We were at the grocery store today and on the way out Mrs. Coin Toss gets two scratchers from the machine.
So later on after we put the groceries up we went back out to have coffee at one of those "quaint little Scottish places".
She takes her tickets out and the machine had ripped them.
Well, on one she could see that 6 was the winning number to match, and the first four numbers on her ticket were sixes. The prizes came to $20 but she wasn't sure the ticket was still good.
I told her not to worry they'd go by the bar code.
Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.
There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
