Have you all experienced this? A licensed lottery retailer refusing to cash in a ticket that was the max $600 or less? As a licensed retailer are they allowed to do this. I live in N.C. and there was a guy off of interstate 40 exit 319 dairy queen for those of you who know the area...He wouldn't cash out any ticket unless you paid him 10% of your win...now people just stopped going there and he stopped but again as a licensed retailer I thought that would b in violation of their contract with the  state lottery commission..I mean I can understand them not having the money on hand at a convience store ( cause they have to drop their $20 bills in amounts of $100 each time they get $100) or a store that has just opened for the day...Anybody know for sure is this a violation? or just an infraction?

    NC lottery would know for sure and would probably investigate if they were aware that it was going on.

       Yes, it is a problem. He's trying to rip people off. If someone reported him he could lose his lottery license. You don't have to

       give him a dime unless you choose to. The lottery commissions usually give the retailers a percentage of any winning ticket

       they sold.

      Don't just think outside the box, crush it.

          This is terrible and he should be arrested for this...it is pure extortion--he has no right to ask up front for any money to redeem a lottery ticket.

             In Maryland retailers get a 5% commission on sales plus an additional 3% on anything cashed at the terminal. This doesn't

            include bonuses or promotional commissions. Go to your states lottery web site for info.

              As a Carolina resident, Report that store!   They will investigate.   There is no fee to cash a winning ticket in the Carolinas.   Go to  your local Food lion, they will cash it.

                      I'm tempted to take 40 to 95 home and check this out. Exactly what store is it.

                        A little bit of a commute for me, but I'm game to. Maybe we can boycott this store.

                        I want to meet this human pile of BS
