If ticket 000 paid me $30, the price of the ticket, what do you think ticket 001 will pay?

It seems like it will pay nothing, but I don't know :)

        I didn't buy both, but thought about doing it. So many prizes remain.

          The tickets are the beginning and end of the roll paying out the highest are a myth. It is possible, and likely 001 would be a dud. Context matters too. If the previous several tickets were losers, then I'd say it is a higher chance of that one being a winner.

            Ok thanks. I'm doing $10 tickets for now. Might get a $30 ticket in a couple of weeks.

              I couldn't tell you but if I had to guess, I would say 10 times the amount of ticket 000.  At least that's what happened to me tonight.  I bought 10 tickets off a fresh roll at a convenience station.  Ticket 000 paid $10, and ticket 001 paid $100.  In fact I netted $160 combined from tickets 000 - 009.

              Yeah it was a good night. Yes Nod

              Hopefully your luck was just as good.  Cheers

                That's what's up! Happy for you. More than likely, 001 is still there in stock, as no one seems interested. I bought 2 $10.00 tickets, 039 and 040, both gave me $20.00 each. So profit:$20. Went to another store to get the same tickets with my $20 win. Both losers. Probably should have stuck to the first store.

                  Nobody has a clue where the winners and losers are in a book of cards.

                  This question also puts us in a difficult position because we only know the outcome (whether it's a winner or a loser) for only one ticket in the entire book. How are we supposed to know about the rest of the cards?

                  Some state lotteries publicly say that a book of tickets will have X amount of winners and Y amount of losers. That means if you bought many tickets in a book and counted the amount of winners and losers, you could begin saying with greater confidence that the next ticket you scratch off (from that same book) is more likely to be a winner or is more likely to be a loser. We couldn't even do that in this case because we only know the outcome of one ticket.

                  To sum it all up, there's no way to explicitly answer this question with any level of accuracy.

                    Totally get it.
