Also, not sure how Pennsylvania does it, but in Illinois, if you try to redeem a winner of over $400 I believe, you have to fill out a special tax form and pay taxes on your winnings.

Re: Scratch off lottery tickets !!! Anyone ever buy a whole ROLL
My peeve with these money wasters....

If the grand prize goes off, they continue selling them until they are sold out. You buy them in the hope of winning big money and your odds are zero. You don't get informed if the big prize has been won. You have a better chance playing the lotto.

This is my understanding of them, please correct me if I'm wrong.

Re: Scratch off lottery tickets !!! Anyone ever buy a whole ROLL
when you play the scratch offs or any ticket, don't play because you need the money but because you want to have fun losing while you play. this way you have a good chance at winning since you are not going to rely on the winning. it doesn't mean you are throwing money away because you are not. playing the lotto is like fishing, we all buy the bate, spent hrs in the river or lake and in the end we go home empty or full of fish; considering we have a license to fish. everything in life is an expense and if you don't play we don't have a chance to win. good luck to all who play and god bless those who don't spend their money on lotto tickets, for those who don't play the lotto, should really invest Idol1with God, he does pay much more all the time.

A guy was convicted here recently of robbing a full reel of these tickets. About 200 tickets or so. All he got was 104 euro in total. They are a scam here also.

Unless you hit the grand prize ticket...you will probably get back 85% of your investment.

Similar to Vegas...they must pay out a certain percentage.

In NYS, if all the grand prize tickets have been won, they pull the rest of the tickets. Could be different in other states.

You never actually win HUGE on the lottery. Its a taxation scam, think about it. Do you know anyone (after all these years) relative, friend, who is a friend, cousin, uncle etc of anyone who's won "big" in terms of millions?

Re: Scratch off lottery tickets !!! Anyone ever buy a whole ROLL
No one else ever try this?
 Quoting: Dr.Green Thumb


We sell lottery tickets at our store and it's a regular thing to sell whole packs.

One guy bought 5 packs of $10 tickets once. $1500.
He only made a few dollars over what he spent, though, so be careful.

Most of the time you can break about even depending on the game, but like someone else posted, the usual payout is about half the cost of a pack.
You've really got to hit at least a $500 winner to come out ahead.

Maybe wait til new games are released. Here, it's the first Tuesday of the month and they'll usually have more winners in order to get people to buy them---for a couple of weeks anyway.

Good luck!

Anyone ever buy a whole roll of these? If so did you break even, lose money or gain money?

I was thinking of trying it with a brand that has a lot of winners left in it.

Was wondering your opinions and if anyone has ever tried it!

Thanks@!@
 Quoting: Dr.Green Thumb


blinker About 15 years ago I won $50 on a California scratch card. So I bought 50 tickets, then another 10 or so, then some more a few times. Basically till I ran out of winners from my $50 win.

So I finished up with maybe 75+ tickets for $1. Obviously I didn't win the big one.

Re: Scratch off lottery tickets !!! Anyone ever buy a whole ROLL
We used to buy a roll for the office. Everybody would kick in. It was $250 for the roll. Whatever % you put in, you got to scratch that many tickets.

The winning went towards another roll. All three time, we won between $50-65. We never hit anything over $10 on any ticket. Just hoping for a $100 one time!!!

Re: Scratch off lottery tickets !!! Anyone ever buy a whole ROLL
Me and a buddy of mine bought an entire roll of Winner Take All $20 tickets and 30 on a roll totaling $600.00, $300.00 each. We got back $295.00 out of the $600.00 so it was a big loss of $152.50 each. But buying a roll does increase your odds because instead of terms of a "ticket" your playing in terms of rolls and there is a lot less rolls than tickets conceptually. The 50k winner might be in that roll or a $500.00 which would give you almost all your money back.

I once bought 65 tickets left in a roll. I came out 6 dollars ahead. A co-worker used to work in a store. He would keep up with the rolls and if there was no winner for the day he would buy the roll. He always won.

I did this a few years back.I bought a roll of $2 tickets as a Xmas present for my SO.It was a lot of fun and he scratched tickets at his leisure over the holiday.Dont recall exactly how much he won but if I recall correctly he did win more than I paid but not a whole lot more.I know another person that did this and didnt get back as much as they spent.So I guess its just luck for the most part.But it does make a fun gift.
