    WTG Dracos! If I remember the liability report was that the last $100K prize left? Perhaps there still is a chance then that a $3M is still lurking out there somewhere.

    Do you have any info on places that still sell SM? Haven't seen that ticket around at the locations I've visited for awhile.

      I'd like to know this twoo, especially Tampa Bay area retailers!

        Here are the big wins, including my biggest win of all time. I was extremely lucky these past two days, and the chase finally paid off. I am officially done chasing tickets/playing scratchoffs this hardcore. I really appreciate the support from everyone on this community. 

         

        Super Million Books:

        733850: 

        Total return: $935/$600

         

        733829 - 

        Total return: $101,340/$600 (Yep, you read that right. I'm going to be able to pay off all my student loans, and be debt free!) 

         

        I can post the specific winning ticket numbers, and other data if anyone is curious. Here's the pictures...

         

         

         

        First Super Symbol

         

         

         

         

         

        And my biggest win of all time...there were several duds before this hit. The $1k Super Millions winner came right after.

         

         

        I was shocked to see the $100k prize still existed. It gives me hope that the $3m final jackpot may be out there as well. There certainly are books out there in the relevant ranges. Like always, I'm wishing everyone from the LP fam.

        CONGRATS DRACOS!!!! I know it's been a rough road for you at times, but it's amazing to see it finally pay off!

          Thanks everyone! I appreciate your support, and the guidance many of you have given me over the past year.

           

          @ Dragonsofra - Sorry to hear about your tough streak, and I hope you find something huge so. People like us who get compulsive urges need to find a way to play with moderation, or stop entirely. As you already know the financial implications of continually playing. I found my CC debt decreasing, and my student loan payments only being the minimum when I started playing scratchoffs. 

           

          @Bke - I purchased the ticket at: 

          One Stop Chevron #3

          1228 / SUPER MILLIONS

          1

          3

           

          128 W US Highway 90, Lake City  (386) 755-0717

           This store apparently has lots of huge winners, and is one of the high traffic places in Lake City. I ended up driving into Lake City just to buy 2 books from this particular store. These were hot books!

           

          @ Speeddmonn- If you drive into Gainesville, AK Kwik is the largest retailer of scratchers in the city with over 100 books in display. Lake City definitely has alot more winners, and see the info above for where I bought the winning ticket.

          @ Zzplay - I have the reports for Super Millions in Gainesville. AK Kwik has 6 books: 673k, 682k, 682k, 682k, 699k, and 708k.  There's a few places that have it in Lake City, and a bunch of places that show as having books in Palatka area. 

           

          @ KFLA - You're right, it has been a long journey. I appreciate your wisdom, and sound advice always. You were always the voice of reason in recommending playing moderately, and I intend to follow your advice by stopping my lotto play/gambling cold turkey. I realize I got extremely lucky, and if I keep playing statistically I'm likely to go right back in the hole. In regards to Super Millions in Tampa area,  the only reports I have for Tampa area are about 2 months old, so they're likely very inaccurate. I'd email your rep asking for store locations. I can post the information from 2 months ago, but I doubt they're still accurate. 

           

          Super Millions books are very hard to find. I stopped by the Sun Food Mart in Gainesville, and the owner said he was trying to get books. The Lotto rep gave it to AK Kwik, and Lake City One Stop Chevron (Where I found the $100k winner on Friday) because those stores sell alot more tickets. I really think the $3M prize is still out there, and there are also a few $20k, $10k, and $5k prizes out there along with a decent number of $1k prizes remaining on the game. 

           

          @ Duckman- Do you know roughly how much a person would receive from the $100k on the spot? I've read about itemizing deductions for gambling losses on taxes. Have you ever been audited for this? I hear they want a record/log of all gambling. Would they want pictures of losing tickets, too? Since a good chunk gets withheld, does that person get some of it back after claiming taxes assuming they have an equal amount of losses? I have gigantic shoe boxes of duds, and I'm going to try to find as many duds as I can.

              Thanks for the Info Dracos. Do you know any places south of G-Ville Like Ocala/Marion County where SM is selling?

                  Thanks, is this info from a few months ago? I may check out the place in Dunnellon since that seems to be the closest.

