I wouldn't tip anyone if I won big because then it'd be extremely obvious that I won and contracts aren't going to work either... I guess it could be done anonymously or some silly contract though still, you never know, it could cause more problems than it's worth.

when someone wins a mega millions , the person who sold the winning ticket gets $25,000..

    I will start tipping store clerks when they start giving me money out of sympathy for all my losing tickets. I am still waiting...

      Eh? $50,000 in Michigan but that's to the store owner and they might share it with employees.

      You can't predict random.

        I've never heard of that. I thought only the store owner was given money if someone won a big prize.

          I use to feel sorry for the store clerks when they printed out tickets by mistakes while processing my play slips and buy them since MM tickets can't be canceled and they would have to buy them or find someone else to buy them, but I never won a $1 doing that so now when they ask if I would also like to buy their mistakes I say "No Thanks".

              def give the clerk something, maybe a new Altima.   I've done that 'sh!t" work before and feel for anyone else who does.  guess it depends who your bosses are, and unfort none of mine were nice.  lol

              after winning it, i'd either buy the station or build one right across the street.  emply the dude that sold the ticket,  go FULL SERVICE and watch that place close like a house of cards.
