At what dollar amount does a store get paid from the lottery for having sold a winning ticket, and how much does the store get?

Does it only apply to jackpots?

What if a vendor sold a MM or PB 5+0, does it get anyhitng for having sold it?

Do the vendors get anything for having sold Pick 5 jackpot winners? 

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.


There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

     I work in a gas station. Its a chain owned by The Pantry Inc. I know that a few months before I started here someone won the 5+0 on the powerball and no one in the store said they got any type of bonus. I know if its a Pantry owned store like the one I work in........the corporation gets the selling bonus and its not distributed to store associates. The "big wigs" keep it.

      It depends on the state, they all have their own incentive plan.  Here's Idaho's.
