California Lottery Plans to Pump up the Profits

Lotto-loving motorists in California may soon be able to take a chance on the lottery while they fill their cars with gas.

If the new plan is approved players will be able to choose a game from screens on the front of the pumps and play Mega Millions, Powerball, or Super Lotto Plus while they top-off their tanks.

Players would also be able to use the pump readers to claim smaller wins—up to $600—and have the winnings placed on their credit or debit card.

But before players could play any of the California Lottery games they would need to prove their age by swiping an ID card.
