      If the hit is over  $290, I will tip.

      The store I play lottery is a little ma and pa shop that gives me certain privileges that the owns only extend to their most frequent customers. This include calling numbers into the store and paying when ever I can get there.  Going to the head of the line to play Keno or racetrax. Getting a discount on actual purchases from the store.

      Their regular customers usually tip when they have big wins.

      Feeling,  PRICELESS!!!Banana

      Come on Jackpot!!!

        I am the same but also different.  $290 or more, not that I will 'tip' but I will be able to buy a locally made item that was too expensive for my budget normally.  Also buy from a small locally owned store vs 'The Walmart' 

        The idea beingsupport your local products and retailers.

          If I won a large amount I would tell the lottery corporation the name of the clerk, not just the store that I purchased the ticket from, and then maybe I would go to the store later to make sure that the clerk got their fee from the lottery corporation for selling me that ticket.. If the corporation gave it to the manager of the store instead; I would approach the manager and tell them I wanted the clerk to get their fee , because they sold me the ticket..Mail For You

              People should tip if they receive privileges from the store or clerk but in a big win i.e. Jackpot the store will get a commission anyways whether the store will spread the wealth to its employees is another question (I wonder if there's a thread that addresses that...it would be interesting to read what happened behind that kind of scene).  When playing roulette in casinos after a win I would place a few bets for the dealer and let them experience the same amount of anticipation as I did during the spin...lady luck will either smile or frown when the ball drops down and the tip(s) are usually divided among all dealers anyways.  And the attitude of the dealer is what prompts that in the first place and should be the same for clerks.

              In reality I guess it depends on what type of rapport one has with the clerk in the store...in any case I would want to remain anonymous.  Taking time to spread some comfort and joy in the community and assist some worthwhile organizations e.g. animal/human shelters etc is what would really bring a smile to my face!

                depends on the amount i win and the attitude of the clerk.

                  I've only had one clerk ask for a tip...it was this past Saturday. His name was AJ. He sold me a looser. I went back today and gave him a tip:

                  Next time sell me THE winner.

                  He laughed and didn't ask for any more tips :)

                    The way I figure it, I tipped when I patronize the store. I've had clerks ask for some money cause they cashed the ticket. My response to them is, did you help me pick out the winning number???...They usually shut up after that.
