I always wanted to find a scratcher which had more $100, $200, and $1000 type prizes rather than like 20 $1,000,000 top prizes. When I walk in buying scratchers I honestly know it's almost impossible to win a top prize and i'm just hoping for something smaller, like a grand. You would think somewhere in the country they would make a scratcher where it was chock filled of mid-tier prizes. Say the top prize was $50 grand. But it was a $5 ticket and your chances of getting a hundred or a grand was infinetely higher than your typical game....I think these would be popular. Has a scratcher ever been made like this and would you enjoy this? Or do you play hoping to get that top prize?
They have them once in a while, maybe a family of them. But they typically eliminate the top prizes and load up on the mid-tier prizes instead. They could still offer a top prize, in theory, but the odds would be horrible. Best to play another game instead for large top prizes. Other states have them too, and I believe our last one in CA was Power $777:
I did hit one of these types of skewed games a few years ago, Hot $500. It was a $2 game with thousands of $500 top prizes at around 1-in-1,600 odds. I got to say I won a Scratchers Top Prize! ...albeit a small one. And also I "beat" the game, by getting the top prize before I spent more than the amount of the top prize to get there.(about half) previously posted here:
