I have just always sent an email to communications@flalottery.com, and they have always been helpful, I normally ask for remaining prizes over 1k, or the number of certain winners in one area compared to another.

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

    Hey Loneranger58, thanks for the info, is it possible you can share that information at least with the 20 dollar tickets? Do you get the information only for your area or the entire state? Thanks in advance.

    Keep moving Forward.

      Well, today could have been Real Good if I hadn't been greedy.  Sheila had 2 new 20.00 rolls, so when I cashed in my $11.00, I had to try a Gold Rush (#5), with 11 of the cash to go's (#154-164).  Well my cash went!  Struck out.

      Got smokes at my circle k and got 10 more 10,000 jackpot from the same roll I got my hundred on. Tickets #237-246.  Two dollar tickets, plus another jackpot on #243...ten bucks a square!

      Went to Gate, got 20 Holiday Cash.  2 $2.00 winners (both with matching "3's"), a candy cane plus a number for $10.00, and got all '7's' for $4.00 a pop.

      Still happy tho.  Spent $61, won $84.  Only down $5.00 for the year.  Good luck, everyone.

      By the way, I am in Sebring, Florida...south center of the state.

        Well, too much activity for a detailed account.  Hit 7 locations between here and Avon Park.  My only highlight was a $50.00 tic on Super Millions (002)... and got $20.00 on a 500K Jackpot.  Bottom line, today sucked big pigs.

        Day spent...$180.00   Day won....$90.00

        Year spent...$551.00  Year won...$456.00

        Lost 90.00 today and down 95.00 for the year.  Crying.  Hope you all do better than me.   Tomorrow's another day!!!

          My first scratcher purchases of 2015 absolutely raped me.

          2 x $20 Flamingo Fortune - both losers

          2 x $20 New Gold Rush - both losers

          2 x $20 Gold Rush Tripler - both losers

          2 x $10 50x the Cash - both losers

          2 x $5 Money Multipler - both won $5

          2 x $5 20 x the Cash - both won $5

          Today's losses - $140

          I looked for the new $5 Flamingo which was released today but Publix and Winn Dixie in Ocoee didn't have it yet.

            I broke one of my long-standing rules not to chase tickets.  I bought 5 straight losing 100X the Cash tickets before hitting this on the 6th.  I got lucky this time.  Usually I just lose more money.

            $400 win 100X

              Great find. At least you recouped your losses and gained some in winnings. Do you play at various stores or stick to one main store?

                Nice win, Gatorsrok.  Big congrarts.

                Today was a loss, but not as bad as yesterday.  Bought 27 10,000 jackpots from two places.  Won a total of $15.00. 

                For the day, -12.00.  For the year, -107.

                Happy scratching, everyone!

                  There are really only 4 places that I buy tickets.  Three are close to home and one is across the street from my job.  With this past ticket, I bought all of the tickets from the same roll.  If I had just won even $25 on the first ticket, I probably would have stopped.  But I became stubborn with each consecutive loss because I knew there had to be a winning ticket at some point.

                   

                  @chdicki thanks and good luck to you!

                    I don't know where u guys find these big winners! I took a break from buying tics but two weeks ago I baught 10 gold rush over couple days 4 of them winners of $20 not one tic was more then price of ticket. I feel like its a big prob to risk $20 when there is no chance of winning a profit I feel like they overload big winners in a small window of time.

                      I agree with you.  All of the new $20 tickets are set up so that the vast majority of the winners on a roll will be $20 winners.  Based solely on the published odds, there will only be one $30, $40, $50 and $100 winner in a roll of 30 (and sometimes not even a guaranteed $100 winner).  Anything above $100 becomes exponentially harder to win.  Given the overall odds of 1 in 3, it is challenging to simply win, let alone win a prize greater than $20.  But the lotto won't stay in business if we were all winnners....it's just about being in the right place at the right time.  I figure I can get unlucky a lot if I get really lucky just once.

                        Orlando still flooded with losing $10, $20 and $25 scratchers.  The $5 seem to be the only ones which I can break even or make a little on.

                        2 x $20 Flamingo Fortune - both losers

                        2 x $20 New Gold Rush - both losers

                        2 x $25 100x the Cash - both losers

                        2 x $10 50x the Cash - both losers

                        2 x $5 Fiesta - won $5 and $20

                        2 x $5 20 x the Cash - won $5 and $10
