When you buy a scratch-off ticket, do you scratch right away or do you wait at least 24 hours before scratching it - dreaming what it could be?

      Depends on how lucky I feel that day. Some days I like to dream how to spend the $$$ then other days I want to win quickly. One of these days I tell ya, one of these days.

        I always see people here in the UK scratch them in the store on the lottery stands, but the owners get annoyed because of all the latex haha. If I played scratchers  I would take them home, I would probably buy the crossword or the bingo ones as they take longer to do and more enjoyable.

            Hi redhot7,

            It really varies for me. I usually would buy scratch tickets and wait a week or more to scratch them, that was a way for me to buy less tickets. Each day after work would tell myself that I have scratch tickets at home so don't need to spend anymore money that day buying any.  The last few months I've occasionally been buying one ticket and scratching it immediately. That way if it was a winner would stop from buying another one of them due to the fact that it's very rare for me to have two tickets in a row that are winners. In terms of my buying scratch tickets and waiting for a week or more to scratch, it is what you said about the dream and what could be. There is no worse dissapointment than the anticipation of a win, only to find no wins on a scratcher.

              I usually wait at least 24hrs... helps to stem the bleeding so to speak.  Also, I don't want to be "that guy" feverishly scratching at the register, totally oblivious to the line of folks patiently waiting in line behind trying to buy their goods Skeptical

                  Since we only play in Texas we scratch there that way if we win can cash them in instead of waiting till the next time we go back.

                    Maybe the topic should be " Where do you like to scratch", LOL

                      I buy 6 to 8 one and two dollar ones during the week and then my husband and I scratch them on the weekend.    We take turns like we are opening Christmas presents.  LOL.

                            No vacation but I spent $13 this week on scratch offs and we had a $15 winner and a $4 one.   We are going to buy ten $1 ones, one $5 and two $2 ones.   I will post later this weekend how it turned out.  Usually the second round we get zilch.

                              I bought 12 tickets all different ones from the same store.   All of them were losers.   Very disappointing.   Oh well....there is always next weekend.
