Millions of people today think that they have good luck and bad luck. Without this ideology in their minds, there would be no casinos, no lotteries, and no games of skill for that matter. It starts with the notion of luck and ends with either a winning scratcher or a losing one for that matter. The notion of winning is not lost on modern times, modern times have presented a whole new generation of gaming options, but once you peel away the fancy designs, and much more, you will begin to see that it’s a lot easier to win, than most people are willing to admit. Lottery companies get rich when people lose, but at the same time, they can’t rig the scratchers completely, they can only try to play odds, and they beat you in a couple of ways. Scratch off tickets are not impossible, they just seam that way.
The first way that the companies beat the average person is by having too many choices. By having so many choices, the average player starts to feel their heart race faster, and the anxiety of winning or losing sets into the mind, forcing the hand of the player, making a bad decision and losing. It is true that people don’t like taking tests, even multiple choice fare, and the big business of creating cash from gambling know this, so they dupe you into playing a game where you have to choose only so many scratch points from a grand design, and 99% of the time the average player loses. But you can shift the odds, by simply making logical decisions, and relying on skill not luck to carry you through victory.
The second way big time lottery manufacturers force the average person to lose is by not talking about higher priced options. Most people aren’t going to squabbled over a $1 ticket, but when you are dropping $20 on a ticket, you’ll expect serious money to be returned for your investment. Truth be told, the odds shift when spending more, but if you’re going to go cheap, pay attention to our first warning.
The final way the companies screw you over is by letting convenience store owners to keep the tickets away from the consumer, that way, they can’t formulate a plan of action or figure out which tickets lend themselves best for making serious money. To combat this, you’ll have to either search out a vending machine or befriend the store clerk that will be honest about letting you see tickets before you scratch and also give you any inside information that might give you an edge.
