So, how many of you sign your tickets as soon as it's printed or when you get home? Do you feel that it'll help you win?

    I rarely ever invest in MegaM, PB or Lottom and when I do I don't sign the ticket I just play to be in it; However, it doesn't hurt to be positive!

    forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

    Now, does it count??

        Your going to save your losing tickets for tax purposes. If you don't have a big win for which you may need proof of gambling losses aganist your winnings of $600.00 or more, you will throw those tickets in the trash. If you dispose of your tickets in the trash with shreadding them and your signature and address are on them, you open yourself up for idenity thief if those tickets are pulled from the trash by unscrupulous persons.

        Wait to sign those tickets when you know you hold the winner.

          I agree, no sense risking your signature for the bad guys.

              Nope. I don't sign my tickets right after I buy them.

                I don't sign them if they're for that day. I do sign them right away though if they're multi-picks which is what I usually buy. I don't want to take chances if I lose or misplace them. The other day I was looking all over the house for my glasses when I realized I had them on. I can't be trusted.

                  if the only way i can claim a lost ticket is that i have my sig on the back ill sign it. at least if i lose it it still makes  claiming it difficult for anyone who finds it. not that i plan on losing any. here in oz as i always say , we have a membership card and all tickjets [ well almost all] i play are marked as mine. if i dont claim a check is sent.

                  same as signinig really

                    So, how many of you sign your tickets as soon as it's printed or when you get home? Do you feel that it'll help you win?

                    It'll certainly won't help me win but I do sign when the ticket wins a prize large enough to claim at a claim center simply so that should it go missing before I get there, something can be done.   It's more a matter of not trusting people to resist the temptation.

                    There is one consequence of signing which I discovered back at the beginning of December when I had the $1,000 win on a $20 scratch off, they require you to fill out the form exactly as you signed it, if you sign with your middle name, you must fill out the claim form with your middle name. They're very particular about the information on the claim form matching the signature on the back which I guess is the whole point of signing the ticket.

                    Were I financially secure to begin with, I may not sign the ticket till discussing it with a lawyer in order to keep the option of using a trust or corporation to claim the prize open but given my current financial state, I wouldn't want to risk not being able to claim on a large win.

                    Meanwhile that $2 win from the scratch off that I bought last night is going to be claimed unsigned.

                      I won't sign the ticket even if it's the big winner! If I sign it using my name, I can't claim the big win in the name of a trust that I plan to use in claiming the big win!

                      So be careful in what you do with the ticket. I say just keep it in a safe place and "Don't Tell Anyone About The Win" at anytime! And that means especially no family members or anyone else!

                      You say what needs to be said to all of those who are important to you after you have claimed the prize!

                      And most importantly have the financial adviser tie up most of the money as not to go wild with it in a foolish way and to stop most of the people you know from asking for a hand-out or two! If it's tied up, it takes time to get your hands on it and the more time that passes the more likely you're not going to dole out the cash for this or for that or to this or that person!
