those monetary value should I consider or would I be better of on buying a $10 book? Any advice?

                         

                        Thanks

                          Just posted something similar in the GA thread. I took off 2 weeks and tested the waters today. Ended up losing $220. Scratch tickets are the worst. I wish I could be the occasional buy 1 ticket player.

                            I agree, they have really been flooding the stores with losers lately. $20 back out of $300 spent? What a rip-off.
