Re: Scratch off lottery tickets !!! Anyone ever buy a whole ROLL
how many are on a whole roll?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23681832


It depends on what kind you buy.$1 would have more than $10 scratch offs for instance.Some come in a stack of 50 or 100.
So states are different and the cheaper they are the more thats on a roll.I think $20 tickets are 15 per stack.$1 would be at least 100 in most states I would think.A roll of $2 locally has 150 I believe.

Re: Scratch off lottery tickets !!! Anyone ever buy a whole ROLL
When I clerked at store , would check the lottery ticket numbers and pay outs for scratch tickets. No winners on a roll for 20 odd tickets I would buy the next seven or so tickets. It put a few extra hundred in my pocket every week, fuck the customers they don't deserve shit
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1136348


Clerks or anyone who does that needs to eat shit. I believe most stores around where I live have a policy if you are working as a clerk you can't buy tickets and screw the customers that "don't deserve shit" as you say.

I had this happen before. A new ticket came out and I was on my way home from work. I like buying new tickets seems half the big stuff gets hit fairly quick. I stopped at a little grimy store by my job and told the drugged out clerk to keep the tickets coming until I win. Nobody else was in there, so what the hell. I scratched 2 with no winners and the little crackhead ripped the 3rd ticket off and slid it down the table to some homeless looking guy who may have been her pimp. He won a thousand bucks and I bitched them both out.

Clerks cheat big time. Counting between losing tickets isn't that hard. I've only hit 2 tickets back to back for more than $50 once. These days I almost have better luck from the machines they put up in grocery stores.

Another good idea is to buy your tickets and LEAVE. don't sit there letting the clerk know which ones you won on or lost with. This screws up their count and I'm all for doing anything that throws a wrench in their scam.

Take the winners to a store down the street to cash in.

Re: Scratch off lottery tickets !!! Anyone ever buy a whole ROLL
I read sometime back in Ohio that roll of $1 tickets is $500. Has a guarantee return (winners) of around $380. The big winners are scattered among the THOUSANDS of rolls. You are still playing the long odds of hitting a big one... But it can be fun! Especially at Christmas time. Everybody scratch see who wins what. You will almost always lose money playing this way.

Did it twice :) $2 rolls. Broke exact even 1st time, was down $4 at the end of the 2nd. Was a hell of a lot of fun and definitely worth the $4 lost just to do it :)

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@!@

If you buy the entire roll, you will lose money.

Unless as I'm sure you already know if you happen to hit a big prize.

But pretty much every roll pays out less than they cost.

This is true too. I worked at a store and would make at least $20 a day watching for losers and buying after a few had lost.

The best day I had was just under $200 and the biggest prize was only $50.

For the cashiers it works out great for people to scratch right there!

Re: Scratch off lottery tickets !!! Anyone ever buy a whole ROLL
Yes,in stead of spending 10-20 on a daily I save up to $200 and buy a roll of $2 which is 100 tickets. My winning fluctuate between breaking even or being up a couple of dollars. Not all clerks at store will sell them that way.yoda may the force be with you.

Re: Scratch off lottery tickets !!! Anyone ever buy a whole ROLL
Have bought a whole roll all rolls in Tennessee are $300 and lost$100 even with a$100 winner in the roll. It was on a $20 ticket. But i have hit for $500 and $2,500 but it seems to pay out more for me when buying conservatively but every time i have won$500 or more the lowest value on the scratch off was a $5 ticket. Therefore my conclusion when i win a descent prize by that i mean more than $50 it's usually when being conservative, and when i buy one maybe two tickets.

Re: Scratch off lottery tickets !!! Anyone ever buy a whole ROLL
I haven't bought a scratchy for a while but there would have to be some sort of spacing algorithm to spread the wins across evening. Could the serial number be used to track a roll in some way? For example, buy a bunch early in the week then come back hours/days later and buy more to see if it's the same roll.

Re: Scratch off lottery tickets !!! Anyone ever buy a whole ROLL
Me and the GF did it once, just to see what would happen.
Bought a roll of $2 tickets the first day they came out.
Actually made about $150 over what we paid. Supposedly you will at least break even - but I wouldn't trust those stats.

Re: Scratch off lottery tickets !!! Anyone ever buy a whole ROLL
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?

Of course not. The big winners are already millionnaires or unrecognised share holders. They just keep the scam going to make us sheeple think we can "cash-in" on their profits while they laugh their way to the bank.

Afterall the Camelot logo has 6-6-6 in it.
 Quoting: RUDDD


Yes. I know a guy who's in-laws won 22 million in our state lottery, and a guy I used to work with won a cool million on a scratcher (he blew his on toys within 2 years). A local college kid won a million last year, but I didnt know him.

That said, our state lottery has a very large number of "private entities" that win and the numbers are computer picked with no video record of the drawings - basically someone just clicks a program on their computer to choose the numbers. Plus, about 12 years ago the then-lottery commissioner stated publicly that they keep track of all numbers chosen to insure the state never pays out more than it brings in. Think about that comment for a minute....
