Has anyone played this new scratcher? At $10, it's out of my price range, but it seems way too complicated.



Now, I play the lottery pretty regularly. And I play Hold 'Em every week or two with my friends. But when I pulled one out of the wastebasket, I had to study it for 10 minutes to confirm that it was, in fact, a loser. (I'm a spatial-relations kind of person, and seeing the tiny printed cards on the ticket, it took a while to spot things like a full house or a flush that I'd normally see in the blink of an eye.) I can't imagine what it's like for people who don't know whether three of a kind beats two pair.



I was in the Boston lottery office the day after it came out, (I won $1900 in Cash Winfall!) and there was a steady stream of people who thought they'd won big money. There was one real $100 winner, but no one else was even close. Lots of miffed people, I gotta say. I know I'm checking the wastebaskets for the next few months.

    Stick to Ca$h WinFall. TX Hold Em is annuity-only.

      For my birthday, everyone and their brother got me this scratch ticket. I had scratched 17 of them by the end of the night. I only got $70.

      It is VERY hard to determine if you've won... and I play poker all the time. I had to have people keep checking my tickets because I wasn't sure.

      The good thing is that it's more entertaining then a regular scratch ticket because it takes you ten minutes to figure out if you've won. LOL.

      Also, I've never lost so many games of poker until I played those tickets.

          Maybe it should be Massachusetts Hold 'Em.

           

          Check the State Lottery Report Card

            That's what I like, a scratch ticket that takes 10 minutes or more to play.

                Yeah, Massachusetts Hold 'Em. Why play over BBQ when you can play over chowdah!
