This is in California, I noticed that on some of the more popular scratcher games, when the number of top prizes starts to get low, additional tickets get printed to increase the number of top prizes again.
When I buy a ticket of that game, obviously I'd rather buy one from this "second printing" since it will have more jackpots/top prizes left.
So my questions are:
1) How long after the top prizes count on the website is updated do the new tickets hit the market? Are they immediately mixed with the "first printing", or do they only enter the market a few weeks/months later when the first batch sells out?
2) Is there a way to recognize those new tickets, for example from their serial number?
