I just read the FAQ on the online lottery site and it states that they do not provide any type of copy of the ticket to the purchaser.

I don't think they even tell you what numbers you have and they keep the ticket in their possession. I don't believe they have had a jackpot winner yet but I wouldn't be surprised if they just closed up shop and run off with the winner.

Also if you win a smaller amount, they will cash your ticket and keep the proceeds in your online account to be used towards future purchases.

 

I think I'll pass up on this deal and just hope the MM rolls over. With the way tickets are selling, I am pretty sure someone will win tonight...it definitely won't be me as I didn't have a chance to get a ticket Unhappy

      I would rather see the money go to someone who bought one $1 ticket than someone who bought $100 worth. If you can afford to spend that much on the lottery, you really don't need to win. Reality will change for 1 or more people tonight, that's for sure. It just seems so easy...6 numbers. Whenever I look at the winning numbers and realize I haven't matched any, I always think about how easy it could have been to just pick those. Either way, someone is sitting out there right now dreaming about how crazy it would be to win and what they'd do if they won, only to realize that they are the one who was struck by lightning. I'm holding my metal umbrella up high tonight!!!

        In the words of Han Solo "Never tell me the odds!". I'm in it for the dream, for the little lift it gives me, for the place I can rest my heart and mind after a hard day, it gives me something to look forward to at the end of every Fri and Tue. Just think for the price of a coke I can win a million dollars.

        Just think of all the Cokes you could by then!!!

          1.2 million tickets per hour in one state alone [NJ] is stagering to the imagination!! Crazy When it's big [over 100M] I always hope there WILL be multiple winners, so more than one person's life changes! And YES I still would feel that way even if I were one of the lucky winners! I would not at all mind sharing $370M with say 9 other people!! Hyper SO GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY DREAMS TO THOSE OTHER 9!!

                This is very true, DD. And to think, I bought a ticket in Savannah on Saturday. We were on a cruise ship and I forgot to buy for two drawings last Tuesday, so I missed last Friday's drawing. Boy was I glad to see $340 million on the billboards when I got into Georgia Sat. night!

                      Good luck to all Lottery Post members who have MM tickets! I could not see the long drive to get tickets myself.

                        Best of luck to all!

                        I just returned from the store.  One of those 2x2 foot convenience store/closets at the gas station...line wasn't too bad, only 4 or 5 people...then again, I've never seen another person buying tickets there before.  Put down $8....including $1 on a quickpick, which I never do!

                        C'mon Yolanda...bring it.

                          My 1st instinct was to ask why you didn't just get $10 even, but ya know what, it only takes $1 and a dream. But you said it...bring it on Yolanda!!!Banana

                            To all those silly posters who stated "If I win I will buy Todd a vet" Why would Todd want a purchased animal doctor? golly dats just silly!

                            "To win" doesn't  affirm the grandprize (JACKPOT), it simply is a winning ticket, of maybe two dollars or seven dollars in winnings.

                            Clarification in promises is so important.

                            I'm impressed by some of the statistics I am reading here today. Thank you to those who posted such.  I truly want to win the JACKPOT tonight , and then be like Elmer Fudd and be Berry berry 'twiet!
