At the back of every scratch off tickets or at least it is the case here in California, there are 4 type of numbers unique to each ticket. The number looks like this 700-173520-9-045.
The 1st number, 700 is the Game Number. In this case 700 is the game Bedazzled.
The 2nd number, 173520 is the roll number.
The 4th number, 045 is the position of the ticket in the roll. 045 indicates the 45th or rather the 46th ticket in the roll since they begin numbering from 000 instead of 001.
The mystery number is the 3th number, 9 in this case. I have never figured out what it is. I bought 7 tickets of the same game from 6 different locations and the 3th numbers are all different. Even the 2 tickets from 2 rolls that I bought from the same store have different 3th number. They have numbers 1, 3, 5, 8, 6 and 9. Does anyone know what this number signify?
