      There are people who play big stacks of numbers at the beer and beverage store in my neighborhood.  They hold up the line for long periods of time.  Sometimes I can't get my few numbers in, before the state cut off time. I have noticed that these people give certain clerks nice tips for punching in all of their numbers.  Then when they win, they tip even more money to the same clerks.  I have seen $50's and $100's given as tips quite often.  I can't even guess the amount of tip money that is in the folded wads these special clerks get.

      I have also waited in line for the stacks of numbers being punched in for people who are NOT in the store.  They call to see if their stack of tickets are ready and when they come to get them, they tip for that service.

      I tipped a few dollars to see if I would get faster service the next time. 

      Nope, still had to wait.

      Fortunately, there are lots of retailers in my area that sell lottery tickets, but the B&B store is so convenient.  Free parking and sometimes beer samples. Yes Nod

          I have never tipped before, but that is only because the highest amount I have won so far in 8 years is $7.00 and that was after spending $30 on tickets.  I have to seriously think about it but right now I would only tip if I hit the JP and even then I am not sure.

                  money follows money so when u give a something to the person who cashed the ticket, money normally comes back to you.  I will give something back, even if it's only $20, but if I only hit for $40 or $15, all they get is a thank you and have a nice day.

                    Yes I tip Vince Conti. I buy his Tip Sheets month to month and when I hit Straight I send him a money order TIP. He's the best and I simply show my gratitude. However, store clerks that sell me my tickets get free tickets in lieu of cash. I will buy 50/50 on a pick 3 for example. I buy ten of them and hand one to the clerk. If it comes out we both WIN!! :)

                        I don't agree with tipping clerks that sell tickets- because if you win a large amount for example- the lottery corporation gives a certain percentage to the seller of the ticket anyway..

                        So you wouldn't need to give the clerk a tip- because the lottery corporation would give them a certain fee..Hyper

                          The seller is the store, the clerk may or may not get a "bone".

                          (Just kidding, Elizabeth03, eh!)

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

                          Lep

                          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.
