    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?

    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.

    "Mad Money."

    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.

    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?

    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.

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

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

    $500$ 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)

    does it matter if there was a space between $ $?
    cuz it shows as $ $ instead of $$

    You could always lookup online your states lottery page, they may have an example listed or a phone number you can call and ask.

    These are the NY codes. I think you are NJ so they may be close. I copied the codes for $500.00

    $500.00 FVH FHV, VFH, VHF, HFV, HVF

    But isn't the 500 between those dollar signs? You wrote in your first post that it looked like this: $500$ That would not be a winner.

    It needs to be two dollar signs together without any numbers: $$

    No where in any of her posts does she say that. Each scratch off card has a barcode on it. It's scanned into the lotto machine at the store and it'll tell them how much you won. If it's over a certain amount, it'll give directions on how to claim the prize.
