I would sooner have a good shot of winning 500, than have alot of break even prizes in the book........................decent ticket if bought sparingly; don't recommend chasing a winner because there can be a dozen losers in a row................but if you catch a winner it could be a good one!  A few here and there from different stores seems the way to go with these!

Big Wins For All!

    Stopped in Pa and got 4 of these 10-13. Number 12 hit for 50 and was basically a win-all @ 5$ each. Could'nt find any in a machine which was strange.

      Thats how I am seeing it also. It's not a chase game. Add it to the mix and match and see what you come up with.

          I tried 8 more of the Frenzy's. Last one hit 20. Figured I would finish the pack and get the final 8 and zip. 16 tickets and 1 -$20 winner. I then got the first one off the next roll and got $40. Def seems like a hit or miss game. Guessing they put so many $500 winners out there, that there is alot of duds.

              Got the win 500 symbol on the last ticket in a book ! I bought the last 5 tickets at 711 in exton pa.

              A guy in front of me in line purchased 8 and won $10 and left pissed off. I asked the clerk how many were left and she said 5. I know her so she tells me when good wins have happened and what people have lost on prior to me coming in.
              Thats the store that sold the $100,000 $20 christmas ticket in 2011. The guy won on it 5 min before I got there!
              Its still hanging on the wall there. Any way I got the 5 tickets went to the car and the first 4 were all losers but 059
              had the burst win 500 symbol so that was awesome! Finally got one!

                Congrats! Still no luck here. And I have tried quite a few. It's hard to win still because PA puts so much junk in a roll with a decent win or two - but that shows you still can get lucky. I think I need to see if other areas do better than my area. Easier said than done though.

                  Nice win. Thats why I always like the last 5 or so on a $5 roll. I always seem to see something decent and I am only spending $25. I was able to have a family member taking me grocery shopping. I got one in the machine and the guy behind me said he hit $500 on it and also $1k twice on those "$" ticket. He must be a big spender, but told me ne never plays the $20's.. Food for thought

                      Still no luck. Two losers on this game today. And those Neon 9s- never playing them again! Last 6 in the roll and only #057 won for $10.  Am not paying any attention to the printed odds anymore; they are a joke. PA even brags on their website about the odds being uneven, calling it fun. It's not fun at all.

                        Same here Matt.

                        My winnings have been non existent. Stopped on way home from work and bought 500 frenzy and "7". Seems like there are winners again in the "7". 

                        Really died for a while for me. Will let you know what happens. Also bought $3 crossword which I never buy. Thought maybe I'd try some different ones.

                          Yeah, if I do play, maybe switch to older games. I think I am played out for now though. Send me a PM if you notice anything new.

                              A little bit of good news. Stopped at Sheetz that was recently opened near me. Never stopped there before.

                              Bought a $500 Frenzy and matched a number. Thought to myself "Whoopie another $5.00 win".

                              Surprisingly shocked it was a $50 win!