                      This  info is actually only 3 days old. I requested it right before I decided to adventure off into Lake City. The entire story is so hilarious. My bank was closed, so I ended up doing cash back at a Walmart buying Snicker Bars and taking out $100 cash back each time. Palatka area seems to have quite a few spots as well with SM. 

                       

                      Wishing you, and everyone else who decides to play the best!

                        Thanks everyone! I appreciate your support, and the guidance many of you have given me over the past year.

                         

                        @ Dragonsofra - Sorry to hear about your tough streak, and I hope you find something huge so. People like us who get compulsive urges need to find a way to play with moderation, or stop entirely. As you already know the financial implications of continually playing. I found my CC debt decreasing, and my student loan payments only being the minimum when I started playing scratchoffs. 

                         

                        @Bke - I purchased the ticket at: 

                        One Stop Chevron #3

                        1228 / SUPER MILLIONS

                        1

                        3

                         

                        128 W US Highway 90, Lake City  (386) 755-0717

                         This store apparently has lots of huge winners, and is one of the high traffic places in Lake City. I ended up driving into Lake City just to buy 2 books from this particular store. These were hot books!

                         

                        @ Speeddmonn- If you drive into Gainesville, AK Kwik is the largest retailer of scratchers in the city with over 100 books in display. Lake City definitely has alot more winners, and see the info above for where I bought the winning ticket.

                        @ Zzplay - I have the reports for Super Millions in Gainesville. AK Kwik has 6 books: 673k, 682k, 682k, 682k, 699k, and 708k.  There's a few places that have it in Lake City, and a bunch of places that show as having books in Palatka area. 

                         

                        @ KFLA - You're right, it has been a long journey. I appreciate your wisdom, and sound advice always. You were always the voice of reason in recommending playing moderately, and I intend to follow your advice by stopping my lotto play/gambling cold turkey. I realize I got extremely lucky, and if I keep playing statistically I'm likely to go right back in the hole. In regards to Super Millions in Tampa area,  the only reports I have for Tampa area are about 2 months old, so they're likely very inaccurate. I'd email your rep asking for store locations. I can post the information from 2 months ago, but I doubt they're still accurate. 

                         

                        Super Millions books are very hard to find. I stopped by the Sun Food Mart in Gainesville, and the owner said he was trying to get books. The Lotto rep gave it to AK Kwik, and Lake City One Stop Chevron (Where I found the $100k winner on Friday) because those stores sell alot more tickets. I really think the $3M prize is still out there, and there are also a few $20k, $10k, and $5k prizes out there along with a decent number of $1k prizes remaining on the game. 

                         

                        @ Duckman- Do you know roughly how much a person would receive from the $100k on the spot? I've read about itemizing deductions for gambling losses on taxes. Have you ever been audited for this? I hear they want a record/log of all gambling. Would they want pictures of losing tickets, too? Since a good chunk gets withheld, does that person get some of it back after claiming taxes assuming they have an equal amount of losses? I have gigantic shoe boxes of duds, and I'm going to try to find as many duds as I can.

                        You should get a check for $75,000 (with $25,000 withheld for taxes). Took about 15 minutes at the regional office. They may ask if you want your picture taken - I declined, don't need the publicity Smiley

                        Depending on your situation, you could get back several thousand dollars as a tax refund. Be sure to keep all the old non-winning tickets, both online games and scratch tickets purchased this year. A log of dates purchased helps (online games have store location ID number and date on them) in case of an audit. If you are not sure of deductions and how to file, it may be worth spending a little to have an accountant help this year (although that is not required as you can do that on your own if you are comfortable with it)...

                          Haha, yeah I think I'll decline to have my picture taken as well. 

                           

                          Thanks for the advice. I'm currently counting my stack of losers, and I should have about $25k-$30k in losers. I'm going to be getting another $30k in losers from a friend, so in total I should be able to write off around $60k at least. Maybe up to $70k depending on how many more losers I find. 

                           

                          I'm definitely going to seek help from an accountant this year just to make sure I do it right. I appreciate your insight!

                              For those of you that like me have bought a ton of $200MS and/or Power 8's tickets, now is the time to do double-checking if you haven't already. Last day to claim on them is December 6th.
