      So - you get a commission to do one of these rooms... your patron gives you 70k$ for tickets... when you scratch them and find a 10M$ winner... do you tell the patron or just keep it for yourself and buy another ticket?

        Great question. As long as you can document you spent the full amount of the money on tickets, it does not bar you from buying your own as well. You also would not be reasonably expected to use a winning ticket in your project and not cash it in.

          They could have done it without spending any money on lottery tickets. Ask other people to give you their loser tickets or search for them in the garbage cans outside convenience stores.

            I wonder if they scanned all these "loser" tickets before they glued them to the wall?  Just to make sure.

              Watch the video. They didn't buy all those tickets. Don't think they bought any tickets. And people didn't give unscratched tickets. They find scratched tickets in trash cans, on the ground.

              Actually put them to a good use instead of just them just being thrown away.
