Thanks for all the comments Smiley

To answer some of the questions, the ticket was purchased from a small convenience store that I usually go to. Stopped by there yesterday and gave them a copy of the ticket and a tip for selling me that ticket. I usually don't buy the higher priced tickets, but on Saturday night's Lotto I had 3 numbers with the the xtra feature for $25 and bought the winning ticket with part of that $25. Had I not won that 3 number lotto ticket for $25 I probably would not have bought it.

Never won anything that large before and after scratching all the numbers and then the winning numbers in the play area, I saw that one number matched. Before scratching off the amount won under the matching number, there was a bit of disappointment that I didn't see a Gold Bar $500 symbol. Then while scratching the dollar amount, it took a few looks to make sure I was seeing it correctly...

I bought just one ticket. Someone had just bought another one of this same ticket before I did, so it's a right-place-at-the-right-time lucky break.

That sounds exciting duckman. I mentioned earlier how I was looking for someone who won a large jackpot if they had bought a whole roll or at least more than one ticket, was there a winner before or after. I guess one ticket is all you really need. Again, congrats and thanks for the info. :-)

    That's awesome duckman. Thanks for the details. I'm sure the experience was amazing! I would have been jumping around seeing that amount! I've only been playing the lottery for a year and my biggest winner is $500 along with like 14 $100 winners. But I hope I hit something good soon along with everyone else here.

          This has been the year that I have spent the least money on Scratch offs. I buy 1 here and there. I don't think about it that much anymore. I do read the forums every time I get a Chance. I must say I have won a couple of $500 Prizes through out the year, but I pretty much have broken even with the lottery this year in terms of scratch off since I am not buying all the time any more. Either Way I Purchased 2 Flamingo Fortunes Last Week and this is what i got. 

           

          Keep moving Forward.

                GOOD FOR YOU LUCKI and CONGRATS !!! I wondered what happened to you. A while back you were an active poster but it seems your new strategy of buying fewer and posting less has paid off.  That 10X500 is a real honey !!! And here I thought Flamingo was just about washed up and ready to be kicked out ? Wonders never cease. Keep up the new strategy and maybe you'll be sharing a win of the kind duckman just picked up.

                    duckman You are THE MAN. You give us some hope to keep playing by sharing this good news. I like best that part of buying only 1 ticket. Sometimes I find myself buying more than one hoping to boost my chances.

                      @Duckman,

                      Great HIT! I mean that is a life changer, I'm sure you know that. Do the rolls end with 029 like they do in PA? So basically ticket #28 was one away from the last ticket in the pack? I realize you may not personally know this, but others reading this flordia section might know?

                       

                      A one and done 100K wham bam thank you mam. You have to be stoked. All I can say is enjoy it! My advice would be to have fun with some of the money and make sure you wind up with something to show for part of it as well!

                       

                       

                      @Lucki723

                       

                      Great 5K hit, while that isn't entirely life changing it is a really nice booster shot in the bank account! Good luck searching for that big winner!

                        Did you buy that ticket from a grocery store or gas station? A vending machine or from behind the counter? Just little tips help out. Thanks and congrats!!!!

                          Thanks guys for the comments. After scratching off the numbers, I had to look at it a few times to make sure I was seeing it right.

                          Here is a photo of the terminal screen at the Jax District Office when they scanned the ticket today:

                          That is FANTASTIC man !!!!! Love to see members here hit it big !!!!!

                          Gonna be about $75K after taxes but you can write of losses and get that $25K back I would start hoarding losers if I were you. Best of luck!
