oops I did it again. i spent more than i planned and failed to use any strategy, just impulse buying, with terrible results.
yesterday evening I went to one of my locations I'll call location #1 a drugstore vending machine with a hi ticket turnover. The machine goes throught a 20$ pack of 30 tickets every 3 days while location #2 of the same drugstore will take 2 months to sell a 30 ticket pack. I purchased two extreme green #13 and #12 both losers. then I bought two max million #6 and #7 both losers. the odd thing is the max tickets were counting up while most vending machines dispense scratchers from the back of the pack so 29,28,27...., Oh yeah I also got 11 power 5 tickets 000-then a new pack 79-69 only won 10$ on #000; free ticket on #075; and 5$ on #071.
In hindsight it would have been a better strategy to buy deeper into the power 5 pack in hopes of offsetting my loses with a 50 or 100 dollar winner.
