    1. They work by buying one, scratching the ticket to reveal symbols or numbers depending on the ticket, and then looking at the rules to see if you won. Usually they are on ticket, but you can also find them on the Washington state lottery site. If you win a small amount of money, usually under $600, you can cash those at any place that sells lottery tickets so it can be a different place from where you bought the tickets. If you win a large amount of money then you will have to go to one of the lottery offices in your state to collect the prize.

    2. Yes, people do win prizes playing scratch off tickets but most either break even or lose money. The $20 tickets, which is a very risky bet, typically has the best odds of any of the other scratch off tickets and still the average odds are somewhere around 1 in 3.15 which pretty much means 1 in 3 tickets is a winner of a prize and the majority of the prizes in a $20 scratch off ticket is $20 so you break even assuming you only bought one ticket. Your typical odds on a $1 scratch off ticket are 1 in 3.96 but what I'm looking at a lot of the $1 tickets in Washington have average odds of around 1 in 4.5, that's not good.

    3. You go about getting a scratch ticket/tickets at any place that sells lottery tickets, usually most gas stations and even grocery stores are the place to go.
