In 2005, I did this to research the odds of winning some of the higher-paying Virginia Lottery games.

At one point, I even considered starting a collection of playslips from various states.

Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

    How would starting a collection of playslips from various states aided your research of odds of the higher paying games?

      Of course you can take slips away as many as you like.  I usually keep a couple hundred of 'em.  They actually want you to use the slips,  it easier for all parties concerned.

        I once had to put in a special order to get 100,000 slips. The owner did not have that many at his store. It took about a week, but I got them...

          I ALWAYS use the playslips. That way there is no chance of a clerk punching in a wrong # and me losing $$$ because I didn't check the tickets before I left the store. Besides, 30 to 40 is too many to check. So if there is a mistake its all on me.

                It can take up alot of time waiting for someone to tell the clerk their numbers, fill the slips out.

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

                  why not you can use then at home to play later or  better yet a bookmarker.

                    It is ok to take slips. I use to own a shop and sell lotto tickets..

                    so here is why it is ok to take as many slips that you want..

                    The lotto company gives the shops a CASE of slips about 5000. And if you need more they bring in another case with no questions..

                    So its not a big deal... The shops could care less how many you take...

                          Sure take as many as you need.

                          The people where i play always forget to put more play slips up so i just asked them for a pack of  and     blank playslips. I got about 500 of each here.

                          Then when i go back in to play i leave my filled out play slips behind so someone else can play them. Jester

                            Yes, it's fine to take as many blank playslips as you need.

                            Whether or not you're buying tickets at that point doesn't matter.

                            The playslips could be for someone else for all the retailer knows.

                            Either way, it's irrelevant, don't even give it a second thought.

                            That's what the playslips are there for.

                            Best of luck to you.
