Came home on leave and splurged with a couple friends. We bought 3 books of the $10 Taxes Paid. Each package had 50 Tickets = $500 for each book.

The total was $1500 dollars. The year before I bought 3 Books of Set For Life, no major wins there either.

1st = $280

2nd = $320

3rd = $300

    The Reality Is: All Lottery Games are designed to take in more money than they payout, but sometimes people get Lucky and Win more than they Spend...

    Have Fun & Good Luck!

      I'd re-invest the $900 plus a bit more to buy a couple more books.  What are you gonna do?

          We already spend $1000 Monthly on Lotto, this was just something on the side.

            Getting back $900 on $1500 or 60% is pretty much expected with $10 scratch offs unless you hit a big winner.

            Better luck next time chasing the dream!
