This lottery ticket can result in a huge prize if you win, but it’s quite expensive. Many players are wondering if it’s worth it to hand over the Units for a chance to win big. So, should you buy the Guardians of the Galaxy lottery ticket?

Should You Buy the Lottery Ticket in Guardians of the Galaxy?

The lottery ticket on Knowhere costs 1,000 Units, which is much more expensive than the other attractions in the area. You can only buy one ticket, but the prize for a winning ticket is a whopping 5 million Units. That’s enough to pay the Nova Corps fine and achieve all of your wildest dreams, so why wouldn’t you buy the ticket?

Well, it turns out that the offer is too good to be true. Keep reading on to find out what happens after purchasing the lottery ticket in Guardians of the Galaxy.


What Happens When You Buy the Lottery Ticket?

After spending 1,000 Units on the lottery ticket, you won’t be able to do anything with it. Supposedly, you’re able to find out if you’ve won when you return to Knowhere. The ticket machine disappears after the initial encounter. If you spent the 1,000 Units, then you got scammed.

The only thing the lottery ticket does is take up space in your inventory. You can view it in the menu like most other items the Guardians collect on their journey, but it has no use. Thankfully, Units aren’t too important in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and you should still have quite a few Units to your name even if you fell for this scam.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch.
