Smart idea...never thought to sign the ticket even if it was a gift because they can't claim it without you!

That is completely absurd! It's not their ticket if you endorse the back of it. BEARER INSTRUMENT.

 

I want to win like every other player but not that desperate that I would buy lottery tickets as stalking stuffers and endorse them before I distribute them. My family and friends are not SHELL CORPORATIONS that house my assets - lol!

    Sign your tickets, I don't care if you buy them with your brother, your mother or the local church pastor. I sign all my tickets, even the ones I give as gifts. 

    I may give a ticket as a gift, but I am <snip> sure not stupid enough to let you walk away with millions and I get nothing in the event the ticket turns out to be a winner.

    VenomV12, the above is not a good "GIFT" to give to someone.  It essentially would indicate that if the ticket won the minimum prize of $2, or so, that you would be requiring half of that to go to you.  $1 is a cheap gift of you indeed!!!

    To extend this line of thinking if you, VenomV12, gave someone a "gift" of  a watch, it shouldn't be exciting OR well received by them if the receiver then turns the watch over to read your name engraved into the back side!!! 

    Such a bizarre, unhelpful, insulting, and unreasonable behavior would probably soon end what ever thin relationship existed between two people. I think you should cease this practice from now on.

      Did you go to school?

      The analogy of a watch compared to a lottery ticket that is capable of winning millions is completely offbase. 

      If you give a watch as a gift there is no reason to engrave your name on the back, there is no chance of it producing vast sums of money in the future. I am pretty sure a $150 Seiko is not going to end up being worth $20 million anytime in the future. 

      And to answer the question of signing the back of the ticket to the others, you know there is room on the back for more than one signature. I sign it, they sign it also and if anyone gives me tickets and I make them sign it also even if they don't want to. It keeps everyone honest and there are no bad feelings. 

      It is idiotic to suggest that if someone wins $2 I am going to ask for $1 back. For one, the small prizes, usually under $500, can be cashed without having to go to the lottery office anyway and without signature verification so that is not even an issue. 

      I have lived long enough on this earth to know not to trust human beings. It is nice to assume that if you gave someone a ticket and they won millions that they would be good people and share some of the winnings with you. The reality is that 9 out of 10 times they won't. This method also keeps your sanity so that you don't sit up at night agonizing over the fact that you bought the once in a lifetime winning ticket and gave it away and now you have nothing. 

      I bought a ticket for the Powerball today with my brother and we both signed it. If it wins, we split the money evenly, end of story, no arguments, no issues. 

      We all come on this board because we play the lottery and want to win it, don't tell me that if you gave someone a ticket and it won millions and then they told you to take a hike and were giving you nothing you would just shrug your shoulders and walk away, you would be livid and would smash everything in sight.

          if i got a ticket with someones name on the back , as a present, id tear it up infront of them, save any dramas later.

           

          as to the what would i do if the ticket won?

          it only ever cost me $5 or what ever, im only ever down $5. actually its rather a cheap present. If i was to resent someone winning i wouldnt buy them a ticket., period.

                  the only thing worse than joining a lottery pool is buying a lottery ticket and give it to someone as a gift. if you sign it before you gift it you look like a cheap chump. if you don't sign it and it wins, and the recipient doesn't give you a slice (at least 45%) then you will feel like a chump. it is by far the worst gift you could ever give anyone (stocking stuffers or whatever) just give them the cash and let them buy their own ticket if you must.

                    seems to be a lot of heated opinion on the   buy a ticket as a gift  subject. and although i do do it, I put their name on the back.

                    i gotta say who is right in any of this? people have their opionins and values, and we all think ours are right. for venom the right thing to do is what he does., for me the right thing is what I do, and for Faber the right thing is give cash.

                    lets not get caught in absolutes, for ea of us there is acceptable and unacceptable. as long as we make it clear when people  cross the line in our lives. well all get along.

                      I don't know what state you live in, but in Texas, they will only pay out to one individual, or actually cut one check. They will not split a payout among 2 or more people.

                      If you are afraid a ticket you give away will be a winner, might as well not give it away in the first place.

                        Ah so you want part of the winnings in the gifts you give? I don't know about your family or pastor but I wouldn't want to be part of any of that. Its sneaky and down right dishonest. You want to appear generous so you pretend to give only you're not giving. 

                        Anyways the Florida guy who was denied the jackpot is just being greedy. Without evidence that the two have been buying tickets together and planned to share the jp should they win, his story has no legs to stand on. I'm glad the judge sent out this powerful message to the parasites out there lurking in the shadows and waiting.

                          Had to comment on this one...

                           

                          With that kind of thinking, why do you just NOT give lottery tickets away to begin with? What?

                            This guy must be taught the idea of goodwill - doing a good thing and expecting no direct benefits from it and being totally cool about it.  I mean, why bother giving gifts if you are so sleepless and stressful that those gifts might benefit others and you won't be able to cash in. Wow and I thought I have problems.
