    Most of the time if the retailer is putting it in properly, they're going to come out in reverse order.  The only way to have them come out the other way is to flip the ticket upside down, which would make it more difficult for people to discern what ticket you're selling.

    The exception are the dispensers that are counter mounted.  The orientation of the ticket that is being sold has nothing to do with the separate ticket that is on display.  Hope that makes sense.

        Update of sorts... Had hundreds of CA Lottery 2nd Chance entries in play for a Jan 7 draw involving 6 or more games from an $800 to a $1M jackpot, and not one winner.

        While on the road last month and the early part of this month I played a few Texas scratchers. I forget how much I spent (but not much, maybe $30?) to to win $10. And overlooked one $1 winning ticket on the seat so only cashed in $9 worth of winning Texas scratcher tickets.

          Bought two Emerald 10's (dud, $50) at a Chevron and then went to Smart & Final of all places and got a one and done Millionaires Club $100 winner. (1 number match) What surprised me is that Smart & Final sells lottery tickets! Is this a new thing? Maybe it's just because I don't go to S&F that much.

            On the $10 Emerald has anyone gotten the "emerald" symbol or '10' anytime? I have played so many times and all I see is $$ or nothing.

              I've gotten the black 10 symbol twice. I believe it was a $100 and $200 win.

                  Stopped in to cash a winning scratcher at a local 76 gas station.  A clerk at the gas station won 5K on a scratcher.  The kicker is he's splitting the win with someone else. Sounds a little shady.

                    Looks like one of the $1M Taxes Paid top prizes has been claimed.

                      Those are always really fishy.  Get too many of those and they'll have investigators coming to their store to make sure they're not paying out tickets that are supposed to be submitted via claim forms.

                          Yeah I have not been winning on those Million $$ Match games.

                          Bought 5 last month and 5 this month, all of them losers. It supposed to have more winners in theory, but its been the most unkind game I've ever played.

                          Sad part is, next week, there will be another new $20 Ultimate Riches game that is similar theme to Million $$ Match even though the current game has half of its top prizes remaining. That game will be of less value since it is not eligible for the grand prize 2nd chance draw.

                            Right, in theory supposed to have more winners. I've been saying there is a flaw in that theory for a while now. I avoid those $20 scratchers all together. Just a waste of money.

                              Hey all!  I haven’t posted here in a while nor have i bought too many scratch tickets in the past few months.  Seems the CA lottery has dramatically decreased the amount of JP winnings in the $10 and $20 tickets and the new 2nd chance drawing sucks that they don’t have top prizes anymore.  why all the changes!?!? 

                              I also noticed a drop in my winnings as well.  That’s why I don’t play so heavy now.  Anyone else feeling this to?  I think they are getting too greedy
