      Years ago in CA they used to get 6 cents a ticket. Who knows now? More or less. (Probably less)

        North Carolina gives .07 cents for every dollar sold

        Quoted by favor4:

        Your winning number is not under attack. It's about to HIT. So Hang In There"

          here in australia its %10 of the price,  SO  $1 ticket  customers pays $1.10 agent gets 10c,.  no  prizes for selling winning tickets at all out here i think.

          2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

          keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

            Their payday often comes in when they sell a big one. I believe that In wisconsin they get 2% of a big winner up to $100,000....

            In Illinois I believe that they get 1%, don't know about a cap though.

            I will make sure that the worker gets a great payday.

            But I have to win first!

            Any of the bigger ones so far I have came through.

              A while back, like more than a year or so or longer, one of the Aussies (it might have been you) here said that there was no tax on winners because each ticket was $1.03 AUS and the $.03 paid the tax.

              I always thought that was a great idea. Did it go up, is it still the same rule?

              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.
