There are currently 22 different $5 Texas Lottery scratch-off games in circulation. The top prize for most of those games is $100,000, although there are a few that have a top prize of $200,000.

All 22 scratch-off games have various levels of prize money left to win. But, if you're looking to avoid the game with the worst chance of winning the big jackpot, I have some news for you.

Do Not Buy This Ticket

The Holiday 7's game was introduced on October 30, 2023. The top prize is $100,000. So far, approximately 75-80% of all winning tickets of all prize levels have been claimed.

However, ALL five of the $100K tickets have been won. If you're hoping to score the top prize for this game, you are wasting your money. But, if you still want to spend $5 to win up to $1,000, give it a try.

The Texas Lottery website shows that this game will soon be pulled from circulation.

The Best $5 Scratch-Off To Buy

All other $5 Texas Lottery scratch-offs still have top prizes available. But, if you want to spend your money on the game that's tilting ever so slightly in your favor, this is the one to buy.

The Money Multiplier game was introduced in mid-September last year. Its top prize is $100,000.

So far, around 50-60% of the game's cash prizes ranging from $5 to $5,000 have been claimed. But, only 1 of the Money Multiplier's 6 grand prizes has been won. That happened in a store in Houston in October. There are still 5 of these $100,000 babies circulating out there.

This data from the Texas Lottery website mathematically means that out of all the $5 tickets available right now, this one gives you a slightly better edge at winning one of the big payouts.

Let's Talk About Perspective

Even though Money Multiplier is the best $5 ticket to buy, your odds of winning one of the five remaining $100,000 prizes are microscopic, at best. But, why not spend your $5 on a game that gives you a better big-money chance to win than all the others?

Oh, this game is also set to close soon, so don't wait too long to play the game.
