Lottery Myth vs Lottery Fact: Lucky Retailers

There are some retailers who say they’re the luckiest.  There are players who say their retailer is the luckiest. The truth is, your odds are the same no matter where you play.

There is a correlation between the number of tickets sold and the number of winners. A retailer that has a high volume of sales will naturally have more winning tickets.

Retailers in metropolitan areas may sell more tickets simply because there’s a larger population and more people buying tickets.

For example, if Cuyahoga County sells 15 percent of our tickets for a specific game, they have 15 percent of the winning tickets for that game.  

Check out the map below to see the average scratch-off sales per retailer per week by county.

Bottom line, no matter where you buy, every ticket has an equal chance of winning.
