If you've only been winning $25, 30 to $40 in the past weeks and wonder what happened to WIN ALLS , 25X, 100X etc wins - there might be a reason.

There are two $5M wins left and 18 1M wins left as of today. The Florida lottery never reveals how many lower tier prizes are left on any game, but a lot of other states do. I wonder why ? A fairly reliable source with a lottery connection informed me yesterday that the better wins are just about GONE and what's left are small junk prizes. Although an occasional nice win will slip through. Reason being: the lottery can't and will not close out the 100X game with that many big wins left, but they can stop generating good size lower tier prizes and keep us suckers buying these tickets so they make money.

Post your thoughts and recent wins/loses - and compare them if you can to wins/loses from the over past months or year. Let's see if there's any rhyme or reason to the sudden drop in better prizes. I myself over the past 3 weeks have gone through 100 tickets - bought 7 or 8 at a time from my fav places that have always produced decent wins. Out of this batch my best was ONE $100 and roughly 75 - 80 duds ! My other friends have experienced the same crappy results. And before the last 3 or 4 weeks they would come up $500's a couple of $1,000's - they did buy a lot of tickets too. Now they all stopped buying 100X.

Hope you players will respond !

    I have purchased 10 during the past couple of weeks.  9 out of 10 were losers.  One ticket I won $25 back.  Surely not the odds advertised and not what I would expect from a $25 scratcher.

      I have not purchased very many at once.  However, I had not had any real luck recently either.  The few I have purchased have been mostly $25 or $40 wins.  However, when I looked at the Instant Liability Report before the game was reordered (which always dilutes the top prizes), the prizes were being won in a fairly even distribution.  It is possible that you were getting luckier before and not so much now.  Remember the odds of winning $1,000 is about 1 in 1,200 and even $500 odds are about 1 in 352.  Either way, I hope you have better luck soon.

        my brother sent me a 2x $25 winner that was already scratched( he lives out out state). He bought them back in June, I cashed them in at the end of sept for 2 more and both loss.

        I bought one 2 weeks ago and won $25. Honestly never won anything on that game..the old $25 I did ok. But it's all about that old gold rush :)

          Skeptic,

          I have gotten the number of smaller prizes remaining from the fla office before, but its been a year or so since ive done that, i think they have gone full corrupt, how can high roller still have grand prize winner on it.  I try not to play much anymore, its all garbage, the 3 stores i play at havent sold a good ticket since my 2012 jubilee, or was it 2011.

          biggest hit 10k, Jubilee, 5K Miami Heat, 2K Emerald 8s, 1k jubilee, 1k GRT, 1k heat wave, multiple 500's

          good luck in the chase 2013 wins, maybe 4 500's
