    Default Really stupid question

    It's a really stupid question but I'm seriously asking it...

    How do you go about buying a lotto ticket... I never have an thought well I feel this need to so I want to try but I don't know how....

    You may all laugh now.

    You walk in to a news agent and say 'I'd like a $10 quick pick for Saturday night's draw please '

    I've never bought one as it is the worst odds in town, but I think you just go to the newsagent and ask them. I think people often have cards so they can register their purchases.

    All I know is that I have often been stuck behind people in newsagents buying them, and there seem to be multiple nights, you can buy different quantities of games etc.

    Default Really stupid question

    I had never bought one until recently.
    You need to pick which day you want. Then how many rows of numbers you want. Doing it this way is a slip pick I thing. I usually get a 12 game as its about $14 so I ask for a slippick 12 for Thursday say. Hope that's right - I always get a ticket and have won back the $14 a few times. Woohoo!!!

    Default Really stupid question

    I used to work at a newsagent. The most common thing people ask for is a quick pick (I can't remember but there were mega ones, standard ones... and another size.) And just for what game you want (eg. Sat lotto, powerball, oz lotto...)
    Or you can always choose your own numbers and just hand them the form but not too many people bother with that.
