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.)
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.
