Hi guys and gals, never realized there was any kind of strategy to playing scratch offs!! lol... So, my question is, here in Flordia, I noticed that most of the scratch off games ending date is TBA and I don't see how many tickets are issued per game. Is there any where to find this information? All it seems to show is how many grand prizes are remaining and sometimes, the end date. Also, when do the holiday games usually end? January? Thanks for any help!!! love the site, hooked..

    Hello,

    yes there is a way to find out. Its kind of tricky but it's interesting. The FL Lottery has legal paperwork called "Emergency Rules document". These emergency rules are a document that's submitted to Tallahassee when new game is created. The emergency rules document shows all of the legal information about the particular game including the different options for prizes, the symbols included in the game and all of the legal mumbo jumbo.

    To see an example go to Google and type in this: 1007 BILLION DOLLAR BLOCKBUSTER winner

     

    (The only way I was able to find this is by including the game # in the search "1007")

     

    Then look at search results and its the 3rd link says something like "access file - Florida Administrative Rules, Law etc

    I just looked at the document for that game and it shows there are 546,000 Pools of 120,000 tickets per pool. So for that game it appears 65,520,000,000.00 scratch cards were created. The document also shows how many winners of each prize bracket there are "Per pool"

      Excellent information,  still it boils down to ridiculous odds but what we can do is play as smart as possible within a budget.  Winners are out there, someone will win and you have to play to win.

      The numbers for BDB Blockbuster tickets you have a few extra 000 on there, it should 65 million tickets,  65,520,000

      and the prizes are then showing totals for the whole game.  For example the top Prize 10Million there are 10 spread in those 65million tickets so that

      is where they are getting the odds  of 1 in 6,552,000.  10 divided by the 65 million =6mil.

      In IOWA their scratch off site shows Prizes claimed, unclaimed and prizes left available which is nice.  I'd like to see more about locations.  They say it's pretty randomized but it seems like they wouldn't want to many winners close together so I'm thinking somehow they spread the top prizes out a bit.

      There is definately an algorithm used to print the tickets, I think.

      If you look at the back of the tickets that long number shows the game number, for example, the BDB would be 1007 0100120 0 010 so that first number is 1007 the game number for BDB.  Then the pool number 0100120 then the roll number,  Roll 0 and then the ticket number,  ticket #10

      I just try to play numbers that are lucky for me and hope for the best

        ahh correct, I multiplied 546,000 pools instead of multiplying 546 pools x 120,000 =)

         

         

        They are rediculous odds. Kinda crazy that dude in FL won $1Million on the BDB game a year ago, and then the same guy in the same city just won $10 Million on it as well....Skeptical

          I wish the FL lotto website showed how many prizes left for ALL of the prizes, rather than just the top 2 prizes.  I have a feeling that most of the smaller size prizes have already been won and that in addition, the state is holding back on distributing the top 2 prizes until they've racked up more money.

          I also can't believe that that one guy won the top two prizes...what are the odds of that happening?  He must be playing a LOT every day.
