    $12= TWL the only way you can win with an “L” in the code, almost threw one out when I saw the “L”

    • Big Fish
      10:13 AM on March 22nd, 2011

      I’ve added $12 to the page. The codes are not designed to eliminate the need to scratch the ticket. I would not recommend this method.

      I used to think the same thing but I won $2,000 and the code was LMN, which is always almost a loser.. I was hopin someone knows the codes for over 600 cause IM confused how I had that code on a winner

    I would have to say that it would be a good idea if the extended play tickets still have the codes.

    It’s easier to double-check a match-a-number for a winner than it is to double-check a cashword. Just look at the Casino Cashword, which uses no letters. Imagine the number of small winners that could be thrown out because people miss one letter on the puzzle.

    $21 = TON (Not used frequently except for some 7′s themed tickets)

    Money Match is a source of different codes — because the makeup of the game allows for prizes not commonly found in other games.
    I found one today
    2 Necklace ($40) + 2 Gift ($3)
    $43 = PZD

    Anything over $24 in New York has an entirely different method.

    If a ticket is $25 or more, the first letter will be Z (Zero), O (One), W (tWo), R (thRee), U (foUr) and V (fiVe). Then the next letter indicates the 10′s place, and the final letter represents the one’s place. Theoretically, “ZKA” means “000.”

    Here it is…

    $0 – Z
    $100 – O
    $200 – W
    $300 – R
    $400 – U
    $500 – V

    $10 – K
    $20 – L
    $30 – M
    $40 – N
    $50 – P
    $60 – S
    $70 – T
    $80 – X
    $90 – Y

    $0 – A
    $1 – B
    $2 – C
    $3 – D
    $4 – E
    $5 – F
    $6 – G
    $7 – H
    $8 – I
    $9 – J

    So $40 would be ZNA; $165 would be OSF; $250 would be WPA, and $599 would be VYJ. A losing ticket or anything over $600 would likely have two or more letters in the same column (so MLN would likely fit into this pattern as a losing ticket). The only exceptions are $50 (FTY, not ZPA), $100 (HUN, not OKA) and $500 (FVH, not VKA).

      please then explain $25 being FMZ or ZFM makes absolutely no sense

    • Kelly
      10:29 AM on August 29th, 2012

      some of the letters must be off in your calculation as I just won $30 and the code was “ZAN” and I know that “ZAP” is $40.

    • mike e
      10:27 PM on September 7th, 2012

      looks like it should have read:

      $00 – K
      $10 – L
      $20 – M
      $30 – N
      $40 – P
      $50 – Q
      $60 – S
      $70 – T
      $80 – X
      $90 – Y

    Can someone tell me why there is NO letter code on the new NY scratch offs “PAY ME!” and “MILLION DOLLAR MONEY STACK”? Never seen this before.

    • Steve
      4:18 PM on August 19th, 2013

      That’s a new trend to get people to scratch off the ticket. I read recently that NY has over $28 million in uncollected winnings. I had a Black Diamond winner for $2000 with a code P-L-Y, next time I had a BD loser with a code P-L-Y!!! Play the game!!!!!!!

    I read in a local paper that a big prize winner ($300K) said that the code on his ticket was P-A-Y… I wonder if this holds true for anything over $600 that has to be brought to a redemption center.

    @Jamie, I have never seen any NY scratch off ticket that lacks a 3 letter code…. scratch it bare and check all the fields, they are not always in the payout field and some tickets have the letters in the game field. Good Luck!

      Non of the new scratch off games come with codes. So i advice you scan until it say winner if you’re not sure.

      3:08 PM on April 11th, 2015

      Actually a few of the newer tickets in new York do not have codes on them at all… It’s dumb… I know that one example is a 3 dollar to key… Not sure if it’s the 3 dollar cash word or a different one. I work at convenient store and have seen and played many tickets.

    I just scratched a MORE CASH, PAY ME and MILLION DOLLAR MONEY STACK. None of these tickets had a code anywhere on the face of the ticket. This is so odd and does it mean anything?

    • Rich
      11:00 PM on October 10th, 2013

      It does appear as if the lottery is starting to phase out lottery validation codes, win or lose. You may want to hold onto tickets without codes and take them to a scanner for verification.

    The same thing happened to me Flo…I just came online to see why the More Cash ticket I scratched has no letters….I’m very familiar with the code letters for 20 years, and I find it odd that there aren’t any on this ticket….thinking it’s a fake!!

  37. Reply to this comment
    10:36 PM on October 2nd, 2013

    No letters required – see the 2011 post above about the Casino Cashword ticket. If I remember correctly, the odd shape of the play areas on those (they resembled the suits of cards) left little room where ther letters would have fit without conflicting with the letters for the puzzle.

    I think that was the only one until the current ones without them.
    Perhaps now that all the tickets have the bar code you can scan to check them (so you know if they win or not) they figure the letters are not as needed (though keeping them on the Bingo, Cashword etc. type tickets would be handy for a quick double check).

    They no longer have the codes, it’s not a fake if you’re worried about that I work for a noco gas station, and even the new 2 dollar version of the win for life doesn’t have any 3 letter code. But you can always get a lottery inquiry check done to just see if it is a winner good luck.

    They have retained the letter codes for Bingos, Cashwords and Keno games. (Perhaps others, too) These are games where you really need them unless you’re prepared to spend 10 minutes or more triple checking every combination.
