That's the one I go to, and never bought there for the same reason, till they got the vending machine.  The only problem I've had at the machine is with scratch off players hogging it.  Some of them stand in front of it and quickly scratch off the code and if it's a winner they scan it again to apply the $$$ to their balance, then buy more tickets one at a time and scratch the codes till they get another winner.  As long as they have a balance in the machine, it's hard to cut in.  I'm not impatient either.  Big Smile

    Hey - I shop there regularly!  In fact, I was just there.  And yes, I have used that vending machine, mostly for when I'm in a superstitious mood and I want to buy a ticket at 11:11 am.  That's just a weird thing I do once in awhile, usually on a Sunday morning.   And that's when I'm *hoping* there are no scratch-off buyers standing there hogging it!  Cos yeah... ya know. 

    So if you're ever near the vending machine at 11:11 am and there's some lady with multicolored hair and sunglasses hogging it, you'll know it's me.   Just be polite and tell me to shove off.... and I'll know it's you.  Wink

            Admittedly it may not be the safest place, but after I buy tickets I put them in my car's glovebox in a plaster folder. Every single time. At least I know where they are. And they get checked within 2 days max of whatever drawing they're for. Don't do many scratchoffs, but they get checked immediately, often before I leave the store.

              Because some people receive tickets as gifts.

              Is it just me? That is one item  I refuse to give as a gift. God forbid it is a million dollar winner. Now you just gave your blessing away.Roll Eyes

                The Idaho Lottery should allow players to register, if would winners get their prizes.

                We all get a lot out of lotteries!
