Stumbled across some good fortune today playing the newest $20 game ($4,000,000 Multiplier Spectacular). Bought one ticket, #001, out of the kiosk at a Rite-Aid of all places. Ended up scratching and revealing a $150 prize!

While it makes sense that the first/last tickets might produce more winners, it's probably a fallacy. All of my big winners (i.e., $100+), in fact, have never been from #000 or #029 (the first/last on $20 tickets). So I wouldn't be overly discouraged that your store clerks are ganking tickets, although it is shady on their part. I'd wager they're getting more losers than winners. Green laugh

            I Finally Won Big!! Went out today and bought $25 worth of various tickets a few $5, few $3, few $2. from a Kiosk at a grocery store.

            The $5 Green Gold Was a $500 Winner!! Finally! After 2 years of playing this is the most I've ever won.

             

            I thought it was $250 then I scratched the back side and won another $250...

              Very nice hit! $500 on a $5 ticket is pretty hard to come by.

              Enjoy your win, and don't put too much of it back into buying more tickets! No No

                Here's my winner. I usually only $5 $10 or $20 tickets if my money allows it. I scratched in the store last night. I'd have a $20 winner here,  a $25 winner  there and also a $50 winner. Something told me to keep scratching until I hit big or until I lost that initial $20. Glad I listened

                    Wow, Very Nice $1000 Win!!

                    I'm planning a new scratch off experiment where I buy 50 $2 tickets and see what I get.

                    If I do this, I'll buy 10 $2 tickets from 5 different locations that I know have lots of winners and post the Before and After photos here.

                    Good Luck to all and please post your winners here!!

                    I'll also mention that I occasionally go to Harrah's in Cherokee NC and play the slots. Anyone else ever go to Harrah's? Not getting off topic just curious?

                      No, I'v never been to Harrahs, but I used to work at one of the "internet sweepstakes" places in western NC, was a great job. Thank the state for shutting it down, I was supporting my family (wife, 2 kids) on my own with that job working 50-60 hours a week. It's not different than scratch offs or the lottery, but harrahs didnt like the competition. So many customers told us they came to where i worked instead of driving to Harrahs due to harrahs messing with their machines while they were doin the renovations and upgrades to the place.

                          I dropped 100.00 on the 20.00 4mil Multiplier Spectacular today.  Got tickets 005 through 009 on the roll.  The very first line I scratched off on the 1rst ticket 005 revealed the "100.00 win" symbol.  On the 3rd ticket I got 2x 10.00 for a 20.00 win.  There were no instant wins on the other 3 tickets but have not scratched the matching numbers yet (gives me a headache on 20.00 tickets).  I will check tomorrow but so far for the 1rst time in 2-3 months I got my money back plus 20.00 on a 100.00 of 20.00 scratch offs I play once a month.  I will let it all ride tomorrow like I usually do.  I know that is not recommended but I play to win big.  A few months ago I won 500.00 on a 20.00 scratchy and it took 4-5 days to dwindle it down to nothing.   Kind of funny but eventually I got down to my last 10.00 and won 100.00 on a 2.00 scratchy.  Cashed that in for 5 20.00s and did not win a dime.   First time that had ever happened on 100.00 worth of 20.00 sratch offs.  I thought 1 of every 2.5 tickets were at least break even???? The only time I have cashed in and did not let it all ride was when I won 2700.00 a couple of months ago on Pick 4. (That went to bills).

                          So any suggestions on where I let this 120.00 and maybe more ride tomorrow?  Should I cash in for 6 more 20.00 4 mil Multi Spectaculars?   I saw it posted on here that it is better to purchased 1-2 tickets from different rolls.  I agree if you are looking to break even or make a small profit.  I feel the best chances of hitting a big ticket you need to buy all from the same roll.

                          Anyone read about the women who just won 1 million on a $4,000,000 million spectacular scratcher? The story says she never played a scratch off before in her life, and managed to win big on her first one ever. I seem to hear these stories of blind luck more often than not (e.g., guy wins powerball with the last $5 in his bank account).

                          It makes me wonder if they're legit, or if the lottery essentially plants these stories to drum up buzz about playing? In other words, the lucky winner comes to the lottery office and the officials there say, "Congratulations! Here's how we'd like for you to say you won...". Better to put out a story of ridiculously good fortune as opposed to a story where someone who spends hundreds every week/month finally hit big. To me, that's just clever marketing. 

                          Maybe I'm wrong and my eye has just been trained to fixate on those types of winners. Seems so incredibly unlikely though that a 1st time scratcher would take home a million. Either way, good for her! I hope one day I can figure out the answer to my question first hand! Wink

                            I think the majority of players that win the lottery nationwide say that.  I think no one wants to admit publicly that they have a gambling problem or how much they really play.

                              New NC Scratch Offs came out today! Had to hunt these down at several places to find gas stations that had them.

                              Results will follow...
