This is the best piece of advice I have for anyone who enjoys playing scratch offs:
Open an account with Yotta. You get free tickets for a $10,000,000 grand prize just for having a balance. They draw every day. Use promo code "SCRATCH" and get 100 free bonus tickets.
You'll also be supporting this site, which is costly to maintain! (I also get bonus tickets when you use that code!)
Tell me when a game becomes profitable!
