    First of all, to all our female players out there, I hope you all had a blessed and pampered Mother's Day yesterday, including winning tickets.

    Had up and down days last week.  Today I ran errands and stopped at a Citgo on my way home.  The 100X slot was empty, but the manager did open a new book for me, and I bought four (gulp).  I was a bit nervous scratching them off at home, and was relieved to find a 5X on ticket 000, followed by a single match on 001!  I'm thinking, this is way cool, then loose on 002.  003 gave me two 2X's.  Now I'm getting a bit excited.  For what???  my 5X was for 5 bucks, my single match was for 25.00 and both of the 2X were for 10.00 each. 

    Spent 100...won 90. Sure, it could have been worse, but boy, it could have been a whole lot better!

    Back to $2 and $5 tickets tomorrow.  Good fortune, everyone.

      On the way home tonight, cash in yesterday's $30 winner. Took the back way looking to see if any of the c-stores had 100X

      First stop was some convenience store that doesn't sell gas on the corner of Marion County Rd 225 & CR 316. I got mad because it's raining and I missed seeing a pothole and just got a new car last month so hopefully the tire is ok. Anyway's he didn't have any tickets but that's where I cashed it.

      Next place I tried was "Phillips Food Store" a ma/pop gas station on SR 326 & CR 225A. She actually did have tickets. Was on #036. I contemplated buying the rest buy only bought 1 and scratched it there. It was a $40 winner. Didn't play anymore but anyone near, she's got 3 left.

      So 4 out of 5 tickets have been winners, but I'm only "up" for this series by $5. I'll take it, better than losing.

      Anybody else find any tickets?

      I'm starting to think the big prizes wern't released. The amount of buying going on, at least 3 of those $1M should have been found by now.

        I , BIG JIM and Steve the midget just came to the same conclusion - the Florida Lottery is full of  BULLSH!T !!

        The NEW GR ticket says " LOADED WITH $100's and $500 PRIZES " ............ MORE BULLSH!T !! I got only one $500 by playing the  SAME number of tickets I did with GRT - with GRT I won 17 $500's .........yes, with the same number of tickets ..... the odds are about the same. You got it - more BULLSH!T ........

         

        The way they screwed around with Billion Dollar Block Blockbuster a couple years ago with almost $500M of prizes left - then just all of a sudden cancelled it - and now playing around with 100 X is just their way of telling customers - screw you.

        Don't forget - that one guy in the small town of Port Charlotte won twice on BDB - first was $1M and the second was $10M - about 5 months apart - a guy in the panhandle did almost the same -  it wasn't too long after that the game was cancelled.

          The old 100X the Cash rolls have serial number below 930,000.  On the back of each ticket, you'll see a serial number.  For example, 1208-1041335-0-027(013).

          The 1208 is the game number.  The next set of numbers is the book number.  The books are released sequentially (e.g, 000001 to 930,000).  The 0 is a control number and the 027 is the ticket number.  Don't worry about the control and ticket number.

          For the 100X the Cash, the serial number for the original release (before the reorder) was from book serial number 1 to about 930,000.  If you buy a ticket and see the book number is greater than 930,000, then it is likely from the new reorder batch (with one $5M prize remaining). 

          Here is something to be aware of, I ordered an instant liability report for the 100X the Cash once the last $5M prize was claimed from the initial release of the game.  This was just after the last $5M prize was claimed but before they reordered the game and added two more $5M prizes and 18 more $1M prizes.  At the time they reordered the game, there were still 8 unclaimed $1M prizes. 

          Therefore, the lotto website currently shows 7 $1M prizes and 1 $5M prize remaining.  The $5M prize is in the new batch of tickets (930,000 - 1,080,000).  However, the other 7 $1M prizes could be partially in the new batch and some could be in the old batch.  Without sending in a request to obtain the book serial number for each claimed winner, there is no way of knowing how many of the $1M prizes are actually left from the reorder of the tickets. I've sent in a request to obtain every winning ticket number one time before but you have to pay for that information because it takes them time to copy each winning ticket claimed.

          There is one thing that is VERY telling.  The last person to claim a $1M prize in the game was March 23, 2015.  Prior to that, people were claiming $1M winners about one or two per week going back almost to when the game was released.  It has gone dead cold on prize winners since March 23rd which makes me think that the one $5M prize remains and maybe one or two of the $1M prizes remain.  I highly doubt the other 5 $1M prizes will ever be claimed.

          My co-workers convinced me to go 1/3 with them on one last book of the 100X the Cash from the Jax District Office tomorrow.  This should be my last attempt at this game.

            Gatorsrok, I don't know what the serial number was of the ticket I played today (since I scratched it right away), but the serial number I traded in today was 1,008, something. I didn't know about the 930,000 number.

            I just find it hard to believe that no big prizes have been found like you said for 2 weeks. It's clear FL's got a lot of "bulk" buyers that are buying the remaining stock like crazy, even faster than normal. A high traffic area like Publix is almost out of them. If the prizes do exist I'm thinking it has to come from a medium/low customer traffic area, low enough to have tickets, but not too low where they wouldn't have needed to reorder.

            Convenience Stores without gas, greeting card shops/airport terminals, Keanesville Citgo, smaller ethnic markets, and places in the bad parts of a town I'd be afraid of getting shot at if I tried to walk into the store to buy lotto is the most likely location of the winner.

            Too bad we don't live in a smaller state like Delaware where you could systematically eliminate locations once their ticket supply was exhausted. Doesn't FL Lotto have like 3,000 locations?

            I may try the Gainesville Office tomorrow, but I think they'll have a surplus of old tickets.

                Well, this morning's run sucked big pigs.  Went back to Citgo with yesterday's $90.00 worth of winners and learned that 3 more of the 100X had been sold (roll was on 007).  I SHOULD HAVE bought a couple more.  Instead, I became the killer of rolls...

                052-059 of Big Money got me 15.00

                058-059 of (un)Lucky Loot got me nuttin.

                028-029 of Gold Rush (20's) got me a 2X for 10.00

                $90.00 in...$35.00 back.  Sheeeeeeese!

                Sure hope you folks can do better than that.

                  Please dont think i was trying to be a smarty, not the case at all, sounds like you are in a part of Miami like the part of Jax im in, the big tickets always randomly seem to end up on the other side of town. I buy mom and pops most of the time, the carry old games too, but they have never paid off for me.  I did good the first year i started playing, since then I have put 4 or 5 through college.  You really just never know, I had gut feelings  that have cost me astronomical amounts of money, and yielded nothing.  its completely timing.  if the tickets arent there you cant buy them.  good luck to you

                    Hi there:

                    If you were replying to me with what I quoted above, no worries - not judging you at all.  I was expecting (and at first, reading the "claims") about all the winners every was getting on the Scratch and Lose ticks.  I'm starting to get the feeling, though, that this board isn't necessarily going to be just those "claiming" all these wins.  It seems there are some realistic folks out here who this "tax" no differently than I do.  I also have a very strong feeling, some of you out there are spending MUCH more than you'll ever admit.  I ready earlier - the "chase".

                    Just don't lose your houses on this crap!  I'm banking now on the 20x $5 tickets purchase, or the 10x $10 tickets for a little while.  Going to always take my winnings and supplement it weekly to equal the $100 weekend "donation".  I know my limits; I do a lot of cruising and spend a TON of time in the casinos on-board, and I'd rather win a sure thing (Blackjack is my forte!), then this stuff.  But, what's $100/week, right?  Maybe I'll land a $100 winner on one of the tickets, and the that week will be catch-up funds.

                    Good luck to you all!  Keep on reporting...you are more admired when you honestly report not only the winners, but the losses, as well.  I do want one of us to Win It Big, though!  So, let's Do This!

