Ever been to a store where they had more than one Green Machine?  I saw this for the first time EVER today.  And believe me when I tell you, I have been to a LOT of lottery agents.  I have never seen a store have more than one Green Machine.  Since this was odd, I spent 5 bucks on the MM, 3 on one machine and 2 on the other, and I broke down and bought 5 Cash 5 qp's (I never by Cash 5).  I figured since it was an oddity, i'd spend an extra 5 bucks.

You guys ever seen this?

    Way back in '89 the liquor store I worked in had 2 machines. That was before lottery tickets were available everywhere like they are now. We were so busy there that we sold more tickets then liquor,haha! I've seen a couple of other places that have heavy traffic with 2 machines. I don't think it's that unusual but I could be wrong.

        We have a store called, oddly enough, "The Lotto Store", which sells mostly cigs, lottery tickets. The owner, I've known for10 years, generates the highest lottery revenue in central Florida, 5 machines. When I have multiple winners, I always cash them there, no limit on number of tickets. That's nice.

            Green machine I assume is a lottery terminal. Here they are red. There is a beer/wine 1/2 mile away has four terminals,  six rows of keno and race trax seating, you walk in there at any time it is open and there are people playing. The place is also  a lottery plus which means they pay up to $5K per ticket, by check, they do the tax thing also.

              Oh i'm sorry lol!  I have only played in NJ and PA and the machines are green and black.  Since they are mostly green I always called them the Green Dream Making Machines aka Green Machine for short lol.

                Last weekend we were going to Vegas, and I forced my dad to stop at the "all popular" Wills Fargo Country store in the city of Baker... they have sold the most Super Lotto winning tickets in California!  That is the only store I have ever seen two green machines and two scratcher machines and two of everything that has to do with Lotto!

                  Thanks for clarifying that, M-W.  In IL they're all black.  I thought maybe there was a different kind of terminal or something.

                  To answer your question, I don't think I've ever seen more than one terminal at any location I've been to in IL.

                      The New Jersey Lottery actually refers to the terminals as "Green Machines", as opposed to just "terminals". This is the only state I know of that doesn't refer to them as "terminals".

                        Thanks for the update bobby j.  If there's one store, there must be more.
