That's why convenience store owners would give their left arm to have a big winner in their store. Players will flock there, and will do so loyally for years. And the more people who go there, the better the chance of a repeat win. All the while, the commissions add up to big numbers -- with NO OVERHEAD.
I tend to support the same. The problem, as some one mentioned in ,the state of Oklahoma, is that Mom & Pop cannot support anything larger then $5 and $10 winnings. Then they immediately revert to checks; which can take a month, or more, to receive. YOU must pay cash, so they immediately have the money in the drawer, but YOU must also wait until their accountant gets around to writing the monthly checks. How more Government can you get? Going to Mom & Pop, to buy a ticker, is convenient. Going to a major outlet, to collect, would also be a convenience. When I lived in NJ, I did it all time. If I have to pay cash to play, I want cash when I win! Jackpots don't effect the oayout from either Mom & Pop, nor Wally-Mart.
