In the U.S. only the state governments can run a lottery - including scratchers. Any private atempt to do so would come under the RICO Act (racketeering). Probably Canada, too, whatever your equivalent law is.
Some compnaies use scratchers for promotions for % off discounts or a free order of fries or a coke, but never cash prizes.
Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.
There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
