This might be a dumb question but how are scratchers distributed out after production?

Is it safe to say that all of a specific game’s tickets are all manufactured before they are sold to retailers? I can’t see another way around this since doing it in several batches would leave the possibility of having tickets circulating without all of the big prizes up for grabs. And exactly how are the tickets rolled out to retailers? I know stores have to order more rolls throughout the year. Where are they ordering from, where are those tickets held? How do they decide what rolls are to be made available first? Is there a way to know that all of the big prizes are available for purchase, and not just sitting in a warehouse somewhere until later in the year?
