I save my winning powerball tickets and go to the store to cash them in when I get a handful. They always keep the tickets but tonight the lady asked if I wanted them back, explaining they now have to ask the customer if they want them back. There were 9 tickets total, all winners of small amounts. I said yes, collected my winnings and old tickets and left.
When i got home, I noticed I left one ticket here, so I grabbed it and went to ANOTHER store to cash it in (I was embarrassed to go back to the first store). The lady asked if i wanted to the winning ticket back, I said yes, but the second lady there grabbed the ticket, ripped it up and said they were not allowed to give back winners.
So, who is right? Am I allowed to keep the winners after they are paid or not? Since they were checked, I assume they cant be paid out again and I will toss them anyways. Just wondering if we are allowed to keep cashed in winners or not.
