you can not cancel tickets in TN either for Lotto five or pb

I have people say they didn't want to spend the extra buck.. but actually they would rather give up half the  jackpot instead of spending the extra buck..  I think it is rather funny myself.

I will buy mistakes... who knows maybe they will have to share it with me.. I know I wouldn't mind sharing...

I'm never going to begin my own thread or write a blog entry again.  I guess people will see what they want to see.  Maybe might will be a relief to many, although I get a lot of PMs with nice compliments, asking me to write more.  I just read what I wrote and I NEVER said anything about a ticket that couldn't be canceled or that I refused to pay for the duplicate.  But the comments just go on and on and on.....  This seems to be a pattern lately.

    About 20 minutes ago I stopped to get my Wed evening Lotto tickets.  I handed my 4 cards to the clerk who was very friendly and patient, and she proceeded to run them through the terminal.  She looked as if she was puzzled and I asked if there was something wrong.  She had run one of the 4 cards twice and was trying to figure out which one she missed.  I said I'd be able to tell immediately, since I know my numbers by heart.  (think it's time to fill out new cards?)  She said there was a problem, so I gave her the 6 numbers and she printed my ticket.

    When she handed me my change, I asked where the duplicate ticket was and she said she'd cancel it, but I asked her to please cancel it while I was there, since nobody was waiting anyway.  I was very polite and just blamed it on my quirkiness, but between us lottery nuts, I wanted to see it cancelled. She ran it through the terminal and bold CANCELLED was printed across it. 

    What would you do?  In the past I've even purchased the duplicate ticket, but I didn't want to spend any more money. 

    I believe you did the right thing in asking for the cancellation of the ticket right then & there.

        I wasn't criticizing your thread, I was just pointing out the option you chose is not always available in some situations.  Even though local lottery tickets can be canceled in my state, some clerks will put them aside for the manager to do later. 

        It has never happened to me but I have seen a clerk ask a player with a $600+ ticket to come back later when the manager would be in because she didn't know what was involved in verifying a ticket to receive the money from a bank.

          I did not say you mentioned that the ticket could not be canceled.  I just said in TN we cannot cancel tickets. The people who refuse to pay the extra dollar for the mistake would not mind splitting a jackpot... At least their numbers came.

            Please don't stop writing. I'll just stop being a smart A$$. I was only having some fun that went way out of hand.

              I think you did the right thing too, (lucky you have that option),

              No use in having an extra duplicate ticket floating aroud the store, especially if it had hit. 

              I wonder though.... If the clerk had'nt cancelled the ticket in front of you,

              and it had, happen to hit.

              You'd probably be back at the store today to find out if it was purchased or not before the draw.

              and.....that part might be tricky (not for you, you've already got your ticket)

                My fault....  I see what your getting at,

                You dont want to split a Jackpot with a store owner, because the clerk made a little mistake.

                Was it a Jackpot game?

                    If it's Pick 3, Pick 4, or Pick5, I wouldn't care about a duplicate ticket, but if it's a rolling jackpot game like Pick 6, PowerBall, or Mega Millions, I'm going to buy it. I use my system to pick my numbers, why should an owner of a gas station make millions off my hard work? On the plus side, if I do have 2 tickets that are alike and they win the jackpot, I can have won cash option and one annuity.Big Smile

                      Thanks, yes - exactly.  It was for $3 million (now $6 million) so that's only $100,000 a year for 30 years or about $1.6M less taxes cash.  Of course I'd be thrilled winning 1/2 of that, but only if someone else actually picked the numbers or bought a quick pick ....  not because I handed someone a card and she ran it through twice.  That's all I meant.

                        If I'm playing a jackpot game, I would be pissed if my ticket won the jackpot and come to find out there was a duplicate and the clerk or store owner came to claim that part of the prize. If the clerk prints a duplicate, I want to know about it!!!! I would probably sue if that happened.

                          I believe you might have a legitimate case too.  It certainly wouldn't be a "coincidence" if 2 people won at the same store using the same 6 numbers purchased at the same time.

                          By the way, thanks DD for the comments about my posting.  I didn't say I wouldn't post again, just that I probably won't begin another topic.  I just wrote a blog entry and deleted the whole thing.  I can handle criticism, but I'm really not in the mood lately.  It's been a very rough week.

                            Ya, plus the ticket has "QP6" to the right of each set that is a QP. Therefore, with none of the sets being QPs, I would have credible evidence that the clerk ran my playslip 2 times.
