Well folks here is me saying good bye to buying more than one scratch off!  I have had it.  Over the past week the $30 ticket (and others) is robbing me blind.  I lost $120 playing earlier in the week and I went through an entire roll today.  There were 3 winners, $50 and 2 Free tickets.  The $50 win didn't come until ticket #004.  So that was 5 losers in a row before paying a sorry $50 win on a $30 ticket!  I went to another store and lost another $80 on 4 random $20 tickets.  I am down close to (if not) $300 today.  At this point I need to hit a huge win to feel good about it.  And being those are far and few between I may as well quit.  This has been a roller coaster year for me and I am about ready to hurl! LOL!  I will keep checking on you guys but time for me to lay low.  Good luck!

A break is good. From what i see it looks like you have some pretty good luck. I've seen players spend a ton and not win nothing big.

    Hey goherd14,


    A break may be good, but don't forget about your recent wins either. I don't know how much you played to get them, but I remember at least $1000 or darn near it worth of winners you posted on the previous page. Again, if you spent $900 to get them, that it's not that big of a win... I guess my point is I don't think there are too many people here who take getting blasted with losing tickets harder than I do but just remember that's why its called gambling.

     

    Good luck to you whichever way you decide, but I think slowing down is a good idea. I've done it, and while I'm not winning any more than I was winning... I'm not spending as much as I used to for sure. I have it to the point now where I'm ok with only playing a handful of smaller tickets per week. I tried one $10 10X the money (PA ticket) yesterday and lost, and went on my merry way. A week before I bought a $3 Merry and Bright christmas ticket that hit for $30. Two days ago I tried 4 $5 bingos that lost, tried 2 more that hit $15, played one $20 losing ticket and then played one final $20 ticket that hit for $40. Walked out before things got bad.

     

     

    If I do grab a ticket or two today, which I probably will, I won't go overboard. I think I might even leave my wallet and ATM card at home that way I only have what i walk into the store with.

      Thanks Redstang and Getreal. I play too much is the problem. I don't go long enough between wins. So if i hit $500 tomorrow i feel i have only won my money back and will continue to play trying to get ahead. We all know how that turns out. You end up losing that $500 plus you tap the bank account. And the cycle continues!

      2014 $500+ Wins: 2 - $500 Luck Loot, 2 - $500 Millionaire Jumbo Bucks, 2 - $500 50X the Money, 8 - $500 Cash Spectacular, 1 - $1,000 Monopoly Millionaire, 3 - $1,000 Cash Spectacular, 1 - $500 - $7500 a Week for Life, 1 - $500 100X the Money

        Didn't stick to my guns and bought tickets today. :(  I ended up buying 6 of the $30 tickets.  Thank goodness this was the 6th!

        So with this I won back the money I lost over the past couple days.  Time to lay low for real now.  I will play Cash 3 and Cash 4 but my addiction to these instant games has gotta go!  Good luck everyone.

              Bought 1 $10 Jingle Jumbo Bucks #004, and 2 of the New $5 EZ Grand #058 & #057. #058 was a $15 winner on 2 number matches & then on the Jingle Jumbo Bucks I won $20, but not how I expected it to happen.

               

               

              I was so happy to see 2 Jingle Symbols, but for $2's to be under them was disappointing. I was thinking it would be a $100 winner, but of course it wasn't lol. Can't complain about a $15 profit total.

                Had to pickup dinner last night and needed to play cash 3 and cash 4.  There were several stores near where I was going but I couldn't decide which one since I thought maybe I will buy a ticket or 2.  Ultimately I decided on a QT because I typically don't buy tickets from there which is what I am trying not to do.  I filled out my ticket and proceeded to the machine as they have one of those full serve vending machines.  Well I wanted to play 2222 and 4444 in cash 4 but they were sold out.  So with the money already in the machine I picked a $2 ticket.  Then I said what the heck I will buy a $30 ticket.  It ended up being the last $30 ticket in the machine.

                I have to say that is the strangest $500 win I have seen but I will take it!  Glad I had the hunch and decided to play it!  Good luck everyone.

                    It is too quiet in here!  I guess you guys are not playing or the wins are scarce.  Not a big win but 100 on a $5 ticket is always good.

                     

                    I am trying to stick to cash 3 and cash 4 but the <snip> scratch offs keep calling me!

                      I just got a reality check!  I am done with scratchers!  I just keyed in a losing $30 ticket and noticed my entry count.  I have 463 losers since February.  Not to mention how many I have thrown away and did not key.  463 x $30= $13,890!!!  What the hell am I doing!  And that is just on one ticket.  I play and lose on several $20 tickets as well.  I have now realized if I save my money I will have WAY more than I could ever win.  Just for kicks, take that $13,890 and divide it by 12.  I am donating $1157 to the GA lottery per month!  That is a mortgage payment!  How is that for reality?  I am done!

                        Weird, I've always looked at Georgia's tickets and think California should follow suit; you guys have much more interesting games. Sorry the payouts stink. That's the thing about the lotto though, you win when you least expect it. Took me 15 years of playing, but I won $1,000 on a Scratcher recently--and yes, like you, I'm also well in the hole. Not $14,000 in 12 months, but still pretty bad.

                          A couple months ago I had to re-evaluate what I was doing. Now I don't play too much because its not worth it. 

                           

                          All I played this week was 2 $10 Jingle Jumbo Bucks #017 & #016 and they lost. I also tried 5 of the $2 Hit $200! #031-#027 and won back $7. I got free ticket on #030 and $5 on #029. 

                          I'll probably play another $20-$30 later this month.

                            You're not alone. I had to slow down when i realized i was throwing away a Cadillac payment every month without even thinking about it.

                              Decided to buy $20 in tickets today, and I'm glad I did. Got 1 $10 Jingle Jumbo Bucks #027 and that won $10. I also got 2 $5 EZ Grand (053 & 052) and snagged this winner....
