As confirmed by Texan news outlet KRIS 6 NEWS, the Texas Lottery Commission has revealed that cash register paper will be used to print Powerball and Mega Millions tickets, thereby making it easier for players to buy lotto tickets.
Available when visiting the Business Centers of participating Texas H-E-B stores and referred to as a receipt voucher, the move sees Texas becoming the first state in the US to give players the ability to buy lotto tickets on their receipts.
The new game tickets can be bought at any H-E-B Business Center cash register, with Quick Pick numbers printed directly on the game along with a lottery barcode.
Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery, talked to KRIS 6: “Texas continues to break ground with ‘in-lane’ lottery solutions that provide our players direct access to the games they love in the most convenient ways possible.
“These tickets look different than any other that the Texas Lottery has ever produced, as they are the first lottery tickets ever printed on cash register receipt paper rather than on lottery rollstock by a dedicated lottery terminal.”
The receipt tickets will remain valid up until the next available Powerball or Mega Millions draw, with the barcode on the ticket able to be scanned using the Texas Lottery App where the winning status can be checked.
