      Please remember to not let the game expire on you.

      That would be really really bad.

        Why, yes, I did save some tickets once.  I saved all the way to $28. 

        That was exciting.

        Then the cashier said, "No, you don't get 28 - you get 23."  Apparently "Double Play Daily" had some kind of catch to it.  Shysters.

        That was the LAST time I hoarded my tickets.

            I save my winning tickets. But I keep check to make sure those tickets have not closed out.  I have $678 right now but I'm going to cash some of them in. The store I get my lucky tickets from closed and reopened with new owners. Lottery hasn't started back yet.

              I only save my $500 winners!!! AFTER I cash them!!! The cashiers at my Publix are cool with it, they cash in the $500, and let me keep the ticket as a souvenir. It probably helps that I slip them a $20 every time I cash in a $500 winner.

                Really?  They let you keep your tickets after you cash them in.  Evidently the laws are state specific then, cuz we are not allowed to do that here - unless I siply have had surly clerks.  (which is possible)

                  Not sure if it has anything to do with laws, etc...  It seems to be more of a process. For instance, the ticket itself isn't proof that the clerk paid the prize: There's a print-out from the lottery terminal that they have to keep. The ticket is useless once it's cashed. The terminal knows it was cashed, and the print-out is the 'receipt'. Usually, the clerks staple that print-out to the ticket and keep it in a separate bin, etc... but the ticket really isn't necessary. It's all in the system, and the print-out is what really matters for the retailer. Of course, some clerks don't know that, or don't think about it that way, etc... So, I usually just cash my big winners at my usual Publix where they know me--and let me keep the ticket.
