      Speaking of tickets being in reverse order..... I was in a Publix a few days ago and was buying $20 Monolopoly. Asked the lady what number ticket the roll was on... 23 she says..   I tell her Ill take the rest and she starts pulling.... and pulling... and I realize they had the book loaded backwards and started selling from ticket 29....  I stopped her and just took 3.  Never saw that in a counter before like that

          I've never seen a Publix do anything but sell 000 first (they tear it off and tuck it holder) (helps with shift counting) and then do in reverse order at counter  ... and machines reverse with 000 being last

            Each Publix comes with an old man sitting on bench next to lottery machine scratching tickets as his groceries sit ... I love to watch what they buy ... 4 of 1 style or across the machine in a row

              I think all my Publix stores have a different set of tickets (but the closest one has mostly went to all new and doubling up on all the tickets) ... but they are in 7-11 WaWa Winn-Dixie as well

              I can't speak for anything but Publix, but all of them should have mostly identical tickets with the machines having identical layouts as I've been told at multiple Publix's that corporate tells them what to put in it. The counter may have differences between stores though depending on what they still have in stock. And I have 1 Publix that has a larger display than others because they don't have that "in-counter" display - and they carry some that others don't, like Lucky for Life and a crap load of $1 and $2 tickets.

                I need the Publix addy with a ton of $1 and $2 tickets ;-)   Here they are very different .. some stores still have the icky old machines that you can't buy reg lotto on .. some still carry WS and WOF ... most do the $10 $20 Flamingo/Monopoly ... most only have the Monopoly/New$1 $2 $3 $5 tickets  but here and there you will see other $1 $2 games if they aren't doubling up on the Monopoly games  ... and of course the crossword games that ppl love for some reason

                  Completely off topic, but I stopped in the store that I bought the big winner from tonight and bought 5 of the Lucky 200,000 A Year for Life, tickets. I never played these before.  And, I might add, they are a PAIN to scratch..

                  Anyways...

                   

                  Tickets...

                   

                  21 - $40

                  22-  L

                  23 -  $100

                  24 -  $25

                  25 - $100 

                   

                  =)

                  Wow, you did well on the $20 LFL. I hate you, that ticket has literally emptied my wallet. I've encountered 11 duds in a row on this game! (Total $220 loss instantly)

                   

                  The total rolls are 50 tickets, so 20 additional tickets than the standard $20 roll. Despite how bad this ticket has kicked my ass, and how impossible it is to scratch...I am just drawn to the yellow ticket.

                   

                  Gratz on the wins man!

                    Wow, congratz on the $40 win on a $1 ticket Jase! That is harder to find than the $100 prize lol.

                     

                    Hope you continue to find some nice hits bro. Smile

                      At your Publix, how fast do they go through LFL rolls?

                       

                      I ordered the instant liability report, and saw about 70% of tickets were sold. The 200k/yr prize was at 80% claimed, and the 50k/yr prize was at 60% claimed. The 50k/yr prize is supposed to be "overdue" on this game.

                       

                      Then again, at $1000 a roll, and with a track record of sometimes having 11 duds in a row...this game might be the worst one out.

                        I couldn't say, I never buy them and I've actually been going to this Publix less.

                        And who knows, maybe the 50k/yr prize did get sold and someone missed it.

                          Probably sold and an enraged someone scratched a hole through the ticket right on the winning number.

                            It is possible, considering how hard that ticket is to scratch. That one dude who keeps "thanking the FL Lotto for every $100 winner" on Twitter is probably the most likely to hit on the $20 LFL ticket with how much he plays.

                             

                            I'm looking to play some scratch tickets tonight. I'm considering playing a few tickets at AK Kwik, Publix, the Sun Store in Gainesville, and maybe random gas stations.

                             

                            Thinking about playing:

                            $20 Flamingo

                            $20 Monopoly (maybe not, since it could have a dry streak coming up...thoughts?)

                            $10 Flamingo (maybe 2-4)

                            Super Millions (Probably not, considering there's only 1 $100k prize remaining, 1 jackpot, and we know the jackpot ticket will be found in Cape Coral)

                            $10 Jackpot (See above explanation)

                             

                            What do you guys think I should do? The 2 tickets from a roll method, and then move on? Publix, or AK Kwik? I was considering 50X, but I don't know what's left at AK Kwik. I might check to see if they have $10 Holiday Gifts, and scratch through a low number book. That ticket has been better than other $10 tickets to me.

                              If you do 50x, you might want to be sure to look back at the posts about it in the last few pages. If none of the book numbers work out good, personally I would go with the $10 holiday.
