The lotteries like stories like this one because after players read it they are less likely not to buy their misprints and it proves to retailers that adsorbing the cost of the misprints is not only good customer service but can pay off for them sometime also.  However if their workers are allowed to take the winning misprints and stick them with just the losers then this isn't true.

      I buy my mistakes...(I am a clerk.)

      Even the customers mistakes..

      One day a customer will have to split their winnings with me... because they refused to pay the extra dollar for the mistake of not marking mulitple plays..

        One thing this article didn't make clear is that Maverik has a policy in it's employee handbook that the employee who made the mistake is financially responsible for reimbursing the store for the ticket.

        Now, the Statesman article says Maverik Corporation claims to have eaten the cost on a great number of these tickets.  However, I remember going into a Jacksons store and a clerk begging me to buy a $5 ticket one of her customers had rejected.  She said her store required her to buy these tickets, and was nearly in tears, said she couldn't afford to buy another lottery ticket.  So, if the attorneys for the clerk who misprinted the ticket can prove that Maverik has ever required an employee to pay for a rejected ticket, I think that clerk may have a case.

        I Agree!

        When I use to travel to Ga to get lottery tickets Just across the line on 95 I have had the clerk ask me if I wanted to buy some already printed. I said sure, they were quick picks on a lotto game.

        I have seen customers at one time or another ask for quick pick tickets. They get the tickets and look at them and I seen one customer say he did not like the numbers on the quick pick and handed them back to the cashier. What a crock that is. You buy quick picks you take what you get.

          I could NEVER see myself handomg back lottery tickets before the drawing.  I'd have to live with it for the rest of my life if I gave a winning ticket back to the clerk before a drawing.  Thats just nuts.
