How many winners are in a roll of scratch tickets?
Regarding this, how many winning scratch off tickets are in a roll?
One roll of 200 tickets could contain half as many prizes as the next roll of 200 tickets. And most of the winners could be in the first half of a roll, or they could be spread about evenly throughout a roll. Your chances of winning don't change based on how you buy the tickets.
Secondly, does every roll of scratch offs have a big winner?
Every new roll of lottery scratch off tickets is guaranteed a certain number of winners — which vary by game. This is not to say that these will all be big winners. In fact, one-dollar winning tickets are far more common than $500, $1,000, or jackpot winners.
The $20 packs only have 30 tickets, so if my averages are right, you would at least make back around $300 and the hopes of winning REAL big!
