What do you think? would it be fun to pull this prank or pure evil. I'm so tempted to buy them.

Pure evil but great fun.

I'm afraid I think its pure evil and not funny at all and would never play this sort of prank on any of my friends. I'm sure some people will laugh their heads off though.

Biggest I won on a scratch card was £200. I heard of two locals who won huge prizes, one got £100,000 and the other a car.

Lucky them.

I was once sat in a bar at Minneapolis/St. Paul airport, killing a couple of hours between flights. The Minnesota state lottery had a ticket seller in the bar. A rather hassled and, I suspect, inebriated lady came into the bar and bought $250 worth of $1 tickets, sat down beside me at the bar and proceeded to scratch them. As she got further and further through the pile, her language became more and more unladylike. She ended up winning not a single dollar from her 250 tickets and was taken away by airport security after making some unpleasant threats to the ticket seller!

Good way to loose a friend

I don't think I'll buy them, but if any one wants to share a lottery story I'd like to hear it...

Ticking as resolved.

You know how sometimes the lotto does a bonus jackpot only draw?

Well a friend of a friend got 5 numbers on one but with it being jackpot only won nothing!

Unlucky
