I saw in another thread that Texas has a 50 dollar scratch off and was wondering who has bought one? Any big winners? There are several big prizes of 5 million and one million. I am debating on buying for the heck of it but its a lot of money.

    I've bought 3 tickets and no big win yet. The first time I won my money back ($50), the second time I didn't win anything, and the third time I won $70. I generally don't buy scratch offs over $10, so it's definitely a rush when trying $50, but to be honest I have more fun playing a $5 or $10 bingo scratch off.

      There was a constable who won $2000 on the game. I was so mad because I thought about buying one the night he won. Oh well!

        I don't mean to criticize anyone here, but to those who have purchased this ticket already:

         ARE YOU GUYS NUTS!?

        That's $50 spent on ONE ticket, and if you lose, you have to explain that you lost $50 on a single bet.  And to think there are people out there who will purchase multiple tickets.  What if they don't win any of their money back.  These high-priced games are only there to intice people into spending a ton of money all at once.  It really isn't worth it because you have a slight chance of winning bigger because the ticket price is bigger.  It's like the slot machines.  I'd rather invest $50 into something more worth it, or more $1 powerball tickets.

          I don't consider the lottery to be an investment, but a form of entertainment.

          Yes there are people who probably shouldn't even be playing a $1 ticket let alone a $50 one, but who's problem is that?

            I have a policy, I don't explain my gambling losses to anyone and I don't expect anyone else to explain their gambling losses to me. 

            Maybe if I had a hard working spouse supporting me or a family too young to support themselves depending on me I would feel differently.

            Buying lotteries tickets may be a waste of money, but I see people happily wasting their money on booze and cigarettes just as much and no one says a thing.
