i have walked in the store here in Tennessee and bought 8-10 $25 tickets in a row and nothing!!!! Happens here in Tennessee A LOT!!
Happens here in New York too, and I'm venturing just about everywhere else! Bought 10 $25 NY Millions tickets, 001-10, nothing.
And one would think that the next several tickets would have big money on them. Nope, #11 had $50, #13 had $50 and #17 had $100.
It wasn't until tickets 21-25 that there was a decent return, $220 total on four tickets but again, one would think that at least one ticket would be a big winner!

I'm in California but I got caught up,in a losing streak on 5$ crossword starting at the rear of the pack as most vending machines here start from the last ticket I bought 79-68 all losers with 67 being a free ticket.
I think it's almost always a mistake to buy into a losing streak or chase a win as I call it. If you don't hit a winner in 4-6 tickets just walk away. It's a sign of a low payout pack.
Three maybe four is my limit. But usually three...
Take Risks: If you win, you'll be happy. If you lose, you will be wiser...

I used to scratch a lot. I used to go down a roll. Most o ever won was $500. I heard not all the time but every 3 tickets or so on the 20 dollars starting from #1 is a good chance. I hear the 20$ ones in the vending ma ch ine too are good u know. Places around me have sold $1 and $5 million dollar tickets. If the first or last don't have a winner I usually leave it alone in my mind
I've seen rolls that the first 10 in a row have winners and then the rest like 2..

I bought 6 $2 tickets in wisconsin. All duds.
Contrast that my 2 chances strategy: bought 2 $5 games i never played or researched before just as souvenirs in different states. Won $10 and $15.
However i bought 2 $10 tickets and they were duds. Has anyone watched the youtube videos where someone buys a roll of $30 tickets? It's sad.
I'm just going to stick with 2 $5 at a time. I had good luck with those. $10 is too much of a risk for 1 ticket and the lower tickets don't pay out much.

Last two times I bought tickets ,, Its been disaster
$60 spent on twelve $2,500 for life $5 tickets on Wed = Just a $10 win
$80 spent on four $3,000,000 Jumbo Bucks $20 tickets today = No wins
I break my buying down into qtrs (3 months for each qtr of year) and so far the 1st month of new qtr for me I am at -$250 in my spending
Sucks when you hit a skid ,, Probably will cut back my spending for a while to soften loss before jumping back in maybe in August or Sept

That's nots fair. They should atleast give some money back, or a free ticket. I still haven't spent more than $10 on a ticket. I bought 2 $10 and lost and was utterly disappointed. Luckily I made it up later in the week with $5 ones.
