I have 22 winning scratch tickets that I havent checked yet.  How much do you think I won in total? 

 

$5 tickets - 14 winners (top prize - 2,000,000)

$10 tickets - 8 winners (top prize - 1,000,000)

 

How do I know they're winners?  I input the numbers into the lottery replay website and it tells me if they are winners or not.  I kill two birds with one stone this way.  I input losing tickets and find out if I have winners or not at the same time.

    I would guess you have $130 in $5 winners

    And $120 in $10 winners.

        Okay, I have a couple of points of interest here. You say you have (22) winners between both ranges of tickets, right? Now, in order for you to have that many winners in your possession, you'd have to have been collecting them over a period time and just saving them after you checked them. That's a lot of checking and saving. For only (1) individual to have that many winning tickets seems a bit unusual to me to be very honest...but not impossible. 

        There's a definite caveat to your numbers as well. To have that many winners, just how many have you purchased, total, at those prices? While you're focusing only on the top prizes, there is most likely lots of smaller prizes in that bunch of tickets...and you should be really, really hoping to at least break even at this point. Granted, I hope you do have a top prize in the mix but, I'm just being realistic while still hopeful for you. 

        Lastly, instead of asking how much we think you've won, you should've already scratched 'em and had a detailed report ready for the LP Soothsayers. Sure, the anticipation is very exciting but, what are you waiting for? You have a lot of money on the line in terms of only expenses right now. I'd be more excited knowing that I got all my money back and actually had a couple of hundred or so in profit...that's exciting to me. I hope you beat the odds, buddy...and best of luck!!!Thumbs Up

            I've learned to never focus on the losing tickets.....if you do you're bound to get discourged.  But you're right, I collect the winning tickets until I feel the time is right to check them and thats usually when I have 10 winning $10 tickets.  Sometimes I can reach that number quickly and most of the time not so quickly.  At this rate I should have 10 winning $10 tickets by this evening and I will check them and post the results tomorrow. 

             

            I think the total will be around $3mil......

                Okay, this sounds more like it. Now, I hope you've kept all your losing tickets so that you can SUBTRACT those AFTER you've compiled all the winning totals. This will be either your NET PROFIT, or, your NET LOSSES. Hopefully, you'll be in the GREEN even if it's only $5 (example only). You have my blessings!!!

                  I don't collect winning tickets like you do LOA, but I do make use of my states lottery replay website, to insure nothing of value is being tossed.

                  Over the past few years I caught about $200 in tickets I thought were losers. Good technique!

                    I'm not familiar with the replay deal but, it seems like a very good and SAFE idea. So far, I haven't seen anyone post on whether or not it displays the PRIZE AMOUNT so I suppose it doesn't. This would be a SAFE   feature to use in the event of discovering a LARGE PRIZE because only the player knows as opposed to some crooked clerk and other possible customers.

                    A player can never have to many back up plans or RESOURCES. I use all my resources to my advantage.

                      It doesn't display any information about prize amounts.  This is simply a way the state allows you to enter losing tickets towards some smaller chump

                      change prizes. I personally could give a (bleep) about these cheesy prizes, it's just a way the state allows you to see if you've entered an invalid

                      ticket. (a winning ticket cannot be entered). If the ticket # is not accepted it will display "invalid ticket". This to me is music to my ears because

                      what it really means, is that you have a WINNING TICKET!!!    Banana

                          Oh, I see now. If it's already a loser, it qualifies for a second chance of sorts. If a winner, it's INVALID because it's already accounted for in terms of payout. Pretty cool feature...and thanks!! I learned something today which is what I try to do everyday.

                              The shavings SUCK! Perhaps one day this will all be unnecessary, and we can just mind-meld the results.  Conehead
