Hi dr65,

Congratulations on those wins! When I use to play scratchers the most I won was 200 dollars. It seems you do well all the time on scratchers? Do you spend a lot to get your wins? The last 6 months before I stopped playing scratchers I would buy one ticket and if I won would leave the store and if I lost would buy one more and leave that way I could keep my spending in check. I never had any luck with scratchers.

Hi shyguitar, I do spend a lot - I'll start with a $100 and see what that does because I figure if I won it it's
not something I had anyway so it's reinvested I say. I like to get a feel for what type of ticket day it is and
sometimes it's the $20's or $10's or $5's. It seems to not fail, if I can see which one is winning I have to
stick with that one at different places. I don't know why it works that way. I know not everyone has a $100
to throw at scratchers but there are loads of times where I won on 1 outs. I go to roughly 3 to 5 places and
usually am taking some money won from somewhere else to each one.
Your method of buying one and then one more if a loser or leaving if it won is a good one. I've seen so many
people out there playing up their winnings AND LOSING at one place. There's an oriental guy who goes in to
one place and just plays and plays and plays THERE.....wrong! Bouncing around to good stores works for me
so I keep doing it. I can find lots of $100's and $200's and $500's...some $1,000's in there but when I have
the money from other wins, it's easier to catch them.
I have a lot of money from this past week and it just allows me to play more without using my 'own' money.
There are times when I can do more than win ticket price, that's a way to keep going but of course I like
to see $500 and up, that's a big boost.
Please, if you have decided to quit, keep it that way or if you are playing just here and there keep it that way.
I think that chasing anything is wrong and just doomsday for most people....I see lots out there who buy 5
or more $20 tickets at a time and that is INSANITY.
Once and done and I know probably some people don't like when I say that but it works. It of course does
not work everywhere I go but going to more stores and trying it has been a great method for me.
I'm not an authority on anything, it's just I play and have played a lot of tickets...but try to keep things in
check and realize just what the odds are...they STINK. Winning small amounts happens but the biggies
are hard to find...
in a printing of 6-7 million tickets, there are 4-5 top prizes, that SUCKS.
I'll never see the reasoning behind playing out a whole bin of tickets looking for a top prize...out of
100's of retailers, who is to say it's in that bin? (I know who is to say it's NOT..but really...)

I'll leave it at this...If I win $500 it allows me to play with win money, that's saving my own money.
I can just play more in that case and of course wins pile up so it's always raising the balance and
keeping it going in the black.

Best advice play one and done and stick to your guns! Too many people spend too much at one place
or one day and it's totally counterproductive....to say the least. I've seen a lot of sick players and MAD
players too. Sometimes it's sad.

    Hi dr65,

     Thanks so much for replying to me. I usually get no response when I have ask people who play scratchers if they spend a lot to get their wins. You really do have the golden touch since you win so much. When I use to chase scratchers, most of the time I lost or just broke even. I'm so much happier having myself on a budget and being realistic about my odds of ever winning a jackpot. Like yourself I do not understand why some people will buy so many tickets in a row, most of the time they get nothing or still be in the hole with what they won. Playing at 3 to 5 stores as you said is good. You mentioned a printing of 6 to 7 million tickets for just 4 to 5 are top prizes. In my state of Mass.on a 5 dollar ticket there will be a printing of 25 million tickets and just 6 people can win the jackpot of 1 million (if you take the lump sum you start with 650,00 or something like that. After taxes are taken out you are left with 400,000 so no million). It's very rare for me to play a scratch ticket anymore, I tend to play the draw games (with even worse odds, lol). So often I will hear of someone winning the jackpot who rarely plays the lottery and will hear of people who spend thousands yearly and win nothing. The best way to play the lottery is not to let the lottery take all your money and to play wisely. I spend so much less now on the lottery and feel so much better about it. I will not give up playing because I want to keep myself in the game. Good luck with your wins.

      This is good advice. Play one, and if it is not a winner, stop and wait for another day. Chasing wins almost never works. I won $100k a few months back buying one $20 ticket...all it takes is one.

        Hi Duckman,

        Wow congrats on your 100k win. I've never seen anyone win that amount on a scratch ticket.  You did it buying just the one ticket that's the way to do it. Had you won big before?

            Great advice Dr65!  I play at several stores as well.  I played 4 yesterday and ended up with 2 $500 winners and a couple $100 wins.  I do need to adopt the not losing too much at one store though.  Sometimes I can lose a $100 or more and get frustrated.  Go to another store and win on 1 or 2 tickets so you are so right on that!  Good luck all!

              Found a $1000 winner in MA on the $20 40th Anniversary ticket! Had a match for $200 and 40X with a $20 underneath. Almost threw it away since I didn't see the 40X at first for some reason! Nice way to start the holidays :D. Congrats to all the other recent winners as well!

                Wow congrats on your 100k win. I've never seen anyone win that amount on a scratch ticket.  You did it buying just the one ticket that's the way to do it. Had you won big before?

                That is the largest win I have had. Other than that, $500 a few times over the years.

                      Here is the $500 $5 Crossword ticket....it was 6 words on the bottom game and that wins $100 but I

                      got the PEPPER multiplier which made the prize 5 x the amount won. yay!

                       

                      The 6 words were scratched off making the yellow background, white. The pay legend is a bit blurry but

                      you can see the $100 prize amount and on top of it is 6 words. The pepper was in the word SCRIBBLE.

                            Nice wins everyone. I been playing alittle heavier this week. short story is I convinced work I was way underpaid and got a nice yearly increase.  Figured I would celebrate and get a few extra tickets instead of my 1 here or there. I didn't go through them all yet. I was detoured and hit a different wawa tonight. Got a $30 ticket, which I never win on. Well I got a 5X@$40 +$50 for a $250 win. Earlier today , I also got $100 on the $10 7's, which I of course put back in.. Nice wins DR65 and everyone else that is playing. I am ready for the Million!!!
