My credit card bills are piling up because of the gas I use. So far, the gas has cost me over $35,000.00 in the past 5 years. I need to just check the numbers here at the LP. Much cheaper.

      Buy regular instead of premium. Maybe that's the problem.

      Or take a greyhound bus if you're not offended by stinky people.

        First I usually go to the states website to check but if it's not there I check the USA Mega site.

         

        I usually check a day or two after the drawing so it's almost always on the official state lottery site by the time I go to it. There's a few times I want to check right after the drawing though and sometimes the official site isn't updated for 1-2 hours.

        I just hate that when they update the prize amount and it didn't reset, it means I didn't win the jackpot.

          Same here. Of course I also hate when it DOES reset because it means someone else DID win. I checked both MM and PB yesterday and was like "Woah, both won, maybe I got lucky on one", but alas... no dice.

           

          That's why I usually try to at least get on one of the sites and copy down the numbers so I can check my tickets at a later date and still have some anticipation of whether all the numbers match or not.

            I tired the Greyhound thingy but not for checking my lottery numbers.

            A few years ago I moved to Northern California Via Greyhound ,and it was the worst 6 days of my life. I had hippies with guitars around their necks that stunk to high heaven wanting to chat with me, and a Hare Chrishna that gave me a speech on too much salt intake, who also smelled so bad that the subject of too much salt became obsolete at that moment....lol

            The good news is that once I win a few million, I can then afford a personal helicopter or Learjet to take me to any state I'll be playing in.

              For Powerball, I check powerball.com right after the drawing.  For the rest of the Louisiana Lottery games, I check lalottery.com the next day.

                I try to tune in the idiot box for the actual drawings at 10:59 pm.  If not, I check them soon after on the net.

                  The Hound Dawg quit running to or past where I live a long time ago.  I guess it was because we ain't got no mo hippies with guitars, and ain't never had no hare krishnas around here to ride the bus and annoy you.  Crazy

                           I usually watch the TX lottery Webcast. If I miss it, I go to another TX website that posts winning numbers fairly quickly.

                          Asking a convenience store clerk to check the numbers is a NO NO, given the number of alleged crooks working in those places waiting
                          for some dumb lottery player to come in and ask them to check a ticket.

                          As an aside, it's really sad that so many lottery scratch card players need to have someone else tell them that they have
                          a winner. If you have 3 of a kind, it's usually a winner!

                          It's particularly sad when a player with a big win doesn't know that prizes over $600 have to be confirmed and collected at an official lottery claims
                          center.

                          Have a good one!

                            I get e-mail results for Virginia and Indiana (my brother studies in Indiana and my family and I are all in Virginia). However, I check a lottery results app, Lottery Post, or the state website if they do not send me the results for some reason.

                            Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                            In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                              I used to get the results by email from the Va Lottery. They would come 2 or 3 days after the drawing.

                              So I asked them to cancel the service. They stopped the Cash5 report but I'm still getting the Win For Life report sporadically but still 2 or 3 days late. It's apparently taken on a life of it's own and can't be stopped.

                              VA is much more efficient at hiding in the bushes on Rt 81 and giving out speeding tickets. Bastages.
