    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.

    I don't even bother with 2nd chance drawings. You got to be a Patel to win those ROFL

        ...and change, it did.  Not a lot, but...

        went to two places after work.  Both places, bought ten $2.00 gold rush.  Won three tickets from both places.  Got 2 two's and a tenner (matched all ten numbers for a dollar on tic # 90) from J and S.  Same place that lost me 33.00 yesterday.  Tonight I lost 6.00 from them.  Then to Sheila's.  Got 2 two's AND a 5x...for 10.00 (50.00) on ticket # 10.  Much better than this mornings venture.  Bottom line,

        Spent 861 this year.......won 653.00...............down 208.00.  Have I told you how much I love the new gold rush?  More tomorrow.  As Edward R. Murrow would say, "Good night, and good luck."  (did he really say that?...or am I thinking Saturday Night Live?)

          Good to hear you got a decent ticket. Those 1-3 $ tix never get me anything.

          Good Luck to all!

            Glad to hear that the tide is turning--good luck Chdicki!  I have to admit, I'm a big fan of your posts and find myself tuning in every day to see how you're doing.  You're financial accounting during this start to 2015 is either going to convince me to play more, or scare me into barely playing at all.  LOL 

            Best of luck to you and thanks for keeping us posted.  Smiley

              Hi Lloyd and Jack,

              thanks for the kind words and encouragement.  They go right back at you, and to all of our Florida posters.  It's nice to hear about and see big winners.

              I cashed in yesterday's fifty at Sheila's gifts this morning.  I was gonna take the cash, but there wasn't that much in the till at 9 a.m.  So I took four of the $5.00 gold rush...and struck out.  Went to a mexican market about 3 blocks from home and got ten more $2.00 gold rushes.  That was cool.  Got four winners out of ten...

              080 gave me one match for 2.00

              077 gave me a 2x for 2, giving me four dollars...

              076 gave me a 2x for 10...plus a match for 10...plus a match for 20.  Fifty...that's worth a smiley faceHyper...then

              075 gave me a 2x for 5...plus a match for 10.  Twenty.  (ok, here it is...Hyper)  Three winners straight is cool, but I have never had three symbols in a row!

              So, +76 for the day. Spent 901 (ouch) for the year...won 729...so having played 16 days in a row, I am down 172.00, averaging loosing $10.75 a day. 

              All the best to you guys and gals.

                One good thing about second chance is you check all of your tics BC it won't let you enter a winner.

                  Good news...got gas for $2.07 today.  I'm a winner there!

                  Bad news...scratchoff's bit the bullet.

                  $5.00 gold rush.  Bought 4, later bought 3 more from the same place.

                  $2.00 gold rush.  Bought a total of 24 from 2 places.

                  The fives netted me -20.00

                  the twos netted me -25.00

                  Spent 83.00 and won 38.00 for a -45.00 today.

                  Spent 984.00 and won 767.00 for a -217 for the year.  Oh well, four days ago I was at -218!

                  I noticed there are a whopping 25 top prizes for the five dollar game.  The highest number of grand prizes for a five dollar ticket that I've seen was 20 on the 20X the cash game.  Also, someone has won 10,000 on the dollar tickets.  Only 99 left.  I'll have one, please.

                  Good night, everyone.  Hope you do well tomorrow.

                      Good show James ! What games were they ? I'm still not buying - been quite a while now but I read these posts every other day or so and keep hoping one of the players gets a top prize !

                          James, nice to see you back in the winner's circle.  Luck is the name of the game.  I'm happy for you...

                          Lloyd, be afraid...be very afraid (of Highlands County Tickets!)

                          I had my worst day of the year today...and I even went to Church this morning!  Round one got me three $5's and a twenty at Sheila's gifts.  It also got me nuttin!

                          Round two took me to J and S where I got one $20, two $10's, three $5's, four $2's and five $'1s...of the wrong game!  I have played the gold rush tickets since the 13th, but tonight wound up with dollar jackpot tickets!  Pay Attention, People!  And, don't go out and buy tickets AFTER you've had <snip>tails!  Bottom line was, I got a winner!  Yes, A winner.  Won $20 on one of the ten dollar tics.  And...when I got home, I was sort of excited.  The fives...I killed the roll.  My one twenty...I started the roll.  Yet, no joy.

                          spent 103...won 20...net loss of 83.00 today.

                          spent 1087...won 787...net loss of 300. for the year!  Me thinks it's time for a break.  At least I've got a few to enter in the second chance drawing!  Good night all...James, keep it up.

                            Check on avoiding Highlands County Tickets!  Wink

                            Sorry to hear about the dry spell.  Seems that the newer tickets out there are a bit stingy when they first hit.  I've had some luck recently with the oldie but goodie Lucky $200K a Year for Life.  Those bright yellow tickets are hard to find anymore, so when I saw it, I had to buy it.  Did a one and done, matched four numbers with a nice $25 under each one.  First time I've ever hit a hundred on a scratch off.  I was so excited you'd think I'd hit the top prize.

                              Well, I should have taken my own advice and taken a break.  These gold rushes are something else...not in a good way.

                              Mon, the 19th...got 10 dollar tix and 10 two dollar tix...spent 30, won 6...

                              Tues, the 20th...only one place.  three 5.00 tix...spent 15, won 10...

                              Today, 3 places...four 10.00 tix total...spent 40, won 10.

                              I really should take a break for a day or two.  Lloyd, don't know if I'm scaring you, but I'm starting to feel a bit of concern myself.  For the year...spent $1172...won $813...year net is a big fat minus $359.  Wow...we need to have a talk!

                              Good for you on your hundred, Lloyd.  The older games may seem down, but they're not out.  Neither are you!

                              Saw that three people have hit 10K on the dollar tix, three have won 50K on the two dollar tix, and one happy person has bought a winning 500K ticket.  Sure wasn't me.  Good luck, everyone.  Go post some winners!
