A woman in eastern Iowa recently contacted us because she thought something was wrong with the scratch tickets she bought at three different stores. The tickets, as you can see in the photo here, are all in the “Jumbo 7s” game.
At each store, the woman just happened to get ticket No. 14, and she thought that meant she’d gotten the same ticket repeatedly, rather than three different chances to win. It was an interesting coincidence for sure, but she did, indeed, buy three different tickets.
Tickets in our scratch and pull-tab games are distributed in packs, and each ticket is individually numbered so it can be tracked and identified. In this player’s case, she just happened to get ticket No. 14 in the packs that were available at the time she stopped at each store.
Who knows? Maybe it’s a sign that 14 is her lucky number!
