Went to my favorite store to run my ticket yesterday.  Got in line behind an old lady who had a half gallon of milk.  Then all of a sudden she pulled a pack of scratch-offs out of her purse.  I stood there while the clerk checked about 20 scratch-off tickets at the machine and each one of them were a winner.  About 5 minutes later the clerk gave her the money then she stood there for 5 more minutes deciding what other scratch-off tickets to buy.  Eventually she bought 16 dollars worth of tickets.  If it weren't for bad luck, I wouldn't have any luck at all.  LOL

      LiveInGreenBay,

      You never know what you'll see at the lottery counter. The other day a lady went to the scratcher machine, ok so far so good, then takes her scratchers to the lotterty counter, standing right in front of the scanner so no one else could get to it - or the play slips - and starts scratching them there.

      Bang Head

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      Lep

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

        The most annoying thing to me are the people who play 15 numbers or so, pay, and then play more numbers, pay again, then get scratch-off and pay for the third time. 

        Another thing that ruffles my feathers is the store I go to has separate lines for store purchases and lottery and there is also one person who goes to the purchase line and gets a scratch-off so as not to wait for the five people ahead of him in the lottery line and the clerk gives it to him instead of telling him to get in the lottery line.

          Was the OMG for her 20 winners or for clogging up the line for 10 minutes?

           

          I go to a smaller gas station, no lines if I avoid the 5 - 6pm after work crowd.  They have a sign up that they had a 5 mil winner back in 2011.

                  I like the people who spend $50 on numbers games that print out 1 draw per ticket.

                  Show me the money!

                    I do this to prevent my winning tickets from going over the $600 mark so I  don't pay  taxes..

                    $3+k tax free untraceable ..still gets spent in my community 

                    Relax,Bigdaddy has your number!!!!!

                    Pi is the way...

                    turning $30 or less into thousands everyday!!

                          Whats so hard about entering my numbers $1.00 STR8 and .50 box. This one guy always wants to do the $1.00 STR8s first then repeat the .50 cent box next. Then he jacks up my tickets with the wrong numbers. I avoid him! I'll just go to another location.Soo annoying!!
