The higher the denomination the slot machine, the higher the payback percentage is usually. Is that also the case with lottery scratch-off tickets? Would a $20 ticket have a higher payback than a $1 ticket?
Probably, but you would still be a fool for buying scratch offs considering people have supposedly cracked the distribution algorithms for the large prizes. Don't buy them.
Most State scratch-off lottery tickets have the odds on the opposite side of the ticket, at least it has been that way in the states I have lived in (Illinois and Wisconsin)
Not all states are like this. Missouri and Georgia are just required to post the overall odds of winning, which tells you nothing. Illinois was about a ~64% return for the smaller games, iirc. Obviously didn't make a big habit out of playing those.
