Howdy! I have been playing $5-$10/week in Lotto tickets here in IL for past year or so...mostly Lotto and Mega although I will
buy $5 tickets for Little Lotto if/when it goes over $200K. Recently, I started to play the $2 "$1,000/week for life" scratch-offs
and I do like the instant gratification. Here's my strategy: I buy 5x tickets. I used to just buy 1 at a time but the last couple of
times I have gotten 5 tickets, at least 2 or 3 have been winning tickets. Here's my dilemma: Both times, I made my $10 back, no more,
no less. One ticket had a whole bunch of "winners" but only $1 or $2 prizes...Grrr. Would you veteran "scratchers" recommend I fold for the day
after I recoup my money (and try again somewhere else/next day) or keep playing til $10 is gone?
