  • Do you hand your ticket over to the Clerk and ask " So what is the ticket telling you & me ?"
  • Or do you take a look at the Clerk & with a grin say "See You later" and head out to your mode of transportation - out comes your phone to confirm what the machine is telling you?

      See the clerk = Lawsuit

       

      I check my tickets immediately after the drawing. I do not need a machine to confirm any winnings. When my wins are small, I make it very clear that this ticket is a winner, the amount of the win and lean over the counter in an intimidating way watching every move until the cash hits my hands. 7 - 11 staff knows the routine very well.

        I've never had a clerk check my tickets to see if it's a winner. I always know how much I've won before I hand the clerk my tickets and if I ever win a big one I plan on going to the main office and not stopping at a store.

        But on the other hand, it would be cool to see the looks on everyones face when they realize you just won a big jackpot.

          This has happened to me numerous times and each time I cuss at the GD scanner.  For what they get in revenue and what they pay for those scanners they sure should work a lot better.  I then scan it a second, third, and a fourth time and it finally comes up "sorry, not a winner".

          I don't get excited because I know the scanners are for crap. (Around here anyway)

                  l was told that the scanners NEVER make a mistake-"supposedly" they will never say " Not a winner, and after a few more scans say Winner." If they did- l can see a lawsuit.

                      Ask for a print out of the PB/MM #s,

                      leave the store.

                      compare the numbers while in your car.

                      Sign the back of the ticket. 

                      Make plans!!

                        I Agree! I never ask a clerk to check my tickets, I tell them I'm cashing it because I already know what it's worth and if it's worth more than $600 I tell them to validate it so I can go to the local bank to collect my money.

                          I scan my ticket first, when it said see clerk. He scan it & hand it back. Tell me congratulation and hand me some paper work. Then he told I had to go to main Lottery office to get the ticket cashed. So the Lottery office cut me check had my picture taking with a over size check. I believe that would been the end of that. People started coming out the wood work. cbr$

                              No you got that backwards.  They say  to see the clerk and after 3 or 4 scans they will say not a winner.
