The Tennessee Lottery isn’t a great source for Instant Game data, but we can still work with what they do publish.   They publish prizes remaining for the Top 3 prizes for every game and they have one of the strangest policies we have found from lotteries across the country:  The TN lottery reserves one top prize from each game for a “Play it again” or a “Second chance” drawing.  This means they’re reserving one top prize for every game for only their VIP rewards members.

ScratchSmarter does not consider these ‘reserved’ prizes winnable at the time of picking a ticket in the store. While the TN Lottery clearly states this pollicy at the top of their Prizes remaining page, they still publish prizes remaining like you could buy a ticket and win that top prize in the store. Yes, that one reserved top prize is still available to win, but you, as a lottery player, have to buy a ticket, lose and then submit your losing ticket to the lottery via their VIP rewards program to be entered into a drawing to win it. Oddly enough, at the time of this writing, we can’t find any information on the TN lottery website about how the second chance drawing are run, managed and reported on to the general public. There appears to be not over site of these drawings and limited information on the TN Lottery website.

Their FAQ page states:

  • How often will Play It Again! Drawings be held?Several factors determine the Play It Again! Drawing dates of games, therefore, the drawing dates cannot be scheduled in advance. These drawings usually take place three (3) times per calendar year. Once a drawing date is scheduled, the date and other details, such as the deadline for entries and the games included, will be announced and posted on our websites.

In other words, the TN lottery will decide if and when a “play it again drawing” will actually happen for any particular game…..but trust them, they’ll tell you if and when you win…..ok, we believe them. Ok, we don’t! We know every lottery across the country pulls games early to keep top prizes from being awarded. Why in the world would we trust the TN lottery to actually give out the last top prize through an unregulated, unscheduled raffle where there is no accounting or reporting of prizes to the public? Yes, they have plenty of press releases showing Play it Again raffles have been won by residents, but there is no published accounting of these drawings and there is no proof that a drawing is happening for every game.

With all of that said, ScratchSmarter is here to help you win more in TN. But because of the ‘reserved top prize’ for every game, we have to be smart in our analysis. We reduce the Top Prize remaining count by 1 for EVERY TN lottery instant game.  So, when you read our reports, we’ll always have one less top prize than the TN lottery website says is available.

Additionally, even though the TN Lottery website only published prizes remaining for the top 3 prize levels, our SmartFactor algorithm still works! We scrape this data into our database daily and track the Estimate % of tickets reamaining. While publishing results for only the top 3 prize levels isn’t great, our algorithm can easily estimate the percentage of tickets sold with this limited data set  for each game and create a SmartFactor rating to give you an UNFAIR advantage  – letting you focus you money on only the VERY BEST GAMES to Play!

Knowing the Top Prizes Remaining isn’t enough…..You need to know how many tickets have been sold!

Think about it – if you see 5 top prizes remaining, but there are 20,000,000 tickets still for sale – is that better than 2 top prizes remaining with only 100,000 tickets still for sale?

If you know the percentage of tickets remaining, you can count cards just like a professional black jack player! And that is exactly what our Best Games to Play reports tell you! We do the hard work…..gathering all of Tennessee Lottery game data every day, processing it and sorting the results to tell you exactly how the odds of winning a top prize has changed since the games launched! YES, the odds of winning a TOP PRIZE changes all the time for every game! We do the analysis for these updated odds to give you the edge when picking your games to play! We call it our Smart Factor & it allows us to rank all games from best to worst for the chances of winning a top prize! The higher the Smart Factor the more the odds have changed in your favor for winning a top prize!
