rdgrnr stop your making to much sense..Thery have a little machine here at Krogers and you yourself place your ticket in the machine and it tells you if it's a no good ticket or what you won,simple..Next.........
Yeah, I've used those scanners in Illinois and Kentucky before (half the time they didn't work, lol) but what I would like to see is a machine that also gives you a voucher for your winnings so there's absolutely no doubt about proving what you've won or any opportunity for malicious clerks to rip anybody off. The machine could give you the voucher and a copy for your records.
As it stands now, intelligent people can circumvent being ripped off but there are always some people who will fall prey to the scams of dishonest clerks. This would just take the clerk's opportunity to lie to people about their winnings out of the equation.
It would also be a measure to keep a clerk from stealing an unsigned ticket. And it's not just less intelligent people or forgetful people that don't sign their tickets. There are some people who just don't want to sign their tickets for a variety of reasons.
