Thanks Luckjax, but I should have kept my opinion to myself. I was just venting and having a minor temper tantrum. Sorry if I offended anyone else on here. Much luv and the best of luck to us all Hyper

My intention wasn't to make you feel bad in any way. Just pointing out that the money spent on lotto does help some students here in our state. So if you felt obligated to correct yourself because of me, I apologize.

    Thanks KFLA193, but I was wrong and I needed to correct myself. It's like the old saying goes " think before you speak". So because of that, I thank you!!

      Went and bought 6 double match this morning 3 off each roll- all losers

      but just went back to the posts from around December last year or January this year and saw y'all winning on those 5 dollar big money crosswords so I thought id buy 4. 

      Numbers 19-22

      19 won 10 

      20 won 5 

      21 won 5 

      And 22 got 50.

       

      this is the first time in like weeks I've bought scratchoffs and actually made a profit let alone 4 winning tickets in a row.

          Sounds like my luck a week ago. Sorry for the losses wbright -  So what do I do this morning ? Said I'm all done for good - but the ticket machine was like a magnet at Publix when all I went in for was milk and juice - I had two $20's in my pocket and yeah I bought 2 GR's one from each bin - one was $100 (20x$5) the other $50 ...................... you just don't know where the winners are - I didn't buy anymore.

          Good Luck Everyone !!

            I've been away from scratching since we recently moved from G-ville to Ocala.

            Hadn't even heard about the 100X being pulled.

            I went out tonight along the areas by me on SR 200. Was unable to find anyone that had tickets until I crossed the Citrus County Line and stopped at the Kangaroo across from the Sunoco. They had a banner that they sold a $20,000 in the new $25 2 weeks ago. He also had 3 tickets left of 100X so I got them.

            37 and 38 were $30 winners, 39 a dud. 2 out of 3 aint bad I guess can't complain.

            But it's clear the tickets are drying up so were the remaining 7 $1M and 1 $5M really released or not, because it's getting a lot harder to find them. Going to have to find rural locations and Lotto District Offices maybe.

              went through $380 worth tickets yesterday and today, mostly $25 tickets and some $20 flaminto, won $30 on one of the 25 dollartix ans 25 dollars on the Flamingo, pretty good profit for the fla lottery.  was buying a lot of the 100x, everyone seems to think they are all out there, whay hasnt a winner been bought.  i will not buy another one until a winner is uncovered.  yes the fla lottery says they have all been sent out from the distributor, but who says the fla didnt come behind them and collect them, ive seen this done before with casino action, miami heat, and others.

              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

                    The 100X the cash are getting harder to find.  If you are looking for them, the lotto district offices have a lot of them.  I have been buying them up everywhere near my house.  I got a $400 win and a $500 win in the past two days.  But I used those winnings (as well as my own money) to buy a book from a store that had an unopened book and I got creamed ($370 in winnings at a cost of $1,000).  I was about even after those few big wins but now I'm down again.  As much as I like the chase, I think I am about ready to tap out.  Between chasing the $3 Million Monopoly and missing out on the top prize that recently got claimed and now the 100X the cash, it is becoming too much.  If I find opportunities, I'll buy some tickets here and there but it seems like the big winners are elusive and I am spending more money than I would like on tickets. 

                    Good luck to you all. I am looking forward to seeing someone hit a big one eventually.

                      Good evening, All!

                      So, been playing lotteries, casinos and racetracks for a very long time (let's just say, I'm in my 40's somewhere.... ;) ), and I am able to admit I am nowhere, absolutely NOWHERE near the positive side on winnings.  Lotteries and luck have never gone my way, so my pessimism is at 110%.  And rightly so.

                      About the only "luck" I have is at Blackjack, where I rake it in.  So, that's where my funding comes for these "Scratch and Lose" tickets.  I've spent the last several hours reading back on all your postings, and I'm quite skeptical of most of the claims of winnings - even with pictures posted.  I buy in the same frequency (if not more), in the same patterns, and am lucky if I win 10% of the time.  However, I think a lot of that has to do with where I live (Miami area).  Clearly the lottery wins down here are so few and far-between, why do I bother buying tickets here?

