What are the Best Idaho Lottery Scratch Games?
At Lotto Edge, scratch offs are kind of our thing. Our goal is to analyze scratch off data DAILY for every prize in every game!
However, the Idaho Lottery does not provide us with enough information to run our thousands of calculations and provide our members with our full list of game rankings.
Fear not though. We DO have a full list of scratch games ranked by the best overall odds of winning.
We’ll stay on top of things and if the ID Lottery provides access to additional information, you can bet we’ll expand our game rankings to help you even more.
Want some tips on playing the Idaho Lottery?
Our team of experts love sharing advice for playing the lottery.
Let us know your own tips for playing!
TIP #1: VALIDATION RECEIPTS
It’s a good idea to ask for a validation receipt when redeeming a winning ticket. The receipt will verify the amount of your winnings.
TIP #2: USE THE ENTIRE DRAWING SLIP
When playing draw games with a large selection of numbers, select numbers from the entire play slip. Players often only play birthdays or anniversaries. Doing this limits your numbers to just 1 to 31 instead of using the whole play slip.
TIP #3: BE WEARY OF WINNING GUARANTEES
If any lottery “system” or person guarantees you a lottery win, RUN. We have yet to find a reliable and consistent method for winning draw games.
TIP #4: PLAN AHEAD
Lottery winners in the state of Idaho are considered public record so you cannot remain anonymous. Plan ahead since people will find out your identity and how much you won.
