They ain't supposed to be sending the winning tickets to certain areas but sometimes it sure seems that way. You'd think that every once in a while you'd see an old stumpjumper from my part of the state win something big but it don't happen hardly ever. It's always them dang city slickers.

You know here in the city we feel the exact opposite...the money is always in the country!

    Just curious about how often everyone plays instant scratch off games?  Do you play a set dollar amount every day or week?  or do you play only when you feel lucky?

    I've seen some other responses in this forum about people buying an entire role of tickets or large bunches of tickets....has anyone had success doing this?

    I'm trying to understand how everyone plays, what works and what doesn't.

    DaveH3, This woman Plays...O...Nothing....Nada......Why??!!!  Ok, lets see.... I see a bunch of them

    all over the counters of Magazine Stands,

    on the side walks like confetti, 

    on Park Benches...

    stuck in the side of the seats of the Sub-way train.... all over the sub-way steps....

    and I say to myself... Scratch off's is not a wonderful world!!!

    very discouraging???!!

    forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

    Now, does it count??

      I dont have a set amount per week, but it probably averages to about 3 or 4$ a week.

      Ive been trying to do more like Cutlassbob says: go with the cash 3 or cash 4 games as the odds are better (though at first I figured it wasnt worth the 500 or 5000 payout but it beats seeing the dang words TICKET when you finally do 'win' on a scratcher).

      Generally I stick with the $1 or $2 games. I have played them all, up to and including the $20 games and it comes down to how many tickets I would rather buy.

      And it does feel very nice to hit 20 or 35 on a $1 ticket. Too few and far between though. And 35 is the most I have won on a $1 -- hoping to findout soon what 500 or more feels like :)

      Yeah i have been seeing the word ticket on TN scratchers a lot to. It's either that or nothing at all.

      My advice don't play Tn scratchers at all. They suck really bad.

        The state lotteries should have to pay the bill for cleaning them up.

            I like to play, but I'm careful not to overdo. The state puts a lot of losers in there, so I'm not going to feed them too much. It seems my Big Winner Spectacular luck is over. Three losers today. Even though I got 3 $100s in two days and some $10 and $15 winners, I'll take a break if I lose again tomorrow.
