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 support@scratchoff-odds.com 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!
