Default Have you ever won on a scratch ticket?

Im just wondering if anyone has ever won anything on a scratch ticket. I know, very random

And dont say yes if you won $1.

Yeah, the most I have won is $100...I don't buy them very much though. Not much of a gambler.

Nope. I try to buy things that are a guaranteed "good" purchase.

I won a decent amount of money from a slot machine at an Indian (Native American) Casino earlier this year... I'm usually at a poker table playing in tournaments... I had just lost and was waiting for a few friends who were still playing.. so I sat down at a slot machine (which I would never otherwise do) and walked away with a hell of a lot more money than first place at the poker tournament! As for the lottery and scratchers, I think $5 is the most I have won.

I won lots of dollars on scratch offs. I find buying the five dollar scratch offs more rewarding. Once I bought 3 five dollar scratch offs and 2 of the 3 tickets I won 25 bucks each. With that I bought 3 more and won a total of 125 bucks, only spending 15 dollars so I profited 110 bucks. I've had 5 dollar tickets that I have won 50 bucks. Bought a 10 dollar scratch off once and won 40 bucks. I don't buy dollar ones anymore, think the most I ever won on one was 11 dollars.
If you like to buy scratch offs, you're better off buying the new games that come out, you'll win more cause they're trying to suck you in to buy them so when they first come out, you have a better chance on winning.
