I have a friend who always brags about his scratch wins, but when I ask him how much he spends, he gives me the run around. So I got tired of running around.

I Agree!

 

 

Most  gamblers  will   tell  you  what  they  win..............but  never  what  they   lose

 

 

As   far   as   scratch   offs   ,   I   never   play   them

    The penny you use to scratch off your ticket is usually all you are left with. Say NO to scratchers!

      Good advice

      Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

        I only scratch things that itch.

        And those things that itch have to be mine.

          Hm.  Is it better to buy a whole pack, or just a few off a lot of different packs?   there is a guaranteed prize amount in each pack, usually about half the face value, with a chance of course of winning the jackpot or higher tier prizes.

            Actually, the last couple years the value of a pack is usually less than half the cost of the roll. It used to be half, but the odds have gotten worse. I rarely play scratchers although I did buy a $5 Red Diamond 7 today. Loser.

            Funny because scratchers are huge sellers in Texas. I just don't get into them like the online games. I guess I'm not into the instant gratification. I like to dream about hitting big on the draw games coming up. LOL.

              Just so you guys know... this is what I heard from actual gas station owner so take it with you. 

               

              All lottery merchants (especially the retailers), will get commissions for selling lottery tickets and there is a pertangage for each of them (depending on geography location, population and human traffic). Usually the big winner scratches will not be delivered to places with lots of transactions; meaning they would want to sell more and payout less in these specific locations. The winning tickets although randomly distributed, they do have location preferences.

              something to share along, this may not be 100% but if it comes from the actual owner(s) I believe him.

              I do not trust the scratcher games, at all.

              playing what can be afforded...spend half of what was reclaimed.

                You never get your return on investment with scratchoffs

                I remember one day I walked into the store and put down 100 bucks and won 650.00 which was the exception because most of the time you get nothing but losers

                This give you a false sense of security as you think that there are more winners out there when in reality the day you won you just had a very lucky day

                I don't even mess with the scratchoffs any more as they just let you down
