Does anyone use the lottery machines to check if you have winning tickets?

why not? all of the information is on the bar code. I usually cross off numbers that don't match. As long as the bar code is readable the lottery officials can get all the information they need.

I don't want to deface the ticket. May be not a big deal for a 50 dollar winner but if I win the jackpot, I definitely wouldn't want to take the risk.

    i quite often circle my numbers with a pen, when i have losing tickets i still take em to the store and check in the machine. sometimes if the place is quiet ill ask the clerk to check em too. Rememeber tho here in australia, we get to  store our entries on a players card, or more likely recourd our names and contact details with lotteries. on their database,  we just have a card for them to match our info with the ticket purchase.  so if i do that i still check losers on the machine.

     back in the day , when machines where not here, i somehow let a few winners past and prob hav received a few checks in the mail from winners.  about $15 or so so lowest prizes i some how missed.


    pretty good for 20+ years of playing.
