Where do you keep your lottery tickets? I keep mine in my wallet so I don't lose it since I'm less likely to lose or forget about it.

    I usually keep my tickets in my wallet or on my refrigerator if I got a lot.

        On a knick-knack shelf, under a "Lucky Leprechuan", Lep  at least two of those "cut this out and keep your ticlets on it" "lucky" things (triangle and a "Blue Coyote" right now) from the tabloids.

        Wink

        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 don't keep tickets unless they're winners. I throw away all losing tickets either the same night as the drawing or the next day.Jester

            I know people save tickets in case they win big, and deduct the losses from the taxes owed. I just can't imagine myself winning 20 million after taxes, one lump, and worring about a lousy 2 to 3 thousand in one year's accumulation of losing tickets. It just wouldn't be worth the energy and time.    Big Grin Angel

              I keep all the winning tickets in the pockets of strangers I have never met. I only track the losing tickets. Cool part is, I don't have to pay taxes on the winning ones.

              LOL...have fun folks

                I keep mine on my desk right next to my computer under a pile of "lucky" pennies.  You know, the ones you find in the parking lot, heads up, right before or right after you buy your ticket and you just know that this time, this penny is the key to having the winning ticket.  lol

                  What if you don't win 20 million or so, but something just enough to be reportable? Wouldn't you want to write the losers off against that?

                    Most of the time, in my purse. But the larger Jackpot tickets are placed in a small file box on my desk that hold the recepts for winning tickets that I have cashed in. In hope that the recepts will generate a win on the ticket that has not yet played. HaHaHa....... sounds crazy, doesn't it.

                          This question has been asked before.  I'm terrible at searching.  Maybe someone else can find the threads.

                          99% of the time I keep them in the plastic lottery sleeve and put it on my desk next to the computer when I get home.  I put the tickets in between the cards before I place it in my pocketbook so they don't get lost. 

                          If I buy a QP then I usually place it in a small zipper compartment in my pocketbook until I get home and then I'll just add it to the rest of the tickets until I check the numbers.  If I lose (which is most of the time) I then throw the tickets into a shoebox.  I've always done that, and not just for tax purposes.  I don't want to read one of those announcements that a ticket wasn't claimed and realize it was the one I threw out.  Okay, so it sounds weird and paranoid, but mistakes happen.
