When I went to buy my lottery ticket this morning (using my computer-printed bet slip) the store told me that the lottery called and said that computer-printed slips were not acceptable.  Anyone else have this problem?

    Most states have regulations prohibiting the use of computer-printed betslips, but that is just a technicality that most retailers ignore.  Just go to a different retailer.

      Todd is right, some or many of them (retailers) won't turn down the sales (money), you should find at least one that will take them. Unless you are from a very small place that has only 1 or very few retailers.
