Supermarket  White Bounce

I usually use convenience stores for mine because it's usually quicker.  Seems like when I go to supermarkets, they are so slow.  I've tried buying tickets at Albertson's and Winn Dixie and both customer service counters take a long time.  Winn Dixie has the slowest customer service counter I've ever seen.

I go to Circle K around the corner from my house and lately, I've been going to a convenience store and a gas station near work mainly for the tickets I'm buying with my coworker.

    the only thing i hate is when you get a clerk who acts like it pisses them off to have to run your tickets....

      I Agree! Like I should pay them for waiting on me.

        Supermarkets are the best for cashing bigger winners.

          I hate when you are only playing 1 number like 999 and they ask you to fill out a card so they won't make a mistake keying it in. 

          I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

              I usually buy my scratch offs, whenever I play them, at gas stations because they're quick. Maybe that's one of the reasons we don't have Winn Dixie anywhere around here anymore???

                  Some of our Winn Dixie stores are about to dissapear too.  They are closing a bunch of their stores because the company is restructuring.  The grocery industry here is taking a big hit from Super WalMart, and they don't sell lottery tickets(although our now defunct Super KMart did).

                  I still use supermarkets to cash some tickets.  I've won $50 a couple of times, so go to a supermarket to cash them since convenience stores don't keep a big amount in the register.  I once tried to cash a $20 ticket at Circle K and it wasn't easy because they didn't have it in the register.  Fortunately, the lady behind me in line was buying a carton of cigarettes and other stuff and used a $20 bill, which the clerk gave to me.

                  Next time I'll cash it at a supermarket.

                    I purchase my tickets from supermarkets to you name it. Used to drive a cab and purchased my tickets at dozens of places through out the state without any luck.  . Persistence and patience.

                      never go to a gas station they act like its a chore to do it. so i said to the clerk maybe the machines don't need to be there if its that big of a problem.
