Here in CA, $5 is the top scratcher ticket, with typical $100,000-$1,000,000 top prizes available. These seem to be the best odds in practice, as well as by the published odds. I also avoid the cheapies $1, $2, $3 and only buy if I have spare change from ticket redemptions that are not multiples of $5.
Interesting to look at how other states run their scratchers. not sure which is better. Compared to the big 3 lotto states, NY, MA and FL, it seems our CA lotto has a lot fewer scratcher games in circulation, but each with more and higher top prizes. We don't have any $10 or $20 tickets yet, and not sure if I want them to transition to that same method as other states?
