I asked the Illinois Lottery via email if they had detailed prize odds available for all of their instant games.  I received a response earlier today and they stated that the detailed prize odds are on the back of each ticket.  I know that the overall odds of winning is usually printed on the back of the ticket, but I wouldn't have thought that the detailed prize odds would also be printed on the back as well.

Can any of you Illinois scratcher players confirm that?  I'm just wanting to be sure the people at the Illinois Lottery aren't mixing the overall and detailed prize odds up (and/or be sure they're not trying to give me the runaround, sorta like what the GA Lottery was trying to do for a while).

Just an FYI if you're confused...when I mean detailed prize odds, I mean something like this -- a listing of prizes and the odds of hitting *that* particular prize (e.g. in the link, odds of a $2 breakeven is 1 in 7, a $90 winner is 1 in 3,784, etc.).  I'm not talking about the overall odds of winning for a ticket.

Thanks a bunch!

A Gold account on Lottery Post:  $4.95

A Millionaire Jumbo Bucks scratcher:  $20

Airfare and hotel in March 2007 to see The Price Is Right before Bob Barker retired:  $600-something

Winning something to get a trip to a district office:  Priceless Big Grin

      It really sucks when they only publish the prizes claimed for the top tier prizes.   It should be like the Texas lottery website where all the up to date claim information is available for download in a csv file for easy importation into Excel.   Write your lottery commission and complain.

        at the illinois lottery website, there is a page that has remaining prizes and the tickets with the odd listed for each ticket they sell. check there all the info your looking for is there. by the way the only odd there are for winning is losing fo me.
