I bought a Win-For-Life scratch off once, and immediately scratched off two 'LIFE' symbols. It was pretty exciting, so I forced myself not to scratch off the remaining four slots for a while, to keep my hopes up through a boring work week. I convinced myself to scratch off one space per morning. By the fifth day, I had LIFE, LIFE, $100, $10, $100. I finally gave in and scratched the last symbol and....nothing. Literally nothing, like the printer ran out of ink and just stopped printing in that square. I eventually drove to a convenience store and complained and the clerk said he could look it up by its serial number. So he did, and it was a loser.
