Or do you brush it off with the thought " can't be me-l never win anything! "

    Rather strange no one thinks on this topic or has an opinion one way or another.  l know l have from time to time, but then again that's just me.

      I live in Kansas City, and I remember that the 587 million PB jackpot was sold in Missouri last year. My hopes are up a little but not by much.

        No, I never think that, the situation never comes up.

        I just don't understand how people can buy tickets and not check them. By the time a jackpot or large prize is annouced on the news, I'll have already checked my numbers on the website days earlier.

        You always see those stories of big winners sticking their tickets in a drawer or glove compartment and forgetting about them, and only checking days/weeks/months later after they hear about a winner in their area or store from a relative or clerk, etc.

        Maybe I need to adopt that No-Check "Winning Strategy" of buying tickets, and then I'll win! Bang Head

          Ha, yeah.

           

          I remember the dude that only had like $20 in his checking account when he won the 250 million powerball in Marshal, Missouri and he was walking to the gas station where he bought the ticket just holding it up and asking the workers there if that was the winning jackpot ticket. Wow really...it's a piece of paper that's worth 200 million.....and he was walking around showing it off.

            Well lm the direct opposite,  l have been playing for years and never check my tickets the same or next day, infact l could go for a good two weeks before l check them. But like I said,  maybe its just me.

                  I usually check my tickets first thing in the morining after my moring prayerBlue Angel. So I would know quit early if I was holding the winning ticket. Now hubby that's a different story he puts the tickets in his Bible and forgets  then i'm like did you check your tickets Bash.

                    I think I'd know I was a winner before I had a chance to read about it.

                        First thing I do is check the numbers with the winning powerball, then I go from there.
