What do you guys think about a $.50 scratch off?  Most Tennesseans buy a $1 scratch off because it's a minimum bet.  If you go done even further you can buy more tickets.  I think a $.50 scratch off would be cool.  If there was a $.50 ticket here in TN I would expect this:

Overall odds 1:5.5.  Prizes range from a Ticket ($.50)-($500).

How are you going to win if you don't play?

    I think a  $.50 scratch off. Would be a good idea and a bad idea because in some states it would go over good but then some states I don't think it would go in some states like here in Illinois I don't think it would go over very good because the Higher price tickets like the $20.00 tickets are really in demand right now. But  they might good over in other states. Plus another bad thing about a $.50 scratch off you talking 600 tickets a book that is a lot of scratching for people who buys a book of tickets.  Where on $20.00 tickets you have only 15 tickets to scratch off.

      I like to go scratch happy.  My mom sometimes buys 100 $1 scratch offs simply because she likes to scratch.  Me myself and I can't do that because I don't have $100 to spend.  (College you know).

        FL offered a $0.50 scratch around Christmas of one year. It was very simple, just two numbers, if they match, you win the prize shown.

          I think it would be cool.  I know KY offers 50 cent pull tabs.  I wonder if TN will ever offer pulltabs.  (Probably not because GA don't have them).
