I won....I think

Anyway, today I decide to play the scratch cards.
I won \$2 on one and \$4.00 on another. But my big question is, I think I won \$500/\$1,000 on another.

"Reveal 3 Like prize amounts win that prize. Reveal 2 like amounts plus a "\$\$", win DOUBLE that amount.

So the following comes up

1st line - \$20.00, \$25.00 and \$500\$
2nd line - \$500\$, \$5.00 and \$25.00

It says 2 amounts plus a \$\$ which it does have at each end of the 500.. Did I win? It's so confusing. If not, why would they put \$ at each end?

Take it and have them check it.

i had the stop and shop people check it. they said it wasn't a winner? But why would the card have \$\$ at each end of the money amount?

What scratch game are you playing? Its hard to know with out the game. You can also enter it in the second chance drawing. I am assuming it is lotto? If it wont go in then it is a winner.

The rules are

Reveal 3 like prize amounts, win that prize. Reveal 2 like amounts plus a "\$\$" win Double that amount

the card has 2 \$500\$ (the same)

You have to scratch off a \$\$ by itself & then 2 like amounts. It is a confusing game.

 smitch425 10-04-2012 06:52 PM

Perhaps you were only supposed to reveal a total of 3 amounts, not scratch off the whole thing. Just guessing. I don't play the lottery.

When you win a scratch off, the letters on the outside corresponds with the win. ON your two, it will be two - five is fve, what is on the other one?

 Luv0fDisney 10-04-2012 06:56 PM

They both say

\$500\$

So I guess I didn't win?

just take the card to the store, they can scan it to see if it's a winner. That's the easiest way to know.

She already did that

You didn't scratch off a \$\$ anywhere, right? \$\$ on its own with no digits. It sounds like that's what you needed to win.

 Allison 10-04-2012 07:33 PM

Nope, not a winner. You didn't get \$\$.

I would think the \$\$ would have to be in there only box.

\$500\$ is not the same as \$\$.

If you had won it would have said something like
1st line - \$20.00, \$25.00 and \$500\$
2nd line - \$500\$, \$5.00 and \$\$

I'm assuming the reason they put the dollar sign on each end of the \$500 was so that people wouldn't confuse say the \$5.00, \$50.00 and \$500.00? Or maybe not enough room to put \$500.00? Maybe it's a "space saver" LOL

But in order to win, you would have had to scratch off two like amounts along with a \$\$ (double dollar sign)
