Florida Lottery can suck it.

This mornings purchases:

3 x $10 50x the Cash - all losers

3 x $20 Flamingo Fortune - all losers

10 x $2 Holiday Tripler - won $2 and $4,. the rest losers

10 x $2 Nutcracker - won $2 twice, the rest losers

5 x $5 Happy Holidays- all losers

4 x $10 $1,000,000 Golden Holiday - all losers

It just gets worse in Florida.  I wish a news station would investigate them.  There are so many losing tickets flooding the stores that its rare to break even these days.

        Hey LUCKI ....nice one man. I never got 10 X $100 on that game and must have bought 2000 tickets over 4 some years. When I got a 10X it was always 10X$10 or $100. Got many 10X$50 ......... $200MS is about 5 or 6 years old and you're RIGHT ...... it still spits out winners. I did get a $5K on it one time - it was a ticket I scratched and threw out with maybe 20 others. The next day I went to the trash to double check - Heinikens made my eyes blurry the day before while I was scratching - anyway I saw where I didn't scratch one number, when I did there was $5,000 under it !!!

          Thanks Skeptic. Yes, $200MS has been good to me, I have won $500 lots of times on that ticket but this is a first for a $1k win. As for the ticket you tossed and later found it to be a $5k Winner. WOW. Makes me wonder how many winning tickets people toss out everyday. At least you were able to cash in on it. I see people all the time digging through the trash hoping to find winners in some parts of South Florida. I have even heard stories of people actually finding winners in the trash. I for one am very happy with the scanning system all new tickets have now, I always scan before I toss. I am still in the chase for the big one. Good luck to you !!

          Keep moving Forward.

            Congrats Lucki on the win.  I've hit a $100 several times on the $200MS but that appears to be the ceiling for me.  Maybe I'll give it a shot again soon.

            As far as people trashing losers, if you look at the lotto reports (specifically the Instant Liability Reports), it is pretty apparent that people do not claim (either by neglect or they don't notice the winner) scratchoff tickets with one winning match on the card.  For instance, if your $200MS spectacular ticket had only one number match with a prize, the odds are greater that a person misses the prize than if there are multiple winning numbers/prizes on a ticket or if a symbol (e.g. star, 100X, etc) indicates there is a winner.  The lotto reports show at every level that winning combinations with a single number match for a winner are claimed at a significantly lower rate than winning combinations on a ticket with multiple winning combinations on the card.

            I always double check my tickets before I dispose of them just to be sure.

              Hi all, I have not posted in awhile. Like a lot of others, I experienced some incredibly horrible luck. Hadn't played much since October when I went though 6 or 7 straight losing 600,000GRT and 100X tickets. 

              However, it's been a year since the week I went out and tried my first $25 scratch off. I remember that night well, driving to all the different locations and finding 4 $100 winners at various locations. Maybe it has something to do with the time of year, but I think this week they may have been just a few more decent winners out there.

              Yesterday, I traveled to Orlando. Well, actually, I was going to travel Keanesville to try an experiment with what I thought was the most rural lottery retailer in the State, but I didn't have my cash with me and the gas station didn't have an ATM so I passed on that and just went back to the Orlando area. I love WaWa food so after filling my car up and getting my favorite Buffalo Chicken Sandwhich with Frozen Lemonade, I bought 2 100X Tickets, 1 $10 JP and 1$10 Holiday-themed ticket. I would have tried GoldRush but since they already gave 2 $3M prizes out in the past few weeks, probably a no-go.

              Anyway, the WaWa was the one on Semoran just north of SR 50. Both the $10 tix were losers. The 2 100X tickets though were both winners, ironically with both 2- 2X symbols. One had 2-2Xs for $20 each for $40 Total and the other ticket had 2-2Xs for $25 for a Hundo winner. Not bad (definitely better than losing). On the way home, I stopped off at a Publix in Eutis on 441 just before the Eutis Bypass road to cash them in. Got one more 100X ticket. This one had 6 numbers match but they were all for $5 so a $30 winner. 3/3 on those tickets aren't too bad at all. Seems like Central Florida always gets better luck.

              I think some places in FL just suck at scratch-offs. Gainesville seems to be a cespool for losers. Ocala does much better but can also slump. There are some places I don't think I've ever managed to win anything. The Save-A-Lot in Archer and the Sweet Bay/Winn Dixie on 34th are the worst of the worst and I will never buy in those locations again.

                I have bought many of those here in mandarin at the welcome food stores and never won squat, but then again most of the tickets in this part of town suck.

                good win

                biggest hit 10k, Jubilee, 5K Miami Heat, 2K Emerald 8s, 1k jubilee, 1k GRT, 1k heat wave, multiple 500's

                good luck in the chase 2013 wins, maybe 4 500's

                  I baught the old $5 crossword on my way back to Jacksonville in Pensacola before I left to keep me busy on the long drive and hit $500. Just shows how much a rip the $20 tics are and the new GR our.

                    I won 5 times today on the older $5 dollar 500,000 dollar jackpot than any of the new holiday tickets.  It was a mix of 5, 10, and 20 dollar prizes but still better than all the duds I been getting from the stupid Christmas tickets.

                      Remember what I said about this being a better week? Faghedaboutit.

                      Tried the spread location strategy and it failed miserably. Didn't scratch off my tickets until I had purchased them all.

                      2 100X Tickets from Valero (75th & Archer) - Both Losers (#35, #9)

                      2 100X Tickets from Shell (75th & Archer) - Both Losers (#16, #29)

                      1 100X Ticket from Tower Square Publix from the Counter - $25 Even (#26)

                      1 Old Gold Rush Ticket (#10) - Loser

                      1 Old Gold Rush Ticket (#11) Loser

                       

                      Yeah, I'm still waiting for the day when more winners appear than more losers with this strategy. Total BS. That's it for the year.

                        I started playing the new GR one at a time, and since yesterday I'd won 50$, $30, and 20$. So I figured I would stick with it, and I found the unicorn!

                         

                         

                        Cashed it in and bought 2 100X Cash and got another nice win!

                         

                         

                        awkward that both had a 5x symbol, but no complaints... Merry Christmas to me!

                          Congratulations.  I'm wishing something like that happens to me too. I just won 15$ on a $10 2million jackpot ticket. Ya|yummy (he said sarcastically)
