Re: Did she learn nothing?

Scratch cards are the worse. Fixed odds at on average 1/3rd pay out across the boards. Small payouts very common, to keep you coming back, but payouts always reach 1/3rd. (Distributed evenly throughout the stacks except for the 1 big ticket winning)

"Winning tickets" are known to go through the system, as it's all digital and centralised now. Yet, even if the million/100s thousands of pounds ticket has been claimed, all the posters "you may win" stay up, and they keep charging the £1-£10 or so for the tickets.
