On the $2 Hit $100 tickets there are two ways to win, a money bag symbol wins the prize shown for that slot, and a HIT symbol wins all 10 prizes shown on the ticket.

The thing is, when you scratch the 10 spots on the ticket, you uncover numbers and prize abounts. My question is, why are there numbers on these tickets? Why doesn't a losing space just say Try Again like the Monopoly tickets?

Does anyone know?

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.

    I actually got a reply from the Illinois lottery when I asked them this question, here it is:

    The numbers are just “fillers” – just there to take up the space.
