LOL  It always amazes me when I ask people here if they play lottery. 9 out of 10 times I hear a no. With per capita sales of about $93.00 a year per person (last I read) I guess it shouldn't surprise me.

lottolaughs, i lived i un. inc. anaheim when the ca. lottery started,

there was a c-store just in back of my apt. complex i could walk to buy tix.

back then they only had scratchers.

    That must have been about '85,'86?

      Really? You must be more down south somewhere? Feisty,what is the name of that little town that is just over the line that is supposed to be one of the hottest places to buy tickets? Have you been there? It starts with a P, I think? I read they sell more tickets in CA then any other place. Just curious. Thanks if you know!

       

      Edit: I'm reading more posts and I think that's what you were talking about. Primm? Is that what you said haymaker? Is that the HOT spot?

      According to the news last night (ABC, NBC, etc.) Primm sells more lottery tix than ALL of the other retailers in CA ... Of course that's because all of Las Vegas goes there to buy!  Myself included ...  even Nipton was crazy this past Monday, so its gonna be a real road trip for me if no winner tomorrow.  Maybe Baker this time.

        yea, primm, used to be called stateline, but there where too many places called stateline so they renamed it primm,

        the guy that owned the 3 casinos there was Gary Primm.

            sept/oct 85 sounds right,the way i remember it was i had just quit smoking and said to myself "i can afford this w/$ saved from cigs.

            also gave me more $ for los alamitos.
