marcie's avatar - Lottery-012.jpg

I am just curous? Once I won $200.00 that was it, it was one Christmas too. about $15 yrs. ago. LOL! sometimes I think those tickets are rip offs!! What do you think? How much have you won off of them. I am waiting to get some tickets from Fl. instant tickets I hope I get some winners Big time. Do you check to see how many winning tickets are out there for the Strarch off tickets. I do that sometimes. least you have a better chance of winning right? I like to go far out for my winning tickets. Nothing has happened yet, but I will I am thinking Possitive. Big Smile

 Two years ago, I hit twice for $500.00--One was from the Double Triple Cashword ($5.00 ticket), and the other was from the Extravaganza ($20.00 ticket). Haven't had much luck like that for awhile. The most I hit now seems to be $50.00.

Wow!!! keep at it. Maybe to day s my day!!!


I tried the $10 Big Winner Spectacular for a change, and first time on a $10 ticket I won $100! So $100 is my new maximum. Are $10 tickets worth playing more?

The most I've won is $25 on a scratcher.  I did once win $100 on a second chance drawing for a scratch off I mailed in.

Haven't done much better, at least not yet.


The most i have won was $100 on a scratch off.

$500 2 years ago on a $10 ticket


Back in April of this year, I won $10,000 on the Illinois Lotteries $5 $75,000 Crossword instant. The ticket

is still taped to the lottery machine at the Shell station where I won it. I may ask the owner if I can

have it when he takes it down.... I buy enough tickets there. I'll post it here if he does.


BTW, when I cashed it in, after taxes, it came to $7,200. 25% federal, 3% state.


Prior to that, in November of 2007 I won $5000 on a $3 Candy Cane crossword instant. That win

could'nt have come at a better time. I had only $3 in my pocket, had no money left after paying

the mortage and some unexpected car repairs.

Just curious, why does the gas station have the wnning ticket? Do the winning tickets get mailed back to the store after the winner cashes it in?

In FL, anything over $599 has to get cashed in at the lottery office. They kept my tickets the last 3 times I went in their, especially on my big one. I really wanted to keep the ticket where I won a top prize, but they woudlnt give it to me =(


From what I understand, larger winning instants (usually $1000 or more) are given back to the

retailer that sold them after they are claimed/paid. Kind of a "look what a lucky retailer I am"

kind of thing.


It's been that way for as long as I can remember with the Illinois lottery.
