There is an interesting site out there (free) called LottoCrawler . com  Did a search and didn't find mention on LP.  What it does is check the state lottery sites that list what prizes are still available on scratch tickets and tells you the best ones to play in each price range.

    Just went there to check it out and the site and information looks really good. Unfortunately, they don't include every state. Oklahoma for example is not included.

      I don't know about that site.

      For instance, for Kentucky it says the best $10 game out there is Jumbo Bucks.

      But I know from experience (meaning it has cost me a lot of money!) that it is by far the worst $10 game out there.

      I have *never* hit more than $15 on it, while I'm hitting 50 after 50 after 100 on other games.

      Even the Lottery's webpage states the odds: 1:3.55. Some $5 scratchers have better odds than that. (Cashtastic, 1:3.13 comes to mind)

      Other $10 games range between 1:2.70 and 1:2.91. I think only one other game (Cool Cash, off the top of my head?) is 1:3.25.

        It isn't looking at overall odds of winning alone.  It is looking at how many top prizes are left.  Even if a game has 35 $5,000 prizes doesn't mean there is one in your city.   BobP

          I went to this site and found the game '10 X The Money" for Indiana. Went to the store to purchase ti along with other scratchers and found out this game hasnt even been offered for a few months. Indiana closed the game, yet this site shows its the second best $2 pick for Indiana????
