Ronnie, you could always insert the playslips yourself through the machines- right above where the machines take your money. At least that's what I do since I don't like dealing with the cashiers.

 

 

Though you do run the risk of the machine not accepting the slip (sometimes they are closed for whatever reason)

Just a friendly suggestion Hippy

We have similar machines up my way, but no provision to accept play slips.

 

I like this idea of bypassing the clerk altogether.

Would such a machine would accept Ronnie's 20 play slips? Is their a limit to how many slips this one arm bandit will gobble up.  What?

          I think a lot of players would like bypassing clerks altogether and states are missing a great opportunity to sell more tickets by not coming up with ways to do that. 

          I know players who never buy more than five or ten lines locally but have dropped $50-$100 on tickets when out of town.  They just don't like responding to stupid things clerks and local folks say when they see them buying a bunch of tickets like "you playing for a pool", "have you got the winner", "remember me if you win" and etc.

                Im filling out 46 play slips right now to give this a try. From now on I will have 5 QPs WITH the correct bonus ball.

                Thanks for the idea mcginnin56

                  This is a great idea because I can reuse the slips over and over.

                      Failure should be seen as a learning experience.  Now you know a little more what doesn't work. 

                      I don't always review them but I make notes after each drawing about what I did or didn't do that could have contributed to a better result.

                            It worked to perfection mcginnin56, it will gobble up as many as it is fed. I put in the $230. and fed 46 slips through one at a time. No questions, no comments, no people waiting behind me and I was there at a busy time.

                              I have eliminated the 1 in 46 aspect of the game by buying all 46 bonus numbers.

                              The oddds may SEEM the same but they are not.

                              I have BETTER odds.
