          It was a scratcher that I don't play found in the trash can next to big blue lottery machine..that makes $215 so far this year; same store.  This one wasn't even scanned, bar code or security thing not scratched off.

          I found a dollar scratch card laying at the top of a trash can that was full as I was walking out of a convenient store one time and just glanced down at it and saw it was 3 sevens in a row...how anyone could miss that is beyond me and they had won a $100...good for me for finding it...was not about to go in the store and give it to the clerk because I feel sure he would have kept it.

          This was before they had the scanners where you can scan it for yourself.

          Actually I've missed some myself but the ones I missed had a win but when I gave it to be cashed it was for more than I had seen and once I threw one in my own trash can & decided to look at it one more time and it was a winner...it's easy to do sometimes.

          One time I missed a win of $25 and it made me so mad I went to another store & bought another one and won $1000 so I was glad I missed it because I would not have bought another one!

          Here's the picture of it...

            I know what you mean Vergie.  Back in 2003, before North Carolina had the lottery but South Carolina did, people were going nuts for the scratch-offs.  Well, I worked on the border of NC/SC and would always get my gas at the same convenience store in SC because it's 30 cents a gallon cheaper than in NC.  I got into the habit of picking up the $5 and $10 scratch tickets that people had thrown away, take them home and check them again.  Dang if I didn't cash in about $400+ in $5-$50 winning tickets in just a few weeks.  One was even a $100 winner!

                  Wow that is amazing.

                  I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Powerball to win the largest Powerball Jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!
