SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) — If you’re feeling lucky while filling up your gas tank, soon you may be able to buy a lottery ticket right from the pump in California.
If approved, gas pump screens would ask if you want to buy a lottery ticket for Mega Millions, Powerball, or Super Lotto Plus games.
Players would be able to choose a game, and swipe an ID to prove their age.
If the prize is less than 600 bucks, winnings can go straight to a credit or debit card.
California driver Julie Exley told KPIX 5 she was behind the idea.
“I think the lottery’s a great idea. Not a bad idea. It’s one extra way to make some money for the state,” she said.
