With my luck, I would not win anything even on that ticket ;)

    Hi Coal Thumb,

    Yes, that is a great point. I am slowly losing my desire to play for awhile.

    Hubby & I took a break from the scratchers whenever we use to go to TX we would grab a few but the past year we just been multi-drawing the state games. Before we go down there I usually check the website for new tickets. But I will definitely stay away from this one. Thanks for the info Cher46.

      You are welcome! These tickets are really horrible. I have bought quite a few and just keep getting $5 and $10. The store owners are even mad with this one. LOL

            hmm...

             

            It is a $20 ticket?

             

            That honestly doesn't sound that bad. I agree it would be a better holiday ticket, probably. Still, getting some type of return will probably keep people purchasing those tickets.

              The one time these would be a good idea is for holiday themed tickets. When you give them as a gift, at least the person getting them would win something...

              Back when I worked at a grocery store(mid 90's), we had these in PA. It was a $25 Christmas ticket which had a guaranteed $5 return,. Not bad for a holiday since you can give as gifts and guarantee they actually win something.

                I guess you all are right about giving these for gifts. That is a good idea. I just won't hold my breath that I will find a big winner with these.
