I have been buying the same 10 dollar scatcher for a couple a months now from different towns here in ct.i have noticed that my tickets from one store would be number 26,and when i purchase that same ticket from another store would be number 27 or 25. I have 14 unscratched tickets with numbers like these from purchased from different stores.coincidence or wierd.what do u think?

    I rarely buy scratchers,

    doesn't the number refer to where its placed in the rack so you can ask for it by number ?

      kyokushin187,

      Are you talking about the number on the front of the display case, like haymaker mentioned, or the number on the front of the ticket on the bottom right?

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

      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 think it's a sign.  Of what, I have no idea.  But it IS a sign.  Big Grin

                  Depends on the size of your town, how many shops are in it and who is buying the tickets.

                  Someone out there must be feeling the same way as you from your area...maybe they're getting #23 from one store and #22 or #24

                  from the next.

                  How does this sound? If you have a small shop or two, it's possible ticket #'s can sit there unpurchased depending on who likes what

                  ticket, what days they're buying them, what days you're buying them and which tickets are more popular among players.

                  I've come across some shops that just don't do well with the ticket sales: I get a ticket and say I get #105...well, next day #106 is

                  still there...that tells me no one likes that one or that they just chose something else to take a chance on.

                  Or how does this sound...maybe it is a sign to put those pairs into play in your states pick 4..2627, 2725, 2625 BananaOR maybe

                  since I'm reading this and you've got me thinking about it....I should put them into MY states pick 4 plays. Naughty

                   

                  Sh*t, just checked it out, sure enough...tonight PA pick 4 = 6522 - so much for that.

                  All is not lost, I'm game for 1425, 1426 and 1427.

                  Some good will come from this.

                  Good luck!

                    The number on the front of the ticket

                    If you mean the number usually in a white box on the bottom right of the ticket, I think that's just the number of that ticket in that particular roll. In other words, all rolls are numbered like that.

                    Maybe one of the clerks here on LP can let us know.

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