I buy my tickets at the place I want to see get blessed....

I used to go to a 7/11 store and buy my $1 tickets for the state/multi-state games until one day, the clerk got an attitude with me.....he wanted to know why I only play $1....why don't I buy more!

I totally ignored him and never went back......

Since I know that retailers get a cut for selling the winning jackpot ticket....I want it to go to a place that I like and the customer service is satisfactory.

If you don't feel like they appreciate your business....take your business elsewhere.

Ha, I had said the same thing.

I would love to win the lottery from tickets bought at the store I frequent most because I'd like to see them benefit. Of course, that's if the owner decides to give some to them, if they don't and it's something like the PB tonight with a high jackpot I'd pass along some to the person who sold the ticket to me (and another that has sold me the majority of my tickets if they weren't the one working that day I came in to buy).

There's one store I've been to twice and one of the times the lady working gave me the nastiest look and just gave off an extremely bad vibe, so I've yet to go back. Though it is humorous that I won a few dollars of the ticket she sold me.

    If you decide to come forward with some sort of story when you hit the big one, make sure you give a shout out to all the judgemental store clerks. lol  And instead of giving them any of your money, have a pizza sent to the store on a friday telling them thanks. And never go in there again.

      I agree about the negative energy. Get out and find a place that makes you happy. Heck - you should be happy when buying lottery tickets .... happy and lucky!

      I agree, I try to buy from liquor stores cuz let's face it, liquor stores make people happy.

      I can only do that in Virginia though.

      Tennessee won't allow liquor stores to sell lottery tickets because it will set in motion the chain of events that will bring about the Apocalypse.

      That's what the Governor said anyway.

        Some good news! I found a place a block away from my house that not only has the vending machines for when I want to buy scratch offs, but a clerk that looked like was having the time of his life scanning people's tickets. He was singing to that little fanfare that plays when you scan a winning ticket. LOL Maybe I just caught him on a good day, this was my first time in there, but I might stick with this place! I'm set for the week on MegaMillions and Powerball so I only bought scratch-offs today, and I made a minor profit. Looks like I found my new go-to spot!!Hurray!

            if youre not comfortable, buy somewhere else. or complain to the manager and see if anything changes.

            my little store has a whole 3 employees, including the owner. i always tell them to sell me a winning ticket. they dont listen much. but one day they will :P

              What I would do is this, whenever I had winning tickets, then I would cash them in at this store with the judgemental store clerks, and if I was inclined to buy tickets there at the time, maybe. But whenever I didn't have winning tickets to cash in, go but them somewhere else.

              Money can't buy you happiness, but I sure could afford the misery that it brings! Wink
