I've been playing the new Gold Rush Tickets a bit lately. The most I've won thus far is $50 on the new $5 Gold Rush ticket and only win back prizes on the new $10 Gold Rush Ticket. I usually do good on the $10 tickets but they have been very stingy the past 2 weeks for me. Going to play a few more this afternnon. I will post results if anything descent pops off.

    Good luck, Starke$.  Give us a good report, ok?

    My report...not so hot.  Started with 5 one dollar gold rushes...Nada.  Just got off work a bit ago and cashed in yesterday's ten dollar winner on one of the same.  Good news...matched two numbers! Bad news...$5.00 each.

    Spent 15...won 10...net -$5.00

    Spent 1187...won 823...net for the year-$364.

    Done for the day.  Glad tomorrow's payday!  Good fortune, everyone.

    Oh, Six people now have claimed a 10K dollar Gold rush.  Got 507 enteries in the drawing so far...

      Unfortunately, not much luck today either. Bought 2 $10 gold rush #'s (34-35) and lost them both along with one $5 gold rush which lost also. (-$25) Decided to buy the next 4 $10 gold rush tickets #'s (36-39) First ticket won $20 and the next ticket won $15. The last 2 tickets lost as usual. So out of $65, I lost $45. But, of course with the left over $20 I had I played 2 $10 Jackpot tickets for the heck of it and lost that as well. Oh well, win some loose some is the game. I'll be back at it this weekend. Good luck everybody & Happy Hunting!!

        I bought a few tickets today. 4 of the new $5 Gold Rush, only won $5.

        1 Flamingo Fortune (#9), won $50

        2 $25 100X Cash, won $150 on a single ticket (#37) it had the $100 symbol and 2 matches for $25 each.

         

        Not a bad day at all, but I am done for the week.

          Good for you, KFla.  Nice to see someone in the plus column.

          I scored a payday today!  (from my job, not the Florida Lottery...got ya!)  Bought one 10.00 gold rush and ten 2.00 gold rush, then went to my friends where he and I both bit.  He lost on 6 of 8 5.00 gold rushes and lost on a GRT.  He broke even on the other 20.00 gold rush.  I scored a $10 and a $5 on my 2.00 tickets.  Lost on the ten.  He did show me a 100.00 flamingo fortune that he's holding on to.

          On my way home, bought 8 more 5.00 gold rushes from three different places.  Another forty bucks in, got five bucks out. 

          I have $30.00 in winners which I'll cash in after work this evening. 

          So for the day, spent 70, won 20, down 50 for the day.

          So for the year, spent 1257, won 843, down 414 for the year.  These mom and pop stores are not paying off at all.  Maybe I ought to spend my 30 at a Publix or Winn Dixie? 

          Good luck to everyone today!

            So, I worked my shift, got some checker burgers, and went to see Sheila to cash in my paltry winnings.  Traded in my 30.00 for 3 ten dollar gold rush, 014-016.  Bottom line...just add 30.00 to the above tally numbers.  I'm going to bed!

              Well darn'it all!  Ok my friend, no more Gold Rush.  Only play the old games, that's what i'm thinking.

              Love you're posts as always.  Somehow you remain positive despite the evil new cards, and i love that!  Only takes one hit my friend, that's what I keep telling myself anyway.  Still rooting for you!  Keep that chin up!

                Despite my dislike of the Gold Rush games, I decided to buy a book of the $500,000 Gold Rush ($5 x 60 tickets = $300).

                Here were the results:

                Won $110, Loss of $190.

                I left with two observations:

                1.  The winning tickets appear to be spread out evenly over the book (e.g. no big clusters of winners or losers like other games).  To me, this means that if you do buy a winning ticket, you should not purchase the next few tickets in that roll because the odds are against you that you'll have back to back winners.
                2. I still do not like the Gold Rush games.  :/

                In any event, I hope you all have better luck.

                  Gatorsrok, tough break.  I have bought 3 books in my career, one book of $5.00 where I lost 135, and two $2.00 books.  Came out ahead on the second, thanks to a 200.00 winner.  I haven't bought a book since spring of '14. 

                  I only made one stop today.  Groceries at Winn Dixie, and since having bad luck at c-stores and mom and pop shops, I invested 20 in the machine.  Played $2.00 gold rushes, and the good news...won on the first three tickets (134-136).  The bad news...got a 2, a 2, and a 4.  But ya know what?  I'm ok with that.  The day itself was better than yesterday, and if my previous post seemed 'pissy', well, I'm sorry.  This is a game.  And if I can't have fun with it, I don't need to play.

