If you had $10 to spend would you buy one $10 ticket, two $5 tickets, five $2 tickets or ten $1 tickets. I don't play scratch offs that often, but wondered if  some players have a preference how they play these. Thanks

    I would go with one $10 ticket. Honestly, I usually play the $20 games, but I've hit $500 a few times off ten dollar games. I've hit a hundred on a $5 game, but never anything more than that. It's a toss-up, and it's always a gamble anyway.....but I think I'd go with a ten dollar game.

        If I haven't won in a while, I would get 5 $2 tickets, or 10 $1 tickets if it has been really bad. Normally, I would get 2 $5 tickets. I've actually had more $100 wins on $2 tickets than $5 tickets, though. Only 2 $100 wins on $5 tickets in 4 years of play.

          I agree with the poster above about 5 $2 dollar tickets. I look at the odds for tickets and notice that most $2 dollar tickets are about 1 in 4. Granted you could get five tickets that lose, but the odds of one of those five being a winner are good. What I really like about $2 dollar games is that most of rolls that I have played on have a hot zone. If you hit it right you could have very nice results. I've seen a $50, $30, and a $25 all within five tickets of each other.
