There are a lot of different ways that you can play scratcher lotteries. You can pick up the $1 tickets, like millions do, or you could go a little higher, and then there are the heights of the game. If you want to take on the challenge of winning big, and you really want to score the big money, you will need to risk a little more. The high risk scratch games are not that enticing to many, because they want to play more.
If you want to “play” the game, then by all means, go for it. But if you want to win, you will need to do what a Shelburne Falls man did to win $1 million dollars in scratch lotteries. You see, Robert Gilbert Maienza pulled in one great prize when he took a shot at a $30 scratcher ticket.
It’s been stated once, and it will continue to be stated, the higher cost scratchers pay off more often than not. Why? Because fewer people play them, and the odds are in your favor. Of course, it’s $30 to $50 sometimes, but hey, high risk, high reward, right?
In the case of Mr. Maienza, he was able to get a cool $1-million-dollar jackpot for his trouble. He decided on a lump sum payment, and will no doubt enjoy being six figures richer today. Next time you want to play scratchers, take a chance and go for the bigger denominations.
