Making ASSumptions like that doesn't doesn't give you a moral high ground to talk smack.  If you and your new buddy have a problem the way I am looking at things,  then tell us how the lottery inspector got a 75,000 ticket to investigate the place.

How could I have missed this gem...

" Then tell us how the lottery inspector got a 75,000 ticket to investigate the place"Can anyone help me out here with the answer anyone?

  I am going to take an educated guess and say: Since we know that he works for the lottery, l " think" they * Calottery... gave him the ticket. Where do you think he got the ticket Pick? Enlighten us ..

***l knew there was a reason l liked you.

    I Agree! This particular store is now on the radar as you said noise-gate. And others like it are shaking in their boots because any store can be tested at any time.

      We also know about retailers who cash in tickets that they have discounted. The profit motive is strong.

      The  California lottery should start a subscription service. It would be very  convenient and safer for players. It would also generate more revenue for the state.

      We all get a lot out of lotteries!

        Yes!! Finally someone else points it out.

        Since the California Lottery officials used a top prize ticket to this game to try to entrap this station manager then that prize is no longer available for the real players of the game what are they going to do about this?

        Watch out cbr$ my haters might not like you pointing that out.

        The ticket was fake and never part of the game. The lottery can program a terminal to recognize a ticket as a winner.

        (Not that my saying this would quell any conspiracy theories...to the contrary LOL)

        If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
        If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

          thanks for the update Todd.

          I want to know how a system can develop where a $75k prize can deliver $75 cash to a winner. surely there is tax implications.

          WTF is wrong with the state lotto to even allow  such a system to exist.

          as in the prompt on the screen should say,

          take $10 of customer for sales,. ,,,, pay 75 in prizes  or major prize, get divers licence and address for identity purposes.

           

          surly you have    tills that add and subtract  the balance from the float  as the day progresses, keeping tabs on what should be in the till at the end of the night?   no payout any cash should have ever been prompted.

          I think a solution exists to this problem.....glasses! Green laugh

            I think the cali  lottery  has some problems releasing a statement that they are looking for a winner and then saying it was an investigator........ this is so wrong !!!  one hand don't seem to have a clue what the other is doing.  something stinks here. What?

              The   ticket   was   not   real.

              It   was   never   put   out   for   sale.

              It   was   given   to   the   inspector   by   the   commission   to   test   the   retailer.

              It   was   not   meant   to   entrap   the   retailer.   But   to   see if   the   retailer   would   try   to   cheat   the    inspector.

              finally some one with a brain on here. Party

                Ok,  so if the lottery can program a terminal to recognize a ticket as a winner,  it makes me wonder what else they could do.

                    I Agree!, LottoMetro!  LOL.

                    Further, I think that this lottery retailer gang came up with a rather elaborate "damage control" saga!  However, I don't think all of this gang's creative 'thinking efforts' will keep the California Lottery Headquarters from shutting them down. This lottery retailer probably had received a few, prior, complaints from customers; which lead to the actual security official showing up to test the gang.

                          Do you believe everything the government tells you?   I can't believe people won't look into how the lottery inspector just happened to pull a big 75,000 ticket.      ( yes the clerk was in the wrong )  However it does put a spotlight on how the lottery investigation services came up with the ticket in the first place.
