      He lives in Florida, so a $10 and $20 book both cost $600 here. I know books are larger, and as a result cost more up in NY. 

       

      As to the OP, personally I'd recommend  buying random $10 and $20 tickets (2 from a roll) from random locations. I've bought several $10 books of 200MS, $10 Holiday Gifts, and 50X The Cash here in Florida. 

       

      When you buy a book of a $10 ticket/$20 ticket, the minimum return is $205/$600. Average returns around probably about $300-$350, and a "Good book" is going to return $400+, or yield a profit if you hit multiple $100 winners or a bigger win. I always do better when I buy random tickets compared to buying books. Since the $20 Monopoly ticket recently had a $5 million top prize hit, maybe focus on other Monopoly tickets or various other tickets which may be "due for a hit".

        I'm curious: do store owners have a choice of buying good or bad rolls of tickets? 

        for example: a clerk can buy a $300 roll of <snip>ty $10 tickets, or a $600 roll of good paying $10 tickets?

          I'd say go for the $20 because of a higher jackpot, less total tickets, better odds.
