the winning numbers and your numbers in sequential order? If one of the winning numbers is 18, then your number is 19. They do it to tease you. Ah, I almost win!
The way I look at it, the entire play area of scratch games is just a clever ruse. You aren't really *playing* anything. The ticket is a loser or a winner with a prize amount. All the tricks of adjacent numbers, reversed numbers, losing amounts, almost matches, multiple matches, etc. is just them playing psychological mind games on you for the purpose of addiction.
To me, the *real* act of playing scratchers is the selection of store/day/time and which game to play and how much to buy. Please spare me all the number matching and crossword bingo mumbo jumbo stuff. I prefer quick symbol matching games instead. Or you could just as well give me a ticket with one spot to scratch, that has win or lose and the amount.
