Is it OK to take a couple of blank playslips without actually buying a lottery ticket? I prefer to read them and fill them up at home before returning to the store.

      Safer, too.

        Sure...do it all the time. The lottery retailers get them for free from the lottery so no worries.

          Yeah, don't worry about it, take what you want, you pay for em anyway.

          Most people here probably have at least a little stack of playslips for the games they play.

          They make good bookmarks too.

                I don't see why not.  I do it all of the time since I buy for myself plus I run a Powerball/Lotto pool at work.  I often take a handful of each and nobody says anything about it.

                  You too with the bookmarks, huh Ridge?

                  Blanks or made out, or both?

                  How often do you find one in a book from one or two matrixes ago?

                  To show you how backwoods it is here at one of the places we play they have the Mega Millions playslips prior to the Megaplier (Illinois). I ask them to punch the numbers in because those playslips will only print a $1 ticket without the Megaplier.

                  One clerk told me try marking "Promotion". That "Promotion" was for something quite a while ago.

                  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.

                      I've always wondered where the Australian syndicate that bought all the combos in the Virgina lotto got all the playslips. I'll bet there were a few stores without any playslips.

                          Had to laugh at all the bookmark comments.  Me too!  At least they serve some purpose.

                            I noticed one of the gas stations why I buy tickets started putting their play slips behind the counter so that their customers have to ask the clerks for them.  Before when the play slips were on the counter and a game got hot, its play slips would disappear quickly.
