Now on one list, players can compare the remaining prizes in the top four prize levels of each game, along with the total cash prizes remaining for that game, with all other games that are currently selling in retail locations. For a more detailed comparison of this information, players also can choose to sort the list by game name, number, start date or ticket price.
"We’ve taken the information and presented it in a new way," said Gonder. "Now players can see in an instant, which games have just started selling, are no longer being distributed to retailers or are nearing their expiration date.
"Since as many as 30 to 40 games can be selling at one time, a Scratchers player who prefers to play $5 games, for example, can sort the list by ticket price. Once the page reloads, the list will be reorganized with all $5 games listed together for an easy comparison," Gonder said.
By clicking on the game names in this list, players are directed to a more detailed page about that specific game. Information on this page includes all prize levels listed for that game and corresponding remaining prize information, total cash prizes won and remaining for that game, how to play instructions, a graphic of the game ticket and average chances of winning a prize in that specific game. As prizes are claimed for each game-which for most of the newer games is almost daily-each page will show the day and time the information for that game was last updated at the bottom-left corner of the page.
"Among other state lottery Web sites, this is one of the most comprehensive lists available to Scratchers players," Gonder said. "We want to keep our players as informed as possible, and we feel the Web is an excellent way to do that."
