CA Lottery - California Love - CA Lottery Scratchers
Sorry for the confusion, I meant to say that the requirements to be considered a Lucky Retailer has been lowered this year. On the website there will be more retailers popping up as a Lucky Retailer. Prior to the change, a Lucky Retailer is a retailer that has sold at least 2 $1 million prizes in the form of draw games or scratchers. Now it is a retailer that sold at least 1 $100,000 prize or average $4000 a week in prizes or 400 winning tickets. http://www.calottery.com/lucky-retailers/lu ...

It is a distinct honor to even be a retailer of the year regardless when it happened. People will flock over to lucky retailers such as Bluebird Liquor (since this year, they lowered the requirements) and play there. The profit margin must be decent. Thanks for all the heads up from what you see from the retailer side. For scratchers since the 2nd Chance or Replay system came out, I've always entered a ticket code on the system to verify every ticket. Although it is already smart to enter all ...

Egg on my face, it must have been 2007. I tried searching their Youtube account and it's not there. We put up a little poster in our shop to commemorate the occasion. We should be getting the new games anytime now, either today or tomorrow would be my best guess. Depends on whenever the UPS guy decides to show up and deliver it. As for mistakenly throwing away winning tickets. I always tell my players to check their tickets before tossing them. Even if you think it's a non-winner. I can't ...

Hi CAScratcher20, With regards to not being able to order anymore $5 Million scratchers, that is not true. Only 10 of 14 top prizes have ben claimed thus far. When the final top prize is claimed for any given game, an order goes out to all retailers to pull all existing packs that they have and to not sell anymore. At which point, the retailers lottery rep will come by and pick up the packs. Now, do all retailers abide by this rule to pull them right when they get the order? Sadly the answ ...

S.C. Lottery to honor 2 sets of Pick 3 numbers
If the 367 was the number drawn why do players have to mail it in? Why can't the retailers pay out for both numbers? IMO if the 367 was drawn, then that is the winning number regardless of what the auditor said. How do you certify the wrong number? The auditor screwed up plain and simple by certifying the wrong number. Why should the players be penalized by having to mail it in and wait for their winnings?

From what I heard, becoming a retailer requires having a good amount of upfront funds to reap the benefits over time. They intake 6% from each dollar of all lottery products they sell, not too big of a profit margin unless it is a $10 or $20 scratcher. Retailers buy rolls of scratchers at 6% off and they have to send 94 cents for each dollar sold on a draw game. They get reimbursed 1% for the amount they cash out that is under the taxable value of $600. It comes at a cost of $24 a week. ...

Take this for what it's worth. One of the stores I would purchase lottery tickets at no longer sells them. The owner said that he had annual sales of more than $300,000 but his bonuses from winning tickets was about $6,000 so it was no longer worth it to him to contine to sell lottery tickets and scratchers. So according to this retailer no one was winning and he wasn't seeing the expected bonus from selling winners.

Why Americans Will Quit ( Gambling ) Playing The Lottery?
Even though I saw the transaction, I still don't believe it's legal to buy lottery tickets using an EBT card. I never saw the law where buying lottery tickets with a debit or credit card is illegal, but a small store owner told me he didn't because of his cost. Many smaller stores have minimum limits for using debit cards. From the PA Lottery: While the Lottery discourages retailers from accepting checks and credit cards as a form of payment for Lottery tickets, it is ultimately up to each ...

What in your estimation was the best or worse advice you received. .
Bad advice don't play that number no one is seeing it in their workouts or play that ticket no one ever hit it any way. Don't buy the tickets other players reject because they feel the retailer mess- up their numbers when they are one who calling out the numbers to the clerk with a long list. Best lottery advice, follow your own mind!
