Bought 1 more 100x Cash and 1 Flamingo Fortune on my way home from dinner tonight and WOW!! This will be my first trip to the lottery office!!! What are the taxes on a 1k win?

 

Congrats on the win.  Looks like you are on a roll.  The lotto district office is going to issue you a W-2G for your $1K win.  If you itemize your deductions, you will be able to deduct gambling/lotto ticket losses up to the amount of your reported gambling/lotto winnings.  Otherwise, you will have to pay taxes on the winnings when you file your tax return.

        I believe that, because the new GR have been winning like crazy. I'm sure it will be back to crap by next week so I think I will stop playing for a few weeks and wait for the next wave.

          I don't buy anymore but keep in touch with a few people who buy a lot. The reports I'm getting as one guy told me "I went through 32 new GR tickets and won $160 total "......... the same with 100X -  a couple guys went through some 60 tickets between them and the big win was a crappy  $100 ........

          So as far as GR and 100X ...... from the 4 or 5 players I know ........no one  is winning right now and they are getting p1ssed off ....... about 5 or so months ago I bought six consecutive 100X tix and got two $1K's and three $500's !!!!!! I posted the winning tickets here.....now  THAT WAS A HOT ROLL and I doubt if anything close to that will ever happen again with 100X .....

          Go girl after the GR's in your area if they are hot or wait for the next wave.

              I know of one guy who hit for $5k on these tickets and he buys a lot. It was the 1st or 2nd week the game was out. Since, he has only won $500 once and lots of $100 and lower end prizes. I have won $100 on this tickets a few times , but only hit for $500 once with ticket 029 a few weeks ago. (I did not bother taking a Picture and just cashed it in on the spot). Usually my area is Horrible during the Holiday Season. So I am only buying one here and there to see if something sticks. Good Luck to all !!! Thumbs Up

              Keep moving Forward.

                Another failed experiment tonight.

                Switched games up and played the Old Gold Rush. After playing so many of those tickets, I have still yet to come across a golden nugget. I concentrated on this game instead of the 100X because the 100X has just sucked for me recently.

                Investment: $205

                Locations in Gainesville:

                Chevron (Williston Rd & I-75) 3 GRT (1 from each bin) 

                Kangaroo (Williston Rd & I-75) 1 GRT 

                Citgo (Main Street South of NE 10th) 1 GRT

                Sunoco (13th Street North of 39th Ave) 2 GRT (1 from Counter, 1 from Vending)

                BP Kangaroo (13th St & 53rd Ave) 1 GRT

                Publix Liquors (43rd St & 53rd Ave) 1 100X Ticket

                Publix CS Counter (43rd St & 53rd Ave 1 GRT

                 

                That's 10 Tickets. Scratched them off after I made the last purchase.

                1 of the Chevron Tickets won for $40

                The Citgo Ticket won for $50

                The Sunoco Ticket behind the counter won for $20

                The Publix CS Counter won for $20

                So only got $130 back, a loss of $75. Decided to get 1 GRT out of the vending machine at the Publix to see if I could get a Hundo and break even. But no luck.

                 

                Tried different locations on the North side I had never been to. Can't complain too much since 4 of the 11 were at least winners, but man, just once would I like to come across a Gold Nugget or Bar or $500 winner. My mom has won so many $20/$30 prizes with the $2 tickets, I don't understand how I haven't come across at least 1 yet.

                  Tonight decided to try something different and bought rolls of $5 tickets. Each $5 roll cost $300.  Results:

                  cash frenzy $150 back

                  christmas holiday $200

                  multiplier $300

                  lucky loot $200

                   

                  Not sure if I want to buy another roll tomorrow or not. I Really thought I would have had one roll win over $300. I was disappointed at the end results.

                    Tickets are terrible here. I have just about given up. A lot of the regulars around here have either quit or play very little anymore. The UPS guy (who used to buy $1K+ a week) now plays maybe $100 a week. Saw him today and he told me he just walks right past the machine when he makes his rounds at Publix. His wife is pregnant and I imagine he is quite a bit in debt too. Also never see this woman buying anymore. She was a maid at some high end hotel and you could count on seeing her everytime you walk into Publix. Gone also is the guy that used to just scratch the codes and toss the ticket. I guess with the advent of the scanner he lost interest? Only one who is still playing is the annoying-azz clerk here. She will hawk in and swoop up tickets any chance she gets. With her sneaky play style its no wonder she wont stop playing, as she seems to be the only person who is actually making money from the lottery.....

                      Bought two more new GR from the machine at Publix, ticket numbers 6 & 7. #6 was a $20 win and #7

                       

                      All of my wins this week were from Publix, Citgo, and a small store all within walking distance of each other!

                        A few months ago I said I won't ever buy anymore tickets and just hang on the sidelines checking to see who's winning what.

                        BUT after seeing the great wins from Kfla ......the fever to get back in the game hit me strong this afternoon so I'm back - at least for a few days :)

                        SO I hit up my fav spots including Publix, Winn Dixe, the busy Sunoco station by my house and finally Lee's Ice and beverage shop. Bought just a few

                        at each place - just GRT's and the new Gold Rush.

                        I posted the wins on the below frames - it's the only way I know how to do it.

                        Today was the best single day for $500 wins I've had in a longtime. One day last year I picked up 5  winning $500's - two were consecutive wins out of

                        just five tickets!

                        Needless to say I'm happy about todays wins !! So watch out Kfla - I'm right behind you   LOL

                        Hope everyone has a fab Christmas Holiday !!!!
