I'm starting to hateee scratch offs.

 

I mean, I was so close to winning 30 grand a couple weeks ago ( a few tickets after I stopped playing on a $2 one) but otherwise it just eats up cash.  I only lost like 600 overall throughout the year, but still.  I lost 70 dollars in one sitting, now I'm thinking eff scratch offs just because I have a tough time not buying another when I really think there's a winner coming.

 

So... yeah I'm sticking to P3, even though I know there are huge winners out there, it's just gonna eat up my money if I keep playing them.

    I know how you feel. But your only down $600. Try 6 grand and near misses for $10K and $45K !!

      Wow that does stink, and excuse me for asking but how exactly can you have a "near miss" on a scratch off?  Just wondering.

        Like if you stopped buying, or bought say 3 and the next one or two or something won a large amount.

          In my case I bought some BDB and Orange Crossword Tripler and go into the store the next day and was asked if I bought the big winners because I was playing these games the day before. I guess the lottery notifies the store once a big winner is sold so naturally the clerks become curious who bought it. Later turned out I was a few tickets away from buying both winners :(

            Oh!  Yeah I know what you mean.  Sometimes I really think there is a reason why people win the lotto.  If you hear some of the scratch off stories, most of the time they just bought one for the heck of it, not expecting to win and then BAM!  Next thing you know that person is a millionaire.  I guess you cant rush these things, If you (James1) are ever down to split a book of $20 scratchers just let me know.  I have always wanted to try it, but I dont want to destroy the bank either:)
