PRO TIP

Percentage of Prize Amounts Remaining

The estimated percentage of prizes still outstanding.  Calculated by dividing the dollar amount of prizes outstanding by the total total amount of prizes at the game launch.  For example, if $500,000 in prizes were remaining out of a total of $5,000,000 initial prizes, there would be only 10% of prizes remaining.

Estimated Percent Tickets Outstanding

The estimated percentage of tickets that remain unsold.

Adjusted Game Odds

Recalculates the odds of winning any prize that is greater than the price of the ticket. 

Many games artificially lower their overall odds by having lots of prizes that are a free ticket or "winning" the price of the ticket back.   This strategy removes those misleading "prizes" to show the true odds of winning.
