An interesting observation I came upon recently reading the forums. It involves winning tickets having strange marks around the edges of the ticket, usually a small black line "_" or a "L" shape. The I looked at my 2 tickets that I have on hand. A Monopoly $25 winner and Lucky for Life $200 winner. Both have strange marks on them.

LFL has a black line at the front top right corner and 2 black lines at the top back corners. Monopoly has 1 line on the back top right corner.

2014 Highest Winner: $500

    James you just talked me into buying some scratchers.

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

        James - I usually look for those marks also, however Ive had plenty of losers which had marks on them also...

         

        My most recent $1,000 winner had the marks on the $2 Mil Casino action game. Also had a mark in he bottom-middle also. So an L on each side plus a _ in the middle.

         

        I believe those marks are actually the guides which the laser cutters use to cut the tickets. But I still usually buy the ones with the marks If I see them =)

          Many of the tickers in PA have some kind of marks. I do notice the double L and _ win more often, but other that that, I've lost on many tickets with marks.

            All my winners today had strange marks, but I noticed some losers had them too, but not as many.
