Minnesota becomes first state to sell lottery tickets at gas pumps, ATMs
(MCT) — MINNEAPOLIS — Lottery jackpots are growing bigger more quickly, and ticket sales are soaring all over the country. Now Minnesota is the first state to make buying tickets even faster, at gas pumps and ATMs.
With a debit card, driver’s license and cellphone number, buyers can try their luck at a touch screen. The system is being piloted at nine gas stations and 19 ATMs in the Twin Cities, allowing people to buy quick-pick Powerball and Mega Millions tickets without going inside to a counter. Since October, about $5,260 worth of Powerball tickets have been sold that way.
