any advice on playin the Frenzy

I've won $50 twice only buying single tickets.

One in a grocery store and one in a Sheetz. Both random buys because I was in the stores at the time.

I really do believe there are "good" rolls and "bad" rolls.

I went back later and the machine was empty. Really wanted to try my theory.

      I agree! Buy one or two at different places. They stink for me that way but if what you say is true about these things,
      then there are BIG stretches of NON WINNERS.

      I find the same thing lee....they sell out like crazy and I don't know why? There are a lot of $500 winners in the run
      and I think some people that've won that amount already buy them up.

      I don't see another ticket selling out at that rate, a lot of place I go, the bins are empty for that ticket.
      (sheesh, wish I could get in on the frenzy..I haven't found anything good yet)

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

        I have purchased alot of $5 rolls before and will generally see a run of 10 losers. I have never seen a game like Frenzy. I haven;t gotten a roll of them, but I am very curious how it would play out. I have mentioned before that I have seen 8-10 in a row lose alot. Also 1 win out of 16-20 a few times. It does seem like a cluster game. When I win, it will be $20 or $40 and even 1-$100. I never seem to get $5/$10 wins on them. Usually other $5 games, you can buy 10 and generally get 2 maybe 3 winners.  This is my take on Frenzy. Only buy one or two at a time or maybe get the last 5-6 on a roll, so you can't chase a winner. It just doesn't seem like a game that pays to buy them in bulk. Too many losers to make up for all the extra $500 winners out there.

          Talked to the owner of the local 7-11 I go to all the time. He said they can't keep enough and people have left if there aren't any.

          Boy does the PA lottery have people brain washed lol.

          I asked if he ever had a $500 burst winner and he said no. Go figure and they sell alot of tickets.

            so should i keep playin or.should i give up

            I say if you can get more from the same roll, then I would. Not sure what ticket #'s you got, but you don't want to leave 20 tickets behind with a decent win. I have never seen a $5 pack pay out less than $140 and generally it is $160, so the last 20 tickets should be a profit.

              I swear they have the mind control thing down for this state...maybe it's the colors, maybe it's the ticket names (with
              Frenzy, you know what that implies...a winning frenzy) they play with the number arrangement and bring out new
              games every month. WHY? I think if they could keep up with it, they'd bring them out every 2 weeks.
              I'm not too keen on the instants lately, there is a big change and I'd say it was in the last year or year and a half.
              Sure there are winners out there and I'm happy to see anyone that gets one because they really changed things
              and if some people can crack away at them and win, good!!

                    Are you sure you aren't missing any winners? I mean this IS PA, but 40 is a lot.

                      I agree. Matt. Says he is from Collegeville. Maybe we need to avoid whatever store he is visiting....

                          I think in 2 days I have more winners total on Wheel of Fortune then I did on Frenzy. A few more WOF hits and the $ amount will be higher too. Frenzy for me was absolute junk. Like someone else said though, everywhere I go, they are sold out. Guess people wanted the $500 hit

                            Tried 1 yesterday and 4 more today. All losers. The 4 today took it to ticket 051. Debated going back for the final 8, but this ticket is a huge waste of money.
