2 questions, do you like to buy from machine or if they are still selling the scratch offs at the counter, do you choose to buy them there? If you buy from machine and there are two of the same exact scratch off side by side how do you choose? Thanks. GL everyone

    Usually hit the machines only because the tickets are hard to see in some of the bins,especially when they put them in the back. Don't think about the other question. I let the clerk choose.

      Thanks for the reply Redstang. Being a newbie on this site isn't easy.

        I buy one of each if side by side in a machine. My overall wins are better from machines but I have never won more than $100 out of one.

          Definitely go with the machine. At least you know clerks aren't keeping track of losing tickets. If there are two of the same side by side I choose the left one, only because I'm left-handed I figure it is luckier for me.

            I am left handed also. I usually go with the counter at the place next to work, but he will keep my imformed of any good hits. I dont mind the older machines. I always feel with the new, cash your own tickets ,machines that people could easily buy and scratch barcode and rescan til they are happy with the results. This leaving more duds for everyone else.
