During your visit to the store, how many scratch tickets do you typically buy?

1: If I buy at all, it's just 1 [ 3 ]  [10.34%]
2-3: I typically just get a few [ 13 ]  [44.83%]
4-10: I'll buy a bunch at a time [ 11 ]  [37.93%]
11-24: I chase wins, could be many more or less [ 1 ]  [3.45%]
25-300: I often buy entire rolls/packs or partials [ 0 ]  [0.00%]
>300: (Joan Ginther territory) [ 1 ]  [3.45%]
0: I only play from winnings of discarded tickets [ 0 ]  [0.00%]

Everyone probably varies their buying pattern from time to time, and people play in different games and ticket denominations, but in general, what kind of buyer are you?

I'm #3 mostly.

    I play regularly but due to limited budget, I usually only buy 1 at a time but occasionally I buy more.

      Sometimes I just play till I hit a big winner or sometimes just buy around 10 and go

        None, they suck in the UK. Wouldn't mind buying one of those 10 Pound cards with the top prize of 4 million maybe. But I would rather buy 5 Euromillions.

        2016 Won/Lost

        EuroMillions / Spent: £22 / Won £0 / Total -£22

        UK Lotto / Spent: £4 / Won: £0 / Total: -£4

        2016 Total: -£24

        Jan: -£22 Feb: £0 ~ Mar: £0 ~ April: £0 ~ May: £0 ~ June: £0 ~ July: £2

         

        EuroMillions = £2 Line / Played: x11 [old price] 

        EuroMillions = £2.50 Line / Played: x0

        UK Lotto = £2 Line / Played x2

          I should have clarified, this poll is intended for people that play scratch tickets. Didn't want any strictly draw/lotto players coming over and saying how they never play scratch tickets, so I didn't put a category for that. But if you say they suck, you must have played at least 1 at some point in order to form an opinion of them, so you could select 1 as your answer.

          Incidentally, I'd be curious to see scratch tickets from other countries like UK, just to see what they look like compared to ours in the US.

                I voted 4 - 10. It depends how much money I have on me..of course the ATM is
                so nicely located RIGHT BESIDE the IVM but I don't like to do that because if I
                don't win off the first, I don't like playing the next. I do like to buy 1 each of the
                $20's and usually that's 4 in the machine if they are all stocked. I won't touch
                any if they 'doubled up' which more and more places are doing. (same ticket in
                different slots...STUPID)
                If I'm not feeling the $20's I'll go for the $10's or $5's.

                I could buy up to 8 of the $5's because usually the machine is stocked with 4/$5's.
                The counter is a WHOLE 'nother story....ticket wonderland.

                I like getting 5 at a time $2's and 10 at a time $1's when selection is crappy.
                Othewise I'll put in $60 or $80 and punch selections til it's used up...doesn't go
                far with $20's though but I can usually snag a $100 at my fav place, turn that in
                and play some lower denominations.

                246 ~~ 485 ~~ 369 ~~ 890 ~~ 705 ~~ 357 ~~ 129 ~~ 165 ~  007 ~ 225 ~ 818 ~ 440 ~  7775 5557
