What if phone booths became the new lottery retailer where you buy your tickets...You swipe your I.D card put in coins for the ticket or drop the dollar in something similar to a coin case and talk to an animated service on the phone and say which number you want to play...when the coin case is full someone comes and collects them, the same way they collect money on the phone booths....

when you win you go to a bank and withdraw/cash your lower prizes win...Your jaxkpot win you collect it at the lottery headquarters...

is an interesting idea...

The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨

          Cell phones have pretty much made phone booths obsolete. Here in florida, I would have to drive to the local Circle K convenience store or a 7-11 to find one. If i have to go to those places, then i might as well just go into the store and buy my tickets......lol

              Does anyone still use phone booths?

                  I think pumpi might still have them in Central America. The closest thing resembling a phone booth I saw was an empty shell on a stand, no phone.

                  The next best thing I saw one day was the stand, the phone, the thick silver flexible cord...but no handset. What? Funny what losing some change

                  will do to a person.

                    Scared

                    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.

                      Phone booth? LOL. Hardly any left. Maybe in airports. Or the call boxes on the side of the road. Hey, while you're waiting for your car to be towed you can play keno every five minutes. Good way to pass the time.

                        A good number of grocery stores (well I typically see them at Ralphs, CVS, and Food 4 Less) around here already have machines you can purchase lotto tickets/scratchers from. Just put in cash, scan your playslip or choose your numbers from the touchscreen, and out pops your ticket.

                          There is no phone booths in the town , I live in unless you go to the hospitals and use the pay phones...

                          The  smart phones are the way to go ...
