This thread has taught us that if you can handle the thought of someone making a score with a ticket you give them, then you can give ticklets as gifts - but if you can't, don't.

"God loves a cheerful giver"

- Bible 

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

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.

    I Agree!

    And it has happened to me - several years ago when buying some scratchers for myself I bought a couple of tickets for my elderly father from a different game - and one of them was a $1000 winner!! Big Grin Santa

     It never, ever even crossed my mind (nor should it have, IMO) to ask for a piece of it.

      I would give them to close relatives. and I always tell them 10% goes to the house.and of course I am the house.

      especially minors(you got your handling fees to consider).

      my mother in-law gives me scratch off's every year for my birthday. i always win something,last year i won $1000.00. so i took her out to dinner.

        well of course not.  if you gave underwear as a gift you wouldn't expect to share tem.  A gift is just that - no strings attached.

        love to nibble those micey feet.

            Some members have said the same thing about posting predictions.  If you think you would be upset if a ticket you gave as a gift won something then give money instead, that way if a winning ticket is bought with your gift you won't feel as bad.

            If I post predictions, those are numbers I would NEVER play, I try to jinx them into getting my 'good' numbers into play...

                  I'm pretty sure that's not quite the purpose of the predictions feature here.

                  Bad karma, bad, bad karma.

                  That's almost like hexing yourself so the "cosmos" will see to it that the numbers you predict (and don't want to hit) will hit, until you ' get convinced' and start playing them.

                        I give them to my wife all the time because she thinks they will win big.

                        I enjoy watching her anticipation.  FL Mega Ball only draws twice a week so that is the one I choose most often.

                        I always assumed if she won that she would share with me but who knows?

                        She has a special place she puts them until the draw that is a secret to me so maybe I should not be so trusting in her sharing but I am sure she would.

                            I actually encourage my wife to just give me $10 worth of quick pick lottery tickets.

                            As for my step-daughter, I encourage to keep getting me a bottle of Crown Royal for Christmas each year. Damn, she makes a good Daughter. Every dad should be that lucky.

                              I don't buy tickets for anyone except myself, I leared a hard lesson on that.

                              After I purchased a $2 scratcher for my sister and she won $ 4 Grand and didn't mention anything to me about the ticket untill this day.
