    I don't check them. Based on prior experience when my tickets have been winners, they start vibrating and make a b-line for my lotto winners

      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.

      The UFOs are trying to tell you that you are burning your money by buying lottery tickets.

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

          And with us being in the Pacific NW, we seldom have to worry about hearing that the jackpot hit nearby... except that MM last year that was split between WA and Idaho.

          I hope I'm not too paranoid about double-checking tickets. I just want to be thorough. When I hear the occasional story about the newspaper that printed the wrong numbers for a particular draw, I never feel that bad for the person who thought they had won and found out about the error... I feel bad for the unknown number of people who checked their numbers and tossed their tickets and will never know for sure.

            I normally check online in the morning.  Sometimes I forget though!

                I check 'em on LP that night.

                I used to play TN Cash occasionally but quit after learning that the TN Lottery moves with the speed and agility of a Giant Three-Toed Sloth when it comes time to report the winning numbers. Screw them, I'm usually passed out drunk and comatose when they get around to reporting them an hour or two after the drawing.

                Virginia's State Games are better anyway.
