I’ve talked about this before, when I play scratch offs, I play to win big. But some of the games at the counter have all their big winners gone. Do you know? The gas station attendant in Fort Myers can’t tell you. But the information is available on the Florida Lottery website. The Florida Lottery has a lot of different scratch offs with winners from all over the state. But only 2 of those scratch offs have all of their big winners still out there. So you want to play a scratch off game that no one has won big with (yet)? Well, here they are.
Ticket Price: $10.00
Launch Date: April 10, 2023
This $10 ticket has been in the wild for nearly a month and has eight $2 million dollar prizes. All 8 of them are still out there. There are twenty of the $100,000 prizes, and 3 people have claimed those.
$1,000,000 A YEAR FOR LIFE SPECTACULAR
Ticket Price: $50.00
Launch Date: February 27, 2023
That ticket really does say $1 Million A Year For Life. This $50 ticket is going to make a lot of people rich. But at $50 a card, it better. There are 234 (!) one million dollar prizes. 30 of those have already been claimed including one person in Lehigh Acres and another in Naples. The 2 cards that win $1 mil a year for life? Those are both still out there.
New List: Florida Lottery Scratch Off Tickets You Might Want To Avoid
I love reporting on big wins when people hit jackpots on Florida Lottery scratch off tickets. I want that to be me! So when I was at Publix in Fort Myers last night I went to the Florida Lottery machine and fed it 20 bucks. Hey, if you want to win 5 million you got to bet big. I pressed the button with the most eye catching 20 dollar ticket and took it home. Guess what? I didn’t win. And I found out later that I probably wouldn’t. You see, the Florida Lottery tracks all of the winning tickets on their website and of the 8 – 5 million dollar winning tickets, 7 of them were already gone. I should have gone with a different ticket to have better odds.
Unfortunately for us, buying scratchers can be a bit of an impulse buy. “I like this one”. But you should really treat it as a financial decision. It is money we’re trying to win. Please keep in mind I’m not telling you which tickets you should play, or if you should play at all. You do you. Just because a ticket only has one big winner left doesn’t mean it’s not sitting in a counter at a gas station in Lehigh. The fact is, we don’t know. This is just math.
Take for instance the $50 – 500X the cash in the picture.
There’s two $25 million dollar grand prize tickets. A guy in Bonita Springs claimed one of them, so there’s still one out there. Of the 160 $1 million dollar prizes, only 19 remain. Two of those winners were announced this past week.
So with the help of the Florida Lottery website, let’s discuss which scratch off tickets you might want to avoid if you’re looking to hit it big. What fun is it to play if you can’t win big? Also, we’ll take a look at which scratch off games have the most big winners left in the pot. You want to win big and get that Lambo? Let’s do this.
This list is from 5/3/2023. As more winners happen, and more games are announced, this data will become outdated.
