The Lotto Store at Primm is one the world’s busiest lottery stores. The store, which is about 50 feet across the California state line, south of Primm’s outlet mall, sells a whole lot of lottery tickets. It’s the closest place to get lotto tickets if you live in Las Vegas.
Despite Nevada being the most famous gambling state in the nation, it doesn’t run a lottery or participate in lotteries such as Powerball or Mega Millions. Therefore, Southern Nevada residents often go to Primm to purchase their lottery tickets.
In addition to Powerball, Mega Millions, scratch tickets, and more, visitors can also buy California’s lottery SuperLotto Plus tickets.
The Lotto Store has at least 8 self-serve lottery machines and cashiers. There are different options to buy including pick your own numbers, scratch tickets, vending machines, and counter registers. When jackpots grow large, lines can snake around the store.
The Lotto Store has a reputation for paying out some big prizes. One winner in the store won a prize of $2.1 million.
In addition to lottery tickets, The Lotto Store also sells beer, energy drinks, sports drinks, water, teas, and sodas. It also has restrooms.
The store has a themed appearance, similar to the nearby Primm Valley Resort.
The store is located on Lotto Store Rd and has a Nipton, California address, even though the small community of Nipton is more than 15 miles away, and Lotto Store Rd is entirely on the Nevada side of the border.
The Lotto Store has more than two dozen parking spots and can be reached from Vegas in as little as 40 minutes. Avoid going on the weekend for smaller crowds.
South of the store, Primm ends and the desert terrain extends into the nearby Ivanpah Dry Lake.
