nope I'm definately not a big spender...I typically only get $2 to $10 worth of scratchers at a time.
I've got $60 to cash in...don't know if I'll stretch it out or immediately dump it all into more tickets. the machine ran out of the $1 tickets I was lucky with, and the $2 scratcher I was testin doh!
another thing I like doin is to focus on one type of scratcher for a while...note the serial numbers, when they get into 00X, I know that the machine will run out soon, and I've had good winners in low number tickets before...so I'll buy out a favorite game and hope to get lucky
anyway, pick3 is still the best for payouts vs. odds...haven't hit a major scratcher prize yet...but I'll keep tryin scratchers every now & then.
