$40 every five minutes doesn't sound that bad, though I'll agree it sounds time consuming.
Probably the scratchers actually do take more time. I don't know how much a person could make on that.... might scratch what? A hundred tickets in 5 minutes? Maybe every hundred or so tickets has a winner of some sort, probably most for a buck.
A 12 hour day of scratching those things probably wouldn't net more than a few hundred bucks for 11,000 bucks worth of tickets.
But it would pass the time, as you've indicated. Maybe that would be some project for a big jackpot winner, buying rolls of tickets and scratching them dawn until dusk to keep himself from doing anything stupid with the jackpot money.
Absorb the good, ignore the bad, weigh the ugly.
It's about number behavior.
Egos don't count.
