    Default Instant scratch its

    I've recieved a tonne of scratch its for my birthday and didn't win a single cent I have been getting scratchies for years and I think the best prize I have ever won was $12. Has anyone actually ever won anything substantial ? I realise these systems aren't set up with an advantage for the buyer... It is a form of gambling after all!

    I've won $50 two times and both times it was on a crossword scratch-it.

    I don't know anyone who's won anything substantial.
