PA rules state that amounts of $600 or more in pay out, the original ticket must be scanned , paperwork filed and the ORIGINAL CLAIMED Ticket must remain with the Authorized Lottery retailer for mailing in. So no, tickets must be authenticated, and therefore are not kept by the claimant. Imagine keeping your jackpot powerball ticket after claiming it! It just doesnt work that way...It must be turned over for authenticating. 

to the OP, curious why you are speculating oneway or the other, the reality is...its unknown and will stay that way. Keep your eyes moving forward , good fortune will catch up with you :)

I want to also respond to your Powerball comment.

I think you are 100% backwards on this, and I'm finding it hard to believe nobody else has mentioned this.  I can't imagine anyone leaving their jackpot-winning ticket with the lottery agent, with the hope that they will mail it in.  If you truly believe this is the right approach, I think you need to know that it is absolutely the WRONG approach!!

Any time a ticket is scanned as a big winner, do not put your trust in a lottery retailer, send it in yourself, or else take the ticket in person to lottery HQ (or a regional claim center).

    Personally I would never mail a ticket. While I can't remember ever having a letter lost in the mail, would I want to take that chance with a really big winner? I would just make the 3 hour drive to Austin and not have to sweat whether the ticket made it or not.

    And I would never under any circumstances leave a winning ticket with a retailer to "mail" for me. Todd, I read that too, and I just shook my head and said "ok, whatever". LOL.

      I Agree!  You'd have to be a very trusting dufus to mail anything of that importance.   Jester

        The clerk was pretty non-chalant and he was like you won$10 with a pretty straight face.

        do you remember the date? you can check when it was set and check the possible winner

          Maybe the barcode was printed badly and the message was cannot process see clerk.

            I often have the scanner read "SEE CLERK" when I scan my keno tickets, while my MM and PB scan perfectly fine.

            Maybe it was just the game, or a bad barcode, etc. 

            The point is, there is nothing you can do about it now, so instead of worrying, put your energy toward winning big in the future!  :)

             

            Good luck!

                  For some reason this is killing me. Several years back I just started to play super lotto and I scanned my ticket on a lotto scanner and it said congratulations see clerk. I don't recall checking the ticket numbers and gave it to the clerk and he scanned it and said I won $10 or $11 dollars I don't remember exactly. Just wondering if he possibly ripped me off, like i might have gotten more money and he just decided to swap the ticket. Don't know why but i Keep thinking about it. For some reason I keep thinking I won several thousand or even a jackpot.-Jeff in SF

                  It seems like you got ripped off.You should move forward and learn from your mistake. How about playing the lottery for 20 years and not winning a second prize or the jackpot. That could be you in 20 years from today. Good luck.
