It makes me wonder, how many people have been ripped off, at this store.

    Sorry...I don't believe this....the store was already under investigation..I think they knew they were under investigation and changed their minds at the last minute and then reached out to try to find the winner..well..the planted winner...yeah right...

    Yep, I'm in agreement.  I Agree!

      I think you missed my point.

      i get it, who hands an unknown  prize value over, and why are they always broken checkers out there.

      2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

      keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

        Unbelievable!   How do you misread $75.00 from $75,000.00???

        You don't.

          It's a little embarrassing to have to explain something so simple, but here goes.

          The inspector didn't just happen to pull a $75000 ticket. The commission had this ticket made for the express purpose of testing a retailer. It was not a real winning ticket. It wasn't even a real ticket. It never was put out for sale.  Lottery commissions do this all the time to make sure retailers aren't stealing from customers. Which is a real good thing.

          I Agree! and while the average lottery player might not understand there is a different process for cashing tickets valued over $600 and another process for tickets valued over $5000, it was discussed many times on LP. Had the clerk scanned a valid $75,000, the terminal screen should say the ticket must be validated at a regional office or lottery headquarters. The screen should give instruction for filling out a claims form too.

          Apparently the value of the ticket was all that was shown on the screen which is odd because the clerk couldn't reach into the cash drawer and hand the player (investigator) $75 grand.

            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.

            It looks like you either missed the part where it was a SCRATCH-OFF TICKET or don't understand what a SCRATCH-OFF TICKET is.
