I'm tired of buying Florida Scratch offs not knowing how many lower tier prizes are available. I just randomly picked a few States - Ohio, Illinois, Virginia and Texas. They all have a grid showing how many scratch off prizes were issued and how many LOWER tier prizes are yet to be won. WHY NOT FLORIDA ? If we ALL write to the Florida Lottery and ask they put up such a grid, we would have a much better chance and idea of what we might win. Florida Only shows TOP prizes left. If you agree and are willing to write the Florida Lottery let me know and if enough of us ask - or even demand it or we won't buy - they might just do it. Why buy scratchers not knowing if - as an example - all the $5,000, $10,000 etc prizes have already been won for a certain scratcher?

    I'll have to check out Ohio's website, didn't know they posted all that information.  Thanks.

      Demand? Well, there are some lotteries out there that don't even have a grid letting players know that all the top prizes are gone.

      I'm happy that FL lotto has this.

      If the top prize is gone, I'm not that interested in winning a lower prize that much. Once the top prizes are gone, I stop playing.

        I now see what you're talking about. That is a nice feature actually.

        But I'm still interested in the TOP prize though

          I wish TN gave all their info too

          they only show the remaining prizes of the top 3

          Win or lose its a game of chance

            My state lists the number of winners for as low as $100 and they update it everyday.

              All state lotteries should be required to post all the information for their scratch-off ticket games such as number of ticket printed, total number of prizes and all remaining prizes at every prize level updated daily. While some states like Texas, Oklahoma and Washington provide all this information, too many only provide such limited data, many times only updated once a week, that it is nearly useless!
