Sweet  Congrats!

I can just imagine the feeling of seeing that amount slowly materializing underneath the latex coating!  At first you don't believe it then, wow!  When I finally won $100 I was dancing around in the store.  I can't imagine the feeling of $10k or even $1k.  Have you ever won the smaller  amounts say $500 or $1000 since then?

not since then,but before that I hit 500.00 on the first scratch off i ever bought. haven't stopped since the..lolI couldn't believe it when I seen that large amount either it was $2,500 4 times on the ticket, i must have read that ticket 15 times before i realized i really did win. i left work early that day!!Wink

    Sweet congrats indeed, gypsy!

    My hubby is the only one who buys them and he always scratches them there at the store.  I wish he would come home to do them though, because we wind up spending hours there sometimes because he'll keep getting small wins and is trying to go for the big win.  Haven't hit any big ones yet though.

    Thank you spy153, i wish you all the luck, hope soon you will have a big hit!!Smile

          I usually scratch them off at home.  Don't laugh now but I have my own little routine I do and it goes like this.  On the way home from my part-time job, (I work 10 til 2pm) I stop by the store or stop by the local lottery headquarters here in town (I get a kick out of seeing the big winners come in) anyway I buy my tickets and come home and get my glass of iced tea and my scrapers, turn on the TV and sit back and scratch, scratch, scratch........there's something about having to have the glass of tea while scratching....lol

          Now if I do slip up and scratch one at the store, then I'm hooked and have to scratch another and another so I try to just walk on out.  Also I tend to buy more that way especially if I don't win but hey that's because I didn't have the "positive attitude" about winning that day.

              store! i don't want to have to drive back out and redeem my money if I win. I have started to always cash in at grocery stores. They have the money, unlike mom and pop gas stations

                I mostly scratch mine in the car at the store.

                If you see a car at a store in north GA rockin' back and forth, don't worry, it's just me jumping up and down after hitting a nice winner. Big Smile

                  I think its best to scratch away from the store (outside)because as you receive the loser off each roll there is a chance the next ticket could be a winner,in places where there is alot of action I've seen the vultures buy in to try a catch. Just today I bought 2 tickets twenty
                  dollars and saved them until later', I got ticket #2 and#24 of a roll of 25. the clerk should have given me #2and #3 0r #24 and #23 I want buy there agan.most of the time 1 of 5 in seq. on the higher price tickets are winners.  AM I WRONG
