hello all i am relatively new to this site and i have some questions.  so i have been playing some scratchers in virginia where i live, mostly 1 and 2 dollar ones like blackjack and win for life and such.  but i came across a 20 dollar scratcher called the 1 million cash spectacular in virginia.  no there are 3 top prizes left.  well the other night i played some 1 and 2 dollar scratchers and won like 60 bucks all together off of like 4 scratchers...pretty lucky so i thought i would try a 20 dollar one tonight.  well i bought one and bam won 20 bucks.  got another one and won 20 bucks again. then i got another and won nothing.   now i notice that they are about to run out of them.  is this the time that i should be buying a lil more ?  i heard that the big winners are towards the end of the  roll and such.  when i get my federal return tomorrow i am thinking about buying 2 of them.   be this a wise decision, 40 bucks for 2 scratchers?  thanks

    My advice to you is to look at the back of the ticket and look at the information about the odds of winning in that game. It usually reads as follows: 1 in 3.68

    If the numbers are around or below 1 in 3.50, it's a good bet. The best are around 1 in 2.89 which many of your higher priced tickets will be between the 2.90-3.70.

    Welcome to the site and good luck with the scratch-offs.

      yeah at the bottom of the ticket it says "chances of winning any prize is 1:2.92" or close to that. so if i bought 3 tickets, i would probably have a better chance of winning something right...2.92.

        I find the info on the Odd's ratio to be very misleading for instance a $3 Super Bingo has the odds of the 2.89 crapola and the $1 Bingo has the odd's of 3.14 or somthing but the $1 Bingo seems to give me way more winners then the SUper Bingo 3 buck ticket that says less odd's how the hell does that make sense.  My mom one time bought  around 6 or 7 Super bingo's and won on two of them thats all .

         

        Whats with the Odd's info? It seems miss leading alot
