Sometimes it pays to sell to winners

Everyone asks where all the money goes. Well sometimes, the lottery pays the retailer.

Whenever someone wins the lottery, they aren’t the only one to win. Although the amount varies from state to state, most lotteries pay the retailers who sold the ticket to the winner.

The payment usually ranges from .5%-1% of the estimated jackpot value, or a retailer receives a flat rate regardless of jackpot size.

Whether it is a flat rate or a large percent, it is always good to know that more than one person wins.