                      So, now that I've got that off my chest, I'm going to stop there, and begin a 180 on my personality and feelings about this "tax" that we choose to donate to.  I'm going to post my playing and results, and where I see anything worth posting, I will.  I'll also show my appreciation for everyone else's feedback by contributing where/whenever I can.

                      Every week I buy 3x $10 tickets.  I try to buy the $10 Monopoly tickets when I can find them, or I buy whatever else I'm interested in.  Today's 3x $10 Gold Rush Game#1261 ticket #'s: 9, 10 and 11 - ALL losers.  (What else is new?!).  But then I thought I'd treat myself (which I rarely do; I work work work, save save save, and have no debt, so I thought I'd splurge - MUCH more than I usually do!).  I bought 20x $5 Big Money tickets, Game# 1272.  Tickets 56 down through 37 at the Publix lottery desk.  Here's how I did:

                      Ticket#53 - 1 match for $10

                      Ticket#47 - "coins" for $5

                      Ticket#46 - "coins" and 1 match for $10

                      Ticket#45 - "5X" x$2 for $10 (figures...I get a 5X and it's by $2!)

                      Ticket#43 - "coins" for $5

                       

                      Net result: -$60 (+ the earlier -$30), so, a loss of $90 today.  What else is new?!

                       

                      There you have it.  What you'll get from me is no BS, no "what ifs", no pretend wins, and if the ticket is worth the posting of a picture, I'll post it with my face, the date, and the ticket, so you can see.  Guess what...that will never happen!  LOL...

                      My plan is to continuously roll the winnings in to a $100/weekly expenditure to see where it goes.

                      I'm open to everyones suggestions: 20x $5 tickets    10x $10 tickets?     5x $20 tickets?      4x $25 tickets    ?

                      There you have it.  I enjoy writing/posting on various blogs, so I intend on being here often.

                      Thanks.

                        Only place around here with it is Publix, and I think they are running out. I lost $75 on it today because they were at the bottom of the roll and I bought the last 3. I wish I lived closer to the district office, I would give it a shot, but it's such a long drive and the odds are against me of course lol.

                          Gatorsrok did they say when they got that roll? From what I read in the thread the "hot" rolls are the ones that were just released in the past 2 weeks did he have that roll just lying around?

                          That's what worries me about the Lotto District Office. I know they have they'll have 100X tickets to the very end but their stock probably has tons and tons of old rolls.

                          Which begs the question, did the lottery really release a $5M or even 1 of the supposed 7 remaining $1M secondary prizes? Or is that all just for show. It's highly suspect that this ticket (which already sells more than the other tickets most of the time) that one of these top prizes wouldn't have already been found if all of the tickets had indeed been released.

                          Someone on here mentioned about the serial numbers and that the remaining tickets coincide with the big winner being released based on serial number. How do they know this?

                           

                          Other than that, it looks like none of the big winners will come from a high-volume location (like Publix) who exchausted their supply of the tickets. If it's out there it's going to probably come from a rural location with medium volume (not high, but not low enough to where the tickets they have are the same ones before the final dumping into the market).

                            So, opinions...

                             

                            The Lottery Corporation's offices where the supply of these tickets is, and dispersed around the State.  In the interest of apparent true "luck", the rolls of new tickets are simply sealed/wrapped, stacked, and indiscriminately sent to stores requesting supplies where it is completely unknown who's getting what...OR...the Lottery Corporation knows exactly which packs have the large winning prizes and targets/picks where these will go to?

                            Your thoughts?

                              florida uses a private vendor to print warehouse and distribute tickets. they will swear the do not know where the winning tickets go, i think that is an out right lie, jacksonsville gets its fair share of winners but the areas are always the same.

                              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
