No joy today.  Cashed in what winners I had, bought 10 $2.00 Fla. Treasure Hunt.  Got 3 winners @ 4.00 each.  Also got another Super Millions, Ticket #5...struck out there.

Spent 40, won 12, net -28.  I for one, am ready for some new games.  Gold Rush Family?  Could be, could be.  Good luck, all.

    Well today was almost a victory.  Right before work, finished a roll of 10,000 jackpots.  Only 2 tickets left, 298 & 299.  Lost on both.

    During my lunch break, bought 9 holiday cash, # 218-226.  Broke even.

    After work, went to Sheila's to cash in yesterday's plus today's tickets.  Killed the roll of 2 million Jackpot tickets she had, with #057-059.  Had a pair of numbers on 57.  Matched a number and got coins on 58.  Lost on 59.  Broke even again!

    Spent $41 today.  Won $39 today.  Lost 2 today.

    Spent 659 this year.  Won 522 this year.  Down 137.

    While getting my holiday cash, I saw the little placecards in some of the slots.  Coming soon....$1, $2, and $5 gold rush tickets.  Didn't notice a ten dollar ticket.  I could have missed it.  I am def. gonna give them a try.  Goodnight, all...

      After yesterday's losses I am going to take Skeptic's lead and quit playing Florida Lottery cold turkey.  Florida Lottery has certainly changed and for the worse.  Flooding the state with way too many losing tickets and there is no way they can be giving us the advertised odds stated on their site, especially for the $20 and $25 scratchers. 

      4 x $25 100x the Cash - all losers

      2 x $20 Flamingo Fortune - both losers

      2 x $20 New Gold Rush - both losers

      4 x $10 50x the Cash - 3 losers, 1 $10 win

      4 x $5 Money Multipler - 3 losers, 1 $5 win

      4 x $5 20 x the Cash - 2 losers, 1 $5 win, 1 $10 win

      Today's losses - $230

        That's a tough break. I just played one 100x the cash from a store I frequent in winter park and they had posted pictures of a few winning tickets from the game on their door. It was 3 $1000 winning tickets all dated 2 days ago. The lady that worked there said a guy came in brought a roll and won off that roll. So now they have 4 rolls going and I guess I picked the wrong one for my ticket cause it was a loser lol.

          I'm proud of myself.  Only went out for tickets one time today.  Cashed in yesterday's thirty and saw the slot was replaced with "50 X the cash" They already had a book on ticket 40 something, and this book was brand new. Sooooooo...

          000 gave me one number for $20.00

          001 gave me a symbol!  5X (who'se the man) for $2.00 (obviously not me)

          002 was a looooooooooooooooooser.

          Broke even.  Still at -137 for the year.  Goodnight and good luck!

            No joy...no love.  At Circle K, 6 holiday cash, won $1.  At Marathon, 6 holiday cash, won $4.  Off to Sheila's.

            Cashed in my 30.00 in tickets from yesterday.  Knowing I broke even 2 days in a row on two different $10.00 games, I think, "time to change up".  Someone remind me to quit thinking.  Bought six 20 X the cash # 038-043.  Got 2X 5 (10.00) on number 42.Am now sitting at a minus $164 for the year.

            Tomorrow's the day...gonna focus on the new Gold Rush tickets.  Now I just need to focus on where to go.  I am a mile or less from 12 different places.  I have the mindset of giving them a month at least.    Wish me (and you good folks) well.

              New member but have been lurking for a while. I hope everyone does well on the new gold rush tickets. Would you guys suggest a book from 1 or 2 places or x amount of tickets from multiple places?

                There's a 2nd chance drawing for all the new Gold Rush games. I really regret tossing my duds because I planned on not playing much this year. (I have only spent 20$ this year) But I had so many $20 GR losers I could have used! haha

                      There is some debate on which is the better method.  My experience (and the statistics) show that buying a book of tickets will almost always result in a loss of money because the books are designed to return about 50% of what you pay in.  If you buy a book, you are guaranteed about 1/3 to 1/4 of the tickets will be winners, but that also means you are guaranteed that 2/3 to 3/4 of the tickets you buy are losers.  Unless you get a high dollar prize ($500 or greater), you will probably lose money on a book.  I've bought about 8 of them in the last 4 years and I've never left ahead.  Good luck and hopefully you'll hit a big one.

                          Bought about 20-30 myself today. Highest winner = $10 4 times

                          Terrible ticket you think being new and Gold Rush it would have some winners early

                          Just a bad day scratchin' overall. Got 1 $50 out of Monopoly that was about it

                          2014 Highest Winner: $500

                            I entered 66 losing $20 Gold Rush scratchers into the Second Chance site last night.  66 scratchers = 1,320 entries into the drawing.  I hope I win something this time.  I have never won anything in a Second Chance drawing before, but have never had this many losing scratchers to enter either.  I am glad I saved all the losers this year.
