I went to the store to by 818 and the clerk gave me 181.  Lucky I noticed it before I got home, I did keep the ticket and went back and got the 818.

Curious what other people do?  Keep it? or go back and turn in the wrong one for the correct one.

Money won is twice as good as money earned!

      I normally keep it, but sometimes your money is funny so you have to give it back and get what you asked for especially if you are feeling the number.

                Yes, because i know where there was a family own store and they made a mistake on the ticket and the customer didn't want it.  They won the powerball just because they made a mistake.   Iwas a nice mistake.

                        If I have enough money, I'll keep the ticket.  If they make a mistake and cancel the ticket I ask them what was the #, and buy it back.  That happened to me one time and i brought the # back and it came out box.  Another time I was buying a # box and the clerk made a mistake and put it straight she asked me If I wanted it straight and I said no only box.  Don't u know when I when to the store to see what # played, I was so mad at myself for canceling the straight ticket.

                          Hey Bashley,

                          You needed a sometimes in your poll, bud.

                          Because sometimes I do, and sometimes I don't.

                          It depends on how much money I have, how I feel about the number, etc...

                          Every mistake I have ever kept has done nothing but cost me extra money.

                          And I have bought quite a few.

                          So me buying mistakes nowadays gets farther and farther between. 

                          Don't Chase... Compare and Narrow

                          The Cheaper the Cost the Higher the Profit

                          Many Winners to You.

                            I Agree! For me it also depends. I have bought a few mistake tickets in the past (other peoples mistakes) if I have the extra money or if I felt they were lucky, but since I always fill out playslips, I don't recall having to buy mistake tickets made by the clerk.

                              I Agree! Keep it, I have actually won on tickets were the clerk put the wrong number in, I had ask for *167* 2x and he gave me *166* 2x and it hit straight I kept them both.
