Jackpot!

I'm not a lucky person, I don't win things, I really don't. I was feeling lucky this afternoon though and bought two scratchcards, coming to €3. Scratched the first one - nothing. Scratched the second - €8! I'd made a €5 profit! When's the last time you won something on a scratchcard? Have you ever won money on a scratchcard?

I would be happy too. I never win much more than another ticket. When they first passed the lottery here a few years ago, I did give it a good try. There were people, and still are, that win $10 a ticket, sometimes more. I have never won like that and eventually I just quit playing the scratch offs. I get one every now and again. I guess you can't win if you don't play though.

That's it, I used to buy 'em regularly myself, but every time I ended up winning another scratchcard there was nothing on it and I never won any money. Maybe if you don't push your luck and build up a bit of good karma you can win every once in a while!

I never bought one directly :p. But I ever got similar scratched card thingy from a beverage product. Every one of that product contain one "scratchcard" and we may win several kind of prizes. My best winning was only Rp500 or worth less than $0.05

Last weekend I won $8 on a scratcher which was the last one I won't. This weekend we didn't win anything on any of the scratcher that we got. Some times I win free tickets but I have never won anything over $10 yet.

I don't remember ever buying one or winning one, but I do remember how my mom was so into this things. My mother's has high luck, or should I call her lucky, because be it scratch cards or raffles, she just constantly won prizes in almost every one of them.

I know a few people that are like that, always winning little bits here and there with various competitions and draws. The luck didn't rub off on you then?

Sometimes, I believe it did but so far nothing yet. Probably because I haven't tried much yet. I don't really bother taking chances as well, because I am one that disappoints easily.

There are many times that I have bought Scratch Tickets. There were times when a lot of extra money I used to have went to these. Many times it has been 0, and I have been disappointed, but I have won a Leather Coat, money and other prizes from one where I had to claim it on Taxes even. It was nice. Have also hit a couple of them with $100 or other prizes but I am sure I have probably spent more than I have ever won.

Bet you enjoyed winning :) Well, you probably have spent more than you've won, like most people, but a lot spend it and never win, so count your lucky stars

wow, that's very lucky of you since you have not won anything before this. I myself have tried a lot of scratch and win stuff in the past. however, i have not won much. the best thing i've got would be another packet of drinks. there is another close call where i almost won a playstation 2. i spent quite some money in that one and still failed to get it.

Heya fergus - a fellow Paddy? So you made a loss of €6... Pity. Which of the scratchcards do you get? It was the All Cash Gold I bough the other day, and the €1 one that I won on. €50?! That's class lol.

Oooh, that's awesome! I don't play scratch offs THAT OFTEN (we call them scratch-offs here, but they are the same thing I would imagine), but when I do, I usually lose unfortunately. . But one time I bought $2 (USD) and won $10. I have won in the past, but not really anything lately. My brother in law just bought a $5 scratch off last week and ended up winning $50! But he's lucky and tends to win everything he tries for. (Grrr). Congrats on the profit (just make sure you don't throw it all back into the scratch offs - take your profit and run with it!!) Happy MyLotting!

I do win once in a while....never too much but a little makes up for what I spent. I save them up and use them to fill up on gas or when I need milk or bread.....nice to have that extra once in a while.
