First of all, CONGRATULATIONS! (Funny subject line!)
You are so right! If you did not know, some states use random non-winning codes for prizes over $500. So, that could fool players who just scratch for the recognizable winning codes!
It takes humility, I agree. It's like people who go and collect aluminum cans for recycling. There's money to be made. I pick up pennies when I find them in random places. I used to be embarassed when my grandma does it, now I do it all the time.
Remember the story of the man who found a scratch ticket worth $1 million in the garbage?
Please be careful though, and dumpster dive at your own risk.
