My wife and I started buying scratchers a few days ago just for fun, turns out they're really addictive when you're winning. I read online in a few places never to buy just one or two, so we went and bought 20 $2 scratchers from 7-11. That night we got a $50 and a $25 ticket along with a few $2 winners.
The following day I was at another 7-11 and bought 10 5X The Money and won $36. That evening my wife bought 20 5X The Money and we won $46! I've been looking for a Virginia scratchers message board but there isn't one. I've been reading these boards for a few days and have a few questions:
1. Do you normally buy scratchers that are new or about to expire? Or, do you simply go off the odds at the time? The Virginia Lott has a site that is updated daily with the tickets handed in and odds. I also look at Lotto Crawler but I'm not sure how often that is updated.
2. It seems most people here buy $20 scratchers, is this so you can at least break even if you buy 5-10 of them? Does this really work? I ask because the money prizes from $2 scratchers isn't very high.
3. I know there are more threads than one page worth, but this board only shows one page worth of threads. Why is that?
Thanks and I look forward to being part of this site!
