Scratch Off game odds are almost always better than draw games. However, unlike draw games, the odds to win bigger prizes can change daily based on ticket sales and prize claims.

A lottery pool is a group of people who combine their funds to buy tickets and share any winnings among the group. On the plus side, you will have more chances at winning. The downside, you will have to split any winnings with the group.
TIP #3: SAVE YOUR LOSING TICKETS
Save losing lottery tickets to offset potential taxes on any winnings.
TIP #4: PLAN AHEAD
Lottery winners in Washington can claim their winnings using a trust to protect their identity. However, a public records request may reveal who formed the trust. Plan ahead since people will likely find out your identity.
