I purchased a Colored Money scratch off ticket yesterday. It must have fallen out of my bag, and I found it sitting in the grass this morning. Off course last night was watering night and the sprinklers caused the ticket to get soaked.

I have it in the sun drying now, but I am worried that the scratch off placed will just tear through.

Any one have any suggestions? Thank you :)

      Looks like I won't be able to scratch off the spots with the numbers that need to be matched, but I was able to get off the majority of the code at the bottom of the ticket. Anyone know if they need to be able to the winning spots or is the code enough?

        TE, there are some people that only scratch the barcode, so you can got to a store and use the self check scanner to see if the ticket is a winner....do not give the ticket to the clerk scan it yourself.....

              Not sure about your state, but back when PA still used the 3 digit pin #, I worked at a store. There use to be a long # for example "7854(5)8694"  . That would have been a $5 winner. however if people scratched too hard over the 3 digit pin, I always knew the pin # was in the longer # in some form. It might have been backwards, but I could generally guess the pin to get the people the winnings.For example it might have been 496.  Today PA uses the 2D barcode and that is all that is needed. Good luck in getting enough of it scratched to verify a winner or not.  I agree with the above. Use a self check scanner if they have one or goto a place you trust and know well.

                Just curious, do they have self check scanners for scratchers in your state? Here in FL, we must hand the ticket over to clerk to check. Our self check scanners only work for online games like PowerBall & Lotto

                    Gotcha...I really wish we had them here. Would make things much easier. Sometimes I just want to double check my tickets before I toss them and would save alot of time

                      I know what you mean, I like the fact that when I hand that ticket over I know I won ex=amount of money. I hate those stores that check the tickets for you but they have so much clutter around the register you can't see the amount....
