I know I don't post on here often, but I have to tell you what a horrible day I had yesterday. In the morning I went to my local convenience store and lost $180 on a mix of the $20 ticket 100x and the $10 ticket Cash Craze. Later in the evening, I went to my second regular store and lost $400 on the Cash Craze!! I started playing on number 15 and went all the way to the end of the pack (35 tickets folks). I checked all the tickets on the scanner like I always do and got nothing more than $20 which I used to play more tickets. What a joke this is. This ticket just came out recently and the first day I got a Craze symbol for $200 (20x with $10 under it) . Of course I spent all that immediately like an idiot. Anyway, this is just not fun anymore. I used to see some Texas players on this forum posting some good wins. They are just not happening anymore, at least not in my area. Good luck everyone!

    I never played much in Texas when I lived there. Broke even (completely! For the probably 40 bucks total I spent. My final 12 dollar winner I gave to a homeless guy. It just wasn't my thing then. Probably a good thing. Looks like tickets aren't great.)

    I was like he probably needs it more than I do if I'm just gonna play lottery and eat junk. I was a lot more stable then. Wtf happened.

            Queens? Cool. I am from Harlem, but have alot of family in Queens (Astoria and Jamaica Queens). Smile

             

            Sorry to hear the Texas tickets are rough. I'm hearing alot of people struggling with luck lately in many states. I've cut down and only scratch 2 times a month now because of how bad FL lottery has gotten.

              I'm trying a new strat where I play usually in the $20 spurts until I'm out of cash, then take all the winners and toss them in the bank, wait til next check and start again. (After bills of course). Most recent 2 day spree only lost 100, rest in bank...not bad at all!

                Hi Dracos, yeah I am from Jackson Heights. I spent a lot of time in Astoria growing up. Very cool that you are from Harlem. Anyway, thanks for your reply. I have to develop a new strategy or not play at all. Maybe I will try 2 times a month as well. Take care and good luck!

                  Coal Thumb, that sounds like a good plan! I definitely need to change the way I am playing and if I do win I need to walk away with the money. Good luck to you!

                    The 50$ tickets here in Texas are a complete rip off, hard to even hit 100$ on those ones. 20$ tickets like        HIT 1000000 and 100X are ok, i've had some decent luck on HIT 1Mil....bunch of 200$ winners and few 500$ ones. on the 100X its fairly easy to hit 100$ but anything over that you have to be very very lucky. I have never seen 20X 50X or 100X symbols. When it comes to 10$ tickets, they can either run very hot or very cold. I like the HIT 500K one but dislike the new ticket Cash Craze.....bought maybe 50-100 of those tickets and never seen a winner more than 20$. When it comes to lottery, the odds of winning a good amount on a tickets keep on going down year after year. Why cant i just hit 1 grand prize on any ticket so i can stop throwing my money away.

                      Hi Playernumbertwo,

                      Thanks for your post. Sorry you are not having much luck either. I have not played for a few days because my luck has been so bad on all tickets. The string of losers on the $5 ticket and up is really pathetic. Anyway, I hope you do hit a big one soon. Good luck to you!
