We play some, and occasionally you can see small scratches on the tickets, I've always wondered if they had a magnifying glass in hand to get a quick look for tells myself.

But it makes since, if you came into my store let's say and bought 10 tickets and won nothing, well there is a good chance a winner would be coming within the next few tickets, because usually most pay some kind of reward like in a 1 in 8 shot, each ticket in California will tell you the odds to win anything (another ticket), and the odds to win a cash prize.

The most we ever won was 40 bucks on a single dollar ticket.

I turned myself to consider wisdom and madness and folly

Yet I myself perceived
That the same event happens to them all.

And it never happens to where you win like 4 out of 5 tickets either, you can pretty much guarantee some sort of payback if you bought let's say 20 tickets, and most likely if you bought 10.

If you wait till you see someone get hosed, you'd know precisely when to buy them.

I have to say I'm not much of a gambler. I haven't bought a scratch ticket in probably 10 years blink.gif

I've had some good times and some bad times like most who gamble, and some odd time.

Probably the oddest time is I was up like 100 bucks so decided to play a 100 blackjack hand for the hell of it, and won. Then I ended up playing 100 dollar hands for several hours, could never seem to get to up a thousand or lose my initial 100 bucks. After playing awhile I figured I'd try to get to 1,000.

You get instant drinks when you bet that much I'll tell you. I must of sat there over 4 hours and ended up leaving with the same 100 dollar chip I started with and some change from drink tips.

Lucky at cards, unlucky in love I comfort myself thinking.

I once won the lottery. I was a poor student and picked a lucky 6 out of 7 numbers. That would usually render you with a really nice sum of money, but unfortunately I shared my lucky numbers with an unusually large amount of people so I ended up with some 2,500 Finnish marks, which was still a nice lump of money considering I was broke at the time.

I've known a few others that have won some nice jackpots, still waiting for my first.

They can stand behind the counters of their stores all morning day and night next to thousands of potential winning scratch tickets a surely irresistible temptation and so then all they have to do is scan the barcodes upon the back of those tickets and without even scratching them off a "double beep sound" will alert them to a twenty dollar or higher winner and then they just tear off those and buy them for themselves and leave most of the losers for everyone else to purchase in hopelessly oblivious vain...
