Doesn't seem like anyone has an active SM roll in Ocala. A few have the 2M JP but I haven't really played that game much.

How much of these games are sold out and is there an estimation about the total number of books for retail to make it worthwhile yet?

    @ Zzplay- Both Super Millions, and $2,000,000 Jackpot are 99% sold thru.  I've estimated maybe a few hundred Super Million books left across the state, with probably 100 that are in the relevant range for a jackpot hit. $2M jackpot is also pretty <snip> scarce, to be honest. Perhaps comparable numbers, or maybe even less from what I've seen.

     

    @ MrGray- Good call! 

     

    @ Jase - Wow, winning that amount on a $2 ticket must be incredible! This happened at your local Publix?

            Late to the party.  Sorry, Dracos.  First of all, big high five for that wonderful 100K ticket.  Outstanding!!!!  Enjoy your 'breathing room',  and after you get your bills caught up, don;t forget to treat yourself to...what ever makes you happy.  Take the little lady on a 3 day cruise...or buy yourself a new guitar.  Whatever it takes...you certainly deserve it...

            Skeptic, welcome home!  Your stories and photos have been missed by many.  Glad Jim and Steve are well.  Did Jim ever get a decent car from his jackpot ticket?

            To gatorsrock, KFla, Jace, Dracos (again...and again) and others, good winners since mid-October.  I haven;t had any reason to post since the 13th.  I did find 100.00 on Super 7's a few weeks ago...5 matches plus a red 7 for 10.00 each.  Photo is on my wifes's phone, but I can't find it.  Sigh. 

            Let me close by wishing all of you and your families a safe and blessed Thanksgiving week.  If I can stay alive till Thursday, it will have been a year since my 'issue'.  Best wishes to all, and let me see more photos, ok?  Blessings...Clark

                Okay, which one of you guys bought up roll number 725K in SM from AK Qwik? I went hunting for SM tickets. He was down to 3 wrapped rolls and 2 currently active ones, all in the 682-685 range. I passed. So then I tried the other Indian place just North of 39th & NW 6th which is really easy to miss when getting dark. The guy comes across from his house whenever he sees a customer and leaves to go back next door when there's no customers. Anyways, someone bought up 1 of his 2 rolls and left the other on number 41 I think that was in the 682K range. Too low so I passed.

                And those were the only ones I could find. The Kangaroo on Main was out. Sunny on NE8th was out. And the Kangaroo on 326 & 441 in Ocala was also out. I didn't feel like venturing much else. I might try the secluded place in Dunnellon, but it's looking dim.

                I do hope if won of you guys got roll 725K that it returns something decent.

                  Thank you everyone for the congratz, I appreciate it. The hunt has been real, and I feel so blessed. I'm wishing you all the best, and  hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving holiday! 

                   

                  @ Bke - I personally recommend the $10 2,000,000 jackpot ticket. It still has 1 outstanding jackpot, and is EXTREMELY scarce. I'd say the odds of hitting one of the recommend "big prizes" on that game is better than any other $10 game. 

                   

                  @ Skeptic - Congratz on the $500 win! Smile The "four and done" is a start for guys like us!

                   

                  @ Zzplay - Do you mean 732k roll? I bought a Super Millions roll in the 732k range from AK Kwik. It didn't return anything, however. Are you talking about a roll you reserved originally? They might have put it out because of how high in demand it has been lately. 

                   

                  I stopped by the Sun Food Mart, and the owner explained to me AK Kwik and the One Stop Chevron (where I won the $100k) are the two top highest ticket selling locations in our district. Basically, those two stores get "first dibs" on any Super Millions books because of how scarce they are.

                    Oops, i meant Book 708K from your list on the previous page. AK Kwik was down to the ones that are in the 682K range which is the same rolls area that the other conveincence stores had.

                      Looks like you scouted most of the area. I wasn't the one who bought the 708k book, but it shows the interest is pretty high in Super Millions. That's one of the frustrating aspects of the search; stopping by places listed as having a book in stock and having them say "Wha?". There's always the chance they have the book in stock but only a manager is able to access it through their safe. When I was in South FL, I stopped by at least one retailer who admitted he had $10 Holiday books that were literally sitting in a box in the back for many months. 

                       

                      I can tell you Anthony Food Mart has two books, but they're also in the 680k-690k range. I decided to pass on those as well, although technically...anything 682k-737k could be in the range we've been expecting. 

                       

                      The Lake City One Stop Chevron had two books left, I think one in the high 680k range and maybe one in the 690k range. I remember turning both down because they didn't interest me.

                        Hey All!

                        Newbie here to the forum but a long time scratcher.

                        Not a huge spender but have been reading your posts for quite some time.

                        How do you tell what book numbers and which ones are you all looking for.

                        I know of some great little spots that seem to produce pretty good payouts.

                        I would love to help and get in on the chase without loosing my tangible assets.

                          Hey Fla331boyz, welcome to the community! 

                           

                          On the ticket below 1326 is the "game number", the number after that 80.5k is the book number. 

                           

                          Personally, I've been buying Super Millions tickets in the 720k-737k range whenever I've found them. Also, if you see the old $10 Holiday Gifts I'd recommend buying it if it is under the 65k range. These ranges are around where many people expect  the final jackpots to be found.

                           

                          Book number ranges are also relevant in making an informed decision about a purchase. For example, if the FL Lottery posts a picture of a jackpot claimed on a game you can typically read it and determine the book number range. That would tell you not to buy tickets near/at that range to help inform your decision to maximize your chances of winning a jackpot. 

                           

                          Which part of FL are you in? I'm out in Gainesville.

                            Do you have a pic of what those old Holidays look like so I can keep an eye out? It's just the $20 tix, right?
