Owned a C-Store back in the day. Happened to me 3 times, that I know of. Certainly not to that extent. It's one of the easiest rackets to pull off unless the owner/manager really focuses on his numbers.

Of those tickets, Delawder says she received around $3,000, according to police.
In total, police say Delawder stole $17,100 worth of tickets.


This is a good example of why I say that lotteries are a tax on the innumerate.

$20.00 says the lottery officials will NEVER, EVER state how much she "won".  Doing this would show how much of a fark fest scratch-offs really are.

You can just imagine the thought process resulted in $17k of tickets used: "I just need to win X and then I can pay back what I have stolen."

So you gambled and lost in a lottery thread.
Interesting.

If only you had refreshed.

/I'm guessing the lottery commissions have psychologists measuring just how much people need to win in small amounts to keep hope, and how much to win in large amounts to keep playing

Let's call it a draw. The clerk said it, not the Lottery Officials so technically speaking I am still right. But wrong too.

She should have stolen ones with the second chance plays on them, that way if they weren't winners she could enter another sweepstakes.

<csb>Up until 10 or 15 years ago, scratch off tickets had a code printed (in small text) on them at the bottom of the area you scratched off. People who sold them figured out they could scratch just that part and then buy the winners.</csb>

RTFA.
$3000. From $17,100 worth of tickets.
That's a payout of 17.5%.
