Hi - This is my first Lottery Post.....Lurking

I live in California.  We have (over) 21,000 retailers who sell scratchers.  I often feel the 'odds' of finding a big winner, say $20K or higher, particularly daunting compared to smaller states with less retailers.  I have been playing scratchers for years and the biggest wins were 2 $100 on the new $10 game.  Ugh....guess I'll keep scratching lol!

Does anyone else feel the same way?

PS...I am jealous of the states with 5 million $ scratchers Mad

    I am in CA too and started playing scratchers a few months back. Max I have won is $30 and a "free $5 ticket' a couple of times.. I have noticed a majority of winners are located in urban cities like LA, SD and SFO. Not really sure of the odds ..

      Haha, I am in the city and there has been 3 'Million dollar tickets', but alas none of them were me :( I think it makes it worse when there is a big winner so close to home.  Just another case of being in the right place at the right time I guess.  Good luck to you *mnsweeps*
