I tell everybody that I know to tell their Scratchin Friends and Family also...Don't get Conned.

A Person can alway send their Kinfolks or Friends that live in Another State Money to send them Scratchers from that State.

My Cousin has sent Me some Nice Winners from Florida and I'm in the Green like Crazy. LOL

    Can't agree enough. I stopped. Besides being bad games, I have noticed number fixing going on. #012 on $5 tickets here have lost way too many times just to be a coindicence. Really can't trust this lottery.

      Yes, I don't buy them very much anymore either..I used to chase a win..but that got old when you were spending $50 to win $5.

      My mother in law spent over $100 on tickets to tuck in people's Christmas cards, she just told me yesterday that not one person she sent them to won anything.  I know she bought 8 of the $5 Christmas ones in a row and no one won anything some $10 and $2 ones she bought also and nothing.. I didn't buy any to put in people's cards this year..the first year I didn't..they just lost their fun anymore.

      PA Lottery is only hurting themselves..there are a LOT of people who stopped playing.  The store that I used to buy my tickets from, stopped selling lottery anymore.

      Did the lottery really think that people wouldn't catch on to how much they changed them.  You have to buy at least 7 to 10 tickets in a row now to even win anything..it never used to be that way, and the pay outs are pathetic. 

      Just wondering if anyone else on here in PA are having any better luck in the past year or so with scratchers..???

        No luck here. I did the same this year with scratch offs. Instead of tickets I got people Millionaire Raffle tickets. At least they have better odds and could be the Christmas gift that gives back 2 weeks later. Told my store owner to not get offended, but he will be seeing alot less of me next year. I will play some of the news ones next week to try them, but after that I am cutting WWAAAYYY back. I am thinking the privatization will only make them worse.

          Wish I could say my luck was good, but it is worse than ever. My best most recently was $50 on the Trim the Tree and $40 on the $ game, but with a ton of losers. Well, with PA tickets how they are, will be needing a new hobby.

            Saw in person two days ago a $100,000 winner on a $5 Big Money, in Belle Vernon PA. Was amazing. Just a straight up $100,000 win by matching a number. Wasn't mine and I'd never buy that one anyways. I did buy a roll of $2 Pac Man a few years ago and I won $1000 two in a row. Spent $300 won $2000.

             

            Anything really is possible.

              But think of the odds of that happening. I am better off quitting the way they have been than to waste so much money to get such a low odds win.

                  Congrats, it is not easy to get $100 anymore. Even small wins are rarer. Good to see a couple wins listed here even though it won't change how much I play.

                          Hi Matt, good to see you.  Try them in the first few days they are out. The 2 week thing, I've found, does not apply anymore

                          in PA..No Nod

                          Good luck!

                              WTG mduffy!! I got a scarf the other day too. It was a hundred dollar ticket too...lots of $5 and $10 matches. I was so

                              happy to find that symbol - that one was hard to find. Lots of hats lol.

                              Good job and good luck!
