I think there is no definitive answer to this question. I have seen threads where people will go to a scratcher machine and buy 1 of every ticket, spending almost $100 and they walk away with double that. I have also just bought one ticket and won something significant (significant to me is more than $50). But this isn't always how it works out.
Personally, I find if I buy 3 or 4 of a single game I will at least get something back more than 50% of the time.
I would pay more attention to where you are buying your tickets and what denominations. I have won a lot at stores where there is a high turnover of customers and not a lot of time to linger around and scratch (chasing winners). My favorite denomination of tickets are $2's and $5's. For some reason $3 tickets just suck to me. Only won $75 once at most and i've bought a ton. $1's are a little too low for my taste and $10's a bit too high. Then again if I had the money i'd probably buy more expensive scratchers.
In conclusion, the amount you buy is only part of the deal. Focus on strategy in all areas of gambling
