I've considered buying a book, but never got the nerve! However,  I do like to purchase 4 or 5 $5 tickets, that usually works for me. In TX the $5 Hot Hand scratch off has been treating me good. I usually win $50 to $100, but on the low end I'll win $15.

So, I would suggest buying about 5 tickets to test the pack first. At least with $5 tickets. Also, you want to check the stats of the particular game, you don't want to spend your money on a game with only a few winners left.

    I guess I went to the wrong store, I only won $5, paid for 4 tickets ($20). Bash

      Here in Illinois,i also would have to spend 300$ to buy whole pack (1$ scratch).Its very risky.
      for 300$ i could have 300 -1 $ stright/box for pick 4 for example.
