    They do not publish where the jackpot tickets are distributed.

      I dont believe so I think its supposed nobody knows until someone wins then they scan it and see all the info about where it was sold, what store etc., etc,

        i heard that one guy  who knew got busted because his partners in the crime of buying loads of scratch offs in a winning store  had a disagreement over shares.  i think maybe  5 people in a whole organization might know. think i even saw an ep of  law n order or some such  on  the story

              does the lottery commision know where the jackpot insatant(sic) tickets go?

              The distribution of the top prizes of scratch offs is not random. Here the lottery attempts spreading out the winners as far apart (by location) as possible. They also stagger the dates the top winners are won. You cannot have the top winners all won in the early phase of the game, yes?

              That money's gone fo ever

                I agree.  I don't follow much the distribution across California of our top prizes, but top prizes are staggered fairly well relative to sales here.

                  I think you're referring to William C. Foreman, lottery "security" <cough, cough> employee who tipped off his lackeys to go buy out the tickets from a store to snag the jackpot winning ticket.

                  Yeah, someone always knows where the scratch prizes are. Not necessarily the commission, they are not usually involved with operations. And lottery operations doesn't have it, they rely on the vendor's computers. So you hope there is sufficient separation between the personnel of the ticket manufacturer, and the computer systems and distribution of the vendor.

                  But nothing is foolproof.

                    Yes they know where the tickets are distributed. Its all info contained somewhere on a computer or printout.

                    They know when tickets are stolen, what batch of tickets needs to be flagged so they aren't redeemed.

                    There is nothing random about where the big winners are placed.
