      • Ever since I quit drinking I have more pocket money available, and I was thinking of buying some of those scratch off tickets they sell at convenience stores, as i've never bought any before. But are they worth it? I don't wanna spend $40 a week just to luck into one that pay $5. So can anyone recommend a certain kind worth buying? TIA

      • Don't piss money away on that crap. Toss your coins in a jar on the shelf.

      • The return tends to less than 85 cents on the dollar.
        That;s way worse than slot machines. You be better off playing the horses or betting baseball, or maybe investing it

      • Betting horses is more fun and takes longer to lose your money.

        If they were worth it overall then the state wouldn't be selling them.

      • Certainly. You should spend every after-tax dollar on state-sponsored lotteries. You can only want win in the end.

      • Twice a week I buy a $2 scratcher. Sometimes I win. Bought one yesterday, won $25. Over the years have won everything from a free ticket to $100. Have known others to win more.

        Doubt I have broken even, but $4/week is no big deal. Just some fun.
