I don't know,I can not be that bothered by such a comment from a clerk. The way I see it, clerks are your allies.Most of us likely buy our tix from the same stores regularly and being friendly with the clerk can work to an advantage. Example: I generally stop into the same chain c-store every morning to pick up a couple scratch-offs on the way to work. The clerk there sees me coming, takes out his little envelope of winners from the overnight shift and lets me know which books of tickets had winners so I can avoid drawing from a dead book. If I ever find a JP ticket in that store I will be tipping that individual.

      lottery retailers do not remember me as they earn 6% commission on my losses, and plenty markup on my impulse buys.

      how about cutting me in on that action?

        Interesting... I've never had a clerk say that to me. The most I'll get is a "good luck" and sometimes they will tell me about new sctratchers or recommend ones they like. That's about it. I'd probably just brush it off as a joke.. Unless they said "remember me" with an attitude or something..then I'd be a little ticked. But I go to the same 4 stores here and there and know which employees are bad eggs already and which ones are actually nice.

          The odds of you ever having to really give anyone a tip if you win the jackpot are the same as those of you actually winning a jackpot so why even give it a thought?  After all, if you ever do win, you'll have more than just the clerk with their hands out.

          Call me paranoid, but I think you have to give it a thought.  If you jokingly say sure, you can have half, and then you do win isn't that a verbal contract?  There are plenty of people who'd take you to court on that and try to get a cut, even if you don't win till a year or more later.

            agree 100% and even the paranoid have enemies.
