Obamacare will be making direct withdrawals from your bank accounts next year anyway.

And the IRS is in charge of the whole shootin' match so Conservatives will pay extra.

So it really don't make no nevermind what you do to protect your info now.

The IRS and Obamacare are comin'.

And Hell's comin' with 'em.

They will first need a major crisis in order to do away with term limits.

      From the OP:

      "Spokesman Gary Gonder says 70 percent of lottery players pay for their gas at the pump."

      The 70% that pay at the pump are obviously walking in to play the tickets, it it's running don't fix it.

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      Lep

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

        Capital idea!

        Let's get the clerks totally out of the process!

        I Agree!

            I thought they won't let you buy a lottery ticket with a card (debit or credit) since there is a fee associated with the card that the lottery doesn't want to pay.

            where I live in NC, there are stores that will let you use a debt card to purchase scratchers or draw tickets. just as long it's a debt card.

                Anything that draws people inside is a money maker for the store.

                  I agree - stay OFF the grid.  I bet the link to your bank account is an attempt to prevent underaged teens from playing.  That kid that is just old enough to drive, or any passenger that might be underaged and their pal is letting them pay. Without the electronic tie in, it would be like the cigarete machines where we used to step inside the door of an establishment, buy a pack real quick and dash.  Do you have to also buy gas to play?

                  Seems so simple: three digits, 168 to one odds when boxed... all you have to do is pick the right ones!

                    I thinks its just pay and play. It would be the same as adding card readers to existing vending machines.

                        My store has a free standing scanner and the vending machine scans, so I have 2 options. Wink

                            We replaced Bank Tellers with ATM's and adapted to it.

                            And Bank Tellers were considerably more intelligent than Convenient Store Clerks and much less likely to try and rip people off.

                            So why couldn't we replace Lottery Clerks with ALM's (Automatic Lottery Machines)?

                            We don't need no stinking clerks.
