I bought two $5 Happy Holidays tickets today. I won $10 on one of the two tickets so at least  won my money back to kick it off. Also, the clerk that works at the mobile gas station, which stays open 24 hours a day, told me he bought the first two tickets off the roll for himself. So I ended up buying #'s 2 & 3. I think that's kind of messed up considering he was stupid enough to tell me he bought the first two tickets from the new roll, which tells me he's either stealing them or buying them before or after other people get the chance too. He basically has all day to sit back and scope out who wins and looses and purchase his own in the mix of it. The holiday tickets just came out today and he's on the job buying them fresh off the shelf. I will never play there again. That's for sure!!

That's so frustrating, I saw a store owner at the Shell station near me buying a bunch of tickets in his own store a few weeks back, so I will no longer go there.

    I bought 3 of the $10 $5000 a week for life tickets last night and won back only $10. I feel kind of silly for doing so considering a lady from Gainesville just won the last top prize from the game the other day. Didn't notice until I wasted my money and checked the Florida lottery site afterwards. I'm sure they will scrap the game very soon since it's nearly mission impossible to win anything large from it now.

      I was buying the $5,000 a week for life tickets because I knew a top prize was due.  Now that it hit, I am done with the game.  I am sure the lotto will retire it pretty soon.

        Yeah gatorsrok. I was playing those tickets for a while, winning a lot of $50 prizes here and there, but I was very impressed with your winnings. Especially the two "star" win alls you got back to back and your latest $500 win on it. Very nice finds!!

            I bought $200 worth of tickets this morning.  This is what I bought and the results:

            2 x$25 100x the Cash - all losers

            3 x $20 New Gold Rush - all losers

            3 x $10 50x the Cash - all losers

            4 x $5 Happy Holidays- won $5 twice, won $20 and one loser

            4 x $10 $1,000,000 Golden Holiday - won $10, $30, the other two losers

            Again the $5 tickets had the best return. 

            The 100x the Cash and new Gold Rush there is something wrong with the returns.  I wonder how the Florida Lottery can keep sending out so many losing tickets.  It can't be legal but who regulates them?

                  I been sticking with the gold rush and been hitting $100 like crazy prob hit $100 10 times in 5 days also 3 money bad symbols all of them $100 which is a joke absolutely a slap in the face. I hit one gold bar sense it's been out where is the loaded $500 winners????$$%%&%$  one prob with gold rush is it jumps from $100 to $500 in the winning colloms be nice to have $200 $300 and so on not such a big gap between them. But Jax gold rush has been hot as I ever seen in winning consistent. Swear I could not win for the life of me 2 weeks ago now I have win on almost every tic from 15 different locations.

                    Nice hit KFla193.  Any prize over $100 is exponentially harder to win than the $100 and less prizes. 

                    I still believe that $500 wins on the Gold Rush games are like unicorns, I'll believe they exist when I see one for myself.  :)

                      I've been buying these here and there with no big wins.  Maybe I can get some Christmas shopping done with this.

                      100X $500 win

                        Florida scratchers. Still a lot of losers out there.

                        Bought this morning:

                        3 x$25 100x the Cash - all losers

                        3 x $20 New Gold Rush - all losers

                        3 x $10 50x the Cash - all losers

                        4 x $10 $1,000,000 Golden Holiday - won $10 twice, $30 and one loser

                        4 x $5 Happy Holidays- won $20 once, won $5 twice and one loser

                        The holiday tickets seem to be where the winners are. 

                        The 100x the Cash and new Gold Rush continue to suck in a big way.

                          $5 dollar Holiday tickets have been all trash duds for me.

                          $10 Holiday tickets I hit my money back twice and got the star for a whopping 20 bucks (10x2)

                          My luck has been terrible lately. :(

                            Despite not liking any of the Gold Rush games, I decided to cash in my $500 winner (100X the Cash) and buy a roll of the $600,000,000 Gold Rush.

                            I learned two things:  1) Do not chase...you may be chasing for a while and end up with garbage, and 2) I will never buy another roll of any Gold Rush game again.

                            Here were the results:

                            $600,000,000 Gold Rush
                            Ticket NoPayout

                            2$0.00
                            3$0.00
                            4$0.00
                            5$0.00
                            6$25.001

                            21$0.00
                            22$0.00

                            29$0.00

                            Total cost:  $600.  Total return: $245.  Just donated $355 to the Florida Lottery.

                              don't beat yourself up gatorsrok, i assume most of the time we all are going to recycle our money it's just a matter of sooner or later. $1,000 winner in that book you would feel like a genius. i've always wanted to buy a book but never have pulled the trigger but if i did the only way would be the way you did by cashing in a winner and putting the money towards the purchase. so here's to you for going for it, makes life worth living.Cheers
