I so enjoy whenever I have a reason (I won!) to visit my local Lottery office.  It's such a magical place in a way.  A place where most everybody you see there on line with you is a winner....happy.  They hand you your winnings (money) right away...no problem.   Just like making a withdrawl from the bank. I was talking to a guy on line who won 10 grand on one of the lower tier mega prizes. I hang out at one of the largest lotto retailers in NY and the customers I talk to all feel the same way.

I can't wait to go back. How exhilirating it is to be a winner.  At least in the context of winning lottery money goes.

Is it enjoyable for you too?

    I've never won an amount ($5000+) that required me to go to the regional lottery office.  All my prizes too large for the retailer have been handled by a local authorized bank.  Usually most of its customers are doing regular banking business. 

    I'm looking forward to making the 60 miles trip to the regional office someday but first I'll have to win at least a state jackpot or second prize in one of the multi-state games.

          The NY Lottery has an office in the 2nd level of Empire Casino in Yonkers. Of course, after they gave me my $1K prize from a scratch-off, I had the check cashed and went downstairs to play. It took me a lot to pull away and make my win last. I guess I would avoid this office unless you really need to. Too much temptation.

              I've only been there once when cashing a Florida Fantasy Five ticket, 4 out of 5 worth a little over $700.00.

              This was when Florida didn't have a cap on 4 out of 5. Now it's capped at $555.00. Mad

              It was just one ticket that I bought using a technique that hasn't worked since. lol

              I fill out the betslip as fast as I can without really paying attention to what the numbers are. If i make a mistake and mark a space in between two boxes, I pick the box that was the closest and re-pick the correct numbers on a new panel on the betslip.

                  We(DH&I) have only visited one Lottery Office and that was in Dallas. Hubby said he did get a little excited while waiting in line and seeing the other winners he said there was two ladies behind him and they were telling to play the pick 4 each of the ladies won $5,000 a piece he said they don't waste their time on any other game except the Pick 4 Smile

                      Wouldn't mind walking into a office with a jackpot winning lottery draw ticket, don't play scratch tickets or the draw games often. Only when I see a big jackpot or feel lucky.

                         I won 200K, and waited less then twenty minutes to receive my check.

                        I arrived near opening time on a Monday morning with little fanfare, there were only 2-3 other people in the office at the time.

                        No one was asking to take my picture or get a story line.

                        Truthfully , I've had more excitement in going to my dentist.  Sleep
