Robert Leamy has managed to win $10,300 from scratch-off tickets, without spending a dollar buying one!
His unusual strategy involves collecting used tickets, and entering them into second chance drawings. A strategy he has been employing for 6 years now resulting in 52 wins.
Although given that he has spent up to 10 hours a week collecting and entering huge quantities of tickets, it’s not been the best paying job.
An official from the Vermont Lottery did confirm however that there was nothing in the rules to stop anyone from using discarded used tickets for second chance draws. So long as nobody had signed the back of the ticket, it was considered unowned.
