      I  don't  play  scratch  offs   ,  but  I  will  try  and   answer   your   questions


      If  someone  in  a  store  (  or  anywhere ) ,  has  told  you  something  (  thus the questions you asked in this  thread  and  the  other one ) that you feel is not true , find a  ticket checking  machine  on the counter   in a  retail  store in the state anywhere that sells lottery tickets ,  hold the  bar  code on the ticket under  there  ,  and check it yourself  ( and don't rely on  people  that you might not  know  to check it ( or to tell  you what it is worth )


      It   doesn't  hurt  to  scratch  off   the   prize  amount  with  your  numbers     (  as  Ridge   has  already  mentioned )


      And also you can cash a winning ticket in at any  retailer  ( in the state )  that will cash it , as   ThatScaryChick mentioned in your other  thread


      Per  your  questions  ,   be advised that they scan the bar code on the ticket to read it  , so it   doesn't matter how you have scratched it off  on  the  front , as long as the Bar Code is intact , and can be scanned


      If   you  still  have  any    doubts , keep possession of  your ticket , and  get someone you know and  trust to help you , or  contact the   State  Lottery  with any questions that  you may have ( they usually have a toll free number you  can  call ) 


      There are some scratch  off   ticket  games  out  there  these  days  worth a lot  with the top prize


      So be careful with your ticket  until  you know  for sure


      Contact   your   State  Lottery  if  you  have  any  doubts   at  all
