I wasn’t sure if there was a factual answer for this, so I put it in IMHO.
Who buys all these scratcher lottery tickets?
I buy lottery tickets sometimes (for entertainment purposes of course), and most people that I know buys lottery tickets every once in a while. So I am not judging spending money on lotteries.
I don’t know anyone who buys scratchers. Yet if you go in convenience stores and other places that sell them, they take a up a good portion of space, so apparently a lot of people buy them.
I am guessing this is a demographics thing? They are pretty expensive, so I would be a little surprised if it were poorer people.
