How long does it take you to scratch through the roll ? Do you scratch the whole ticket or just look for the codes ?

James I saw you had a $4,000 winner in another thread, would you mind telling me how much you received after taxes? In NY it says prizes of $5,000 or less are tax free if you show them your SS card just wanna see if its the same for FL

    Up to $5K is tax free but you will have to pay up to 35% income tax the following year unless you write it off. Im talking with my bookkeeper about that now.

      i  use to look for just codes but i dont do that anymore because prizes that are mor ethan 600 bucks have the same codes as losing tickets so you are forced to scratch each one off i wish it would just tell you loser or winner and how much you won .I tried 5 and ten  dollar tickets and  20 and even 30 but never 1 and 2 dollar one.I dont have good luck with any dollar amount of tickets.Please  let me win once that all i ask for lol

        I know this is the scratcher thread but I wanted to ask a question about NY Pick 10. I've never played before and decided to get a quickpick. I noticed on the website, it says "there's even a prize if none of your numbers match!" and in the odds section it says if you match "0" numbers, you get $4. How can this be? Isnt this essentially trading $1 for a free $4? Am I missing something here?

          Snag. Not sure if the Pick 10 means 10 numbers. I would think it is tougher to match 0 numbers vs 1 number. I am from PA though and do not have knowledge of the game.

            They pick 20 numbers from a field of 80.  You pick 10.  If none of your numbers match any of the 20 they've picked, you'd win 4 buccks.

             

            I'd imagine it's pretty hard to match 0, though.  You don't win for matching 1, 2, etc. (I don't know how many you need for a prize, probably 0, 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10.  Again, not sure though.

              with the pick ten you pick ten numbers from 1 to 80 and the lottery selects 20 out of 80 numbers.I had alot of tickets with 0 numbers that i just made 4 bucks.Its the hardest lottery to get so i think i might stop playing

                        First off, I would say check the top prizes report before you buy certain tickets.  Also I would also never buy in a series like that.  If the ticket won before you, there may be duds behind the ticket.  I always buy in store and go one by one never play by series like that.  Just some advice from my experience.

                          i have tried every single type of play theres always duds no matter where you go .Only way you have luck is to be  alurker in astore and play and watch and play until you hit something.

                            just wasted another 100 bucks and made back 35 bucks so lost another 65 .I think i might just be through with this.Everyday theres winners posted in the lottery websites adn its always coming from some county in upstate new york that i have never heard of and got to google.So i figured i take a drive to one of those 4 hour drive countys and but tickets there.I am so frustrated.

                              Dude jackpots come from all over NY. The way I see it, it's all about the areas income level and sales volume of a store. Lower income areas are more likely to hit the big win for life jackpots and such for obvious reasons. Also high volume stores are more likely to have big prizes as they go through rolls much faster. So if you're buying from quiet stores, I'd instead look into very busy retailers and if you're really desperate travel to some poorer areas in NYC and buy a roll or play tickets in the store. Just my two cents..
