So I had to go to local office as I accidently tore a $100 scratcher(my biggest win so far in any league) last evening :-( This was my first visit to a local lotto office and i imagined myself in the line with a $1mil plus ticket in hand someday in the future.

    I think they need a new Powerball banner, I guess the sun toasted it and made it curl up. Did you manage to get your 100USD win from the ticket.

     

    PartyEnjoy the money, hopefully you have to go back there for 1M.

      I accidently tore the scratcher to 4 pieces..They gave me a scotch tape to stick it back together, then filled a claim form, copy of my CA drivers license and a note on a notepad saying that I accidently tore the ticket. They took copies of everything and gave copies to me and took the originals. And said I will get a check in 4 to 6 weeks..

          Thanks for the pics, mnsweeps. Kinda interesting seeing what the other states places look like.

          Nice to see the sunshine and no snow on the ground too, lol.

          Good luck!

                    Nice pics. They would'nt cash it at the store? Had a machine cut tickets in half and i just scotch taped them.

                      I see playslips. Did they also have scratch ticket bins or vending machine there?

                        There was no vending machine there. But there was a scanner you can use to validate your tickets.

                          I did not try any store. I thought I will take this opportunity to actually visit my closest local office which is about 18 miles from where I live (Stevenson Ranch CA).

                            The couple you see in picture 2 were cashing a $1000 win on a scratcher :-) I talked to them after they had completed all the formalities..
