I had the same thing happen just this past Monday on a Pick 3 ticket. The clerk said as long as they can type in the serial
number above the barcode, there should be no problem cashing it. In a related story, long story made short, I washed my
wallet. So I decided to dry all my papers, and money in the micro wave rather than under a lamp. And there was no problem
at all. Except for the winning pick 3 ticket I had. The ticket burned, but they could type in the serial number and were able
to cash it. So it shouldn't be a problem, although with the big money involved they will probably take a real close look at it.
