Anyone else notice they removed the Scratch Games menu option on the left of the calottery.com website?

What a dirty move. Makes it harder to navigate and look at stuff, you have to dig around a lot more.

They did it again! The Scratchers Games sidebar menu item is gone. What kind of nincompoop is running the calottery.com website? Doesn't even check the edits they make?

    I bought a $5 poker scratcher from a machine at a gas station, the machine ended up tearing off a small part of the bar code  but i didnt notice until a few days later when i went to scratch it, it turned out to be a a $6 winner, 2 places couldnt turn it in, 1 clerk tried every number on the ticket and couldnt do it, on the self scan machine it says it is a $6 winner. what can i do to turn it in? do i have to mail it in to the CA lottery? thanks

      Yes you have to mail it in..but for $6 I would just throw away the ticket compared to the hassle..

          Lady luck is continuin' to do a number on me with the Diamond Millionaire. Got a couple more today at a couple stores, all lost!

          But Smokin' Hot Cash softened the blow somewhat:

          0, $20, 0, $10

          0, 0, $20, 0

          I'm runnin' a profit on Smokin' Hot so far, but a total shutout on the Diamond Mil cancels that out. That's the way Scratchin' goes sometimes...

          Let It All Out

            they should be able to put in the numbers manually ! 

            if the scanner picks it up as a winner there is no reason they can't put in the numbers..

            That clerk didn't know what she was doing.. try again somewhere else

              Wow, they actually fixed it same day!? I'm surprised. The last time I made a complaint they just ignored it, and took 2 weeks for the Scratchers menu to be restored. Today I actually got an answer and they must have told the web dude who broke it over the weekend to fix it today.(since this is the 2nd time they goofed)

                Yeah, technically they *should* be able to, but not sure if you can find someone who will if they haven't been trained, but you can try.

                There are 3 ways to validate a scratch ticket:

                1. back validation barcode plus the 3 digit security code from the front

                2. keyless validation 2d barcode from the front

                3. manual entry of validation numbers

                I've never seen any cashier in CA do anything but #1. But they should be able to do #2, since the 2d barcode was what you scanned to read the prize yourself. Again, if they've been trained and it's in their procedures.

                    Finally broke my losing streak on Diamond Millionaire, but only got back a measly 50% on it from my buying trip:

                    $10, 0

                    0, 0

                    0, $20

                    Was going to get some Smokin Hot Cash at one store but they were sold out, so I got a couple of 20x Crossword instead and got a lucky Fast Spot $75 winner that saved the day.

                        Slowly digging my way out of the hole I was in with Diamond Millionaire, couple each at a couple stores:

                        $20, $20 - back to back hits, both were 2@ $10 number matches

                        tkt, tkt - these were not sequential though, was 1 each from 2 different machines

                            Hey guys,

                            I have not posted here in a while.  Bought four smokin hot cash tickets today: 0, 0, 0, 0

                            also bought two 75000 poker tickets: 0, 0

                            Although I struck out today, I must say lately my luck with the 75,000 poker has been above average
