I have looked on the website trying to find out the total amount of tickets printed in each Scratch off game. Can anyone from NC tell me where you find this information?  I thought it was public information but I do not see it on any of the tickets on the site.  I have bought quite a few The Vault tickets from various stores and out of all have only gotten a lousy $3.00 win.  But I have had several with the same ticket number which confused me.  I thought each ticket was supposed to have it's own number.

    You should post in the scratcher's forum...

    Who knows how many tickets have been printed... if you find that out, please let me know too!

    Here's the remaining prizes though... and yes, you will get tickets with the identical numbers... they are printed in "packs" etc.

      Okay thanks.  I am new to the site.  I thought Lottery Discussion was for general topics.

              Hey Im in NC also and Ive never seen it posted anywhere either, but I just keep up with the "top prizes remaining" count and when they are gone I stop buying that particular scratch-off...Also the more expensive tickets are supposed to have better odds, so like if it's 3.95 to 1 I'll buy four tickets, hoping to win something, but sometimes I'll lose on all 4 LOL

                This is how I work out the tickets printed on this game.

                http://www.nc-educationlottery.org/uploads/docs/htp344.pdf

                The odds of winning the top prize are 1:720,000 and there are 4 top prizes.

                Therefore it means that there are 720,000 X 4 = 2,880,000 tickets printed.

                I hope a math major at LP can check on my calculations and correct me if I am wrong Naughty

                That money's gone fo ever

                    That's how I thought it may work too... but I wasn't sure about that Disapprove

                    We have a $20 game here were there are 3 top prizes with 1 in 7,000,000 odds, so... 21,000,000 tickets printed.

                    Another $5 game with 12 top prizes with 1 in 4,050,000...that's 48,600,000 tickets... that's crazy!

                    So if that is right, along with my math Crazy... the total revenue alone (less payouts) for just those two games is $663 Million dollars- Eek

                    There's about 12-13 million residents in our state... safe to say all of them do NOT buy scratchers, so it's gonna be awhile before all those tickets get sold... if ever at all.

                      Thanks.  That at least gives me an idea of the amount.