                      You sure have that right about the "real" numbers when it comes to winning and losing. I haven't played a whole lot this year since we had other expenses to take care of, but last year, grr. Gold Rush Tripler and the new Gold Rush I've never had any success with. I've still yet to win more than $150 on a scratch off and I know how much I've spent. I try to keep it down and not chase because my opinion is if I'm going to lose money, might as well do it in a game I like, such as Roulette. Oddly, the biggest wins I've had have been in Cash 3 yet I haven't played in awhile when that's clearly been the best payoff for me...not even close on the other games.

                      I'm convinced there is no such thing as "coming out ahead" on scratch-offs. I remember posting in here at the beginning a year or two back when I scratched my very first $25 ticket, which happened to be a $100 winner. That night I drove around various gas stations and found 3 more $100 winners, 4 in 1 night. I thought, wow is this the norm. Yet I "netted" far less than that and soon after there were a string of losses. I'l' never forget this one roll of 100x I went chasing at the Shell near my apt in Gainesville. I went through 7-8 in a row, each one a loser. That was just straight up wrong.

                      Anyway, I didn't get home until late tonight. I stopped at quite a few gas stations along 441/ SR 25A between Gainesville and Ocala and could not find anyone with 100X tickets. I ended up going back to the Cost-Cutters Grocery store on Magnolia and was going to buy 1 had he had some remaining, which he did, but he was still on #27 so he hadn't sold any since I bought the $30 winner on Sunday and I wasn't about to buy the next ticket out of superstition. 

                      Other than Lotto District Offices, has anyone been successful finding any stashes?

                      Only 13,000? lol, well I wasn't too far off.

                        i will throw this out there, most serious players who say they are even or ahead on scratchoffs isnt being truthful. i have been writing down what i spend on scratchoffs this month, so far its 880, any ticket under 400 i reinvest.  it would tale a 100k ticket to make me even, .  there are 100x tix in my area i spent 100 more today and nada.

                        speaking of number of losers in a row, i have gone through 14 $20 flamingo tickets in a row all losers, now number 15 was a $500 tix but at that point you havent won anything.  but with $20 tix you can easily go through 8 or 9 duds in a row.  i tell ya i think they book good tickets together and distribute to economically depressed areas

                          Prior to coming back to Florida, I hit on a Scratch-n-Lose for a 2x $500, and that's the best I've ever done.  I have been (trying) to save EVERY single losing ticket since coming back to Florida in some magical dream that I might need it for an accountant.  LOL...

                          My rule-of-thumb:  I can cash-out any day of the week; but I can't buy any other day other than once on the weekend - Saturday or Sunday - pick one and cross your fingers!  Until this past weekend, I hadn't spend $100 in any one single purchase (sometimes, I'll buy about $50 or $75 if I'm heading out on a flight - something to do over the hours).  I'll stay with this once-a-week/at one time $100 purchase.  I think this week I'll try the 10x $10 tickets.  I had greater hopes for the 20x $5 string I bought last week, but we'll switch it around every now and then...

                             wadda day.  Visited my friend after going to Winn Dixie.  My $90.00 from the other day dwindeled down to 6.00which I got in dollar gold rushes.  I also bought 6 two dollar gold rushes (lost on all of em).  My 6 dollar tix got me $8.00...first win in days!  Once I left him, I bought 3 ten dollar tix, which I turned into six of the shimmering 7's.  Yes, more cash was involved.  Bottom line, I just about broke even for yesterday and today, thanks to this guy...

                            that is ticket 006.  Bought 005-011...won 5.00 on tic 005.  Good fortune to you all...

                            also, I saw last night four placecards for games which should be on sale the 19th

                              Found a few more gas stations with 100X

                               

                              Turns out 2 stations in Micanopy still had them. Got #19 from Sunoco and #26 from Chevron. Then found the Marathon at SR 200 and 75 near the Cracker Barrell had a few left and got #35.

                              All had roll#'s in the last series.

                              All were losers :-(  So I'm tapping out and quitting again. Can't complain getting 4/5 earlier. Still sucks to go 0 for 3 especially when the tickets come from different places.
