        You didn't include the option of letting Mr. Patel check the ticket for me. Clown

        Nah... That's 'how' do you check your ticket.

        - carefully
        - not carefully

          That appears to be the case, CD.

          I think ohfudge wants me to go hang myself.

          If he's not careful, he's gonna hurt my feelings.

          You know how sensitive I am.

            I all the time go outside in the bright sun and check 'em with a magnifying glass to be sure.

            But the strangest thing keeps happenin'.

            They keep catchin' on fire!

            I think it's got somethin' to do with the UFO's.

            The Sheriff won't take my calls anymore.

            Nodding head quietly while sippin' iced-tea... Yep its them U-FO's at it again!  And you KNOW why the Sheriff isnt taking your calls (or anyone elses)... out chasing U-FO's.

            I check my numbers at night before I get to sleep.  Since my sleep schedule is rather skewed anyways I am still up.  Also being up that late it allows me to have UFO-awareness.  ANY sudden bright light I will notice much easier... um-hmm - yes.

              I suppose mine would be "first thing in the morning".  I wrote a script that runs in the middle of the night and checks my tickets for me (obviously it requires me to tell it what numbers I played beforehand).  Said script then e-mails me the results; if I've won anything, it also tells me how much I've won.

                  I live in AZ and I don't think any channels here have the PB/MM drawings live. I usually check the numbers after 10 PM because that's when all of our game results are posted on the AZLottery website. Although I know the MM/PB results are availible online at least 1-2 hours before 10PM I'd rather be disappointed all in one sitting :P

                    oh5,  surrrrrrrrrrrrre, be glad to assist you..the "help" refers to "any/all L.P personnel contributing statements"....you know, like the workers are "the help" on a project......Ever heard of that old term before ?

                        I check them after the draw about 30 minutes after then I wait to see if there is a rollover so another hour or two after that and then I go to bed.-weshar75

                          I check my PB and MM the next day, as early as I remember.  I'd never save a bunch to check at the same time, because I wouldn't be confident that I checked the right ticket against the right drawing day, so it's better for me to do all tickets for each drawing at once.

                          I check my Weekly Grand (Idaho draw game) right after the draw because they hold it at 8 pm, so I'm still up.  I'll often check it again the next morning after I've checked my PB numbers, just to make sure there wasn't a mix up on the numbers they post on their website.

                            Curious to see what other habits people have. I check to see where the jackpot and the 5+0's are. If they weren't in my state, I move on with my day. I may sit on a month's worth of tickets before checking them. I also double and triple check and still have a hard time conceding that they aren't winners.

                            I do the same as WesternRedDoug, except that I don't usually double and triple check my tickets.

                              They stopped showing the drawing live on KCAL in SoCal, so I wait a minute or so, and someone always post the numbers on twitter. That's where I check them.
