i drive about 175 miles to norfolk and virginia beach and go to several 7 11s and other stores to buy 1 20 dollar scratchcard from each store and i put them away to scratch at another time. so far i have 18 of them stashed away. i take my vacation from work in late may and i'll probably play a little there as well but not too much. when we come back from vacation in early june i'll wait a few days and rest from all the driving and then make a trip back to norfolk and virginia beach and get about 10 more 20 dollar scratch cards and of course it will be the same game . the top prize in the game i'm playing is 2.000.000 and there are three of them in play and no one has ever hit. the game started in october of 2012 and i figure if lightings gonna strike it will only take one card that's why i go all over the eastern part of virginia to play and also virginia beach is a known hot spot for scatchers. i've worked for the same company for seventeen years and during tax time we have a little extra to play with. people at work think i have a problem but i don't spend everything we have on tickets and we have plenty of the things we need and honestly i do love to play because anytime i can afford to spend 20 dollars for any chance to win 2 million dollars i'm there. play onRant

        Cool story, but "All Time Favorite" ? Don't know about that. lol They were good but not the best in my opinion. Typical 80's and 90's hair band with a slight lead in my type of creative taste. 

        I met Lynch too. All the band members were there. Lynch was practicing on a song for the next album, and Don was auditioning models for the upcoming music video. It was so sureal to me.

            You bought 18 tickets? You "won" $60. Go ahead and scratch them. 

            hahaha Ronnie316. I don't think I am ever getting on that "bus" again. The scratch ticket bus.

                    Wait.... How can you be a "winner" if you went to 18 stores and spent $360. and got back $335.?

                        yes i went back and got 18 more again and won 695 dollars.  i originally posted that i won 675 but i went through the cards a second time and found another twenty dollar winner making it 695 instead. i was very happy.  my wife and i will be leaving  on the 24th of may for vacation in ocala and orlando fla and maybe a couple of weeks after that we will make more trips up to a couple of hot spots up north for our treasure hunt again. 695 is nice but thats far from what i'm looking for. the top prize is 2,000.000 .                                       take care and thanks for the replySee Ya!
