I had this happen to me, but it wasn't a million dollar ticket. I wanted a $5.00 5x's the money ticket and they gave me a $5.00 Jumbo Bucks ticket and I scratched it off and won $1000.00. I often ask the store clerk if they have any powerball tickets people decided they didn't want and have won off them a few times, but not a huge win ,but still a win.

I win at least $500.00 on average a week off of Tn Lottery Scratch off's. Everyone that works at the Memphis District office know me by name.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL :)

    Welcome to Lottery Post SmokyMountains and good luck to you.

    Congratulations on your $500 a week winnings, that's pretty impressive.

    How much do you have to spend a week to win that much?

      I really don't spend a lot. I spend on average around $20 a week. I just always seem to be at the right place at the right time. I do better with scratch off's then the jackpot games and I always look at the website for remaining prizes so I don't waste my money.

      I am not new. My old screen name was tnlottodreamer. My email changed and I couldn't get into it to reset the password so I had to create a new account. I wish I still had my old account. Just can't rememer the password...ugh :)

        I  do the same thing   Smoky

         

        If they have a ticket  the few places that I play ( a mistake walk away ticket on the  PB  or  MM  ) ,    they   will   usually  tell me about them  ,  as they know I will buy them  )

         

        I win small amounts  on them quite often also it seems  ( but no big winners  yet  )

         

        I do this because   many  years  ago   a friend of mine ( I met her years  later  after  it  happened  , but heard about it for many  years ) ......  she worked at a place in Ohio and someone came in and I  think wanted certain  numbers and she punched  one number wrong and they did not want the ticket......so she got him another one the  way he wanted it and that was that

         

        Nobody wanted the ticket..........when she left   later  she   bought  it........

         

        If I remember   correct........we are   talking   15   or  17    Million  (  yes ......   thats  million  with  an    M    )

         

        This was back in the days  before  PB  and  MM   

         

        There  were  two  winners  that night ( once  again if  I  remember   correct  )  on   around  30  million  or  so  ,  so they split it of course 

         

        Her   ticket  was  one  of   the    winners

         

        I understand  some  tried  to claim the ticket  later ..............but it was hers and thats the way it should be

         

        Morrow  of  the    story.........never leave a mistake ticket  behind  ( but I watch people do it all the time to this very  day  )
