Turns out I missed 2-$5 winners(guess this is what I get for scracting at 2am). That put me to $215. However my total was $235, so that means I missed 2nd matches on some tickets. Man I am bad with that. I have perfect eyes, so I must rush through them.lol $235 is pretty decent return on a pack. Wish I knew where the extra $20 was so I could properly make an Excel file, but I didn't self scan those, just handed them over.

If you get another roll will yiu go to the same place? Seems like the next one may be the $150 roll.
Or the $700 one. Its so hard to judge. In going for the aces and 8s next week.

    Yes and I did get a 2nd roll. It was the only other roll they had unopened. I also got the last 3 of one roll(057-059), 1 off another(012) and then 4 off the 3rd(032-035). Also picked up 4 at Sheetz(012-015) on the way home.  Their ATM was down, and she told me to just pay the $15(had $50 on me) when I come back. I hate to owe people money, so I ran down the road to get money to even up with her. No idea when I will play them though, but I figure this will be me going out with a bang and being done for awhile. Guess I will have a scracting "Frenzy" today :)

    I have a feeling it will be the $150 roll. After starting the 1st half with $45, I was afraid the pack would pay $100-$120. I would have flipped out. I can handle $150, but anything less seems like a sham.. Depends what I win, but I will be going Monday afternoon to the beer place to get some of the new ones and then call it quits for awhile.  I just know one of those 2 remaining open packs at the my normal stop will have the good winner.

      Cool I hope one is a top prize screw the $500! Good luck I'm keeping an eye on this thread
      I am interested to see what you find in your pack! Good luck!

        Well I am 20 tickets into the roll and it paid back $15.. I never seem to get rolls that start hot. Always seems the back half of my rolls double or triple the first half.

            Well I finished off the pack and I am disgusted. I don't care the last one hit $235... This one hit $125. I have NEVER had a $5 pack pay less than $150.Well at least I get to quit the lottery on a sour note.

              Please make sure to check them at the scanner  omiller, maybe you missed a
              good one. That is pretty crummy if not PA needs to have their azzes put through
              an investgation on all their dayum games.
              I hope you missed a one number match for $100k!! That would be awesome to see
              on the scanner...the scanner didn't tell me: See Clerk...it said: Congratulations $25,000!

              246 ~~ 485 ~~ 369 ~~ 890 ~~ 705 ~~ 357 ~~ 129 ~~ 165 ~  007 ~ 225 ~ 818 ~ 440 ~  7775 5557

                I will certainly scan. Will wait til Monday though, since I will get my typical 1 each of the new ones.  You had a $25K that said see clerk? I scanned my $1K and it told me $1,000. Would be cool to "See Clerk"

                 

                I had 1-$50 winner and I think $1-$15 and 1-$10. That means only 3 tickets in the entire pack was a profit. Pitiful.

                  I'm telling you it just seems sadly rigged anymore. Besides one $50 on Hot Numbers I have lost every time on all the $5 tickets lately.  On Frenzy not even one winner.  May not buy any new ones this month.

                    And I had to go out of the area (Pottstown Giant) to get the $50. Otherwise haven't won anything in this area for about a weak. I see many problems:

                    - Certain numbers do not win (always #051-054 on Frenzy for example)

                    - Forced unevenness of the rolls (some randomization is natural but not the way we are seeing it)

                    - Almost all face value winners now

                    - Same bad rolls going to the same areas/stores

                    - Odds listed seem like throwing darts and get worse even in the listings 

                    And it never changes in PA. I have to make myself stop though. I blame myself partly for still playing.

                      I agree with all the comments you made.

                      Used to be fun but not anymore. That said, I will probably keep buying.

                      Gave in to tempation and bought 2 $500 Frenzy from 2 different stores yesterday. Won 0 on both.

                      The second was ticket #000. Told my wife I should just toss in garbage and not even scratch. Proceded to tell her my theory. Sure enough nothing!

                      Gets pretty bad when you predict what ticket is winner and be almost accurate.

                        Agree and funny you mention the randomization. The $100 winner was 030 and the $50 winner was 029. I have seen too many times with my packs that back half/front half is drastically different in prize amounts. It almost seems like they put better prizes late knowing people will chase. If someone hits $1K on 000 the store owner will sned it back or tell people to avoid that pack, causing the lottery to lose even more money on the pack. I know my $1k was in the back half of Casino Cash and know a few of my $500's were at the end also.

                            I video'd me scanning my $1000 winner. Suck a geek :)   How long ago was the $25K and what ticket? Do you have a scan of it on here somewhere?

                              Just did an eyeball test and missed a 2nd $5 match on one ticket. Will scan tomorrow for confirmation, but it doesn't look like I missed anything.
