When I look up to find what remaining prizes are available on certain instant tickets, I'm puzzled. Are the number of prizes remaining for each ticket type based on actual tickets distributed to vendors? Or the total of ALL tickets printed for the game, including those tickets in the lottery's possession and not yet distributed to vendors? And does the lottery distribute ALL instant tickets to stores for each game, or is there a certain percentage of tickets printed, but NEVER sold or distributed to vendors? If so, what might an average percentage be in those instances?
