Played a Pick 3 and a Little Lotto. The Little Lotto was for two draws- I marked Mulit Draw, and on another box wrote out 2 DRAWS and checked void.

So the clerk runs them and for some reason the machine kicks back the Little Lotto (it's taken a slip like this many times).  He says no problem, he'll manually put them in.

So he gives me the tockets, Pick 3 is fine, the Little Lotto ticket says;

1 2 3 4 5

1 2 3 4 5   (not the real numbers)

1 draw (s) $   2.00

Oh well, I guess if I hit solid I'll split the jackpot with myself!

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.

    Doncha love when lottery clerks don't know a play from a draw?

    It could pay off though in the event there was 3 or 4 winners.

      I was driving back home from the University of Georgia on 20 November of last year. When I was in South Carolina, I saw two consecutive "426" license plates, so I decided to play "426." But first, I had lunch at Jack in the Box (I like Jack in the Box, and it's the only one I know about). 

      When I was at Jack in the Box, I took my money out of my money clip on the back of my wallet (really a credit card organizer) to pay for my lunch and put the money in my shirt pocket. Then, I went to play "426." I got to the store and, when I went to get my money to pay for it, I couldn't find it! I checked all of my pockets - except the one where I put my money. I gave her my debit card but she said she could not take it for lottery payments (I'm aware you can't use a credit card, but I paid with a debit card once in Virginia without a problem). So I told her to cancel the ticket. I went to the little safe box I had in my car, where I had more money stored, and went back and played again. It was only after I hit the road that I realized I put the money in my shirt pocket.

      Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

      In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

          One clerk wants to check for winners after the tickets are printed, before I pay for them. Another cannot add the values of P3 tickets, some are $.50 and some $6.00 and would short the till if I paid less that what is due. Most clerks have to look at draw result tickets I request closely before handing them over. I have a nice collection of those plastic playslip wallets, and still seem to need more~

            I handed a clerk my MM playslip with 2 of my own picks and 3 QPs and after running it through the terminal, she said "that will be $64"! It was an obvious terminal mistake because my playslip was marked correctly and should have cost $5. On any other Ohio Lottery game, the clerk could simply cancel the ticket but all sales are final with MM. I've bought mistakes in the past but not for that big of a mistake and besides I only had about $20 in my pocket.

            The clerk tried to make it sound like I made the mistake because she had to buy the $64 ticket so I told her to call her boss while a long line was forming behind me. The $64 ticket didn't even have my picks on it and was for multiple draws. She finally said I didn't have to buy it so I took the same playslip to another store and that terminal printed out the correct ticket.

            It made wonder what would happen if a player made a big mistake on their MM playslip and didn't have enough money to pay because somebody has to pay for it.

              LOL when the machine wouldn't take my MM playslip 'cause the matrix had changed and I was using an old slip.

                That would be a good idea to set up a lottery ticket organizer; it would help you a lotSmile

                  a great use for old bet slips...roll them up tight and use them for fire starter logs.

It was only after I hit the road that I realized I put the money in my shirt pocket.

                    I have paid for lottery tickets with my debit card, many times. One day I was on the turnpike (highway) coming home, and stopped at the rest stop and got some tickets, and the clerk told me she just wanted me to be aware that they DID NOT take anything but CASH for lottery tickets, no cards. It was fine, because I was using cash, but I thought it strange. I realize there are a lot of travelers from out of state, that come in and buy tickets, but a debit card is a debit card, isn't it? It wouldn't matter if it was from someone out of state or not, it should debit directly out of their account, and it is cash. Hmmm. I just don't think cashiers are educated about it, or something. They are told no "credit cards", and they think no CARDS. lol
