I have been a constant Crossword Doubler player for 7 years now and notice this new style one that came out about 6 months ago has been not giving adequate winning tickets. People all around my area (Rockledge, FL.) have been complaining. Also we noticed Florida Lottery has done away with the 3 letter code that you can use to find out if you have a winning ticket. I wonder how many winners have been thrown out not realizing they missed rubbing out a few more letters.

The $10.00 1,000,000 Cashword game seems to be a farce. The first time I bought one I thought they were going to use all of the vowels like the crossword doubler  and found out I needed and "E" to complete 5 words. Well you got it, I got no E's or A's to rub off. I haven't gotten 3 words in 1 game yet for a $10.00 return. Are these games a way for Florida to get back at the people for not paying state taxes?  LOL.

    The lottery IS a state tax for all intended purposes.

      This. It essentially is because the vast majority lose money, and an extremely small percentage win. Continuing to play long-term almost ensures a loss unless someone hits a jackpot. 

       

      As far as the Florida crossword games, I agree with you Garee that they've sucked whenever I've played them. I've played them in Jacksonville, and Gainesville. I've encountered 6-7 losers in a row on the $10 crossword, which then had a...Drum roll....$10 "Winner"

       

      Also, welcome to Lottery Post Garee!

        With tickets like Crossword and Bingo, it is a good idea to check them with one of the ticket scanners to make sure they were not winners...
