      On top of the fridge huh? Reminds me of a female lottery winner years ago who took the winning ticket and put it in a ziplock bag and stashed it in the freezer for * l think months. The catch was this: she presented it to her future husband l think * as a wedding gift. Come to think of it, l will attempt a Google search on this one to refresh my memory. In the fridge mightwin- not on top.Smile

      Maybe the old paper the lottery  used would be ok,  but I walked out with a ticket when it was raining and it got a couple drops on it I didn't think anything of it. When I went to check my tickets the ink was smeared and the ticket was stuck together.I had to carefully pry it apart and the last line of numbers tore a hole in it along with the bar code being torn in the middle. ......my first thought was if I won a decent amount, I hope the michigan lottery wouldn't give me sh*t about not being able to verify the ticket. No moisture at all, keep em dry lol

        Thanks, mightwin, for this rainy day tickets results feedback.  I'll continue being zealous to keep my lottery tickets dry!

          I Agree! but it is kinda risky to have the tickets in your car and forget about them. You could unknowingly bring your car to the repair shop and lose big

          Maringoman, now you're on the right track! 

          Thus far, we've learned, from reading these stories of lottery 1st and 2nd prize winners, that apparently the 'lottery fairies' prefer we gambling people display we are "risk takers."  Consequently, we should display this via gathering at least one month of unchecked online or scratch lottery tickets in:  magic cookie jar inside our house, magic desk drawer inside our house or place of employment, or in center console of our magic box with wheels [vehicle]! 

          What is clear is that we should by no means fester remorse/anxiety regarding CHRONICALLY not checking these lottery tickets!  What is not always clear from these big lottery prize winners is whether we should be placing something on top of these unchecked tickets each time they [nonchalantly] get added to the previous batch.

          Fellow members, am I missing any additional gleaned winner's practice guidelines?  If so, please add below.  Thanks & cheers!

              Thanks for the heads up MW- my advice, always carry an umbrella when rainclouds form overhead.

                I love seeing these kinds of people win too. By "these kinds" I am referring to people that can clearly

                speak and understand the English language. Yes i know that is not a prerequisite of winning the lottery
