Decided to buy 3 of the new $5 scratchers and won $40...thinking about buying 8 more with the winnings...Should I go for it or just pocket the money???

    I won $40 total....I'm really thinking about that top prize on that scratcher of $200,000. With the way NCEL rolls out these pick 3 #'s I am really not feeling the pick 3 at all....

        In my personal opinion I would say NO... Don't get hooked on Scratchers as some are.... Pocket your winnings and put it towards Pick 3 today.... But in the end the final decision is yours and yours alone. Good Luck today!!!! Big Grin

          The store where I buy my tickets are selling two to three packs of that new $200,000 card everyday since the beginning and the most anyone has won is $50.00...we must look at the odds of it all.

                What do you mean by the most anyone has won is $50.00? 2 poeple have already won $200,000 and there should be about 13 more floating out there somewhere....As I am typing this I hear the commercial on the radio for that scratcher..Maybe that is a "sign" for me.....Wink

                            I was speaking of that store.  You would think that if you sell three hundred tickets plus a day that there would be a larger prize on one of them.
