As I finished my grocery shopping yesterday I noteced a NEW PA Lottery Self Serve machine.

The machine looks like you can play all your number games.

The machine was not online yet.

Anyone else from PA notice them.

    I played them. They are really cool. You can just put your money in, and go wild.

      JS9,

      You should do a search on the news forum.  There's a few articles posted about the new machines.

        We have talked and laughed about how neat it would be if we had a machine at the store for just the online games so we could do other work.. LIKE SCRATCHOFFS>>

        It would be nice to have a machine for those too.. and we could be where you collect the dough...

          GA has those machines.  I would say give TN a year or two and we'll have them.  ( I think the machines are the reason for all the retailers in GA).

          How are you going to win if you don't play?

              I have used them in Pa. They are not up and running all the time. And the scratch off are the high priced. I think you should be able to cash your winner in at the machine but I was told you can not.

                Yeah, there isn't a whole lot of $1 and $2 scratches in the numbers machines. Mostly $3, $5, and $10. And you can claim numbers games tickets in the machines (not scratchers), but they come in the form of vouchers or game credits, and you have to take the voucher to a regular clerk-operated machine to get cash.

                  Born and raised in Dutch country here! 

                  The machines were introduced to only certain high populated areas. They are slowly weaving them into other areas of PA. I personally dont care for them- reason being- Recently put 5 dollars in to do a mixture of some cash five and powerball. Spewed out two -$1 cash fives and then malfunctioned. You cant get your money back from these machines and they don't allow  validation or redemption.  Sure they are great if you are doing a quick run of one type, but I wouldn't wager a large amount in them only to have it incorrectly dispense. Even the store manager will tell you they have to wait til the machine is emptied to see if any extra money is in there verses the actual play. ( Like they would tell you anyways...). For some odd reason, standing in line waiting to have a person do the machine is safer and more reliable.  JMHO :)
