Some novice scratch card enthusiasts have an interesting misunderstanding of how statistical odds work. They mistakenly believe that if you win a scratch card game, your odds are somehow worse next time you play. In fact, mathematically your odds remain exactly the same each time you try to win.
Gamblers often believe in a notion that a losing streak means ‘you’re due’ to win soon, or a winning streak means ‘your luck might soon run out.” Savvy scratch card professionals understand that the mathematics of the game mechanics simply do not really work that way. Your odds of winning are exactly the same after a win as they are after a loss. The one thing that may impact the payouts is if you, or someone else, wins the grand prize in a game where there will be only one main winner. Be sure to find out if the jackpot your are targeting is a recurring prize and if it is not, make sure it has not been won by anyone else. So long as the prize is the same, so are the odds from one attempt to the next.
The amount of your investment should be based on your financial situation, your willingness to accept risk and your desire to win a bigger prize. Never on the notion that you are on a hot streak or a cold streak. Keep the amounts consistent and you can put the statistics to work for you over the long term instead of chasing the dragon and getting burned with a sort term mindset.
