Any one else feel the top ten scratch-offs cards pay better?

I play consistently the first ten cards in a new roll.....however some retailers start a new roll back to front with 000 starting the new roll...then i wait and play the seller up the street.   I think at times I frustrate clerks, but if they refuse ...i don't buy....and seemily a lot of people ask!   Buying rolls is too costly---becauser I only play  $10---$20 dollar tickets.   Moreover, the return is @ 1/3 the face value unless you get lucky!

 

 ...A typical buy is .....i walk into a carryout and their on ticket number 004 for a prise-packed ticket (reviewed online) I purchased 005----thru---010 then.   Costs me $120-bucks, but the return can be three-fold.   If I hit less than $120 on 3-consective buys----I lay off a few weeks, and re-think my ticket strategy.  The scratch-off play is hit or miss----win 1k---stop play for at least a month....typical win is 1k---20k per 100,000 tickets----so pass on every 4000 sold!

    Im a bit confused by this: "I think at times I frustrate clerks, but if they refuse ...i don't buy"

     

    Are you saying, if they arent on beginning of the book (000) you decide not to buy and they get frustrated? Or are you saying no matter what # ticket they are on, you want them to sell you 000-009? For example, if they count down from 049-000, and are currently on 021. Do you ask the clerk for tickets 000-009?
