The man who contacted us was upset that some of the lotto tickets he’d purchased didn’t contain the plays he wanted. He’d just verbally told the person working at the store what plays he wanted and he didn’t look at his tickets until he had driven somewhere else. We went over a few tips with him that I hope can help you as well.
Always keep in mind that using a play slip can help ensure accuracy in the plays you’re purchasing, especially if you’re buying a lot of tickets at once. The play slip can help keep things straight for both you and the folks working the store. For example, if you want to buy Hot Lotto® easy-pick plays for the next 10 drawings with the Sizzler option added, you can fill out a play slip to indicate all of that by marking the “Sizzler” and “multi-draw” options. It’s quick and easy to do, and your purchase will be clearly marked on the play slip. The lottery terminal will print out the tickets that correspond to your play slip and you’ll be in and out of the store in no time!
It’s also important to check the tickets you’ve just purchased before you leave the store so you know for sure that you’ve gotten the plays you wanted. That way if there is an issue, you can alert store staffers right away and they can get you a ticket with the right plays on it.
Thanks for playing the lottery, and good luck! We hope to see you soon as you claim a big prize.
