Well who wants to play guess that prize? LOL Went to Winn Dixie tonight for some spaghetti and had a employee pick my ticket. 8 matched but I"m imagining the pastabilities of what it could be. In reality I know it's probably $5 or at best $10 but what about $250,000 lol.http://postimg.org/image/6976vjfwb/

5 bucks I'm guessing.  Still better than all the duds I've been getting off 5 dollar tickets.

              I can't believe the GO winners are FINALLY showing up .... very tempting ... but with a new car payment and an A/C that recently went out I doubt I have spent $20 on tickets this month

                Nice win there. I love Monopoly (the board game) but the scratchers don't seem to love me lol. Jase save that $20 for next month, apparently they are doing another holiday millionaire raffle.

                  Played through a bunch of lotto today, and overall got my ass kicked. I'm going to try the new Holiday tickets on Tuesday, but after that I'm going into lotto hibernation with the exception of maybe buying a few holiday raffle tickets. 

                   

                  The pictures below are my highest wins from today, but do not let them fool you. I'm definitely in the negative by several hundred bucks after playing through almost 3 books, and a bunch of random $25 Misfortune tickets (which absolutely wrecked my wallet). For anyone out there reading this considering playing scratch off tickets, this is what the ugly looks like. (Turning $600 into maybe $100 after playing through dozens of $20-$25 tickets) 

                   

                  Found some Holiday Gifts books in lower ranges. Found one book in the 55k range which I played through, and a book even in the 23k range in Miami. I also stopped by places which had books in the 97k, and 112k range.

                   

                   

                  Out of the two $10 Holiday Gift books I played through, I got "meh" results. Only a single $100 winner, so in the hole by quite a bit here...

                   

                  This was a "one and done". I bought one to see what book number it was on (and didn't want to get in a lengthy battle trying to explain to the cashier what book numbers are because communicating with this cashier was already challenging. 

                   

                   

                  I also played through a book and a half of Super Millions, and got a break even on the first book. The second book, however, was pretty bad. Books were 731k, and 721k. I also stopped by several places in Miami and discovered that the Super Millions books were in the low 600k range, or early 700k ranges (like 708k) and decided they weren't worth playing. 

                   

                   

                  I cashed these winners in at Publix, and then made the mistake of buying their last 6 $25 Fortunes in a row. The book number was 423k. ALL SIX WERE LOSERS. At least one winner would have been nice, but $150 spent for a $0 return? That is a nasty sting. Purchasing 75 $2 tickets would have yielded a better return. I know that $25 Fortune is overdue for several $1m prizes, and likely a $10m prize and took a gamble. Overall, I'm done several hundred bucks from my weekend splurge. I'm going to try the new Holiday Millions tickets on Tuesday, and then I'm done playing aside from buying a few raffle tickets. 

                   

                  I bought my first few draw game tickets today, so maybe I might stick to buying $10-$20 worth of those every pay day instead of literally tossing money away with scratch off tickets. For anyone looking to quit scratchers, playing the $25 Fortune ticket is a great way to increase the desire to quit after encountering ridiculously long dud streaks like 6 losers in a row on a $25 game. Absolutely sickening.

                    I get the same type of results with the $25 fortune ticket. Nearly always a dud and the most I've ever won back on it was $30. But usually I am just a one and done & don't chase. If I ever happen to be at the right place and right time and right ticket then so be it, but from seeing costly experiences like yours is an easy free lesson to not buy multiple tickets, especially at a $25 price point. Thanks for sharing.

                        It's like the casino. They bait you with a nice win in the beginning then you end up playing more thinking you can hit the jackpot until you've lost what you've won and more. It's better just one and done or if you must play multiple tickets one a day at different locations.

                          @BuyLow- Yep. Sounds typical of the lotto. I stopped by a 7-Eleven in Royal Palm Beach today with an insanely large collection of scratch tickets, and apparently they sold a $20k winner on the $25 Fortune ticket yesterday.

                           

                          @JAB5- I agree wholeheartedly. I think your approach is the smartest, and I'm glad my posts have helped encourage others to see the harsh reality as far as what lottery returns can look like. I started off my lottery journey last year being up $2,500 at one point, but I have seen went into the negative by several thousand dollars by playing various different games like $10 Holiday Gifts, 200 MS, 50X The Cash, and Super Millions. I'm at a point where I'm going to just go cold turkey again because it doesn't seem like I can catch a break. With how much I'm in the hole by, I would need a $5000-$10k hit to consider playing scratchers regularly. 

                           

                          @ Speed - I agree wholeheartedly, the lotto is like the casino in many ways. Anyone who is fortune enough to hit a jackpot, or very large prize has the buying power it takes to play through scarce games. The average joe who doesn't get lucky is just going to get into debt playing the lottery if they play it long and frequent enough.

                           

                          Today I found a decent number of winners to recoup losses from yesterday. ..

                           

                          My first time seeing a $100 win on the $5 Wheel of Fortune ticket. I was beginning to think these didn't exist...

                           

                          I bought two $25 Fortune tickets from a Publix in Royal Palm Beach, found this. It seems I'm allergic to winners above $200...

                           

                           

                          I spent about $20 on various different draw games, and then encountered 3 losers on the $20 Monopoly in a row. I also encountered 4 losers on the $20 Gold Rush Doubler in a row. I put the rest of the money back in my bank account, paid off part of a bill early, and will begin another 1-2 week break from scratchers.

                            Saw all the recent wins and decided to go out tonight and grab a few tickets. Purchased 3 of the new Gold Rush #24, #25, and #26. Got this on #25

                             

                             

                             

                            I was tempted to keep playing, but I will wait til tomorrow morning.
