The Final Jeopardy answer for today is...

[cue up Final Jeopardy clue "pop up" sound]

By spending $10 slow playing tickets, hitting nothing but duds so far, and having a lady buy 2 of the same kind while you're slow playing and walking out, and you taking another $2 to buy ticket #55, the next ticket in line, you'll have this.

[insert Jeopardy think music]

If you have the question "What is a $48 winner?", you'd be correct. Big Grin

The tobacco mart didn't have the new $1 Triple Win tickets, so I started off my slow playing with the new tickets that they did have....the $2 Aces & 8s.  I had bought my 5th one (having not won a thing off the 1st ones) when a lady came in, bought a carton of smokes, and asked what I was playing.  I showed her and we chatted for a few seconds....and I mentioned that I had won $50 last week from this very tobacco mart.  She looked at the ticket I was playing again and then asked the cashier for 2 of them.  I then scratched mine off as she was walking out of the store.  It was another dud, so I pulled out 2 $1 bills and asked for another one.  I scratched off the prizes (after scratching the validation numbers at the bottom first) and noticed an unusual pattern of prizes.  I saw 2 $1s on previous tickets thinking I had a winner when it actually wasn't.  However.....I saw 4 $10s on the ticket and had a very good feeling.  I scratched off the stuff above the prizes and discovered the 8s above the 2 $10s in the top row and immediately said out loud to myself "I've got a $48 winner!".....and I was right after scratching off the bottom row of stuff.

I still had some dough left in my wallet, so, after eating lunch, I went to a package store on the way back home.  I saw that they had both of the new tickets, so I bought some of each.  I spent $13 and bought 4 of the Aces & 8s and bought 5 of the $1 Triple Win tickets.  I included the only winners from that bunch in this picture.......and it was a very nice winner indeed on the $1 Triple Win. Smile

I never thought I'd hit 2 very nice winners within a couple of hours of each other like I did today with the $48 and $21 winners.

My my.....this is 2 Saturdays in a row that I've hit some big ones.

Until next time, may you hit some nice winners for some nice moolah. Big Smile

Entry #73

I don't know how in the world you keep doing this!! I play quite a few scratchers (usually right after I lose in the Pick-3), and I only win once in a very long while. Maybe you should put up a tutorial in the scratchers forum!!

I couldn't really come up with a tutorial.......because I don't really use any kind of system to play scratchers. I either start out with the newest games or go with whatever I feel like playing or go with a gut instinct......just like with that $5 $500,000 Riches $50 winner.......those tickets caught my eye and I hadn't played those in a long time, so I decided to slow play them. Sometimes I'll start with a game that's given me good luck in the past.....sometimes I'll start off with a game that I've never won much off of in the past. To be honest....had I not hit that $48 winner on that Aces & 8s and I had hit a cash winner.......the $5 $500,000 Hold 'Em Poker tickets might have been what I played next (being that I haven't played them in a while and I did hit $30 on one before).
