Exactly, especially when you are playing with pool money. Just use playslips people. Just fill out playslips

I think some players enjoy having someone else to blame for their losing.  The other day as I was buying my lottery tickets one of the other customers asked me out loud "Does the clerk sell you losers too" and I replied "He sells me what I want 'cause I make out play slips.  If they are losers, it's my own fault".

 * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

    Amen on the clerks thing. Before CA got PB, I used to buy multidraw tickets on my last day, so I'd have 5 weeks of tickets in the pot. One time, the clerk was absolutely certain you couldn't play future dates and refused to even look at the screen for the option (even though there were no other customers in line) because 'you can't play when you don't know how much it's for.'

        The only time I don't use a play slip is if I am buying one quick pick for the current draw.  Anything over or with multiplay options I use a play slip.

          If you fill out your play slips with a marker type pen and you have other play slips under them, some times there will be bleed though that you may not notice and the terminals will read them as marks.  I've even had dirty terminals read the dirt on their screens as marks on my play slips.

          Or sometimes its a glich in the system. I handed a card for 3way numbers last night to a clerk which should total $4, they come back and said $8? I look, and one of the 4 numbers printed 5 times? We both look at the card and there is NOTHING on the MULTI ticket part for that number ---- REALLY strange!  And of course I kept the numbers and they didn't hit Crying

              Just another example of why clerks should be removed from the process entirely.

              Millions of dollars are being made by the states, let them invest some of it to automate the whole process, from buying tickets to cashing them in with Lottery ATM's.

              Let the only human error be made by the player and remove the opportunity for mistakes, blunders, fraud and theft by clerks.

                  Yeah if it was a few dollars, I would have just paid for it and kept it. Happened in the past and I actually won a few dollrs.

                        Or try going to  somplace or someone who doesn't make mistakes.

                        I wouldn't keep going to the same person if its been a problem in the past.

                          I'd sure be angry about that. But if you aren't sure you really said the name of the game you wanted, is it still her fault?

                          She should have confirmed your order if it was that much. Some clerks will repeat 3 times what you want, which is annoying

                          but I guess they've been burned before.

                          Don't stores make some money on lottery sales? I guess if they make mistakes and can't sell them that is taking out of their

                          earnings - but then the ones who make the employee pay, and I've heard quite a few complain mistakes are taken from their

                          pay, aren't losing much or are they? They'd be losing a customer - me - because I want someone who can do my order on

                          verbal command...I don't like slips.

                          Find a place where the lottery people are quick and capable.

                          If I was sure I stated my order correctly, I would not pay for them. Not my fault or problem.

                            I think some players enjoy having someone else to blame for their losing.  The other day as I was buying my lottery tickets one of the other customers asked me out loud "Does the clerk sell you losers too" and I replied "He sells me what I want 'cause I make out play slips.  If they are losers, it's my own fault".

                            I know for a fact I can play some lottery games for multiple drawings because I read the State Lottery rules and regulations. And if a clerk tells me I can't, I know there are several other stores that sell lottery tickets. Maybe part of playing lottery games for some players is arguing with and blaming clerks.

                            "I think some players enjoy having someone else to blame for their losing."

                            As long as the clerks are part of the process and players ask for QPs, the clerks are the natural person to blame. We have auto vending machines for scratch-offs and online games. We can fill out play slip to pick our numbers or buy QPs and the there is a scanner that gives credits for winning tickets. In big letters above the scanner it explains the machine only gives credits for play and a player will scan a $50 winning ticket, take the credits and blame the clerk because they can't get the cash.

                            Eventually lotteries will sell all their drawn game tickets Online and your guess is as good as mine on who the players will blame for their mistakes.
