If somebody gave me a ticket with their name on the back as a gift, I'd go get a ticket with the same numbers and then burn the one with their name on it in front of them.

I can't stand cheapskates and chiselers.

I Agree!   A gift is a gift.

        Buy scratch tickets in a place where a clerk looks dumb, because if he is smart, he, probably, cracked them scratchies already and sells only empty ones or low win.

                I only give lottery tickets as presents to MYSELF because I am making up for all of the dual Christmas / birthday presents I received growing up as well as never having had a birthday party thrown on my behalf (who wants to go to a birthday party when they have a load of Christmas presents under their tree and it is snowing and raining sleet outside?).  So when I win the big jackpot, I will throw myself a nice Christmas party vacation trip to wherever my heart desires...have passport and definitely will travel!  See all of my friends at the next reunion with all the stories (some made up to protect the innocent) of my excursions!

                Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                    I think it would be very cool to have winning ticket , say it won some modest money, and while knowing it, give it as a gift, without revealing, of course. That is like double gift, because you offer the person all the excitement of  realizing they won, on top of money. I doubt anything else can bit that.

                      here you have to scratch off the barcode to check if a  scratchy is a winner.

                       

                      i guess you could buy a dozen or so. and just scratch the barcodes and toss out the losers.

                       

                      any you get as winners you stuff in stockings.

                       

                      and you and the  receiver still dont know what the prize will be!

                       

                      hehehe i might actually do that for next year.

                          I used to get my Dad scratchers all the time, he enjoyed them and thats all that mattered.

                          Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

                            In Idaho you can scan the barcode at the vending machines and it'll tell you how much it's worth, up to a certain value.  I scanned a $100 ticket a few months ago and it just said to take it to a clerk.  I would guess the cut off is $50 - if it's worth that or more, it won't give a value.  Under $50 and it'll say it's worth $xx and tell you to scan it again if you want to apply the value to your balance in the machine.

                              ahh we dont have vending machines. the  scanners are the same  Gtech ones ive seen on the news that dont scan correctly sometimes. i called our lotto   headquaters ad mentioned the news story,. they said, they run their own software so  should be any problems, but to check tickets myself if im at all worried.
