Do your scratchers come from a "distributor"?

All scratcher games in AZ are processed through a "distributor" who also packages all games into $300. packets.(Example: $20. game has 15 tickets to a packet)

Is this common to other states?

Can a "distributor" be trusted?

There is a "systematic" way the tickets are printed and anyone who has access to all of the printing can (it seems) easly figure out the numbering order and system so that they could pick out winners and follow them to their "distributed" location.

Every time a new $20. game comes out in AZ a big prize ($500k) gets claim right away, and I keep wondering if the "distributors" have their hands in the cookie jar?

    Good question!  Yes Nod    Maybe you could get Dateline to do an investigative under cover report on this.

      lol. good one mc. But I'm sure the investigators are already talking about it NOW. lol.

      Remember the story out of CA a number of years ago where some people figured out the Lotteries "system" for printing batches and all they had to do was find the right ticket numbers?

        I not sure, but I wonder if they would have to be bonded.

              If it did turn out that someone is stealing the $500k tickets and they want to give me credit for "cracking" the case I have a suggestion I was thinking of.............

              They can put me on TV and GIVE ME a $500k winning ticket and let me tell everyone that it was The Power of Positive Energy Flow that I learned at LP that made me realize that something in that scratch game was amiss, lol.lol.

                I am sure we will hear all kinds of crazy things in the wonderful world of lottery in the years to come, just when you thought is was safe to go back in the water.

                  RONNIETHREEONESIX,

                  you would certainly deserve the credit, but they certainly would not want to add to the publicity,

                  thats what I mean by "DAMAGE CONTROL"

                    As far as I know, NY's scratchers don't go through a distributor, but I suppose I could be wrong.

                    It seems like a big winner almost always surfaces soon after the introduction of a new high-end game in NY.  I have to believe that's intentional, as it helps fuel publicity.
