Agents scan cards to see if they are winners. Why can’t they scan scratch off cards, determine the winners then sell the losers to fools like me?
Scratch off cards have bar codes on the back of the card. To confirm winners, agents scan the code and the system tells them that what the prize is or if it is a loser. So – you don’t have to scratch off the card to see if it is a winner. Or do they scan the front scratched off area somehow?
