Dracos, from your latest Instant Liability Report for Super Millions on 08/29, number of prizes still left are 118290 (/30 = 3943 rolls)...But, we can only find 400 rolls thorughout the state!!! Again, there is a huge difference in number of rolls that should be available and available in reality!!!! I don't see any logic in going behind Super Millions also!!!

    You are right. There's a huge discrepancy here. I assume some of the stores I called might have it in stock, but the representative I called didn't care/was too busy to check. 

    In total, I was able to identify 9 different stores in Jacksonville area which claimed to have Super Millions in stock. This excludes the district office, which has 17 books of Super Millions. That's pretty unacceptable, to be honest. With such a huge disparity, the last jackpot of Super Millions may never be found due to being "lost". I'm taking a chance, because...yolo. 

    Still, 9 stores with about 11 different books is a hell of alot less than the projected 73 books projected to be in Jacksonville's district (or 56 if you subtract what the Jax district office has). I'm going to try playing through a bunch tomorrow. Praying for a nice hit, something like several $100 winners or $200 winners, or a $500 winner would be enough to make playing it sustainable.  I'm only going to play books in the 715k-730k range. If I see anything less, I'm not touching it except for maybe a single ticket purchase just to see what book it is on.

      Played through alot of Super Millions 719k, 725k, 726k, 729k, and 733k. Super millions had a super horrible return. The books I went through returned about $245 each, which is sad. $10 books seem to have always given me a much better return. I cleared through about 5-6 locations, and noted some locations as having books too low in the 600k or very low 700k range. 

       

      I probably would have been better off playing $20 Monopoly, or heck...even $20 LFL. I'm perplexed as to how $20 tickets can payout worse than $10 tickets. I don't expect every book to be profitable, obviously. Still, a $400/$600 return would break the bank alot less. 

       

      While I was at a food store in Baldwin, Fl a guy came in and bought 2 $2 Double Deuce. The first ticket was a $400 win, yet I haven't been able to get over a $100 win on a $20 ticket today.

        I felt the same Dracos...It's better to stick with $10 games rather than $20 games as they literally kill the enthusiasm of playing the game!!!

          I called a bunch of places in the Orlando area, and located at least 30 places that have Super Millions. There's still hundreds (upwards to 400) of Super Millions books across the state, although probably 3/4th are over the 700k range. There's alot of "dormant" Super Millions rolls in Winn Dixie/Publix/Kangaroo stores locked away, and probably won't hit the shelves until a manager decides to put them up or a lottery rep swings by and takes them (to redistribute or destroy). When I've called, I notice that cashiers are swift to say they don't have a ticket/game, likely due to having a line in the store and not having the time/wanting to check to see if they have the book. It seems even the FL lottery has difficulty keeping an accurate inventory of their own game, so it is no wonder why and how jackpots prizes go missing/go unclaimed. 

          If $2 tickets return about 50% usually, what's the point in buying books of $20 tickets in only to receive 40%? I understand the payoff is huge and life changing if you find that nice win. After buying through about 4-5 books of Super Millions today, I'm a little disappointed to have only encountered a $100 win as my top hit. One of the books had 3 $100 winners, but still only returned about $400 in total. The more expensive tickets are supposed to return a higher amount per dollar, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Perhaps it ends up being the case when you factor in the few, and extremely lucky who manage to hit a jackpot prize. The average joe can get slaughtered, and end up losing more on a $20 ticket than buying 10 $2 tickets. I've been playing the $2 Double Deuces alot recently, and I can't even tell you guys how many $10-$15 winners I've found when purchasing 5 tickets for $10 at a time. 

          Then again, look at the guy who won $400 on the $2 Double Deuces earlier. He came in, and bought 2 tickets. He walked out a winner lol. The cashier told me someone also won $400 on the $5 Super 7s earlier in his store as well. It is sad when $2 and $5 tickets pay off better than $20 tickets. I bought $40 worth of $2 tickets earlier today, and got $29 back ($25 back from the Double Deuces, and $4 back from the $2 Flamingo. Invested $20 in each). Even $2 tickets seems to be doing a hell of alot better than $20 tickets for me lol.

           

          Anyway, back into lottery slumber for me. I spent way too much today on Super Millions, although I hope the information I've gained can be useful to others and I hope eliminating 5 bad books out of circulation helps someone on this forum have a better chance at hitting the jackpot.

              I really feel sorry for your experience today with Super Millions!!! I wish you all the best of luck with your next try on a new day!!

                Well yesterday was my birthday and I remember how 4 years ago I had won $100 on 2 seperate tickets that day and hoped to win something again. I had won on $2 Loteria & $20 Lucky for Life back then. I played a $2 Easy Money and didn't win anything and called it a day. Just scratched the $10 Monopoly purchased today and gooseeggs as well. Guess times are changing lol.

                          lol, yea it's my camry :)  I usually buy tickets and scratch them in the car while sitting at the gas pump and take pics before cashing them in.

                           

                          The fast 100s 2 dollar tickets have been hot lately.  One of my friends that works at circle K says those have been getting more wins than any other ticket the last few weeks.
