[bwootzwo] Minesweeper scratch ticket

Minesweeper is the best puzzle to be made in physical form in the style of a scratch ticket.  (Not good for the actual lottery; people will repaint incorrectly scratched mines if money is riding on it.)  Perhaps it can be included as a fun irrelevant puzzle in lottery tickets.

What other puzzles would work?

Sudoku as scratch ticket might be a good way to temporarily conceal then deliver the solution.  It could include "mines" of squares that are not solvable by logic, though that might be a tricky thing to define.  Perhaps a sudoku that does not have a unique solution.
