Scratch tickets

Feeling lucky? Are you a gambler? Maybe you want to take a ride to your local casino. Here in Massachusetts there are a few like Encore Boston Harbor, Plainridge Park and MGM Springfield where you can press your luck. But maybe you don’t want to take a ride several miles to win some money. The key to winning some serious cash is right down the street at your local convenience store.

Scratch tickets are all the rage here in Massachusetts. Back in 2020, we spent the most money out of any state in the country on lottery tickets. The average lottery player in Massachusetts spent about $1000 annually, on tickets. That’s about $300 more than any state.
What if you knew going into that store which lottery ticket was going to win? That may take the fun out of gambling, but you’d be more apt to buy said ticket, correct? Well, that answer is right at the click of a button. The Massachusetts state lottery has a website where they literally put the odds of winning on each ticket. Knowing this information should make you better informed before buying your next ticket. That is, if you want to win.

Odds of winning are typically printed on the back of each lottery ticket. But we are going to do the work for you. Now, as you know, new tickets are being introduced each month. AND they also tell you which grand prizes haven’t been claimed yet. So, you have to make sure you’re updating your list each month because odds can change month to month. These are the tickets with the best odds AND ALL of their grand prizes are still unclaimed!

  • 300X

    A fan favorite. This is my personal favorite scratch ticket. Odds of winning are 1 in 2.77. It’s a $30 ticket and the grand prize is $15,000,000 ($750K/YR/20YRS). There are 3 grand prizes. ALL 3 are still available.

  • $10,000,000 Cash Blast

    This is a $20 ticket. Odds of winning are 1 in 2.93. The grand prize is $10,000,000 ($500K/YR/20YRS). There were 3 grand prizes to start and there are 3 remaining. 

  • $4,000,000 Monopoly Doubler

    This is a relatively newer ticket. Odds of winning are 1 in 3.48. It’s a $10 ticket. The grand prize is $4,000,000 ($200K/YR/20YRS). It started with 4 grand prizes. All 4 are still unclaimed.

    This is a $10 ticket. Odds of winning are 1 in 3.47.  The grand prize is $4,000,000 ($200K/YR/20YRS).  It started with 3 of them. All 3 are unclaimed. 

  • Lifetime Millions

    This is the new $50 ticket. Odds are 1 in 4.10. The grand prize is $1,000,000 A Year For Life. There are 3 of them and all 3 are unclaimed. Understandable because the ticket was just introduced this month.
