The first run was 16 grand prizes, not 12. They then added 8 more on March 25th 2015. So the first run was 368,000 books. Should all be in the post on prior page regarding this.

Ah, okay. So, that definitely brings the 428k book into question.

    INT is definitely In Transit. And I'd say you're on the right track with SET, but I don't know what its exact parameters are. Possibly related to their daily closeouts? In the same way that they scan the book to activate it, I believe they also scan the activation ticket again when the book is sold out (although sometimes they don't do this which is part of what I think leads us to stores that are "supposed" to have games that they don't).

    That is what I was thinking too, though I don't think I've ever seen a store scan a book out - I have seen stores that keep the 'activation' ticket thing and staple it to the end of the book so it's on the last ticket when they pull it. I never understood why - figured maybe just a marker for what game goes there if it isn't refilled immediately, but maybe it's to settle it out.

      I stopped at a little food mart today ... the guy told me he just started selling Lottery 2 days ago and he will get as many scratch-offs as he can as soon as he can ... he had maybe 30 different styles .. I bought a  couple $2's and a few $1's and they were all on 000 ... how does a store start selling tickets and not sell any for 2 days? very odd .... all losers

        Yah. I was waiting for your reply to that post in hopes that you had an idea of approximately how many books are skipped in a run (I assumed some percentage is followed as a general rule). But no such luck I guess unfortunately.

        With Adam's post about seeing a 634 book .. if there are books still in existence that are that high and win #21 was on 609k then there could be a win in the second run at the very end of the run. Someone want to email FL and ask them what the last book printed was? See if they'll provide that info? lol

        Jokes aside, I have a feeling they're willing (or legally have to) provide more information than we realize, so long as it doesn't compromise a game.

          New store, slow traffic.. Maybe he didnt activate his lottery terminal on day 1?  There is a store by me that sells tickets at a very slow pace.. Maybe takes him 2-3 weeks to sell through any 1 book....

              The two things I'm most following (and occasionally buying tickets for) right now are $20 Flamingo Multiplier and $1 500/wk for Life. These games are both overdue. In the case of FM, though I know Monopoly has cannibalized its sales, nothing has been won in almost three months and this was hitting frequently. There's a $5M sitting active somewhere just waiting for Adam (Bang Head) to find it.

                We need a clearing house so books can be bought/shipped between people on here. Want a book that's in Escambia county? LOP user buying sends $ to clearing house, confirms to LOP user in Escambia county - they go buy and ship the book, when buyer receives it, cash it forwarded on to the person who bought it. Lol. Would never work, probably breaks a law of some sort too.

                  yeah ... I don't think you can use USPS to ship tickets (however that might only be over state lines)

                    See, Adam doesn't "find" them. The prizes find him, mostly by showing up at the store across the street from his house. Which is his problem, he moved didn't he? Lotto just needs his new address so they can ship his prizes to the right store.

                    I've been playing the 500wk/life too for the same reason, but a lot of places have it so I'm not very hopeful.

                      Hahahaha, the likely hood of me winning a 3rd top prize again in my lifetime is slim to none.  Winning 2 in a matter of WEEKS is insane. If I won a 3rd time, Id be afraid to go outside in the rain for fear of lightning taking me out... lol

                        I've had 2 trips to Ft.Myers and 1 to Jacksonville cancelled .... I keep thinking there is a ticket waiting for me and then I don't get to go
