Lottery can win you a lot of money, but a lot of people aren’t aware that there’s a scratch off version of the lottery where you can win instantly. Some of the best scratch offs you can buy are florida lottery scratch offs. Tickets cost from $1 to $30 and there are several different prizes, such as $200,000 a year for life, $5,000,000, even $15,000,000. These are prizes that aren’t at all behind the standard state lottery draws, so it makes sense to buy a scratch off card whenever you have an extra few bucks.
If you want to increase your chances of winning, or/and get the best value, you’ll look at how often is the jackpot awarded and when was the last time it was awarded. Also, a $1 investment to win $5 million is better than a $1 investment to win $1 million. Not that you’d mind winning $1,000,000 at all, it’s just that in the long run expenses will pile up as you’ll probably need to buy many lottery tickets before you win, so it makes sense to go with a larger jackpot – though some players choose to play the less popular games in order to have less competition for the jackpot. That approach is also a good one.
Crucially, since each scratch off has a certain number of jackpot prizes and at all times you can see how many are remaining, you can immediately know is it worth playing that particular scratch off or not. For example, if there were 6 jackpots and 4 are remaining then it’s good investment, but if there is only 1 jackpot remaining then your chances to win are much lower.
Types of Florida scratch offs
There are too many different Florida Lottery scratch off cards to list them all. When it comes to $1 cards, there are almost 20 different types, and it’s usually pocket money, though some of the scratch offs carry really nice prizes such as $500 per week for life. Other $1 scratch off jackpots peak at $10,000 or less, so the prospect of getting $26,000 per year – for life – is the best one of the bunch.
There’s an almost identical scratch off for $2 where you win $1000 per week for life, but there are other cards in this range that also look good as the prizes are very much increased compared to the $1 cards. Unlike the $1 cards that usually peak at $10,000, the $2 cards jackpots peak at $50,000 and there’s several scratch offs with that kind of a prize.
The best card that can be bought, at least in terms of jackpot, is the $15,000,000 Gold Special, and it’s one of two cards that cost $30. This scratch off offers incredible value, but of course, it will take a substantial investment to stand any reasonable chance of winning the jackpot. The odds to win are 1 in 6.5 million, so with seven cards – $210 – they become one in a million. These odds aren’t bad at all, it’s just that it takes quite a bit of money to play. But on the other hand, not many people play this scratch off card compared to the $1 cards which are the most popular.
Have fun and good luck!
