Default Great way to end the year.

I got a scratch ticket for Christmas and won $10. I went and turned it in for 2 $5 tickets and hit for $500 and $100, a little while later I bought 2 $2 tickets and won $50 on each. Yesterday I hit one for $100 (bought 1 $1 ticket). So 2 days I hit for $800. Not bad. All goes to my truck fund. Thanks to the state of MA I have 2 extra payments saved. I'm done. I'm well ahead and know to walk away.

Yeah best to walk with the money..... but with that kind of luck I'd be tempted to buy 20 more $5 scratchers.

I don't drink so when I'd go out to a bar with friends my beer money went to scratch tickets. Yeah many times I wish I walked away. Maybe 2 more $5 tickets today then I'm done. Lol.

With my $5.00 keno winnings I bought $5 worth of scratch tickets and hit for $100 and $40. $940 in a week from scratch ticket winnings. Last time I played these was last time I posted I won $100, so it's been months.

I could just move about 5 minutes away to NH, atleast save on state taxes. As long as my winnings are under $600 it's tax free.
