I think if I am not trusting clerks at lottery store, and I want to check my ticket and get small wins, I can color scan my lottery ticket and present it instead of real ticket? Imagine crroked clerk giving me part of my money, and keeping the scan! Ha-ha-ha! I'd laugh my guts out.

    LOL, funny idea, but I don't think it would work, I think the tix. have a watermark.

    And if it did work you could,nt cash the real ticket cause their system would show it as paid out,

    you would have to cash the real tix. at another store before the clerk cashed the counterfeit.

    You would need a partner w/ the real ticket at the other store to cash it immediately after the clerk scammed you,

    and before the clerk could cash the fake.

        Have you thought of maybe just signing at the back of it and maybe scratching the play area and reading the instructions to find out if you've won? o_O

          Yeah just sign it before you hand it over....and tell them you want to know what you've won before they cash it out....it if differs from what you know you won....ask for it back

              The watermark has no bearing on the bar code. Even if you scanned a fake, the original would then no longer work, because the machine doesn't recognize if it is a copy or not.  It only recognized the bar code was scanned.

                what if it were scanned but not cashed ?

                would my version work then ?

                nother ? 

                what if someone in a pool tried this w/their copy ?

                    Thats why I always ask for the terminal printed reciept, and watch as its printed.

                      I should then cash my ticket, with all the precaution, and use fake ticket to check another clerk's honesty. I love pranks. I think it would work as a prank.

                          Some clerks do not give that receipt, some keep winning ticket, some offer your your winning ticket back, some hand you your receipt almost forcefully. It's a mess. I remember when I was younger and naive, I actually asked clerk girl to check several of my tickets. She was checking and then something biped in a machine. I thought for a moment it means I won something, but she said there was no wins and threw the tickets in a trash. I am still wondering.

                            Well that might work if the clerk only read the ticket, not scanned it.

                              I dont think crooked clerks can be caught unless they ran down the street with ticket screaming "you lost"
