good, now i can stop buying

The $1 Million Jackpot ($10) card is looking good right now. Only one of the top prizes has been hit on it, so it's about due.

    Bought 3 of the new 20 dollar 200 mil Blowout tickets yesterday.   Won 125.00 (100.00 on 1, 25.00 on 1, 0 on the other).  Will probably let the 100.00 ticket ride on 5 more today.  Will let you know how that goes.

      Got 30 bucks on 1 ticket and zilch on the other 4.  I need to learn to pocket my winnings.  Instead of coming out 65.00 ahead I am now 5 bucks in the hole.

        There are currently two different $2,500 a Week for Life games.  Game number 305 has been out for a long time and it is crazy-due for the final jackpot.  As in, if you bought all the remaining tickets it would cost about $1.8 million but there would be $3.3 million dollars in prizes.  (I calculated this number by estimating the number of tickets remaining based on how many break-even and 2x return tickets are outstanding).  You have better than a 1 in 380,000 chance of winning the jackpot on a single ticket, and the jackpot is worth at least $2.6 million (since they guarantee 20 years of payout).

         

        Game number 398, on the other hand, has middling odds.

         

        My problem is I can't find any more game 305's anywhere.  If you find some (and don't win the jackpot) could you please let me know where you found them and if they have any left.  You can tell them apart by looking at the UPC code on the back and seeing if it has 305 or 398 in it.  You can also tell if it has the 2-d barcode at the bottom once scratched off.  The ones with the 2-d barcode are game 398.

        Thanks.

            Ideally, I'd get to buy the whole roll, but yeah.

              So I found a vending machine with the old 2500 a month games. I've been buying them for the last 2 weeks. Started at #39 and now at 28. So far only won 15 dollars, should I buy the rest or buy 3-4 at a time. 2 weeks and only 10 cards sold
