Is it a good idea to buy a whole roll of scratch off tickets with office poll? Considering that the odds of winning anything with scratch off are much better than draw tickets, it might be worth considering.

      If you're going to it, be careful how you distribute the tickets. I, personally, think the fairest way to do it is distribute them the same way you would a deck of cards. For example, if you're splitting the roll with five people, the 1st person would gets ticket #1, #6, #11, etc,. When I buy a whole roll of scratch offs, typically the large winners are lumped together and then there's a big string of losing tickets in a row, so it wouldn't be advantegous for someone to take the first or last ten tickets, or however many people would be involved. Just my opinion and experience with whole rolls. Best of luck if you decide to purchase it.

          No.

          The $10 tickets cost 500 dollars per roll (50 tickets per roll).
          The $5 tickets cost 400 dollars per roll (80 tickets per roll).
          The $3 tickets cost 300 dollars per roll (100 tickets per roll).
          The $2 tickets cost 200 dollars per roll (100 tickets per roll).
          The $1 tickets cost 250 dollars per roll (250 tickets per roll).

            Ok. In AZ they have the distributors package everything for $300. so the $20. game 15 tix. the $10. has 30 tix and so on and so on. I only play the $20. tix when I play scratch. (not often)

              How many people in the pool?  Will everybody have to be in the same room when the scratching happens, etc...? Don't allow anyone to throw tickets away, rip them, etc... Every ticket should be scanned and have the terminal validation--win or lose--on file, just in case.....I  mean, it seems like a pretty cool idea---fun.... I guess my Scorpio tendencies are to not trust anyone, though! Ha!!!!!

                Do the machines print them in rolls nowadays? Used to be 100 tix per pack and they were flat and unpacked.

                  Judging from pictures posted by members who bought the whole rolls, they are flat and in shrink wrap like a new deck of cards purchased from a store.

                    Agree, I personally don't like the packaging by an "independent distributor" ...........