                  So for the nightly recap...spent 20...won 8...lost 14

                  for the year...spent 1307 (that's scary!)  won 851 (that's cool!)   sitting at a minus 456.00 for the year (that's...gonna change!)

                  Lloyd...THANK YOU for your support...interest...concern.  I appreciate that.  Still, gonna stick with the gold rushes a while longer.  When the jackpot tickets came out, I played them for almost 2 months before I got fed up and played other games. 

                  I KNOW my ship's gonna come in...I just hope I'm not at the airport when it does!

                  Tomorrow's another day.  Good fortune, everyone.

                    That's brutal. I noticed there's one winner every 4 tickets. Seems like they expect people to spend $20 and buy 4 every time.

                      First of all...paid 1.99 per gallon for gas!

                      Second of all...because I won on my first 3 out of 10 tickets yesterday, me thinks, let's just buy 3 tickets from different places today.  So, I did.  2.00 gold rushes from

                      L & M groceries...won two.  No greeting, no 'good luck', no 'thank you'.  We won't go there again, even tho it's close. (Indian owned)

                      little froggies...struck out.  At least I was thanked.  (Mexican owned)

                      Circle k where I got gas...got a $4.00 ticket.  Not a lot of love there tho.  (national chain, American run, at least here.)

                      Sheila's...cashed in yesterday's 8.00, got 4 more tix.  Struck out.  There, I feel welcome.  I have given her every winner since the first of the year, and will continue to do such.  (a local gal with a new business)

                      Congratulations to the 7 10K winners, the 6 50K winners, and the 2 500K winners.  No 2 million winner yet.  Hope it's one of us!!!

                      Spent 26...won 6...lost 20 for the day.

                      spent 1333...won 857...down 476 for the year.  Ain't it great????????  Happy hunting...see ya all tomorrow!

                      Oh...I could google this...but does anyone know...how the the word 'thousand' got shortened to 'k'?  I won 5 thousands bucks...I won 5K.  Why????????????

                        First of all...paid 1.99 per gallon for gas!

                        Second of all...because I won on my first 3 out of 10 tickets yesterday, me thinks, let's just buy 3 tickets from different places today.  So, I did.  2.00 gold rushes from

                        L & M groceries...won two.  No greeting, no 'good luck', no 'thank you'.  We won't go there again, even tho it's close. (Indian owned)

                        little froggies...struck out.  At least I was thanked.  (Mexican owned)

                        Circle k where I got gas...got a $4.00 ticket.  Not a lot of love there tho.  (national chain, American run, at least here.)

                        Sheila's...cashed in yesterday's 8.00, got 4 more tix.  Struck out.  There, I feel welcome.  I have given her every winner since the first of the year, and will continue to do such.  (a local gal with a new business)

                        Congratulations to the 7 10K winners, the 6 50K winners, and the 2 500K winners.  No 2 million winner yet.  Hope it's one of us!!!

                        Spent 26...won 6...lost 20 for the day.

                        spent 1333...won 857...down 476 for the year.  Ain't it great????????  Happy hunting...see ya all tomorrow!

                        Oh...I could google this...but does anyone know...how the the word 'thousand' got shortened to 'k'?  I won 5 thousands bucks...I won 5K.  Why????????????

                        Is there a reason for listing the nationality of the store owners?

                          That's brutal. I noticed there's one winner every 4 tickets. Seems like they expect people to spend $20 and buy 4 every time.

                          It usually every 5-6 tickets that wins from my experience. The only problem following that strategy is that you don't know if someone won right before you or not.

                              I've been playing less and buying only $5 or lower tickets almost exclusively.  I hope to stick to that for my New Year's resolution.  A couple days ago on 5 Card Cash I hit $25 for a straight and one of the tickets was interesting for the drawing portion.  I had the Queen of diamonds, Jack of diamonds, Five of spades, King of hearts, and Eight of hearts.   The cards drawn for the evening were the Queen of spades, the Jack of hearts, the Five of spades, the King of diamonds, and the Eight of spades.  So I got all the cards right but all the suits wrong lol (no prize). 

                               

                              I had some luck on the 5 Card Cash drawing for tonight though.  I hit one for $30 and 3 for $3 each out of the 10 tickets I bought so that was kind of nice.
