I just read a story that was released by the Associated Press that wrote about a couple that tried to cash in a winning ticket that they thought was worth $150.00 but was worth much more. How do you mistake a $250.000.00 win for $150.00.

If I have a ticket with a win of $150.00, you better believe, I'm checking that ticket at least 10 more times to see if any of the other winning numbers are connected to it.

This couple was lucky that the store clerke was an honest person. They could have walked away with a big loss.

They claimed anonymously. Congratulations to them.

      I've found mistakes with scratch-off winners that I have had. But' because I don't throw my tickets away until I have rechecked them at home, I was able to find some wins that I over looked when scratching the tickets in the store.
