This hobby is downright weird.
Its similar to owning a car/cars, admiring them, taking good care of them BUT never driving any.

Who in their right mind would buy them from him for 800,000? Yipes. Only 10,000 are unscratched. I'd rather go out and spend 10,000 on new tickets and save 790,000,lol.
Right? It says in the article that most of the 10,000 unscratched are expired. You have to imagine most would be more than half, so we're looking at no more than 4,000 unscratched cards.
And you have to bet he won't say what games are left unscratched, or else you could look up online to see what amounts are left unclaimed.
This does sound like an interesting hobby though if I ever hit a jackpot. I could also pick up other state games during my road trips.

In recent years, after the death of family members, I have realized it is pointless to collect things or even buy things for other than utilitarian purposes...there will be someone after your death who will sell it and pocket the money. Someone is going to have a ton of fun after he dies. I would burn the expired ones. Couldn't stand knowing what could have been.

The people that run lotteries must love this,
me it's just another reason to not buy scratchers,
someone else may already have the big winner and not even know it.
