I have bought rolls of other scratch offs in the past for my wife's birthday and usually she gets about half the amount back. I decided to try a roll myself this week. I bought a roll of the $10,000,000 Florida Cash scratch offs. They are $25 each with 40 in a roll for $1,000. I was lucky and got a nice win on #25, without it I would have got about half my money back like usual. Instead I ended up $70 ahead; here were my winners. It started off real bad with seven straight losers, I was getting a bit frustrated not to win anything for sooooo long. 

7 - $25

8 - $30

9 - $50

11 - $40

12 - $25

15 - $25

19 - $100

20 - $30

23 - $25

24 - $25

25 - $500

29 - $25

34 - $30

37 - $40

39 - $100

Total Winnings #1,070

Just wanted to share my experience. Big winner

          Good for you for giving it a shot ... I have also bought some books through the years ... never came out ahead yet.

          You were lucky to break even ... the lottery has to make a profit on that game so most books are going to be losers ... with all those fairly large prizes to pay off and then the $10 million also ... and then the lottery profit after all the prizes are covered.

          You had some luck going with you ... but you never know, might have really paid off.

          ...

                My thoughts right now are to keep the $70 profit, and take the $1,000 to buy another roll. You can't win if you don't play right?  I was willing to take the chance on the first roll of not winning anything big and losing half my money. So since I got my money back from that roll, why not try another one?  Someone has to win the big prizes, lol

                  Well today I traded in my winners and bought another roll. My first roll was from a Winn Dixie and my this roll is from a Publix.

                   

                  0 - $30

                  6 - $40

                  14 - $25

                  17 - $25

                  18 - $30

                  22 - $25

                  24 - $25

                  26 - $40

                  28 - $30

                  33 - $25

                  34 - $25

                  35 - $40

                  Total winnings $360

                   

                  Ouch this roll really hurt. I was not expecting to hit another $500 but figured I would do much better than this. Besides the big ticket, in the last roll I had three more tickets that were higher than any on this roll ($100, $100, $50). I enjoyed scratching the first roll, but this one was almost depressing. The number of losers and mostly just $25 winners took some of the joy out of this roll :(

                    that seems like something NY would do on a roll - that is depressing 36% back on a $25 ticket

                      Ouch....I probably would've taken the profit and bought a roll that costs as close to that number as possible, or just spend some of it on more tickets.

                      The thing about ≥$20 tickets and is that while they have better overall payouts, their guaranteed/minimum payout per roll actually tends to be worse than lower-denomination rolls (36% is low, but not a complete surprise). So would have to be able to stomach buying more rolls in order to bring the average up. In my state there is a negative correlation between guaranteed payout per roll and the cost of the ticket, but a positive correlation between overall game return and cost of the ticket. It seems somewhat paradoxical until you realize that the overall payout is likely being most boosted by the higher top prizes.

                      If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
                      If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?
