    I voted yes.  I always tip the clerk who put in my numbers/slips when I win, not just any clerk behind the counter.  Mainly because I usually have so many numbers its like a job for them to get it right without making any mistakes ... that alone deserves a tip!

      When it is my regular store anything I win over 500.00 I always give them money or take them lunch or breakfast.

      I have won several big ticket scratch offs at one store, and the girls always knew if I won they won.I don't use this store any longer because the owner ,I feel, insulted me. I did tell the girls there what happened and why I would not be back there anymore, and they were not pleased, however when the owner and not an employee is the one doing the insulting, you have no recourse, other than go elsewhere. But I did tell them if I do win a major one I will make sure they get a piece. They are a great group of girls.

        I have never given tips to lottery retailers because I fill out my own play slips.  I do not think they need a tip.  If I could I would run the tickets myself through the machine.  I do tip in other places like car washes, casinos, restaurants.  I give tips based on how well I am treated and if they go out of there way or are just doing a good job then they deserve a tip.  When I buy lottery I go in with a set amount and I do not spend more than that.-weshar75

              I agree.. Been on both sides of the counter...

              I tip....... Golden Rule here...  One most do not apply in life.. and for those who do.. happiness fills their everyday. For those who don't.. well I wouldn't walk their shoes for all the money the lottery can provide..

                  Do you tip when you win?

                    If we won as much as you then maybe tipping would come naturally

                    Some are stengy with tipping and others are stengy with giving "tips"

                      Thanks Tntea, these girls were great with my scratchoffs and cash3 and 4.I have found a new store where the people are just as great, one thing I have noticed usually if I am nice and friendly they tend to be the same, I also verbally thank them, I know they spend a lot of time with me on this, also great to tell me if someone has just hit big on a ticket.

                      Thanks guys have a great evening.

                        I do not tip.

                        However I know how much my plays cost.
                        I went into the store last night and got my plays. Comes to $7.50. The cashier said $4.50. I said whoa that sale is $7.50. The error was corrected.
                        If the cashier has to make up shortage on their shift I saved her $3.00.

                          I was tipping before I was winning... lol

                          That is probably the reason I started winning is because I am not stingy..

                             WOW, another clerk asked me for a tip if I win big.  What's up with these clerks? 

                            I always buy from one store and cash in another so they don't know if I won.

                            Last week I hit $500.  No clerk getting my moola.

                              I can't believe people get tiped for doing thier job of putting a slip in a machine..Maybe my user name should be "Stingy" becasue I will not tip unless I hit thousands or millions..Of course if I hit millions no one but my family will know..I'll just buy some new friends if I need any??
