Problems I wish I had....while I sat there biding my time to claim it once the sticker shock had worn off.

    I don't think I would recover if I found that ticket after it expired.

    Over here the lottery comission just extended the expiration from 13 weeks to 3 years + the time until December 31, so little risk of that happening to me.

      That's a huge jump in expiration times I think...maybe too long?

      This morning found four lottery tickets just laying around from November, checked them all and naturally not a winner among them.  (they were all out of state).

      Here's to Angela keeping the Donald in line!!

        I think those are the new expiration dates on the law books, they apply to a slew of items which I know nothing about. 

        I don't think anything can keep the Donald in line, not even the courts.

              .

              People, you must keep track of your doggone tickets.

              4.5 million is nothing to sneeze at.

              I wish I had that missing ticket.
              (though something tells me the winner is just waiting until the last minute to cash in).

              • Don't chase the numbers you play.
              • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
              • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.
                         (so far, though, I've yet to win any significant lotto prize)
              • Oh, but always know where your tickets are, as well as your ticket's deadline.

                  I Agree!  Ticket handling must become a priority among players. Tickets are like cash, "For a small piece of paper it carries a lot of weight". I hope I got that quote correct. I believe it was in a song.

                    Wow. I don't think it's my ticket.
