Well, scratch offs or me.  Lets start with me, quickly.  In 2016, I haven't had a whole lot of joy here in Highlands County.  Between bad tickets and  bad cells in the body, it's been kind of a crappy year.  I've been fighting lung cancer since 11/15, but hey, I'm still alive.  In June of 2016, I learned my half inch tumor had shrunk to the size of a spot, thanks to prayer, 3 three week sessions of chemotherapy, and 30 doses of radiation.  Unfortunately, it spread...spots showed up in my brain and also my adreanel glands.  I have had 10 doses of radiation to my presently bald (but still sexy) head, and am midway through 2 of 5 chemo sessions.  As of now, no dehydration, no weight loss, and still no real pain.  I want to thank all my lottery posters who have wished me well in the past and to let you know that I haven't given up, nor lost the war.  RC Buckeye, BuyLow, Ralphie, Yellow Pig, Gillyrunks, Schmucktelly (how is your father-in-law doing?) and to gatorsrock...a big thank you, sir.  I appreciate ALL of you...

I haven't posted anything since Jan. of this year, but I have been reading the board.  Man, you guys have this down to a science!  I want to say hello to EMT Adam,  and way to go on the fantastic summer you had.  Amazed you won big twice, and blessed at the way you took care of your family.

Now...new games, right?  Yesterday I bought 15 of the Quick Cash tickets, #8-22.  8 losers, leaving me with 7 winners.  Beat the odds, did I. 

won on 9, 10, 11, 13, 16, 18, and 22 (single 10.00 match) for a total of a whopping 22.00.  I'm a winner!!!  This afternoon, I got another 15 tickets, #35-49, and this time I lost on 9 tickets, leaving me with 6 winners.  Won on 33, 36, 37, 41, 44, and 49 for a whopping total of 10.00.  Lost 5.00 today, but plus 2.00 on the new game, so I can try tomorrow, same place.  Book # 0019069.  I am going to keep playing these tickets, 15 at a time, until I find both symbols.  Then graduate to the 2.00 game.

It's nice to be here again, and as always, I wish all of you well as you hunt for that elusive white whale.  Thanks for your friendship...now go show me some more winning pics, ok?

        Tricky. I didn't see that at first, either. The three like $50 prizes also make another $50 win to bring it to $100. Neat.

        I wonder how many of these prizes are going to be missed because, in spite of the triple play name and instructions, folks just aren't used to having the combo of number matching and like-prizes. I expect many of the tickets that only win on like prizes will be trashed.

          The Publix by my house finally out the $20 Gold Rush Doubler in their vending machine.  I purchased 5 after work today.  #17-21, all losers.  Another crap scratcher from Florida Lottery.

              The odds of hitting $500 on it is the best of any ticket, 1 in 179. But the jackpots and higher prizes on it are far more scarce. 

               

              They have a "10x" symbol with a $20 under it. Additionally, in the "Doubler" box, it is possible to earn the "doubler" icon and in the numbers/prize area only have a $10 winner for a doubled prize of $20. That's an absolute insult, in my opinion.

                You are so right.  The three prize amounts jumped out at me right away.  Paid no attention to the two matching numbers.  Big thumbs up, Lucid!!!

                        waiting on store owner to activate the tickets. He hasn't showed up in 2 days.   Employee can't activate.   But employee knows there are 2 rolls of holiday millions and 2 of super millions in the back vault.

                        I am not in hurry.  I'll wait till owner activates the tickets and then go and scoop it all. It's a nasty ghetto area and big tickets are going slow   ;) . So fingers crossed. ..

                        I am very confident, one of these days, I'll win big. It's only a matter of time. Kinda young to retire though. 

                         

                        Biggest prizes I've won so far. 

                         

                        20k - Once  ( 600 million high roller in 2008)

                        10k-3 times ( gold rush, BDB)

                        1K - 5 times

                        500- Stopped counting

                        100- Doesn't excite me

I hope no one has to go through that one day and my heart goes out to you.

                              Welcome back Chdicki, and I'm glad to hear you're doing well. You'll be in my prayers, although it sounds like the chemo treatment is going well. I can't even begin to imagine the challenges you've faced this past year with lung cancer. I remember reading through many of your posts from back in the day, chdicki. I'm wishing you all the best of luck on the new $1 and $2 tickets, and that your health continues to improve for the better.

                               

                              @ Ronnie - Thanks for pointing out chdicki's post to me. I can't believe I missed it even though it was at the top of the forum page! :/ chdicki is a legend on $1 and $2 tickets and been a part of this community for years.

                               

                              @ FloridaWinner - Wow, a $20k win is such an impressive feat. It sounds like you've been playing for quite a while. I'm wishing you the best of luck, and hoping you'll find that big claim!
