Definitely do not plant one on her LOL. You'll be worth millions, she might sue you for some kind of assault. I on the other hand would have taken my payslip back and the receipt stapled them together and contacted my state lottery association and reported the store for misconduct. If they dont know the rules they shouldnt be selling tickets and ripping off customers. They need to be reported asap

It said no cancelation of  PB  tickects...she either push the wrong button or someone else played it before you...neither the less i would report the store....JUST her  threats to call the cops for a mistake that was proably her...... is REASON  to call  your local lottery office----REALLY!!!! the nerve

        Whoa, $120.00, that's a little excessive.

        l do consider myself quick thinking on my feet and surmised- " what if l do have the winning # for the next few drawings".. besides, this store is a little off the beaten track. It could give the appearance of someone taking advantage of Asian store keeper's, after all l did fill in the ticket on property.So l have 4 advance plays- whether that's a good thing or not is left to be seen.

        I went to another store, used the same play slip, and the machine printed out the five lines for one drawing and cost $5. I was told by other clerks that if they don't clear the machine before running a play slip, weird things happen like for advanced drawings and lines not on the play slips.

          Absolutely my thinking.it's kinda like trying to lose weight- the old saying " You win by losing".

          Her mistake could send me to a giddy limit- so its all good!

            The bit of latex on the ticket was my first thought when I read this just after you posted.

            I'm w/ Ridge;  I would have bought it, but if she had started being nasty right off the bat, then I would have waited on the cops.  I do know one thing, I'd never go back to that store.

            Lotteries really need a "Void" feature just for this sort of thing.   A convenience store near my house has a procedure for an over-ring;  they void the transaction, then ask the customer to sign the cash register void receipt. (I sign mine "U.R. Screwed" but that's just me)  I don't see where having a void feature would be that much more alteration to the software or machines.

              Hadn't won on a "mistake ticket" ever. I have always bought them "just in case". About 2 weeks ago, I went to my favorite store, was BSing with the clerk(like us men usually do) and he printed out the wrong ticket that I had requested. I told him and he said it was ok cause he was going to buy one and he took that one. I saw him a few days later and he showed me the ticket and asked me if I remember telling him that I didn't want it. I replied "yeah"... He  won $50.00 for that draw with the MM on 5/13........Lessen learned !!!  Bash

                Same thing happened to me about a year a go but it was for $64 I picked up a playslip at the counter and filled it in for 4 lines and they asked for $64 when we looked at the slip there was a black mark on it for 8 draws.  We went through the playslips and the first 20 or so were marked that way.  I now always check my blank slips to make sure they are clean.

                  So here l was coming home from visiting a friend last night, l drop in on this convenient store and fill out a PB payslip for 2 lines and hand it to the Vietnamese woman behind the counter. She slides it through the machine and says " $16.00"- and l am like " No, its $4.00 straight". She shows me the ticket and says " You pay $16.00- California say All Sales FINAL" l look at this woman and tell her that l distinctly marked 2 rows, what's the problem?

                  This woman starts raising her voice and tells me " You pay $16.00- you mark Advance Play, that why you now pay the money", l took the slip and looked over the " advance play section and there is zero marks in that section, so l tell her" l respectfully disagreed with her telling me that l must pay $16.00!" Next she says " You not pay, l call law enforcement, you mark ticket, you pay- l no want PB ticket"

                  l decided  to cough up the $16.00 and walked away from the joint.

                  Beware of those  " Advance Play" sections people, l learned the hard way!!

                  Looking back, l have to chuckle.

                  Side note: I notice here and repeatedly in past postings you referring to these stores as "convenient" store, but the proper term is "convenience" store. I would expect that from an ESL person, but not from NG? Confused

                    Truth be told, l was born in Germany to American parents and did not come over till l was 6- old German English coming through.They were called convenient stores then. Now you know, hey maybe l did end up doing the ESL after all.Big Smile

                      I tend to like the idea of buying a mistaken ticket although, in this case, you didn't mark that spot. Could definitely be to your advantage. However, with the clerk getting all loud, pushy, and threatening to call the po-po, I would've simply signed and dated my ticket, grabbed my phone and  took a picture of it front and back clearly showing it not marked in that section. It's all hind sight now and  this is what happens when we get side tracked in the heat of the moment.

                      She simply didn't want to eat $12 for pressing the wrong button is my thought. Good luck any how!!! Cheers

                        Kind of makes you wonder who marked them. That's why I always grab a stack of slips from time to time and fill them out at home.

                          That was just one small issue that I noticed that drew my attention. It's just like that scene in the movie Inglourious Basterds, where the spy in the bar raises three fingers the American way instead of the German way, giving away his identity as a foreigner.

                          I too spent a few years in Germany in my youth, but it did not have any effect on my engrish.

                              Sounds like the 'succubus' episode who wants 2 fiddy from chef's father in South park  lol

                               

                              anyway,I thought all states were in the same technology zone.Here in connecticut,if they make a mistake on your ticket,they rei-nsert in the terminal to void it.
