Most states provide this data for free. Why should I pay for ScratchSmarter?
Yes, most states do have this data for free on their website, but data is not information. It isn't analyzed, and you can't make a smart decision based on data alone. All data has to be analyzed to become actionable information!
Think about getting the temperature for where ever you are on any given day. You get the piece of data that says 65 degrees. That is just data. You have to decide if 65 is good or bad. If you're in Alaska, 65 is a HOT summer day! If you're in southern Florida, 65 is freezing.
The same goes for instant games. Knowing that a game is new is just a marketing ploy. Knowing that a game has 1 top prize left —is that good or bad? What if it has 5 top prizes left? These numbers are all relative — you need to analyze them to determine if 1 or 5 is good or bad, and that is all relative to how many tickets are left for that game. And, more importantly, its relative to all of the other games for sale that you can buy!
That is what ScratchSmarter does for you! We give you that analysis to tell you which games are statistically better to play in rank order, every week!
