          the winning Powerball ticket for Saturday's $338.3 million jackpot was sold at a liquor store in Passaic. The liquor store will receive a bonus of $10,000 for selling the winning ticket.

          I am sorry but $10,000 bonus is ridiculous. We have a lottery winner in CA who won merely $6.5 millions but the retailer from where the winner bought the ticket got $32,500 bonus check.

                    I like crown royal in the mini bottles with a 20 ounce of coke.  Congrats to the winner and the liquor store too.-weshar75

                      Surprise Me Ridge Runner!!!!!! Gosh Darn it I forgot there is no Lottery in Alabama. But hey I still may take a trip too a nearest corner liquor store. SmileI usually drive 45 minutes away to Pensacola. If I am feeling lucky I go to Casino in Biloxi. But needless to say  luck usually leaves upon arriving.

                        Found the Goolgle image. 

                        https://www.google.com/maps?

                        That picture makes me wonder if we could find out that lottery winners can go broke even after clearing more than $100 million.

                          That's a pretty fat paycheck for 30 seconds of work you were already paid for. Lottery retailers seem to be perfectly happy to sell tickets for a modest 5 to 7% commission, so I don't know why lottery commissions pay bonuses for selling big winners. Did the retailer do something to deserve more for selling this ticket than they did for any of the losing tickets they sold?

                              Pat Battle reporting for NBC was outside the Liquor Store and the winner is a Passaic bodega worker who was working all day and didn't realize the winning ticket was purchased at his regular lotto / liquor shop. He actually took out his ticket and gave it to the clerk to run through the machine and a jackpot message was indicated! I'm surprised no one followed him home....
