Assuming that you mean by the purchaser/customer...A simple "thank you" should do it.  The clerk did their job...Just as if they sold me a bag of chips.  I'd be more motivated to tip the guy that offered to hold the door, pump my gas or clean my rims.  They don't have a job description to reference.  Of course, with a kind gesture in return...NEVER cash. They won't get the opportunity to snort, inhale, inject or swallow my money!  Clerks don't work for tips...As far as I know.

What the GA lottery does for them is non of my business, and I can guarantee they'll never see me on the property again after it's all over.

    I will not tip if I win  $10 million.  They would not be happy with any amount so better not to give.

      Zero.  If all they're doing is cashing me out which is what they're job as a cashier requires then nothing. Besides the store would get a payoff so let the owner give them something from that.

      Take Risks: If you win, you'll be happy.  If you lose, you will be wiser...

        Lol yeah BigDMike! First 'job' I ever had was opening doors when I was 6 or 7 years old! Used to get pennies for it! Holding out my hand lol at 7 years old! Just thinking about the pharmacy on the corner, and the GI Joe's they also used to have, hoping I'd get enough to get just one! LOL! The old ladies, they were always the nicest. Always. Oh man, you brought back a memory..those were the days..
