odds of winning on an 
Instant Scratch-Its ticket

These are overall odds based on the total number of tickets available for sale in a game, not on an individual purchase. While the odds of winning a prize on Instant Scratch-Its® are generally 1 in 4, this does not mean that if four tickets are purchased one has to be a winner. All prize amounts (including the top prize) are only available until won. This may occur prior to all tickets in a game being sold.
