I would be more concerned if I forgot where I put the ticket rather than where I bought it.....


So true.

    Trusted Attorney??? ThudWould that NOT be considered somewhat impossible?And if it is by some remote and far-fetched reach of imagination, once you have collected, do you think you could still trust the Attorney?My suggestion is the heck with the Attorney; bring armed body guards, mercenaries would more likely be the most loyal to you since at least they have a code of honor.Dang…I sure hope one day I really have that problem to be concerned about.Have fun Folks,

      Surely you folks realize not every place that sells tickets has camera surveillance ?

      And some that you think do - don't.

      And others that do - it isn't working.

       

      I still say - buy it and SIGN IT - at the same time you buy it.  You got anything else to do for 5 seconds ?

        No, no....I remember laying the ticket on the counter, I remember the numbers I played, I just don't remember what store I was in.

          Believe it or not, there are lawyers out there that you can trust. You just gotta look,  just like everything else, you only hear of the bad ones. LOL jarasan.

            I haven't played scratch offs in a really really long time, but here in MO the store that sold the ticket use to put stamps on the back where you sign them stating the name of the store. They may not do that anymore. Use to be you could only return a winner to the store you bought it from. That has changed. As far as online tickets (p3, p4) they have store codes on the bottom. That never changes. If you want to know what store you bought one in. Go to all the stores you visit and ask them to print a drawing for you (if you don't want to buy a new ticket) and compare codes on the bottom. If you bought it in one of those stores you will find a match.

               When you hit a jackpot they'll ask you the questions guesser suggested....then you'll name places where you buy your tickets.....

              they they'll tell you none of those places are lottery outlets, some odd music will start playing, and Rod Serling will appear. then you'll know you're in

                I remember those episodes justxploring, does that mean we are getting a little age on us?

                Heck I have been in the twilight zone for years just living in this world.

                Even if you bought your ticket in Willoughby, the Lottery folks would know it, they know everything by the number codes on the ticket.  They created the twilight zone to protect themselves.   Their are no secrets when you play the lottery.

                F

                "Getting" a little age?? LOL  I was shopping in a department store and, in the dressing room, I commented while looking in the mirror "Why I have the body of a 30 year old" and the saleslady answered "Well, you better give it back to her because you're getting it all wrinkled!" LOL

                At this point I don't care if the Lottery knows every move I make, every breath I take (although I'd rather Sting watch me) as long as I win something!  Just couldn't bring myself to buy a raffle ticket tonight but am building up the courage!  I am invited out to a Thanksgiving feast, but since I've become old I actually look forward to a dull evening at home.  Enjoy.

                  The Twilight Zone is my all-time favorite TV series, and Rod Serling is the coolest TV personality ever. I just recently acquired the complete collection of Twilight Zone episodes on DVD. Now, all I have to do is find about 75 spare hours to watch them all.

                  I suppose remembering the Twilight Zone does date us a bit, but those were great times. I can recall wishing at times that I could visit and experience some of the places and things in that series. I always wanted to go to Vegas after seeing the episode about the guy who became obsessed with beating that slot machine. I have been to Vegas a number of times, but fortunately, I never ended up jumping out the window of my hotel room.

                  It certainly can't hurt to remember where you buy your lottery tickets; however, I doubt that the failure to remember that fact alone would prevent you from claiming a major prize. It might make for good supporting evidence if another person tries to falsely claim ownership of the ticket though.

                  I once won $1000 on a 6/42 game. When I went to cash the ticket, the guy asked me where I bought it. I told him that I didn't remember, and he said it didn't really matter and I could just make a guess. I told him the name of a place (which I later realized was wrong), he made out my check, and I was on my way to the bank.

                  Nothing ever came of the fact that I didn't remember where I'd bought that ticket, but I do make a point to remember that information now. I want all my ducks in a row if I ever manage to hit the big one.

                    Yeah, the old Twilight Zones were great - sooooo many actors got their start doing one-off bit parts in them, I remember seeing Bruce Dern, Jack Nicholson and a whole bunch of others in them.

                     

                    Other shows like 'Route 66', 'Flipper', '12 O'Clock High', even the original 'FBI' series, all great shows, all simply done, they can't make shows like that anymore, even if they wanted to.

                        Since there are some TZ and Rod serling fans here, this is one heck of a story:

                        http://www.uua.org/uuhs/duub/articles/rodserling.html 

                        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                        Lep

                        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                             So justxploring's numbers finally hit, she had indeed played them....and decided to take her lunch in the bank's vault, with a good book. 

                            How did you know I wear glasses?  Actually, I don't use them for reading.  But I do remember Burgess Meredith and how that episode ends.

                            By the way, think of what would happen if you were a compulsive lottery player and the only person left on Earth. Eek

                              That was a great read on Rod Serling. It's a shame he died so young. It seems that he was truly an inspired person with a deep passion for his work.
