I'm new to this so please forgive if this is posted previously. I couldn't find the answer. I have heard that each state distributes the winning scratch offs purposely, not randomly.  In other words, they make sure that not all the jackpot winning scratch off tickets end up in the same area or closeby. So for instance they will purposely distribute one jackpot winner to chicago , then another to a lesser known city in Illinois and then another to a small town in Illinois.  Is this true?

    I have been wondering about this too.

    Thanks for asking.

      i think that they do know where they go and try to spread them out, but sometimes you will get big wins near eachother so i dont know for sure

       

      one thing im pretty sure about though is that they spread out the wins so they dont send all of them out within the first week of a game

          Welcome to the LP wallyjay, 

          Im not sure however you can send your lottery commission an email asking them to send you the locations of the top prizes. If you go to Texas lottery website and click on the scratchers games they list the cities where they were sold.

          I Love Pink & Green 1908

            A store in California has sold not 1, not 2 but 3 scratch off winning tickets worth 2 millions each. All in the same year. All the same game.

            How could that happen? Crazy

                  Link? Are any of the names the same or same last name? I wonder if those 3 have any links
