Other Ways To Beat Montana Scratch Offs

There are other ways to improve your odds.

Read one of the following articles that I wrote.

  • Keep buying from the same pack until you scratch a winner.
  • Stop buying from a pack after a big win has been claimed.

Montana has a contract with Intralot for ticket printing. If Intralot prints tickets the same way that IGT and Scientific Games prints tickets, then prizes aren't truly random.

There are clauses in the contracts that most states sign with their ticket printer. The clauses that give us an edge are the ones that say the following.

  • there can be no more than X number of consecutive losers
  • there can be no more than Y number of winners over $ZZ per pack

This site is shutting down soon. I don't have the time to maintain it or provide support, and it's costing too much money each month to run the servers. I have a friend who is considering taking over. If you want to see the site maintained, you can try talking them into it. Email and I'll forward them your message.

If you're looking for an alternative to this site, a web search will provide a few options on the first page of results. If you prefer this site over the alternatives, I'd be interested in hearing why so I can know what I did right.

If you're a data scientist and want a historical database of scratchoff data as reported by state websites, send me a link to some of the work you've done - your Github or whatever. You might be able to find some interesting anomalys and perhaps even discover possible fraud or exploitable patterns. (If you do, I want a cut.)

It's been fun. Good luck out there!
