Hello Guys, 

I am new to this forum , recently started playing scratchers and hence found this forum when i was searching around. I play the CA scratches and have been playing extreme green , have put in close to around 250 and got like 65$ back , why the f*** are the odds so bad on this one or is my luck that bad ? Also i checked the website and looks like still lot of prizes left and also I dont see much activity on CA scratchers here , is there any reason why ? Are the odds that bad that people play it less and less ?

 

Thanks for your time guys. I am new here and if this has been discussed before please guide me to the same. Not sure of the right place to post this .

    Dont feel Bad. Back in December I bought 3 entire Books fo the CA 3oth Anniversary.

    Each book was $900 = 2700.  The biggest winner I had was a $400 Tick.

    These Games generally need to have a Positive $$$ flow or they would be BK

          That's just how it is, there are more losing tickets than winning ones.  The winning tickets are padded up with a lot more losing ones.  Always only spend what you can afford to lose.

            I also bought 3 Books of Gold Rush and 1 Max a Million.

            Never had any BIG winners. U have to be at the right place-time to get the 1 HITTER QUITTER.

            MY wife was like, U need to slow down. hahaha

            I also have a Lotto Group and we have been playing for over 4 years.

            We play 8 times a month and never hit anything Major, sometimes its like Dammmmmmmmmmm

              Really? 4 whole books of tickets and you didn't hit anything decent? That sucks!

                  i guess it boils down to being at right place at right time. . . doesnt matter if you spend 500 or 20 $ per week, if it was your time you would eventually win. Better results today though , bought one from yesterdays winning, turned out to be a 100

                    You hit a $100 win? Nice job man!

                    You're right about the right place at the right time... if plan on playing for the long haul then that's the way to go.... keep it fun.
