Does California Lottery publish the location where winners bought scratch tickets with top prizes? Could't find anything in their website except occasional news but they are few and far between. Is it possible that a city or a county never sold a single winning scratch ticket with top prizes.

    On most state websites they do not publish them. But if you e mail them requesting top  prize winning locations on scratch offs. They will send you the information you want. Or I should say most states will.

      Yessir. Same here in FL. It's public info, so if you request, they should send.

          A few states do publish much more detailed reports of Scratch winners in their website. Not so for CA.

          Keep bugging their Public Records Request person, the more people the better:

          PRACoordinator@calottery.com

          They have the data. They should just publish it on the calottery.com webiste instead of making every single player individually request via email back and forth for snippets of the data. There must be a reason they are making it hard. Knowledge is power. The more informed a player you are the better. So why do they make it so hard to see the data when they have it readily available? Hmmm...
