Just the other Day. I put $20 into a scratchoff ticket vending machine and noticed that the credit displayed was $25, somebody had put a five in and left effectively giving me an instant $5 win albeit only redeemable for more tickets. I put in another $1 to make $26 so that I could buy one $20 Blockbuster and two $3 Match and Win tickets. One of the Match & Wins won $4 so I guess that was my payout from that $5 left in the machine. I'm sure I've probably done the same, left credits for someone else to claim by accident, the odds of benefiting from another's misfortunate is probably as good as winning the lottery but I'd rather win the lottery, had I seen who was before me, I would've offered them the $5 credit but there was no one at the machine when I approached.
