    One scratch can change your life. For example, one store clerk who scratched 10,000 a week for life.  He is only 22 so if he lives till 100 years, that is about $40 million.

        It might be worthless to you, but not to others.

          I Agree!

          I win more on scratchers than I have recently on the the regular lottery.  I have even reduced my playing dollar so I can offset the amount.  If it is my time to win the regular lottery, I will win with 1 ticket or 20.

          I recently won $100 on a scratcher just by purchasing the one that I normally buy.  Unless the scratchers are fixed, I personally think the odds are much better.  Besides you can actually check the website to see what tickets have the better odds, which tickets have what amounts leftover and what tickets have the better cash amounts.  So you already have a better up than regular lottery.  Besides, there is a rush, the scratchers not only have an expiration period  but the bigger amounts get cashed in. By the end of the game only the small amounts are left.

            I enjoy scratchers myself, many times paying for myscratchers & numbers - & other times just losing my $20. It's kind oflike playing slots instead of blackjack or blackjack instead of harness racing.The game just runs a little faster, on the other hand I guess you could beplaying scratch bingo and it take like 5 minutes to scratch all the numbers.Different Strokes for Different folks - I suspect... I had a gentleman walk upto me one time and told me to play the number 16 ticket on a certain kind of scratcheronly if the 16 was preceded by an even number. Sure enough every time I wouldfind one I would buy it and it would hit - I think the highest I ever hit was$50, but it just got my curiosity about the numbers on the tickets & reallyabout how many that guy must have scratched before he found this little nuance.

              The reason some people like scratch tickets and others don't is quite simple.  Everybody is different and the lottery recognizes this and offers different products for different people.  Usually with scratchers you have lower prizes, but better odds of winning a bigger prize.  Also they sometimes offer trips of other things; such as, we have a scratcher where one of the prizes is a trip to American Idol, not something I'd go for, but for somebody else it is perfect.   I actually don't buy scratch tickets, but my aunt loves to.  She likes to be able to see immediately if she has won a prize whereas I love to watch the balls being drawn.  So just because you might think it is a waste of time, other people don't and you need to have respect for others.  (Sorry I've seen some of your other posts and they seem quite incendiary and written to pick a fight and keep it flaming.)  Again, that might just be your writing style and I'm not used to it, but we should all have respect for everyone here and allow for all of our differences.  Wink

                    People DO win 10 grand a week for life.Lotterys can't advertise that a ticket has a certain prize if it doesn't.Once all of those advertised prizes are all claimed,they pull the game so that people don't buy anymore thinking they will win the grand prize.

                     

                    This thread couldn't have been closed a month ago because it wasn't started until 10 days ago.

                          I would love to win 10 grand a week for life. They have that scratch-off game going right now where I live, but I can't justify spending 10 bucks a pop at the moment. Although, it is awful tempting.

                            1st-I can't possibly know the names of every person that has won a major prize in a lottery.But believe me when I tell you that people do win huge prizes on scratch off tickets.The states can't offer a prize unless that prize is available to be won.

                            2nd-I don't know what the hell an aggregator is.A pissed off alligator,maybe?

                            3rd-I don't attack anyone.I do point out on occasion that someone is mistaken with their facts and attempt to explain where I think they are mistaken.

                            4th-I happen to agree with some of these people.
