People can sell food and ice cream from a truck...well how come there's not a Lottery Truck?

I've often thought about that on days I felt like going out to get a ticket but for some reason or another wound up saying..."ah, forget it."

How about those days when it's scorching hot or snowing cold or you're just too dang busy to make a trip to the store?

But hey...here comes the L.T.

I hear the song. I can run right out in my slippers and get my ticket. I don't even have to comb my hair!

Morning,Noon and Evening it could cruise around to accommodate everyone's schedule. I'd be buying a lot more tickets,that's for sure. What about you?

    I wouldn't buy lottery tickets off anyone just driving through the neighborhood in a car or truck.  Reminds me of that old scam of people standing outside a retailer selling winning lottery tickets because they didn't know how to cash them  in.

      Obviously there would be a lot of things to consider with this endeavor. It would most probably have to have some kind of government/state employees running it to keep it legit. It couldn't be run by just any Tom,Dick or Harry.  Plus it might even have to carry an armed guard. The con's , I'm sure, would out weigh the pros but I still wouldn't mind one passing in front of my house once in awhile :)

          Not a truck but the Illinois lottery sets up a tent at the state fair, same kind of thing, no?

          Not only that but the scratchers sold there tend to win more often!

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

          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.

            When traveling in Kentucky a few years ago I saw signs posted at stores along the highways stating "Only lottery tickets brought here can be cashed here" which could make buying tickets from a place that moves a bad idea in Kentucky.

              Why not sell Lottery out of a truck.

              In Detroit, some bad guys use Ice cream trucks to sell dope and guns.

              Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

              For a lead role in a cage?

                I can't stand the music coming out of the ice cream trucks it drives me crazy to hear it!  I would not rush out to a lottery truck driving around playing horrible music!!

                  I've seen the same kind of setup in Wisconsin at Summerfest - they have a little lottery trailer selling tickets.  I'm not sure about the state fair though, I haven't been in a few years.

                  Here's wishing everyone the good fortune they're looking for.  Remember, if you happen to win more than a couple bucks, try and donate a little to one of your favorite charities - keep that positive mojo working!

                    The last time I saw a lottery truck was 4 years ago. It was doing a promotion for some new tickets. coming out in In. they give away coupons buy so many of some of the games you get one free. Now, all my friends here came from the north, therefore we would been happy to see Lottery any thing here. In ALA. We take a road trip to get tickets across the state line, 2-1/2 hours.

                          Before you know it - Parents who are too lazy to walk out their front door will be sending their 10 year old children to stop those lottery trucks and purchase tickets for them.

                            I only play by subscription. I don't buy tickets in stores and I would never buy tickets from a truck. 

                             

                            Playing by subscription, raises more revenue for the state, as commissions to agents are not paid on subscriptions.

                            We all get a lot out of lotteries!

                              Yep, they usually set up at Alive After Five ( a weekly music event) and they have a booth at the yearly home shows.

                              I've never heard that scratchers sold there win more often though.  Maybe I'll try next time I see one.
