The only chance of being ahead over a reasonable period of time (eg, a period of time of say 1 year plus of consistent play) will be if you hit a 50k+ prize.  And even with a 50k or 100k win, there are some who would not still not be ahead; depends on the frequency/density/price tier of a particular scratcher, and also how long the person has been playing obviously, when/if a big prize like that is hit.

    Sounds about right. 

     

    So, why do you scratch then? Is it the enjoyment, and the elusive hope of hitting it big? 

     

    Even though I know it is a "losing bet", I still find it fun to play scratch tickets. I think there could be worse addictions out there. Our losses from scratching goes toward education, such as the Florida Bright Futures scholarship.

      Yep I'd say most of us (at least me) are playing for a big one.  I believe as long as you play within your means and not over do it (eg not using your mortgage money etc), why not take a shot.  Plus yeah there is a certain enjoyment.. However if you are a compulsive type, that enjoyment can become addictive, so it can be important to try to take emotion / enjoyment out of it.  These are just generalizations of course.  In general though I think it's important not to let the scratch-off thing overtake you, or become too much of a focus, especially if it has the potential to break you financially.

        Last week I was winning on everything and this week I been bent over by Florida Lottery. Is it just that last week I got crazy lucky or do you think the tickets where super hot. I think the tickets get really hot in my area then go super cold. Also anybody going to play the new $25 game today? I usually do good after a week being out I know the Florida cash ticket was on fire when it just came out hope it's the same for this new one.

            Bought four of the new $25 tickets, one loser, two $25 winners one $30 winner.  Odds appear to be darn near exact to the 10,000,000 FL cash game

                    Played the new $10M FORTUNE scratcher today - the amount and type of wins I got is exactly like FlCash - got a couple $100's - nothing higher and the format is just like playing FlCash - the only benefit I can see is there are a lot of top prizes to win compared to what's left on FlCash - I found the new game boring. 

                    Got an email today from Lottery - my fortune says I should play the new game today !   LOL

                     

                    What do you guys think ?

                    wins: $10,000 Jubilee - $5,000 $200MS - 31 $1k's - 185 $500's - 5 $400's

                        I checked both Publix stores and the Winn Dixie by my office but none have it yet.

                          don't get too excited - it's a copycat of FlCash - you'd think the lottery would come out with something a little more interesting.

                          wins: $10,000 Jubilee - $5,000 $200MS - 31 $1k's - 185 $500's - 5 $400's

                            Hey Skeptic, haven't seen you on in a while. How are you? 

                             

                            Yeah, that's what I noticed. The odds are almost exactly the same as FL Cash, except slightly worse $1000 odds I think. Same types of prizes, and same number. 

                             

                            With 12 $1 million dollar prizes left on FL Cash, I'm thinking of sticking to FL Cash and maybe buying a few of the new tickets.I know there's alot of new prizes on the $10m Jackpot, but I'm thinking there's also alot more duds to go through unless the Lotto wants a certain number of big tickets to be found when a new ticket is released.

                             

                            The $10 Flamingo Multiplier still has 8/8 jackpots, and $10 Holiday Cash still 2/2....

                             

                            Also, the Lucky 200k A Year For Life seems to have had no updates. Is anyone playing that game? I've bought like 10 of those tickets, but only won on like 2 of them.
