If you buy two scratchers one after the other (ie consecutive numbers from same roll) could both of them be winners? Or will the winners always be spread out such that if you scratch a winner, the next ticket (and previous ticket) are always losers? Or is it completely random such that you could theoretically have 10 winners in a row and the next 20 are losers?
Usually, winners are spread out. I've found back to back losers worse than the game odds before. For example, I've found 8 back to back losers on a $25 ticket here in Florida. The game odds are 1 in 2.88. I've also found 4-5 back to back winners on a $25 ticket before.
Usually, I'll notice it hold true to winners being spread out. This definitely isn't always the case, and there are "hot rolls" sometimes in which there may be numerous winners in a roll that pay out higher than the roll's cost. Most rolls, however, pay back about 50% and have spread out winners.
