I have entered over 10,000 tickets, and I haven't won anything. Has anyone on here won anything, and how many have you entered so far?

      I enter my Weekly Grand tickets for the 2nd chance drawing that they have each  month but it's no where near the amount of those tickets. I usually only enter 5-10 tickets a month. Eek

      I haven't won on it yet.

          California. Honestly, I don't think it make a difference if you enter 1 or 1000. It all depend on luck.

            I'm cool with a gas station clerk near me, and they have a little box near the scanner for people to dump their losers, so he lets me take them (less for him to clear up), so I had about 95k in points last year. I ended up dumping all of them into the monthly draw for $100 worth of instant tickets (a 3 points a piece, that was over 31k entries).

            No luck. Crying

                    I have never entered second chance tickets. In my state of Mass. a few months ago there was a woman who won on a second chance drawing on a 30 dollar scratch ticket. There were over 900,000 entries for one win. I think it's a waste of time. The person who started this thread entered 10.000 tickets and won nothing. You could have someone enter 1 ticket and win since it's all random. I use to think that people who entered so many tickets had a much better chance but apparently it's not the case.

                      I don't know how many I've entered-- countless, lol!  We're allowed to enter 75 tickets per day (with varying points for each ticket).  I enter 75 if I have them-- people give them to me, and I get them out of the top of trash cans--I don't "dig"!! I just got an email yesterday informing me that I had won $500 in a weekly drawing. 'Bout time!! Good luck to all-- don't give up.

                        That's a nice 2nd chance win ... probably no taxes to pay unless you maybe win again ... don't know if the 2nd chance wins are all totaled together for the year or kept separate.

                        I also will look at tickets tossed in the trash can ... if no one else is there at the time, usually when I check them on the computer later ... they have already been entered.

                        Looks like everyone is entering their tickets these days ... this is not a "2nd chance" story, this happened many years ago at a small convience store, as I was leaving I saw an enormous bunch of tickets on the top of an outside trash can by the door. I grabbed them all to check out later ... there were scratch offs and only Pick 4 tickets, most of the Pick 4 tickets were $.50 straight and box ... no money on the few scratch off tickets but there must have been about $25 in Pick 4 tickets tossed out ... kept checking and almost to the end found a $100 winner ... it was a $.50 boxed number.

                        They got careless and missed that winner ... if I hadn't grabbed those tickets and more trash had covered them up, there's a very good chance that $100 winner would never have been cashed ... unless the store employees went through everything later near closing time.

                        I really would like to check all the trash cans in PA ... imagine what might be in some of them, besides garbage !

                         

                        purluesky ... I'm impressed with that photo of all those tickets, mind-boggling ... watch out for "spontaneous combustion" with them all packed so tight !!!

                          I usually enter 10 - 15 per week and haven't won anything.  A lady who works in the same building with me had her husband win a 2nd chance drawing years ago, back when they had a cheesey weekly television show and he got to be on the show.

                          Here's wishing everyone the good fortune they're looking for.  Remember, if you happen to win more than a couple bucks, try and donate a little to one of your favorite charities - keep that positive mojo working!

                              WOW!! I can't believe you've not won anything! I've won quite a bit. When I won the $20,000 taxes paid, I had only 6 tickets entered for that weeks drawing.  Don't give up! I hope you win something soon!

                              I am a $20,000 winner from a Georgia Lottery scratch off game called "$3,000,000 Taxes Paid"!
