    2020-09-03 California Lottery Golden State Riches

    It has been a pretty rough past few weeks. I've been dealing with the pandemic, the California wildfires, and tight deadlines at work.

    Also, my last few trips to the casino have been duds. Consequently, I've taken a break from slot machines, but I've substituted them with Scratchers.

    I usually stick to $10 tickets, but I reinvest winnings from those into $20 or $30 tickets. The majority of tickets are losers, of course, but one $20 ticket finally paid off today!



    $1,000! Thatís my largest Scratchers win to date! Yes, the symbols have to match to win the prize, but you already knew that.

    I wasnít expecting any more wins at this point, so I immediately scratched the area to reveal the ticketís bar code, and when I scanned it with the CA Lottery app, it revealed a prize of just $1,000.



    I'll have to leave work a little early to stop by the District Office, before it closes, to claim the prize. I wonder if they'll give me the large novelty check if I asked for it. (Laughs)

    Thanks for posting your win. Hope you got your $1000 check. I've also starting buying scratchers, won $100 & 50 on the $10K per week for life and a few free ticket winners. Having the best luck with $10 scratchers. Many gas stations are out of scratchers or have limited supply.

    Stopped by a Chevron station in the neighboring fancy town, they were fully stocked.

    Thank you. Scratchers are pretty plentiful here, around Sacramento.

    Pre-Covid, our district office would pay people on the spot if their winnings were $1,000 or less. Now, theyíve gone back to mailing checks.

    The claim form I submitted with the winning ticket said I had to wait 6 to 8 weeks until I receive that check. That means I wonít be losing that money to the casino anytime soon. LOL.

    Various people online said they got their winnings much sooner, though.

    Great win. Hope you continue to have luck.
    Our lottery has some stores that will pay up to $5999 or under and if it is over $6000 you have to mail it to the lottery office or make an appointment with the lottery office to get a check.
    A few years ago I won $4000 on a $1 scratcher. I do not buy scratchers as much as I used to. I win more money playing Cash 5 and Pick 3.
    Keep winning.

    I would have to say 333. It used to come up at least once a year but has not come up in about 3 years. I play it everyday hoping to win $500. I also like 500 which most of the time will come up as 005.
    It is funny you asked that though. Last night there were hints all over for me to play 419. I played 496 but not 419. Of course 419 came up in that order. My husbands youngest brothers birthday is 419.
    I do not know if you know what mirror numbers are but the mirror number for 419 is 964. I usually play most of my numbers in a box so they can be in any order.
    For mirror numbers you add 5 or take away 5. So for the number 0 would be 5, 1 would be 6, 2 is 7, 3 is 8, 4 is 9 and of course 5 would be 0.
    If you play pick 3 try the mirror of your numbers sometime. It is weird how the mirror will come up at times.
    Good luck playing.

    Hooray! Guess I didn’t have to wait very long for the check. Just one week, not the 6 to 8 the claim forms advertise.

    Now I can decide if I want to go to the casino or not. LOL.
