    scratch off, how often do you guys play

    I am ashamed to say that i am currently purchasing 1 $5 ticket daily for the California Millionaire scratcher.  I am trying to save up enough tickets to be able to mail in  at least 100 tickets all in one day for one drawing.  I have been saving to 3 months.  I am giving myself ONE drawing to shoot for.  After that its over.  I never played scratchers and won't play again after that.  I did it to increase my chances since it has a "second chance" option.

      I think it's as good a strategy as any. I recently sent in 7 tickets fot the 2nd chance. I don't normally play scratchers, because I don't find most  scratcher games in California to be worth playing. Last I looked their were 13 top prizes left. I give it a shot once in a while, cause my main focus is MM, only with that game can I get the Bentley Zagato money. What I don't do any more is admit on this board how much I actually play on any game, cause I got "Beat up" on for that in the past. Do whatever, and spend whatever is right for you!! On the day that you actually hit, everyone will be your friend, and in addition, you'll be the smartest person in the world.

                                               Good luck and hang in there!!!

        Thanks Colthmn,

        I know it is alot but I am going for one big shot, and I have been saving for 3 months.  Sometime I get to increase the tickets  by  winning smaller amounts.  For instance, I will play my $5  then win  $10 or $15 and  buy more and save the original $5, that way I'm not out anything. I don't even think about playing the $1.  In my opinion, they are pathetic.  Maybe one day I'll win one of the 10 original instants that are still in play.  The last time I checked, there were 5 claimed, the last being in  Petaluma.

          Wouldn't it be great to get that letter in the mail- Dear, Mr./Ms. so-and-so, We are delighted to inform you that you have been awarded the 2nd chance................

          Imagine getting a check for $750,000.00. I wouldn't be rich, but I'd be goodn' happy!

          By the way there are still 48 $10,000.00 slots left.

                                               Ya never know!!!

            I know.  It will set me up something fierce.  I keep thinking that I will be surprised if, while I am expecting a losing ticket just to add to my pile, one day I will scratch one of the leftover instant $1 million tickets.  I'd probably pass out right there in the store!
