This is about the chintziest ticket I everplayed:

Illinois $1 Score 7's, top prize $500. Tic tac Doe format, line up three 7's anywhere.....

You also scratch to see what the prize is for that ticket...

 So we scratch and get:

7  7  4

7  2  7

9  7  8

i.e, nada....

and the prize on that ticket was:

Prize

FREE

Ticket

Gee......

    What did you Win on the Free Ticket?

    Maybe you could Play some Pick3 or Pick 4 Numbers from the TTT Box and Win something that way.

      No, no Raven, not win...the 7's didn't line up, not a winner....

      that's what I meant by chintzy, couldn't even scratch a winner when the prize was a free ticket

        I've been there too. You just got to, as the second most famous groundhog around here would say, "Keep On Scratchin'"

          That's little different (though I dislike the Free ticket thing more) than if you buy a dollar scratch off and the prize is $1.00.  You win nothing, really.  But when they say "Free ticket" they are only helping themselves, since they don't have to fork over the $1.00, and you have no option as to whether you want to take the dollar and spend it on another ticket or not. It's another way to take away your choices.
