How Many Winning Tickets are in a Roll of Scratch-Offs? March 26, 2023

The number of winning tickets on a roll of scratch-offs is dependent on how much the ticket costs. If the roll costs more, there will be more winning tickets. What’s more, a roll of tickets usually does not have more than ten losing tickets in a row.

So, if a roll of scratch-offs has 200 tickets, there could be half as many winning tickets while the other half will be in the next roll of 200 tickets. However, in this example, there could also be many more winners in the first half of the roll. What’s more, your winning chances don’t change because of how the winning tickets are distributed in the roll.

Does Every Roll of Scratch-Offs have a Winner?

Yes, because with every roll of scratch cards, there is a guaranteed number of winners. However, the number of winners will differ depending on the kind of game. What’s more, it does not also mean that all the winners guaranteed on the roll will be big winners.

You will find that there are more $1 winning tickets than $500, $1000 or even jackpot winners. Based on the price of a scratch-off ticket, a roll can have between 15, 30, 60 and 150 tickets. Each roll can cost anywhere between $2, $5, $10 and $20.

Tips to Increase Your Winning Potential

Scratch cards are not a game of skill which means there are no specific strategies that can help you improve your chances of winning. However, there are always ways that you can improve your winning chances. Keep these tips in mind when you play your next scratch-off games.

  • Buy Smart – scratch cards come in different odds, and the price is inversely related to the tickets. So, cheap tickets will have low payouts, and expensive tickets will have high payouts.
  • Know the Odds – as we have mentioned, scratch-offs have their odds which differ per game. So, learn the odds and choose a game that gives you a better chance of winning.
  • Buy in Bulk – there are always several guaranteed winners in each roll of scratch-offs, so it wouldn’t hurt to buy more than one ticket. However, check which roll already has winners and go for ones that don’t have any.
  • Enter Second Chance Lottos – if you have a losing ticket, you can join the second chance lottery games where you get a second chance at winning. So, don’t throw away your losing ticket.
