If you know how many Top prizes were available when the game started, you just multiply that # x the odds. For example, if there were 10 Top Prizes of \$300,000, then you Multiply 10 x 4,233,600 = 42,336,000 tickets printed for that game total.??

This is quite irrelevant.

My first post clearly spells out among how many tickets.

I have better odds of verifying whether my assertion is correct or not by 5th a grader math student.

Yeah I'd help if I understood what you were asking.

Lemme just look up the odds of that scratch off for you.

Odds are, you'll still be asking the same question when this forum is over. It may help if you're more specific in asking your question..!

For every 4,223,600 printed tickets, there is one winner of 100,000 and one of 300,000.

For every 5,292,000 printed tickets, there is one winner of 200,000.

That's what it means, it's approximately 100,000+ 3.5 winners for every 5,292,000 tickets printed, which doesn't really make sense so say about 7 winners for 100,000 dollars or higher for every 10,584,000 printed tickets.

Actually don't play this game, because NY does tell you when No Top Prizes remain, and that's the case with this game.  They say they're in the process of collecting it from retailers.

wow, so the only dude on here actually trying to aswer your dumbazz question, you are a smart azz too? Why don't you go play in traffic. You are obviously a dumbazz that can't figure out odds for yourself.

You obviously can't do basic math, and you have obviously came to the wrong place. Some people in life are just idiots, and you have to accept that you are one

Boney - actually NY has 2 of these games, an older and a newer. But it really doesnt matter because the OP in this thread is an unnappreciative prick that will never understand odds, even when someone points them out to him on a gold platter. This guy doesnt need to even be playing lottery when he can't do simple math & after he asks a 5th grade quesiton like " what does it mean when it says odds are 1 in 375,000??? My 3 year old would know the answer to that

The RED one shows as being collected from retailers. Im guessing the first one is the new replacement.

Again, you just arent smarter than a 5th grader are ya?

Where is your original post does it show how many tickets prointed?

I really hope you arent referring to this:

 \$100,000 1 in: 4,233,600.00 \$200,000 1 in: 5,292,000.00 \$300,000 1 in: 4,233,600.00

If the odds of winning is listed as above. Does that mean

There would be 5,292,000/4,233,600; \$100,000, 1.25 tickets

There would be \$200,000, 1 ticket

There would be 4,233,600/5,292,000; \$300,000, 0.8 tickets.

In other words, among 5,292,000 tickets there would be total of 3.05 tickets offering prizes worth of \$600,000

>>> this is not the total ticket print. You MUST know how many TOP PRIZES were available at beginning to find this imformation out!!!

Im sorry but this has got to be by far the dumbest quesiton asked on Lottery Post. You really think that those odds mean there are 1.25 Top Prizes of \$100,000? Are you kidding me? You really asked that question? what in the he11 is the .25? LOL

I figured that most be the case, but I couldn't find the other one, and I'm not too interested, since I'm not in NY too often anyway.  When I am I usually play a couple of draw games, whatever has a promo going on.
