If 4 jackpots are release in an instant game, do they print more than the rate of hitting those jackpots? 1 in 3 million is the rate to hit a jackpot and 12 million tickets printed for 4 jackpots. Will they print 14 million tickets which in this circumstances the extra 2 million tickets will not contain a 5th? How will the tickets be printed I relation to a specific game?

    If the chance listed for a jackpot is 1 in 3 million and there are 4 jackpots than it means exactly 12 millions tickets were printed.

          They either collect the tickets back when there are still jp left over or they print more tickets! If they don't print 3 million tickets won't they not have to print out a jp? What makes you think they are not allow to do that?

          For instance, let say megamillion is 1 in 15 to match 1 number, you think an average of 1 in 15 people wins megamillion? I believe not! So if they put 100.1 to win 50$ on 5$ game that.1 still give them an advantage! It might not be in that book you are playing! So if they are allow to alter the amount of a winning amount, why aren't they allow to print more tickets than the jp? You can only argue the %age of hitting a dollar amount at the end right?

            NYS prints additional tickets to games. Sometimes they will give it a new game number and lump it together with the previous bunch like they did with Set For Life.

              What do you mean lump it together? 

              They print a new game number if it sells and its in high demand! That is a way to keep the game alive!

                yeah but don't they keep the odds the same? like print either 3 million more tickets with 1 new jackpot, or 6 million additional tickets with 2 new jackpots, etc?

                  You probably right so nobody could hit the leftover jp!

                    If the odds are they same they dont update it. Look at NYS Set For Life. Same odds two different game numbers lumped together. Then look at a game like 7 11 21. Different odds and payouts so they separate them.

                    So while the overall odds might be the same a buyers have know way of knowing which game number has the most jackpots left.
