When you clearly state to the cashier that you want a "megaplier" ticket or a "powerplay" ticket and then they ask you do you want the $1 or $2 ticket for MM or ask you if you want a $2 or $3 ticket for PB. It drives me nuts I always turn it around and ask them did I give them $1 or $2. I dont play the power play so it's always gonna be $1 or $2 for me. That's my pet peeve does that bother you all as well?

      Usually I play where I know the clerk also plays and knows the games.

      But admttedley in trying to find such clerks I've met some Lulus!

      "Play this for the next two draws please" has often turned into two different tickets for the next draw. That's just one example.

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      Lep

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

          I'd rather go to the filthy little latex-flake covered stand and fill out a playslip than deal with a moron clerk.

            Yes.........but it bothers me a lot  more ,  when I  pull up to a drive through restaurant  order window and tell them what I want

             

            And then they say.........would you like fries  with  that  or  our  daily  special ..... and   we have this and we have that  , or do you want this  or do you  want that ,  that we have  also

             

            I feel like saying many times , NO........If I wanted anything else I would have told you when I ordered

             

            But ..... I usually just say    No  Thank  You  in a  firm  voice

             

            I know they  train them to say that ( and I know they  probably spot check them to see if they are saying it  ) , and I dont blame it on the employee 

             

            Its  whoever  owns  the  restaurant   chain  that wants that done , is who I would like to get my hands around their  throat  for  about  5  seconds    Chair      Smile

              " Do you want fries with that"..lol. l usually tell the person asking those questions" Why do you think lm not eating enough? " Astekblue. Most of the time they say they sorry, and l believe them because management is probably trying to drive sales at their location.
              On the topic at hand- we do not have the megaplier deal out West so no worries on that front.

                I always ask for a megamillions ticket with the megaplier so they don't screw up.

                    I like to fill out play slips so I do not get the confused looked from the clerk like what did he just say about the lotto.  My pet peeve is when I want to fill out a play slip and the lotto stand is full of scratch-it shavings.  So instead of bugging the clerk to wipe it off for me to fill out a play slip I just go to the counter in front of the lotto stand were everyone watches the keno monitor and fill it out their.  I try to be as quick as possible because their are people that like to look at the keno monitor to see the results for their tickets.  So it can be drag for them when I take up space to fill out my lotto slips.  But I only do it twice a week so usually when I go to circle k their isn't very many people playing keno.-weshar75

                      All clerks are not created equal. For approx. $7.50/hr, some get really pi$$ed when they see people buying lottery tickets. They want to be millionaires also, but they can't really afford to splurge on lottery tickets, hence the green-eyed monster sometimes shows up, in the form of stupidity. Just use the play slips.

                        LOL Hey I bought tickets when I was making minimum wage they can buy one ticket, as for the playslips I use those when I pick my own numbers, not when I just want a quick pick, filling out a playslip would defeat the purpose of it being quick
