I played a scratch off ticket today for the first time in almost 2 weeks. Played 2 $2 Red Hot 5s and 1 $5 Red Hot 5s. 

Only winner was on the $5 Red Hot 5s and it was this....

 

 

 

 

Ticket #002 by the way. I figured it was $30 when I saw the first $2, but $25 is ok with me. $9 spent $25 back! That will hold me over till the new tickets come out.

    Nice hit Gold! You know I still have not seen a top prize on one of those yet. It is only $555 so stores would hang them up.

      Yeah I haven't seen one either. This is definitely my favorite $5 ticket since I started playing scratch offs. I have probably won $10 or $15 5-7 times, $20 once or twice, & $25 once. Even hit the $8 prize one time along with ticket a few times. 

      Hoping I'll find a top prize on this when I play again soon.

        The new tickets coming out next week seem pretty lame outside of the $5 ticket. I'll have to see the prize structure on it, but its called Super Tripler Win.

        Its just a match and win with a few symbols, but theres a triple bonus box. I'd guess theres some weird prizes on that ticket like a $300 winner or something. 

        They are also re-releases the Win $50 or $100 ticket. If I play its one time, but I'll make sure the odds aren't worse than the old one first because I have a feeling they'll make the odds slightly worse.

          Some wins from the past couple of weeks. 

          Same old story though.  Spent a lot to get them and gave most of it back.

            goherd, I'll be rooting for ya on the $10M Cash Spectacular second chance. I like how that's done. In Florida the few second chance drawings that happen are piddly. I know the odds are ridiculous, but saving one top prize for the second chance is nice (although the completely ambiguous years-long wait for the game to end--rather than just having a set date, however far out--is annoying).

              Thanks MrGray!  I agree though, waiting for a game to end sucks!

                Trying to play under control now.  Went to my work store today and played 100x because they were out of Cash Spectacular.  Thank goodness for that

                I bought ticket 013 and lost.  The last $500 win on 100x was on ticket #012 so I bought one more and sure enough!  Didn't buy anymore until after work.  I bought 2 50x tickets and a 20x.  Got a free ticket on one of the 50x and then this on the 20x

                Pretty good day.

                  Looks like you're cutting down on the losses little by little. Nice wins! Especially the 100x ones, never seen any of those 100x symbols in person. 

                   

                  I played 5 of the Super Tripler Win tickets today and won Ticket twice, so not too bad. Hopefully will have better luck tomorrow.

                    Thanks Gold! I just have to learn to quit if I lose on 2 tickets. Chasing is what kills me. I have very rarely hit anything over $100 chasing. All of my  $500 and  $1000 wins have been the first or second ticket out. I hit $1000 once chasing. 100x has been very good to me lately. The night before getting this $500 I won $100 with the win all symbol. Again I played 2 tickets. 

                    Side Story on chasing, I had been playing 21st Anniversary hoping to hit that last million or at least a big remaining prize. I played tickets 000-007 and only won a free ticket. Came back the next day to finish out the roll. The last 2 tickets were both $30 winners. I have always hated that game! That was when I knew I needed to cut back.

                      Yeah I am done. I have no control. Lost <snip> near $800 at 4 stores.

                        It happens to the best of us, but maybe not to that extent. Good luck on getting yourself under control.

                         

                        I have played like 3 more Super Tripler win's since the other day and nothing still. Have yet to win more than Free Ticket on it. I'm going to try it a few more times and If I still hit nothing much I'm done playing it for a while at least. 

                        Hoping I can find a really nice winner soon like $100 or more. Its been a while man. Haven't played a $10 ticket in ages, maybe I should give that win $50 or $100 ticket a shot one time, or nah lol. Never won more than Free Ticket on the older version of it.

                          Sorry to hear Goherd. I've had similar splurges before, but it isn't sustainable. It leads to a vicious cycle of chasing. If someone is buying through that many duds on a $25 ticket, chances are it is mostly likely a "revenue generating roll" with a poor return of probably $300/$1000. We have many rolls like that in FL. Buying one or two from a roll and being done is the way to go. 

                           

                          What works for me is: 

                          Paying all bills in advance (and leaving only what is necessary for gas/food in my bank account - this prevents me from even considering scratchoffs)

                           

                          If you really feel like it is a problem that isn't controllable, try attending a GA (Gambler's anonymous meeting). They offer really supportive and laid back groups across the country. I attended one during my last splurge.

                            In the last 10 days I haven't had too much luck except on the $5 Red Hot 5s. I have had another $20 winner and a $15 Winner on that ticket. Also a couple days ago I won $16 again on the $5 The Cash Wheel Ticket. $32 is best winner I had on The Cash Wheel, but that was 2-3 months ago. 

                             

                            Not playing too much and when I do its $2, $3 and $5 tickets.

                              Staying persistent on a ticket pays off. I have played the $5 Red Hot 5s quite a few times. Definitely $100-$200 worth, but I have had plenty of luck on them. The other day I played at a Publix, and bought 1 $5 Red Hot 5 from the counter and 1 from the machine. #026 and #033 both losers. Friday I go back, and decide to buy from the machine since the roll behind the counter has barely sold any tickets. Out pops ticket #030, and #033 was the one I had the day before. Barely anyone touched that roll in 1 day. Someone probably bought 2 $5s and didn't think to get a 3rd, which I can't blame. However if they bought one more or if someone came along 5-10 minutes sooner and bought I wouldn't be here to tell you this amazing story. Its been a while since I have hit big, but that drought is over thankfully. This win should hold me over for a while. 

                               

                               

                               

                               

                              $300 winner! Spent $9 actually, but still a great profit!
