I run a pool down at my job in which we play Powerball and Lotto.  In addition, I buy Lotto for myself and if the jackbot breaks $100 million, Powerball as well.  Powerball.com is usually good about getting the winning numbers up quickly, so I usually check the numbers immediately after the drawing.  However, Louisiana doesn't always get the Lotto numbers posted right away, so I check them the next morning either on the website or in Email. 

For Powerball, I always check the Powerball number first then after that, the rest of them.  If my tickets don't win, I usually toss them immediately.

        I'm with you MegaWinner.... I wait until the next day because, I don't want to ruin my evening or, on the winning side I don't want to lose any sleep from the excitement of a win which is rare. I have so many ways of checking numbers I have several phone numbers and dozens of websites so, I can easily find out what the numbers are for PB,MM,3 digits, 4 digits and 4 or 5 lottos. Tonight I'm looking for 999 and 1995 in DE.

                                                                                    GOOD LUCK

        NOT winning the lottery should not ruin your evening - unless you mortgaged the house on a 'sure thing' that wasn't.....

          After I check my tickets they are added to the roll of toilet tissue.

            Number one rule, if the guys make stupid play,that cost points or good field position they are fined 1000.00 and no gatorade until they do better.

            there are times when it is ok to go for it on fourth and one.

            Draft good recievers.

            It is ok to hit the ref on a really bad call.

            1) - 1000 is NOTHING - they get paid no matter what so half of them don't care (and half do care).

            2) - It depends on a lot of things

            3) - They NEVER draft slouches (sic), but once a guy gets a nice signing bonus, and a guaranteed contract, 3/4 don't care anymore...

            4) - No, it's not.

              Ouch!  But very frugal of you.  Puts a whole new meaning to "being on a roll."

                  I don't know about all these comments we've made lately.  Could this mean we are anal?

                  You really crack me up, Pac.  (Oh, I said that tongue-in-cheek)
