My biggest lottery win came via a $2 card and I don't play that much scratch offs. In my humble opinion, $2 cards are inexpensive enough to make the risk worthwhile. The cost does add up but not as fast as those $10 and $20 cards.

Also I think the NY Lottery is also a decent one as far as scratch offs are concerned.

That money's gone fo ever

    Washington has weak payouts on their scratchers, compared to states like Georgia and North Carolina. A typical $20 card top prize in WA will only be $1M, compared to $3M or more in GA or NC. The average $10 card top prize in WA is $200K, compared to $1M in GA and NC. 

    Overall WA's lottery is average and mediocre for the 50 states, definitely not measuring up to "Top Ten" lotteries like GA, NC etc. If you're a scratcher enthusiast, you can live in quite a few states that are better than WA. Not to mention the lotteries in states adjacent to WA aren't really any better, so you won't be able to make scratcher runs to other states. 

    As far as telling how many tickets were printed for each game, I say the more info you have the better when it comes to any lottery game, so I see no problem with it. Cheers!  Cheers

    It's still better than Oklahoma our highest scratcher is $5 for $40-$50 Bang Head thousand we have no set for life games no life changing games Mad. OLC is trying to figure out why lottery sales have declined because the games suxs P***ed. The surrounding states games are better Texas, Missouri, Arkansas and even Kansas scratchers have better games and payouts.

     

    My brother won $1,000 on a Washington State scratcher two years ago he lives in Silverdale Wa.
