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. The newest and latest to come to Massachusetts is the $50 Billion Dollar Extravaganza game. So, you have to make sure you’re updating your list each month because odds can change month to month, meaning the ticket that could be the best odds of winning one month may not be the best odds of winning the next. This list is up to date and current. These are the 8 Massachusetts scratch tickets with the best overall odds of winning in December.
