Claim processing periods are not affected by the health crisis at this time. The California Lottery and its employees continue to serve as an essential government function.Ricky Patel, the owner of the Woodlawn Market in Jackson Township that dubs itself the “Lucky Lottery store,” estimated his lottery ticket sales for May have doubled. His store has more than 150 types of scratch-off tickets, most of them arranged on plastic cases on the front counter or in red vending machines at the side of the store.

Patel pointed out that casinos and racinos are closed.

“I think all these gambling places closed. That’s why,” he said about the increase in ticket sales. “That’s the main reason. Because a lot of customers tell me they cannot go gamble any other place. So they buy a lottery ticket. People have the extra (stimulus and unemployment) money. They sit at home doing nothing. They get bored.”

He speculated that the sales are driven by residents receiving their $1,200 federal stimulus checks. Or people who have lost jobs may hope to win a prize to offset their losses.

Patel said the scratch-off tickets are more popular than draw-based games where customers wait for a set time per day or per week for the next drawing to take place.

“Because it’s instant. People know right away,” he said. “They scratch the ticket and they know right away whether they win or not. And they don’t have to wait for a draw.”

Around 12:30 p.m. Thursday, a couple of customers bought scratch-off tickets from Woodlawn Market, with one man spending about $60. They went to their vehicles parked outside to scratch off the tickets. For each winning ticket, they came back into the store and exchanged their winnings from the ticket for more tickets.
