massachusetts lottery scratch ticket codes

What are the winning and losing codes on a Massachusetts lottery scratch ticket?

I know that there isn’t a total rhyme or reason for EVERY code but does anyone know the more popular codes? thanks 🙂

I guess i didn’t properly ask my ? what i meant was. What do those three letter codes represent AFTER the ticket is scratched. Supposedly they stand for either the dollar amount that you won and/or reassure you that it is a losing ticket andit’s safe to throw it away. I would hate to have overlooked a winning ticket by mistake and throw it way. For example. I know that if the ticket is a $10 winner the code is T E N.

Honestly – it just doesn’t matter.

You are NEVER going to be able to beat scratch tickets through any sort of cheat. You are wasting your money and your time.

Know this – the lottery has a 50% take on all money they collect. In other words, for every $100,000 they collect from sales, they only pay out around $50,000 to winning tickets. At 50%, this makes playing the lottery the WORST bet you can possibly make.

Even if you figured out the codes enough to give you a 10% better chance than anyone else, (you can’t – but let’s pretend you can), you STILL wouldn’t have a good bet!
