This is just my theory.I like to play the 1,000,000.00 and 500,000.00 scratch tickets for my state,and doing so have noticed that two or more winning jackpot tickets are never in the same town.so what I do is ask for a print out of the remaining tickets and check the lottery website for the town where the past winners were purchased.also can anyone answer this?why is it that for ex 1 mil prize tickets have different cash and after tax pay out amounts?

    That may seem to be the case, however, here in FL there have been several games which had a Top Prize come from the same town within a couple weeks of each other. These were also back-to-back winners. One game in particular ($20 game) had the first 3/4 winners come from the same city. Seemed pretty messed up!

     

    "Why is it that for ex 1 mil prize tickets have different cash and after tax pay out amounts?"

    The reason for this, is because typically the higher Top Prizes are what the amount would be (annuity) if it was invested over a 20 yr period. The tickets should have this stated in the small print on the back of the tickets. For example, if the Top Prize is $1,000,000, a winner can either pick the "Lump Sum" of $700,000, OR they can take the $1,000,000 over a 20 yr period ($50,000 a yr)

        In Arizona, Phoenix metro is the 12th largest in the nation with over 4 million people. It makes sense that most of the big winners will be where the majority of sales are.
