The Scratch-R / Golden Scratch-R are misleading!

The golden tickets are mainly to get you hooked on donuts which means you will buy them in the future.... well thats their plan anyway :lol:


Im already addited to buying donuts so take this as my friendly warning they like Pringles "once you pop you cant stop" sooo "once you bought donuts you cant stop" :lol:

    Whenever you do the regular scratch-r it tells you how many donuts you would've won if you had done a golden scratch-r. When I got 3 mallets on the regular scratch-r, it said I would've gotten 30 donuts on the golden. I did some goldens and eventually got 3 mallets but I only got 20 donuts! This seems extremely shady and I wanted to bring it to people's attention.

    Thanks for the heads up. I doubt it's intentional.

    Thanks for letting us know. I have been holding back on giving in to the Scratcher obsession... Yet.

    It tells you what you could have won if you had purchashed a golden ticket. It's not saying every time you get 3 mallets on a golden ticket you get that amount. It's just letting you know that had you purchased a golden ticket you would have one whatever so they can try and hook you through your curiosity.

    I have a rule about not using any of my own money for donuts. I will use iTunes gift cards to purchase donuts but my actual money is off limits.. Same rule applies to the golden scratchers.

    It's just like the regular lottery..."YOU HAVE TO PLAY TO WIN", but just remember that for every ticket you buy it's not always going to hit.

    I think each KWIK-E-MART should have its own individual Scratch-R Timer, instead of one for all.
    Especially since the KWIK-E-MART pays out so low.

    It maybe a coincidence but me and my girlfriend were discussing this before. I have just over $1M and every time I do a Scratch-R I got 1 or 2 bombs EVERYTIME, where as my girlfriend has around $300k and has had the jackpot twice :-S like I say may be coincidence

    You do realize there is a legend at the bottom that tells you what you get, right? Three mallets = 20 donuts. You would have known that after one ticket, so if you kept playing just to try and get the 3 mallets, then it's your own problem.

    Apparently you didn't read the first line of my post. I'm not talking about the legend at the bottom of the golden scratch-r (which does match up to what you get). I'm talking about when you do the regular scratch-r and it tells you how many donuts you would've gotten had you done a golden scratch-r and got the same symbols on the ticket. That's where the discrepancy is. The game misleads you by telling you in the regular scratch-r that you'll get more donuts than you actually do in the golden scratch-r despite having the same symbols on the ticket in each.

    I have around $18,000 and played the scratch off 5 times and the highest I got was 9 donuts. So, no, they don't have pity on you. :)
