I keep all my losing tickets. Just in case I need them and just in case I make a mistake.

        Most of my lottery tickets are kept online and they email me if I win but if I buy one from the store I keep it and give it a second look to make sure.

        2016 Won/Lost

        EuroMillions / Spent: £22 / Won £0 / Total -£22

        UK Lotto / Spent: £4 / Won: £0 / Total: -£4

        2016 Total: -£24

        Jan: -£22 Feb: £0 ~ Mar: £0 ~ April: £0 ~ May: £0 ~ June: £0 ~ July: £2

         

        EuroMillions = £2 Line / Played: x11 [old price] 

        EuroMillions = £2.50 Line / Played: x0

        UK Lotto = £2 Line / Played x2

            for tax purpose if I get a big win you  can deduct your lossses up to the winning amount but not over it

                ...every now and then I may keep a cash 5 dud or lucky4life.I played monday night and absolutely love the qp numbers even though they didn't hit.

                They truly look like a potential winning set of lottery numbers..so the next time I get the urge or have the money,I will replay them for sure.

                Same goes with PB

                      Yes I always kept them til. end of year for tax reasons,

                      after a recent win I found I should have kept them longer.

                      In some cases you can carry loses forward.

                        I'd vote yes on that also.

                        Don't argue w/Psyko

                          btw, if your state has replay program for losing scratch-off, you should keep the losing tickets after registering the ticket numbers. While you are not required to keep the tickets, it is better to keep them just in case there is any question about the tickets.

                            I keep the number draw tickets until they are passed the expiration date to redeem and try

                            and check them again the month before  they are set to expire, just in case I missed something. Then I pitch them. 

                            I used to save all of my Instant tickets, but now I toss them after the second chance drawing. NJ has a second chance drawing

                            where you can enter $10.00 of losing tickets and get a second chance to win. I usually wait a month after

                            the drawing in case I'm chosen as an alternate (since so far I haven't won), then give them one last check to

                            be sure that I didn't miss something, then I toss them.  :-)

                            Good Luck 2 all!!!

                              JB reminded me that I tend to keep the QP numbers too, even though I've been weeding some of those out lately.

                              I agree, they are good numbers to play again budget permitting.  ;-)
