So Im looking at my lottery website on remaining top prizes available out of the total top prizes. At the bottom of the page it says:

 *Denotes games that have been reordered or have been delivered to the Florida Lottery in more than one shipment.

 

What exactly does that mean for me? They have been distributed? Waiting to be shipped out?  It's for Florida if that helps anybody.

    Games that have been reordered means that the top prize could be in that reorder shipment. Delivered means that the top prize could be in the shipment that has already been delivered. This is just a way to cover their ass. Green laugh

    Basically they're saying, The top prize could be in the store, but don't hold us to it because it could also be in the shipment to the store not yet arrived because the owner ordered more tickets. 

    It's just a nice way for them to say that the location is a secret. lol

        Scratch ticket games that have been reordered are reordered in exactly the same win/loss ratio as the original order. For example, if a game comes out and has 2 top winners, x amount of second tier winners, x amount of third tier winners, and so on, reordered groupings will have the exact same number of all the prizes in relation to the number of tickets ordered. A reorder will simply increase all the prize levels by the number of reorders made.

        You will never have a game where the first order has no top prizes and the second reorder has all the top prizes for both orders. Prizes are distributed equally among the groups...
