"hey guys, long time lurker, but decided to join finally :)

 

In my scratch off "career" (lol) I've had 13 $500 wins, (+1 for cash 3) as well as 3 $1,000 winners!  Today was actually my 3rd time winning $1,000!!  Surprisingly, on the new GR! I don't play the new one that often cause it sucked in the beginning, but i play it randomly and hit $500 the other week, and today that!  Ill leave a pic of that, and some other wins in another post :)"

    Wow, I don't know how you guys do it. I can't even get decent $100's anymore and other than this website I've never seen anything more than $150

    Played 3 tickets Sunday night. 1 GRT and 2 100X 1 from each bin at the Valero. The GRT and one of the 100X were just $20 and $25 winners and the other was a loser. 

    My mom meanwhile plays the $2 tickets and has the best luck finding $20 winners buying just 2 or 3. With the amount of GRT's I've scratched off, I'm surprised I've never come across a gold nugget. Overall if I had to estimate for this year, I probably spent nearly $2500 and won maybe $1000 for a -1500 loss. What a croc.

    And I've looked at numbers on the tickets, the codes, it all seems random. The only thing I will say is tickets ending in x5 have been decent for me, but not always.

    Just once I'd like to find just 1 $500 winner or above. Hell on 100X, I'd take a $200 winner.

    Well it took me 7 years in PA to get anything over $250 - got 2 $1,000s this year. But I am still looking for my first regular $500 when others can find them like candy. I guess area and stores have a lot to do with it. Good luck

      Well today sucked again.

       

      Birthday coming up and payday was yesterday. So tried 100X at Archer and SW 122 Chevron.

      Started out Buying 1 at a time

      27 was a Loser

      28 was a Loser

      29 was a Loser

      30 was a $30 winner, used it to buy 31 which was a loser.

      At that point I said screw it, and bought the remaining $200 on the roll

      31-34 Losers

      35 got my hopes up because for the first time I came across a 100X ticket that had repeating numbers in the play area (35 and 33 were listed 6 times). Thought I might have a good one, but in the end it was only $100 winner, which wasn't going to cut it today.

      36-38 Losers

      39 $50 Winner

      So Investment: $325 - Winnings: $150 - Loss: $175

      Even when you win, you lose. Unless you were in the right place at the right time to buy number 35 the rolls was set up where any purchases other than 35 was going to result in a loser.

      Sickening, guess it could be worse. No symbols, nothing above $100. Doesn't seem right.

        I cant remember the last time I found a symbol or repeating # on 100X. I dont think they exist around here

          Good evening, everyone,

          I've gone through this topic page by page, and have been real impressed by some of the winning tickets I've seen here.  Big congratulations to all you winners.

          I have been scratching for about 5 years now.  I was giving a buddy a ride to and from work and he got me to stop so he could get a four-pack (he loves his Bud) and lottery tickets.  I'd watch him spend 60 and win 15, or spend 25 and win 20, ect.  After many months, I started buying...$1 and $2 tickets.  One day I saw him win $500. on the millionaire club ticket, and not long after, I was buying $2's and $5's, and...it's progressed.  He has hit 5 grand once, and I took him to Tampa.  Fun trip!  I was as excited and happy as he was!

          I hit myself once.  (I hit once myself!) I bought the last 2 $5. monopoly tickets the store had going on 2 years ago.  The last square...on the last ticket...I got a car (5X amount) for 200.00.  This time we went to West Palm, so we could to to the casino on the way home.  Needless to say, I was stopping at almost every C-store we passed.

          Can't say I've ever had a winning streak.  Mine come here and there.  In early November, I hit 2 100.00 and a 150.00

          My biggest pet peeve...going to a store...going to spend money...and the clerk is talking on the phone. 

          My biggest joy (besides my wife of 26 years)...having a clerk thank me...and wish me good luck.

          Today, I spent 40.  Lost on Flamingo Fortune (#21) and on 4 20X the cash, (022-025) got 20. on #24.

          A pleasure to meet you all.  Be safe, and happy scratching.  Let's hope for good things in 2015!

          Clark

                    I went to visit friends in Gainesville for New Years and stopped at the Gainesville Lotto District Office to buy 2 $20 LFL tickets.  I usually would not go to the district office to buy tickets but it is hard to find places that sell the older tickets.  Needless to say, the first ticket hit a decent prize ($1,000) and the second one was a $20 winner.  A good way to start the new year.

                      As a side note is there any way in Florida to find out all the remaining prizes not just the remaining jackpots?

                        Thanks jackinthebox. 

                        There is a way to find out all of the remaining prizes in a given game.  You have to do a Sunshine Law request for the "Instant Liability Report" for a given game.  That report shows you the total amount of prizes initially offered and the amount paid and remaining. The state has never charged me for asking for them, but I usually only ask for 4-5 games.  If your request is burdensome (e.g. asking for the reports for every scratchoff game), they can request that you pay reasonable research and copying costs. 

                        If you are interested in requesting the report, please email me and I'll send you a form letter that I mail to the lotto headquarters for the request.  They typically respond within 2-3 weeks.

                            James, any day in the + column is a good day.  Good for you...

                            Gatorsroc, that was pretty...and so cool that you got it from a lottery office.  Nice going, both of you.

                            I got 10 10,000 jackpot from my circle k...#226, JACKPOT! (for 2.00 each...sigh)  #228 matched me all 5 numbers! (for a dollar each...sigh)  then got 2.00 on #231.  Spent 10, won 17.

                            Off to Sheila's gifts after work.  Holiday cash was near the end of the roll...#288-299.  Spent 12, won 6.  Also got 7 2.00 monopoly.  Had 4 winners out of 7 tickets!  Only thing, they were for only 2.00 each...(another sigh!)

                            Spent 36.00---won 31.00---lost five bucks today.  I've had worse days!

                            Still 21.00 up for the year...goodnight, all...

                              Well, not a lot of joy here today.  Had $31.00 to cash in so went to Sheila's market.  Reinvested, starting with the same 2.00 monopoly I won 4 times on yesterday.  Tickets 039-048 gave me $2.00.  On a whim, bought 2 money multiplier tickets, #5 and #6.  Goose eggs!  Went back home and decided to try a store I hardly ever go to.  Bought 10 holiday cash #94-103, and, happy day, won 5.00.  So I'm done for the day, right?  Wrong!  As I come from from the grocery store I go to J & S and get 20 Big Money (219-238), which turned out to be small change.  4 winners, 4 dollars.  Excuse me while I wipe my eyes...

                              Spent 60.00......Won 11.........lost 49.00 today

                              Spent 310.00....Won 282.00...lost 28.00 for the year.

                              Hope you guys and girls do much better.
