Just curious, here in FL, I've only seen little clear plastic playslip holders that are give aways. I think I saw in CA they gave away little keychain scratchers. What other frreebies are out there?

    I got a plastic holder for bet slips.

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

      Probably the same type of thing we have here in FL. I wish they gave away some type of scratcher or keychain style thing here

            Only extra bet slips as far as I know. 

            Use to be most retailers had displays of bet slips, with boxes of plastic holders for bet slips, scratcher key chains and pencils with lottery logo on them on their counters.  Now some retailers don't even have a display of bet slips, they're stored behind the counter and are only given out when requested by customers.

              Dayum, from a marketing perspective all retailers should have bet slips readily available for players. I don't think Ive seen a retailer here in FL that doesn't have hundreds of betslips at the lotto kiosk for players to take as many as they want. Maybe some states want to try and save money by not giving out unlimited amounts.

                  it does not happen a lot, have not seen the free offer forever

                  but i love it when they offer, buy 5 powerballs, get a free pack 5 ticket,

                  now pack 5 gone

                  the point is, spend 5 bucks, get 1 buck ticket for free

                  etc, i love them kind of offers.

                        We're lucky we don't have to pay for the playslips in Tennessee. I had a young creamie give me a slipholder one time though.

                        Va used to have good, thick, clear, slipholders but now they've got these green things that are about as thin as Saran Wrap and they stick together and stick closed. They ain't worth the bother of trying to put anything in em. They stink too, like a plastic factory. 

                        Va had a trailer at the Bristol Fest last fall and gave away a bunch of cheap Chinese junk but it's the thought that counts I guess. I think I got a radio or a camera and a binoculars and an umbrella or something along with all the keychain scratchers you wanted. Everytime someone bought a ticket they'd get a bunch of cheap Chinese junk.

                        I threw it all away or gave it to a Charity thrift store or something.

                        I like the Va Lottery though cuz they have real ball drawings, unlike TN which has the fake computer drawings that they've been caught cheating at before.

                            really, there are no "freebies" everything is paid for by players.

                            game on, go ravens !
