Found some "hidden" money and was thinking of spending $2K on a ticket or tickets hoping to win a $5K. $10K or $20K or ? -but  not really interested in going for a top prize - odds are way too high and I'm not thast greedy :):)

So what would you buy ? All on one - a mix ?

NO $1,00 to $5.00 tickets please.

I'll post the results afterwards.

THANKS !!!

          Skeptic, The $25 Florida Cash was amazing for me in April with a $1,000 win, 2 x $500 wins, a $400 win and numerous $100 wins.  But the month of May the Florida cash buried me with massive losers.  The $10 and $20 Gold Rush has been a scam as far as I am concerned.  Massive losers since they released them, at least here in Orlando.  The $20 Monopoly Millionaire has been consistently okay for me with most times I get a $30 or $40 back.  Nothing huge, but not a lot of losing tickets for me. 

           

          My suggestions is the $25 Florida Cash or the $20 Monopoly Millionaire.  If you can find a book of the old $10 $200 Million Spectacular go for it.  I always did well with that one, but can't find them any more in my area.

            I don't live in FL so I can't suggest a ticket type. But I'm curious if you would consider doing the project on YouTube. Call it $2,000 FL Lottery Project or something and scratch off on camera. You must as well profit a little from all that work by getting web hits. Whichever way you decide, good luck and I hope you win big Thumbs Up

            That money's gone fo ever

              Get 20 cash 3 quick picks and put $100 on each one. Big Grin

               

              If you box the tickets,your chances of winning $8,000 would be like 1:8 . A straight hit would pay $50k. I know its not as exciting as scratch offs and revealing 100x or 50x symbols but your odds are extremely better.

                If your going to spend that much i would road trip to the area in FL that sells the most top prizes.

                  Ask this question 5 years ago I would say you could go with anyone cause you might actually hit something. These days though, I dont like anything they have on offer, but I would likely go with the yellow LFL or 100X if you could find them. 

                  I would avoid GR, Monopoly, Super Millions, Flamingo Fortune those games just blow and some have no top prizes left
