We definitely see what you’re stating. The FL lottery website has an asterisk next to game # 1339 – $10,000,000 World Class CASH
Looking at their defining on the asterisk below states:
*Denotes games that have been reordered or have been delivered to the Florida Lottery in more than one shipment.
I’m underlining the second half of that statement because it isn’t truly a definition for a reprint if there is another possible meaning. This is just another SNEAKY SNEAKY TRICK that the lotteries play to try to minimize their risk in having to pay out top prizes.
We do not go by FL lotteries indication (their asterisk) for identifying reprints.
ScratchSmarter independently tracks ‘reprints’ by tracking when the lottery changes the number of top prizes remaining. For example, if one week we see the number of $1,000,000 top prizes for a game = 2 and the next week it goes up to 7, we automatically flag is as a reprint.
I would venture to guess that the game above has been ordered as a print job in multiple printings. This means that the FL lottery has requested that their scratch-off game vendor physically print the tickets in several batches. Most times the tickets are all printed in one batch and then distributed. In this case, they ordered one game in multiple batches and asked for delivery of the games to their warehouse in multiple shipments after each printing. The game specifications for the odds haven’t changed because they ordered a set number of tickets (for example 20 million tickets) with the odds being fixed over those 20 Million tickets. A reprint is when the total number of tickets has doubled, but so has the total number of prizes.
