I bought some scratchoffs earlier today and won nothing. Then I went back to buy a few more, and the cashier mentioned 'you didn't win anything on that last one?', and I said no. Then he said that I should bring it in and let him scan it. Odd. So I went back home with my 2nd batch and won something. Then I went back to get even more scratchoffs. This time I inquired about what he was talking about the 2nd time I came in and asked how he knows when it's going to be a winner. I said, 'are you counting the tickets or something?' and he said 'No, it's something else'. So I asked if he could tell me what it is, and he said he couldn't.
He happened to be wrong about it the first time since I checked the ticket that he said I was supposed to win something on about 4-5 times already. But even though he was wrong, I'm wondering what he's doing to know if a ticket will be a winner or not. I don't think he's joking either, he had a straight face and seemed sure. What on Earth is he talking about? What is it that he can't tell me? Any ideas?
