Papa Toc's convenience store, on the corner of Salem and Arkham. Home of booze, candy, soda and of course lottery tickets.
“Give me a lotto ticket too.” This is really just shorthand for the phrase, “I would like to donate this money to the state in exchange for that fancy slip of colored paper that I will hold as proof of my inability to grasp basic concepts in high school mathematics!” The state takes your dollar, it goes into a giant pool with all the rest, and members of the senate frolic around in the giant money pile. Every now and again someone defies the odds and the state cuts them a check.
