Many people buy thousands and thousands of dollars worth of scratch off tickets a year. Out of all the money someone spends on a scratch-off ticket, how often do they win? Well a great method to winning at scratch off tickets is to definitely stay as far as you can away from $1.00 tickets. These scratchers give you just about the worst possible odds of winning. You have a 1 in 9 chance of winning each time! Who in their right mind would want to risk $9.00 for a chance to win $1.00. Not me of course, but there are many people that play $1.00 tickets like they are going out of style.
If you want to become a consistent scratch-off winner you need to play AT LEAST $2.00 tickets. Upgrading to a $2.00 ticket will increase your odds of 1 in 9 to 1 in 3. Most $2.00 tickets you buy will give you a 1:3 chance of winning each and every time. This is one of the single most important method to winning at scratch off tickets. Most people just by scratch offs without reading the odds on the back. The odds are there for you to see!
Most people also buy scratch offs without taking a look at their states lottery website. If you go to (YourStatesInitals) lottery dot com you will be able to see exactly which scratch offs have won the top prize already. Why would you want to buy scratch offs where the top prize has already been won? It happens everyday! Millions of dollars are bought each year on scratch offs where the top prize is completely gone and has already been won! Go to your states website and take a look to make sure you ONLY buy tickets where the top prize has not been won.
Now when buying scratch-off tickets, many people make the mistake of buying ENTIRE scratch-off rolls. This is a HUGE MISTAKE. Each scratch off roll costs $300.00. On average you will win HALF your money back if you are lucky. Many hardcore scratch-off players buy hundreds of scratch off rolls a year and on average only win half their money back if they are lucky. This is definitely not the best scratch off strategy. If you are going to buy scratch off rolls you might as well not play the scratch off lottery at all.
I have been playing scratch off tickets for over 20 years and have been working in a convenience store. I have seen all sorts of scratch off winners and LOSERS. I have seen people lose over $1000 in an hour! I have also seen someone win $500,000. It is all possible with scratch off tickets. Developing the right method to winning scratch off tickets is extremely important and if you find the right strategy you will start investing your money in scratchers instead of wasting your money. If you do not have a strategy you are just pouring your money away into the governments hands. I wish you the best of luck down your path to scratch off success!
