For the last 20 or so scratchers i have done i have taken a screenshot of the outcome and was wondering if anyone else would be interested in doing the same and putting together some sort of "data pool" ? I would eventually want to calculate the odds for prizes.

The odds can be calculated using eighth grade math. If you believe the scratchers aren't random then save yourself the effort and just assume whatever results you want because I guarantee that's what you'll see in your data anyway. Conspiracy theories are like that.

Is that what one would call Confirmation Bias?
