I usually do NOT tip the clerks. I look at it like this, I spend tons of cash on tickets and usually just ask the clerk "has there been any decent wins today?"....99% of the time they just answer "naw, just people winning their money back".

I don't think I need to tip when they just rip a ticket from the book and hand it to me. I pay the machine most of the times too.

Now if the clerk told me, "hey man just an FYI, that book just had 10 losers in a row, you may want to try that one", and If I get the next one and its  a decent winner, sure I'll throw the clerk a tip. But I rarely even scratch in the store.

I tend to buy at one store and cash at another when I get a decent winner. That way the clerk doesn't even know.

I'm not a cheap-azz either. I tip bartenders & waiters very good

Now if they gave me a beer with my lotto ticket it would be a different story =)

haha....that is true...only tip if they give you a nice heads up....from now if i get a decent winner i will put it in my pocket and cash it at a different store Sulk Off

    wow very nice...congrats...did you scratch it at the store or bring it home?? did you tip the clerk?? in the past if i win $250 or more and cash it in, its like when they are about to hand you the cash, they have the look on their face like they are expecting a tip....i mean i tip if i win $250 or more...what about you guys??

    I bought it at the corner news stand where I normally don't buy...I bought the winning triple millions because they were out in the open hanging down

    where I could see them so I just bought some on a whim.  I did not tip them because they never give me any "tips" on what they think is winning or

    next to hit.  I didn't even tell them or cash it there.  I cashed it where I go the majority of the time and the guy won't take a tip.....he said I play so

    much that one day I will hit it big....then he wants a tip!! LOL He is very helpful to me and have won in his store on several times...$250 & $500 twice.

      I usually take them home so he will put the stack on the side till I come back!  I treat him with respect and never give him a hard time so he treats me back with respect and tries to help me because I am a good customer;)

      everyone in ny expects a tip. even after spending $1k in just one store and then cashing some winners the clerk looks at me like he expects more than the $100 in commission he just made off of me........

        If they give me a winning tip............I give them a tip, if not, too bad.  I have won $500 and I have spent $500.

          played in 2 stores today....in the end lost about $100 again of my cash minus the winning tickets....had about 3 or 4 $50 winners, 2 $30 winners, $25 winner, $20 winner, and a few $10 and $5.....lol with the winnings and my cash included should be about $350-$400 that i lost today......it was fun but i wish i could end up with a profit lol....played only $10 and $5 tickets.....couldnt remember all the winning tickets numbers cause i just scratched the codes and scan each ticket....the new $5 wheel of fortune is horrible.......i have spent alot and only get $5, $10, or $15 winners.........

          also mamamary517 do you remember the letter code on the $600 winning ticket?

            finished my last scratch off outing in nyc. chased the $30 ticket from #22 down to the last ticket. clerk said no big winner on the roll when i started. hit $100 twice ( #01 and #02 ironically) $50 once $35 3 times and $30 twice. so lost around $270.....

              oh yeah dude said he sees a $500 winner on nearly every roll of the $30 game. this cant be true right ? the odds are what 1 in 750 ??

              maybe he was trying to get my enticed to buy the rest of the roll.....

                that is not true at all...i know there should at least be x2 $100 winners in a roll for the $30 tickets.

                  According to the lotto clerks I talk to, the $30 ticket has mostly $35 winners and a few $100....they say no one buys them because you spend more

                  than you win.  The person who does buy them has to go thru a lot to get the $100....it's just not worth it.   There is going to be a new $20 ticket coming

                  coming out in October...save your money up, I think they are going to be good.Approve

                      Yes...the code  was K A A .......never ever saw that before.  I bought another one today and won $90 very odd amount the code letters were Y A Z

                       

                      I guess like the $30 is N A Z           & the $40  is   P A Z

                       

                      The $20 is now being advertised look near the lotto machines or ask the clerk to see the flier for the new tickets in Oct...it looks really GOOD...more than one way to win...looks like we will have a good time spending our money!!  And hopefully winning!  Good luck & save up those bucks!

                        Nice hit on Triple Million mamamary517!

                        I bought three last night #40-42 and all were duds. Also got a $5 cash extreme and lost.

                        I haven't been playing nearly as much lately, I pretty much get a couple of tickets on a whim here and there. If I win i'll buy more tickets and if I lose i'll stop. I've been thinking of getting a roll though, just to see if my bad luck has changed. Not sure which roll to get, but I only wanna spend $500. Any ideas?

                         

                        edit: new $20 game eh? Do you know the top prize?

                            Sorry I was so excited about winning I forgot to tell you about the New $20 ticket.....it is coming out on Oct 4, called the Magnificent Multiplier

                            couldn't see the grand prize but the prize multiplier is X 50.....yep times 50!   it looks like there are a few ways to win going down the left side and then

                            matching across....I really can not wait!  I will let you know the grand prize and the odds as soon as I find out!  Good Luck!
