Will you be giving lottery tickets to anyone for Christmas?

To whom?

What kind?

How many?

Yada, yada, yada...

        My wife buys a bunch of scratchers for my stocking. The only time she ever buys tickets.

          Maybe in the $1 - $10 range.

          Since most of them turn oyt to be losers I think when it's $20 or more people would rather have the cash.

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          Lep

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

            I get them for the ladies I play cards with,  we all buy 10 dollars worth for each person, and we all end up with 50 dollars worth of scratchers.

            A ten dollar limit in not bad for a gift.  I never give Jackpots or raffles to anyone.

                Hey suri,

                You're so thoughtful, dude. Maybe you could give them as presents after you scratch them.

                Just tell them it's the thought that counts.Thumbs Up

                    That's better than a pair of socks and a new tie anyday.

                      Yep, 20 bucks is better than 20 bucks worth of losing tickets. But then, they scratched them hoping to win and they might have.

                      Maybe you could give the option, cash or tickets. And then, if they take the cash, it would be cool to call them later and say you won a thousand dollars on 'em, lol.

                              I wouldn't mind giving the Holiday losers away...they can enter them into the Holiday second chance drawing. Big Grin

                              I'd never give lottery tickets - imagine living with the thought of giving away a cool Million due to a burst of holiday spirit.
