Hey! Those are my numbers!
As a cashier at a gas station, we made about 2000 dollars in lottery alone the day before the powerball drew.
@MissWheezy, that's the real way to win the lottery.
@MissWheezy, "If I win I'll split it with you"-literally every customer above 18
@MissWheezy, businesses don't directly make money off of selling lottery tickets/scratchers. They are paid by the lottery company to sell and cash them out. Depending on sales, winning tickets sold, etc; they are paid bonuses by the lotto company
The person that won the Powerball lives down the street from me and bought her winning ticket at the gas station I go to everyday. I didn't care that she won but the amount of news coverage at the gas station was incredibly inconvenient
@Aaron Leibowitz, I still wonder why she publicly came forward and did interviews because if I'm correct, you guys aren't under the "must publicly release name of winner" law that other states are under.
@JakobJeanCiccone, actually MA is one of those states. Any winnings over a certain amount must be disclosed to the public
@Aaron Leibowitz, what's the reasoning behind this law? That's so not cool
