this month i decided that if i won $100 before the end of the month i would deposit it in savings. i did that. then i decided that if i won another $100 before the end of the month i would do something different - i've not played any tickets over $5 since i usually don't have enough to be able to get more than one or two.

i'm at $97 as of today so if/when i hit my 2nd $100 i'm thinking of going for the $10 games. does anyone have a suggested strategy for doing this? should i get 10 games all in a row. or maybe 2-3 in several different places? of maybe i should go for a bunch of $5's?

i'm trying to keep this fun.

    WELL,  I like the $5's idea....you will get 20 tickets!

    to keep it fun I would buy them at diffrent places diffrent games..

    then I would keep the winning;s for more savings :)

      Hi, goalgrl,

      Definitely would go for the 2-3 of a $10 ticket in each place. Gives you better odds of making a profit. I wouldn't rule out buying 10 $10 tickets in a row, but that would be a rare thing for me.

      I've never had a lot of luck on $5 games, so I'm more inclined towards the $10. I've won $100 on $2, $10, and $20 tickets but never on a $5. But if you've done well on $5 games, stick with them.

        thanks. i tend to win more on the $2's and $3's and occasionally splurge on a $5, which sometimes pays, but mostly doesn't.

        i'm just looking for a way to mix this up and make it more interesting.

          If you have patience and time its actually very easy to PROFIT from scratchers. 

          Easiest way of doing this ? Poaching

          Buy the same game another player just lost on 5 times in a row. Sure its stooping low but it works.

            it is rare that i see anyone actually scratching in the stores i go to so it would be hard to lurk, andi dont have time to stick around and wait for them :-)

              Hi,goalgrl

              Here in California the highest ticket sold is $5 I go back and forth from $3-5 that works for me.
