Would you play scratch games that are soon to be called and has one top prize still remaining? If the odds are really good, due for a big hit and the ratio between the lower prizes claimed and total prizes printed are very close. Let's say there are $1 million worth of tickets left for sale both winners and losers including the jackpot. The jackpot is $3 million and after tax will get you $2 million. If you have $1 million to spare, drive around your state to pick up whatever's left of the tickets, you would profit $1 million. So the odds are in your favor and that's when the lottery decided to pull the game and start a new one. They make hundreds of millions from selling that one game and they are so selfish and greedy they don't even want to pay out that last million. Another thing is, when a game has been called or about to be called and there's a top prize left, is that top prize really out there in circulation or did the lottery discreetly pull that pack and advertise it like it is to make more money? Last question, has there ever been a top prize been claimed after a game has been called?
