Which Arizona Lottery Game Has the Best Odds of Winning?

By Staff WriterLast Updated Mar 26, 2020 1:03:42 PM ET

Of the eight games offered by the Arizona Lottery, Scratchers feature the best odds for the player to win, according to the Arizona Lottery website. Scratchers, a type of instant-win game, are offered in denominations of $1, $2, $3, $5, $10 and $20.

The odds of winning a prize with Scratchers increases as the ticket price increases. It is important to note that while Scratchers present the best overall odds to win a prize, it does not necessarily mean that the odds for winning a prize printed on a ticket are guaranteed. A ticket listing that the odds of winning any prize is 1 in 4 does not mean that every fourth ticket is a winner. All tickets are printed at random; as a result, strings of winning and losing tickets are common.
