Fdj: What Are The Most Winning Scratch Games?

Among the scratch games offered by the Française des Jeux, there is a wide choice between Numéro Fétiche, Millionnaire, Astro, or Banco, for example. But did you know that all these games do not offer the same chances of winning? We invite you to discover which scratch games are the most profitable at FDJ.

What are the top 5 most winning scratch games?

If you're wondering which scratch game offers the best chances of winning, know that the specialized website jeu-grattage.fr has established a ranking for the year 2023.

Here is the top 5 of the most winning scratch games from Française des Jeux to date:

1- À prendre ou à laisser costs €5 and gives you a chance to win on 2.79. The probability of winning is 35.84%, which is the highest probability among all Illiko games from FDJ.

2- As de cœur costs €5 and offers a chance to win on 2.92, with a winning probability of 34.27%.

3- Méga mots croisés costs €10 and offers a chance on 2.93, with a winning probability of 34.05%.

4- Menez l'enquête costs €5 and offers a chance on 2.98, with a winning probability of 33.51%.

5- Numéro Fétiche costs only €2 and offers a chance on 3 to win, with a winning probability of 33.29%.

On the other hand, according to this ranking, the game Banco would be one of the least profitable as it only has 16.39% winning tickets, which reduces the chances of winning to one in 6.10...

Note: This ranking of the most winning scratch games from FDJ is based on a calculation of probabilities. In concrete terms, the mathematical formula used to calculate the overall probability of winning a game consists of dividing the number of winning tickets per ticket issuance by the total number of tickets per ticket issuance.

What does the ranking established by the Française des Jeux say?

You may not know it when you buy a scratch card from your tobacconist, but the Française des Jeux specifies on its website what the chances of winning are for each of the games it sells.

Note: according to the annual report of the Française des Jeux, the player return rate or TRJ was 68.4% for the year 2022. This means that, out of €100 wagered, an average of €68.40 was redistributed to players in the form of winnings, while FDJ won €31.60. Not surprisingly, the big winner of these games remains... the Française des Jeux itself!

Which games from the FDJ offer the best chances of winning?

In comparison, the odds of winning are much better with scratch-off games than with FDJ lottery games.

This is not surprising since the chances of winning a game of chance are generally inversely proportional to the amount of winnings. By choosing a lottery game with a drawing, you dream of winning the lottery or Euro million even though the chances of that happening are very slim...

If you play Euro million with a drawing in 9 countries, you have a 1 in 13 chance of winning a prize but only a 1 in 139 million chance of hitting the jackpot!

The odds of winning are (slightly) higher if you play the lottery in France. A classic Loto ticket gives you a 1 in 19 million chance of hitting the jackpot.

Even if you believe in luck or fate, now you can also rely on probability calculations to increase your chances of winning FDJ games!

And of course, don't forget that scratch-off games are exclusively reserved for adults as they involve risks of debt, isolation, and addiction. If you suffer from a gambling addiction and need help, you can call Joueurs info service at 09 74 75 13 13 (anonymous and toll-free call). This service is available 7 days a week from 8am to 2am.
