Last time I came across a mistake ticket, it was the cashier printing my tickets. He added powerplay, which I did not want, so he printed another without powerplay. But when I said I'd buy the mistake ticket, he said no, he was keeping it.   O_O

Looks like what we have here is a clerk who is superstisious about mistake tix.

    I don't like the sound of that at all, Piaceri.

    By keeping that ticket he created a pool with just you and him so you'd be splitting the JP with him if your numbers came in.

    Guy's gotta be a jerk to say he's keeping it after you asked for it.

      Indeed.  It may even be against lottery regulations.  (I say "may" because I don't know for certain, but it definitely sounds shady.)

      Piaceri, perhaps you should contact your state's lottery commission.  I don't know if they'll investigate, but this should be reported at the very least.

        The cashiers were I get my tickets allways know that I will by all mistake tickets no matter what the price is. I haven't hit on any of them yet, let me give that a big YET. I know when HE is ready for me to win, then it will be worth the wait.

          Well, danny, I dove in head first tonight! I stopped at the Shell to pick up my "sip 'n snacks" and when I got to the checkout counter, the clerk began to chat with me (I know her). Then, right in the middle of everything, she asked if I wanted some misprinted MM's tickets. Man, I was actually floored because this was the second time it's happened to me...AND AT THE SAME STORE! Last time, I just passed the tickets up and thought nothing of it.

          This time, though, I just got a good feeling that I needed to take them...and I did. It was $10 worth of MM's tickets for tonight's draw. If it's my time, GREAT! If it's not, then no love lost and no hurt feelings. However, I had an obligation to entertain the re-occurrence of events "just in case". The good part about the deal is that I saved the clerk from having to come out of her pocket for the misprints. I'm feelin' pretty good right now.

            I never had any luck with mistake tickets. I've read many stories about people winning big with them, but it never happened to me.  I still accept them because you never know.

              It would be a "mistake", to not accept a "mistake" ticket.  Please do not make this "mistake".  No No

                  I used to be offered mistake tickets all the time.  Then that store got a new manager and cashiers and now there are a lot less.  In fact, I'd say they're now rare.  I never won a thing off of the ones I bought.

                    Mistakes are unavoidable.  Who knows, that "mistake"will give you thousands of bucks...
