Overall odds are the odds that reflect your chances for winning a Lottery prize overall. For example, if a game has odds of 1 in 4, which means for all of the tickets in the entire game, there will be one winning ticket per every four tickets. However, because prizes are distributed randomly throughout the entire game, it does not mean that there will be a winning ticket every 4th ticket.

Yes. All prizes won are subject to Federal and State withholdings. For more specific information, click here.

The CT Lottery is committed to the responsible sale and play of its games. Unfortunately, there are dishonest individuals and groups who make their living by operating scams designed to trick people into thinking they’ve won a Lottery prize. Their goal is to convince victims to provide personal information or pay fake "processing fees" and “taxes” through a wire transfer or money order.  Unless you specifically entered a CT Lottery promotion, you will never be contacted by the CT Lottery informing you that you have won a prize. If you did not purchase a Lottery ticket, or entered a CT Lottery 2nd Chance drawing, you cannot win a prize.

We will be happy to verify that your ticket was paid properly.  In order to do so, please email us the name and address of the Retailer, along with the date and approximate time of your ticket transaction.  Please be sure to include any other information or details about the transaction that may be helpful.  Upon receipt of your email and its review, we will be right back in touch with you with our findings.
Please send photos (front and back) of your ticket to Lottery headquarters for review.  If your ticket is a scratch ticket, please be sure that the latex is completely scratched off the face of the ticket before taking a photo and sending to us.
Yes. Lottery drawings are open to the public for viewing. If you are interested in attending a mid-day or nightly drawing to observe the drawing process, please contact us at least 24 hours before the drawing, and we will make Security arrangements for you to attend.

When making a Lottery purchase, it is important to check your tickets carefully before leaving the Lottery terminal to make sure the tickets received are correct. If an error is discovered at the time of purchase, speak to the Retailer immediately.  

Scratch game tickets must be claimed within 180 calendar days from the official announced end of game date.  Select a game listed in the SCRATCH section of our website and it will tell you if a game end date has been established. Click here for the SCRATCH GAMES TABLE.   (Please note, if a Scratch game has ended, and is past the last day to claim a winning ticket, the game will no longer appear among the games listed on this website.)

You can find this information on our website in the SCRATCH game section, or you can ask any CT Lottery Retailer for a "Remaining Top Prizes" terminal report.

The odds of winning Scratch games vary.  If the odds of winning a game are 1 in 4, that doesn't mean that every fourth ticket purchased will be a winner.  Overall odds are based on the entire quantity of tickets printed for the specific game indicated.  The odds are calculated by taking the total number of tickets printed, divided by the number of winning tickets. The winning tickets are randomly distributed, therefore it is possible to purchase several tickets without having a winning ticket, just as it is possible to have multiple winning tickets in a row.

Overall odds simply tells players their average chance of having a winning ticket.  For example, if a game has odds of 1 in 4, that means for all of the tickets in the entire game, there will be one winning ticket per every four tickets. However, because prizes are distributed randomly throughout the entire game, it does not mean that there will be a winning ticket every 4th ticket.
Scratch tickets are produced and distributed using a completely random, double-blind system.  First, the ticket vendor (printer) randomly scatters prizes throughout the game's entire print run using a random number generation system. No one, not the Lottery or even the ticket vendor, knows where the winning tickets are placed or when wins will occur.  Next, tickets are shipped to our warehouses in packs for distribution.  Ticket packs are pulled from inventory at random, and shipped to Retailers at random, as ordered.
The reason it seems as though some locations have more winners is simply a matter of luck and sales.  If, for example, more tickets are purchased in Fairfield County it would follow that more total winners would be located in Fairfield County.  And those Retailers who sell a lot of tickets will have a greater likelihood of getting a pack with a winner in it - just because they sell that many more tickets and have to replenish their inventory more often with new ticket packs.
For game security and integrity, the CT Lottery is prohibited from researching requests from the public as to where specific active Scratch ticket books are located within the Retailer network.  This is to ensure a fair and equal chance of winning for all who play our Scratch games.
From time to time, the CT Lottery offers Scratch games with a 2nd Chance Drawing opportunity.  To see a list of those games, please visit the 2ND CHANCE DRAWINGS section on our website.
The cash option is a one-time, lump-sum payment that winners may choose instead of receiving their winnings in a designated number of annual, monthly or weekly payments.
The decision to end a Scratch game is made based on ticket sales and available inventory.  The CT Lottery ends ticket sales when the last top prize in a game has been claimed or when all warehouse ticket inventory has been exhausted. The Lottery may also end a game if ticket sales are lacking so that it may be replaced with a game that customers find more appealing.
The CT Lottery works within the international Lottery industry and relies on suppliers within the industry for its game designs.  Individuals who are interested in putting forth new games should consult with industry experts.  To protect your product or intellectual property you should also seek appropriate legal advice from a professional.  The CT Lottery does not compensate individuals for game ideas or designs that are submitted for consideration.  Any ideas submitted become the property of the CT Lottery.
