    everyone I know still plays 95% of their money of pick 3....

    a little powerball...

    hardly any scratch off's

    I've seen clerks take scratch-off tickets from the roll without paying for them.When they lose they just take another & another & another until they win enough money to pay for the tickets that were losers.Eventually they take to many and it catches up to them & they either get fired or arrested or both.I don't think that employees should be allowed to play the lottery at the store they work at while on duty.

      nc stated they had record amounts of revenue.... i do agree with jasonnc on this on... if you are having record amounts of revenue, where are the payouts? b/c there are none.....

      as far as cheating goes, my opinon will change from day to day....

      someone also stated nc is notorious for repeats... that also seems fishy to me.... it is a random game, but shouldn't other number have a random oppurnity to fall also....

      the balls could be weighted down.... maybe?

      as far as them prerecording drawings and playing them back as live drawings, i do not believe that is happening....

      something else is though...

      it states on the nc website over 918 million transferred to education funds... that was months ago... i am sure it is up 2 over 1 billion now

      that's why the nc family thinks something is wrong... record number amounts of revenue with low payouts

      JordanT1021, the balls were weighted down in PA way back in the late 70's or early 80's.  I was living in NJ at the time.  So it is possible.  They put whilte liquid die in the balls and the number that hit that day was 666.  That's how they got busted.

          I Agree!  I look forward to online lotto purchases, then if someone doesn't like a particular lottery they have a choice of where to spend their money.

          Good luck to everyone!

            You are right and they shouldn't be allowed to play scratch offs while on duty and at the store where they work.  I worked at a lottery place years ago and that was how the rules went.  She had to stop the employees because they were racking up.They played on "credit" from their paychecks until they got a good hit on the scratchers and then they would pay back what they owed and pocket the rest of the money and wait for the next "sucker' to start buying from a new roll of tickets.  They knew approximately where the winner would be located in the roll.  They even kept a cheat sheet to tell them what part of the roll the last winner had come from.  I was amazed.  They knew all of the prize amounts, etc. so they knew what they were trying to win.

            If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

            You never know when you will get another hit.

              Another nail in the coffin that goes agaibacknst NC palyers - There aren't any readable codes on the scratchers, therefore you can't verify whether or not you have a winner... I can't see all that well - and this is certainly a stab-pin-the-back... That's why I prefer scratching in VA at least it will give me a comforting code TWY = $20, TWF = $25, FTY = $50, HUN = $100, etc. etc.

              WHERE ARE MY CODES NC???

                I thinking that maybe, just maybe they found a way to see what's under the painted area.  Maybe they are using Infared light, Blue light, x-ray or something that can see through the paint. Just a thought.

                Play to win!

                  I just don't understand why it is allowed, littloldlady.  That's why companies won't allow employees to play in their sweepstakes. It leads to dishonesty and cheats.

                  I guess as long as the "suckers" continue to play and NC rack up the profits it will never change.  I guess they can care less who's winning as long as they get their profits.

                    They probably scan the tickets in the lotto machine before stocking it in the bin next to other tickets to see if its a winner & how much the prize is, then document it on a notepad to remind themself or other employee that when such and such ticket comes up to buy it theirself.

                      I live in South Carolina...I know of cashiers that keep a tally of the rolls that are winning batches.  Also, it's ALWAYS the same darned clerks that win big prizes all the time.  I see them repeatedly listed as winners and they brag about it.  Some rolls are winning tickets others are not....if they know u well enough and like u, they will tell you.  I've known others to lie as well.  For instance....she told a relative of mine to not buy from this batch because someone had just won 500 on it which means there's not another one in there.  Well, she didn't listen and bought it anyway....guess what....she won 200 bucks.  The clerk was trying to sway people away from what she wanted to buy when she got off from work.  She also had family members come visit at the store and they would "buy" them for her. 

                      Once clerk got fired for buying tickets while at work and winning all the time.  She went to the gas station a couple of miles down the road and kept winning there too.  Guess what...she finally hit the big one....100,000...and is now working at a different gas station.  So don't tell me something isn't up.

                        I myself had a winning jumbo ticket worth $1.000 and the clerk told me that this was not a winning ticket and this lady did not want to give my ticket back to me. I had to show anger to her to get my ticket back, this lady was trying getNo Pity! an opportunity to switch ticket I guest. Don't even let them touch your ticket if you win a cash prize that you have to take to the lottery office.

                          I agree. Although, I don't have a problem with clerks playing pick 3/5/6 games because there isn't really a way to cheat like there is with scratch off games. (Though, I'm not counting the ones who lie to customers about not having a winning ticket.)

                              I'm glad that someone shed light on this. I don't think store workers should be able to buy lottery tickets from the store they work in. I've seen many times where customers go in a store, buy 10 tickets from a roll and win nothing. Then the clerks/owners will buy the next 10 or so and win. One store I stood and watched this while waiting for someone. It pissed me off. I've even seen one lady writing down pick 3 numbers that customers are playing.

                              I really don't think that ncel will do anything about it!!

                              Yes the clerks at Food Lion do that all the time. Writing down the numbers especially if you a regular and win often.  I've heard them say that the regular winners are the numbers to play.

                              I don't think they should be able to buy at the establishment that they work at, I won't say that they are cheating just yet because if you play a lot then you will win, but let them just play at other stores to see if they are actually winning on their own luck.
