    I wouldn't say a word now I might ask a clerk for a printout of remaining top prizes just incase the other player does not know this is an option.

      I Agree! and I can picture one of these experts mistakenly telling a player all the jackpot winning tickets were sold and watch the next person in line win the the jackpot.

          Patriot I think I actually did that once. Told a fellow scratcher not to buy that ticket then absent-mindedly forgetting what I just said, bought one and won big. I felt so guilty with the win. I promised myself not to do it again.

            Keep Quiet.  Lots of smaller prizes left.

              I'd tell him there were no more big winners and then before he left I'd loudly tell the clerk to give me the ticket he was going to buy and I'd scratch it real fast and then start jumpin' up and down and screamin' and yellin' and doin' cartwheels and backflips all the way to my truck (well, maybe not the backflips).

                To tell the truth, no one should have to tell the next guy/gal anything when it comes to something like this. Every person should be doing their own diligence with checking their respective state websites and keeping tabs on the number of remaining winning tickets, and, their prize amounts. This is like a strategy in that you'll have an idea of what you'll win in the event of winning.

                Hoping to maybe scratch off a grand not knowing that all of those tickets have been claimed already is poor lottery etiquette.
