Estimated Overall Odds 1 in 3.75

Overall odds apply to the total number of tickets printed for a particular game, not to a consecutive string of tickets. The overall odds of winning a prize are established when a game is printed and are calculated by dividing the total number of tickets printed by the total number of prizes available.

Any of the prizes listed above may have already been purchased, but not yet claimed. Total prizes may not yet be available for sale in retailers, including prizes within a reorder.
