Thanks, I'll have to look through the product plan. 

You have the clerk scratch off the 3 boxed numbers?

I am not a retailer but I played more than plenty of scratchers over the past 13 years to see how the process works.

I meant to rephrase what said

1. Currently the clerk has to scratch off for the 13 digits. They scan the back of the ticket on the bottom and then for verification purposes they enter 3 boxed numbers from the 13 digits.

2. This new system, the clerk will cash out tickets the same way as consumers would check to see if their ticket is a winner on that ticket scanner.

I guess it saves one step of punching in the numbers.

    1x $10 Millionaire's club scratcher- loser (liqour store)

    1x $10 California Black scratcher- loser (seven eleven)

    1x $10 Crossword Cash (new ticket)- loser (seven eleven)

     

    $30 that could have easily gone two ways- $15 to fantasy five and $15 to super lotto or $30 for just one game.

    People on the other side of the state line say CA always wins the MM and PB bags. But they sure have no clue of how our scratch ticket program is very shady.

      Not quite a member of the California Millionaires Club, but it's a nice consolation. Smiley

        Re-post from earlier.  Perfect way to cap weekend. If the image keeps disappearing, it's a $10 Millionaires Club $1,000 winner.

          Congrats Chacha.

           

          I got 2 Emeralds after a long time and won $20 and $15 on them. Then I saw that the retailer is also having a CA Black roll so got 2 of them with the winnings and $15 cash. Haven't scratched the Blacks yet..

           

          DGinElMonte , do you know when the Blacks would end?

            Bought two California Blacks this morning.  First one was a $50 Win (Win All Prizes) the second was a dud. I pocketed the $50.

              Nice win! Good to see that you've finally got a taxable winning amount after years of playing, hopefully your luck is turning towards your favor though it will not cover the losses accumulated. Its well deserved, as the lottery structure does not guarantee these types of wins to players who play for a long time.

                Thanks for the kind words, but jeez..."taxable winning amount." Can't wait to go to the district office. Fortunately I don't owe anything, so I should get the full grand. Wondering whether to take a hiatus from Scratchers...a win like this only took me 15 freaking years of playing! Don't know whether they're worth buying anymore.

                    #21. Got that and a Million $$ Match from a vending machine at Vons and won $40. Not bad for a $30 investment! I got butterflies as soon as I uncovered that big one.

                          Sorry for the late reply.  Spoke with my lottery rep when she stopped by today.  She said they haven't set an end date for California Black yet.  According to the Calottery website, only 12 of 24 top prizes have been claimed so far. 

                          Hope that helps.  Good luck.

                            The fact that 12 of 24 top prizes still available is why I'm still buying Black if I can find them.

                              I'm not sure how much longer this game will be available.  But the sale of this game has tapered off considerably from when it came out.  I'll be very surprised if the remaining 12 get claimed.
