What are the odds of winning Instant Scratch-Its?

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