    I hate to burst your bubble, but I've been playing scratch tickets for over 20 years (mostly in MA) and STILL have never won the top prize (though I did hit for $2,000 once on a $2 ticket with a $20K top prize).



    Not to say it's impossible (the big winners ARE out there, somewhere, after all) but just to give you a heads up that the odds are long.

      I scratched my way to 9,000 bucks. Try and buy tickets from the front of a new pack or the end of the pack.

            just wondering what tickets people were playing, 

             

            I like the ones with prizes of 10 grand or more. The lesser prizes aren't worth spending the moneyyust to win a free ticket or 5/10/20 bucks. Maryland has about 100 scratch games going and i try and get some tickets from evey new game with large payout amounts.

                Yea the store owner here did that for me twice. One time I won $20 Dashing for Dough. I don't necessarily believe in "where" the Top prize is in the pack, cos where the store/part of town that has the Top prize is another factor.
